    I don’t agree with Mr. Catalino about whether or not the Republican party is being reasonable or whether they should compromise given the horrible direction the Democrats would take this country if given free reign.

    But I have always resented the RINO epthet because it always comes from the Stupid and the Superstitious members of the party and is heaped on those who would bring intelligence and common sense.

    The Republicans wouldn’t have had all their woes if they had shown some party discipline during the last round of elections. Letting the Candidates from Missouri (Akin) and Indiana (Mourdock) spew their Right to Life Talking points turned off voters across the country and showed our party to be the haven of the uneducated and uninformed. You may agree with the RTL position but that doesn’t make it OK to assume their nonsensical claims about biology are true.

    The Republican party needs to do a serious outreach to Educated candidates if they hope to continue to attract educated voters.

    They also need to stop believing that the Bible is a good substitute for science. It’s not. There is a reason we call the time of Catholic supremecy the DARK AGES.

    When it becomes difficult to tell which party is which, why should we care?

    Politician A: “I’m for bigger, more intrusive government.”
    Politician B: “I’m for even bigger, and even more intrusive government.”

    Reason, logic, and facts do not exist on the Progressive Left. When it comes to compromise for the left JFK described their style best:
    “What’s mine is mine, what’s yours is negoitable.”

    That’s something of a laughable statement when your party’s definition of compromise is “you give us everything we want and we’ll think of more things to want”.
    After all, 98% of what John Boehner wanted wasn’t enough!

    the TEA party are the RINOs.

    If the RINOs did employ reason, they wouldn’t be RINOs. They are full of compromise, however, so go ahead and cut that one off. 1/2 fail for this cartoon…

    You make very solid points, but I’ll add a somewhat different perspective.
    The Christian/Catholic bible itself makes the case for separation of church and state with “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s”. Therefore the “rules” in the good book are for believers only and government should be for the good of all, both believers and unbelievers. Conforming to God’s law HAS to be voluntary, not compulsory. Don’t believe in gay marriage? Easy. Marry someone of a different gender.

    Effective opposition!? LOL!
    You mean like that the government shutdown they sponsored? What did that do for them exactly?

    Not completely true Denis1112. The Left has three responses to a logical factual and rational argument:

    Type I: Change the subject
    Type II: The ad hominem attack or insulting slur
    Type III: Refuse to answer and stomp off mad.

    The TEA piddle party cut off that “compromise” horn a long time ago, AND the “reason” one as well. They ARE the “RINO” crowd, while moderates and sensible Republicans ARE about as common as hen’s teeth, they’re not totally gone.(yet)

    States the Wolf aka Nikolai Stavrogin… but like Neocon man you are probably too ignorant to recognize the literary reference.
