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.
We, as Democrats, place the welfare of the people as our highest priority.
We believe in the values of community, dignity, equality, opportunity, fairness, tolerance, respect, and the common good of the world we share.
Our actions define our 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.
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.
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.

“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
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.” 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.”

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.
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.
