This time, Texas Republicans released their 2012 political platform and it gives Iowa Republicans who proposed banning pornography a run for their money when it comes to crazy. To begin with, Texas Republicans propose eliminating the national income tax – replacing it with a sales tax that hits working Americans a lot harder than the very wealthy.
It supports returning to the gold standard, despite most economists arguing that the gold standard who destroy our economy. It calls for privatizing Social Security, which Congressman Paul Ryan is already trying to do in Congress. And Texas Republicans want to ban multi-cultural teaching in our schools, while bringing back corporal punishment in the classroom. Plus, there are a whole slew of commonplace Republican demands like eliminating the EPA, banning abortion, and the repeal of the Voting Rights Act.
In other words, Texas Republicans want to take American back to the 1800’s. And don’t think for a second that Mitt Romney isn’t on board to do the same thing.
