September 3, 2012 Democrats Unveil Their National Platform
WASHINGTON - Democrats unveiled a party platform at their national convention Monday that echoes President Barack Obama's call for higher taxes on wealthier Americans while backing same-sex marriage and abortion rights.
Delegates will vote Tuesday to adopt the platform that reflects the president's argument that his work is unfinished and he deserves another four years to complete the job.
"Today, our economy is growing again, al-Qaeda is weaker than at any point since 9/11, and our manufacturing sector is growing for the first time in more than a decade. But there is more we need to do, and so we come together again to continue what we started," the platform said.

Death and Taxes!
Who would have thought a few years ago that the democratic party would turn into the party of queer “marriage” and baby murdering on demand..........paid for by our tax dollars.
WooHoo! Facism! We can all get on board!
As usual, the democraps want to tax the hell out of the job creators and reward the lay-abouts who contribute nothing to the economy.
Same socialist redistribution BS, different election cycle.
1)You economy is moving at less than a snail’s pace.
2)Most American can’t even remember who Al-Qeade was or is.
3)What is made in America anymore as everyone who got stimulus funds either moved to China or closed up shop.
4)Steve marrying Steve and Sally getting a abortion in the 9 month is truly the sign of a sick mind.
5)Let us hug our fellow Communist today.
Let's see: higher taxes for everyone is typical marxist philosophy. Same sex marriage is a non-sequitar, morally wrong, and is typical marxist philosophy. Abortion rights are a made up concept, commonly called infanticide, and is typical marxist philosophy.
All of the above can be read in the Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx.
If 0bama looks like a marxist, talks like a marxist, acts like a marxist, then he must be a marxist.
That appears to be Debbie Blabbermouth Schultz’s ample and well padded derriere.
That DNC logo is sure creepy. Is the central outlined person supposed to be Obama in the middle of his dvinie aureole “O”? Talk about Maoist cult of personality!
Step right up, come on in...free admission. Gonna be a freak show.
I can’t wait for Clinton to end his keynote with “I wouldn’t vote for this guy under any circumstances. He’s dangerous.”
I know, but one can only hope.
Wassername and Sheila jackson lee are without a doubt the queens of the caboose!
The “people” are “red”.
First.....the “crops (farmers)” were “red” in the original Obama logo. Now, the “peeps”......with a “rainbow” over them.
Or, “A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags.”
I’m seeing it the way you do. This is a good description...
Is the central outlined person supposed to be Obama in the middle of his dvinie aureole O?
Yep! Big ears and all!
That logo reeks of commie messaging....
Have you looked at Google, today? Probably the ONLY time they’ve used the flag in their logo. Go have a look.
It’s because it’s “Labor Day”.
Looks like two of the people in the logo accidently bumped hands while giving their salute to der fuhrer.
proposal to generate 80 percent of the nations electricity from clean energy sources by 2035 including nuclear energy and carbon capture and storage coal technology
giving 80 percent of Americans access to high-speed rail by 2035
The platform also calls for comprehensive immigration reform, citing the Dream Act, legislation that would allow children brought to the U.S. by undocumented-immigrant parents to get legal status if they go to college or join the military, would no longer deport some young adults brought to the U.S. illegally as children.
While the platform promises to preserve Americans Second Amendment right to own and use firearms, it also says that the right to own firearms is subject to reasonable regulation, such as restoring the ban on assault-style weapons and strengthening background checks.
May as well admit they’re commies too.
Pray for America
I’m totally baffled as to why they didn’t hire Cheap Trick to open the convention up with “Highway to Hell”.
If, by "a few years ago", you mean the 1960s, I'd say, very few. It's been as plain as the nose on your face since at least the 1970s.
p.s. Around here, we call them the Democrat party - not the Democratic party.
LOL two queer showing their support to the mighty Fuhrer Obummer.
I wonder if the LifeLock company agrees with their logo being displayed on that jumbotron? They advertise on all the big conservative talk shows.
They are hypocrites since by simple logic they shouldn’t even exist after being aborted.
I like the platform...abort Dems!
Yep. That's one woman who can be recognized coming and going.
...and that's just when we're being polite! :)
Probably because the song was written and recorded by AC/DC.
Maybe the best money the RNC could spend would be to promote the DNC platform....
Four more years of the Empty Suit, Empty Chair
yeah, that’ll work!
Its aimed at the party’s Far Left.
It will be ignored for the general election since it would offend the middle.
American party platforms don’t have the weight do in European party congresses, thank Heaven!
But while the Republicans are FDR liberals, the Democrats are out and out Marxists.
I’ve started calling it the Debbies Crap party...
Good one! Someone ought to start a list.
Clinton will be more subtle, but he’s definitely going to stab obastard in the back. Politically, of course...
Well, Cheap Trick could have played their song, "I Want You To Want Me". Seems appropriate.
“But while the Republicans are FDR liberals...”
Wha? Who do you mean? I hope you are kidding.
There was no talk of queer “marriage” in the 70s. This was absolutely unheard of. Not much talk of abortion before the braindead Supreme Court ruled it legal in 1973. And I meant to say DEMONCRATS.
That appears to be Debbie Blabbermouth Schultzs ample and well padded derriere.
I think we should have a “ butt off” contest between Moochelle and Washerwoman
Im totally baffled as to why they didnt hire Cheap Trick to open the convention up with Highway to Hell.
Good one. Very fitting
All true, but the Dems didn't sink this low in just the last few years. They've been pushing the country toward their current degraded objectives for a very long time now. In my view, they haven't been a patriotic American political party since at least the time of Truman.
Oh, they've got plenty of big-@$$ contestants. I saw a real quivering fat-@$$ sheRAT on C-SPIN this morning.
I really really really don't want to see that.
Either that or AC/DC.
Of course that would remind the RATs of Paul Ryan's i-Pod.
I think "Surrender" would be more appropriate.
