Free Republic, Thank You And Good Bye
September 15 2010 | jveritas

Posted on 09/15/2010 6:20:00 PM PDT by jveritas

I asked Jim Robinson today to delete my account on Free Republic. He asked me to post an opus so some folks would not think that I was banned for no reason. Here is my brief opus:

Thank you Free Republic and Good Bye. This was an excellent forum for many years but now I do not think it is so in my humble opinion. The trend where the forum is going is very clear to me and I do not want to be part of it.

For all the Freepers with whom I have had good relationship and great discussions I want to thank you for all the good time we had together on this forum.

God Bless America and Our Brave Troops.

PS: Now Jim Robinson can ban my account.

You mean because it's moving away from mindless cheerleading for the guys with an "R" behind their name?

I don’t think I’ve ever had any major issues with you.

In any case, don’t forget to remove the rectal implant.

That's exactly why he's taking a hike.
Good riddance.

It is a perversion of terms to say that a charter gives rights. It operates by a contrary effect — that of taking rights away. Rights are inherently in all the inhabitants; but charters, by annulling those rights, in the majority, leave the right, by exclusion, in the hands of a few . . . They . . . consequently are instruments of injustice.
The fact, therefore, must be that the individuals, themselves, each, in his own personal and sovereign right, entered into a compact with each other to produce a government: and this is the only mode in which governments have a right to arise, and the only principle on which they have a right to exist.

As I recall, he was a member of the Howlin/Peach/nopardons brigade. I'm only surprised he didn't run off to MadIvan's (now defunct?) forum in 2008.

He forgot Ghandi's admonition upon seeing a mob of Indians running down the street as he rose to join them "There go my people, I must follow them for I am their leader"

I am purely in union with Ghandi on this point ~

Hey, despite our butting heads, I’ll miss you. Your support of our warriors was always top notch, as well as your support of the country with your countless hours of arabic translations!

I’d suggest you come back after the primary season is over. With any luck, we’ll all be on the same team again.

I’m sorry to see you go. I’ve seen your name here for years.

Could you let us ‘less informed’ members know what caused you to decide to leave?

It would be helpful to know what went into your decision.

Is there anything we could do to help? You have to know when there are any big events going on FR is one of the best places to turn to for information. But you know that already.

We’d really like to know more about your reasons. Thank you.

Yep, I agree about the direction. It is quickly becoming a chat room with no etiquette, or lost fr etiquette. The youtube stuff, and the blogpimps are tough to deal with. Good luck!

Thanks for explaining so clearly the reasons behind your departure. We may not all agree with your reasoning, but at least nobody will be left wondering why you requested deletion.

Good luck to you!

Odd development, just when the previously silent conservative majority in the GOP are FINALLY beginning to make themselves heard.

Oh well, bon voyage & best wishes.

But FR has always tended to go against the establihment. Maybe it’s related to Karl Rogue.

All this clown does is bash conservative Republicans, particularly Governor Palin who has been instrumental in reviving the GOP and returning it back to conservative principles.

Doing that completely negates whatever good work he did translating Islamic documents.

Anyway, I hate Opuses. Just fricking leave. This ain't Cheers where everyone knows your name.
