    Here's a small sampling of why conservatives think Cantor is a RINO:

    Mark Levin (conservative radio talk show host) explains why Cantor's support of the 'Violence Against Women Act' is troubling:

    "We are not fooled by the title on this law," Levin said. "We are not fooled that aspects of it are unconstitutional and were ruled unconstitutional in the year 2000. And we are not fooled by the breadth of this law, which includes people who are not women, which confers jurisdiction in some cases to Indian tribes, which expands immigration for more illegal immigrants; and which has such ambiguous and vague language as 'emotional distress' or 'using unpleasant speech.'

    These are not mutually exclusive assessments, are they?

    Give people some time. People still need to mend their cognitive dissonance of what just happened with Cantor.

    After all, he is the first Majority Leader, since a century ago, to lose his seat to a "nobody."

    One of the most powerful representatives got booted out.

    The difference between a Republican, Conservative, and RINO.

    Poll: As Hillary Clinton re-enters politics, her numbers drop

    It's easy to poll well when you can sit on the side lines and not take a position on anything like she was able to do as Sec. State.

    There was a run-off election in Mississippi for the senate seat between Chris McDaniel (tea-party) and the rino Thad Cochran. To give you an idea of why I despise rinos, here's what Cochran did: he solicited help from 35,000 Democrat voters using robo calls that played the race card (claiming that tea partiers are obstructing Obama because he's black).

    Here we have a Republican urging Democrats to vote in a Republican primary (it's illegal if they already voted in the Democratic primary) and using the race card against a fellow Republican. Unbelievable.

    And he did so with the full support and connivance of the Republican establishment. Oh, but his handlers expect the 'racist extremists' (the majority of Republican voters) to now vote for him in the general election. Some will, in pursuit of a Senate majority (rendered pointless if they don't listen to you, anyway), but I suspect that more will stay home or leave the slot blank than is commonly believed-this may in fact result in a Democratic victory (its a racially polarized electorate, a 'safe' Republican state with a minimal Democratic threshold of around 40%, probably closer to 45%)

    This was the straw that broke the camel's back, for me....I'm no longer a self-described Republican who considered himself as belonging to one faction of the coalition, the party leadership has made it abundantly clear that Constitutional and fiscal conservatives are viewed as a more hated enemy than Democratic policies. I can't even count on them to fight against abuses of power and institutional corruption at the IRS if they share the same enemies as the bureaucrats in control.

    Evidence of illegal double voting from many Democrat voters:

    In Mississippi, a Democrat can only vote in the senate race run-off if he didn't vote in the Democratic primary, but photographic evidence has emerged that show double-voting from many, many Dems:

    I am shocked and shaken to the core to find out that now Democrats cheat, too. You should gerrymander them into oblivion!
