@Daru (*shudder*) It's a tricky comparison, I think.

Cruz would like to revoke a lot of civil rights and try to formalize our already problematically undemocratic theocratic leanings, but on the flip side, he'd probably pursue a relatively isolationist foreign policy, so at least the "Republic of Gilead"-style horrors he propounds would be confined to within our borders.

Trump, though... _His_ version of megalomania involves the whole world. And given his inflammatory approaches to things, his anger issues, and his barely-coherent understanding of foreign policy, it's hard not to see his idée-fixe version of "making America great again" as a lot more potentially dangerous to the stability of _other_ countries and conflicts.
