    2 soap opera stars, the 400+th ranked golfer (womens) in the world, What a joke. Trump family on parade. It's perspective. If you want to love it, you will. Sad. Trump/Pence were on 60 minutes tonight. That too was sad. I am planning to watch but with the same interest that I would have for a circus/side show. Huuuge stars.

    I watched bits and pieces of the evening. To me it sure appeared that every speaker (except Milania Trump) was instructed to show hate for Hillary. In fact the convention speakers could be characterized more for their hate for Secretary Clinton than for anything substantive on the Republican plans to "make America great again". Line of the night: "lock her up, lock her up, lock her up." Lt General Michael Flynn...hater-in-chief for the night. Wow, what a hater...

    Yes Schmidt, I hope some voters wake up and see the real face of the Republicans; it makes me puke. I guess they should lock up all these "generals" as in Turkey. I hope T.J. who accused me of being negative about this country, that he sees that I was absolutely right that half this country's people are uneducated evil-gelical rednecks.

    What better way to excite a base who hates their nominee than repeatedly reminding them that they hate Hillary Clinton more?

    The Republicans are going down an extremely dangerous road by calling for politicians to be locked up in prison. Not just that, but having that rallying cry during a national convention. They don't even know what she deserves to be in prison for. It's just that she needs to be in prison. End of sentence.


    The Republican Party is starting to remind me of an authoritarian leader of a third world country who will stop at nothing to silence any and everyone who disagrees with them. Can you imagine what might happen when Attorney General Ted Cruz has the total authority to conduct any sort of witch hunt that he wants and use the power of the Federal Government to go after anyone who sent a mean Tweet President Trump's way?

    I love fact check .org

    Perhaps for some it's not about being accurate or truthful but really believing what was said.

    edit/add: A Nazi salute........ typical.
