Conservatives should be encouraged by events of the last month or so. So far two RINO Republican Senators have announced that they will not seek reelection in 2018.
Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, who sports a solid ‘F’ Liberty Score, announced on September 26 that he is packing it in.
For those unfamiliar, the Conservative Review “Liberty Score” is a letter grade, ranging from A to F, signifying a legislators’ conservative voting record. A is a Constitutionalist, ala Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and F is a RINO, ala too many Republicans to name.
Despite what Corker said when he first won his Senate seat – that he couldn’t imagine serving more than two terms – I believe he wouldn’t have considered retirement should Hillary have won.
As we witnessed over the last several years, it’s much easier to fake being a real Republican when a democrat is in the White House. How many ObamaCare repeal bills were passed through both Houses? It’s virtually effortless to look conservative when you know Obama will just veto every measure.
