The GOP Convention Platform Includes Far Right Social Wedge Issues
This editorial provides a preview of the GOP platform that has been developed for the coronation of Ryan/Romney. It is loaded with socially conservative wedge issues that will excite their cognitively challenged base in the South and in rural America. The question for the nation is whether we want a political party with a 16th century view of society to run America. The GOP establishment may believe that it can appease the social conservatives and focus on more important things like tax cuts for their billionaire benefactors. They may be have bitten off more than they bargained for.
