Instead, the current administration and the Democratic Party, demonstrated through floor votes and party platforms, has evidenced a disinterest in defending constitutional liberties of United States citizens.
Many conservatives were up in arms over a possible attempt to remove “God” from the Democratic Platform. As it turns out, the Democrats also removed the individual.
