For four consecutive days, August 17-21, the Democrat Party played with the minds and emotions of the American people. Every minute of every hour of their virtual convention was driven by an agenda filled with negativity and animosity.
Rather than tell us their plans for this nation, they spent all their time blaming Trump and his administration of the very things they were/are guilty of as individuals and an organization.
The Democrats railed against President Trump and blamed him for everything they could concoct in their moments of self-loathing. They could not bring themselves to give President Trump any credit for any of the progress of this nation while he has been president. Their efforts to make American voters believe that President Trump has been a total and complete failure is disingenuous and mind numbing.
The people of this nation were not blind to their actions of the last four years as the Democrats harassed this President from the day he was elected right up and through the four days of this Democrat convention.
The Democrats speaking during this virtual convention acted as if they believe the American people didn’t pay attention to their vicious accusations and baseless investigations: the Kavanuagh hearings, Russian collusion investigations, and their ceremonial “made for TV production,” a.k.a. the impeachment proceedings. All of which were designed to hinder President Trump’s efforts to lead and protect the country.
Well, despite all these contrived obstructions and fabricated obstacles, this President has implemented domestic and foreign policy changes during his first term that have made this country safe, strong, and prosperous.
President Trump took actions to roll back regulations so industry could prosper which created the lowest unemployment rate, for every demographic group, in decades. He grew and strengthened our military, prevented wars, destroyed ISIS, made us energy independent, removed the Obamacare penalty tax, and so much more.
For the past four days and nights we heard these words repeatedly: love, empathy, unity, decency, respect, Covid death totals, and life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But, what they did not want to talk about:
• The millions of aborted babies who never got a chance at life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness … rights given to us by God.
• The looting, riots, and murder of men, women and children in Democrat-led cities.
• The attack on our country’s history and culture.
• Violent assaults on men and women of law enforcement.
• China’s role in creating the pandemic and their quest to surpass the U.S. as the economic and military leader of the free world.
• That in America, “All Lives Matter.” Something that they are all to scared to say despite taking an oath to defend and protect all American citizens.
Warning! Beware of what they are not saying. During the convention the Biden-Harris campaign platform was never revealed. When you take the time to review it, what you will come to know is this: If Trump is not reelected, come 2021 and beyond, you and I will be living in the “United Socialist States of America.”
Remember, even though they constantly refer to America as a “democracy,” this is totally wrong. America is a constitutional republic, and it is worth fighting for!
In closing, I am compelled to say that the stakes are very high in this election. As you decide whom you will support in this election make an informed choice. Make a choice based on what you know to be the facts, not the fear mongering and lofty “pie in the sky” promises.
