The "Accused" RINOs section in the article

I think the section entitled "accused RINOs" should have references and/or should be eliminated lest it become a platform for internet users to vent. PheasantHunter 00:28, 25 July 2007 (EDT)

Lincoln Chafee

His article actually lists him as a liberal, so would we consider him a centrist here? DanH 17:20, 30 July 2007 (EDT)

Yes, based upon party affiliation. A centrist is by definition someone can can work with either liberals or conservatives, and he does exactly that. RobS 17:25, 30 July 2007 (EDT)

Ron Paul

I added Ron Paul because he seems like more of a Libertarian than a Republican. His ideas are far too 'out there' versus a traditional Republican.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by LibertyorDeath (talk)

I reverted you simply because I can see a lot of people disagreeing with you - so try waiting for a reaction before you post again--IDuan 18:33, 10 January 2008 (EST)

I agree that Ron Paul sould be up there as one of the "RINO's." Ron Paul is not a real Republican. His views are much more libertarian then conservative. He votes Liberatiarn in Presidential Elections, and say's he won't support any of the GOP 2008 candidates. Paul distances himself with Republicans on Homeland Security, Iraq, the death penalty and the War on Terror. So I guess that would make him a "Republican in Name Only." Chippeterson

Paul himself says that he is more Republican than the rest of the Republican party. He eschews the lable of libertarian as well, calling himself a "true" conservative. Does that make him a RINO or every other Republican a RINO? I don't know. HelpJazz 15:36, 22 January 2008 (EST)

Cafeteria conservatives

If a person holds a conservative position on some issues and a liberal position on others, would that make him a cafeteria conservative? Wouldn't that make him a cafeteria liberal as well? Gillespie 18:52, 10 January 2008 (EST)

Mitt Romney

Isn't Mitt Romney running as a conservative? Learn together 00:42, 13 January 2008 (EST)

Hyperbole

The statement "RINOs and Reform Democrats typically come from New England states where corrupt Democrat political machines do not allow dissent and opposition so reformers have difficulty gaining ballot access..." seems like unsourced hyperbole to me. I didn't add a fact tag, because I've been reverted a lot lately.. HelpJazz 15:37, 22 January 2008 (EST)

Related to that part of the article, maybe I'm missing something, but how much influence could a Democratic party machine have over who the Republican nominee is? And wouldn't they use any influence to have the least centrist candidates nominated, to reduce the Republican chances of winning in a majority Democratic state?--Frey 15:00, 8 March 2008 (EST)

John McCain

Considering his views on Global Warming and his eagerness to reach across the aisle to his Democrat buddies, shouldn't John McCain be considered a RINO? CMcFreeze

Mark Sanford

Would the recent behaviours of Mark Sanford qualify him as a RINO? If so please add it for me on the list. Thank you for your time. ChuckK 22:03, 24 June 2009 (EDT)

  • No, it wouldn't qualify him as a RINO. The reason being, one the vast majority of issues, in spite of his moral lapses, he supports/agrees with the RNC. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 22:06, 24 June 2009 (EDT)
