Thoughts from a broken mind

Delegates from the Texas Republican Party recently gathered in Fort Worth to iron out their party’s official 2012 platform. And in the official platform document, it is spelled out that the Texas Republican Party is in full support of mandatory labeling of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), legalized raw milk, and the complete elimination of the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
The 22-page report outlining the party’s platform contains a section titled Empowering Families to Direct their Health Care that promotes freedom of choice in food and medicine, including the freedom not to vaccinate. The Texas Republican Party also opposes all efforts to restrict access to vitamins, herbs, and other supplements, and also takes a stance in support of natural, unprocessed foods, including legalized access for all to raw milk.

The same section of the report calls for the passage of real health care reform that will allow all Texans to choose the health care of their choice. The Texas Republican Party specifically endorses a truly “market-based, competitive, and transparent health care system” that is not controlled by Big Pharma and other special interests, but rather serves the health needs of individuals.
Later on in a section titled Promoting Individual Freedom and Personal Safety, the party calls for mandatory labeling of all GMOs “in a uniform and recognizable fashion.” The party also opposes the mandated use of “Smart Meters,” which can be used by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and other government agencies to spy on individuals.

Though the Texas Republican Party still endorses the use of war to fight so-called terrorism, the party has called for the elimination of policies that allow for the indefinite detention of American citizens without due process, and in violation of the U.S. Constitution. This platform position presumably implies opposition to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which directly violates both the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

Along these same lines, the Texas Republican Party is calling for the complete elimination of the TSA, including the agency’s ridiculous naked body scanners and invasive, full-body pat downs. Airport security should be handled by state and local law enforcement, according to the party, which are far less prone to constitutional abuses.
Though not perfect, the Texas Republican Party’s 2012 platform supports many important positions that aim to protect health freedom and oppose government tyranny. You can read the party’s full platform here: http://www.scribd.com
