RNC Night One

So having watched parts of each night of the DNC ( part curiosity and partly hoping there would be substance) I was struck by their overtly Doom and Gloom message that America sucks, it is totally messed up, always has been and needs a major overhaul. 

Last night the RNC opened it’s convention with a message in stark contrast to that of the Democrats. Here are my takeaways:

America is not all Doom and Gloom

America was not messed up from the Beginning

American founding principles make it the greatest nation ever 

Yes, America has problems, but they are solvable if we work together

We should be Proud to Be an American

There were some truly remarkable speeches made last night a few of my favorites were:

His line from Cotton to Congress was most memorable 

 

This Cuba Refugee’s emotional plea and LOVE of America was amazing

 

So Trump is a racist, just ask Herschel. 

 

This real life survivor story was powerful

And finally but not by any means least, 

Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed in the 2018 Parkland, Florida, high school shooting massacre (Sorry could not load video direct)
