Goodbye Freerepublic...
vanity

Posted on 04/15/2012 6:13:13 PM PDT by djl_sa

I can tell that Freerepublic has started spiraling into hysteria similar to what I sensed around the 2008 election time.... I'll check back in in 2013 to see if things simmered down.

"Censorship reflects a society's lack of confidence in itself. It is the hallmark of an authoritarian regime..." --Justice Potter Stewart, dissenting Ginzberg v. United States, 383 U.S. 463 (1966)

I never can remember where I found my freeper number. Good thing I put it on my profile page. I just noticed we can have freeper email addresses. I never noticed that before. Turned it on just for fun. I already use an email forwarder so any message sent to my freeper address (apparently zeugma@freerepublic.com) will bounce around the world a few times before it reaches me.

So conservative principles murdered millions?

Or just exactly why are you trying to draw a moral equivalancy between principled conservatives and the Pol-Pots and Stalins of the world?

Because it's bogus.

Most people who invite others to their home do not then ask their guest to pay their mortgage.

You're going to pay to enjoy the goods and services of any fine eatery, but get out of hand and the owner has every right to throw you out of his establishment.

No different here.

Go to the News/Activism page and look up top. Click where it says ‘account’, and your stats are there. Here’s mine:

I’m coming up on my fifth anniversary here, so I guess that’s respectable.

Individuals and private entities have a right and a responsibility to sensor to keep things in line with what they believe in. The government should not. If you don't like the direction of censorship, than by all means, go somewhere that is compatible with who you are. You won't find another place like FR, with folks as interesting, funny and accurate about so many things. Most of us are pretty capable of debating with others about ideas and beliefs that are not exactly our own. Many of us are somewhere in the same ballpark and fairly tolerant of others, except those who are out trolling for trouble.

"Put simply, we ally with evil all the time for the greater good and I am not against having done any of that. I think the same applies very often in politics."

That's true, and I've done it myself. I remember voting for McCain in 2008, but really I was voting for Sarah. However, there's a limit, a line you just can't make yourself cross. For me, Romney is that line. I watched the 2002 video of that smarmy liar saying he would make it easy for minor girls to get a judge's permission for an abortion---behind their parents' backs. And then five years later he was saying he had "always" been pro-life.

I just don't think I could wash myself clean enough after voting for him.

"You're right about fear and knee jerk, emotional reactions to Jim's clear and clarion messages. He said little new that he hasn't said repeatedly for years. He merely added more and recent examples of Romney's treachery."

This is what I don't understand. I lurked here for three years, and I'm very well aware of Jim's longstanding opinion of Romney. It was made clear long ago. So what did these folks expect? That he would do a 180 and suddenly begin to support Romney, putting the lie to everything he's said in the past? Really??

"You're also right about TV News and radio. FReepers would be better served reading FR. I do. I have stopped watching Fox and all but stopped listening to Rush. (I occasionally hear his show from the kitchen where DrO listens). I am much happier and much better informed. "

Same here, Onyx. I haven't listened to Rush in a couple of weeks, and if Romney becomes the nominee, I won't be listening to much talk radio at all until the election is over. It isn't that I don't love Rush and Mark Levin. But they will have to get behind Romney and push him, for reasons I understand, and it really won't be pleasant to hear.

Simply put: Yes. Many, many FReepers have done that very same thing now that the numbers are turning out for Romney. Sadly the idea of conservatives having principles is, more and more, giving way to conservatives having a party affiliation.

I wish I was surprised by the number of "conservatives" who said just months or weeks ago that they couldn't support Romney but who now are. Even our side is turning squishy. To me, that's what disheartens me the most. We can't win if we don't bother to fight.

its discourgaging isn't it....I hope the sheeple can pull themselves together to get rid of bamey, but heck, then these people can really complain for the following 4 yrs, when guns are taken away, national id cards implemented,silencing of conservative talk radio, and a forced draft, as well as continued subserviance to muslims, homosexuals, and illegals....

hey, maybe its their investment in righteous indigantion which can be so satisfying in a tyranny.


Then why would you be promoting a guy like Mitt Romney, a lying, left-wing, Progressive Liberal that the only thing inevitable about him, is that he guarantees an Obama re-election exactly because of this lying, left-wing, Progressive Liberal record.

The media and Obama have treated Romney with kid's gloves. If God frowns on us and allows Romney to be our nominee, Obama and the media will use Romney's own record like a club upside his head, 24/7, to utterly destroy his candidacy.

Just a small part of Romney's record:

Yep. I have no idea about the number of those FReepers, but several were under the mistaken thinking or emotion, that Jim would be ABO, and that's never going to be the case when it comes to Romney, and God bless him for it.

Everyone here should know precisely the principles upon which Free Republic was built and emphatically stands, and in turn, should easily see than Romney is the anathema to all.

Sorry to see them prematurely leave, given that the liberal, liar abortionist hasn't even successfully bought the nomination yet, but good to know that most were Party Firster's and not actually conservatives. The GOP-E counts on folks like them to rally 'round their moderate's every 4 years.

We did it in '08 because of Sarah Palin. NOT this year, provided they're successful. (Still praying and almost non-stop).

God bless and keep you!
