John Cornyn - Conservatives have to yield to reality. Bullshit.

A letter sent to John Cornyn in response to this article in The Hill, brought to my attention by David Codrea at War on Guns.

"Conservative primary voters "have to yield" to reality, Senate Republicans' campaign chairman said Wednesday.

Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), suggested that conservatives need to have a more realistic sense of which races are winnable and with which candidates.

"Folks on the right, and frankly I'm one of them in terms of voting record, have to yield to the world as it is and not necessarily how they wish it would be," Cornyn told Reuters for a story about centrist Rep. Mike Castle's (R) bid for Senate next year in Delaware."

To which I replied:

Really? I wrote you earlier this year praising you for taking a more Conservative message. I voted for a Democrat for Senator last November for the first time ever based on your voting for the first Bailout. If you'll recall, I told you that only by acting like a Conservative did you have any hope of receiving my vote the next time you're up for election.

The reason, the ENTIRE reason the country is in the state it's in today, with Socialists and Leftists occupying the Whitehouse, House, and Senate (and soon the Supreme Court) is precisely because the Republican Party violated their Contract with America, and then swung hard left. Appeasement has not worked for the Israelis, and it sure as hell isn't going to work for the RNC.

New York found out recently what happens when you run a Republican that "can win", despite what their real non-Conservative past is - the so called Republican up and quits, sending their supporters to the Democrat.

If you are looking to lose yet more seats in November, I recommend you continue this idiotic course of running "moderates", also known as "people who are going to vote with the Leftists anyways". Conservatives are absolutely done voting for RINOs, we're done getting screwed by the people that are supposed to be on our side, and we're absolutely finished playing "the game" of voting for the lesser of two evils.

Go ahead, run RINOs, we'll be happy to put up our own candidates, and if that ends up losing the seat to a Democrat, at least we know for sure where they're going to stand on the issues we care about.

The jig is up, it's time to put your money with your mouth is and put up candidates with bold differences from the Democrats or we'll do it for you in the form of a third party. The continued relevance of the Republican Party is on the line, and you're playing house with the Democrats instead of coming up with a bold plan to regain the trust of your core constituencies.

Wake up and get in the game.

I've liked many of the things Cornyn has said (and done) recently, but an attitude such as this is what continues to play right into the Leftist's hands. I'm done voting for the Republican even though voting third party (or even voting Democrat) may put the Democrat in anyways. That little charade of a game has screwed us time and time again.

No more RINOs.
No more so called Republicans that vote with the Left.
No more "lesser of two evils".

No more, I'm done playing your game.
