Thankfully, the republican convention finally came to a close last night. Many of the speeches given there sounded a lot like a speech you would here at the democrat convention. You could barely tell the difference between the two. At this week’s republican convention the only person talking about conservative principles was Ted Cruz. His speech highlighted the once held importance of conservative principles such as freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. For his effort he got booed off the stage.
There was much to do about Melania Trump’s speech. She was caught plaguerizing a 2008 speech given by the democrat wife of Barack Obama. Melania’s speech highlighted democrat talking points that portrayed women as victims. Again, these are issues that democrats use at their convention to portray women as victims. Last night, Ivanka Trump used her speech to portray women as victims much like what you would hear at a democrat convention. In fact, her speech used the same talking points Hillary Clinton uses in her stump speech on the campaign trail. Does this woman sound like a republican to you?
In this day and age you can’t tell the difference between the two political parties anymore. That’s because there are practically no recognizable differences between the two parties. The two political parties have dangerously become the same big government, collectivist entities that want to grow government larger and larger. Donald Trump’s main theme in his speech was that he alone will make government “smarter.” That happens to be eerily similar to another theme (smart power) that Hillary Clinton has used in the past to describe her perceived brilliance when dealing with her foreign policy decisions.
So what is the difference between the two parties? Why all the fighting and bickering between the two when they are basically promoting the same thing? Why waste time, energy and money on two conventions that basically have the same message? It is actually quite sad to learn that in today’s political world there are no significant differences between the two parties. They don’t stand for the principles and beliefs that founded our once great country. They no longer stand for freedom, liberty and constitutionality anymore. We always knew the democrat party moored away from those values years ago. Sadly, this week we found out that the Republican Party has done the same thing. We found out this week if someone did stand for up those values, you would get booed off the stage.
