The Democratic platform is better than the GOP platform, but it’s not perfect

When Republicans gathered in Cleveland last week, they adopted a platform opposing broad changes in American society and ignoring massive issues facing the country. The platform, the Democrats adopted in Philadelphia this week is more mainstream and realistic, although as a governing strategy, it too would leave some major problems unaddressed and make others worse.

The Republicans embraced an agenda hostile to gays and lesbians, hard-line on immigration, opposed to rudimentary gun safety laws and skeptical about the threat of climate change. They claimed to stand for budget responsibility but endorsed tax cuts that would exacerbate the nation’s fiscal predicament.
