You are from my area, I bet you and I could solve more problems over a beer, than our government has done in the last four years. We veer different directions, but I do not think that our hope for our children or grandchildren are that far apart. Based on what you have written on ATS, am guessing your social status is much higher than mine, so if going for a beer you are buying first round.

It will be just as tedious as the last two nights.

Seriously? He's going to say "Hate and fear Hillary." He will have nothing at all to say about Donald Trump.

I see a whole lot of disappointed folks in November when she wins by a landslide in the electoral college. Republicans have last their f'n minds.


No, Republicans have lost their party. Speaker after speaker tried to invoke conservative values without ever mentioning Trump's name. Then Trump's cronies would take the podium, spit venom at Hillary, and even lead the frenzied crowds in chants reminiscent of "Sieg Heil!"

This is the GOP's darkest hour. They know that Trump's closet is about to disgorge a flood of skeletons that will make Hillary look like a girl scout in comparison, and they don't have the war chest to combat the negative ads in the crucial markets... or even the desire to raise the funds for a candidate they don't believe in.

The connection to Lucifer was a bit strange to see at a convention to say the least.

As for Carson's use of Allinsky to attack Clinton - well if she did meet with Allinsky in the 60's as claimed and she did study his work extensively then it's probably a good thing to know. He did actually use Allinsky's rule 12 on her though, which as a student I am sure she would have appreciated!


* RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

I must admit I was unable to watch the whole thing... if you set aside the kids who said "my daddy is awesome," there was very little said about Trump, his good points, and nothing at all about his policies.

Meanwhile the reaction by the MSM, especially CNN and MSNBC is very telling. They have continually mocked the people speaking that were not politicians, laughing arrogantly as if normal people have no right to speak and anything they do say would be silly.

I don't think they realise the kind of elitism and arrogance they are showing is actually strengthening Trump. It's actually quite sickening to hear them when they try and discredit someone for NOT being a corrupt politician.

Also not true. His kids said a lot about him of course (including his policies) and everyone else (bar 1) mentioned Trump, with about 50% of them mentioning at least 1 policy in contrast to Clinton. It sounds like you may have listened to some MSM summary and taken it as accurate (big mistake)

I also think your comment about his kids conveying 'my daddy is awesome' is short of the mark. Donald Trump Jr gave a brilliant speech and full of policy substance. Goes to show that non politicians actually have a better read on what needs to be done.

BlueAjah gave an excellent summary of each speech as it happened. Try reading those and then delve deeper into the speeches by finding each clip. It's pretty poor form to make sweeping statements about the convention and then admit you didn't actually watch it all (I suspect you watched a fraction of it, if any)

I've skimmed BlueAjah's posts. I see Trump employees praising his qualities but I don't see any policy statements, just promises that he is better than Hillary. Could you post a quick summary of his actual policies (as opposed to slogans and promises)? Does anyone explain how he is going to get Mexico to pay for the wall? Does anyone explain where the money for the "super vetting" of immigrants is going to come from? An explanation of how he will force utilities to use more coal to create jobs in West Virginia when natural gas is more economical?

Refer to his site for is policies.
If you are looking for a gannt chart though you won't find it - rightly so. If you are looking for a budget breakdown on paying for the wall, you won't find it - rightly so. If you are looking for the project plan for deportation then you won't find it - rightly so. If you are looking for the details of how coal will be consumed then you won't find it - rightly so.

All the speeches are online so you can watch them.

There are some valid criticisms of the convention last night - it was supposed to be about 'Make America Work Again' but it became muddled. However, making things up because you don't like Trump is disingenuous.

When your justice system decides to turn a blind eye to Hillary's crime, it's up to you people, to see justice being served.
