Some Thoughts on Philadelphia

Watching last night's speeches at the Democrat convention in Philadelphia, I was struck by some thoughts.

Isn't it odd that on the one hand, the speakers talked about all the great changes and accomplishments of Barack Obama and his administration while on the other hand complaining angrily about all the injustices and inequities in America? Why the angry tone after 7 1/2 years of Obama?

How can one speaker after another trash the character, integrity and honesty of Donald Trump when they are putting forth a candidate who has absolutely none of the above?

How can Bernie Sanders stand up there after being proved correct when he said the system was rigged and tell his delegates they must vote for Hillary Clinton? Has he no pride? He was supposed to be the man of character.  He has let down his supporters. Along that vein, Ted Cruz bitterly let down his supporters by failing to endorse Trump, who won the nomination fair and square while Sanders lets down his by endorsing the one who didn't win it fair and square.

And what is the Palestinian flag doing in the convention hall? I don't see any American flags in this picture.

This party does not deserve my support.

Because, Donald Trump is Hillary Clinton on steroids. What a back-handed reason to vote... because he offers more of what's wrong with her.
