We recognize that the Idaho GOP Platform is a remarkable platform, but that too few Republican Party apparatchiks and elected officials adhere to it.
We recognize that there is NO difference between a Republican In Name Only (RINO) and a Democrat. None. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Voting for a RINO is exactly the same as voting for a Democrat.
We understand that continuing to elect RINOs hoping that “things will be different this time,” or claiming that “I have to vote for the lesser of two evils” is nothing more than the definition of insanity as applied to politics.
We realize that the only thing motivating otherwise conservative voters to support RINOs is their fear of the Democrat.
We recognize that relying on the the education model of political change is a failed strategy. Too few people are getting educated to make a difference. Too many are the product of public schools, where the only education they have is what the political Left spoon fed to them.
We realize that the only thing politicians understand is political defeat. Period. We realize that the only things the voting public responds to are 1) Greed: "What can government do for me?" and, 2) Fear: "Oh My God! The Democrat might win!"
We owe no allegiance to any political party or particular candidates. Political parties are a means to an end, not an end unto themselves.
We do not wish to destroy the GOP - only to reforge it.
We will never vote for one candidate out of fear of the opposition. Instead, we will weaponize fear and use it against RINOs.
We realize that, at some point, conservatives will have to risk it all to win it all. We believe that when the average voter says, “we have to hold their feet to the fire,” the average voter is bluffing. We aren’t bluffing.
We have tried everything else. We tried voting for the lesser of two evils. All we got was evil. We tried bipartisanship. All we got was betrayal. We tried playing by the rules. All we got was ruled out.
When it comes to a battle between a RINO and a Democrat, we will work to defeat the RINO, even if it means a Democrat victory. No prisoners. No quarter. No second chances. Our standards are high. We won’t accept political excuses, nuanced answers or rhetorical doubletalk.
