>>>In any election in NYC a Democrat disguised as a Left Republican is probably superior to any Democrat who makes it to the nomination. That does not make him good, or even acceptable to decent folk, just better than the Democrat. Sometimes it is a case of the lesser of two horrors.
I keep hearing that when it comes time for elections and you have to choose between a RINO and a Dem.
I don't fully get that analogy though. How is supporting the left in infiltrating our party better? That needs to be squashed. If anything, I find it more of a threat. If we let the left infiltrate the conservative Republican party, then the parties become one.

" How is supporting the left in infiltrating our party better? "
What you have to realize is that this is a country of 50 states with a very wide range of political cultures.
We have the North East states and the West Coast, which are for the most part quite liberal, then we have the largely conservative heartland and the south.
What may be "conservative" in say New York., may be considwered liberal in the south.
As a political Party, we have 2 options: either write off the liberal states altogether, and keep running very solid conservatives, keep losing and be reduced to the fringes of politics in the liberal states, or run Republicans who are not quite so conservative, and be very competitive with the RATS in these states, like the Republican Party has been in New York, winning the office of mayor for 16 straight years.
It's a no brainier.
