Dole was always a RINO, far more concerned about carrying the torch for the corporate-dominated wing of the Republican Party than preserving its political platform.
Grassroot Tea Party Republicans are reactionaries, not revolutionaries. Politics is a continuum. At present, this country is being lead by a revolutionary communist, striving to create a socialist state. What Dole, JEB, and the rest of the RINO class, doesn't understand is that if Ronald Reagan were alive today and running for the Presidency, he would not only be a Tea Party member, but its undisputed leader.
