Since I was kinda hard on the Republican Platform yesterday, I went back through it so I could point out some positives. As to social so-called culture war issues, it is as Phyllis Schlafly says, the most pro-social con ever: abstinence only education; national amendments for both pro-life and pro-hetero only marriage (bye bye federalism); keeping faith-based initiatives without stipulations about government moneys being used to fund religious proselytism (as in Obama’s plan).
Hell they even got in a shot on the Law of the Sea Treaty. [For those who don’t know, search the database of TheWashingtonNote who has do yeoman’s work on the subject. For a sampling of a Republican who thinks otherwise, via the Note, here.]
So what did I come up with positively? Some strong stuff on human trafficking on page 7. That’s about it unfortunately.
