Republican Convention Day Three Thread

Instead of doing Questions of the Day during the conventions, I'm going to be posting Convention Threads, since the big speeches happen in the evenings, and I thought we might all want a place to discuss.

Tonight's theme is: "Make America First Again."
America has always been an exceptional nation. Our Founding Fathers created a system of government that has protected our liberty, allowed American ingenuity to flourish, and lifted people out of poverty by creating the conditions for opportunity and prosperity. Unfortunately, years of bad policies and poor leadership have weakened our position in the world. Under a Trump administration, America will once again be a beacon of progress and opportunity.
Likely story.

Tonight's slate of speakers includes such luminaries as Phil Ruffin, Businessman (What—you haven't heard of Phil Ruffin? Well, he's only the owner of 65 convenience stores and 12 hotels, you fool!); Pam Bondi, Attorney General of Florida (who recently had her ass handed to her by Anderson Cooper); Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker; Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz; Newt Gingrich; and vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence!

Can't wait!

At least there are some actual elected Republicans whose names people might recognize speaking tonight. Quite a coup for a Republican convention!
