Republican National Convention — Day Four
Woah! Donald Trump actually gave a lucid speech -- riddled with other problems, but surprisingly clear and politically savvy. He emphasized that "there can be no prosperity without law and order." Then again, he probably overdid it.
"An attack on law enforcement is an attack on all Americans."
"I will restore law and order to our country, believe me."
"In this race for the White House, I am the law and order candidate."
Trump also mentioned Bernie Sanders, predicting that the insurgent Democrat's voters will rally behind him against Hillary.
Finally, he hit on the very problem that led -- and still leads many -- #NeverTrump conservatives to harshly oppose him: "Nobody knows the system better than me," he declared. "Which is why I alone can fix it. I have seen firsthand how the system is rigged against our citizens, just as it was rigged by Bernie Sanders -- he never had a chance."
I'm not sure Sanders never had a chance, and the system is easier to rig the larger the government is. Trump says he will cut down the size and scope of government -- let's see if he really believes it.
