Not all are Rhinos

Not all Republican congress people are Rhinos. Copied and pasted a couple paragraphs on the past give away by the Rhinos to the Libs

More recently, Boehner's decision this week to pass a "clean" bill funding the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has exacerbated conservatives' concerns about his leadership.

As proof of the discontent, 167 Republicans bucked their leadership by opposing the DHS package. Their votes protested Boehner's move to strip out provisions undoing Obama's executive actions shielding millions of immigrants living illegally in the U.S. from deportation.

Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.) called Boehner's capitulation "a sad day for America."

"If we aren't going to fight now, when are we going to fight?" he said Tuesday just before the vote.

Every Democrat joined 75 Republicans in passing the bill.


There is talk of kicking * out of his speakership, Libs want to keep him. Hell why would you want one of your allies kicked out

    All of it is expensive buffoonery; even if Boehner is booted what difference does it make? The government growth is out of control, self feeding and unstoppable.

    The Republican Party except for a few rare shining examples is no different than the Democratic party. They serve self above all others.

    My Congresscritter Bill Johnson OH 6th is a shining example of turds in the punch bowl of DC and a man that sold his soul to the DC devil to keep his committee seats. He voted for Bonehead for Speaker, he voted AGAINST the clean bill because the backlash over his support of bonehead was burning up his phone and fax lines. He KNEW the DHS bill was going to pass with out his vote, so he was safe voting no to cover his butt.

    His FREEDOM rating is 62%, he caters to the takers while trying to appease the payers with minor deeds of resistance. He claims he wants to accomplish something yet stands for little. Until men and women of principle stand together and shut the pit of vipers down nothing will change except for Obama's goal of fundamentally changing this nation. A word he left out is change to Marxism.

    We're in a helluva shape here in Washington state with Murray and Cantwell. I would imagine their freedom numbers are in the high negative territory, like -500%.

    What we really lack is a right wing party.

    If people were honest with themselves, they would say that Democrats are socialist leftists. Republicans are somewhere between that and the center.

    There ARE some true conservative Republicans who are to the right of the center line; however, one of two things inevitably happens to them.

    1. They get intimidated into following the party line when they get to DC, and give up their principles and idealism. And the party line is controlled by old guard RINOs.
    2. They don't give in, but their voices are insufficient to move the giant RINO controlled and dominated block.

    I'm all for taking back the Republican party and making it again a right wing party. However, I increasingly see that such isn't going to happen. While the folly of third parties is that it divides the vote, I'm almost starting to think that the true conservatives need to start small in that area- local and county elections. Build their names there. Then state elections. Then once they have name recognition, THEN form a third party.

    This would take, what, 30, 40 years?

    Democrats play the long game. Time for our side to do so as well.
