I was a Democrat because my father was a Democrat. I didn’t leave the party, the party left me. Now it is happening with the Republicans and I may change again-—to a third party? If one comes along that I like better-—yes.

Right now I see a Republican party with a lot of Democrats (RINO’s) running it.

This country needs term limits, and we need them bad. Older politicians are more interested in getting re-elected than in what is good for America.

I agree with everything you said, especially about term limits. But it will never happen. I no longer say I am a republican. I am a conservative and pray we will get a conservative nominated.

Your points against RINOS are valid.

The answer is a Republican party made up of fewer and fewer of them.

That’s where we should focus our efforts.

We need a better definition of RINO.

Too many are ready to destroy any potential candidate for one or two errors in judgement at any time in their entire lives.

If they were once a Democrat that automatically makes them a RINO Republican now, in the eyes of too many. No, Reagan was once a Democrat. Michele Bachmann came from a Democrat family and supported Carter when she was a college student.

Exactly the same words I use. I may not have been a strong Dem, the first President I voted for was Eisenhower. After about 20 years the Dems left me and I remained a conservative independent. In 2010 I registered Rep because there were 2-3 candidates in the primary I wanted to vote for.
