The Republican platform is so extreme Adolf Hitler would have been proud. Here are a few highlights courtesy of ThinkProgress.
Paul Ryan and Rick Santorum, along with the not-so-christian right get their wish: No abortions in cases of rape or incest, because you know they were probably asking for it anyway. Additionally, the platform has language that would ban post-pregnancy drugs.
The GOP has decided to officially praise “informed consent laws” that create barriers to discourage women from having abortions. What’s next? A big letter “A” stitched into the clothing of women seeking an abortion?
The not-so-christian right has managed to insert extreme language regarding same-sex couples into the GOP platform. It’s bad enough these dirty fags want to have equal rights regarding marriage, but gosh dang it, now they want legal civil unions. Evil.
No new taxes. In fact the platform calls for an amendment to the Constitution requiring a super-majority to approve any tax increase, unless of course, we go to war. Corporate interests who have taken over the GOP come out ahead on both counts. No taxes mean increased profits and, of course, nothing says “boom times” like a good old-fashioned war.
There is so much more, but so little time. Vote this November for an America that does not stigmatize its citizens.
One last burst of humor. Best comment ever on the “homosexual agenda.”
“I asked a friend if I could have a copy of the homosexual agenda, but he told me he wasn’t allowed to share it with straight people. He did mention that after he recruits a certain number of people he gets his choice of a blender or a toaster.”
