A Tale of Two Conventions
Could they have been any more different?

One - dark, divisive, and anti-American; the other - uplifting, egalitarian, and patriotic. And most importantly, one still believing in and working for the beacon of hope that has for so long been, the American Dream.
If you haven’t simply tuned out the recent bids from the two diametrically opposed parties vying for the future of the last and best hope for freedom in the world, then you couldn’t have helped but notice the jagged and most likely irreconcilable gulf between the two parties locked in a death struggle for the soul of America. And depending which one prevails in a few short weeks we will see the last best hope for mankind and freedom continue and prevail or be ground under the heel of anarchy and tyranny and disappear forever.
Make no mistake about it - if the Democrats and their anti-American agenda manage to lie, cheat, and intimidate their way to power, the once-great American experiment of freedom and equality will descend into darkness and disappear forever.
Too strong you say? Really?
Well, then I suggest you check in with those victims of the DNC mob who have been beaten, robbed, raped, and intimidated by the armed terrorist wing of the Democrat party.
All you have to do is to turn on the news any night to see the Democrat mob burning down every city and town where the Democrats hold sway, destroying the lives, property and businesses of everyone unfortunate enough to live in a place controlled by the Democrat party.
And why can the violent mobs do that where Democrats have control? Because the Democrats let them.
Not only let them - but gleefully and maliciously encourage them.
Their entire bid for the ultimate power they plan to steal in this election is based around the same technique that the Nazis, Bolsheviks, and Communists have always used.
In their warped and twisted lust for total power they have cynically determined that if they frighten, brutalize, and cow America into submission, they can burn, beat, and murder our citizens until decent Americans are too fearful to stand up to the Democrat mob.
That’s why it is no accident that the DNC-controlled storm troopers have taken to ravaging neighborhoods, restaurants, and bullying, screaming-down, and threatening peaceful diners to kneel before their alter of anarchy or be beaten up.
"BLM mob forces DC restaurant patrons to raise fists in ‘black power’ salute.
"In an outdoor venue, BLM protestors surrounded a masked woman who appeared to be enjoying a peaceful meal alone.
One man crouched down to eye-level, shaking his head as he stated something in her face. As they leaned in, the sheer numbers forced her to recline in her seat, shrinking away from the pouncing mob. Her diplomatic voice was drowned out by chants of "No Justice! No Peace!”
These innocent civilians were merely paying customers, venturing outside their homes to break bread with their loved ones or in solitude - without having to display their solidarity. That's when the BLM mob attacked their existence in their daily lives for not being actively "anti-racist." (1)
And to anyone who thought that the Constitution or police would protect them against those latter-day Nazi’s has only to look at what is happening right now in places like Portland and Kenosha.
"Store owner sobs after business of 40 years is burned down during Kenosha riots”
“It’s all gone…we didn’t do nothing to nobody,” Linda Carpenter said while comforted by her son, Scott, as they surveyed their completely destroyed B & L Office Furniture, which had been in business for 40 years and was “still burning,” she said. (2)
These victims of the DNC would not say that there is nothing to fear from a Democrat take-over.
They have suffered under Democrat rule first-hand and make no mistake about it - that is exactly what the Democrat Marxists have in store for every American who does not bend a knee to their tyranny.
And now they are not content to burn your home and business, or beat and humiliate you and your loved ones. No - they insist on stripping you of every vestige of dignity and freedom that generations of Americans have fought and died to secure for us.
The DNC will settle for nothing less than groveling before the mob.
And if you balk at the fact that they will brutalize and intimidate you anywhere and everywhere you go they merely sneer as they bully and tyrannize you.
Does this sound like America or Nazi Germany?
Does this sound like a place where you would like to live or have your children and grandchildren grow up?
But worst of all, it will then also be the end of our precious liberty, democracy, and every right, freedom, and dignity that America has stood, fought, and died for, for the past 244 years.
So vote like your life and that of your children and grandchildren depend on it.
