Rockefeller Republican - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
From the article you linked:

Many analysts have said that the "Rockefeller Republican" became extinct on Election Day in 2006 when the last "Rockefeller Republican" (Lincoln Chafee) lost his seat in the Senate. Today most people who would be considered "Rockefeller Republicans" have left the Republican Party and joined the Democratic Party.
Since the article you quote directly contradicts your claim, I have no idea what you are talking about.

The UN is a waste, the US should have pulled out of it a decade ago.

Or are so called "moderates" "Rockefeller Republicans" were for big government entitlement programs, both social and business.
Conservatives and Libertarians want neither.
It say many, not all analysts. It also mentions that Senators Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine are sometimes referred to as Rockefeller Republicans. The term is archaic since most voters have no idea who Nelson Rockefeller was.

The UN is anti-American, anti-capitalist, and anti-semitic and has become a bastion of collectivists. The UN has become as toothless as the League of Nations, and as irrelevant.
