“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.
“The software for this site keeps capitalizing names”
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.
No crying here, do you see me crying (for them)?///
Good riddance, there should be a law banning them from ever working inside DC for 20 years........
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......
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.
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.
Here ya go
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.
This list should be given a prominent home on FR until they are voted out of office. Close ALL Republican primaries. End the shenanigans; remove the RINO’s.
Joyce - again...
“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.
I’m glad Walberg held firm.
Out of our 9 congressional districts only 2 are D..Nashville and Memphis..
Every one of them voted NO
Even Cohen in the Ford families old stompin ground voted against Obama..
1. Phil Rose R Bristol, Johnson City, Kingsport, Morristown
2 Jimmy Duncan R Knoxville, Maryville

7 Marsha Blackburn R Clarksville, franklin
8 Stephen Fincher R Nth Memphis, Jackson, Dyer
9 Steve Cohen D Memphis, Shelby County
Congressional wise we are probably the most Conservative, Republican state in the country...
Hahaha..you expected Conservatives in Michigan? That’s like Conservatives in NJ.
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.
Please see this thread: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3080525/posts before starting to form circular firing squads.
Most of the GOP reps from Michigan voted no.
Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't it traditional for the Speaker of the House to not vote unless necessary?
At one point in time, I thought this guy was a conservative. Guess not.
As did mine (Davis, IL). Fortunately, he has a primary opponent.
That was in response to a question......he never actually campaigned on heath care. Like any democrat he hid his true intensions in order to get elected!!!
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.
that old hag Hillary is entirely beatable
but not with a characterless liberal like Willard...
A Conservative with back bone could take her...
Interesting choice of words. Do you suffer from this affliction often?
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.
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.
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.
A cantor leads songs in worship, so it has another meaning; the other two do not.
Right- mostly RAT lite.
Thanks! Now I know what the 0 stands for in 0bama.
Happy to see that my Congressman, Tom Reed, voted NAY. Chris Collins from suburban Buffalo also voted NAY. The only 2 members of the New York State delegation to do so.
The government wasn’t shut down. Wise up.
Thanks for the list and good to see none of my reps voted for this .
Oh a new reason for the shutdown....it wasn’t about refund. Or then delay ...or then Vitter amendment ...it was about purging the Republican party when we had Obama on the ropes. Wow that’s just a great idea!
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.
