The Republican Party's radical 2012 platform

The Republicans National Convention is less than a week away, but the Party has been hard at work drafting its official 2012 platform – and no surprise here, it’s the most radically right-wing platform in modern history.

Police defended their actions, saying non-lethal force like water cannons and tear gas was used first, but after miners wielding machetes rushed a police li
