    all I heard was FREE FREE FREE. Not even mentioning that the whole Democratic Party is running on how they are going to fix everything like they aren't the incumbent party with the President in office the last 7 1/2 years.

    Why on God's green Earth did you even bother to listen? I sure as hell didn't.

    Did they really prevent people from leaving while Hillary spoke?A delegate Sent a tweet saying they were notified to take a bathroom break since they would not be allowed to leave once Hillary started. What a fiasco the DNC is. Shutting off lights to states delegates,paying people so the empty seats are not obvious and now locking people in

    Why did Dems boo a Medal of Honor recipient?

    Nothing creates Trump support like listening to Hillary speak.

    This is the way liberals operate every day - force you to do what you will not do on your own because it's for the good of the cause.

    I admit I did not see it all (was watching ep.1 of Ripper Street). But here is what I noticed --

    While she mentioned crossover Reps alot, her policy proposals were aimed primarily at placating/holding Bernie voters, and were largely recycled Obama invective.

    Example - “In my first 100 days, we will work with both parties to pass the biggest investment in new, good-paying jobs since World War II." This is basically what Obama said to justify his first near $1T stimulus spending bill. Passed with 100% Dem support, he promised "infrastructure repair," but almost none of that was accomplished. Instead the great bulk went to pay off campaign debt and reward all those who put in the work to get him elected. It worked out as essentially a vote-buying scheme, unwittingly funded post facto by the taxpayer. One of the great politico-huckster schemes of all time.

    I did hear HRC promise “college tuition-free for the middle class and debt-free for all!” Obviously stolen from Sanders.

    I was told she briefly mentioned ISIS but I didnt hear it. It appears she offered nothing new, just a continuation of Obama's policy? The obvious problem being his ideas do not work.

    (edit - i had $1B originally, meant $1T)

    Apparently Hillary plagiarized also.
    Wonder if MSM will make a big deal out of it too.

    "It comes down to what Donald Trump doesn't get: America is great — because America is good," she said .
    De Toqueville, a 19th century French aristocrat who wrote "Democracy in America," is credited with the phrase, "America is great because she is good."

    DeToqueville also said this:

    "America will survive until the politicians find out they can bribe the people with their own money." I may not have the exact wording but it's pretty dang close.

    Hillary is still trying to put out the Bernie fire when she should be moving towards the center in anticipation of the general election. That is a real problem for her.

    I'm not sure there is a less charismatic major POTUS candidate than HRC. She'll need to rely heavily on surrogates to connect with the voters if she has any hope to win.

    This college plan is effin' irritating. It's a giant giveaway ($78B/year by one estimate) that we can ill afford that this time. Personally, I have 3 sons approaching college age thus this issue is close to my pocketbook. I consider myself "middle class" albeit I'm not near the 83% of American families that would supposedly qualify for free tuition. My wife (a teacher) and I are already staring at no need based financial aid assistance. This would most assuredly significantly raise the tuition for those that ARE paying tuition.

    I can support free community college education for those in need if it helps them get a start in college. At some point in time, a student should have to sacrifice to "earn" their education. Experiencing financial difficulty prepares the student for the real world giving them an appreciation for earning their own way. I'd say that to a student from a wealthy or poor background.

    SH, how come we are so close in life situation (I have 2 sons in HS and a teacher wife) and yet we are SOOOOOO far apart politically? Is it because I live in Texas and you do not? I too am scared we actually agree on 1 thing, but I'm not worried. I can count on you to still vote HRC and you can count on me to not.

    Yeah why not, this election's already a joke, no point in pulling in some blue humor too. It's not like we have any dignity to salvage...

    The feel the johnson thing is getting a little out of hand. A dude on his campaign's Facebook page posted, "#feelthejohnson, and let him blow his big load of liberty all over you." That's a little over the line.

    Wait...MSNBC is liberal??? Next you'll tell me that Fox News isn't "fair and balanced". The extreme left/right "news" sources can go away.

    I'm not going to lie, I'm more discouraged at the political process than ever before. The Dems have the worst candidate in history and she may end up being President. The Left media, (which is 90%) is going all out like never seen before. If the media were to only report the facts, Hillary wouldn't even sniff the White House outside of marrying into it. But the way the media is now, I'm not sure when a Republican will ever get elected again. Some here will say it's because of the candidate on the GOP side. Look at Hillary and try to compare her to anybody. All 17 candidates on the GOP side blows her away. She has no accomplishments and all she is good for is taking up space. It's just mind boggling that she is not in jail. But here she is running for the highest office in the world.

    Log on the internet (Yahoo) different negative stories as their headline about Trump and one glowing story about Hillary. It doesn't matter when you log in Yahoo is overwhelmingly bashing Trump. Turn the TV on and they are doing the same. Talk radio is the only thing that brings reality to the situation but more are listen to the FM stations for music. My cell phone under the news feed shows "First on CNN: Top Jeb Bush Advisor leaves GOP, will vote for Clinton if Florida is close." And here is another one. "McCain: Trump defamed Khan, does not represent GOP." They report everything they can find negative about Trump and blow it out of proportion while they ignore all the lies and corruptions of Hillary. It's just an all out assault on anybody that is republican. You think it would be different if it was Jeb, or Rubio, Carly, Cruz? No Hillary is protected by the media and the sad thing is, most of America doesn't even know how the media is in bed with the Democratic establishment. They take their reporting as facts. There is no consequences for the Democrats and that is a very scarey thing.

    No, but at least we wouldn't be giving them their dream GOP nominee and giving them as much ammo as we possibly could.
