  • Most of it pretty much turns my stomach. Let's have a platform built on hate and discrimination. Hooray!

  • here is a link from the actual source:


    https://www.1888932-2946.ws/TexasGOP/E-ContentStrategy/userfiles/2010_RPT_PLATFORM.pdf


    I don't agree with all of it, but I do agree with some of what I read.  Not so much about the sexuality part (starts on pg. 6).    After reading the articles from other sources I was a bit bothered, but after reading the pdf, I have to say, it's not that far off of what they normally use as a platform.  I don't see what the big deal is.

  • Well, I'm not getting into some parts of it, I don't live there, and I really don't want to get into those subjects. However, there are parts that I would LOOOVE to see as law, such as, ending the lottery (the schools don't get that much in the end), restrict citizenship to children born in the United States whose parents are citizens (this really does make sense to me), legalize corporal punishment in public schools; mandate that evolution and global warming be "taught as challengeable scientific theory"; and (THIS is the absolute BEST PART OF ALL!!) demand that Congress evict the United Nations from U.S. soil and end American membership in the global body. So, like most of all the races, there are parts I agree with and parts I don't so much.... Maybe they could just start with that last one, and go from there? We really need to get rid of the UN... like NOW!!!!!
