From the August 1998 Idaho Observer:
Lone Star Conservatives Hit Targets
Gov. Bush at odds with Texas Republican Caucus
by The Idaho Observer
There are no more excuses--"they" know. Ten years ago, "our" politicians could have claimed ignorance of all of the things enumerated below because, well, that was then. Now there cannot be one politician alive who can claim ignorance to the U.S. sovereignty-usurping machines that are being employed to destroy our country. Just think what would happen at the polls next November if all of the state Republican caucuses would adopt the following party platform.
The Republican Party of Texas approved its 1998 party platform at its biannual convention in Houston last month. Mary Rakowski of the American Heritage Party of Idaho stated that her party "could not have said it any better."
With over 7,500 voting delegates in attendance at the convention, the Texas Republican Party platform calls for the "abolition of federal agencies involved in activities not delegated to the federal government under the original intent of the Constitution..."
The platform, which specifies some of the federal government's unconstitutional agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the Department of Energy, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Education, the Department of Health and Human Services, is at loggerheads with the private platform of Texas Governor George Bush Jr.
According to the Houston Chronicle, Governor Bush stated in response to announcement of the correct and patriotically American platform that, "a platform is a statement of the delegates of the convention," but said that he runs his own agenda.
Bush Jr. can be counted on to hold next to his heart the same agenda held by his father ex-President George Bush Sr. who is one of the world's busiest global socialists who sees a "thousand points of light," and "a new world order emerging."
The Texas Republican Caucus read the book by Dr. Gene Schroder, "Constitution: Fact or Fiction" where compelling evidence indicates that the U.S. has been in a declared state of emergency since 1934 that has never been rescinded, and that it is through the Emergency War Powers Act that each successive president since FDR has ruled this country by executive order. After reading the book, the 1994 Texas Rebulicans publicly called for the immediate suspension of the Emergency War Powers and a return to our peacetime Constitutional Republic.
The comprehensive platform mirrors all of the hopes and dreams of the educated conservatives and patriots in what remains of our once free nation. It calls for the abolition of the Federal Reserve and a return to the gold standard, abolishing the IRS and all federal income taxes in favor of a national sales tax (although The IO believes that all taxes may be removed if we charged tariffs and duties on imported goods).
The platform recognizes that federal judges have criminally abused their authority and that all of them who are guilty of criminal offenses should be impeached. The platform calls for the elimination of "presidential authority and other administrative mandates that do not have congressional approval."
The Texas Republicans also ventured into the tortured, special interest-driven, American sovereignty- usurping realm of foreign policy with its platform "statement," as Governor Bush flippantly called it.
The platform calls for the immediate withdrawal of the U.S. from the United Nations, the repeal of the NAFTA and GATT "free trade" agreements and the suspension of all U.S. donations to the International Monetary Fund. The platform opposes the creation of an international criminal court and military alliances such as NATO.
The Texas Republicans even had the conviction necessary for a political body to support "a thorough investigation , to be conducted by an independent investigator appointed by the U.S. House of Representatives, to determine whether the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission are promoting the establishment of a one-world government to the detriment of U.S. interests and sovereignty."
Although the Texas Party platform says all of the right things and has accurately identified many of the forces and entities that have worked in concert to imprison the land of the free, we have yet to see if the platform and the people who resolved to make it public have given the platform any teeth.
As made obvious by the comments of Governor Bush, he is not in support of a Republican Party platform that would intend to fix the things that are killing America. However, the Texas Republican Caucus has adopted a new rule that, if their party platform does have any teeth, Governor Bush will not receive his party's nomination for another run at governor.
The new Republican GOP rule demands that, "any candidate running as a Republican...in the State of Texas, shall be provided a Texas Republican Party Platform Questionaire, upon which each candidate may indicate for each plank item whether the candidate agrees, disagrees, or is undecided..."
The Idaho Observer will report what Governor Bush's responses were to the questionaire as soon as they are made availble. The governor's responses, and what the Texas Republicans decide to do about them, will be very interesting--if not precedent setting.
