Dem Platform: God and Jerusalem Out: Gay Marriage and Tax Funded
A Column by the Editor
web posted September 6, 2012
COLUMN – I know Democrats must be thrilled
this year. After the Party platform was approved on Tuesday by a vote
of the delegates it threw God and Jerusalem out and beefed up its
support for gay marriage and on-demand abortions funded by taxpayer
dollars. Republicans were quick to pounce on the move and began putting
the Democrats and Obama on the defensive. So much so that the party
shoved the two back into the platform on Wednesday to the boos, hisses, and jeers of
about half of those delegates in attendance.
A video of the party of "inclusion and tolerance" thrice
can be seen here.
Of course, even before Obama was elected President, he had already
proclaimed that America
was no longer a Christian nation in 2007, and he has been quoted
repeatedly in speeches where he purposefully leaves out "endowed by
their Creator" with rights when quoting the preamble of the Declaration
of Independence. That's' no accident.
Obama has bowed to muslim leaders and spent the first year of his term
on an apology tour to their nations about how America has been the
problem, not the solution in the world.
He has openly supported gay marriage and voted as a Senator to allow
doctors to kill babies born after a botched abortion, otherwise known
You Democrats must be so proud of "your guy".
Oh, and Democrats have more
the number of muslim delegates at the DNC Convention
this year alone. Isn't that interesting?
So, even though they have returned God and Jerusalem to the platform it
is not a sincere addition, it was a reluctant one because it is an
election year and Obama had to cover his political rear end. You can't
tell me that Obama, the leader of the Democrat Party, was not actively
involved in the wording of the platform before it was adopted. My guess
is he wrote it to reflect his views alone. Politico
reports Obama aproved the wording until Republicans made it an
issue, then backtracked and said he was unware and was opposed to the
changes. Down here we call that a lie.
I guess he didn't think FOX News would read the platform.
So, let's recap, to be a Democrat you support gays being able to marry,
which God says is an "abomination", even in an "Obama-nation". Killing
unborn babies is cool, though most are blacks, and it's okay to let the
ones who survive an abortion to be killed anyway if Obama had his way.
What a caring guy!
You support amnesty for illegals since Obama has ordered the stop of
deportations with a stroke of a pen, not the passage of laws by
Congress, who happens to be the only ones able to define what the laws
You support Obama refusing to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act,
something he is sworn to uphold and enforce as President, just because
he's bigger than government, he's our ruler.
Who needs Congress or laws anyway? And the Constitutionally required
budget that has to be passed every year. Budget, "We don't need no
stinking budget," according to Obama and the Democrats. Three years and
no budget allowed by the Democrat controlled Senate even though the
House has passed one every year. (But the Republicans are the
"obstructionists" in Congress)
You support Obama's grand promise to "cut the deficit in half" while he
was increasing it by $6 Trillion - an all time high.
You support higher
the middle class, i.e. ObamaCare
You support weakening our military and making us more dependent on oil
from … yes, muslim states. Canadian pipeline, No! Drilling in the Gulf,
No! Giving billions to other countries to drill in the gulf so we can
buy the oil from them? Yes! Nice huh?
You support crushing regulations that have led to the worst economy
since the Great Depression by putting a jackboot on the throats of
small businesses keeping them from expanding and creating jobs.
In short, you support diminishing the stature of America as a whole and
relegating us as "just another nation at the table of nations."
It must be a great year to be a Democrat. I don't envy any of you.
