It is a lot of work to sift through political party platforms, more than most folks are willing to do. So, I am going to attempt to simplify for the reader what the two parties have in mind for the future of the great state of Texas.
Education, Republicans believe, is not an unalienable right that makes the pursuit of happiness possible. Instead, Republicans believe education is a commodity, and your access to it is limited only by money and time.
Our nation and our children will be watching to see if the Republican party commits itself to the America of opportunity and possibilities, free of the hate, bigotry and prejudice found in the Texas GOP platform.
