Murkowski is not a team player

The Republicans, in essence, do not control the Senate. News commentators and talk show hosts have it all wrong about the Senate being a Republican majority. Excuse me, America, but the Democrats continue to control the Senate, as they also dominate the news media.


For example, Sen. John McCain, Sen. Susan Collins, and Sen. Lisa Murkowski are Republican In Name Only (RINO) politicians. Essentially, they’re Democrats. As one counts these in the ledger, that puts the Democrats in majority. Other RINOs, in my opinion, include Sen. Thad Cochran and Sen. Lindsey Graham.

We’ve heard the phrase “wolves in sheep clothing”, or how about the chameleon, a small slow-moving Old World lizard with a prehensile tail, long extensible tongue, protruding eyes that rotate independently, and a highly developed ability to change color. RINOs seem to have this ability. Run on conservative issues, and oppose conservative values once elected.

In reference to Sens. McCain, Collins and Murkowski, and the recent Obamacare repeal vote, I have a question. Were any of you ever involved in sports? Did you ever play on a team? Coaches stress the word “teamwork”. Teamwork helps a team function more efficiently and effectively. A team wins together, or loses together. I know that Sen. McCain heard the word teamwork while in the U.S. Navy. So what’s happened since? Were they not elected as Republicans? True, but they play like Democrats.

America elected a president with an agenda to move America forward again. Team players support that agenda.
