Tea Party RINO

On the way to work this morning a co-host of some local radio station made an interesting point I thought. While "Republican In Name Only" traditionally meant a Liberal Republican, and therefore one who didn't really belong in the party, as the GOP nowadays seems to just want to be Democrat Lite, then to be a Republican is to be a moderate Progressive. Making me not a real Republican. Now I'm the RINO.

There are also the founding principles of the country, to which the GOP occasionally lays claim, and the party platform.
But we really do need a second major party in this country.
