Remaining in the political character he has had for at least five years, Donald Trump's acceptance speech to the Republican National Convention reiterated his determination to walk away from America's current policy of free trade.
A Hillary victory in November does not solve the problem, but only gives a four-year delay to the next time that America plays Russian Roulette while pointing the gun on its immigrants, Muslim citizens, and non-white communities.
Mr. President, I hope you are right . I will lean on your words and hope that the America you know will prevail in one of its biggest challenges to come in November.
The world outside the Quicken Loans Arena was a lot better than the world Donald Trump described inside of it, to the cackling glee of some of the Americans sitting around me, and also the thoughtfulness and discerning applause of others.
Unless you're old enough to join AARP, you probably don't know that the Cleveland Browns used to be a great football franchise, just as the GOP used to be a dominant political party.

Whatever else you might say about Donald Trump, in the primaries, he impressed upon Republican voters that he has the strength, decisiveness, and sheer moxie for leading the country. After this convention, however, one wonders what they will make of his aptitude for managing it.
Let me be clear, I'm no fan of Cruz. My political beliefs and values couldn't be further from his. Yet, I fully support his bold move on the convention stage. It takes guts to hold fast to your convictions in the face of intense opposition.
