National Committeeman Bruce Ash Op Ed: The big take away from the democrat national convention won't be Bill Clinton's speech . Or even the president's acceptance address. What american voters will get (at least the few Americans who actually could stand to watch the proceedings on TV)  is just how far left the Democrat Party has  become and how so many of them apparently live in an alternate universe from the rest of us. 
          To make this point we know it took three messy floor votes to add "God" back into their platform and jeers filled the hall when it was decided whether or not Jerusalem was in fact the capital of Israel. I'm still not sure if they were in agreement .This hardly sounds like the party Of FDR , Truman And JFK to me.
The other take away is the Democrat Party has told us paid abortions for all has become synonomous with "liberty and justice for all." Sandra Fluke, that innocent law school student, has become the the left's spokesperson not just for abortion on demand but for federally paid abortions for everyone. 
It should be pointed out the Obama campaign could have weighed in on all of these issues to avoid controversy and present a more mainstream agenda but didn't - but let's not forget the most important thing about this convention. 
It's the economy stupid. Bill Clinton knew that when he served. We simply are not better off than we were four years ago and repeating the same brain dead presidential policies won't solve any of our problems either.
T’was the night before elections,
And all thru' the town,
Tempers were flaring
Emotions ran up and down.
I, in my bathrobe
With a cat in my lap,
Had shut off the TV,
tired of political crap.
When all of a sudden,
There arose such a noise,  
I peered out my window,  
Saw Obama and his boys
They had come for my wallet,
They wanted my pay  
To hand out to others  
Who had not worked a day!
He snatched up my money,  
And quick as a wink,  
Jumped back on his bandwagon  
As I gagged from the stink.
He then rallied his henchmen  
Who were pulling his cart.  
I could tell they were out  
To tear my country apart!
On Fannie, on Freddie,
On Biden and Ayers!  
On Acorn, on Pelosi'  
He screamed at the pairs!
They took off for his cause,
And as they flew out of sight,  
I heard him laugh at a nation  
Who wouldn't stand up and fight!
So I leave you to think
On this one final note...

Killing Natural Marriage. Almost…
I saw photos of Democrat women dressed in head-to-toe female genitalia costumes who called themselves Democrat slut votes.  And yes they were at the Democrat convention.  They were predictably protesting in favor of no-restriction abortion-on-demand and taxpayer-covered birth control.  I'm opposed to paying for their abortions and birth control, but I'd chip in a few bucks for them to have their heads examined, but I digress. 
The point I want to get to is that they have depraved lunatics like those women making their case for abortion and infanticide one day and then the next day they have Bill Clinton who is not just a serial philanderer and a serial abuser of women, but a man who has been accused of rape multiple times, as well.  And, as if that were not bad enough, Clinton is placing into nomination the man who the late Larry Sinclair went to his grave doing interviews, in highly respected and credible venues, saying that he and Obama had been engaged in a homosexual relationship.
Then there are the persistent rumors that Michelle Obama has been involved in an adulterous relationship with a secret service agent.  There is also Planned Parenthood Action Fund's invitation-only Sex, Politics, and Cocktails signature party.
The only thing missing is a Sodom street address with a Gomorra zip code.  And this is the party that claims conservatives are clueless and evil.  – Mychal Massie
The Immigration Factor: If We Do Nothing-What We Face. In short, it’s going to get ugly with ethnic confrontations and linguistic chaos and separation of the national ethos. It’s going to get uglier with intractable poverty by the millions. It’s going to get hopeless once that 100 million immigrants settle onto our shores. It’s going to degrade all our lives to levels we are just beginning to see as the example of 46 million Americans now living on food stamps in 2012 and over 14 million unemployed with a $16 trillion national debt......
