Could someone explain that first line of the platform.
"Strong families, depending upon God and one another, advance the cause of liberty by lessening the need for government in their daily lives."
That's just weird. Since it's in reference to gay families, isn't it sort of victim-blaming? Like, "we wouldn't have to get the government involved if you would just stop trying to make your sinful sinful families!" It's also a lie that "straight" families (shortcut for one man/one woman) are more successful and therefore need less government intervention, as Heidi said. Also, it ignores the plight of poor, straight families, who actually do sometimes need government help, job creation, career advancement programs and educational opportunities. Such a weird, unrealistic, unscientific fantasy world these people live in. I mean, I agree reality is scary (so I have some sympathy for my conservative brethren), but it's pathological to so consistently pretend things are true when they're not. (As adults, I mean).
Over 30 years old and it still accurately describes the liberal viewpoint. Its intelligence. Its desire to problem-solve. Its empathy. Its inclusiveness.
