Republican National Convention

Have you been watching the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this week?   I watched the first night only because Country Guy wanted to, but then I was hooked.  I didn't expect it to be so inspiring, especially since I haven't been a Donald Trump supporter.  In fact, the only reason I was planning to vote for Trump was because 'no vote' is a vote for Hillary and there is nothing more repulsive to me than to think such a lying, corrupt, evil person as Hillary Clinton might one day be President of the United States.

I ended up watching every night and actually looking forward to each evening.  I was extremely impressed by the Trump family!  How amazing to have articulate, hard-working kids who actually loved and were proud of their dad!  Most rich kids we read about are spoiled, thinking only of themselves and not about what they can do to help others.

By the time the convention was over I actually had hope for our country again.  It was so refreshing and cathartic to have the anger, disappointment and hopelessness so many of us are feeling over the direction our country has taken with Obama's leadership addressed.  I must say when the attendees started chanting "lock her up" after Chris Christie enumerated the many instances of Hillary's crimes I began to think that might actually happen.  I am ready to return to a country where the laws are upheld and there are no exceptions for political party, color of skin, or political correctness.

It actually seemed this week that common sense had returned.  I pray that is so.
