The Texas Republican Party Platform


I’ve seen bits and pieces of it on Twitter, but it’s worth looking evil directly in the eye. Heather Cox Richardson put it all in one place. I’m formatting their objectives in bullet points.

  • Rejecting “the certified results of the 2020 Presidential election, and [holding] that acting President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was not legitimately elected by the people of the United States”
  • Requiring students “to learn about the dignity of the preborn human,” including that life begins at fertilization
  • Treating homosexuality as “an abnormal lifestyle choice”
  • Locking the number of Supreme Court justices at 9
  • Getting rid of the constitutional power to levy income taxes
  • Abolishing the Federal Reserve
  • Rejecting the Equal Rights Amendment
  • Returning Christianity to schools and government
  • Ending all gun safety measures
  • Abolishing the Department of Education
  • Arming teachers
  • Requiring colleges to teach “free-market liberty principles”
  • Defending capital punishment
  • Dictating the ways in which the events at the Alamo are remembered
  • Protecting Confederate monuments
  • Ending gay marriage
  • Withdrawing from the United Nations and the World Health Organization
  • Calling for a vote “for the people of Texas to determine whether or not the State of Texas should reassert its status as an independent nation.”

As usual, Cox Richardson’s whole article is worth reading, including some thoughts on Judge Michael Luttig’s testimony to the January 6 Committee.
