I keep hearing people call Republican politicians “Republicans in Name Only” or “RINOs” for short, and claiming that these politicians and candidates are somehow not true Republicans because they support socialist positions. However, it seems to have gotten to the point where pretty much every politician from the GOP is leaning to the left, and the majority of them seem to be falling into the “RINO” category.
At some point, you begin to realize that the mainstream of the party’s leadership is moving to the left. I will point out that I have not called myself a Republican for years. I didn’t leave the Republican Party. The Republican Party left me.
