Kevin Drum at Calpundit links to the 2000 Texas Republican Party Platform.

I think it's interesting that George W. Bush's GOP wanted, in 2000, to repeal the War Powers Act, noting that

" A perpetual state of national emergency allows unrestricted growth of government. The Party charges the president to cancel the state of national emergency and charges Congress to repeal the War Powers Act and to declare an end to the previously declared states of emergency. "

They're also bullish on creationism, want to dissolve the ATF(!), and want to abolish the federal reserve and put the U.S. back on the gold standard. Yes, these are grown men and women.
