Nevada Republicans Break Ranks

Today at their annual convention in Las Vegas, Nevada Republicans voted to remove both opposition to abortion and opposition to gay marriage from their platform.

Republicans who sat on the platform committee said they decided not to deal with social issues this year because the U.S. Supreme Court and lower courts have weighed in and it doesn’t make sense for the party of "personal freedom" to have the government or the political party get involved in people’s personal lives.

I don't know what got into the water so that these Republicans finally realized that the party's libertarian history meant something more than just paying lip service to the memory of the 1960s.
