RINO Hunters are RINOs in camo

IF you are a member of a group like "Rid the Republican Party of R.I.N.O.s" then the RINO is you.

Every time you bash the Republican Party and its members and its elected officials, YOU are the Republican In Name Only.

People who claim to be more Constitutional than the US Surpeme Court are like a Catholic who claims to be more Catholic than the Pope. I do not believe them.

People who claim to be conservative and hate democracy, the consent of the people, I do not believe them.

People who claim to be Republican and are "RINO Hunters" who bash the party and its elected officials, I do not believe.

If you proudly claim to be a member of the Republican Party without bashing the Party or its elected officials, that I will believe.

You have NO business attempting to define what it is to be a Republican when you only CLAIM to be a "Constitutionalist, Christian, Conservative, or Patriotic.

I believe that RINOS do exist. While I am a conservative, the Repubs have demonstrated failure many times and have failed to adhere to their principles. I will support R so long as they are conservative. You are advocating lock step allegience to a party, not the People.

I'm a Republican and most certainly loathe almost every elected Republican in Washington. I'm not a RINO, I'm a Republican with very poor representation of the party.


John you are a Republican in name only! You've been a prison guard too long and forgot that "we the people" doesn't include you. You lost your sovereign citizenship when you put that uniform on and swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution. You serve us "we the people" you are the servant we the masters yet you put youself as a god as to decide who's a RINO and who is not. You don't get to decide, "we the people" do! We have decided that you are a RINO!

I doubt that either of you have a knowledge of politics, patrotism, conservativism, or the Constitution. You are the type whose propaganda put the Democrats and Obama in office. You are just shills for third party candidates.

People are free to think whatever they want, even if the conclusions they come to are bigoted. The whole concept of a RINO hunter relies on the existence of a partisan system. The partisan system cannot exist. Here's why:

1. People cannot be described by a discreet set of ideals. Each individual has a unique set of beliefs; each of these beliefs have a continuous set of 'strengths', and each belief has a relationship with other beliefs that the individual has.

2. 'Being' Republican or Democratic, according to outspoken members of both parties, represents a discreet set of ideals.

Therefore, unless a person has the exact beliefs, strengths of beliefs, and the same interactions of those beliefs as put forth by a party, they are not a part of that party. For probability, see chances of identical snowflakes.

If we change the partisan system in our model to instead represent a continuous space of beliefs, then it may have more than one member. The basis for RINO hunting assumes that there can be no continuity of beliefs in their party, therefore RINO hunters base their beliefs on a fallacy.

In other words, they're idiots for thinking that Republican = Conservative and all of us are idiots for thinking that the Republican or Democratic parties actually mean anything.

I do not advocate any lock step manuver. If the People elect a Republican, that person is the representative of Republicans in that district. All this "We The People" rhetoric seems to constitute a majority of one. If you feel some other party represents you, change parties. I will stick with the first President who came from the Republican Party:
The true rule, in determining to embrace, or reject any thing, is not whether it have any evil in it; but whether it have more of evil, than of good. There are few things wholly evil, or wholly good. Almost every thing, especially of governmental policy, is an inseparable compound of the two; so that our best judgment of the preponderance between them is continually demanded.

Republican Leaders in the Senate & House

Senator Jim DeMint's Official YouTube Account Following the November elections in 2006, the senator stood up against big spenders in Congress and stopped over 10,000 wasteful pork projects. Famed Washington journalist Robert Novak called him a "hero."He was recently ranked as the Senate's most conservative member by National Journal and as the No. 1 senator voting for responsible tax and spending policies by the National Taxpayers Union. DeMint understands the greatness of a country is found in its people and values, not in its government
Republican Leader of the House, John Boehner House Republican Leader and a staunch opponent of pork-barrel politics, John is fighting to eliminate wasteful spending, create jobs, and balance the federal budget without raising taxes. He has challenged Republicans in the 111th Congress to be not just the party of “opposition,” but the party of better solutions to the challenges facing the American people. Under the new House GOP leadership team John leads, House Republicans have formed “solutions groups” to develop principled alternatives on the issues that matter most to American families and small businesses, and launched the GOP State Solutions project, an initiative aimed at bringing reform-minded Republicans at the state and federal levels together to promote common-sense solutions from outside the Beltway.
