The above are examples of the over 450 planks of the 19 pages of the 2012 Republican Platform.
The republicans want to retain excessive subsidies to big polluting oil companies and reject any subsidies for renewable clean green energy sources as proposed by Jay Inslee. Subsiding renewable clean energy is picking winners and losers. Supporting big oil is good policy. It generates contributions for the right wing agenda.
Read all of the Republican platform before casting your ballot.
