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.
