For me, it is a potential reason I may not vote.
Don't care at all for one person and the other person I'm not sure has a good handle on this particular situation.
This topic is very sensitive and has much potential for political discord....something that is very important to avoid, particularly here.
Of course, I hope and pray whomever is elected handles all the needs of our country, including this very difficult situation well and I will do my best to be supportive and I will be praying fervently.
We also should be careful not to label people who may have different views. I highly doubt very many Americans will vote for a candidate out of "fear". That's just not who we are, no matter which side of the political spectrum we fall on.
I will be voting for what I believe is best for the country, so terrorism and what the candidates plan on doing about it will definitely play a part in my decision. It is a scary thing, and it's healthy to be concerned. It is our reality now.
I'm afraid i doubt either candidate knows what to do about it. At least I have not heard anything realistic or that Congress will approve. Both parties, minus the two candidates, seem closer now, both wanting to seem sane, I guess. I don't think Congress will approve of anything extreme on either side.
I am not hopeful, and I agree that on all sides people will be voting out of fear. Not you, of course. I believe you, but many.
Since I don't feel either can stop these attacks, I am voting on other issues. And not with glee. I also am sad and wish we had better choices.
I'm glad I don't live in NY. Seems to be their favorite target. Although MN is just one state over...
