Rush “nailed” the current state of the Republican Party and the split between conservatives and RINO’s. He squelched the idea of a third party as being a guarantee of RAT dominance for eternity. When asked by Greta who he admired in politics he mentioned Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin. Most interesting of all was Rush’s take on Obama and his “Limbaugh Theorem”. He claims that Obama remains in a campaign mode blaming the Nation’s problems (his policies) on the Republicans.

He [Rush] squelched the idea of a third party as being a guarantee of RAT dominance for eternity.
He has always been opposed to that, just like he has always decried people claiming to be political Independents.
The trouble is, the GOP does not even exhibit dominance when they own the Senate, the House and the Presidency. But all 3 keep moving leftward, just more slowly than the Dems.
What was the last 'movement to the right' exhibited by the Republicans?
Chief Justice Roberts? That seemed so, until he pretzeled a decision to approve Obamacare.
SCJ Alito? Recall that that came only after the near riots because of the Miers nomination.
The GOPelites keep moving leftward and there is nothing on the horizon to indicate they would change direction. So, how is conservatives staying in the party, but staying at the back and out of sight, ever going to change the GOP? It isn't. No more than the blue-dog Democrats have managed to push the Democratic Party to the right. What candidate that the GOPelites would push would move the party to the right? Jeb Bush? Chris Christie? Marco 'amnesty junior' Rubio? Paul 'amnesty junior too' Ryan?

The party will not survive if any sort of Amnesty passes the House or if Obamacare is funded and the debt ceiling is raised by any House action including the trick of “discharge petition”. Millions will leave.My guess is 7 to 12 million.
