Today, the Democratic Party official changed two stances in their platform. One change passed was:

1. "We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make most of their God-given potential."

Basically they are giving more recognition to God in their platform. This is not typical in the Democratic Party as leftists generally consider God to be left out of things like the Pledge in school for example as well as their own national platform.

The second is actually very basic. President Obama recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, but the party's national platform has not. So the second is for the party platform to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The vote took place at the convention based on a yell-out (you yell "aye" for for it and "no" for against it) and the results were, well look.

I honestly do not see a 2/3 majority there. It sounds more 50-50 yet the Democrats passed it. What do you think? Was there a 2/3 majority? A 50-50 split? Only 1/3 or less in support? If you think it was less than 2/3, why do you think it was passed anyway?

These are important political views. People should give a f*ck.

No way that was 2/3. Chairman Moa (don't know his real name) just passed it because he had no clue.

Is it that hard to just stop it? Why must it get passed? Why do you they want it passed? I think to get more evangelical Christian votes.
