The Democrat Party Platform Is A Gallows

I have to put this back up at the top for a bit because today at DBD, Chris Muir, someone I consider a friend (because he emailed me once), has the same view of the Democrat platform as I do – but presents it in a far more attractive manner:

CBS notes that the Democrats unveiled their platform for the convention. The major planks are:

  • Abortion
  • Gay marriage
  • Higher taxes

Interesting that all of these lead to one thing.

Death.

  1. Abortion kills babies (if you are a Democrat, it kills a parasitic aggregation of cells, like a tumor, but a tumor that if left alone, will form a human).
  2. Gay marriage stops reproduction (humans are not capable of asexual reproduction)
  3. Higher taxes kill economic growth leading to more poor with “food insecurity”

Add “climate change” and “environmentalism” and thier attendant wars on energy production and actual human progress to those three and we have a self-loathing party that is running on the destruction of mankind as if that was a good thing.

    • Except you are writing about political death and I am speaking about actual cessation of human life.

      Couple of months and we’ll see how close your prediction is. I’m guessing the answer is “not very”. I’m seeing conditions shaping up like the 1980 election where all the polls had Carter ahead and Reagan crushed him.

      I think there are a lot of mushy moderates out there who are subject to the Bradley effect…they are embarrassed to speak about not voting for The One in their little circles but come election day and in the privacy of the election booth, they intend to pull the lever for Romney – or not vote at all.

      Not so on the Republican side.

      There is a preference cascade building ala the Abilene Paradox.

        This would be because they do not have anything to say about their piss-poor management of the economy. All they can do is “well, we inherited a mess” … same messages as 4 years ago.

        That argument no longer really resonates.

        The state of the economy speaks to Maslow’s Heirarchy of Needs on all levels, but most important of those needs right this moment are physiological, and safety. Our economy does nothing to promote that sense of well being, and frankly Obama and his band of dolts has done nothing to help that.

      • “a preference cascade building ala the Abilene Paradox”

        An interesting thought. After all, I’ve heard perhaps hundreds of talking heads says “it’s going to be close,” and I simply don’t buy it (at least in electoral votes).

        “I’m seeing conditions shaping up like the 1980 election where all the polls had Carter ahead and Reagan crushed him.”

        An interesting thought, though and sometimes people misremember how close the polls were, when they had Carter leading: http://voices.washingtonpost.com/behind-the-numbers/2008/10/reagans_comeback.html

        Of course the polls also are close now, polling wasn’t as good or done as much state by state back in 1980 when Carter
        s approval rating was below 30 percent (compared to Obama’s, which while not great has been running about 20 points higher than that).. In addition, Carter had both Jerry Brown and Ted Kennedy beating up on him throughout the primaries. He only got 60 percent of the vote at the Democratic Convention, and remarkable small percentage for a sitting president. There was talk of a brokered convention not long before it started.

        On the GOP side, Reagan was the favorite from the beginning. Romney compares favorable to him in that regard, much less favorably in”likability” or generating enthusiasm–as indicated by the fact that even the GOP convention doesn’t seem to have given him a bump in the polls.

        The history/political science geek in me is slightly hoping for an Electoral College tie, though I think that and the resulting fiasco (one candidate wins because of a “faithless elector”—-probably a Ron Paul elector) or Romney wins because it’s thrown into the House of Representatives.

      • And speaking of polls, it looks like folks were more excited about Bob Dole than about Mitt: http://www.gallup.com/poll/157256/gop-convention-romney-speech-evoke-lukewarm-reactions.aspx?utm_source=alert&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=syndication&utm_content=morelink&utm_term=All+Gallup+Headlines+-+Politics

        Of course, that could change. What make the big difference in 1980 was the debates, and Romney is apparently spending time this week practicing for those while Obama is busy with the convention stuff.

    • Don’t let Sarah Palin hear you using that word–it’s one of few multi-syllable words that she understands. 😉

      • …what SP thinks wont change the truth.

        ….and what is with these progressives that they are so fixated on Sarah Palin? get over it she isn’t even running. just that poser (communist free-loader obama and biden, the latter being intellectual of the two) are running against Romney and Ryan. while hardly conservative they at least are pro-America.

        anyone who would vote for obama is a retard.

          • @ General “….and what is with these progressives that they are so fixated on Sarah Palin?”

            Because when there is nothing left, they have to demonize.

            @ Greg ” there IS no truth in what you say” — who’s card did Sarah Palin join on this election cycle? What does that make you?

              • General: “.and what is with these progressives that they are so fixated on Sarah Palin? get over it she isn’t even running”
                Greg: “there IS no truth in what you say, general p; so waqht does that make you?”

                “ignorant and uninformed” – Ok, I will bite. I am “ignorant” and “uninformed”, so please Greg, with your vast intellectual prowess tell me exactly what Sarah Palin is running for?

                What is a WW and a SP?

                But then again, I am “ignorant”, and “uninformed”.

                Inform me, and educate me …. Greg.

  1. I guess it makes me some one who will no longer be visiting this site.

    good day (yes I know you don’t care, I will not let the door slam on my backside)

  2. “I guess it makes me some one who will no longer be visiting this site.”

    Gee, sorry to drive away one of your readers, Utah–apparently a couple of liberal voices are too many for the general to handle. 🙂
