On May 10, Maine Republican convention voted to scrap the the proposed party platform and replace it with a document created by activists from the Tea Party.
The document calls for the elimination of the Department of Education and the Federal Reserve. Demands an investigation of "collusion between government and industry in the global warming myth," suggests the adoption of "Austrian Economics". Declares that "'Freedom of Religion' does not mean 'freedom from religion'. Insists that "healthcare is not a right". Calls for the abrogation of the "UN Treaty on Rights of the Child" and the "Law Of The Sea Treaty". And also declares that the US must resist "efforts to create a one world government."
Do you think that with this decision the Republican Party is being truthful to its foundational principles and it is going in the right direction? or you think is moving far from its core values?
Do you agree with the demands of this platform? Why?
Do you think other Republican state conventions will follow the footsteps of Maine?
