material for these talking points
Party Platform of 1840
Resolved, That congress has no power, under the constitution, to
interfere with or control the domestic institutions of the several
states, and that such states are the sole and proper judges of
everything appertaining to their own affairs, not prohibited by the
constitution; that all efforts by abolitionists or others, made
to induce congress to interfere with questions of slavery, or to
take incipient steps in relation thereto, are calculated to lead to
the most alarming and dangerous consequences, and that all such
efforts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the
people, and endanger the stability and permanency of the union, and
ought not to be countenanced by any friend to our political
it was okay for Democrats to sanction slavery because it interfered
with state rights, but, Obama Care is okay instead? Damn racist

Resolved, That the separation of the moneys of the government from
banking institutions, is indispensable for the safety of the funds
of the government, and the rights of the people.
this mean no more Freddie and Fannie Mac and we throw Barney Frank,
who was getting a penis shoved up his behind by Moss at "Fannie"
(no conflict of interest there) out of office?
Frank opposed Bush proposal for transferring oversight of Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac from Congress and HUD.
stated, "These two entities...are not facing any kind of
financial crisis.... The more people exaggerate these problems, the
more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in
terms of affordable housing."
George Bush #43 could have been a Democrat in 1840!
Party Platform of 1848
That the war with Mexico, provoked on her part by years of insult
and injury, was commenced by her army crossing the Rio Grande,
attacking the American troops, and invading our sister State of
Texas; and that, upon all the principles of patriotism and laws of
nations, it is a just and necessary war on our part, in which every
American citizen should have shown himself on the side of his
country, and neither morally nor physically, by word or by deed,
have given "aid and comfort to the enemy."
a few thousand troops over the border is a war, but, 400,000
invaders in Arizona alone, with many members of MS-13 selling drugs
and having more and better weapons than the whole Mexican Army of
1848 (and our current police force), is not?
I don't think the Mexican army back then had gold plated and diamond
encrusted semi-automatic rifles, .50 caliper BMG, or rocket
Party Platform of 1852
That the war with Mexico, upon all the principles of patriotism and
the laws of nations was a just and necessary war on our part, in
which every American citizen should have shown himself on the side
of his country, and neither morally nor physically, by word or deed,
have given "aid and comfort to the enemy."
would the Democratic party of 1852 call people giving invaders maps
and bottled water. to help them penetrate our southern border?
That we rejoice at the restoration of friendly relations with our
sister republic of Mexico, and earnestly desire for her all the
blessings and prosperity which we enjoy under republican
institutions; and we congratulate the American people on the results
of that war, which have so manifestly justified the policy and
conduct of the democratic party, and insured to the United States,
"indemnity for the past and security for the future."
such as a rancher shot to death on his own property or a police man
bush wacked while on patrol? (RHPS: Damn it Janet - I don't mean
That, in view of the condition of popular institutions in the Old
World, a high and sacred duty is devolved, with increased
responsibility upon the democratic party of this country, as the
party of the people, to uphold and maintain the rights of every
State, and thereby the Union of the States, and to sustain and
advance among us constitutional liberty, by continuing to resist all
monopolies and exclusive legislation for the benefit of the few
at the expense of the many,
this mean the Democratic party of 1852 would oppose the corn husker
kick back and Louisiana purchase in Obama Care? Or does it mean they
would oppose making insurance mandatory for all Americans to benefit
the 10 million or less of real Americans that can't afford it or
don't want it?
by a vigilant and constant adherence to those principles and
compromises of the constitution, which are broad enough and strong
enough to embrace and uphold the Union as it was, the Union as it
is, and the Union as it shall be, in the full expansion of the
energies and capacity of this great and progressive people.
to self, I am starting to see a pattern develop here with
Party Platform of 1856
That the Federal Government is one of limited power, derived solely
from the Constitution; and the grants of power made therein ought to
be strictly construed by all the departments and agents of the
government; and that it is inexpedient and dangerous to exercise
doubtful constitutional powers.
does this mean we get rid of Obama Care right now? It is DANGEROUS!
That the Constitution does not confer upon the General Government
the power to commence and carry on a general system of internal
almost sounds like limited government and the StimUwaste should not
be funding shovel ready projects or university research with tax
That the Constitution does not confer authority upon the Federal
Government, directly or indirectly, to assume the debts of the
several States, contracted for local and internal improvements, or
other State purposes; nor would such assumption be just or
the Democrats of 1856 insist the USA not bail out Californication or
guarantee any loans or bonds. You are on your own!
That justice and sound policy forbid the Federal Government to
foster one branch of industry to the detriment of any other, or
to cherish the interests of one portion to the injury of another
portion of our common country;
really, the old democrats never would have approved of the corn
husker kick back or promoting the "green" companies over
oil companies. Interesting ...
every citizen and every section of the country has a right to demand
and insist upon an equality of rights and privileges, and to
complete and ample protection of persons and property from domestic
violence or foreign aggression.
does that mean the democrats of 1856 would approve of securing our
borders so the citizens and property of Arizona could be free from
domestic violence and foreign aggression ?
That it is the duty of every branch of the Government to enforce and
practice the most rigid economy in conducting our public affairs,
and that no more revenue ought to be raised than is required to
defray the necessary expenses of the Government, and for the
gradual but certain extinction of the public debt.
I have to double check, is this the Republican platform? Did you
guys know, while you were out of work and losing your house, the
Federal government bought 16,000 new mini-vans from Chrysler with
stimulus money? Cost about $256,000,000. Them be pimping rides and
only the best!
That Congress has no power to charter a national bank; that
we believe such an institution one of deadly hostility to the best
interests of the country, dangerous to our republican institutions
and the liberties of the people,
Paul, you could have been a 1856 Democrat! Think they would have
been yelling "audit the fed" too?
calculated to place the business of the country within the control
of a concentrated money power, and above the laws and the will of
the people; and that the results of Democratic legislation in this
and all other financial measures upon which issues have been made
between the two political parties of the country, have demonstrated
to candid and practical men of all parties, their soundness, safety,
and utility, in all business pursuits.
That the separation of the moneys of the Government from banking
institutions is indispensable for the safety of the funds of the
Government and the rights of the people.
Paul, you REALLY could have been a 1856 Democrat!
Whereas, Since the foregoing declaration was uniformly adopted by
our predecessors in National Conventions, an adverse political and
religious test has been secretly organized by a party claiming to be
exclusively American, it is proper that the American Democracy
should clearly define its relation thereto, and declare its
determined opposition to all secret political societies, by whatever
name they may be called
know, I think they would have disapproved of just about everyone on
this list in public (pubic office if you are Studs, Craig, Massa, or
Frank) office since 1960.
upon the sectional issue of Domestic slavery, and concerning
the reserved rights of the States.
for you young black kids, the Democratic party condoned (that means
That Congress has no power under the Constitution, to interfere with
or control the domestic institutions of the several States, and that
such States are the sole and proper judges of everything
appertaining to their own affairs, not prohibited by the
Constitution; that all efforts of the abolitionists, or others, made
to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery, or to
take incipient steps in relation thereto,

calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences;
and that all such efforts have an inevitable tendency to diminish
the happiness of the people and endanger the stability and
permanency of the Union, and ought not to be countenanced by any
friend of our political institutions.
democrats, what about slavery diminishing the happiness of the
That the foregoing proposition covers, and was intended to embrace
the whole subject of slavery agitation in Congress; and therefore,
the Democratic party of the Union, standing on this national
platform, will abide by and adhere to a faithful execution of the
acts known as the compromise measures, settled by the Congress of
1850; "the act for reclaiming fugitives from service or labor,"
included; which act being designed to carry out an express provision
of the Constitution, cannot, with fidelity thereto, be repealed, or
so changed as to destroy or impair its efficiency.
will post Frederick Douglas's book of 1855 later so you can see how
he felt about the "compromise" and being beaten. I think
it diminished his happiness.
That the Democratic party will resist all attempts at renewing, in
Congress or out of it, the agitation of the slavery question under
whatever shape or color the attempt may be made.
Resolved, That claiming fellowship with, and desiring the
co-operation of all who regard the preservation of the Union under
the Constitution as the paramount issue—and repudiating all
sectional parties and platforms concerning domestic slavery, which
seek to embroil the States and incite to treason and armed
resistance to law in the Territories; and whose avowed purposes, if
consummated, must end in civil war and disunion, the American
Democracy recognize and adopt the principles contained in the
organic laws establishing the Territories of Kansas and Nebraska as
embodying the only sound and safe solution of the "slavery
question" upon which the great national idea of the people of
this whole country can repose in its determined conservatism of the
Union—NON-INTERFERENCE BY CONGRESS WITH SLAVERY IN STATE
AND TERRITORY, OR IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.
tea bagging democrats! Or as Bill would say, if you
were a democrat you most likely approved of slavery.
That we recognize the right of the people of all the Territories,
including Kansas and Nebraska, acting through the legally and fairly
expressed will of a majority of actual residents, and whenever the
number of their inhabitants justifies it, to form a Constitution,
with or without domestic slavery, and be admitted into the
Union upon terms of perfect equality with the other States.
am starting to see a pattern here, democrats for slavery,
republicans against it.
Finally, That in view of the condition of popular institutions in
the Old World (and the dangerous tendencies of sectional agitation,
combined with the attempt to enforce civil and religious
disabilities against the rights of acquiring and enjoying
citizenship, in our own land) a high and sacred duty is devolved
with increased responsibility upon the Democratic party of this
country, as the party of the Union, to uphold and maintain the
rights of every State, and thereby the Union of the States; and to
sustain and advance among us constitutional liberty, by
continuing to resist all monopolies and exclusive legislation for
the benefit of the few, at the expense of the many, and by a
vigilant and constant adherence to those principles and compromises
of the Constitution, which are broad enough and strong enough to
embrace and uphold the Union as it was, the Union as it is, and the
Union as it shall be, in the full expansion of the energies and
capacity of this great and progressive people.
you young blacks with a public school education, this means
democrats opposed laws to set slaves free. It would only benefit a
few, mostly the slaves. Forget history, forget all those "democrat"
laws to prevent blacks from owning handguns in inner cities (it has
worked out swell in Chicago and DC) , or blocking school vouchers.
There is no reason to call Obama an uncle Tom for opposing private
hand gun ownership.
the democrats are your friends, have some more cool-aid!
Party Platform of 1860
Resolved, That it is the duty of the United States to afford ample
and complete protection to all its citizens, whether at home or
abroad, and whether native or foreign born.
I bet these democrats would have been outraged at a private land
owner being gunned down by invaders on his own ranch in Arizona!
Party Platform of 1864
the interference with and denial of the right of the people to
bear arms in their defense is calculated to prevent a restoration of
the Union and the perpetuation of a Government deriving its just
powers from the consent of the governed.

democratic party opposes private handgun ownership.

canceled the 40 acres and a mule, not the Republicans. Wait, when

declare and resolve, That ever since the people of the United States
threw off all subjection to the British crown, the
privilege and trust of suffrage have belonged to the several States,
and have been granted, regulated, and controlled exclusively by

the separate existence of the States will be entirely absorbed, and

the people, and should be disposed of either under the

have mocked me for saying the founding fathers would have a stroke
that the Federal government owned so much land, but, I guess it
takes it coming from the 1868 democrats to make it true.
can the public have it's land back? I heard Alaska where the
government owns 98% of the land, that land could really be used by
it's native population including the mongoloids (Eskimos - I will be
touching on that later). Utah would like it's 60% of it's land back
too. How about giving back that 100 million acres Bill CLITon
declared monuments? I am sure there are poor Indians that would love
to move there, off the reservations where they now live in poverty
and are targeted by abortion mills.
When grants of
the public lands may be deemed necessary for the encouragement of
important public improvements, the proceeds of the sale of such
lands, and not the lands themselves, should be so applied.
President of the United States, Andrew Johnson,

the power of his high office in resisting the aggressions of
Congress upon the Constitutional rights of the States and the
people, is entitled to the gratitude of the whole American people;
and in behalf of the Democratic party, we tender him our thanks for
his patriotic efforts in that regard.

Party Platform of 1872
We therefore regard a thorough reform of the Civil Service as one of
the most pressing necessities of the hour; that honesty, capacity,
and fidelity constitute the only valid claim to public employment;
that the offices of the Government cease to be a matter of
arbitrary favoritism and patronage, and that public station
shall become again a place of honor. To this end it is
imperatively required that no President shall be a candidate for
the democrats of 1872 do not think you should run for election in
2012! Why don't you honor the memory of the founders of your party,
it is the right thing to do.
We are opposed to all further grants of lands to railroads or other
corporations. The public domain should be held sacred to actual

President, Vice-President, judges, senators, representatives,
cabinet officers—these and all others in authority are the
limits? When they thought the President should serve only one term,
what would they think of Byrd and Dingell?

Pelosi, that would mean no more government or military jets and
the annals of this Republic show disgrace and censure of a

profiting secretly by their votes as law-makers;
you name three senators that tried to profit secretly by their votes
for Obama Care?
is a hint, one of them is the guy throwing the babies to the trolls:
chairmen of the leading committees of the late House of
Representatives exposed in jobbery; a late Secretary of the Treasury
forcing balances in the public accounts; a late Attorney-General
misappropriating public funds; a Secretary of the Navy enriched and
enriching friends by a percentage levied off the profits of
contractors with his department; an Ambassador to England censured
in a dishonorable speculation; the President's Private Secretary
barely escaping conviction upon trial for guilty complicity in
frauds upon the revenue; a Secretary of War impeached for high
crimes and misdemeanors—the demonstration is complete, that
the first step in reform must be the people's choice of honest men
from another party,
the disease of one political organization infect the body politic,
and lest by making no change of men or parties, we get no change of
measures and no real reform.
Party Platform of 1880
The right to a free ballot is the right preservative of all rights,
and must and shall be maintained in every part of the United States.
union card check for 1880 democrats?
Public money and public credit for public purposes solely, and
public land for actual settlers.
that sounds like no TARP and no STIMULUS! I better check to make
sure this is the democrat platform ... it is!
can the American people at least have it's own land back to settle?

democrats want to protect you from the greedy and socialist justice
system of France. You know, based on the "rights of men"
(social justice for those with a public school ed-u-ma-cation)
instead of the Bible, providence of God, and manifest destiny.
so you do not have to look for it and work your brain too much
thinking for yourself, if you are a party democrat or republican,
here is a copy.
notice the French do not mention God, Jesus, or the Creator. No

change is necessary is proved by an existing surplus of more than
$100,000,000, which has yearly been collected from a suffering
people. Unnecessary taxation is unjust taxation. We denounce the
Republican party for having failed to relieve the people from
crushing war taxes which have paralyzed business, crippled industry,
and deprived labor of employment and of just reward.
The democrats were at one time the save-o-crats and not the
revenue to pay all the expenses of the Federal Government,

principal on the public debt, can be got, under our present system
of taxation, from the custom house taxes on fewer imported articles,

articles of necessity.

is a war tax, and so long as the law continues, the money
derived therefrom should be sacredly devoted to the relief of the
people from the remaining burdens of the war, and be made a fund
to defray the expenses of the care and comfort of worthy soldiers
disabled in line of duty in the wars of the Republic and for the
payment of such pensions as Congress may from time to time grant to
such soldiers, a like fund for the sailors having been already
provided; and any surplus should be paid into the Treasury.

with you not giving us our land back to be settled.

brief word from our land Lord:

God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let
them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of
the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every
creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he
him; male and female created he them.
God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply,
and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion
over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over
every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is
upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the
fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to
every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I
have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.
And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
all unearned lands heretofore improvidently granted to railroad
corporations by the action of the Republican party should be
restored to the public domain; and that no more grants of land
shall be made to corporations, or be allowed to fall into the
ownership of alien absentees.

people, nearly one hundred millions of acres of valuable land to

Party Platform of 1892
Republican party, while professing a policy of reserving the public
land for small holdings by actual settlers, has given away the
people's heritage, till now a few railroads and non-resident aliens,
individual and corporate, possess a larger area than that of all our
farms between the two seas. The last Democratic administration
reversed the improvident and unwise policy of the Republican party
touching the public domain, and reclaimed from corporations and
syndicates, alien and domestic, and restored to the people nearly
one hundred million (100,000,000) acres of valuable land, to be
sacredly held as homesteads for our citizens, and we pledge
ourselves to continue this policy until every acre of land so
unlawfully held shall be reclaimed and restored to the people.
Obama, Obama, we wanna, we wanna, we wanna, our land!
hold to the use of both gold and silver as the standard money of the
country, and to the coinage of both gold and silver without
discriminating against either metal or charge for mintage, but the
dollar unit of coinage of both metals must be of equal intrinsic and
exchangeable value, or be adjusted through international agreement
or by such safeguards of legislation as shall insure the maintenance
of the parity of the two metals and the equal power of every dollar
at all times in the markets and in the payment of debts; and we
demand that all paper currency shall be kept at par with and
redeemable in such coin.
have some green backs I want to turn into gold, $70 for an ounce of
gold sound good?
insist upon this policy as especially necessary for the protection
of the farmers and laboring classes, the first and most
defenseless victims of unstable money and a fluctuating currency.
am from the "laboring classes " (translation: not a lawyer
like Obama and Hank Johnson), I have some green backs I want to turn
into gold, $70 for an ounce of gold maybe?
heartily approve all legitimate efforts to prevent the United
States from being used as the dumping ground for the known criminals
and professional paupers of Europe; and we demand the rigid
enforcement of the laws against Chinese immigration and the
importation of foreign workmen under contract, to degrade American
labor and lessen its wages; but we condemn and denounce any and
all attempts to restrict the immigration of the industrious and
worthy of foreign lands.
rich, educated, Christian, white. It is the Republicans that are the
racist party though.
are opposed to all sumptuary laws, as an interference with the
individual rights of the citizen.
fixing, regulation, or limiting expenses.
these democrats want you to fire every czar you have hired, start
with the one that thinks trees have human rights, man!
Party Platform of 1896
that the money question is paramount to all others at this time, we
invite attention to the fact that the Federal Constitution named
silver and gold together as the money metals of the United States,
and that the first coinage law passed by Congress under the
Constitution made the silver dollar the monetary unit and admitted
gold to free coinage at a ratio based upon the silver-dollar unit.
declare that the act of 1873 demonetizing silver without the
knowledge or approval of the American people has resulted in the
appreciation of gold and a corresponding fall in the prices of
commodities produced by the people; a heavy increase in the
burdens of taxation and of all debts, public and private; the
enrichment of the money-lending class at home and abroad; the
prostration of industry and impoverishment of the people.
are unalterably opposed to monometallism which has locked fast the
prosperity of an industrial people in the paralysis of hard times.
Gold monometallism is a British policy, and its adoption has brought
other nations into financial servitude to London. It is not only
un-American but anti-American, and it can be fastened on the United
States only by the stifling of that spirit and love of liberty which
proclaimed our political independence in 1776 and won it in the War
of the Revolution.
demand the free and unlimited coinage of both silver and gold at the
present legal ratio of 16 to 1 without waiting for the aid or
consent of any other nation. We demand that the standard silver
dollar shall be a full legal tender, equally with gold, for all
debts, public and private, and we favor such legislation as will
prevent for the future the demonetization of any kind of
legal-tender money by private contract.
are opposed to the policy and practice of surrendering to the
holders of the obligations of the United States the option reserved
by law to the Government of redeeming such obligations in either
silver coin or gold coin.
are opposed to the issuing of interest-bearing bonds of the United
States in time of peace and condemn the trafficking with banking
syndicates, which, in exchange for bonds and at an enormous profit
to themselves, supply the Federal Treasury with gold to maintain the
policy of gold monometallism.
the 1896 democrats don't want you to issue debt bonds to China,
Japan or anyone else. They want you to balance the budget this year.
alone has the power to coin and issue money, and President Jackson
declared that this power could not be delegated to corporations or
individuals. We therefore denounce the issuance of notes intended to
circulate as money by National banks as in derogation of the
Constitution, and we demand that all paper which is made a legal
tender for public and private debts, or which is receivable for dues
to the United States, shall be issued by the Government of the
United States and shall be redeemable in coin.
we want to redeem our paper dollars for silver and gold, can you
hold that the most efficient way of protecting American labor is
to prevent the importation of foreign pauper labor
compete with it in the home market, and that the value of the home
market to our American farmers and artisans is greatly reduced by a
vicious monetary system which depresses the prices of their products
below the cost of production, and thus deprives them of the means of
purchasing the products of our home manufactories; and as labor
creates the wealth of the country, we demand the passage of such
laws as may be necessary to protect it in all its rights.
are in favor of the arbitration of differences between employers
engaged in interstate commerce and their employees, and recommend
such legislation as is necessary to carry out this principle.
denounce the profligate waste of the money wrung from the people by
oppressive taxation and the lavish appropriations of recent
Republican Congresses, which have kept taxes high, while the
labor that pays them is unemployed and the products of the people's
toil are depressed in price till they no longer repay the cost of
production. We demand a return to that simplicity and economy which
befits a Democratic Government, and a reduction in the number of
useless offices, the salaries of which drain the substance of the
takers at $25 an hour?
Interference in Local Affairs
denounce arbitrary interference by Federal authorities in local
affairs as a violation of the Constitution of the United States,
and a crime against free institutions, and we especially object to
government by injunction as a new and highly dangerous form of
oppression by which Federal Judges, in contempt of the laws of
the States and rights of citizens, become at once legislators,
judges and executioners; and we approve the bill passed at the
last session of the United States Senate, and now pending in the
House of Representatives, relative to contempts in Federal courts
and providing for trials by jury in certain cases of contempt.
what this means is the democrats of the 1800s never would have
approved of your "social justice" judges.
declare it to be the unwritten law of this Republic, established by
custom and usage of 100 years, and sanctioned by the examples of the
greatest and wisest of those who founded and have maintained our
Government that no man should be eligible for a third term of the
there you have it.
the democrat's own platform words, I have proved a few things.
- The democrats use to be far right of our current so called "right
wing", so called Republicans. Now the democrats and republicans
are far left of the 1800s democrats, never mind the 1800s
- The democrats were the real racists, the republicans would let
just about anyone in and did not believe in slavery, going by the
democrat's own platforms.
It use to be only the republicans that favored big business. Now
both sides do.
bring corruption to light!
- The democrats still are enslaving blacks. They just do it through
entitlement programs to make them dependent slaves to the government
The democrats still take away the right to bear arms for blacks. Now
they call it "gun control", so it just makes them more
dependent on government "protection" (like a mafia
contract) and are not able to defend or fend for themselves. Perfect
slaves living in crime ridden cesspools of corruption such as New
Orleans, Chicago, DC, etc. sucking off the government teat.
- The progressives have messed up the democrats far worse then the
republicans. Never invite a progressive to a party, total kill joys!
am so glad I am no longer a so called democrat, or a so called
republican, and now I have many more reasons for being happy I voted
for Ross Perot twice!
I love educating the citizenry, thank you for suggesting it, you
were an inspiration to me!
