RINO,DINO,Out The DOORO!

  The Democrats of Pennsylvania have spoken in their primary vote,(WHAT AN ODD CONCEPT), that they don’t exactly trust Sen. Arlen Spector. You remember Mr. Spector, he was the Republican who became a Democrat when it looked like he was going to lose in the GOP primary. Now that’s funny. So it would seem that the former RINO was seen by Democrats as a DINO and didn’t trust him anymore than did hard line Republicans.

  The question now becomes does he accept his fate or will he muddy the waters even more and run as an independent.

  Many will see this as Democrats voting against a former Republican. I am sure there was some of that, but I feel that what this actually was, was the Democrats purging their party of a moderate(WHAT AN ODD CONCEPT). Remember that Sen. Spector was a long time senator in the state of Pennsylvania, he must have carried many Democrat votes over the years to do that.

 I believe that the battle lines are being drawn for this election cycle and the next. We have witnessed a move so far left by the current administration and congress that many people feel that it has gone too far. People on the left are circling the wagons against what they see coming. They realize that to hold on to the leftist advances they have made they will need true believers in office. And while Arlen Spector has voted many times with the Democrats on some important issues(WOW THAT SOUNDS FIMILAR HERE IN DELAWARE DOESN’T IT?), he is still an outsider to the members of the Democrat party who are devoted to the leftist ideas of that party.

  This is what can be expected to happen to many of the candidates and especially the incumbents that are so moderate as to not have any guiding ideology, in both parties. For the up coming battle to roll back Pres. Obama’s radical leftist agenda, it will take Republicans that are true believers in conservatism, and not those who wear the label when it serves their re-election purposes.

  Their is a battle coming to decide the future direction of this nation. Will we continue down this road towards a socialized society? Or will we take back this nation and return it to its founding principles of a democratic-republic, based on capitalism?

  In this battle there will be just two sides, the left and the right.Those in the center will be standing in “NO MAN’S LAND”, and they will be lost to the annals of history.

 So as we here in Delaware approach our own, oh so late primary, we should keep in mind that if we as members of the GOP want to be a part of taking back this nation from the leftist and their lap dogs , the moderates, then we must vote for candidates that we can be reasonably sure will make decisions based on founding principles and conservative values.

    Questions Frank: 1) What is the purpose of a political party ????????? 2) Do you actually believe that everyone in the GOP has to be in agreement with your idea of what is a good Republican? 3) Should the GOP exclude all moderates or non-social conservatives even if it means losing to the Democrats? 4) In other words, let’s purge our party–if you don’t agree 100% , then we don’t want you–right?

    Mr. Bennett, first let me apologize, I’m not sure what it is about your posting of comments, but you keep getting caught in the spam filter.
    Now to answer your questions.

    1.) “What is the purpose of a political party ?????????”, well in my view, it would be to support the candidate that the members of the party choose in the primary. If there were but one candidate registered for a party and no primary were needed, then the party would support that person and the people would have their say in the general. In my view it is not the party’s place to tell the people who to support. The party should have governing principles and ideology. If they do not appeal to enough people then the party will fail. Personally I believe that the reason the GOP has had such failure in recent years is due to the fact that they believe they can be all things to all people(i.e. BIG TENT) and end up being nothing to anyone.
    2.) “Do you actually believe that everyone in the GOP has to be in agreement with your idea of what is a good Republican?”, simple answer yes!
    3.)”Should the GOP exclude all moderates or non-social conservatives even if it means losing to the Democrats?” I think I answered this one in #1and#2, but I feel that if you continue to add dirt to a glass of water, eventually you end up with mud. If I believe that my ideals are what is best for the nation and its future, why would I want to support those with opposite views?
    4.)”4) In other words, let’s purge our party–if you don’t agree 100% , then we don’t want you–right?” Seems as if you are asking the samething over and over again. Look at what just happened to Arlen Spector, because he couldn’t make up his mind as to which political philosophy he would follow, he ended up on the outside of both parties. He obviously has no real guiding ideology, only a desire to hold office. This will no longer be sufficient.
    Mr. Bennett, believe it or not I enjoy our debates, but you must realize, I am an open book. I speak openly and honestly. I have no guile what so ever. I write this blog to put my ideas out there for others. I understand that some will disagree with them. I don’t care. I am one of those people who have absolutely no doubt about their opinions. This doesn’t mean that I’m never wrong.
