The Democrats had their 2020 virtual convention last week and the Republicans started their virtual convention this week

TrumpBiden2020electionTo sum up the nomination process for the November 3rd 2020 presidential election in a short paragraph is foolhardy, but that doesn’t prevent me from opining on the week long telethons. I expected both parties to come out with their vision for America and to at least give the leader-to-be’s vision, plans and goals?

Unfortunately besides the, elect former-VP Joe Biden because he’s a nice guy … and because he is not Donald Trump, I’m not sure exactly what the Democrats have planned for the next 4-years? We hear non-stop about Climate Change, the Green New Deal, eliminating fossil fuels, more spending for infrastructure, police brutality, more dollars for education and some free stuff like college and healthcare … and of course amnesty for illegals and loan forgiveness for students with college debt … DEMConvention2020but I’m still not sure that has come from the nominee himself or even his VP pick Kamala Harris? On one day I hear Joe Biden say he wants money to be redirected from police, yet on another he claims he does not want to defund law enforcement? Hm?  Besides eliminating the Trump trade negotiation, disagreeing with the international successes, stricter border enforcement and enforcing current immigration laws, he as also talked about adding back regulations and rolling back the tax cuts  … how exactly would a Biden/Harris administration improve the US economy, unemployment and create jobs?

On the other hand, the majority of the Democratic National Convention was spent on bereding President Trump; personally I thought the nastiness coming from President Obama and the former first lady was unbecoming … especially commenting “He’s shown no interest in putting in the work.” Huh? I’ve never seen a President work so hard.

Prior to Monday night (8/24), I thought Gov Mike Huckabee summed it up …GOPConvention2020

… but then after night one of the Republican National Convention and listening to the positive unity from most of the speakers, I felt much more positive. From the impressive “Cotton to Congress” comments of South Carolina’s Sen Tim Scott to the emotional reflection from a Cuban refugee about the “greatness of America” … and reminder from Donald Trump Jr as to the accomplishments of his dad’s administration in an very toxic environment. A couple well received comments regarding the left’s stereotype of President Donald Trump as “racist” came from football great Hershel Walker:

It hurt my soul to hear the terrible names that people call President Trump. The worst one is racist. I take it as a personal insult that people think I would have a 37-year friendship with a racist.

People who think that don’t know what they’re talking about. Growing up in the Deep South I’ve seen racism up close. I know what it is, and it isn’t Donald Trump.

What hit home for me though was Army Ranger veteran Sean Parnell, a congressional candidate for PA’s 17th district. It struck a cord with me and it may for you as well – this is my America. I’m ready for night two.
