The United States is turning upside down.  While Republicans denounced the state of America at their national convention, Democrats embraced American exceptionalism, and the spirit of Teddy Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan.  While a Democratic presidential nominee recklessly played with the national security of the United States through her careless use of a personal email server, the Republican presidential nominee beseeched Russia to hack her accounts some more.

While the Republican nominee embraces Russia and its President, Vladimir Putin, and casts doubt on the U.S. commitment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), Democrats proffer stern warnings about the danger of the Russian federation, its cyber activities, and its aggression against NATO allies.

While a Republican calls for trade protectionism and universal health care….ok, so the Democratic nominee is calling for those too.  While a former U.S. Marine general touted the national security credentials of the Democratic presidential nominee, the spouse of the Republican nominee plagiarized the convention speech of the wife of the current Democratic president.

To top it all off, a Muslim Gold Star mother and father, who lost their son fighting in a war for America, found it necessary to remind the Republican presidential nominee, who has never served the United States in any capacity a day in his life (nor have any of his children), that we Americans are governed by the U.S. Constitution, and he should read it.
