Let me begin by apologizing to William Shakespeare for mis-using his quote, “a rose by any other name would smell as sweet…” and applying the phrase to RINOs. Neither Shakespeare nor the rose have ever done anything to deserve being associated with the likes of RINOs. I am sorry, but for the sake of the Union I have said this thing.
A RINO, as you know is a counterfeit Republican, he or she is a wolf in sheep’s clothing so to speak. Here at RINO List we believe that RINOs are more harmful to our country and our system of government than Socialists. Lining a few hundred or so of them up against a wall would be a good start.
To give you an idea of what kind of bad people RINOs are, here are a few synonyms for Republicans In Name Only:

Rascal – a base, dishonest, or unscrupulous person.

There are many, many more ways to describe a RINO, some of which I cannot repeat. Please feel free to use any of these the next time you find yourself in the company of a RINO and you need a pejorative that is not X rated, or if you need to explain what a RINO is to Bill O’Reilly.
