(DIERSEN: Politics is nasty. RINOs are nasty. I should write a book about RINO candidates on ballots in my precinct since 2000, their major donors, their campaign consultants, their fundraisers, their campaign managers, their campaign staff members, and their campaign volunteers who have made it the most clear that they did not want my help. They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I am “too conservative” and that because of that, the more that I tried to help candidates (distributed their campaign literature in my precinct, displayed their signs on my front yard, got sign locations for them in my precinct, etc.), the fewer votes that those candidates would get. I would focus on the aforesaid who hinted/implied/argued/shouted the most that I am a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things who should be gotten rid of once and for all. Better yet, I should sue them.)
