Act on God, Jerusalem a Disaster for Dems

Just as RHSimard stated in the below post, if I had voted I would have also been in favor of restoring God and Jerusalem as the capital. But clearly not having 2/3 of the vote to reassert it in the platform not only with the first vote but also with two more consecutive votes is proof that the Democratic party can no longer be trusted with the USA form of Democracy. What's going to happen in the Presidential Election on November 6th when Romney/Ryan get elected to the White House? Are the Democrats going to demand not just one recount but two more besides, and when it's still evident that Obama lost are they going to declare Martial Law and deem the Election as illegal and then proclaim Obama King of the United States?

The real question is whether the US can survive with so many internal enemies waiting to pounce? We are now a people of two minds. A house divided. It is very unlikely that two such people can live under the same roof. I fear for the Union.

I've long felt that the USA is headed towards a split, along something like the lines of Red State-Blue State. It will take a while, but I have read that people with portable professions are already choosing where to settle down by finding a place where their politics are welcome. That means the Red State - Blue State divide is increasing and becoming better defined. Eventually, I can see a non-violent, referendum type of split into two nations. I am far from alone in this belief.

Yeah, this was an example of Democrats at their worst -- oily bigwigs scrambling to control damage and finally overruling voters while the rank and file booed God and Jerusalem. I wish that the RNC would run a tape of that pathetic exercise five times a day in every major market for the next two months. But it's too wimpy to do anything that provocative.

No, I suspect you'll be seeing a lot of that voice "vote" in the coming weeks.

I think they know better than to try since the Democrats could respond with video of the Republicans doing the exact same thing at their convention. Did you not see the rule change the Republicans made that was also pushed through over a clear nay vote?

I would sure like to have a link to that.

For decades, support for Israel has been one of the few issues that consistently brought Democrats and Republicans together.  That seems to be coming to an end with an increasingly ambivalent – even hostile – Obama Administration in Washington and now a significantly weakened Democrat Party Platform.

Reports from the Washington Free Beacon include the following:

For Jerusalem, the new platform has been brought into line with the Obama administration’s policy of not recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and supporting its division. Jerusalem is unmentioned in the 2012 document, whereas the...
