#Day1, the DNC in PHILLY: “WHEN THEY GO LOW, WE GO HIGH”





FLOTUS Michelle Obama at the Convention
This wallpaper and I almost fought a duel to point of death; [to take over on my phone and laptop screen saver space], but I had to give up very easily because these beautiful words come from one of the most inspirational people in my life. President Obama you are a very blessed man, no wonder you immediately proudly tweeted: “incredible speech by an incredible woman.Couldn't be more proud and our country has been blessed to have her as FLOTUS.I love you, Michelle”. Michelle Obama stole the show, rather perfectly it turns out—and then there was Sen.Booker,they certainly had to be prime speakers, leave alone for Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders who never minces words when it comes to putting Donald Trump in his place.

I have waited for this day, almost very impatiently, until it dawned—it was a very rewarding night for me here in Uganda after the continuous and disastrous bigotry from the Trump camp. I must say with pride that if there is anything that reveals the greatness of America, it is the eloquence in the words of the speakers on the very first day: we are stronger together, Hillary Clinton must be the next President, and we will do everything we can. I must say that everyone who took that platform was crystal clear painting the picture very vividly on the lame rhetoric offered by the bigoted Donald Trump that America isn’t great—and he alone can make it great again, building stupid walls(as Sen. Warren noted) and insulting every living thing that disagrees with his divisive and crass hateful remarks.

Sen Cory Booker speaking at the Convention
In the recent article where I talked about the veep pick, I profoundly cited the veep-pick very rich list of highly quailed candidates the Clinton Campaign. I must say that Sen. Cory Booker is proof positive that indeed the team is just magnificent. He was clear with the words, ‘we can’t be seduced by cynicism’, over to you Donald Trump—that’s your word salad and you have no escape route, and you have earned it. It is not even just scary anymore that the very existential threat to the greatness of America (who ignorantly claims it is not great) continues to lose some American illiterate voters—that’s terribly worrisome, and this is because with the kind of the growing bigotry groupie, even when Hilary wins in November (which she will), they will still be a threat to the Peace: President Obama the other day soundly put it accurately, I will leave it here.

Sen Bernie Sanders speaking at the Convention
A lot has been said about Mrs. Clinton being the most qualified, to most intelligent and certainly the president that will keep the Obama Legacy intact—whiles progressively improving on the areas that are still lacking. I find everything that absolutely true. She is a class act and we know this so well from the very facts that she has been witch-hunted almost her entire political life but she is always a winner through and through. Just a few days ago, the bromance between Putin and Donald Trump led to the wikileaks, a Moscow-led campaign to negatively affect the November election [for Hillary Clinton, in favor of the Donald], the single most reason is because Vladimir Putin fears Hillary Clinton and would rather work with the crass Donald Trump—the menacing reality is that it wouldn’t take Donald Trump to insult this war monger: this jeopardizes not only the peace of America but rather the whole world.

The phenomenal Hillary Clinton and many other people—particularly, Sen. Warren[the twitter queen, onhitting Donald Trump where it hurts] have advised Donald Trump to try listening not only to himself but other people; as a means for him to learn new things but he remains adamant and very loyal to ignorance—calling very powerful and respectable women ‘crooked and goofy’. I am also going to propose something that might help him in equal measure, that’s if he listens anyways.Sharon Salzbergwrites very powerful words in her book, the Kindness rebellion: “culture may tell us to scorn the co-worker we think receives validation from our boss than we do. But what would happen if we examined our scorn instead in order to learn about our relationship to our co-worker?”—that’s a thing republicans have failed to do for so many years, Hillary Clinton has worked so hard and she will do the job.

I want to be very clear, I want to be more eloquent, I want to shut Donald Trump’s stupid rhetoric ‘Make America Great Again’ down once and for all. I want to do this by borrowing the words of the talented human rights activist, Suzzy Kassem: ‘A NATION’S GREATNESS DEPENDS ON IT’S LEADER
“To vastly improve your country and make it great again, start by choosing a better leader. Do not let the media or establishment make you people from the people they choose, but instead choose from those they do not choose, one who identifies with the common man on the street and understands what the country needs on every level. Do not pick a leader who is only money- driven and doesn’t understand or identify with the common, but only what corporations on every level.

Pick a peacemaker. One, who unites, notdivides. A cultured l leader who supports the arts and true freedom of speech, not censorhip.Pick a leader who will not only bail out banks and airlines, but also families from losing their homes—or jobs due to their companies moving to other countries. Pick a leader who will fund schools, not limiting spending on education and allow libraries to close. Pick a leader who chooses diplomacy over war. An honest broker in in foreign relations. A leader with integrity, but not sly. A leader who encourages diversity, notracism, One who understands the needs the needs of the farmer, theteacher, the doctor and the environmentalist—not only the insurance or pharmaceutical lobbyist.

Pick a leader who will keep jobs in your country by offering companies incentives to hire only within your borders, not one who allows corporations to outsource jobs for cheaper labor when there is national employment crisis. Choose a leader who will invest in building bridges, notwalls. Morality, notcorruption. Intellectualism and wisdom, not ignorance.Loe,not hate.Convergence,not segregation.Tolerance,not discrimination.Fairness,not hhypocrisy.Substance,not superficiality.Character,not immatutity,Transparency ,not secrecy.Justice,not lawlessness. Environmental improvement and preservation, notdestruction. Truth not lies.

Most importantly, a great leader must serve the best interests of the people first, not those of multinational corporations. Human life should never be sacrificed for monetary profit. There are exceptions. Inaddition, a leader should always be open to criticism, not silencing dissent. Any leader who doesn’t tolerate criticism is afraid of their dirty hands being revealed under the heavy light. And such a leader is dangerous, because they only feel secure in the darkness. Only a leader who is free from corruption welcomes scrutiny; for scrutiny allows a good leader to be even a greater leader.
And lastly, pick a leader who will make their citizens proud. One who will stir the hearts of the people, so that that the sons and daughters of a given country can strive emulate their leader’s greatness. Only then will a nation be truly great, when a leader inspires and produces citizens worthy of becoming future leaders, honorable decision makers and peace makers. And in these times, a great leader must be extremely brave. Their leadership must be steered only by their choice, not a bribe”—an excerpt from Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The writings of Suzzy Kassem.

Mrs.Clinton & her running mate,Sen.Tim Kaine
Definitely,that’s not the leaders Donald Trump is and that’s why #TeamHillaryUganda [Grace Abaho Sr,Peri Harris & Owen Erima] continue to present to you a leader(s) who will not play the sly make America Great Again dictum but will rather do all it takes to keep her great—giving a decent minimum wage to every working American, access to an affordable healthcare care, an affordable education to all college students not just for the privileged few but for everyone and among very many other things; a visionary and inclusive Democratic progressive platform—this will be through the very well qualified duo,Clinton-Kaine.Go to the voting booth in November and cast your vote for the only team that sincerely cares about the American people.
