The below tweet remined us of these lyrics to a song by Stealer Wheel, “Clowns to the left of me. Jokers to the right.” It seems like déjà vu all over again.
Senate Republicans are undermining an almost certain Red Wave in November by selling out on guns and amnesty for illegals. Only a stupid party would allow this to happen. They need to be stopped.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll. On Tuesday, June 21st, 2022 the Biden Approval Index History shows that 40% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Biden’s job performance. Fifty-nine percent (59%) disapprove. The latest figures include 19% who Strongly Approve of the job Biden is doing and 49% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -30.
QUESTION: Why are Senate republicans caving on gun rights and giving illegal aliens amnesty?
ANSWER: They aren’t big “R” republicans.
President Ronald Reagan during his 1966 campaign for Governor of California offered what he called the 11th Commandment. The 11th Commandment reads: Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.
Well, it seems that the time is now to violate Reagans’ 11th Commandment.
The Bottom Line
In our June 9th, 2022 column “It’s not that they have an ‘R’ behind their names it’s how they actually vote that counts!” we wrote:
We have learned over time that politicians who claim to be a republican once elected don’t vote like a big “R” Republican. The Florida News Report editorial board got this message and showed how little “r’s” say one thing then do the exactly the opposite when introducing or voting on legislation.
Florida News Report editorial board explains that the real election day is the mid-term primaries. The Editorial Board noted,
Republican voters only get one shot at purging the Republican Party of RINOs each election year and that date comes early – the August Primary election.
But most Republican voters don’t participate…. the Republican voter turnout is only around 30%. It is on August 23rd Republican voters decide the direction of the party when they choose between:
- A RINO Establishment candidate who doesn’t adhere to the Republican Party Platform
- A Republican constitutional conservative candidate who embraces the Republican Party Platform
Do you have some Republican friends you can influence to actually go vote on August 23rd?
Do it like your life depends on it. Because it does. When elected Republicans pass Democrat policies, your rights are immediately reduced. From gun rights to Covid restrictions, this is no joke.
August 23rd is your Election Day.
It’s the primaries stupid! Get out and vote for a “BIG Rs” on August 23rd!
