    Can the RNC kick someone out of the party and keep them from misidentifying as republican?

    Well, I've not seen anyone I would label as a true Republican in quite some time so the burden of proof would be problematic...

    There was a nazi that got on the RNC ballot last election. It was one of the northern cities. RNC was able to litigate a few elections previous but he somehow slipped through that time.

    That would be like asking a surgeon or doctor to testify against another surgeon or doctor unless the MD in question was an extremely bad actor. Even then it is hard to get them to break their ranks.

    The Thin Blue Line is the same way, so it will be interesting to see how such cases will play out in the future. Even in light of new laws that criminalize protecting the bad actors who everyone knows exist in the ranks.

    I do wish that the Republican Party would get rid of the RINO Mitt Romney since he has been a huge wart on their backside for a very long time.

    Doctors testify against doctors all the time, how do you think malpractice cases proceed?

    They could certainly not help with their campaign and even support an opponent in the primaries. They can even sling mud at them, the media would love to air something like that.

    I have a very distinct memory about a case involving an anesthesiologist who killed a 7 year old boy during a bilateral Tympanotomy and Tuboplasty, a normally 20-35 minute procedure. Joe had the incredibly bad habit of right after he would put the patient to sleep and he got everything settled he would sit down and fall asleep, sometimes snoring even. The boy went hyperthermic and did not make it off the table.

    The trial took several years. I remember reading about the prosecution complaining that even though they had learned about Joe’s tendency to fall asleep during surgeries that they were having great difficulty getting anyone to testify to that. About a year and a half later the prosecution was finally able to secure testimony that there was quite a list of surgeons who would not let Joe pass gas for their patients specifically because of this issue. Interesting thing was that even while this was coming out in court was that there were still some surgeons who were testifying that they have never seen this happen and referred many patients to Joe for their anesthesia needs. (I still laugh that anyone could say such blatant BS under oath since Joe ALWAYS fell asleep at the switch.)

    Joe was eventually (several years after the fact) found guilty of something innocuous sounding and totally unrelated to what actually happened. The reason that I remember this case so clearly was that I knew Joe, and he was a pompous, arrogant POS who had the bedside mannerisms of a jackhat, and he did always fall asleep. How he was not found guilty of murder I will never understand. He did loose his medical license, small compensation. I wonder if the boys parents were ever able to collect an award for their loss. I can’t imagine that his malpractice covers death as a result of gross misconduct.

    This case happened right after I left healthcare about 28 years ago. And it seemed like it took 4 or so years for the criminal trial to be decided.

    Now granted, this case is an extreme example, but between that and how much bad stuff that I have seen in healthcare, I am a bit jaded.

    Two things, civil is much different than criminal. There will always be outliers.

    And the threshold is considerably lower for civil cases. But since he wasn’t practicing medicine anymore, I don’t know that he will have a lot of assets left after this whole legal thing. And there is a big difference between winning a settlement and collecting that award.

    In Joe’s case, after his license was suspended here in Co. he tried to sneak off to Cali and practice medicine there, but someone figured out who he was and dropped a dime. Cali yanked his license there post haste. He came back to Colorado and tried to sell real estate.

    I ran into him on the phone at some point after that looking for another property/project. In the OR Joe never had anything nice to say to or about anyone who was “under” him; even lying about and screwing folks whenever he could benefit from it. But now he was all trying to suck up to me and be a friend, let’s just say that I left him no doubt about how much I despised him.

    I get as angry with the rinos as the rest of you guys but you win by getting more votes. Any body who votes with us most of the time is sort of on our side. If they go to the dim side they will almost never vote our way. If we drive a rino out of office and they are replaced by a dim that is a loss for us. If we can replace a rino with a conservative that is a win. Replacing a dim with a conservative is a big win.

    They can identify as whatever they want. Party can cut off money.

    They can be opposed by a third party candidate who has RNC support.
    There was an anti-gun RINO running against an anti-gun democrat in Vermont many years ago, so the GOP and the NRA backed a little-known young Socialist who promised to oppose waiting periods. He won, and he is still in office, and although he became very anti-gun, he still opposes waiting periods. His name is Bernie Sanders.

    Be careful what you wish for.

    Two different subjects but Ill bite.
    The officers have to be able to recognize the bad act of the other officer. Excessive force isn’t usually clear cut and is very subjective . In actual corruption cases, the corrupt people tend to hide their corrupt activities and are reported when if they don’t. 90% of all calls to internal affairs are made by other cops. Suspicion by other cops isn’t enough to act on. Why would another cop want to get close enough to a corrupt cop to see if the suspicion is true because then they will or can caught up in the punishment that comes down when caught. Almost every single corruption case against cops dragged in innocent cops as defendants along with the guilty. I can give dozens of examples off the top of my head.

    As far as Romney, why would one kick him out of the party . We can have disagreements with in the party and be stronger for it. I remember when some said the same thing about Rand Paul. We have the “R” next to Romney’s name and it helps us keep majority control in the senate. Get rid of Romney, it gives people like Susan Collins more power as a swing vote. Why would we do that.

    Maybe in a roundabout way by withholding reelection campaign funds? Just a conversation point, I have no idea.
