Today's Democrat Party (the party of ABORTION) is NOT THE PARTY OF YOUR PARENTS OR GRANDPARENTS!
One look at the recent NC State Democratic Convention demonstrates the extreme liberal fringe that makes up today’s North Carolina Democratic Party. Resolutions adopted by the NCDP at their convention include:
• A single-payer national healthcare system (which would be significantly to the left of the job-killing monstrosity that is ObamaCare)
• Repeal of the marriage amendment (that was recently approved by 61% of North Carolinians)
• The full legalization of marijuana (not just for medicinal purposes, which is a position to the left of even California Democrats)
• The abandonment of nuclear energy as part of the U.S. energy policy (which would in turn force us to become even more dependent on foreign oil)
• Full abolishment of the death penalty
• A demand for collective bargaining rights for workers (which would be extremely detrimental to attracting new business investment in North Carolina)
• Opposition to state-level immigration reform (while the federal government continues to ignore the issue)
• The creation of a Cabinet-level Department of Peace and Nonviolence (which is just absurd)
These positions are so outside of the mainstream, one wonders if they were even meant to be serious. Of course, you never know what to expect when you’re dealing with the same body that decided to keep their Party Chairman after his role in the cover-up of a sexual harassment scandal, who continue to support the least popular governor in the country (who may have recently committed fraud by altering official documents to protect her pet spending projects), and who just nominated a candidate for governor who has promised to keep the exact same policies as his predecessor.
