The Most Important Event At Either Convention

The most important event at either convention? There weren't any. Both parties support the gigantic central government, the Fed that makes it all seem possible, TARP, bailouts, bankrupting foreign wars--you name it. The differences are cosmetic in nature. Romney and Ryan try to SOUND LIKE they support the free market. They don't. Obama says he supports the free market, under the heavy thumb of the Washington establishment. Either way, we don't get free markets.

So you are saying that the god-hating, Jew-hating, democratic vote-hating party is on similar moral and political grounds as the other party?

I think you may want to rethink that.

Yes, they indeed ARE on similar moral and political grounds. To paraphrase scripture, judge the tree by the fruit it produces. The fruit of both major parties is gigantic, tyrannical central government. The fact that party A bellows its devotion to God a little more loudly than Party B, is meaningless; they BOTH produce the same results, essentially. Any differences between the two are just matters of window-dressing.

I understand where you are coming from. Every dollar the government spends makes us less free, and the Republican party, of late, has not grasped that concept well.

But what you saw at the Democratic Nation Convention was a beyond-the-pale overt attack on the basis of liberty and democracy, and it was widely supported by their rank-and-file members.

You sound like your mind is made up on the matter, so I won't bug you any more about it, but I disagree that there is a moral equivalence between the two parties. However, I agree with you that the Republicans had better stand for small, Constitutional government, and soon, or our nation is history.

You're one of the few people at Townhall that actually gets it. All this is nothing more than fluff--or Kabuki Theatre--as it is now called. Conservatives should be ashamed of themselves since Romney is already stepping back from his comments concerning Obamacare. The real losers in this election are conservatives. What is appalling is that Townhall won't even allow the discussion to occur. There is not one Townhall blogger that is talking about the establishment repub con that is ensuing. The establishment repubs have foisted a liberal as the front man for the conservative movement.

Hi Faultroy,

I think there are many, many COMMENTERS who "get it" just as well as I regarding the Republican Party con game. I don't read the blogs, but I assume you're correct about TH-endorsed blogs. This is neither new, nor surprising.

Based on the number of posters who show up every day to condemn BOTH major parties, I think there's reason to hope.

Unfortunately, it's already way past midnight (metaphorically speaking). We're all going to feel a lot more pain before this mess gets turned around.

The most important event at either national convention was the "vote" taken by the Democratic delegates on a last-minute resolution to reinsert the words "God" and "Jerusalem" into the Democratic Party platform.

Regarding God, since Karl Marx, the aim of the left, everywhere on Earth, has been a godless society. And the Democratic Party has evolved over the last half century from a liberal party into a leftist one -- so much so that it is now indistinguishable from any of the leftist parties in Western Europe.

Yes, Franklin D. Roosevelt was a left-wing president -- as concerned...
