    RINOs and non-RINOs are all aligned with the Republican party. So, if the total number of Rs > Ds, then the Rs are the Majority and get to decide what bills can come up for vote and who runs each committee and has the majority on that committee. So, they are useful.

    The Ds struggle with AOC and Talilb, but they keep their civil war behind closed doors and find ways to keep them in line to vote with the Ds as a solid block. This way they do not look like the Rs currently do. This makes the Rs look immature, incompetent, and petty to the Indpendents who will decide the election. Then they wait for the handful of seats to arrive this election which will hand them the Majority. Then they will systematically screw everyone of the Rs who voted with the Ds as gleefully as they screw those who did not.

    They are playing the long game and smell complete victory should Biden eek out a win. Do not expect the Ds to make the same mistake they did under Obama when they had the Pres and both Houses. This time they WILL pass gun confiscation and national Abortion on Demand without the top cover of a constitutional amendment. And that's when you will see that the so called RINOs are really Rs who wished they had not destroyed their own party by demanding things that they cannot get with the current majority.

    If you love your team and what they stand for, then support them in the closing minutes of the game, rather than badmouthing the quarterback and coach as traitors working for the opposing team because they are throwing hail mary's to make deals to get what they can when they only have a slim majority with no hope of Biden signing their true dreams into law.

    If Trump wins and the Ds take the house, you will have investigation after investigation and no useful bills will reach Trump for signature. Not much better.
    What useful things have the R’s done having control of the house/committees? You can even go back to the Trump admin when they had the house and senate to list all of those victories if you’d like. The only thing most of the R’s are aligned with is the uniparty.

    Nope… playing nice and ‘go along to get along’ is what got us here… today… a crisis in our country

    ever hear of Boehner, Ryan, McCarthy? years and years of spineless-ness, greed and lying

    this ‘wait till next year‘ crap has got to end

    elect a leader of The House now… not a lyin’, spending, ‘dem-in-GOP clothes’

    I didn't think my post would have much effect. I'll be interested in who you complain about and blame if we loose the White House and the House. I will be blaming the Ds and any Rs who actually vote for gun confiscation.

    Maybe we made the same mistake that Ds did under Obama. But it seems to me to be totally different game now. If Rs get the House, Senate and Pres...then I don't think we should compromise either with liberty at stake. This is what we mean by "worry about this once we have a STRONG majority".

    Kind of like how Dade Phelan (R) ran the Texas House.....

    I will blame those that voted D, period

    .....even if the Ds they voted for had Rs by their name.

    We shouldn’t compromise ever. The RINO’s don’t view it as compromise though. They view it as achieving their goals.

    The point you’re missing is that by the time we get to the general election, most of the time we have already lost.
    Perhaps you can get Matt Gaetz to put your name up for House Speaker. The only way to get anything done is to own the house, senate and presidency and even then it is a crap shoot. Dumping Johnson does nothing.

    I’m still good with replacing him with someone else.

    He needs to go... NOW

    "Johnson was the deciding vote to kill an amendment to the renewal of section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) that would have required the federal government obtain a warrant to engage in surveillance of American citizens. Johnson’s FISA ploy did provide such warrant protections only for members of Congress — protections that Johnson did not deem necessary for hundreds of millions of Americans not currently serving in the United States Congress."

    Would have been more happy with Jim Jordan, but why not Rand Paul? Oh, yeah......he'll not only get zero support from the left, but also about half of those with an (R) behind their name will oppose him, i.e., the Mitt Romneys and his ilk since they're all a part of the greater establishment team.

    Senator Rand Paul should be Speaker of the House?
