Dem platform 2012: How’d donkey party do?
On June 8 and 9, the Democrats had there first in a series of meetings to discuss their 2016 election platform. On their Facebook page, they described it as “the first in a series of regional events designed to engage every voice in the party.”
This two-day gathering could have taken place in Flint, Michigan (water crisis), Ferguson, Missouri (racial unrest) or Charlotte, North Carolina (transgender), but instead, it took place in Washington, D.C., in order to – you know – engage “every” voice in the party, because that’s where the little people whom leadership claim to represent would surely be. It certainly had nothing to do with the concentration of lobbyists, Big Education and labor union thugs and other assorted cronies who just happen to reside in D.C.
Because the process has just begun, there are no details to report as to specific platform agenda items. However, on Friday, the Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) did change their official convention banner. It’s quite lovely and tells us of at least one of their major platform issues at the 2016 convention.
