The Republican National Convention looked like a high school pep rally minus the cheerleaders! There were a lot of balloons and confetti like they won the Superbowl or the World Cup -OH YEAH - this was the Republican PARTY after all. It looks fun with many cosplayers in cowboy hats minus hopefully their guns (NRA RULES!!!). The average age must be 70 years old in that convention.
We have a lot to be thankful for to the REPUBLICAN PARTY. If it weren't for them, we wouldn't be an American colony (Sugar not oil was the reason right Teddy?). We wouldn't have enjoyed the Martial Law so much with 10,000 people damaged as a testament to it (with approval from Reagan the so-called champion of democracy). The Filipino war veterans who fought for America should have been paid their due right now but thanks to overenthusiastic Republican congressmen who blocked it with the excuse money should be better spent somewhere else and then gloriously pitting one group of veterans against another.
Thank you Republican Party!!!
Here is his choice for Vice-President Sarah Palin. She has a stellar resume!
— In her earlier career as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, Palin hired a lobbyist to help the tiny town secure at least 14 earmarks, worth $27 million between 2000-2003. McCain has touted Palin as a force in his long battle against earmarks.
— Under her leadership this year, Alaska asked for almost $300 per person in requests for pet projects from Stevens, one of McCain's top adversaries. That's more than any other state received, per person, from Congress.
— Her husband, Todd, twice registered as a member of the Alaskan Independence Party, a fierce states' rights group that wants to turn all federal lands in Alaska back to the state. Sarah Palin herself never registered as a member of the party, according to state officials, though party members said she attended a 1994 convention with her husband.
— The head of the firm hired to defend Gov. Palin in a state ethics investigation was previously her family's lawyer and is permitted to bill the state up to $95,000 for work in the current case. It involves the dismissal of public safety commissioner Walt Monegan after he refused to fire a state trooper who had divorced the governor's sister.
— Palin opposed the U.S. government's listing of a variety of animals as endangered, including the polar bear and the beluga whale, both of which inhabit areas also rich in oil and natural gas.
— Palin previously acknowledged she smoked marijuana but said in a 2006 interview she no longer used the drug. "I can't claim a Bill Clinton and say that I never inhaled," she said.
Good, she could relate with young voters in the USA.
— Palin sought pork-barrel projects for her city and state, contrary to her reformist image.
— Her husband once belonged to a fringe political group in Alaska with some members supporting succession from the United States.
— A private attorney is authorized to spend $95,000 to defend her against accusations of abuse of power.
— She has acknowledged smoking marijuana in the past.
— And this: Bristol Palin's boyfriend, Levi Johnston, plans to join the family of the Republican vice presidential candidate at the GOP convention, the boy's mother said. He left Alaska on Tuesday morning to join the Palin family in St. Paul, Minn.
Most importantly she's a former Miss Alaska runner up!!!
Some people say she's a typical Republican. I don't know about that!!!
