At the outset, I declare it can be done. But, if all goes according to the RINOs’ plan, 2016 will be a banner year for the Democrats, though they think they are working for victory. Next year, Republicans will have to defend 24 seats in the Senate vs. only 10 for the Dems. Right now, the GOP has a plurality of only 8 votes over the Dems. In the House, all 435 seats are up for election; Repubs have a plurality of 57 votes.
The apparent RINO platform for 2016 is not that they fought the Democrats, after winning the Senate, not that they at least tried to stop Obama’s depredations on the Nation and its constitution; their platform will be the thrilling affirmation that they worked with Democrats to give Obama what he wanted, at every turn. That’s a real impetus for the base to stay home on Election Day, and for the independents to do the same.
Let’s face it: voting for Republicans just hasn’t worked out. Since 2010, we’ve handed them the House, a substantial majority of state houses and last November, the Senate. What did we, the voters get? When Republicans were a minority, they said they could do nothing; now they’re in the majority and they still do nothing.
