National Catholic Register ^

Posted on 04/21/2014 7:52:05 PM PDT by Windy City Conservative

Several hundred delegates of the Nevada Republican Party approved a party platform April 19 that drops both its pro-life plank and support for the definition of marriage as a union of one man and one woman.

Nevada Republican Party Chairman Michael McDonald told the Las Vegas Review-Journal he thought the party platform was “about inclusion, not exclusion.”

“This is where the party is going,” he said.

So in Nevada they have democrats and democrat lite, but no Conservative party?

“This is where the party is going”.

Ronald Reagan had it right. Freedom can be lost in a generation.

When is the sleeping giant (the church) going to arise and take back America?

They may as well stick with Harry Reid, then.

It hasn’t stopped a lot of Catholics from voting for democrats.

I simply can’t in good conscience vote for another republican.

Not only has Nevada taken this stance, so has “Club for Growth”
On Club for Growth website:

“Does the Club for Growth PAC look at social issues when considering a candidate endorsement?

No, our focus is only on economic issues. A candidate’s stance on social issues does not impact the Club’s PAC’s decision in whether or not to make an endorsement.”

Welcome to libertarianism.

Rand Paul:
“I think that the Republican Party, in order to get bigger, will have to agree to disagree on social issues,” Paul advised. “The Republican Party is not going to give up on having quite a few people who do believe in traditional marriage. But the Republican Party also has to find a place for young people and others who don’t want to be festooned by those issues.”

Most of Nevada (not all) ultimately depends on decadence to earn a living. Approximately one out of six women between the ages of 18-60 are prostitutes. It is the home state of Harry Reid. Corruption is endemic. The local Republican Party nevertheless is making a huge mistake.

Sure hope you won’t vote for a democrat then.

Walk your block — get out the vote. That’s all the Republicans need to do to win the election.

Brian Sandoval is a GOPe kind of guy. Clark County School district is has over 100,000 illegal alien kids at $12,000 per kid its educating.

The Las Vegas strip maids, and other hotel staff are almost all illegals.

This is amazing since so many of Las Vegas unemployed the highest in the country are Americans put out of work by illegals.

About 90,000 homes in Las Vegas are either in foreclosure or have the been foreclosed and are on the books of the banks as dead assets.

Sandoval has made Las Vegas a sanctuary city for illegals.

too many in the church believe the lies about what separation of church and state isn’t. many also don’t understand when you actualy fight for stuff. and you cant win with too few generals and almost eveyone else naive immature privates.

Not a good sign. I would not have expected it, either, given the fact that so many there just stood up to tyranny again this week.
Picking the date that should be most remembered for American dedication to the cause of liberty is almost an insult and a reversal - even a begging for judgment.

“you cant win with too few generals and almost everyone else naive immature privates.”

Elijah felt the same way, but there was an angelic army ready to fight the battle alongside those with faith.

If God is for us, who can be against us? The remnant must arise.
