Real Republican? Who are you to set yourself up as the judge of who is a real Republican and who is not? The Republican party is not just one monochrome swath of voters who march in lockstep like the Borg.<quoted text>
And there's your proof Republicans: Hanna is a Democrat running in a Republican Primary. Is that who we want representing our party in Congress. Vote for the real Republican. Let's take our party back!
Not all Republicans are hard right wing. Some are actually more moderate and able to reach across the aisle and work with the other side in order to advance legislation. Hanna is a moderate. Boehlert who served for 24 years in that position was a moderate. A moderate can be one who believes in Republican principles but understands that our country is a representative republic and not a pure democracy where the majority rules. With Democrats holding the White House and the Senate, the only way Republicans can advance any agenda is by reaching across the aisle in the spirit of compromise. Some believe it's better to get a piece of something rather than nothing. Moderates do that. Hard right wingers do not.
Hanna is not a Democrat nor have I ever seen any evidence that he said he would even consider switching parties This is just another fabrication from those who don't agree with his moderate philosophy and it simply isn't true. I'm all about proof. If someone can prove anything I say wrong then bring it on and I'll be happy to apologize.
The things Hanna stands for are listed on his campaign website. If you are against him and intellectually honest, take a look. After you've read where he stands on the important issues of the day please report back which you disagree with.
I doubt many will actually do this because it's just easier to parrot talking points.
