Not sure I am. I and many others voted third party in 92. The result - Clinton was elected.
What's worse, he was elected as the economy had already recovered and the Tech Boom was about to take off, so he and the Dems got credit for all of the good that happened. That has left us at a disadvantage ever since, and may help Hillary get into the White House next. Why? Because so many of us went third party.
Pretending that this "GOPe" entity forced the primary voters to choose McCain and Romney is delusional. We keep getting RINOs because the voters elect them, and we'll keep getting them until we win Americans over to Conservative values. Unfortunately, blaming the "GOPe" is the easier way out, but all it will do is divide our vote. The result? The Democrats win.
Think of it this way. The Republican party is going hard left, and fast. Eventually sodomite marriage will be the law of the land. Do you think the GOP will still stand against it? No....too many of them are already caving. The party will give in completely and officially sanction homo marriage.
Will you still be willing to vote for a party that openly spits in God’s eye, and gives approval to what He calls an abomination?
It is because over the decades the GOPe worked with the RATs to have open primaries, allowing RATS to help push GOPe Statists to the front.
NEVER again will I vote for a RINO. I have drawn a line in the sand that will never be crossed.
Our Republic is being destroyed by the RATs and the GOPe pukes.
Conservatives need to view the GOPe and RATs as equal enemies.
What enabled McCain and Romney and other RINO candidates in other GOP primaries is the splitting of conservative votes by having multiple challengers talking conservative.
This is done by the GOP-E to enable the RINO to win the primary.
I support two conservative candidates running with one in the GOP primary and the other in the general as a third party if the RINO wins the primary.
