So is America Really Crippled America?

Because that's the choice Donald Trump offers us. He insists we're crippled. Just like that book his ghostwriter wrote.

Like with everything Donald Trump or his campaign says, you have to check it for plagiarism. It'd be more surprising if there were none.

For starters 'Making America Great Again' is blatantly stolen from Ronald Reagan.

Truly, America has never seen a candidate like this. Who is running on such a dystopian, dark vision.

He's trying to run on Nixon's law and order but Nixon wasn't anywhere this dark.

So this is the Trump message: we're crippled and only he can save us.

Is this true America? Or is Hillary Clinton right?

"We are better than this."

I think we are too. But we are being tested like we never have been before America. Can't afford to mess this up.

Trump kept saying he will be our voice. Uh, no. You don't speak for me, Mr. Trump and you never will.

I think you've made the wrong bet. This is not who we are.

He wants to run as Richard Nixon. But Nixon didn't run on this dark a platform:

"Trump’s speech was advertised as an update of Richard Nixon’s 1968 “silent majority” address. It is nothing of the kind. This is a bulletin from a grimmer and more pessimistic society than that which would shortly afterward land a man on the moon."

"We extend the hand of friendship to all people, to the Russian people, to the Chinese people, to all people in the world. And we shall work toward the goal of an open world—open skies, open cities, open hearts, open minds."

"Thus 1968—but not 2016."

"Our goal is justice for every American. If we are to have respect for law in America, we must have laws that deserve respect. Just as we cannot have progress without order, we cannot have order without progress, and so, as we commit to order tonight, let us commit to progress."

"Thus 1968—but not 2016."

There are a lot of bad things you can say about Nixon but he wasn't Donald Trump.

David Frum-a long time Republican said Trump made a bad bet on anger:

"Donald Trump’s Bad Bet on Anger"

"In his speech to the Republican National Convention, the presidential nominee revealed a deeply flawed political strategy."

Eric Erickson:

"The Republican Party is officially now the party of Trump. Instead of happy warriors, they are angry, bitter bigots who hate Muslims, hispanics, and consider Democrats the enemy instead of political opponents. That anger is not going to attract anyone, so they will bully and browbeat. “Convert or Die” is now the GOP’s message. Their messiah is an orange Mohammed promising virgins and paradise if the party will only blow itself up."

Let's show Trump just what a bad bet he has made.
