Skip to comments.An Open Letter to Mr. Jim Robinson
Posted on 04/25/2005 6:13:10 AM PDT by jveritas
What is happening to Free Republic Mr. Robinson? The Bush Haters and Republican Haters are getting louder and more daring by the hour. These phony conservatives who claim the Conservatism purity are savagely attacking President Bush and the GOP as bad as the worst liberals.
The Bash Bush feast is becoming a part of every thread. Everywhere you see Bush is a traitor, Bush wants to sell our sovereignty to Mexico, Bush is a liberal, Bush has no spine, Bush is destroying our economy, Bush is puppet in Vincent Fox hand, Bush is this Bush is that, everything wrong in this world is Bush fault.
Nothing but doom and gloom is coming from these phony conservatives. For them our economy is destroyed, liberals are controlling the government, the GOP will be finished by 2006, Mexico has invaded the US and changed its identity, China is superior to us, we are no more a superpower, and on and on and on. Every minor bump in the road is turned into a Mount Everest of catastrophe and disaster
Either Free Republic will remain the Premier political forum on the internet, a site to advance the real conservative cause and provide great and continuous support to our President Bush and the Republican Party, or it will be forum controlled by bitter and delusional phony conservatives who can never win on the ballot box, and come to FR to poison the atmosphere through their extreme kooky rhetoric and turn it into another Dummyland.
Enough is Enough.
I never get this philosophy either. Good Lord don't sit the election out, stomping your feet like a 4 YO. Push some real conservatives. Look at the spineless ones inhabiting the house now.
Liberalism may be a mental illness, but it cannot list "shy" among its numerous faults. Bush has to have some support from Congress to get conservative things done. If you absolutely can't support Bush over this issue, then find some local conservative firebrand and back him to the hilt. Then you'll be motivated to vote, then you'll see the choice between the GOP and the DNC on the top ballot, then you'll do the right thing.
Shhhh...they're dimming the lights.
We should not ban anyone but we should not let them control the site either.
That includes you
True trolls are knocked out quickly. What it seems you are seeking is elimination of a countervailing point of view.
Good. I'm tired of these chickensh!t crybabies who throw a "you guys are meanies I'm going home" tantrum and then walk off into their imaginary sunsets. That's BS.
BTW, nothing has happened to Free Republic. We're right here. Right where we've always been. Now, some things have not gone our way, but that's nothing new. And some people are mighty ticked off about it, but that's their right. I'm ticked off about a few things myself, but I'm not going to call for revolution and I'm not willing to turn it over to the Democrats. Gonna hang tough with Bush & Co and fight for our conservative judges and fight for a more conservative congress in '06. The immigration thing will work itself out. Shoot, the Minutemen already have the problem about half solved. This too will pass.
Which I put right back into the economy. His spending is out of control though. He grew the government faster than Clinton did, and everyone here was complaining about his spending, Bush shouldn't get a pass because he is a republican. Remember, he does work for us and the values that we, as republicans, believe. If we don't complain and let our voice be heard loud and clear, the people with their hands out asking for more, will get it and that is NOT what conservatism is about.
And that's vanilla stupid.
Great to hear this Jim.
I suggest we ban everyone that doesn't agree 100%.
Saw a report on NBC last night that spoke about a town in Georgia that takes in 90 illegals every day. Every day. Huh?
I have no idea what you're talking about. Vote For Pedro!
(If what I just wrote makes you sad or angry,
Gee, I never realized that my GOP registration prohibited me from criticizing Bush when he was wrong. I'm gonna have to go back and read the fine print.
Sorry, dude, but Bush is dead wrong on many of his stances on immigration, and he was way off-base with his attack on the Minutemen Project. But, true to form, you attack prinicpled conservatives because they have the nerve to disagree with Bush.
You're a fool, quite frankly, as is Bush. If he doesn't come around on immigration, it could sink the GOP in 2006 and 2008.
This is why you are running the show and not the JR wannabees.
Personally, I never get so much fun as discussing/arguing a subject with someone that disagrees with me.
Naw, we'll just be a lot more selective in the primaries. I mean really 'protect our borders litmus test' selective.
I'd offer more, but for the last few months I have been typing with an overriding fear of assault. Hell, I even made my wife push the "post" button for # 26. ;)
The Mexican border issue has many facets: oil deposits, China's largess in our backyard, Hispanic votes, the Bible, inexpensive labor, grassroots vs. top down. I'm not judging Bush harshly on it yet, as I suspect he's got some powerful resources focusing on the larger picture...
Ummmmm, The President cannot cut taxes and he cannot give me more OF MY OWN MONEY.
AND YOU ARE A CONSERVATIVE?
This is a comedy thread right? It's all a put on right?
Whew, for a second you had me there, I thought you were serious!
Good grief. Why are you whining to JimRob? Get on the threads and put those folks in their place. Running crying to the forum's owner because you don't agree with people's opinions is pretty lame.
You can't raise the eater count without providing an extra bag of popcorn - Get with the program, whydoncha? ;-P
Owl, I never knew you were such a flashy dancer.
Is that better? ;-)
What we have here... Is a failure to communicate!!!
Your own money was taken by the government and President Bush gave you some back.
No, he allows me to KEEP more of my own $
"....as I suspect he's got some powerful resources focusing on the larger picture..."
Yes he does have a "larger picture"..............it's called the NEW WORLD ORDER!!!
You ever eat bush bake beans.
I mean they are just insane, but I can understand every talks about them.
Then he did a very good thing, isn't it!
I started out My political life campaigning for Barry Goldwater. I don't need to validate My party loyalty. When I don't like the way We are going, however, the party is going to hear from Me. This is one of those times. I say nothing on this forum that I would not say, in person, to President Bush, in fact, I have said a lot of it, to Jeb, in a phone conversation a number of years ago. Part of the conversation involved My opinion that We were going to lose the election if We didn't cut the crap, and guess who was right?
I see no reason for importing people, who, upon attaining citizenship, are going to vote against most of what I hold sacred, I likely won't be around long, but My Kids and Grandkids will.
If We do not stop the trend toward liberalism, the next step is an ungovernable society, and tyranny. It may be inevitable anyway, but I will have no part in creating the situation.
The only reasons I am not out patrolling the border are that I am not healthy and young enough, and My old Jeep is unlikely to make it that far.
As far as Second Amendment issues go, things have already gone too far to be considered constitutionally proper, and if Republicans will not defend the Constitution, who will?
I am just one of the hidden Redneck Republicans, but just as much aboard as any of You CEO folks. I have dreams about the future of My Kids, just like You do, and I'll be Damned before I can't speak out when I have an opinion. I suspect that everyone here still has to put on one sock at a time, but if I'm wrong I'd like to see a demonstration.
A minute ago you said he had the power to tax and untax. So he IS the government according to you.
I don't need the elite taking my money and then giving it back to me in order to garner my political support. Children fall for such nonsense.
The only reason SOME (as in me) of us libertarian Freepers voted for "Shrub" in the first place is that he ran against to versions of the same RAT Frankenstein (Gore and Kerry). Had he been challenged by, say someone like Zell Miller, he'd be back in Crawford Texas now, lamenting his old DUI ticket, his non-service to ACTIVE duty during a time when the country needed him, and his lack of gonads about the real issues facing America. Bush, IMHO, is a warmed-over version of his old man (the only mistake that Saint Ronald Reagan ever made was giving the Herbert Walker "Read-My-Lips Voodoo Economics" Bush's a foot inside the door of the WH, thereby establishing a legacy where Junior and Jeb can show their real color--yellow--and bow out when courage is needed--i.e. Terry Shiavo).
This sounds so much like the things people were saying in 1998.
Also 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004.
"OK, then. This is now in Chat, so I doubt that many will post to this thread. Too bad."
Swept it under the rug, out of sight out of mind. So long as the checks keep rolling in the topic is irrelevant.
You never seemed libertarian when you were pumping McCain and his very-unlibertarian CFR proposals.
What a fabulous marketing ploy!!!
What was it Will Durant used to say? "I never met a kook I didn't like"?
So this molting pot is in ANOTHER meltdown.
Lava never knows.
Bring in the comfy chAir and the moUlage-takers!!!
The amount the government takes, IMO, is less important than what the government spends. What good did it do to get a tax break when spending increased massively? Sooner or later, that needs to be paid for, either by me or by future generations.
Bush has had four primary failings:
1 - increased federal government involvement in education
2 - failure to increase border security or deal with illegal immigration
3 - runaway spending
4 - the Medicare prescription drug benefit, which made our entitlement crisis worse, not better.
Those are not trivial matters. And he needs to hear that he was wrong - especially on #2, which is a serious threat to our safety and a failure to carry out his proper, constitutional duties. The other three are usurpations of federal power - but borders are a fundamental federal responsibility.
No, part of it's me.
I keep plasterin' this stupid green guy w/a cigar on a lotta threads.
I know it's a pointless use of bandwidth that could be better used combatting the socialists every single micronanosecond.
It's contributing to the fall of conservativism, and I can't allow these mean people to let you and W take the rap alone.
I'll try to do better.
