2020 Platform Comparison

Hearing a lot of complaints that the republicans don’t have a new platform for 2020. They are using the 2016 platform, cited reason the 'Rona.

So what’s new on the dem platform?



Except you left out Riots & Socialism

Can’t figure out an “R” for it.

How did Covid keep the GOP from writing a platform?

No, but I added Riots in edit, LOL

Here is the real democratic platform so you guys don’t have to wonder. You can just read it.


I’m not a republican, so I don’t know. You’re not, so why do you care?

Nothing wrong with the 2016 platform, it was gining right along. I would have liked to see something about decoupling from Chi-NA.

I read somewhere the President wanted a new one.

Cool! Thanks.

So nothing new?

It’s definitely not what you listed in your OP. So glad this thread exists!

I think it’s a relevant question to ask the party asking us to vote for them to run our government. If they can’t even write a platform what does that say about their ability to get things done?

BTW, why start a thread like this, when in two seconds you could see the actual D. platform, and perhaps discuss it? Instead we have a thread where people get their jollies making up things in teh platform and laughing at those pretend things. Seems trollish.


Oh yes it is. I didn’t get them all, but mine are in there.

We will give hate no safe harbor. We will never amplify or legitimize the voices of racism,
misogyny, anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim bigotry, or white supremacy.

I love this! The Squad minus the anti-Semitism, which they do “amplify”.

The GOP isn’t asking you to vote for them.

It was suggested to me and I wanted to. If you don’t like it, you’re free to move along.

Here’s the GOP Platform

GOP Platform

From the GOP

We envision
government at all
levels as a partner
with individuals
and industries
in technological
progress, not a
meddlesome monitor


Tell you guys what, let’s play a Platform Game.

One dem pick out a platform plank and paste it.

Then if there’s a corresponding repub plank, somebody paste it.

And we can discuss. If there’s not one corresponding, we can discuss why not.

Who’s game? Pick out your favorite from your party or one you hate from the other.

I’ll start:

From the Dems p.9

We must also expand funding so state and local public health departments can hire sufficient
staff to conduct contact tracing for everyone who tests positive for the novel coronavirus. Only
through widespread, regular testing and tracing can we hope to understand the scope of the
pandemic and contain it.

No national contact tracing? The states are supposed to do it? Contrary to the sky screaming. Already being done.

From the GOP p. 10

The Judiciary
The rule of law is the foundation of our Republic.
A critical threat to our country’s constitutional order
is an activist judiciary that usurps powers properly
reserved to the people through other branches
of government. Only a Republican president
will appoint judges who respect the rule of law
expressed within the Constitution and Declaration
of Independence, including the inalienable right
to life and the laws of nature and nature’s God, as
did the late Justice Antonin Scalia. We are facing a
national crisis in our judiciary. We understand that
only by electing a Republican president in 2016 will
America have the opportunity for up to five new
constitutionally-minded Supreme Court justices
appointed to fill vacancies on the Court. Only such
appointments will enable courts to begin to reverse
the long line of activist decisions — including
Roe, Obergefell, and the Obamacare cases — that
have usurped Congress’s and states’ lawmaking
authority, undermined constitutional protections,
expanded the power of the judiciary at the expense
of the people and their elected representatives,
and stripped the people of their power to govern
themselves. We believe in the constitutional checks
and balances and that the Founders intended the
judiciary to be the weakest branch. We encourage
Congress to use the check of impeachment for
judges who unconstitutionally usurp Article I
powers. In tandem with a Republican Senate, a
new Republican president will restore to the Court
a strong conservative majority that will follow the
text and original meaning of the Constitution and
our laws.
The legitimate powers of government are
rooted in the consent of the American people.
Judicial activism that includes reliance on foreign
law or unratified treaties undermines American
sovereignty. Foreign laws and precedents should
not be used to interpret our Constitution or laws,
nor should foreign sources of law be used in state
courts’ adjudication of criminal or civil matters.
We also affirm the wisdom of President
George Washington’s warning to avoid foreign
entanglements and unnecessary alliances. We
therefore oppose the adoption or ratification of
treaties that would weaken or encroach upon
American sovereignty or that could be construed
by courts to do so. We will not recognize as binding
upon the United States any international agree-
ment forged without the constitutionally required
assent of two-thirds of the United States Senate.

Like it.
