The Republican Party of the USA, "seeking to capture the quintessential swing state of Ohio in the next presidential election," has chosen Cleveland as the lucky host of the 2016 Republican National Convention.

In 2012, the Republicans held their convention in Tampa. Florida went for Obama.

Also that year, the Democrats held their convention in Charlotte. North Carolina went for Romney.

No matter where they are held, American political conventions are staggeringly wasteful monuments to the insincerity and moral corruption of our nation's political class and their fawning media enablers.
