Agreed. I may be in the minority here, but thinking that we can have a Republican majority without any 'RINO' is delusional.
That is correct, but the number of "RINOs" can be decreased. What we have to realise is that "RINOs" are in charge of the RNC, most state, and county Republican Party orginizations.
What is the solution?
If we want the Republican Party to return to what it once was, we conservatives need to be in control of the Party at all levels.
The moderates, and liberals who once ran the county party here have been replaced, those of us they called "right wing nut cases," now hold all the offices.
RINO's win by appealing to enough voters. For the most part, RINO's win in liberal districts or states. Liberal RINO's do not win in conservative states, or in races where an articulate conservative can win. If RINO's are the answer, why did Ronald Reagan win so handily?
I have no problem with holding my nose for a RINO in a liberal state or a liberal-leaning state (being from California and voting for the Governator as an example). My problem comes with having a RINO in a conservative state or district, or even worse, a Democrat.
