They tried to erase the first two problems with a proposal to change the platform to put G-d back in the platform and to support the idea of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. However, the vote on this change made a mockery of the "democratic" process. Under Democratic Convention rules it takes a 2/3 majority to pass a change to the platform. Three votes were taken by acclamation and if anything they were split equally, far away from the requirement. However, the Chairman of the convention, finally decided that after the third vote that there was enough support to say the changes were adopted.
The damage had been done, it was clear the proponents did not have enough support to pass the changes but the rule of one man, made it so. So much for democracy. We thought these guys and gals were all for democracy, guess we are wrong again.
Having a unrepentant law breaker speak at the Convention was a travesty. Since when do we honor someone with the great privilege of speaking, when their very presence is against the law? Today, under current law, anyone here illegally is an illegal alien and should be deported. Why this glorious reward?
We believe is that the Democratic Party has lost its soul in an attempt to win votes. They will say anything, do anything to curry favor with fringe groups to they might win the election. Winning is all that counts anymore! They have no morals, anything can be done for the vote.
They will sell out anyone, any group or any country if the votes are not there. Or they will take any position, support any group where they might garner more votes, regardless of its moral or ethical implications' So much for "doing what is in the best interests of the country." We believe that if Democratic Party thought they would get more votes, they would support mass murder of American citizens.
These are not pretty sights, seeing a major party lose its way. Hopefully, they will regain some of their moorings but we believe those chances are poor.
