The Empire Strikes Back: Former Rep. Steve LaTourette, R-Ohio, has promised to raise $8 million to defeat the Tea Party wherever he can. “Hopefully we’ll go into eight to 10 races and beat the snot out of them,” LaTourette told National Journal. “We’re going to be very aggressive and we’re going to get in their faces.”These "moderates" are the establishment guys who have always stood with the Rockefeller Republicans. They are happy to bail out bankers, compromise with the lives of the vulnerable, and they have nothing but contempt for the grass roots. It is why Republicans can no longer win national elections. They stand for nothing. The DemocRATS, on the other hand, know exactly what they stand for and never waiver. They happily support abortion, pornography, same sex marriage, and every other imaginable evil. I will NEVER vote for a "moderate" Republican again. It is a wasted vote. Not only that, but they are willing to sacrifice the most vulnerable to protect their own sorry selves. God help us, what a tragedy to see this once great country falling to the likes of these pathetic politicians.
