I was impressed. Loved every single speaker and felt that MOST of them, hit it out of the park! I watched it on C-Span, because I was getting so tired of the hosts and the pundits talking over the speakers, no matter which channel I tried.
I am actually looking forward to what comes next.
Loving it so far!
I was impressed with each speaker, in my view, it was wonderful to see citizens step up and share how this administration helped them. It was interesting to hear their personal opinions of the President. I was appreciative that many of Trump's accomplishments were not only pointed out but how his deeds help everyday citizens. I have always noted Trump to be open to making changes that go to the root of some of our big social problems. I think school of choice and opportunity zones have a real chance of working to give better education to all, and a real boost in business opportunities to many that would have no chance of ever realizing owning their own business.
I have been trying to wake people up to the fact deeds just mean more than words. Words are easy, deeds take work.
I am also looking forward to tonight. Such a difference from the DNC production, which did nothing but point out how bad the country has become. And the RNC which really showed how the country has progressed to a country where problems are being worked on and solved, and how this non-politician president, although a bull in a china shop has worked to make things better for all American's.
I guess you know who I am voting for... LOL
Night Two did not disappoint. I think it was as good as night one.
I was looking forward to hearing from Nicholas Sandmann, although still very young, he did a great job.
Daniel Cameron, Kentucky’s AG, superstar, love him!
Citizens from all walks of life, with their stories to tell, is such a nice touch.
Melania looked beautiful and did an exceptional job, imho.
Two people told me that they had never heard her speak or had never really seen or heard very much about her.
It is true!
She is no Michelle Obama!...she doesn’t get anywhere near the exposure Mrs. O and all other First Ladies received, it is wrong and it truly bugs me. It is a pet peeve of mine, you could say.
I am enjoying and looking forward to the rest...and that’s a first for me! So well done.
Whose ever earger to bet with me Trump going to win a second teneur?
I certainly hope so Miebakagh! I don't want to even think about the alternative.
Hear, hear Sharlee. It wasn't only refreshing, it was entertaining and, more importantly, impactful!
Maximo's heartfelt message left me teary-eyed, but so very proud that I get to call myself an American! It was a plea to those who take so much for granted and I pray that he got through!
Herschel Walker was on his game. Nikki Haley impressed. Gosh I could go on and on.
The personal stories of everyday people was the icing on the cake.
I am fired up!
It makes you wonder how the democrats can get behind the deep-state left politicians who have ALL overtaken the party.
I feel pity and empathy for today's dems. Maybe they should sit this one out.
Kathryn, I thought that's what they were doing with the selection of Biden/Harris.
I think you are right some Dems will sit this one out. I canvas for the Rep party, in my neighborhood that is. I was surprised a few Dem's I could not convince last time around to vote for Trump, have now come over and assured me I could check the Trump box on my canvas. And I only bring this up because of your sentiment, wondering how Dems can get behind the deep state left agenda. It would appear some have become very scared of what the Dem's are offering for America, and are just fine at keeping our democracy intact. It will be very interesting to see the outcome of this election.
Oh hell, night 3 and I just saw the most impressive speech yet.
It was from a guy named Cawthorn, or more precisely, North Carolina GOP candidate Madison Cawthorn.
He was in a wheelchair. His speech was fantastic, but when a walker was brought out and he stood up, saying "I stand for America." I damn near teared up. (yes, I am a patriotic softie)
And for a bit of irony, he beat a Trump-supported candidate in the N.C. Republican primary.
With folks like him, (yes, I know the Democrats have similar young patriots), we aren't in nearly such bad shape as our political divide is telling us we are.
I have been impressed by the Republican convention so far. I wish I had seen as much of the Democrat convention so I could make a fair comparison.
That was powerful...gave me goosebumps!
Several great speakers again tonight.
....and then...Trace Adkins sang our National Anthem at Ft. McHenry, where over 200 years ago, the words were penned by Francis Scott Key, as he witnessed ,"the rockets red glare", "the bombs bursting in air", from a ship in the harbor!
If that didn't give folks goosebumps...nothing will!!!
Same here Sharlee, great word "riveting"...it was that and more.
I have an article ready to go on this subject matter, but I'm torn on whether to publish now or wait until after the RNC ends tonight.... I think I'll wait, no telling what I'll miss, that I may wish to include.
I thought V.P. Pence did a fantastic job, he kept my undivided attention...that's quite a feat.
VP Pence's speech was eyeopening, and I loved how President Trump and First Lady Melania totally came in at the end to support, and celebrate the Pence's big night.
I think tonight Trump will provide a real rock the world speech. I hope he shows us the side he showed the other night when Melania was speaking. One could visibly see his pride and love for his wife. He was tearing up, and his face softened. I don't think I have ever seen that side of him.
Let me share --- I am so proud of this president and proud of myself for taking a chance on him. Trump 2020

Well, yes. The answer is obvious.1) They oppose background checks and other gun laws so mentally unstable people can buy assault rifles and commit mass murders like in Orlando and Connecticut.2) They favor multi trillion dollar wars chasing weapons of mass destruction that don't exist instead of...

This is really two part question. The first part is the above question. The other is a slight twist, to wit: "Is President Trump Turning Out to an Existential Threat to Ideals Which America Represents?"The reason I ask is because consequences are becoming evident from his nine...

Donald Trump has been President for 14 days now. In that time he has issued around 14 executive orders, most of which impact the world.The American polls show over 50% of America think Trump is doing a poor jobs.What is your opinion?

I'm really curious to know how our TP defenders feel about this one. The Tea Party believes in American EXCEPTIONALISM. They have been all over Obama for suggesting that America is exceptional to us, just as other countries are exceptional to their citizens.Now here comes Donald Trump, aligning...
