“Defund the RINOs”

Nice sentiment, but those RINOs get much of their “campaign funding” from corporations. Those corporations give money to both parties and many of their candidates.

Voters/citizens are little more than irritants that incumbents have to face periodically.

Well, neither of my Alabama senators or there nor is my congress-critter. I will have to send him a well done email.

Autocorrection doesn’t seem to be automatic. Maybe you have some autocorrection program on your computer.

I am going to guess it’s because “cantor” is a dictionary word, whereas the others only exist as proper names.

Actually, in the primaries against hillary, Obama did distinguish his insurance program from hillary's by saying his would be voluntary and hers would be a mandate. I'm surprised nobody brought that up when Obama kept the government closed when all he would've had to do is keep his campaign promise and let Obamacare be voluntary.

In the BOOK OF LIES (history of Obama's administration, to be written sometime in the future...if there is a future) that lie might be chapter one.

My Congresscritter John Mica isn’t on the list. Glad to see Rubio grew a pair for once. He still needs to be primaried.

Another list to be kept (in the near future) is the surrendering on Amnesty.

I would bet pretty much the same list......

I often wonder who keeps voting for Lamar! and Bob when we get Conservative House members...

It's my opinion is they get elected for a couple of reasons.

1. Good ol' boy networking - which leads to

2. Piles of money which buy enough media to get the sheeple herded.

In the sentence that I typed it capitalized Boehner Obama but not cantor (see what I mean)
You could be right about the auto correct on my end, but it only happens to me here.
Also it doesn't always happen- Obama, biden, cantor, Boehner.

You’re not going to get rid of RINOs, ever. America is too diverse and too wishy washy to come to our side. We’re too harsh for the rest of the country.

The Dems offer something, big/expensive/intrusive government, with a ‘we got your back’ guarantee.

We offer - liberty and you’re on your own.

We have to come up with a better sales pitch. We need to learn to deal with RINOs on the many issues we can agree on. We need to take an incremental approach to getting things right. The best way is to win on economic issues. Get the economy going and the rest will follow.

The shutdown proved that you can get along at 90% of what we spend now. That can be tightened under a better POTUS. Remember when the world was going to end under Bill Clinton?

We need a focused message that covers issues 60%+ of voters agree on. That’s how you win and that’s how you keep power. Gingrich once said that the angels are in the details. We can do that, again.

As far as I am concerned; everyone on the above lists support ObamaCare. In one form or another; they ALL opposed efforts to undermine it. They must ALL go. Let them squeal, let them argue. Out. All of them.

Those voting against the 'lesser of two evils'...conservatives are always washed out in Tennessee's flawed primary system, and you wind up with a RINO candidate in the general.

“If we got rid of the “RINOs” the GOP would go from a minority party to a fringe party.”

First of all,that is simply not true.

Secondly, even if it were true, so what? About the worst that would happen is the new party would lose the same battles which are now being surrenderedd without a fightby the GOP. At best, the third party would lose battles same as now while representing their constituents faithfully and leaving the door open to the opportunity to grow into the first party by demonstrating faithful competence. Every party, reformed Republican or third party, has to start somewhere in the face of adversity.

Freepers, take advantage of our wonderful state forum feature which is one of the most useful wonderments of Free Republic.

I went to our Florida state board and posted the names I got off this thread....the names of those wusses who voted to end the government shutdown.

This is a way to inform freepers who may not read every FR thread of what their senators and local congresscritters are up to. The various state forums brings local politics even closer.

I listed congressmen Bilirakis and Webster as "yes" voters....and urged readers to contact them.....plus to go to their respective web sites to read their post-vote statements.

These statements are pure gobble-dee-gook, spin, ludicrously comical...and designed to turn their lemon votes into lemonade for the benefit of their districts' low-information voters. It's worth the price of admission to read them.

My posts on the Florida state board is now generating interest and a spirited conversation.

I hope each of you reading this will pick out the names of your senators and representatives from the list posted upthread......and get something going on your particular state's FR forum.

Continual communication and updating is crucial among conservatives....and we have the tools to do this at FR.

Leni

Boehner

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't it traditional for the Speaker of the House to not vote unless necessary?

Kline

At one point in time, I thought this guy was a conservative. Guess not.

Sadly, despite an energetic email and phone campaign among voters in the district, my crappy RINO congress critter voted to support the surrender.

As did mine (Davis, IL). Fortunately, he has a primary opponent.

Another crybaby thread. Some folks live i n a magical world. The shutdown was a stupid idea from jump. Obama was never going to defund Obamacare. He had the media, the bully pulpit and even the public on his side. The folks hate shutdowns and blame them on the Republicans. If you really want Nancy Pelosi as speaker....go ahead and default. The public would be tarring and feathering those members right now.
Before this stupid shutdown Obama was on ropes. His poll numbers falling,repubs going up. We had a solid chance to take senate and that old hag Hillary is entirely beatable. ...And that was before this disastrous rollout. Then we shut down the government....why? Because you stepped into a one,two combo crafted by Valerie Jarrett and got hammered. Get over your butthurt and take the fight to the real enemy...the left.

I’m not sure who it will be but I’m pretty sure of this. Hillary is going to get primaried from the left..Liawathea...Coumo...who cares. Still she’ll halve to move further to the left then Obama. Lol good luck with that. And I think Biden’s going to run. She just accused him of wimping out on the Bin Ladin raid. I bet he’s pissed enough to spill the beans on Bengazi.

Now I don't know why Chris Smith from NJ voted yes. And he may be a Republican In Name Only- but he is a pro-life Conservative.

Ask him for an explanation, as I intend to do. If it makes sense, he gets a pass; if not, we work against him next go-round.

In some states if you have no party affiliation, but vote in a primary for the dems or pubs they automatically affiliate you with that party.

Here in NJ you must declare R or D to participate in a primary. You also must be party affiliated to work the polls on election day.

The software for this site keeps capitalizing names like Boehner and Obama but cantor keeps a lower case c- just wondering why out loud.

A cantor leads songs in worship, so it has another meaning; the other two do not.

If you don't think that Obama is still on the ropes, I don't know what to tell you. Obamacare is STILL failing all over the place and his most recent rhetoric over raising the debt ceiling provided many useful soundbites.

And if you don't think its good news to know who the unreliable votes are in Congress prior to 2014, don't know what to tell you there either.

They’re politicians and also human beings. You’re never going to be sure. Sure primary guys like McCain , Lamar Alexander... Graham...but if you get a Mark Kirk in Illinois or a Scott Brown in Massachusetts you hang on to those guys. I don’t see the upside in this board wasting energy...really running around with their hair on fire trying to find out who stole the strawberries.
