RINOS are worse than Democrats. One who claims to support the 2nd and when elected does a 180, I have absolutely no use for them. The RINOS have hurt America far more that the idiot Democrats. We have RINOS here is TX also and it makes me sick.

@Piper C, I agree. The party system does not serve the American people. The party system serves the party high ups. The party system was invented by corrupt men for corrupt purposes. In this age of electronic communication, it is long past time to ban the party system. It is also long past time to ban lobbyists, multi-term Congress persons, life time judicial appointments, and agencies power to “make regulations with the force and effect of law.”

Here in florida we elected brian mast, because he said he was pro-gun. He turned out to be a rino. Now he wants to ban the ar15.


Manny Santos is a RINO and has no problem with bringing in more illegals. Far as he is on the 2nd, I dont trust him. CCDL is being duped.
