RINO/Establishment Republicans Attacking Another Republican (Georgia)
thenewsdoctors.com ^ | Eric Dubin

Posted on 07/17/2014 5:32:44 AM PDT by cotton1706

At the grass roots level, Republican Party activists are constantly fed a message that party unity must be maintained. But the reality is, the “establishment” forces in the party don’t believe any of that malarkey. They are scared to death of TEA Party and liberty-minded, traditional conservatives because that segment of the Republican Party seeks honest reform that would diminish the power of the corrupt RINO establishment – and yes, when it comes to people like “punch the TEA Party in the nose” Senator Mitch McConnell, warmongering neocon Senator John McCain, and the theatrical do nothing to upset the status-quo House Speaker John Boehner, the term RINO fits perfectly.

Now, the Republican establishment is looking to repeat in Georgia what happened in the Mississippi primary. Erick Erickson reports in RedState.com:

Jody Hice, the undisputed conservative in the race to replace Congressman Paul Broun, is . . . well . . . a conservative. His opponent, Mike Collins, is the son of a congressman who goes around the district talking about what friends he is with various House committee chairmen in DC, etc.

In an organized effort, an outside group has begun mailing Democrats absentee ballot applications. The mail piece explains to Democrats that there is no chance a Democrat will win in the district (true, Paul Broun won it several times) and the only way to stop conservatives from winning is to support Mike Collins.

Did you know that the Republican Party spent more money fighting Republican primary candidates during the first quarter than money spent against Democrats? These establishment dinosaurs have the nerve to lecture reformers about party division? God forbid they permit competition in a free market of ideas and let Republican voters decide which candidates offer the best ideas.

The entire Democrat vs Republican charade is akin to WWE wrestling. They pretend to fight, and put on a good show of hating each other, and on occasion, they can really hurt each other, but when all is said and done, they are all on the same side and they are only interested in one thing: making as much money as they can.

...Democrat vs Republican charade...

I got it 100% right.

The "RINO" moniker is meaningless because the Republican Party is in bed with the Democrats.

Perhaps you mean CINO: Conservative In Name Only.

The RINOs are not going to give up power. Maybe the answer is for conservatives to win over black votes in an honest way. Talk about empowering neighborhoods with less federal regulations and setting up businesses and US jobs for US citizens. A positive message of things neither party is doing to empower and upgrade black and other disadvantaged US citizens could do it.

I'd wager that a campaign to send home the hordes from central america before schools open would be a huge winner, bringing over a lot of dem voters.

I would like to believe that is true, but because the left has controlled the education establishment and the mainstream message for more than a generation, a great percentage of people are too stupid to understand. That was the plan. Make them stupid and dependent.

I agree but Reagan got his message out. Stump speeches should be a message that outlines where to go and how to get there. Anyone can understand that.

Someone needs to get this to Ted Cruz ASAP. And all conservative news outlets, did Brietbart see it?

If you are in Paul Broun’s district vote for Jodi Hice.

The Gipper did it 30 years ago -— pre internet revolution. 30 years from that time this nation has experienced what the left has done in dumbing down kids.

Really?

So Ted Cruz is in bed with the RATs, Mike Lee is in bed with the RATs, Tom Price is in bed with the RATs, Louis Gomert is in bed with the RATs, Trey Gowdy is in bed with the RATs, Joe Wilson is in bed with the RATs, Michelle Bachmann is in bed with RATs, Sarah Palin is in bed with RATs, the TEAparty is in bed with the RATs...every Republican voter in the US is in bed with the RATs?

Brilliant!

No, and conversely; Republican isn’t the same thing as RINO.

More often then not, it is.

I am not a broken glass Republican. I am a Conservative and one that's been betrayed and used by the GOPe.

It can still be done. It’s a message that young people have never heard.

You go ahead and believe that Republicans are "on our side" while they work to destroy Conservatives and their message. The Republican machine is eating Conservatives and you and your denial help them.

You have a nice day.
