It is time to abandon the republican party. They treat the conservatives like the democrats treat the blacks. The leadership has no backbone and has been emasculated. The RINO's will never give up their positions of power. The idea to change the party from within has failed, it is time for a true third party. The republicans talk a tough game , draw all the flack , then eventually cave. They should be called the " Cave " party. They will cave on the " gun " issue and " immigration " issue.
