Default RHINO vs Democrat

So SaltwaterSlick's comment, from sweating the Senate thread, got me thinking. If the vote came down to a RHINO vs dumbocrat (liberal) who would you choose? What about a RHINO vs yellow-dog democrat (old school democrat)?

For me, don't think I could ever vote for a dumbocrat. Concerning yellow-dog, a number of factors/issues would be involved: 1st & 2nd amendment stance, how close the Senate control is, and others.

In the primary, I'd vote for a true conservative and hopefully throw Cornyn out. In the general election against a socialist like Beto, I'd have to vote for the rino Cornyn if he won the primary.

case by case basis. I never see a democrats ideologies lining up with a conservative and while RINO is almost as bad at least they could be swayed even by arm twisting to vote the right way. Lesser of two evils if push came to shove I suppose. Thats not a tough option.

I will never vote for a Democrat no matter what he says his personal stance is on any subject. Once in office he will vote the same as all the other Democrats.

All democrats fall in line under Pelosi, who worships Barak.

Don't know of a DemoKraut in politics today that I could vote for... There are NO yeller-dogs left. Cornyn, as bad as he is is worlds better than Bet-0 (that a zero). My big beef with Cornyn is how he treated Ted Cruz as a jr. senator when he first came to Washington... Cruz hit the ground running to try to get things done that he promised he would do and Cornyn threw him under the bus and would not support him or his agenda/plans...

If Republicans were truly conservatives and would just stick together like the DemoKrauts always do, they could literally take over the gubment totally... Trouble is the RINO's and Right-wingers just won't get along... they are afraid of each other's ability to get and keep power... sad deal actually.

It’s irrelevent what a democrat record is or how they campaign because they all fall in line with their leadership once they get to DC.

Too bad a lot of our educators on here can't see that.

Never vote for a democrat, ever. If you keep to that then everything else will find its way.

When it comes to the main issues, they will tote the party line.

It's rather ironic how many democrats, especially in more conservative states, have to run on a "moderate" platform and distance themselves from the Nancy Pelosi's of the world. Heck, many of them don't even say they are a democrat in their campaign ads. With that said, think about the Kavanagh deal and how all of them would have voted.

Most of the Rhinos did what they needed to do at nut cutting time. Any moderate democrat would have voted the opposite.

That's why I will never vote for a democrat no matter how "moderate" or independent they claim to be.

not much difference in a rino vs dem, only reason to vote for the rino is to hold the majority and therefore the chairmanships of committees and such.
