Part #1…The republicans go to the ‘dark side’ and democrats use the ‘force’ to build a better tomorrow

July 31, 2016


This is part one of a three part posting on the two Presidential candidates. I have gone through their acceptance speeches and present for your consideration the more important comments they have made. Since I abhor long winded postings I have broken this posting up into ‘mentally’ bite sized offerings. Part one will unbiasedly deal with Mrs. Clinton’s acceptance speech, part two Trumps and part three my slightly skewed opinion on the candidates and the November election…enjoy!

In Hillary’s acceptance speech she remarked that, “Tonight we’ve reached a milestone in our nation’s march toward a more perfect union. The first time that a major party has nominated a woman for president!” Then she remarked, “Our country needs your ideas, energy and passion. That is the only way we can turn our progressive platform into real change for America.”

She went on to say, “Now America is once again at a moment of reckoning. Powerful forces are threatening to pull us apart. Bonds of trust and respect are fraying. We will not build a wall; instead, we will build an economy where everyone who wants a good job can get one. And we’ll build a path to citizenship for millions of immigrants who are already contributing to our economy.”

Mrs. Clinton then put forth some changes she promised to enact when she is elected President like, “Let’s begin with what we’re going to do to help working people in our country get ahead and stay ahead. My primary mission as president will be to create more opportunity and more good jobs with rising wages right here in the United States.” and “I believe climate change is real and that we can save our planet while creating millions of good-paying, clean-energy jobs.” and also, “I believe that when we have millions of hardworking immigrants contributing to our economy, it would be self-defeating and inhumane to try to kick them out. Or that comprehensive immigration reform will grow our economy and keep families together. And it’s the right thing to do.”

She went on to say, “In my first 100 days, we will work with both parties to pass the biggest investment in new, good-paying jobs since World War II and that Bernie Sanders and I will work together to make college tuition free for the middle class and debt free for all. We will also liberate millions of people who already have student debt.”

Mrs. Clinton ended her remarks with, “America’s strength doesn’t come from lashing out. It relies on smarts, judgment, cool resolve and the precise and strategic application of power. And that’s the kind of commander in chief I pledge to be.

We will work tirelessly with responsible gun owners to pass common sense reforms and keep guns out of the hands of criminals, terrorists and all others who would do us harm.

So let’s put ourselves in the shoes of young black and Latino men and women who face the effects of systemic racism and are made to feel like their lives are disposable!

And we will defend all our rights, civil rights, human rights and voting rights, women’s rights and workers’ rights, LGBT rights and the rights of people with disabilities.

So enough with the bigotry and the bombast. Donald Trump’s not offering real change, he’s offering empty promises. And what are we offering? A bold agenda to improve the lives of people across our country to keep you safe, to get you good jobs, to get your kids the opportunities they deserve.

Let’s look to the future with courage and confidence. Let’s build a better tomorrow for our beloved children and our beloved country. And when we do, America will be greater than ever!
Thank you, and may God bless you and the United States of America!

    It seems that Clinton knew all the right things to say, but how would the voters know that she will keep the promised to the voter if and when she is elected?

    “Towards a more perfect union”, yup the liberal utopia. “Progressive”, a nicer name for socialism. “Liberate millions of people from student debt.” who’s going to pony up for the debt?” Put ourselves in the shoes of black, Latino….” what about white people? “Pass the biggest investment in new good-paying jobs since WW2…” excuse me didn’t we already get that from Obama as in hundreds of millions of money for “shovel-ready jobs followed by Pelosi sponsoring a $26 billion jobs bill, followed by a $500million “investment” in Solandra which went bankrupt in less than 3 years. And the GDP has barely limped along at less than 2.0 growth.
    What the hell happened to all that money?

    I believe she hit every major Democratic ‘talking point’ in said speech; nothing like more of the same! She and her speech writers should be congratulated..?!?
