I hear this term a lot. In fact, I’m not even sure what it’s supposed to mean anymore because some use it to mean “anyone who disagrees with a conservative no matter the issue” while to others it means someone who is literally a RINO who votes and thinks more along the lines of a staunch Democrat. Someone like Lincoln Chafee, for example. I tend to subscribe to the latter definition.
In my opinion, the definition of it has been watered down to the point where the word almost has no meaning anymore. Kind of like the word racist, which has been misused, abused, misrepresented, etc for as long as I can remember by left wing political opportunists.
So, let me step out of the way here and give the floor to you: What is your definition of “RINO”?
