The Republican National Committee Platform Committee has drafted a staunchly conservative political platform that outlines their vision for America. To be presented to the delegates of the Republican National Convention for approval on Monday, the fact that the platform itself is politically conservative should come as no surprise. What’s surprising about the GOP’s 2016 platform is this: it is an ultra-reactionary platform that runs counter to a century of progress in civil rights, ignores some of the basic premises of our Nation’s founding and previous Republican philosophies, and outwardly ignores conclusive data on public health and climate change.
