Conservatives Urged to Vote for Their Favorite RINO

Conservatives Urged to Vote for Their Favorite RINO By Susan Jones CNSNews.com Senior Editor August 14, 2007

(CNSNews.com) - Conservatives across the country are invited to cast votes for Republican politicians most deserving of a "RINO" (Republican In Name Only) award.

"After losing Congress in the 2006 election, and with the Party possibly facing the loss of the White House in 2008, conservatives are less than enthusiastic about their representatives and potential presidential candidates in the upcoming elections," said Daniel Gilbert, a North Carolina businessman who is inviting conservatives to cast votes on his "We the People Gilbert for President" website.

Gilbert, who describes himself as an "ordinary American just like you," says he is running for the Republican presidential nomination.

"Fed up with excessive spending, amnesty for illegal aliens, and weak positions on family values and abortion, conservatives across the country are frustrated that their voices have fallen on deaf ears. Until now," said a news release announcing the Top RINO awards.

Gilbert is urging conservatives to vote for Republicans who have abandoned certain core beliefs of conservatism.

"Unable to check a "You Blew It" box at the voting booth, frustrated conservatives can now simply click on their favorite RINO to cast their vote, sending a message to top Republicans that the RINO is now an endangered species," he said. "These core conservative issues are what separate the elephant from the rhino; that is, true Conservatives from liberal Republicans."

I like this guy. Too bad he's not visible enough to get elected President.

Not at all. He stood up on the surge, and recently found his veto pen (on stem cells, Iraq, and soon to be excessive Democrat spending). GWB is wayward on some things but not spineless.

Gotta hand it to Lindsey “We’ll shut the bigots up” Graham for this years MVR (most valuable RINO), with Chuck Hagel as runner up, and Specter a lifetime RINO achievement award.

Olympia Snow of Maine ... a RINO going back to, and during, the Clinton era.

Favorite + RINO? Inappropriate use of the adjective "favorite". Having said that...

Mitt Romney

If a liberal started talking conservative tomorrow, would you buy his act? Mitt is like a bad social science experiment.

Republicans: “We are all RINOs now”.

Glad I’m not registered any longer. I can now vote for a conservative on the ballot. Any conservative will do. I don’t want to waste my vote on someone I don’t agree with.

the POTUS himself proved by his Globalism and his fealty to the ‘North American Nation’ that he is on top of the list.

There NO such thing as a LIBERAL Republican. That's simply a camouflaged DEMOCRAT.

The sad thing is Sean Hannity doesn't even ackowledge many of those on the list as RINOs and has or is helping some of them get into office. Then, he has the gall to whine about Republican betraying conservatives.

Conservatives Urged to Vote for Their Favorite RINO

The premise is wrong.

“What it means to be a republican” has changed, not the members of the party themselves.

Despite what the “party platform” states, republicans by their actions have deviated so far from the ideals of conservatism, limited government, and fiscal responsibility that the gop can more accurately be described as “democratic-lite”

Now, perhaps it makes sense to vote for which republican most completely represents the new style gop............

Of course that honor goes to the decider himself.

>> If a liberal started talking conservative tomorrow, would you buy his act? <<


This guy did (example: went from being a lifelong pro-abort to suddenly being 100% pro-life once he wasn't running for re-election), and alot of freepers immediately gushed over and him and ran out to buy his book. Incidentially, now that the GOP is no longer "in power", this guy is backing Mike Gravel for President. They don't call him Zig Zag for nothing.
