Just read a long list of long-winded resolutions, evidently sent out from Libertarians to their followers who are attending Republican Precinct Conventions. Here’s a bit of my response:
RESOLVED, the legitimate purpose of government is to protect the inalienable rights of individuals from infringement by others.
RESOLVED, any resolution with more than two “Whereas” clauses will be ignored by all RPT Conventions.
RESOLVED, all “resolved” clauses should be written so that they stand alone since only the “Resolved” portion of a Resolution matters and multiple “whereases” are irritating.
RESOLVED, all resolutions calling for a shorter RPT Platform shall be shorter than the Platform itself.
RESOLVED, the RPT resolutions should be in plain language rather than in pseudo-legalese.
RESOLVED, clauses directing that resolutions passed by the Precinct and County Conventions be passed to the State Convention are redundant under the rules of the RPT.
RESOLVED, the products of gardens, farms, ranches, cottage industries and manufacturing which are not transported across State lines should not be regulated more than the minimum necessary to prevent disease and the infringement of citizens’ inalienable rights.
RESOLVED, licensing of the professions and trades serves to prevent the infringement of inalienable rights of citizens.
RESOLVED, the Primary election rather than a caucus is the best way to ensure one-citizen-one-vote.
RESOLVED, the Republican Party of Texas isn’t interested in redefining marriage as anything other than the union between one man and one woman, so get over it.
Update: additional Resolutions as they come to me.
RESOLVED, laws necessarily limit our individual rights and should be minimal.
RESOLVED, gun regulations and background checks are not consistent with “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
RESOLVED, . . .
