Party v Philosophy
Democratic Party Cont’d
In this series, we break down each United States party’s philosophy and measure that against their original and most recent platform, starting with the Democratic Party. 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 part one of this episode, we checked out their very first party platform, discussed the history behind some of what it said, and evaluated their initial stances. We follow that in part two by going through the highlights of the 31 page Democratic Party platform from 2014, comparing it to the original, and discussing how their ideals have changed or stayed the same.
