  1. Please publish prominently who believes in Sharia law and to what extent – child brides ok, stoning women ok, or Sharia schools only ok for boys? Do they believe they hav a right to establish Sharia zones where Sharia law trumps U.S. law, like those in the U.K.?

    1. The majority do. As well as the other branches of Islam. Some are Islamist Radicals. Others just deluded, and brainwashed by the Socialists.

    2. This is all bad for America and should not be allowed for any of then to run and want to change OUR COUNTRY in any way. If they don’t like it here and our laws a way of life, they need to go back to their original country. That also includes those born here.

  2. This is problematic. Many of these candidates openly admit they are running in an effort to form ‘their America’ and either have worked for or are backed by organizations that have the same vision. They are not interested in progressing the USA into a better place for all. It is difficult to believe their claims when they are supported by people who would gladly take civilization back in time. Do not trust these people.

    1. This scared me to have people who no longer believe the constitution only running to change things for what they came from… Our fore fathers are turning over in their grave. Watch who you vote for!

    2. Totally agree as do the majority of people here in the reddest county, in the reddest state in the nation…Alabama! (Baldwin County, Alabama) People need to look deep into the affiliations and background of all candidates. Any true Muslim cannot and should not live in the United States of America as it is the antithesis of Sharia Law. How they can “adapt” is beyond me other than to change America into a Muslim country….and look at the Muslim countries of the world….hmmmm…seems to me America is the better place to be. We should hold tight to the Constitution as it is literally under attack from the left/democrats/progressives/whateverthehellyouwanttocallthem….Culturally, there is a lot of sentiment in the South to secede …. we may be inching to a cultural (un)civil war in this country. That said, you can evacuate the good people from California (shouldn’t take too long…) and let them secede from the United States and form their own country. They can dig up Jerry Garcia for Prez and the Grateful Dead (those still alive…) can form the Cabinet. Now, that’s what I call ‘progress’!

  3. You missed Virginia’s Qasim Rashid, who is running against Cong. Rob Wittman, for what reason?

    Not a one of them, including Qasim Rashid, whom I have had lengthy respectful conversations with, and is challenging Rep. Rob Wittman, is an Independent, or Conservative. Let alone a Republican.

    I have yet to find a one of these Muslims who have been ADOPTED BY AMERICA, that have embraced American Culture in their duties, over their Islam Religion! this includes Mr. Rashid above, who I am sure will be deeply offended and perplexed at my disappointment in him, after what he did for me last March.

    Not a one of them understands, let alone readily accepts their Social & Constitutional Obligations to America, over Islam & the biography called the Qur’an beliefs.

    It is readily apparent in their postings alone, that Every Single One of Them, absolutely hates President Donald J. Trump, his Administration, and many of our Constitutions, Articles & Amendments.

  4. You might want to consider this.

    The Muslim conquest of Persia, also known as the Arab invasion of Iran, led to the fall of the Sasanian Empire of Iran in 651 and the eventual decline of the Zoroastrian religion. The rise of Muslims coincided with an unprecedented political, social, economic, and military weakness in Persia.

    1. Fuck muslims dogs to hell killers go home there it trying to change our country for personal reasons themselves go home if you hate it here. Not a shithole Muslim country never will ww3 will happen exterminate those real infadeals not us USA those left muslims evil foul words make fun bad mouth USA laws as it people they want their shit country life in USA a copy no shirea laws go home in your face I’ll say. Omar fuck yourself MI. Muslim tib screw you smart punk mouth do nothing ever steal money just like President Trump said truth. I’m glad he pisses the left off so much it means it’s working he works lazy left trying to fire innocent President Trump 4 years only waste work they done. Fuck muslims running dump race people of killer loser religion like all demoshits dictators do nothing get paid that illegal wrong go home form your own country leave USA alone assholes. Love it or leave it usa your dumb fucks left muslims fuck p.c. police ok not sick of you fucking up my country we need a civil war the Republicans will win we got the guns funds

  5. If they don’t like it here and want to change our constitution for their own believes then let them go back to the countries they come from if they Love that way of life better. Instead of trying to change our country into the countries they come from. They are nuts. No muslims will be voted in local state or federal.

  6. It’s time to consider changing terms of eligibility for congressional offices. They should mirror requirements for the office of the President of the United States of America. Native born citizen. Minimum of 35 years old. Maximum of two terms in office.

  7. My take on this is how can these people expect to represent americans when they Segregate from us on the demand of their religion, and are taught to look down on non believers in all ways. They cannot represent us, only what their own culture and people want. That’s not our way. They are trying to infiltrate and take advantage of us. No muslim will get my vote. Sorry, but muslims bring too much baggage with them to be trusted.

  8. It is far past time, for the Eligibility Requirements to run for office were changed. Because of today’s immaturity levels in adults, I would suggest upping the Minimum Age to 35. At the least a 2nd Generation American Born & Raised citizen, be applied for all Public Offices.
    Reasoning: Maturity development.
    * It is a known fact that the former Administration lowered that, by allowing parents to keep their children on the parents Health Plans, until age 26. This indicates, as well as enables, a decline in Personal Responsibility & Mental Maturity levels of that target age group. (Laziness for short)
    * A Citizen does not have enough Real Life experience to successfully draw upon, in making decisions that benefit America, and its Citizenry, in accordance with the Constitutions of States & Nation.
    * No Foreigner can possibly understand America’s Exceptionalism. In most cases, they either cannot, or will not separate their former nations Culture, and readily adopt the American Culture & Language.

    Furthermore, I call for a Total Ban on Socialism, Communism, and any other ideology that is the antithesis of our Constitutional Republic.

  9. All I see is ZOG behind this betrayal. Increase in the Muslim demographic and involvement in US politics.
    Order out of chaos……Ultimately leading to Anti-Christian Noahide Law which is already underwritten in US Law.
    Beware of ‘Schlomo’ behind the curtain!

  10. If you folks are concerned that a smattering of Muslim candidates will change America you need to read Ford’s Jewish Question. You have no clue whatsoever of what’s going on in your own backyard.

  11. The emphasis muslims place on their beliefs & values completely contradict America’s Constitution. People entering public office should be supporters of our values & our Constitution. To allow anything else is TREASON! It’s time to bring back hanging to those who commit TREASON by working to end or change our CONSTITUTION!
    I find it interesting & telling that these muslims are living here, taking advantage of our way of life, yet desiring to change our country! NO ONE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO RUN FOR OFFICE WHEN THEY SEEK TO THROW OUR CONSTITUTION AWAY! How can these people take our services, yet have such contempt for our country, & then gloat when they are elected. Current muslim office-holders show their treasonous contempt for our values every day. That behavior is showing their contempt while they behave in ways that are obviuosly unprofessional for their position. Pelosi has showed her unprofessional conduct numerous times. Citizens need to start writing to the House, Senate, White House & Offices of Professional Conduct to protest these people being in public office! We all cannot vote against them, but our voices can be heard by flooding the House, Senate, President, & Offices of Professional Regulation with reasonably written letters concerning these people’s conduct while in office. These people have no understanding of how our elected officials are NOT OUR BOSSES. WE ARE THEIR BOSS, IN EVERY SITUATION! They will only win if we allow them to by INACTION! Complaining on Facebook does nothing! We must begin by writing letters! It has been done for 244 years & IT WORKS! There are positions in our government that oversee these issues but you have to contact them!
