Speeches from the GOP Convention
Here are speeches by:
There were more, but these were some of the best. New faces at the GOP these days.

Joe Arpio Charges Dropped
The Department of Justice has been on a vendetta against Sheriff Joe Arpio of Maricopa County, AZ. This week they declined to bring any financial mismanagement charges against the sheriff's department. Civil Rights violation charges are yet to be resolved. The only thing that will bring this to an end is a new administration in Washington.
