We've come to expect Texas Republican opposition to evolution and Global Warming, but critical thinking too?
The Republican Party of Texas released its 2012 platform this month, outlining its policieson taxation, education, and a host of other issues related to the economy. Texas Republicans, according to the platform, support eliminating the minimum wage and the prevailing wage, doing away with the Department of Education and Department of Energy, and "reducing taxpayer funding to all levels of education" — but those aren't even the most damaging positions.
1) The party opposes almost all forms of taxation
4) It opposes multicultural education and "critical thinking"
