Carson and Rubio campaign on national security in Michigan

There was more to Ben Carson's visit Wednesday than I could cover in the article on his health care proposalsDoctor Pyramid also responded directly and indirectly to Donald Trump on the topics of national security and immigration, particularly The Donald's comments on Muslims.  WXYZ focused on those in Dr. Ben Carson stops in Detroit area.

Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson stopped in Ypsilanti for a campaign stop.
Carson was more direct with the Detroit Free Press in the newspaper's interview.
The proposal from fellow GOP candidate Donald Trump to shut the nation’s doors to Muslims, was a violation of the United States constitution which prohibits discrimination based on religion, he said.

Instead, “We need to monitor the Internet to a much greater extent for early warnings and put out different messages to show people there is a very different way. We need to attack their servers and use cyber warfare against them,” Carson said in an interview with the Free Press. “I’d also be working with Imams and clerics and say you’ve got to help us to identify people who are radicalize and encourage the moderate Muslim population to recognize that they play an important role.”
I agree with Carson, which I take as another example of a stuck clock being right twice a day.

Carson wasn't the only Republican candidate to visit Michigan Wednesday.  Marco Rubio made a stop in Oakland County, which WXYZ covered in Rubio campaigns in Waterford.

Senator Marco Rubio is campaigning in Waterford as he visits Michigan.
Between Carson and Rubio, it looks like the Republicans have decided to make national security and the threat from the Sith Jihad a major campaign issue.  After the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, I shouldn't be surprised.
