Throw the Bums Out!

I, like many conservatives, am fed up with the Republican Congress, especially the Senate. Not the whole Congress, but those members who say they are Republicans but act like Democrats. On spending, support for the war, illegal immigration, many of our senators and representatives are elitists who are out of touch with their base. Even the President is out of touch on some issues, such as illegal immigration, but on the one big thing—the War—he has the right idea and that is all that matters. Not so with our RINOs in Congress.

However, instead of throwing out the baby with the bathwater, I will be voting come November and I will be supporting many of those same RINOs. Not with money to the Republican National Committee, because I think they are in large part responsible for the RINOs’ existence in the first place, but I will vote Republican over Democrat in a New York minute. I will be holding my nose as I cast some ballots, but at the end of the day, the idea of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid running both houses of Congress makes me just want to throw up. We’ll all be at risk under that scenario—-at risk of higher taxes, more government control over our lives, and successful terrorist attacks after they abandon the War on Terror, which they will surely do.

But I do want to throw the bums out. Only not in the general election. The time to do that is in the primaries. We have to get rid of the Trent Lotts and Olympia Snowes. The Republican Party needs to field strong conservatives and tell the RINOs and clock-punching politicians who lack any ideology (or spine) to go out to pasture, where they will be in good company with all the cow patties.

We must remember the names of the weak sisters in our Party and cast them out the next time they are up for election. In the primaries, but cast them out, we must.
