I did not watch Republican VP nominee Paul Ryan’s speech last night, but I was amazed by the quick, and widespread, condemnation of the speech. While almost all found it spell-binding and captivating, it didn’t take long for many to find errors in Ryan’s speech. Even Fox News published a piece last night saying that the speech could be described as “dazzling, deceiving, and distracting“. The piece suggested that what he said, much of it false, was in some ways a distraction from what he didn’t say. I find this extremely disappointing. It adds to my reluctance to vote in this election since I find neither party willing to tell the truth and work together to work for others. It is a good thing my Hope is not placed in any earthly kingdom.
