An alternative to Democrats' moral bankruptcy

As a liberal leaning voter, I find it very disappointing to hear that so may conservatives are willing to give up on our awesome country! I continue to believe that the greatest strength of this country is our tolerance of opposing views on issues. I disagree with so many conservative positions, but am thankful to live in a country where opposing views can peacefully coexist. I never once considered giving up on this country when living through 8 years of the Bush administration even though I disagreed with so many things he did!

Maybe Democrats have some slick salesmen, like Bill Clinton and our current president, who can sell you swampland and have you convinced that you've bought choice beachfront property.

But the omission of any mention of God and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital from the Democratic Party platform, which were in it in 2008, and then the almost-failed attempt to add them after the fact, showed the clear truth about the 2012 Democratic Party.

It took three boisterous floor votes to add these principles to the platform. Listening to the ayes and nays on the third vote, it is questionable...
