Voting Trump doesn't make me a bigot any more than voting Clinton made you an adulterer. Dems, recognize that it's more than just the uneducated whites that voted Trump, and don't just write us off.

@a1 you've been blinded by racism, xenophobia, and bigotry. We have over 12k gun deaths every year yet we need a registry for a religion for a small handful of extremist attacks?

Did you even bother to look up what our current vetting standards are? They are no joke whatsoever and trump never was able to define what additional measures would take place.

We will never eliminate the risk of terrorism but what country are we if we don't hold true to our most basic principles? What country do we have if we start tracking our own citizens based on their religious beliefs? Insanity, this must be what 1933 Germany felt like, luckily we have a more educated and bigger base of people who share my views.

@P1 I haven't been blinded by anything and to say a small handful of extremist attacks is casuistry. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Islamist_terrorist_attacks - this list doesn't include smaller attacks that didn't get press coverage. BTW, you should read a Dabiq magazine article about why Islamic Terrorists hate us.

@SC1 I believe in profiling (this includes me) -- countries visited recently, social media posts, age, etc.

@D5 minority groups have privileges too ex: affirmative action

I can elaborate and defend everything that I've stated here comprehensively but it's late and I want to sleep. If you still think I'm a bigot for voting for Trump, that's ok. Post it on your FB and I'll click the like button.

Go ahead and call me an idiot. Dems did that for a year and are now shocked that they didn't see Trump's presidency coming, because you bullied us into not discussing our logic. It takes a much more intelligent person to try to understand the other side than it takes to just bash them.

The fact that you suggest that adultery can be transitive between people shows that you have no handle on logic or reason. It's quite logical to conclude that Trump's supporters agree with his bigoted ideas based on their support for the candidate. If you can't see that, I don't know how to help you.
