Party v Philosophy
In this series, we break down each United States party’s philosophy starting with the Democratic Party, and measure that against their most recent platform. Many people identify as a member of a political party based on its principle, but find themselves being contradicted be the party’s actions or platform. In this series, we seek to identify those contradictions, and how they came to be.
In this episode, we checked out the 1840 party platform, discussed the history behind some of what it said, and evaluated their initial stances. We will follow this in part two by going through the highlights of the 31 page Democratic Party platform from 2012, comparing it to the original, and discussing how their ideals have changed or stayed the same.
