Opening Day of the Republican National Convention  with Trump at the helm the Obama message for today is clear: MAKE AMERICA SAFE!!!! From babies in the womb and the elderly to the American servicemen  and police.

Coauthors of the book Lone Survivors who were involved in the Benghazi extraction team gave a blow by blow recounting of the events.   Moms and family members of those lost gave compelling support to Donald Trump.  Tears were definitely flowing, and the crowd  was repeatedly cheering USA USA USA!!!

Tuesday was great! I went to a 3 person panel discussion  titled What Women Want.  In a small intimate back room of a restaurant I heard from Candy Carson, Alex Swoyer of Breitbart , and Penny Nance President of CWA.

Then on to the National Federation of Republican Women board meeting and mixer.  
It was good to hear about the growth of the organization in so many other states. And of course see pictures of Rosie the bus traveling to all the many cities across the mainland gathering groups and encouraging them to be active and vote!

At the Convention, Tuesday ‘s theme was : MAKE AMERICA WORK AGAIN 
After the votes from the states were given, we heard from lots of business owners and politicians promoting business growth  and  the lifting of restrictions put on by Obama overreach. Take America Back was repeated several times.

Trump’s daughter( who has just graduated college) told of how encouraging her father has been throughout her life His son( who has 5 children of his own) spoke praising his dad as a father and business partner.  Both seemed  like very real regular people and were well received.
