We would not be in this mess if it weren' t for obama and now clinton. It seems that they are firstly the ones to blame, as they have welcomed people here unlawfully! They never came here as to become citizens as many people before them did. They have come here to get the benefit s of ssi, free food, free housing, free child care, free college, free medical, free 2 year working papers, drivers license, etc. Plus, they can work off the books and make more money, not paying taxes! Only an illegal alien would know why they would do such a thing! That is why we have immigration laws!! It does not matter what nationality anyone is! That is the reason why we have laws here! To keep things in orderand flowing along! Not only does Mr. Trump feel this way, but millions of people do. The north and the south borders need to be protected! The obamas have used all illegals for his own benefit s. Same as Clinton! She thinks all minorites are stupid! If you really knew what she has been doing in Columbia you would not be voting for her. Watch Clinton CASH on YouTube or the movies hillarys america. What an eye opener! Besides, Trump wants to get rid of all the murders, kidnappers and thieves! To send them back! Did you know that Bill Clinton sent back thousands of illegals when he was president! I didn't hear hillary making a big stink about it then!
Now she is because it is Trump! She is playing a game and you are her pawns !

Michelle Zuniga, based on your comments you are an illegal, or you have family, and friends who are. If we are all supposed to be equal than why is it OK for you to live here illegally, and others can't? What does your country do with illegals? Unfortunately our government has not kept up with this mess, and now it is huge, and some will suffer for it. I agree that is horrible. But that is not the fault of American citizens, or Mr. Trump. It is the fault of Obama, and his constituents. Blame them for your troubles. Blame Hillary because she is going to make it even worse. In regard to war, we are already in a war, and we won't win because of our current corrupt government cares more for protecting everyone's feelings, than the protecting their lives. If you really care for America, and I believe you do, encourage borders, rightful citizenship, building and supporting our military, and working to reduce illegal immigration. Immigration is important, it is the foundation of America. But 11 million illegals is just a takeover.

Dear Mr Trump, Please disregard all the negative people that only want to deviate from the issues at hand and create hatred and violence. You are above this and so are WE the people that stand behind you. I have however basically come to not watching TV anymore as because as my husband says "you are going to blow a gasket" I have never in 50 years seen such biased and outright loathing by the media. This tells me how much they are owned by lobbyists/special interest and the likes. YOU Mr Trump may be a very wealthy man but as for Riches. YOURS are in your business sense and down to earth personality. You have very articulate conversations but not so much as to make anyone feel uncomfortable. I truly believe you will make a GREAT President/Commander & Chief. One that all the citizen's of America will be proud of. Can not wait until the November election and I pray that the RNC and government does NOT try to intervene with your nomination as I believe there will be a revolution and many not nice things happening. We the people are DONE with politicians and political good old boys society, where they make the rules and we get them shoved down our throats. I personally want less Government in my life telling me how to live, what to buy and when,where and how. I work 50+ hours and pay my bills and do not ask for help. I do not wish to be told I MUST purchase anything. Thank you and good luck...we are all rooting for you!!! TRUMP 2016

Be strong Mr Trump! Do not back down now in anyway! Keep doing what you were doing, and being forceful and forthright at all times. I believe that you will come out on top! Do not let the others beat you down, just keep at it in what you have been doing right along. The ones that try to beat you down are afraid of you and know that you can do the job and get it done! So PLEASE do not back down now! May God Bless!

Mr. Trump, You have my full attention and based on the poles you have a lot of other people’s attention as well. This country has not seen a candidate that we could get behind in a very long time. I have been following you since the beginning and I agree with all your positions. I have not voted but one time in my life because none of the candidates have offered the potential for change that you have expressed and their all bought and paid for in my opinion. 

This country needs you in the White House! I would be willing to contribute my spare time to helping you get there. I bet there are over 100,000 people like myself out there. I believe If you were to ask for our help and give us was way to contact your people on national television then have some organizers ready with a plan / instructions as to what they could do to help, based on their strengths you would have an instant army of not just supporters but action type people that would sacrifice what extra time they have for such an important cause. It cant hurt to try and it may give you the lanslide you deserve.

Thank you

Mr. Trump:

First I want to explain and introduce myself. I am educated but I was in an accident in 2010 and suffered a Tramatic Brain Injury; therefore, it's very difficult for me to express my thoughts in a grammatically correct manner, very often. Please excuse any errors because I have a few points I feel are extremely important for your campaign.

RE: Recent Statements on stopping Muslims entry into US. 

First, I totally agree. Thank you for taking steps toward actual action to keep us safe. Second, the White House and Hillary Clinton are making public statements in response to your statements (probably all other candidates too) -using these two as examples- saying you are making grave mistakes by targeting an entire group of a religion....Could you please point out in response.....Obama and H. Clinton, my examples...have been doing the exact same thing for years!!! Why hasn't the White House made statements that they are in direct violation of the Constitution???? They have been on band-wagon attacks and leaders against all Gun Owners!! Isn't that the same thing??? It's an entire group!!! Innocent and guilty combined into one....isn't that a violation against our constitutional right to bare arms??? Also, what about all of the changes they've supported and allowed to make our country "politically correct" they said regarding Christianity....they removed prayer and religious freedoms for the group of Christians in this country to not offend other religious groups....isn't this an entire group on both sides of that coin. Wasn't this country founded on Christian views, ideas and policies? What about those religious freedoms they've infringed upon? Isn't that direct violations of our Constitution?

I'm making these points so that maybe people with tunnel vision that will buy their rhetoric and/or improve their own election support will look at the big picture...the correct picture. 

So far, our officials "political correctness" on terrorism in our country has done nothing but allow more innocent murders. It is time to take action and make changes! I'm proud to support your statements and your campaign. I want terroristic murders in our country stopped. I don't want to to be afraid to leave my home or go to the mall or grocery store because of a possible attack. All our officials want to talk about everything and make us sound perfect but no one has the spine to take action. Mr. Trump, they need to be reminded that no one on this Earth is perfect! Nor or anyone's actions but it's time to do something....a year from now, it might not have been the perfect solution but it would have been the best option to do at that time! I could ramble on but I hope I've made my points I strongly feel or important to the everyday citizen in this country. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read my thoughts.

  I,m amazed that there is someone in the running for president who has a sensable attitude. It seems that our current leaders are living in an air tight bubble and are out of touch with the country. I,m not sure if it,s too late to steer clear of total disaster regardless who we get to lead us and hopefully serve this country rather than condemn it to further ruin. I do know one thing. We can,t have any more anti - Christian, anti - American leadership from now on if there is any chance for national salvation. To put things very bluntly. Hilary Clinton scares the bejesus out of me with her ineptness, lofty ideology which is awfully vague and her deliberate cover up of the Bengazi attack. In referrence to last scary part, does anyone really see that the attack at  Bengazi happened on the 11th anniversary of the 911 attacks that brought us in the war on terror? Hmm, how can anyone with a brain believe the Bengazi attack was inspired by an anti Mohammud film production and not a REAL ACT OF TERROR?      As for the liberally controlled media, I don,t believe squat about what they are saying about you Mr Trump. It,s funny that they make every effort to avoid explaining away how our current administration misuses it,s power along with our tax dollars and how just about every desision made has been wrong.

  In closing, I want to congladulate you on your firm stance for our once great but now foundering republic. I hope and pray you win the Republican nimination and that you win this upcoming 2016 presidential election. 

  Thank You.
