I'm sure the whole ISIS thing has generated great political talking points for both sides, but seriously: if there are terrorists who are bent on taking over America *in* America, please arrest them. It doesn't frighten me into wanting to adjust our foreign policy, it frightens me that there are Republicans who would use that to scare us into demanding we intervene in the Mid-East.

Just like police watch "known drug houses" and bully the public through warrantless checkpoints and unreasonable searches and seizures, why don't they just arrest criminals where they find them swiftly and precisely?
I am an American, I do not act on fear but on reason. This is my position, and I will not be easily swayed.
