Everything's Bigger in Texas, even Crazy

This article was brought to my attention by our intrepid morning reporter Jeff Stoecker.  Apparently, the Texas Republican Party has adopted platform in which all its candidates will stand.  Here is a link to the PDF file that has all 26 pages and is chock-full of cuckoo-ness.

Now I know that Texas has always thought of themselves as a sovereign state that graces the United States with its’ presence.  I even get that it is full of a bunch of religious freaks zealots.  I’m always a little leery of large gathering under tents that always result in a man walking miraculously. 

Some of the provisions in their party platform make sense, I actually nodded my head over a few.  Then, without any warning, they jus turn hard and go head-long over the cliff of rational thinking.  I still don’t get how anyone in their right mind (maybe that is the problem) can still think that gay marriage is the cornerstone to the downfall of our society.  They actually want a felony charge brought against anyone who issues a marriage license or performs a civil service for a gay couple.  They argue against big government on one hand but want to ban what kind of relationship people are in on the other.  Not only that, they want to legislate what people do in the privacy of their own homes.  Can’t have it both ways there Lone Star Lammo’s.

If you got some time, give all 26 pages a good read.  Like I said there are some decent thoughts in there.  The problem is that the whacked-out ideas are so out-there that it is tough to take the rest as serious.

I’m just thankful, no matter what issues the CT Gov’t has, that they aren’t as backwoods as these fools in Texas.

    I started but ran out of time. It looks like a manifesto that’s loaded with contradictions.
