What do Republicans want?

By Ed 

I am passing along some information that would stir up a lot of potential voters if they had these facts regarding the Texas Republican platform. If you would like for me to fax you the entire platform I would be happy to do so. Items of interest in the platform:
• The minimum wage law should be repealed and wages be determined by the free market (page 18).
• Abolish Internal Revenue Service and eliminate personal income tax, inheritance tax, gift tax, capital gains tax, corporate income tax, and payroll tax. These taxes would be replaced with a national retail sales tax (page 19).
• Evict United Nations from the United States and eliminate any further participation.
• Abolish the following national offices: Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms; Surgeon General; Environmental Protection Agency; Department of Energy; Housing and Urban Development; Health and Human Services; Education; Commerce; Labor; National Endowment for the Arts and the Public Broadcasting System.
• Repeal government sponsored programs of early childhood development ages 0-5 including pre-school and kindergarten (page 16).
• Reject the establishment of any mechanism to process, license, record, register or monitor ownership of guns (page 7).
• Oppose the Endangered Species Act (page 4).
• Repeal Robin Hood (page 15).
• Repeal Hate Crime Law (page 8).

Note: post a comment if you want the full platform and I'll put you in touch with Ed. Sue. W.
