Post Mortem: RNC 2016 and DNC 2016

Written by

Did you watch the RNC 2016 as well as the DNC 2016? I watched both of them!

Generally speaking, both were well done. Here are my two specific thoughts:

  1. Trump might have made a major mistake by saying "I alone can fix it!'
  2. The DNC 2016 was pure baloney!

Let me elaborate on each ...

1. Trump might have made a major mistake!

Trump's mouth has, so far, been a 2-way street, winning some while losing others.

However, he might have gone too far this time by saying, in his acceptance speech, "I alone can fix it (America)".

I was shocked to hear that!

Not surprisingly, it has been exploited by the Democrats since then and will continue to be exploited as an attacking tool against Trump throughout the remainder of the 2016 campaign. In a close election like this, it could be the difference.

Hopefully I am wrong on this, as I was wrong on Trump several times before.

Overall, Trump will hopefully polish up his end game sooner and faster, without making big mistakes via his mouth! The race will be tight, with little margin for big errors from now on!

2. The DNC 2016 was pure baloney!

In an advanced democracy like ours, the Democrats will win all elections over time by attrition!

Therefore, there is really no need for the Democrats to have any ideas or strategies, other than to just keep offering more and more hand-outs, from food stamps to college tuition!

So the DNC 2016 was pure pandering to the government dependents who want evermore, just like all the previous DNC conventions since 1960 at least! For more, read: New Slavery in America: Pay without Work!

Now, let's take a look at a quote from Michelle Obama's speech: "I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves."

What an unsubtle exaggeration!

Some white men designed the White House, while some slaves laid the bricks! Two analogies:

  1. It was China’s First Emperor (Qin Shi Huang) that built the Great Wall! Hundreds of thousands of slaves merely participated in the building process by laying the bricks!
  2. It is Trump that owns the Trump Tower and it is Trump that has built the Trump Empire! His employees merely participated in the building process!

3. Discussion

As a country, we have completely lost our sense: the Democrats need not think, while the Republicans cannot think! Four informative readings:

  1. The America That Can No Longer Think, Politically.
  2. The America That Can No Longer Think, Diplomatically.
  3. The America That Can No Longer Think, Militarily.
  4. The America That Can No Longer Think, Economically.

Fortunately, Trump is not even a Republican per se. Instead, he is a de facto Libertarian (just like me)! For more, read: Who is Donald Trump, Anyway?

Better yet, I believe I have the most accurate diagnosis for America (Diagnosis for America (Version 3)), as well as the best solution (Solution for America (Version 3)).

So here is the only way to truly make America great again:

  1. Elect Trump as the next American President.
  2. President Trump reforms our political system, as I have suggested (Donald Trump vs. Deng Xiaoping)!

Anything short of that would be too little, too late. In other words, America would become an also-ran, second to China! Four informative readings:

  1. Towards an Ideal Form of Government.
  2. "Communist China", Really?
  3. Chinese Presidency: An Earned Kingship for 10 Years.
  4. The Legitimacy of the Chinese Government.

4. Closing

Give Trump a chance to "Make America Great Again"!
