Purging RINO's from the republican party is divine intervention. If they get rid of enough of them, I might consider returning to the republican party.

IMO this tactic makes no sense at all. Not saying I do not understand it.

The actual best way to deal with a RINO is to recognize they have value and a lot of it --- HOWEVER, you have to place enough other folks around them that they can go with the majority. RINOs are slimy pragmatists, which is a far better category than slimy socialist.

Having a majority with 10 RINOs will have all ten RINOs voting conservative.

Now fighting like heck to ensure a RINO is not elected in a place where a conservative is a viable candidate is a really good idea, mandatory in fact. Like getting McCain gone for example. The other side of the coin is a Republican from Massachusetts, that is fine, why do you want him out when the only other possibility is a John Ketry wannabe

I understand not having blind allegiance. Like not voting for a RINO for President I agree is rational and a good move. Not supporting the party because some extremely Dem state elects a Republican who leans left or that the state GOP runs such a candidate is not going to help anything you believe in IMO
