9 Reasons Trump's Acceptance Speech Swayed Me To His Side

For this entire election, I have been watching very closely at the debates and speeches of all the candidates. Between Hillary and Trump, I could not stand behind either. After watching Trump's acceptance speech for the Republican nomination, my mind has been changed. Here are nine reasons Trump swayed me to his side during and after the acceptance speech.

1. He Toned It Down

I was never a fan of the red-faced, mud-slinging behaviors Trump showcased in his previous debates. Calling out other candidates for things that the public needs to know is acceptable and expected. But bullying and degrading other candidates for unrelated things is disgusting. He didn't make fun of the way Hillary looks or the way she talks. He was talking about actions and policies. Not trivial things.

2. He Showed He Cared

He talked about groups of people and communities that are in desperate need for help. (For example: Ferguson.) He reached out to communities of people in a new way. In the past, he talked about the horrid examples and used them as a figure for the community--he assumed the worst. But in this speech, he showed he cared.

3. He Showed His Kids Are Wonderful

Donald Jr. and Ivanka stole the convention. They proved that their father knows how to raise his kids. They presented proof of his leadership.

4. He Didn't Act Like A Child

He didn't bite when the crowd started chanting "lock her up," and he stayed on track.

5. The Media Was Grasping At Straws

After his speech, the media was doing anything they could to make it sound horrible. When I watched it, I was shocked and impressed. Then, they started trying to make it look ugly. CNN then released a poll of what the viewers thought. He swayed almost 80 percent of watchers to his side according to their poll. Immediately after showing this poll, CNN tried to discredit their own poll! Then stopped talking about it. The headlines after the night were strictly negative. It doesn't make any sense!

6. He Was Right About Democratic Corruption

He has been screaming about the corruption of the Democratic party and the schemes to end Bernie Sanders. With the latest leak of emails, it shows he was 100 percent correct. And the media is--you guessed it--silent.

7. A Reporter Seemed Persuaded

Before the convention speeches, it was obvious one CNN reporter's goal was to showcase division. She was talking about "Never Trump" stickers and trying to get conflicting views on the floor. After the speech, she was filled with energy and excitement and only said positive things (even when her co-workers were going against her).

8. America Seems Scared... He Is Not

From my family to talks I've had with people all over the country, people are scared. He knows this, and shows he is ready to fight.

9. Showed Love For People

I was not a Trump supporter... at all. My vote, as a Christian, was for the candidate that shows love for others. God doesn't let us pick whom to love and whom not to love. Trump finally showed love.

This was only a speech, but he showed me a light at the end of the tunnel. Again, this is just a speech, and one convention isn't the cornerstone of my vote. I will be watching the Democratic convention and all the debates to come.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
