This is an e-mail my husband sent me about the post below.
I believe that this is largely a publicity stunt to try to get some buy-in from the Republicans who have been repeatedly shafted in this years primary. The Republicans already have a WONDERFUL platform. Their platform is not the problem, it's that the crapheads who run on that platform choose not to implement it. Is there any hope that John McCain is going to implement ANY of the current "platform"? I think not.I'd say it's also a tool to get people to sign up for their email fund-raising campaigns. I for one am not interested in having anything further to do with their crappy party.
I still think it is important to get conservative views out in front of Americans. Even if no GOP person looks twice at the submissions, thousands of Americans will read them. That makes it worth it to me.
