Texas Politics & Their Politicians!

Does the oil from their wells leak into their drinking water?

Words of Wisdom from Govenor Rick Perry!

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, speaking in San Francisco on Wednesday night, said the U.S. would better serve its diverse population by letting the states handle many economic and social policies, a point he perhaps inadvertently drove home when he compared homosexuality to alcoholism.

"Whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not, you have the ability to decide not to do that," Perry said. "I may have the genetic coding that I'm inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way."     More at SFGATE.

Then there is the Newly Adopted Texas RNC Platform!

Under the new plank, the Texas Republican Party recognizes "the legitimacy and efficacy of counseling, which offers reparative therapy and treatment for those patients seeking healing and wholeness from their homosexual lifestyle."

"The platform reflects what the people in the Republican party have asked for, and that should be no surprise: family values, protection of marriage between one man and one woman and everything that goes along with that," said Jonathan Saenz, president of the conservative group Texas Values and a convention delegate.

The party did, however, remove language from the platform stating: “we affirm that the practice of homosexuality tears at the fabric of society and contributes to the breakdown of the family unit. Homosexual behavior is contrary to the fundamental, unchanging truths that have been ordained by God.”

And how Can We forget Louie Gohmert!    
(U.S. Representative from Texas's First Congressional District.) just can't make this sh*t up!!!
