Welp. That was bleak. And funereal, filled with lies, and starkly frightening.
When you hear a politician speak these words:
"I am your voice,..I alone can fix it...I will restore law and order."
You are hearing the echoes of decades past when small men with mustaches and men who spoke from balconies gave stiff-arm salutes and promised the very same things.
Trump delivered a dark, foreboding, negative, mendacious speech to the GOP convention, to America, and to the world.
Unlike Ronald Reagan, whose optimism gave the American people it's "Morning in America," the billionaire business man delivered it's "Doomsday in America Because America is Crap" harangue.
Fact checkers have already found dozens of lies in Trump's depressing apocalyptic vision that has little to no relation to reality. The USA is not the highest taxed country in the world, crime is not increasing, and cities are not rioting and burning all over America, etc., etc.
Trump spewed out a hideous diatribe that appealed to people who are immune to critical thinking and who have shown they want revenge and the scaffold to solve America's problems instead of thoughtful reasoning and cooperation. Trump's acceptance speech was another insight into the unstable mind and temperament of someone totally unfit for the serious job of the presidency.
The GOP has chosen a man who deals in lies that suit the moment he's in, a man who knows next to nothing about the U.S. Constitution, and a man who is intellectually lazy and not interested in learning about the things that a president should know.
May history never forgive the GOP for this monumental disaster they've forced on America.
