As opposed to the RINO establishment types who are best buds with the Democrats and work across the aisle with them when it hurts conservatives the most (you know who you are McCain). I am a libertarian. I believe in individual freedom and that each individual should be fiscally responsible for themselves. The smallest, most fiscally conservative government possible that fulfills its Constitutional obligations is the only way to for individuals to be free. Those that say conservatism and libertarianism are mutually exclusive either do not understand one or the other or are deliberately lying about one or the other. As for anyone who keeps posting that we must vote for (R)s regardless of their position on issues, that stance is definitely not favorable for conservatives because it is the status quo, it is the Establishment (R)INO position and it only benefits the (R)INO. It does not ever give the (R)INO or the GOP as a whole any reason to embrace the conservative principles of the base. It keeps the like of Rove and McCain in power. It keeps those who believe that principles are optional in power and will ultimately pass Amnesty as a (R)INO bill.

If a candidate does not agree with you on issues that matter to you, it does not matter if that candidate agrees with you on who to name Post offices after. If you oppose Amnesty 100% and the (R)INO candidate is for Amnesty 100% then that (R)INO is effectively a (D)emocrat and has given you no reason (0% of a reason, if you will) to vote for them.The policies the candidates support matter, always. If the candidate supports your policies, vote for 'em. If they don't, don't reward them with your support because they NEVER support conservative positions when it counts. It's not a matter of how often a candidate supports conservative values, its supporting them when it counts. Its voting against cloture vs voting for cloture then voting against a bill you know will pass. Its supporting your own party's efforts vs supporting your good friend in THE DEMOCRAT PARTY (you know who you are McCain). And for those who don't agree with this, too damn bad. The years and decades of screwing conservatives have come home to roost.
By all means let us continue to elect establishment RINOcrats to the House and Senate. That way McCain can continue to hang out with his good friend Udall (D) and stay the Maverick course by crossing the aisle and voting with the Democrats at the exact moment when we need him and other RINOs to vote with the GOP, i.e. the fight against amnesty. Taking the Senate doesn't do a damn bit of good if the major piece of legislation passed is Amnesty, which McCain will push. So screw Rove and every other establish RINOcrat. Vote for the guy who has your principles and your back. Whoever that is.
Udall is such a close friend to McCain (RINO), that John McCain will not campaign for Cory Gardner. I guess RINOs don't really believe that winning the Senate is important, only their friendship with Democrats. Come to think of it it, since most RINOs spend most of their time sucking up to Democrats, how is this any different. So voting for RINOs helps us how?
Choir Boys who keep singing backup for Democrat policies (i.e. Amnesty)
"it's a free country" - Hugh Hewitt | Oct 07, 2014 Those of us who are tired of the lip service that RINOcrats pay to conservatives over issues that conservatives consider principles versus issues that RINOs consider disposable once the campaign is over will take that one simple statement as license to vote as we please (not that we need permission). BTW since big time RINOs like McCain don't believe the Senate is more important than their friendship with Democrats (see Udall (D) Colorado), why should ANY conservative even worry if ANY RINO is ever elected to ANY position. RINOs are as much the problem as Democrats (i.e. McCain / Graham Amnesty Bill).
"Principles for American Renewal." RINOs discard principles at the drop of a hat (or when told to by the US Chamber of Commerce). EVERY election they tell us we must sacrifice conservative principle to advance RINOs to office. Why would these be any different when it come to holding on to ANY of these principles? The next time the RNC stands by principles it advances will be the first time.
If Jeb Bush is the answer, you are asking the wrong questions. I will be very clear about this. I will not vote for someone who supports amnesty for illegal aliens, in any form. If the Republican candidate cannot be something different from the Democrat on this point, there is no point in voting for them. Offering a different form of amnesty is like offering a different form of poison. It still kills you.
Does Gabby and her husband still have their gun collection? Are their bodyguards armed? A yes to either makes the Giffords big hypocrites. But that was true already.
The Establishment RINOs agree with the Democrats so, in a sense, they have taken control of the narrative. After the election in November, with much hand wringing and crying, Boehner will jam down the House's throat a Comprehensive Amnesty Bill, written for him by the US Chamber of Commerce. Harry Reid will move pass it without amendments and the President will sign it by Christmas. That is why you don't vote for RINOs.
