Part #2…The republicans go to the ‘dark side’ and democrats use the ‘force’ to build a better tomorrow

August 1, 2016


Many who have been following my postings for a while may have noticed a distinct lack of rhetoric on my part with reference to those running for president. Besides the fact that I think nether of the two remaining candidates are worthy of the office I believe that those of you who read my writings have a wealth of common sense and can see for yourselves what must be done in November. On the flip side I can not forgo the chance to point out what I believe is the pertinent facts reveled in their acceptance speeches. I apologize in advance because this posting is longer than the usual pithy remarks you have come to appreciate.

Almost every news agency reported that Donald Trumps acceptance speech was dark and depressing and that Hillary’s speech was full of hope and direction for the future… well for the first time in quite a while the news media was correct! Trumps speech was definitely somber but was it wrong for someone seeking the highest office in our nation to speak the truth? Would you prefer that he invented facts that make it appear that our country is moving in the right direction?

Trump set the tone of his acceptance speech by beginning it by saying, “Our Convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation. The attacks on our police, and the terrorism in our cities, threaten our very way of life….The most basic duty of government is to defend the lives of its own citizens. Any government that fails to do so is a government unworthy to lead”.

He went on to list the litany of of problems you and I face in our daily lives. “From violence in our cities where in the Presidents home town of Chicago there have been over 2000 victims of shootings despite some of the most stringent firearm laws in the nation, to improving the condition of those living in Americas inner cities. For over a decade Trump said the administration has failed those living there on education, jobs and crime but has ensured their dependence on the government by continuing to expand social welfare benefits… so that today we have 43 million people on food stamps despite having our national debt doubled to more than 19 trillion dollars.”

On the world stage trump has vowed that “we will build our military back to one that does not back down from confrontation so we will not have to ever again witness our sailors being forced to their knees by Iranian captors, forcing us to sign a deal with Iran to give back 150 billion dollars. Or to stand idly by while our embassy in Libya was attacked and our ambassador and staff were murdered.”

Trump stated, “Here at our convention, there will be no lies we will honor the American people with the truth, and nothing else. We cannot afford to be so politically correct anymore. The problems we face now – poverty and violence at home, war and destruction abroad – will last only as long as we continue relying on the same politicians who created them…On January 20th of 2017, the day I take the oath of office, Americans will finally wake up in a country where the laws of the United States are enforced”.


my two cents.

    First of all to Del, sorry about my omission of Obamacare in the Hillary speech response.! LOL! And don’t forget the Iran screwjob. As for this, if speaking the truth about the present state of our nation is “going to the dark side” so be it. I’d rather hear the truth (& I believe this is, just look around) than be soft-soaped by someone who is either lying (true) or living on a different planet than the rest of us. The Democrat party has been hi-jacked by radical socialists from the 60s in my opinion. I’m sure you know we’ve had plenty of violence here in the Twin Cities. They’re still blocking the street in front of the gov’s mansion; of course he’s an enabler of this nonsense, too.

    If you have the chance see Hillary’s America do it. It will chill you.

    While Trump brings up some good points, he totally fails in his style of communication which greatly affects me and more than likely will affect our foreign relations. He’s a narcissist and can’t contain his personality disorder, unfortunately. He’s on the right path in many ways and he could’ve won this election….but of course I don’t really believe he’s in it to win it (so to speak). He can’t close the loop and focus on what’s important. He keeps interjecting these crazy things he says and lashing back at people at a time where he could’ve taken advantage of things and made a case as to why he should become president. What scares me most is the riots after whoever gets elected. This world has become so divided economically and racially. Scary times!
