A Hippie’s Thoughts On Trump’s RNC Speech

“The crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon come to an end. Beginning on January 20th 2017, safety will be restored.”
-Hitler said similar things

“The most basic duty of government is to defend the lives of its own citizens. Any government that fails to do so is a government unworthy to lead.”
-So will he agree to resign when he can’t lower the murder rate?

“Again, I will tell you the plain facts that have been edited out of your nightly news and your morning newspaper:”
-Trump banned the Washington Post from following his campaign

“This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton: death, destruction and weakness.”
-This is the mission statement of the Clinton Foundation: “We convene businesses, governments, NGOs, and individuals to improve global health and wellness, increase opportunity for girls and women, reduce childhood obesity, create economic opportunity and growth, and help communities address the effects of climate change.”

“The American People will come first once again. My plan will begin with safety at home – which means safe neighborhoods, secure borders, and protection from terrorism.”
-How? You can’t hire tons more cops and say you are the President of Law and Order. This will not stop the violence in our neighborhoods.

“That is why Hillary Clinton’s message is that things will never change.”
-Straw Man Fallacy

“I AM YOUR VOICE.”
-He isn’t the voice of the reporters at the Washington post. He isn’t he voice of democrats. Unwise, untrue thing to say.

“When I take the oath of office next year, I will restore law and order our country.”
-As in? the 1940’s? 50’s? Since Reagan? Restored to when.
