Mr. Trump's speechwriter spoke soaringly, but quite deceptively, last night of "an unbroken chain of truth, liberty and justice."
He spoke of us standing "united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms," while utterly failing to do so.
He spoke of American greatness, American freedom, and American strength, with no regard for what it actually takes to establish and maintain those desirable national qualities.
He spoke of American pride.
But we should not be proud, not as long as every single day in this country thousands of innocents continue to be slaughtered by the abortionists and the druggists, with the help of their political and legal enablers.
Truly, in the midst of this great holocaust, we should be sitting in sackcloth and ashes crying out to God for mercy, not bragging.
This hateful evil of human abortion, this great injustice of bloody child sacrifice, was, of course, not even considered worthy of a mention, much less swift action.
The real state of the Union is that truth, liberty, and the broken chain of justice -- along with the broken bodies of a great multitude of helpless, defenseless little boys and girls -- still lie forgotten in the dust by our elected representatives.
