Been saying for some time now that the politicians in Washington with a "R" after their names are not real republicans, that the original party platform has been corrupted. If they could kick out the RINOs and install small government conservatives, they had the best chance of helping to kick out the progressives from Washington.
Seems there is a move in this very direction! Texas Senator Dan Patrick has been making the rounds of all the talk shows that he can fit into this schedule with a movement that has been catching nation wide attention. He gets calls every day from legislators from other states interested in doing the same in their states. This website gets 40,000 hits a day. Check them out, you will be hearing more about this.
