At least with the 'rats you know exactly what you are getting - communism, socialism, corruption. They are what they do.
With the 'pubs you get a bunch of lies saying what they aren't and still get all the same stuff as the 'rats.
Look at how effective conservatives were at stopping the liberal agenda when given a free hand as a minority. We were in much better shape under Clinton in many areas by forcing Clinton to address conservative issues. The bush government on the other hand only pays lip service to conservatives while allowing the liberal aganda to move forward. It is not about having a R government it is about moving our agenda forward and if that can be better done with he Rats in power (can that appears to be true) then so be it.
