What a twisted view from POLITICO (of course).
If the RINOs and conservatives in the Party don’t start working together for their common good there won’t be a Republican Party.
I'm more than good with that.
The last primary season saw the 3 lifelong Conservative Republican presidential candidates overwhelmed by 13 non-lifelong Conservative Republican presidential candidates. Even if we'd consolidated to just 1 lifelong Conservative Republican they'd still overwhelmed us.
We need to excise the GOP-e from the party itself ~ just boot them out ~ I propose a corporate coup, rather like a leveraged buy-out. First, set up a New RNC ~ a totally new corporate entity, and Second, invite state Republican parties to send a representative to an organizational meeting.
Some states would not be invited. Some other states would be directed to not send specific personnel as representatives.
The NEWRNC would have all new rules that lodge more authority in the hands of the states regarding Presidential selection practices and policies.
No one associated in anyway with the GOP-e would be allowed to attend any NEWRNC event nor advise any NEWRNC registered candidates in state party primaries.
If conservatives don't abandon every one of their principles, celebrate/embrace socialism and BOHICA, there won't be a republican party.
My answer to the GOPe, what's a republican!
I didn't leave the republican party. The republican party left me.
