Cruz is a dirtbag but at least he isn't a racist stirring up the anger and fear of white supremacists. I'll take the guy who isn't basically trying to ban Muslims and Hispanics from America.

Of course, Sanders would be infinitely better than either one.

Cruz is more than a dirtbag. He's a scheming snake. He also publicly said he wants to carpet bomb ISIS and "make the sand glow in the dark". Trump has not said that.

Yeah instead, Trump says he'll take out their families...

Not that I'm defending either side, but at least carpet bombing would be slightly effective, there is no excuse for the purposeful targeting of mostly innocent families, which, would defy every basic human rights organization, UN, the Geneva Convention, Muslims, and also which the military would never do. That is evil. cruel, unnecessary,uneffective, evil.

Cruz would, if given the opportunity, do much worse to Muslims than Trump. Trump is much more centrist and less authoritarian.

Neither are favorable, and I'm a strong conservative

The Geneva Convention doesn't work unless everyone abides by it, and all of our enemies do not abide by it. There's literally no point in it at all. International deals and treaties are the most ineffective pieces of political BS in the entire world. I don't care about what the UN has to say either, it's also one of the most ineffective and useless organizations of all time except for sometimes the Security Council. When you have Human Rights commissions led by the likes of China and African nations, you know your organization is trash.

NEVER should an international organization trump an individual nation's political sovereignty.

Hmm, let's seee... a temporary ban cause the govt is incompetent, or... permanent carpet bombing...cause I like bombs.

Think I'll just go ahead with option A here....

Even assuming each candidate literally meant what they said, these aren't accurate comparisons in the slightest, and I think you know that.

Trump said he would temporarily ban Muslims from entering the country. Cruz said he would carpet bomb ISIS (not all Muslims like your analogy is implying). Neither is a viable option. Carpet bombing would have been fine in World War II when laser guided smart technology didn't exist, but it's obviously not an option now.

I don't have a problem with banning some immigration from certain countries though - but unfortunately that's not what Trump said, although I feel that is likely what he meant. And I don't think Cruz necessarily meant he would literally carpet bomb ISIS. I'm fairly certain he was implying he would do what is necessary to eliminate them.

Let's just all agree that Cruz and Trump would make the absolute worst Presidents and none of their ideas would get passed in Congress.
