RINOs need to take back
the Republican Party

Washington Post, by Kathleen Parker

Original Article

Posted By:supersid, 2/20/2013 7:24:06 PM

RINO-hunting, the long-popular political sport that morphed in 2008 into a sort of hysteria-driven obsession, lately has become a suicide mission. RINO, of course, refers to Republicans In Name Only and is the pejorative term used against those who fail to march in lockstep with the so-called conservative base. I used “so-called” because, though the hard-right faction of the party tends to be viewed as The Base, this isn’t necessarily so. My guess is there are now more RINOs than those who, though evangelical in their zeal, are poison to their party’s ability to win national elections.

Comments:
Kathleen Parker calls for the ´unapologetically sane´ republicans to re-assert themselves in a party taken over by the fringe.

*sigh* I thought Parker had faded away into obscurity after her CNN debacle. I see she´s still around to label conservatives as "insane". What is she calling herself these days?

There you go, RHINOs, listen to the lefty journalists - your soul mates. Great advice!!! She really has your best interests at heart.

I´m for anything that will hasten your demise.

Kathleen Parker, I fell in love with your posts years ago. I don´t know what caused you to start down the dark path, accommodating Liberal swine, but you have far traveled that road.

Conservatives do not need to compromise with Liberals in the least. Liberals are empty people in empty suits. It is the Hollywood Media machine we need to defeat. The machine is devoid of emotion. It´s sole purpose is to defeat and destroy Conservatives. Never give in to this evil. Fight it every day.

This really needed saying. Republicans need to appeal to the majority of voters and you won´t do so going around acting like a bunch of rabid dogs.

Now aged 82, I have been a Republican since 1968 and proud of it. It is the party of reason, and we shouldn´t run from that. Reason attracts more adherents than rabid, and can win more elections. We should eschew people with a death wish who want to drag us down with them on some imagined principle, and become a big tent again.

As to those who want to go down with some mythical ship, let them bay at the moon on their own dime.

Has anyone heard ANY statements from Republican Party Leaders about the ever increasing division in the Republican Party? I have read opinions on boards and heard pundits and such, but I simply have not seen Preibus or any elected members address this bloodbath.

If Republicans become the same as Democrats what´s the point? That is what these people like Parker want. Why don´t they just become Democrats? They are trying to take away any reason to vote for them.

What we need is to have is The American Party.

Love of country, constitution based and free market.

Oh, wait.

Nevermind ...

... it´s called The Tea Party.

And we´d rather go down fightin´ than get dragged down into Marxism.

The RINOs can have the GOP. Anyone with true conservative values and a spine, left the GOP years ago. As "independents" we may be wandering in the political wilderness, but at least we haven´t prostituted our core values.

´´RINOS?´´ ...Actually, a statist is a, ´´statist,´´ regardless of party affiliation, which is why there is hardly any difference between how they vote as elected officials. The current problem in the GOP is that vote for a RINO might as well be a vote for a bonified 1960´s/2013 radical lefty/lib/dem pol as the resulting statist policies are simpatico.

Mark Levin´s best seller, ´´Liberty and Tyranny,´´ explains statism and so is a definitive must read.

Yes, Rino´s do indeed own the Repub party with all the losses they rack up. Rino´w rule is the true object of all Democrats, moderates, and leftwingers. Only one small group and growing smaller is left to bemoan the end of our country´s sovereignty. And, we get blamed for all defeats, no matter how we vote. We vote for Dole, McCain and Romney and yet it is our fault the Repubs are losers. Typical of the mentality of liberals, moderates and Tea Party haters.

Fiscal Deal

WASHINGTON — Senate Democratic and Republican leaders reached final agreement on a deal to reopen the government and extend its borrowing authority into February, with votes in the House and Senate possibly to begin this afternoon, according to aides familiar with the negotiations. Senate Republicans have gathered for a final review, but lawmakers have given no indication they will block it. A government shutdown into its third week yielded virtually no concessions to the Republicans other than some minor tightening of income verifications for people obtaining subsidized insurance premiums under the new health care law.

In 20 or so years of political speechwriting, the only condition I have ever set down in advance of being hired is that I would never, under any circumstances, assist any candidate or officeholder in promoting the cause of abortion. (Snip) Come to think of it, I first learned about the “abortion rights” cause and about the ruthlessness of industrialized farming around the same time, at the age of 13 or 14, and my reaction to both was similar: You just don’t treat life that way. Look at pictures of the victims in each case, at the thing itself, and

On his radio show the other day, Hugh Hewitt caught me by surprise and asked me about running for the United States Senate from New Hampshire. My various consultants, pollsters, PACs and exploratory committees haven’t fine-tuned every detail of my platform just yet, but I can say this without a doubt: I will not vote for any “comprehensive” bill, whether on immigration, health care or anything else. “Comprehensive” today is a euphemism for interminably long, poorly drafted, and entirely unread – not just by the peoples’ representatives but by our robed rulers, too (how many of those Supreme Court justices

In the small but cohesive Mormon community where he grew up, Hans Mattsson was a solid believer and a pillar of the church. (Snip) But when he discovered credible evidence that the church’s founder, Joseph Smith, was a polygamist and that the Book of Mormon and other scriptures were rife with historical anomalies, Mr. Mattsson said he felt that the foundation on which he had built his life began to crumble. Around the world and in the United States, where the faith was founded, the Mormon Church is grappling with a wave of doubt and disillusionment

Sanford, Fla. - George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager, igniting a national debate on racial profiling and civil rights, was found not guilty on Saturday of the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin. He also was acquitted of manslaughter, a lesser charge. After three weeks of testimony, the six-woman jury rejected the prosecution’s contention that Mr. Zimmerman had deliberately pursued Mr. Martin because he viewed the hoodie-clad teenager as a criminal and instigated the fight that led to his death. Mr. Zimmerman said he shot

Just when I thought the George Zimmerman "trial" couldn´t sink any lower, the prosecutorial limbo dancers of the State of Florida magnificently lowered their own bar in the final moments of their cable-news celebrity. In real justice systems, the state decides what crime has been committed and charges somebody with it. In the Zimmerman trial, the state´s "theory of the case" is that it has no theory of the case: might be murder, might be manslaughter, might be aggravated assault, might be a zillion other things, but it´s something.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent
