"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Then the questions would be:
1. Do we waterboard him if he behaved uncooperatively?
2. Do we send him to Gitmo?
Now the question is:
3. Should he get the death penalty?
4. Or... does the Obama administration use him as another tool to assault Bush?
I AM DEPLORABLE.
NEVER CRIMINAL HILLARY (S-NY)
He's a US Citizen he is entitled to Miranda rights regardless if anyone likes it or not.
Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
I could simply state "When done wiping your ass with my constitution, remember to flush twice. "
But that wouldn't address the points, be intellectually dishonest of me, and might get me banned from DP, so I'll put more thought into it.
[emphasis mine]What about the pursuit of life liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?
LIBERTY. The guy is a U.S CITIZEN, AND HAS RIGHTS.
I don't care what he has done, hasn't done, been accused of, whatever.
Our penal system, our laws - including RIGHTS to the accused citizen MUST be upheld if we want to have any shred of true moral high ground, IMO.
Innocent lives never justify completely throwing away the constitutional rights of a man accused of a high crime.Innocent lives are worth more than one fools feelings and rights. If convicted of the crime he should be interrogated using "harsh" methods.
How is this attitude any different in terms of foolishness than that which allows people urinating in public, or two underage lovers [or the classic girl 1 year under consenting age with 18/19 yr old boyfriend] to have their lives ruined by being placed on the sex offender list?
Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.
Too bad you're an American. You stand for everything we're supposed to be against.
One of you will end up here next!
The price of citizenship is to adhere to the principles of your country, sometimes that means people have to die, but that is true patriotism and as I said, the price of citizenship, citizenship must garuntee the same protections for all, or it does not work.

There are cases where someone should fall on a sword and illegally question, interrogate or dare I say, waterboard. This wasn't one of those cases.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
