I'll be quoting direct lines, I'm going to be spacing between quotes, and my responses. This is going to be very, very long.

"6) Self-sufficient families, founded on the traditional marriage of a natural man and a natural woman."

in other words against gay marriage.

"We support the defunding of “climate justice” initiatives, the abolition of the Environmental Protection Agency, and repeal of the Endangered Species Act."

So in other words, they don't want people to have clean drinking water, don't want any limits on companies polluting water ways, don't want any interference for endangered species. Well they already got part of that due to the supreme court

"Carbon Tax: We oppose all efforts to classify carbon dioxide as a pollutant. We further urge the US Senate to defeat the “Cap-and-Trade” legislation, as it is outside the authority of the US Constitution."

So in other words "We want to give more money to oil and gas giants"

"We oppose any distribution of taxpayer dollars to unions."

Anti union

"We believe the Minimum Wage Act should be repealed."

No minimum wage, have fun being paid astronomically like shit.

"We support the immediate repeal of Dodd-Frank legislation."

Oh, soo... the legistlation that is preventing another 2008?
That's cool. It is defined as the following:
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act is a series of federal regulations passed to prevent future financial crises.
So that's cool, they want the reckless investing happening again, because capitalism can't do anything bad.

"We oppose all efforts to further regulate the internet in the United States or internationally."

Ah of course, so you want your ISP to throttle or limit what you can see right? Not like we already don't get a choice in our internet providers.

"The Republican Party of Texas calls on our Congressional Delegation to push for reform of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act to limit the ability of online social media platforms to censor the speech of citizens in the new digital town square which they currently control."

So... you want Nazi's and pedos to be on the internet? Because uh, that's what moderators have to do. Along with you know, straight up racism? Do we want another 4chan?

"The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact is a direct violation of Article 1,
Section 10, and Article 2, Section 1, of the Constitution and shall be rejected by Texas and all its officials.
We support the electoral college."

So in other words, both they don't support doing a popular vote, and continue to support a broken electoral collage system that can be gerrymandered for their own use.

"We support the right to recall our elected officials."
.... WHAT. Oh so in other words: we support the right to overwrite the will of the people, but now even more brazenly by removing electors and putting in ones we like

"We support a constitutional amendment making English the official language of the United States, and one of no more than two official languages of all US territories and other possessions."
This is just straight up racist. No like actually. We have multiple different races here. I've seen people speak in Japanese, Chinese, and Spanish. Considering that Texas's neighbor is Mexico. I have a strong suspicion this is to get at those "dirty folk"

"We support legislation ensuring that the parents' rights to raise and educate their children are protected in Texas law as a fundamental, constitutional right and that there is a presumption that fit parents act in the best interest of their children."

Considering that those parent's have been about banning the word gay out of existence, and LGBTQ people. Yeah I don't see that ending well.

"We urge the complete repeal of the hate crimes laws, since ample laws are currently in effect to punish criminal behavior towards other persons."

Oh so in other words, you want to not stop... racism... yikes. Because ample laws are definitely not in place.

"Since education is not an enumerated power of the federal government, we believe the Department of Education should be abolished, and the transfer of any of its functions to any other federal agency should be prohibited."

.... wow. I don't think I need to explain why we need a educated populous to make sound decisions.

"We urge school administrators and officials not to infringe on Texas school students’ and staffs’ rights to pray and engage in religious speech, individually or in groups, on school property without government interference. We urge the Legislature to end censorship of discussion of religion in our founding documents and encourage discussing those documents, including the Bible as their basis. Students have the right to exhibit religious items on school property."

And this one is painfully loaded. The biggest problem with this statement, is that teachers are NOT allowed to express religion, specifically if they are a public school teacher, and as such, part of the government. Because the government itself is not allowed to cross the boundaries between church and state. Doing so would mean the government is supporting a religion.

"We support objective teaching of scientific theories, such as life origins and
climate change. These shall be taught as challengeable scientific theories subject to change as new data
is produced. Teachers and students shall discuss the strengths and weaknesses of these theories
openly, without fear of retribution or discrimination of any kind."

Are you... are you kidding me. "Challangable"
Really. Boy I can sure challenge climate change, and say it doesn't exist, and everyone gets to say that I'm right. Even though it does exist, and I would be factually wrong to say that. The planet is abnormally heating due to CO2 emissions, there is a strong increase in CO2 past the normal line as the earth has never passed a certain amount of CO2 levels.

"We reject Critical Race Theory as a post-Marxist ideology that seeks to undermine the system of law and order itself and to reduce individualsto their group identity alone. We support legislation to remove this ideology from government programs,
including education involving race, discrimination, and racial awareness. To facilitate the appreciation of
our American identity
, the contrast between freedom and the tyrannical history of socialism/communism
throughout history must be taught. Students shall pledge allegiance to the United States and Texas flags
daily to instill patriotism.
Students have the right to display patriotic items on school property. Schools
should have the options to display the National Motto “In God We Trust.”

...... So in other words, you support removing education of slavery... boy does that fit with the whole proposal to soften slavery. And that you want children to be obedient entirely to their country, without asking a single question. "Facilitate the appreciation" alone wants to make me barf. Do you not realize Hitler did the exact fucking same thing? teaching the generations under him that the country their in is entirely infallible. And then then go talk about "tyrannical history of socialism/communism" even though Britain had several colonies and capitalist.
Nazi Germany was state capitalist. In the sense that Hitler allowed your business to exist if it helped his goals, and you to profit on it. We literately did manifest destiny, because land=money. And kicked out the natives of their own lands for essentially fucking profit. We literately fucking installed a dictatorship into Cuba, actively supporting it, and it took a revolt to throw us out, and we did it because we didn't want Cuba going socialist. overthrowing their democratic system in the process. And one of the major reasons the Cuban missile crisis happened FFS.

"We demand the State Legislature pass a law prohibiting the teaching of sex education, sexual health, or sexual choice or identity in any public school in any grade whatsoever, or disseminating or permitting the dissemination by any party of any material regarding the same. All school districts, individual schools, or charter schools are prohibited from contracting with or making any payment to any third party for material concerning any of the above topics. Until this prohibition goes into
effect, sexual education shall only utilize sexual risk avoidance programs and promote abstinence outside
of marriage. Before a student may be provided with human sexuality or family planning instruction, the
district must obtain the written consent of the student’s parent or guardian [Opt-In status]."

So straight up more anti LGBTQ. Since they even say "sexual choice or identity" So anything out of the being heterosexual, will not be discussed or taught. And nor do they want to teach about how condoms or birth control works, while also banning abortions. They even say " utilize sexual risk avoidance programs and promote abstinence outside of marriage" which is absurd.

"Identity: The official position of the Texas schools shall be that there are only two genders:
biological male and biological female. We oppose transgender normalizing curriculum and pronoun use."

oh hey, more erasing of trans people from existence.

"United Nations: The United Nations is a detriment to the sovereignty of the United States and other
countries, and because of this we support:
a. Our withdrawal from the current United Nations.
b. The removal of the United Nations from United States soil.
c. The rejection of all Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 policies and programs"

Agenda 21 is a non binding action plan to be more sustainable so we don't end up fucking ourselves. and Agenda 2030 is more sustainable development, and in hopes maybe ending poverty too. So in other words, they want people to still be in
poverty, and for us to recklessly abuse the planet!

"We believe there should be no granting of special legal entitlements or creation of special status for homosexual behavior, regardless of state of origin, and we oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality out of faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values. No one should be granted special legal status based on their LGBTQ+ identification."

In other words, they support people being homophobic or trans-phobic if their religion allows it, and you can't sue over that.

"c. Abortion is not healthcare."

So when saving the mother from death via getting an abortion, your health insurance won't cover that.

"The Republican Party of Texas opposes medication of the drinking water supply of the state of Texas, including but not limited to fluoridation."

So in other words, you want teeth to rot faster and easier, the reason we did it was for the general public health. I'm sure the dental industry will be happy with that choice with their new found profits.

"
We support Medicaid block grants to the states and returning Medicaid to its
original purpose to be a temporary assistance. We oppose any further expansion of Medicaid."
In otherwords, we don't want public healthcare, because private healthcare makes us money.

"We support appropriate limits on the length of time to receive Social
Security disability benefits for all but those truly not able to do ANY kind of paid employment."

Oh so... anti disabled. Wow that fits so well with the one before it.

"We support legislation such as the Preborn Non-Discrimination Act (Pre-
NDA) to close existing discriminatory loopholes that fail to protect preborn children suspected of having a "fetal anomaly" or disability,"
Great on paper, until you realize that there will be people who may not be able to hold any job. So your now forcing them to exist, and suffer simultaneously. What a GREAT combination.

"VA: We support replacing the Veterans Administration with a commercial insurance
plan that allows eligible veterans to obtain health services from any licensed provider."
So you want war vets... to be price gouged like the rest of us. What a great service!

"Pornography Crisis: The State of Texas shall recognize that pornography is a public health crisis."

Oh so the obesity crisis, the climate crisis, the mental health crisis, the poverty crisis, the housing crisis, and homeless crisis are all not that important. But sex! Now sex is a sin. What a great and totally not stupid focus. Let's not fix homelessness, or obesity, instead, you should focus on how there's too much fucking and not enough birthing.

"We oppose gender norming in the military. Transgendered persons
should not serve in the military as a special class; no special considerations or medical treatment shall be
required or offered."

Trans people getting kicked down the stairs even further.

"We believe all historical war memorials, including Confederate monuments,
in Texas shall be protected from future removal or defacement and that those monuments that have been
removed should be restored to their historical locations."

Maybe having confederate monuments still out and about, tells everyone that you still support slavery, and that maybe, just maybe, those people don't deserve to have monuments? Crazy thought.

"Gender Identity Facilities in Businesses: We support enacting legislation in the State of Texas
ensuring that:
a. No government entity in the state shall be allowed to take it upon itself to define for any
private business or private entity how it must segregate its restrooms, changing facilities, or
showers."

Kicking down trans people... again.

"Homosexual Behavior: We affirm God’s biblical design for marriage and sexual behavior between
one biological man and one biological woman, which has proven to be the foundation for all great nations
in Western civilization. We oppose homosexual marriage, regardless of state of origin."

More homophobia.

"We urge the Texas Legislature to pass religious liberty protections for individuals, businesses, and government
officials who believe marriage is between one man and one woman. We oppose the granting of special
legal entitlements or creation of special status for LGBTQ+ behavior, regardless of state of origin. We
oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality out of faith, conviction, or
belief in traditional values."

Even more kicking down trans and gay people, HOW NICE. Oh and gotta say it again that it's okay to be homophobic. Let's repeat that last sentence"oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality out of faith, conviction"
So in other words if my faith said that gay people should be idk... the devil, and I say... idk. Kill them. I won't receive any criminal penalties if my religion says it was the right thing to do.

"We believe the Obergefell v. Hodges decision, overturning the Texas law prohibiting same-sex marriage in Texas, has no basis in the Constitution and should be reversed, returning jurisdiction over the definition of marriage to the states. The Governor and other elected officials of the State of Texas should assert our Tenth Amendment right and reject the Supreme Court ruling."

Oh hey, kicking gay and trans people again! not like you already been doing this non stop.

So... Now that I went through all of this. This is a pretty obvious reason why I absolutely hate the Republican party.

with the exception of gay marriage, all of these things sound fantasic!
So your fine with:
"We oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality out of faith, conviction"
Which means killing a gay person because your religion said so would get a pass
Pornography Crisis: The State of Texas shall recognize that pornography is a public health crisis
You would accept that Pornography in general is a crisis, instead of focusing on climate change, or focusing on the obesity crisis, or homelessness.
"Carbon Tax: We oppose all efforts to classify carbon dioxide as a pollutant. We further urge the US Senate to defeat the “Cap-and-Trade” legislation, as it is outside the authority of the US Constitution."
your in favor of them not classifying carbon dioxide as a pollutant, even though that's a major reason climate change is happening due to increase CO2 emissions. Nor the fact multiple studies have linked high C02 with issues such as asthma.

"VA: We support replacing the Veterans Administration with a commercial insurance
plan that allows eligible veterans to obtain health services from any licensed provider."
You support Veterans getting price gouged by normal commercial insurance companies, instead of having their own better network. What a great way to support Vets, by making their lives even more miserable.



At this point, I'm hoping you just skimmed, and didn't bother doing a throughout read. Because those things, is just the start.

I laughed hard!!!

Also:

"United Nations: The United Nations is a detriment to the sovereignty of the United States and other
countries, and because of this we support:
a. Our withdrawal from the current United Nations.
b. The removal of the United Nations from United States soil.
c. The rejection of all Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 policies and programs"

Please do that USA, the whole world would enjoy supplying your international customers instead of you

Texas/Republicans being a parody of itself, the terrifying part though is they genuinely believe it and have power in this system.

well im not sure where you got killing anyone from, but hey, alot of religions from protected classes aren't big fans of gays, and we have to be fair to them. Don't look at me for the obesity climate or homelessness, talk to california. Also talk to the liberal oganzations that gouge vets.

In other words, you would not be receive any criminal penalties to kill a gay person as long as your faith told you to do so. , so I'll repeat are you fine with that? Failing to answer with a redirection or nothing response will result me into believe that you believe so.
but hey, alot of religions from protected classes aren't big fans of gays, and we have to be fair to them.
Are you trying to argue that you don't want to be fair to them?

Don't look at me for the obesity climate or homelessness, talk to california.
No, I'll pass on the "look at califorina" since that's not the point of my question,
You would accept that Pornography in general is a crisis, instead of focusing on climate change, or focusing on the obesity crisis, or homelessness.
it's a simple yes no. If you try changing the goal post again, I'm going to believe you think that Pornography, is a Bigger issue than climate change, homelessness, or obesity.
Also talk to the liberal oganzations that gouge vets.
I'm sorry I don't do strawmans, answer my original question
"VA: We support replacing the Veterans Administration with a commercial insurance
plan that allows eligible veterans to obtain health services from any licensed provider."
do you support Replacing the Vetrans administration, with giant comercial healthcare companies. Who we all know continue to price gouge us to this day? Failure to respond to this answer with yes or no, will result in me believing you are fine with this. That you believe veterans should get worse care, and be price gouged by this decision.

These are very easy, very simple questions. If you cannot honestly answer this questions, then you are aruging in bad faith.
your in favor of them not classifying carbon dioxide as a pollutant, even though that's a major reason climate change is happening due to increase CO2 emissions. Nor the fact multiple studies have linked high C02 with issues such as asthma.
You also didn't answer this either. I should of phrased it as a question. So i'll do so now. Do you support not classifying carbon dioxide as a pollutant, even though it's one of the major causes of climate change, and it has several links to causing asthma.

OP - You seem triggered about Republicans, you should probably switch parties to Republican as the Dems are going down, they are also wrecking the USA. Only the Rebublicans can save you now. Bring on the RED wave.

Maybe because a good bulk of their policies are completely asinine.
If anything Republicans are more triggered by the existence of someone who doesn't conform to their existence given how much of a hate boner they got for gay and trans people that they want to do everything they can to make their lives miserable.
And that maybe it's not humane to treat them like shit? Just a crazy thought there.

What the hell are you talking about - where does the gays come into this post, that stuff is just in your own demented head and bears no resemblence to reality? Next you'll be claiming the Nazi party from the 1940's is back and there's Nazi's hiding out in congress.

Do you want me to start telling you all the policies the dems have implemented that's making people poor, and how they armed the Taliban, Abandoned their allies, Opened the borders for everyone, Have nearly caused WW3 to start, are racists towards white people, are devaluing women, are corrupting the youth, are letting criminals walk free, etc....

well you are welcome to assume anything you'd like about me, your opinion is genuinely worthless to me, but for the record, i don't support killing anyone, however, many democrats do, and this action is already happening under democrat supervision, so you not responding will make me assume you do.

Someone must of not read anything I said.
We oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality out of faith, conviction"

"6) Self-sufficient families, founded on the traditional marriage of a natural man and a natural woman."

We demand the State Legislature pass a law prohibiting the teaching of sex education, sexual health, or sexual choice or identity in any public school in any grade whatsoever,

"We oppose homosexual marriage, regardless of state of origin"
I'll give you a couple seconds before I end up cooking the rest of your points

don't support killing anyone
That is not my original question. Nor did you answer any of other statements I asked. I told you that I would assume based if you avoided the questions I asked. And in this you did again. I never asked if you were in support of killing anyone. I specifically asked if you were in support of
other words, you would not be receive any criminal penalties to kill a gay person as long as your faith told you to do so. , so I'll repeat are you fine with that?
You still have not answered my question in good faith.

And as such, I don't have any reason to continue this discussion with you.

I read what you wrote and found it to be the ramblings of a mad man. You seem to harbor a lot of hate inside for anyone that doesn't support your world views. You especially seem to hate Republicans and anyone that doesn't agree with deviant behavior.

There are places in the world where someone with your views would be executed, so don't expect everyone to think some of the perverse things you believe in are acceptable to all - they aren't, get over it.

Alright, I'll play ball.

"we oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality out of faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values."
What does this sentence mean? This is directly pulled from https://texasgop.org/platform/

I'll give you one response. If I am supposedly a mad man, then you should be able to interpret the meaning of this differently without sound stupid.

I don't take orders from you, how's that for a response?
I read what you wrote and found it to be the ramblings of a mad man.
I gave you a chance to disprove me with a single sentence they said. I'll give you another shot. This time I'll be extra generous and provide no response limit.
"The Republican Party of Texas opposes medication of the drinking water supply of the state of Texas, including but not limited to fluoridation."
What does this mean?
And again
"we oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality out of faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values."
And what does this mean?

If I am truly a mad man, you should be able to easily disprove it through giving an alternative, logical explanation as to what these statements mean.
I am giving you the chance to prove me wrong, by putting your money where your mouth is.
