Donald Trump's "Muslim Ban" is unconstitutional.

julianarodham
ILikePie5

Our founding father based this nation on the freedom of religion, so why is a religion being singled out and "banned" from entering our country? Many people will argue that most terrorist attacks are carried out by Muslims, but that is simply not true. How could this possibly not be unconstitutional? The fact that anyone is being banned based on any similar trait is unconstitutional....

The symmetrical 3-point design is useful, but yet aesthetically pleasing, The human eye finds symmetry most appealing in all designs - this is evidenced by famous fashion trends. - Forks are more useful than Spoons. To review the primary uses of the Fork: Forks: (1) Can be used to cut; the sharp si...

paintballvet18

Government surveillance is a controversial subject. I, however, am on the cons point of view. What about privacy? The idea of government surveillance violates the fourth amendment directly. The United States citizens have a right to privacy. The government cannot commit unreasonable searches. While they would be going through our calls, texts, emails, and internet searches they would be violating that amendment. Not every single citizen in this country is a suspect of a crime. They have no r...
