Republican Party of Texas – Scary
Posted by Jim Rector on July 5, 2008
In 2002 my proudest political moment was to serve on the Republican Party of Texas (RPT) Platform Committee. I actually felt like I was doing something constructive. In 2004 My wife and I were incredulous at the venom towards grassroots delegates at the state convention that simply wanted Republicans to be Republicans. We realized then that most of the state party leadership were corrupt RNC “yes men” ( or women) who labeled you un-loyal for daring to question their wisdom. We basically decided that that would be our last convention.
I’m saddened to see the shenanigans that took place this year by the party State Chair Tina Benkiser. I won’t regurgitate it here but point you to these links:
You will see that the party leadership violated the rule of law and suppressed the opposition using gross violation of procedural protocol. What a waste. I’m sickened by actions that would have made Hitler, Lenin, and Marx proud.
Oh well, just a rant. Another example of the Republican party leaving the folks who built it behind.
