Don't be fooled indies & mods, there is no longer such a thing as a moderate Republican. True, they've wised up some by not falling for anymore Sharron Angles or I'm not a Witches, but listen to what the "establishment Pugs" are actually saying. It's not much different.

Anyone who hopes the party has finally come to its senses will be disappointed. Republicans have pragmatically decided not to concede Senate elections by nominating eccentrics and crackpots. But in persuading the party’s activist base to come along, establishment leaders have pledged fealty to eccentric, crackpot ideas.​

Those TEA Partiers calling for Fiscal Responsibility and a reduction in taxation! How dare they!

Saying they are the same as establishment Republicans is silly. If that were true, we would not have the primary battles going on. It would be like the lock step Democrats where there is very little exchange of ideas or debate at the primary level. They are just drones pushing bigger government, more dependency, and more intrusion on citizens lives.

It ain't Democrats regulating and passing judgement on woman's reproductive lives - can't get more intrusive than that.

Wasn't the left that came up with the term RINO. Americans are getting weary of extremism - time for all zealots to go!

Extremism is running up a $17 Trillion Debt with a plan to go to $25 Trillion without any plan to pay it off. That's extremism, selfish, and will destroy the nation and generations to come.
