Limiting war powers of a potus sounds good.

Limiting power of police unions, also good.

You know my stance on abortion. Its probably at odds with these guys.

Definitely audit the Fed. Why is that controversial?

IDK, about the UN child's rights shtick. But generally I oppose UN treaties with exceptions to nuclear reductions and such.

Hands off my porno.

Energy policy-Im ok with largely free market. But forced redundancy should be implemented.

Replace the VA with what?

Until gas is under $3/Gallon and hamburgers dont cost $15 , dems wont win andntgese guys will.get away with some extreme nonsense.
Mon Jun 20 16:44:20
Republicans know they can run whatever the fuck they want because swing voters are annoyed with gas prices and inflation right now.
Mon Jun 20 18:32:53
I assume that IBTY's intent was to post the one about homosexuality. And yeah, that one is dumb.

But then I scroll up to #146, and I remember that the GOP is still by far the saner party in the aggregate.

65. State Sovereignty: Pursuant to Article 1, Section 1, of the Texas Constitution, the federal government has impaired our right of local self-government. Therefore, federally mandated legislation that infringes upon the 10th Amendment rights of Texas should be ignored, opposed, refused, and nullified. Texas retains the right to secede from the United States should a future president and congress change our political system from a constitutional republic to any other system.

I say we make that decision for them. :o)

It's been a running argument about secession legality. Especially in Texas. Seb will disagree.

All in all the platform isn't that bad.
Mon Jun 20 23:16:06

I'm not interested in a debate. They win. They are free!

How about putting a limit on how many times Texas can receive FEMA funds for the same flood plains.
Tue Jun 21 04:59:18
FEMA is dumb. I get that shit happens sometimes, but like you point out most are known, and yet they don't spend shit on preventing damage.

Tue Jun 21 07:37:08
If it weren't for all the FEMA funds that Texas gets annually they would leave the Union.
Tue Jun 21 09:30:07

Texas doesn't leave the union because if it did they'd have to start taxing their residents, and they don't like paying taxes.

The Texas GOP gets to blame all the big spending on the federal government. If they went their own way, they would still need a large military and social spending, but they'd have no one to point their finger at other than themselves.

Tue Jun 21 11:22:40
Texas would conquer Mexico and call it Texaco.Then force English as the only language spoken in school.

In the year 2000....
Tue Jun 21 11:26:41
