Reverting Cjconst's edits[edit]

Here is why I have revrted Cjconst's edits:

  1. The "History of Democratic Leadership" section is about the U.S. Democratic Party, which is linked int he first sentence of the article; it says nothing about the Kentucky Democratic Party. Any reader who wants to know= more about the background of the US party can follow the link. Also, there are linking errors and capitalization errors.
  1. The biographies of Steve Beshear and Dan Mongiardo belong in the articles about them, not in the Kentucky Democratic Party article.
  1. The "Health Care" section violate WP:NPOV. Sentences like "This is the reason why President Obama and the Democratic Party of America’s plans have been so instrumental in the attempt to close the major deficiencies in Kentucky’s current health coverage. " and "This has been the biggest step forward since President Johnson signed Medicare into law in 1965." are clearly presenting one point of view. The rest of the section explains why the Affordable Care Act is such a darn good thing. I think it is too, but that is my opinion, and my opinion is not appropriate for an encyclopaedia article.

Wikipedia:Neutral point of view:

"Editing from a neutral point of view (NPOV) means representing fairly, proportionately, and as far as possible without bias, all significant views that have been published by reliable sources. All Wikipedia articles and other encyclopedic content must be written from a neutral point of view. NPOV is a fundamental principle of Wikipedia and of other Wikimedia projects. This policy is non-negotiable and all editors and articles must follow it."

Also, these sections violate the Wikipedia:Manual of Style with regard to the capitalization of headings and the formatting of dates. There is also random capitalization of words that need not be capitalized, like "investments", "health care" and "citizen". Ground Zero | t 11:27, 8 November 2011 (UTC)
