I agree.  Everything I disagree with should be banned.

I don't agree with their wacky ideology at all but refresh my memory: who has the Nation of Islam killed?

This is purely anecdotal 

My neighborhood had a picnic, and there was a table for Marylanders for Trump. Literally not one person went to the Trump table. Nobody would even talk to them.



It's not exactly a prime Trump demographic (like 50% white and all UMC), but not one person? Maybe they're just worried about becoming pariahs by looking like they're interested in Trump.

Crunching the numbers will tell the tale. Don't forget to normalize for population proportion.

Yes 1% of population commits 60-65% of ideologically inspired murders, so they are overrepresented at 60x rate, yet the white man is the devil again. Makes total sense!!!

Peer pressure. That is why no one is expecting a Brexit.

And what if we take into account all murders? What is the difference at the end of the day between different types of violence, does it affect the victims and their families? You are more likely to die in your bathtub than by an act of terrorism, and near-daily rampant violence across the country is eschewed to make a political point here and there. Remove "terrorism" from total violence, is there a significant drop, even in your arbitrary timelines?

On the flip-side, "ideologically inspired" is a buzzword meaning one thing and only that, because where a sick anti-theist who rants against religions guns down three muslims execution-style in their apartment he is given a pass because he called it a dispute over a parking space.

Depends on the county. PG? Not so many Trump supporters. I can see lower Montgomery County residents being afraid to be seen supporting Trump. But upper Montgomery County and heading into Frederick County?

That is true US government killed more US citizens than any terrorist organisation. But unfortunately we cannot deny Visa to Congress and throw them out.

I will bet you literally any amount of money that Maryland is not going to vote for Trump. You can even have odds.

Yeah, lower MoCo.


Something like 10k people from MoCo showed up to vote for Trump in the primaries. Obviously they exist. They're just...quiet about it.

Well, if we remove enough distinctions, we'll eventually get the result people want.

Murders in Chicago do not change the global impact to security screening in airports. They do not compel our President to murder people with drones.

Cherry picking too much? It's because Perot polled as high as 39% (good for 1st place) in the summer before he dropped out and before getting back in the race in September.
