Democratic Convention Ends in Unity

DNC_300X250_REV02Philadelphia – Last night the Democratic Convention ended with Hillary Clinton accepting the nomination for President of the United States. The Convention was a big success as Democrats united for Hillary Clinton and against Donald Trump. There was a stark difference in the Conventions. Shockingly, Republicans embraced Trump’s message of doom and gloom, while Democrats put on a flawless display of Americana reminiscent of 1980 Republican [Ronald Reagan] Convention. It was amazing to watch roles reverse as Democrats portrayed a message of hope and reminded Americans that America has always been great!

The Convention began as Bernie Sander’s supporters were given a lot of attention and time to vent their disappointment. Unlike the stop Trump movement in the GOP Convention where dissent was shutdown, the Democrats took great strides to bring the Sander’s supporters on board. According to polls during the Convention, they were successful by the midpoint of the Convention as 90% of Sander’s supporters were saying they would vote for Hillary Clinton.

President Obama started the attack on Donald Trump portraying him as a dangerous unstable figure and a friend of President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia. Some Democrats suggested Trump has authoritarian beliefs and spoke like a dictator when he said he alone could solve America’s many problems. He speaks as if he is promising to be a one-man ruler.

Hillary Clinton pounded Trump repeatedly for depicting the United States as a nation in decline and declaring, “I alone can fix it.” That sentiment, Clinton said, is inconsistent with democracy. She said that Trump’s proclamation should “set off alarm bells for all of us.”

“Remember,” she said, “our founders fought a revolution and wrote a Constitution so America would never be a nation where one person had all the power.”

On Thursday night, Khizr Khan, whose son, a Muslim and a United States Army captain, was killed fighting in Iraq, stirred the convention crowd as he denounced Trump’s lack of moral character by attacking unjustly attacking Muslims, calling it an offense against the Constitution. “Donald Trump, you’re asking Americans to trust you with their future,” Mr. Khan said. “Let me ask you, have you even read the United States Constitution?” Mr. Khan reached in his pocket and pulled out a copy of the Constitution and offered to let Trump read it.

It is obvious that Democrats and some Republicans intend to keep up their wall-to-wall assault on Mr. Trump’s worldview and fitness for office. During the Convention, Democrats reminded Americans that Trump is “not a normal Republican.”
