May 26

Greetings. I am a voting constituent in rural west Texas. From the Texas Tribune… “Republican Party of Texas delegates voted Saturday on a platform that called for new laws to require the Bible to be taught in public schools and a constitutional amendment that would require statewide elected leaders to win the popular vote in a majority of Texas counties. Other proposed planks of the 50-page platform included proclamations that “abortion is not healthcare it is homicide”; that gender-transition treatment for children is “child abuse”; to reverse recent name changes to military bases and “publicly honor the southern heroes”; support declaring gold and silver as legal tender; and demands that the U.S. government disclose “all pertinent information and knowledge” of UFOs.” If this is not a joke, it’s incredible that you might think that is the kind of thinking that would encourage any thinking person to be in Texas. But maybe that’s the plan. What you are trying to do in Texas is so regressive that we might as well go ahead and secede. Keep the stupid contained. These attitudes will not be sustained or accepted by our citizens. You go too far.
