Dang it! I was so busy today, I didn’t have time to write about their rejection of God and the thought that they could mandate to the Israelis where they call their capital. But, that’s not all…….
The Democratic Party has restored references in its official platform to “God” and to Jerusalem as the recognized capital of Israel.
The move comes after some had complained that the platform approved Tuesday omitted those references, which were included in the 2008 platform.
Many in the audience booed after the convention chairman, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, ruled that the amendments had been approved despite the fact that a large group of delegates objected.
He called for a vote three times before ruling.
The party reinstated language from the 2008 platform that said “we need a government that stands up for the hopes, values and interests of working people and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.”
The platform also now includes what advisers said was Obama’s personal views on Jerusalem.
I do love the weaselness of the Jerusalem part. It contains what people say what Obama said…… or something. Either you support Israel to call Jerusalem their capital, or you don’t. It is really that simple.
Unchanged, apparently, is the advocating free abortions, apparently regardless of circumstances or how late in term the child and mother would be.
I’m wondering how that squares with keeping healthcare costs down? What’s the cost of an abortion to a condom? And why in world does anyone think I or anyone else should be held responsible for someone’s poor judgment and promiscuity? Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for free love and whatnot, but if I’m not participating, I’m not paying. If you want to get it on with someone, have the damned decency to take responsibility for your own actions and quit trying to make people who are more prudent pay for your obviously uncontrollable animal urges. Dems, ruled by stupidity.
Update! You can see a video and hear the outrage of the Dems by putting God back in the platform. Go here…… http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/05/dnc-god-jerusalem-platform_n_1859200.html?utm_hp_ref=politics
Everyone should watch and listen to this. Are these people representative of most Americans? Clearly, there wasn’t 2/3’s of the people in agreement with the motion to put God back into the platform. They did it, anyway. Why? Because they are ashamed to tell the American people exactly what they are and what they’re for. If I thought the way they did, I would be, too.
It think it’s funny. Democrats can’t even be democratic because they are ashamed of what they stand for.
