EAGLE FORUM
— Party Platforms Matter
https://eagleforum.org/publications/focus/elections-101.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: What is happening to our country? American ValuesIf there ever were a time to go into the voting booth with eyes wide open, November 3 of 2020 is that time. The past few months have been an unfolding drama of lawlessness in the streets, anti-American curricula planned for the schools, and overt attacks on foundational beliefs that most Americans hold dear. The upheaval has been swift and destructive, leading many to wonder how anyone either in or seeking an elected leadership position would not speak out forcefully against the carnage. Some Democrat leaders of the affected cities have either actively called on the police to stand down, or they have decided not to publicly condemn the burning, looting, and murdering in their cities. Many Republicans, on the other hand, have called for a return to law and order, expressing concern not only for residents and business owners but also for the first responders who are risking their lives trying to help injured people and protect property. Are these dichotomous responses indicative of the philosophies of these leaders’ political parties, or are they simply personal views that have nothing to do with party affiliation? A comparison of the Republican and Democrat party platforms can provide much-needed information about the worldviews and intentions of current leaders and those who might be elected on November 3. What is a party platform? Political party platforms are official declarations of the principles, policy stances, and action items of the parties. Every four years, political parties gather for their national conventions where they nominate their presidential and vice-presidential candidates. They also write their platforms, the documents that outline where they stand on specific issues and what they intend to do on those issues if their candidates are elected. The differences in 2020 are stark. Republican – Democrat  If one were to judge the 2020 Republican and Democrat platforms simply by tone, even a cursory review of both would yield important insights into each party’s opinions of the country and its issues. The Democrat Party platform outlines what many might consider to be extremist views of this country – that it is irredeemably racist, that people who were instrumental in the founding and early leadership of the country are unworthy of respect or remembrance, and that the government should take over huge areas of its citizens’ lives. Law enforcement must be overhauled, and white supremacy and nationalism are ingrained sins that must be overcome. The Republican Party platform, on the other hand, begins with a dedication page to those who protect the country and its citizens: We dedicate this platform with admiration and gratitude to all who stand strong in the face of danger so that the American people may be protected against it – The men and women of our military, of our law enforcement, and the first responders of every community in our land – And to their families.)

— A Lesson From Trump Taxes: an Underfunded IRS Is Outmatched The IRS has tended to pursue taxpayers of modest means more aggressively than they have high-powered businesspeople – Marcy Gordon and Paul Wiseman (DIERSEN: Virtually all, if not all IRS employees are Democrats. I worked for IRS for almost 9 years 1971-1980, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $85,084-$96,431/year. I worked for GAO on audits of IRS’s Criminal Investigation Division for 3 years at the GS-13 Step-1-3 levels, currently $101,176-$107,922/year. Democrats use tax return information to destroy Republicans. In 1978, the Democrats at Money Magazine and the Democrats at IRS used my tax returns to hint/imply/argue/shout that my education deductions were improper and should be disallowed. They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the graduate business courses that I had taken at Loyola 1972-1976 and the graduate accounting courses that I had taken at DePaul 1976-1977 a) were not job-related, b) did not help me carry out my job duties, c) were taken by me to qualify me for a “new trade or business,” d) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and e) were a distraction. To get rid of me, my Democrat IRS superiors had me “under investigation” 1974-1977. SEE GAO DECISION: http://www.gao.gov/products/463866 During the 1970s, IRS purposely kept its definition of “commuting area” vague so that it could use it to punish or to reward its employees. When my IRS Democrat superiors succeeded in getting rid of the IRS manager who had promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974, they used an extremely broad definition of “commuting area” for its downtown Chicago office to disallow my partial day per diem claims. They hinted/implied/argued that my partial day per diem claims were fraudulent. Needless-to-say, that ended my IRS career. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, a minority, a female, or a veteran.)

— Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mark Curran said he didn’t like Trump’s debate tone but is still ‘all in’: “He probably doesn’t need my advice, and what I know about him is he’s not going to take my advice — we’re different people,” the GOP candidate, who’s facing Democratic incumbent U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, tells The Spin. But he’d probably advise him to tone it down. Curran, who says he’s “all in” for Trump, said he thinks of his late mother and conservative seniors still living who are watching this and “want to see manners, they don’t like the interrupting.” Asked about the president’s decision not to denounce white supremacists and his comments from the podium for the extremist group Proud Boys to “stand down and stand by,” Curran said he didn’t know what that meant. “I think the majority of people that are conservative want nothing to do with that kind of organization. And really, I’m Catholic, so it’s not really a conservative or liberal thing. We (the church and its members) would never approve of people that act that way.” – LISA DONOVAN

(FROM THE ARTICLE: #49. Illinois Total Illinois presidential campaign donations: $14.2 million (#6 highest among states) Presidential campaign donations per capita: $1.12 Donations to Donald Trump: $7 million (49.7% of all donations) Donations to Joe Biden: $7.1 million (50.3% of all donations) State fundraising advantage: Joe Biden (+$73,000) Despite being ahead in donations by only a small margin in Illinois, Biden shouldn’t have too hard a time competing there—the state voted for a Democrat in the past seven presidential contests in a row. With 20 electoral votes, it’s the biggest prize in the Midwest.)
