Highlights from the Republican Party Platform

(1) PUT RIGHT-WING IDEOLOGY FIRST: We recognize that we need to cater to our right wing base rather than pesky moderates like Nancy Reagan and Orrin Hatch. Therefore we will put ideology over science and deny all credible scientific evidence that stem cell research will save lives and that global warming exists.


(2) DENY A WOMEN’S RIGHT TO CHOOSE: We will continue, at all costs, to ensure that women are denied their Constitutional right to choose. We will appoint judges who will work to rollback that right and we will fight for legislation that infringes on this right.

(3) REWARD OUR WEALTHY CONTRIBUTORS: We will continue to pass tax cuts that benefit the wealthiest Americans who fund our campaigns and get us elected.


(4) NEW BUSINESS FOR OUR FRIENDS WITH NEW NO BID CONTRACTS: We will provide no-bid contracts to our closest friends to ensure they will receive the largest contracts possible. Also, we will relaunch our secret energy taskforce so we can add more loopholes for big oil.


(5) ADD $10 TRILLION IN DEFICITS: In the past four years, this Administration has successfully taken the country from a $5.6 trillion surplus to a $5 trillion deficit – a $10 trillion loss of revenue. We want to take the next step by adding an additional $10 trillion to the deficits, leaving the burden on the next generation.


(6) HARM OUR ENVIRONMENT: We will rollback generations of environmental regulations that protect our air, land and water. We will poison our water with arsenic and mercury; we will allow drilling in our most pristine natural wilderness; and we will make sure taxpayers pay to clean up our toxic waste sites.


(7) CUT AID TO CHILDREN AND DECIMATE PROGRAMS FOR SENIORS: We will cut domestic programs that provide health care, early education and nutrition programs and after-school services to thousands of American children. We will continue to fail to live up to our commitment to fund our education mandate by $27 billion. We will also pass our $2 trillion plan to privatize Social Security.


(8) BREAK OUR COMMITMENT TO VETERANS: We will once again promise veterans will be provided for under a Republican administration. We will then fail to provide the funding veterans need for health care, cut 500,000 veterans from the system entirely and close veterans’ hospitals across the country.


(9) RUSH TO WAR IN IRAQ: We are proud that we stubbornly rushed to war in Iraq without our allies, sent our troops into combat without proper equipment, over-stretched our military, and failed to plan for the peace.


(10) LET AL QAEDA OFF THE HOOK: We will continue to divert our attention and resources from Afghanistan, break our promises to rebuild that nation. We let Bin Laden escape from Tora Bora to continue planning attacks against the U.S. from his hideout reportedly in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region.


(11) LEAVE AMERICA VULNERABLE: We will under-invest in port, chemical and nuclear security, claiming the war in Iraq protects us here at home, and hope no one notices Ridge’s and Ashcroft’s warnings of an imminent attack on the homeland in the coming months.

Orrin Hatch a moderate? :lol: Nancy Reagan was a Democrat...probably still is.

(2) DENY A WOMEN’S RIGHT TO CHOOSE: We will continue, at all costs, to ensure that women are denied their Constitutional right to choose. We will appoint judges who will work to rollback that right and we will fight for legislation that infringes on this right.

More anti-abortion Pubs than Pro-abortion...so naturally...The Pubs are an Anti-abortion party.

(3) REWARD OUR WEALTHY CONTRIBUTORS: We will continue to pass tax cuts that benefit the wealthiest Americans who fund our campaigns and get us elected.

Any evidence? it seems to me that the last FEC report had the Democrats with more contributors of $50,000 or more.......but forget facts...ri :tongue: ght?

(4) NEW BUSINESS FOR OUR FRIENDS WITH NEW NO BID CONTRACTS: We will provide no-bid contracts to our closest friends to ensure they will receive the largest contracts possible. Also, we will relaunch our secret energy taskforce so we can add more loopholes for big oil.

All federal contracts are through bids.....they have always been......the administration has little say in construction, the Senate has a big say in Natural resources, and Congress as a whole controls the purse strings...so remind me where Bush comes in.......

(5) ADD $10 TRILLION IN DEFICITS: In the past four years, this Administration has successfully taken the country from a $5.6 trillion surplus to a $5 trillion deficit – a $10 trillion loss of revenue. We want to take the next step by adding an additional $10 trillion to the deficits, leaving the burden on the next generation.

WRONG...In the current budget and at a 5% line item increase in future budgets...the deficit would be payed off by the year 2009.

(6) HARM OUR ENVIRONMENT: We will rollback generations of environmental regulations that protect our air, land and water. We will poison our water with arsenic and mercury; we will allow drilling in our most pristine natural wilderness; and we will make sure taxpayers pay to clean up our toxic waste sites.

Any evidence? There is absolutely NO evidence that any enviromental changes have been made since the last administration. It has all been spin, and POV. If Bush had made such a mess of the enviroment, the Washington Post had not published an analysis of John Kerry's speeches and found that only ONE out of 113 was on the environment. Again.....this is BULL.

(7) CUT AID TO CHILDREN AND DECIMATE PROGRAMS FOR SENIORS: We will cut domestic programs that provide health care, early education and nutrition programs and after-school services to thousands of American children. We will continue to fail to live up to our commitment to fund our education mandate by $27 billion. We will also pass our $2 trillion plan to privatize Social Security.

This is also Bull.....NOT ONE SINGLE program to provide health care, early education, or nutrition to school kids have been cut. In Fact, record increases have taken place. Education spending is higher than ever. Where do you get this stuff? :lol: It will eventually be partially privatized......we kinda liked it when Bill Clinton proposed it in 1993, so we decided that we should push it, instead of give it lip service. Do you have an idea to fix Social Security? :shakeno: I didn't think so......

(8) BREAK OUR COMMITMENT TO VETERANS: We will once again promise veterans will be provided for under a Republican administration. We will then fail to provide the funding veterans need for health care, cut 500,000 veterans from the system entirely and close veterans’ hospitals across the country.

This is laughable......I guess you don't bother with finding any facts to support your claims, and you just post a FLAT OUT LIE. Veterans Affairs was found to be over funded in fiscal year 2003.....so which is it? Get outta here with this LIE.

(9) RUSH TO WAR IN IRAQ: We are proud that we stubbornly rushed to war in Iraq without our allies, sent our troops into combat without proper equipment, over-stretched our military, and failed to plan for the peace.

Yeah, we rushed to war after we went to the UN three times, debated it in each house of congress, and spent a year in a runnup to the war....your'e kidding...right? The troops were well equiped, but further enhancements such as armored Humvees was voted against by Mr. Kerry and his brotheren in the Democratic Party. So wrong...again. Over-stretched the military? :roflmao: Please delete this one, as it so insipid as to be STUPID.
(10) LET AL QAEDA OFF THE HOOK: We will continue to divert our attention and resources from Afghanistan, break our promises to rebuild that nation. We let Bin Laden escape from Tora Bora to continue planning attacks against the U.S. from his hideout reportedly in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region.

A Michael Moore conspiracy theory makes it in!!!....CONGRATULATIONS in joining the Left Wing KOOK crowd!!!! Any evidence? Of course not.....We have spent billions in rebuilding that country and will continue to do so....as for Bin Laden...So YOU knew were he was? Damn, if I were you I would call those guys in the SAS and Delta Force because you obviously are privy to information that they don't have. Try to get their number from your local recruitment center.

(11) LEAVE AMERICA VULNERABLE: We will under-invest in port, chemical and nuclear security, claiming the war in Iraq protects us here at home, and hope no one notices Ridge’s and Ashcroft’s warnings of an imminent attack on the homeland in the coming months.

What are you talking about? This one is baffling. The Iraq war does protect us here at home, and since 9/11, port security as well as coast guard, FEMA, and the Energy Department have had 30% increases...remember that "Homeland Security Department Budget" thingy? You do know that department didn't exist and any money given to it is NEW money and therefore an increase? Do you?

I've said it before..Bush has done enough legit things to ***** about, why do these people need to make things up? Oh yeah, because they are going to nominate a living corpse as their candidate.
