DNC 2012 Platform: Unbelievable



The DNC Political Platform is full of misinformation and socialist key words.
The theme this time, after the 2008 “Hope and Change” didn’t work is: “Stronger Together” with an Obama symbol depicting unity, something that is also uncharacteristic of the actual policies of this unscrupulous political entity.

Here are some excerpts and my commentary, beginning with a line from the Preamble:

We, as Democrats, place the welfare of the people as our highest priority.

Indeed, to Democrats, keeping Americans beholding to government and on some form of “welfare” IS their priority.

We believe in the values of community, dignity, equality, opportunity, fairness, tolerance, respect, and the common good of the world we share.

Community = collectivism; equality, not in the sense of what the Founders intended; fairness, this is a favorite word of the sociocrats who do not understand its true meaning and cannot fathom that life itself is not always “fair”. Is it “fair” for one segment of the population to pay for the other portion through income distribution? Indeed, income tax itself is unfair, for no person, organization or government has the right to tell YOU what to do with your earned income or have the right to take it from your paycheck without your permission.

Our actions define our society.

Indeed, and along with government or if government is to reform – so must the American society.

It is the sovereign right of the people and necessary to their well-being for their chosen representatives to govern in a manner that will protect their health, safety, and welfare.

An attitude that welfare and taking from one group to give to another is, according to the democrat-socialist, is an entitlement. It has been difficult to reform because too many citizens actually believe it is their right to live at the expense of others. When 47% of Americans pay little or no income tax (after yearly deductions and form-filling), it is also why it has been difficult to get Americans to demand total tax system reform.
Is income redistribution “fairness”?
Democrat leadership has no clue about sovereignty, always putting it in jeopardy. Glorified wording, but does not apply to Democratic Party platform.
AGRICULTURE

Domestic production of food is critical to national security and essential to our future.

Property rights no longer mean anything to our government. Regulations and interventions has destroyed private property rights. The rights of a indiscriminate owl is more important than a property owner’s rights. Environmental safeguards are important, but as many things, the Democrats and their followers take the radical and often misleading approach to issues.The GOP hasn’t done much of anything about this problem, something the founding patriots knew must be upheld, because there are not enough constitutionalists in the Republican Party. It is evident that the political elite, the established hierarchy, is in control when they allow status quo to remain the norm in Washington, DC. The Democrats have been more aggressive in destroying the sanctity of the Constitution of the United States, yet in their platform they hail the cherished document and its amendments. It is why Americans need to start a self-study course: Constitution 101 and 201. Unless you choose to donate, it is free to promote more knowledgeable and responsible citizens. Something the sociocrats fear.

We recognize the role of farmers as stewards of the land

Yet, property rights do not apply. Government controls property, individuals, and too many facets of our lives.
The Democrats propose more legislation and restrictions upon private property rights and liberties of the People, as an example:

Reduction of the use of hazardous materials such as restricted-use pesticides;

CIVIL AND HUMAN RIGHTS

The inherent dignity and the equal and inalienable rights of all human beings are the foundations of freedom, justice and peace in the world.

Special interest and minority groups are provided rights at the expense of other citizens’ rights. For example, repealing the “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

We have the right to sovereignty over our own bodies

Unless you use tobacco products, specifically cigarettes; unless you drive an SUV; unless you do not eat the foods the government mandates, et cetera. You also have the obligation of paying for another citizen’s abortion from your taxes.

The right to unionize is a civil and human right.

However, you do not have the right to say “NO”, or work without joining a union, or say where your union dues go (political payments). Unions are big contributors to the Democratic Party, thus they are important in our working lives – and especially useful when unions control government jobs.

Honoring the rich diversity of society

Unless you are a white heterosexual male.

The end of human trafficking for the sex trade and all other forms of involuntary servitude

I have no idea where in America this is taking place, maybe it is part of their foreign aid program.

We oppose:
• Hiring out prisoners for private gain;
• Warrantless wiretapping and searches of American citizens;

Republicans support these oppositions as well, except when GW Bush was in office.
 CORPORATE POWER
Here is the cream of the crop when it comes to social and class warfare, punishing those that are productive and those who supply the mainstream of America employment.

We believe that corporations, as artificial entities, are not entitled to the Constitutional rights of people.

People operate corporations. Of course, all corporations are not equal. As part of the Democrat program, corporations like GM, General Electric, and others pay less or no taxes as part of their “incentive” program – change the tax code and this issue would be moot.

It’s time to restore responsibility and to limit the power of money to influence politics.

Yes, it is, Democrats – when are you going to practice what you preach? Let’s discuss “Green” corporations and trade unions?
This one truly got to me. The sociocrats actually tried to use the name of a Founder:

“The end of democracy and the defeat of the American Revolution will occur when government falls into the hands of lending institutions and moneyed incorporations.” – Thomas Jefferson

From the Thomas Jefferson official library:

This exact quotation has not been found in the writings of Thomas Jefferson.  It may be a mistaken amalgamation of the author’s comments in the above 1994 reference with a real Jefferson quotation.  Jefferson wrote in 1825 to William Branch Giles of “a vast accession of strength from their younger recruits, who, having nothing in them of the feelings or principles of ’76, now look to a single and splendid government of an aristocracy, founded on banking institutions, and monied incorporations under the guise and cloak of their favored branches of manufactures, commerce and navigation, riding and ruling over the plundered ploughman and beggared yeomanry.”[3]  Chomsky’s 1994 book quotes Jefferson’s 1825 letter to Giles and then comments that “[Jefferson] warned that that would be the end of democracy and the defeat of the American revolution.”

They not only misquoted and put words into something Jefferson didn’t write, but also plagiarized Chomsky’s book.
See: Jefferson to William Branch Giles, December 26, 1825, in Ford, 10:356. Polygraph copy available online from the Library of Congress.
If the Democrats are going to provide propaganda, at least they could do a better job masking the truth.

Full enforcement of antitrust laws

Meanwhile, ignoring other laws – it is selective when it comes to sociocrats and RINOs as well.

A constitutional amendment to establish that corporations shall not be considered as “persons” for purposes of political activity and to reverse the pernicious ruling that money equals speech and to institute stringent corporate campaign-contribution reporting requirements and prohibitions on such contributions without specific advance approval by stockholders who are U.S. citizens

An amendment is not required –just repeal the 16thAmendment and get rid of income tax, or, at the very least, change the tax system to a flat tax with NO deductions and limited IRS power. Then it does not matter if it is corporations or people – everyone pays.
The following is partly because of Mitt Romney’s income:

Investment banking to be separated from commercial banking and subjected to tighter regulation, transparency, and accountability (the Volker Rule)
Empowering the new Federal Financial Consumer Protection Agency to regulate financial products, consumer banking, and credit cards and to enforce full disclosure of financial instruments; …

No mention of regulating and getting Federal Reserve under control, but does mention of increasing power of government over private sector – full disclosure of financial instruments is already in place as a law. Maybe they did not notice because there are so many laws, legislators cannot keep up.

Patent and copyright laws that give corporations undue control through unnecessarily long terms and other tactics should be reformed to protect competitive opportunity and encourage creativity by others.

China must have put them onto that one.

The repeal of subsidies or tax reductions to U.S. based firms that outsource jobs overseas; multinational companies must pay their fair share of U.S. taxes and must not be allowed to use foreign tax havens; status as U.S. corporations or the ability to do business in the U.S., or federal business overseas, should be forfeited by those who violate these tenets; we support the strengthening of Controlled Foreign Corporation laws to further restrict foreign corporate registry tax havens; The return of the windfall profits tax; Strong restrictions on corporate spending on political campaigns; …

During GM’s bankruptcy, 12,000 Americans lost their jobs. [CBS News, 2/16/12 & FoxNews 5/18/12] GM used $1 million in bailout cash for something not in the plan. In 2011, GM made an astounding profit of $7.6 billion and paid ZERO federal income tax.

In the last three years, GM has created 14,000 jobs in China – and invests more than $1 billion in China each year – using the American taxpayer bailout as its investment. [China Daily, 4/20/11; Bloomberg TV, 4/26/10; General Motors Website, 8/13/12] American tax funds financed GM to produce overseas jobs as well as money to invest in foreign operations. The tax on all that profit sure would put a dent into the national debt. GM’s offshore enterprise has outsourced US jobs, and like allowing illegal aliens to work in the United States – it hurts employment.
Listening to Obama’s rhetoric, the question is –  Where did the $50 billion GM taxpayer bailout go to create American jobs?
Meanwhile, Obama and company are whining about 13% tax rate of Mitt Romney (on $20 million, which is no small change) – and GM makes a multi-billion dollar profit and pays NO tax. What was that about “fairness”?

The breakup of corporations that are too big to fail

So why was there a taxpayer bailout?
People operate corporations and there would be no need for tax havens if our government would reform our tax system. The Supreme Court said so. Of course, Obama and friends do not agree with Supreme Court, unless they sanction his ObamaCare. Oh, wait, they did. For a political entity that does not believe in constitutional law and states it is “outdated” …

These values provide the basis for our ideals and are supported by our Constitution and the Bill of Rights. …

Just read the rest. I cannot do this anymore; one can only take so much hypocrisy. They want things like “age appropriate gun safety instruction in our school system – and we know what that will end up being, like sex education.
One more thing – Democrats call for more welfare:

Congress provide adequate assistance, food stamps, earned income tax credit, child tax credit, housing and child care so children of low income families can perform at grade level.

I assume they also include 20 million illegal aliens as well.
And, of course, trying to save face for the teachers’ union, they oppose:

All so-called “reforms” that are not based upon sound and objective information, that are disguised attempts to blame teachers for the problems in public education, to weaken teacher unions, or to privatize our public education system for profit.

Democrats continued restrictions upon America energy self-sufficiency, and so on and so forth.

What little interesting proposals (and viable) are in the DNC platform is only on paper. They never have or never will follow through. Far less believable than the RNC platform when it comes to sovereignty, constitutional law, and individual rights, they even include supporting nations in their efforts to prevent the radicalization of religions and rebuilding Iraq and Afghanistan …. I thought we were leaving that to the Iraqi and Afghans?
Say one thing, do another. Unfortunately, but to a lesser degree, that describes too many Republicans. 
Compare 2008 platform with 2012 platform. See if the sociocrats lived up to the last platform.
The Democrats gist of their platform is to return Democracy back to America, and like quotations from Thomas Jefferson letters, they embellish and misuse the word democracy.The political entity is no longer “liberal”, but instead progressives (first coined by Hillary Clinton) with democratic-socialism on their agenda. Just as certain Republicans stain the term conservative.
What America truly requires are senators, representatives, presidents and judges/justices that are constitutionalists or constitutional conservatives. Conserving the Union, preserving the Constitution and its amendments, and returning our form of government created: a republic. It was what Benjamin Franklin described our nation when a woman approached him to ask what government was decided in Pennsylvania – a republic if we can keep it.
The DNC events are filled with unwarranted accolades for Barack H. Obama, as phony as his Nobel Peace award, and all the while mis-characterizing his political opponent, Mitt Romney (and Paul Ryan). The sociocrats have lied so much I feel that too many actually now believe their own propaganda.
