Shuns challenger who promised "pro-family" judges. Conservatives sell out in droves.
The Massachusetts Republican Party has nominated the most extreme pro-homosexual, anti-family candidates for Governor and Lt. Governor ever to run as Republicans for a state's top offices. Predictably, the results were greeted by cheers in homosexual blogs and websites across the country. The delegates to the Massachusetts State Republican Convention last Saturday overwhelmingly nominated Charlie Baker for Governor and his hand-picked running mate Richard Tisei for Lt. Governor.
As some observers put it, the RINO takeover of the Massachusetts Republican party is now complete. Vast numbers of social conservatives essentially sold out their principles in favor of the party establishment's wishes.
Charlie Baker publicly supports homosexual "marriage" and abortion. While CEO of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care the company had a policy of supporting "gender identity or expression." In 2008 Harvard Pilgrim scored a perfect 100% from the national homosexual group Human Rights Campaign for its employment policies. (This means it even paid for employees' "sex-change" procedures!)
Baker's fiscal history is also troubling. He was Gov. Bill Weld's budget chief during the expansion of the "Big Dig" -- the most expensive public works project in history -- in the 1990s. For the last ten years Baker has made millions as head of Harvard Pilgrim, as premiums went up by several times the rate of inflation. Baker also supports the Quinn Bill, seen as a fiscal boondoggle by many conservatives.
Richard Tisei, a state senator and Baker's hand-picked running mate, is probably the most left-wing Republican officeholder in history. He is openly homosexual and is a co-sponsor of the radical "Transgender Rights and Hate Crimes" bill (H1728) currently in the Legislature. He strongly supports same-sex "marriage" and voted NOT to let the people vote on it. He appears in a hideous pro-homosexual "marriage" propaganda video produced by the homosexual lobby (complete with phony statistics). He has a 100% rating by NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts and a 100% rating by Planned Parenthood. He co-sponsored the expanded buffer zone bill. He also co-sponsored the "emergency contraception bill" that was vetoed by Gov. Mitt Romney. On the fiscal side, Tisei has voted against bills to reduce taxes earning him the wrath of Citizens for Limited Taxation.
Do we need any more confirmation that the RNC as an idea is dead?

Looks as if I will be voting for Tim Cahill since the other “choices” are Duval the Devil and Baker the Devil’s Henchman.
This is Massachusetts — anyone that cannot figure that out maybe should think about not commenting. Comparing New England period along with New York for Republicans to the rest of our states is short sighted.
Let’s face it, the Taxachusetts “Republicans” are going to get their clocks cleaned by running these pro-leftist candidates. I mean, why would the people of Massacusetts vote for these RINOs when they can vote for the Dims and get the real thing (i.e., lefty)? If they wasnt lefties, they need look no further than the Dims.
wasnt = want
Same Sex Marriage
I have been and will continue to be a supporter of same sex marriage.
I believe in and support a womens right to choose.
What does this nomination mean? Don’t know how Mass works. Can the voters trump this in a primary?
The GOP doesn't fare to well in that comparison.
Down with RINOS!!
Just vote them OUT!!
Rebellion is brewing!!
What does this have to do with the RNC?
An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide. The same can be said for political parties.
This is exactly the sort of thing that will push Tea Party people into forming a third party - and Obama WINNING in 2012.
God help us.
Th only thing this proves is that conservatives and even meds didn’t bother to attend the convention.
The wars are won in the trenches.
God help us.
Exactly. There has to be a third choice between RINOs and idiot third partyists.
Oh wait, there is. It's called "conservatives stepping up to the plate and actually working to take the GOP back for conservatism."
My observation is that conservatives like to make a lot of noise, but then do nothing when they're asked to actually step forward and give of their time, etc. to help the cause. THIS is why there are so many RINOs in the GOP leadership - conservatives sat on their thumbs and let them get there. That needs to stop. Now.
Come on Massachusetts! It’s time to nominate Tea Party Candidates and do a NY-23 (an independent run)!
