Why should my conservative sister-in-law...
beaversmom ^ | October 14, 2012 | beaversmom

Posted on 10/14/2012 9:35:18 PM PDT by beaversmom

Why should my well-informed, conservative sister-in-law who has been lurking regularly at FR for months, if not years now, sign up for an account here? For some reason, she is reluctant. Help me convince her with some good FReeper common sense and humour, and I'll show her this thread later.

P.S. Tonight I may have recruited a very well informed, conservative neighbour to join the forces too. :) We went to the Israel Awareness event at Faith Bible Chapel in Arvada, CO and she got a signed book by Pastor John Hagee.

Gives you the forum for the ultimate zinger.

If she is conservative, why would she NOT open an account on Free Republic? What’s not to like? Where is she going to find a more intelligent, well informed gaggle of “conspiracy theorists”? Maybe we can find a tinfoil hat to fit her.

Tell her no girls are allowed. She probably isn’t smart enough. We don’t want her here! (the old reverse psychology trick:)

To your sister-in-law:

A couple of my friends are longtime Freepers, although they haven’t posted in quite a while because of life & time constraints. I got curious, and I lurked here for three years before signing up to post a year ago. It’s like having a home among like-minded folks. Freeper humor is the best, and it’s a kick to scroll down a thread, knowing someone will have voiced exactly what’s on your mind.

Lurking is fun, but getting involved is even better.

So she can celebrate on election night with like minded cyber buddies. (I lurked for years and years.)

As long as she considers thoughtfully everything she says before she posts, there should be no problem. I had similar concerns when I was considering moving from lurk status. I have found it to be a joy to communicate with the special folks who gather here.

Are you kidding? The way we now treat newcomers, I don’t think I’d dive in at this time.

I’d wait until after the election dust settles. Everyone is way too prickly right now.

She'll find some of the best humor here that can be found on the web. And FR is a wealth of information. The readers are often just as well, or better informed than the writers who pen the articles Freepers post.

If you've got a need for information, and you value fact over BS...FR is the place to find it.

As long as she never says one negative thing about Romney the “So, Your gonna vote for Obama?!” crowd will leave her alone.

If shes worried about the guys hitting on her tell her to pick a screen name that won’t give her gender away.

Be true to your conservative values and laugh at the posters who attack you if there are any.

Shes welcome to join is when Romney wins and we take the senate..

But, FR will probably crash and we’ll have to use facebook or yahoo groups.

Yes, reverse psychology does work well. Sometimes a tonic of peer pressure and public pleading is as effective.

On a more serious note...I learn so much from the posts here. Ideas, opinions, facts and speculations...the vast mental pool to learn from here on FR is the best...and some days just loads of fun and a good laugh. Tell her to just jump on in...the worst is she will be zotted and called a troll, but most likely welcomed warmly. Even during this election time. Come on in the waters fine. :-)

I think that’s a great practical idea. She might have trouble getting an account the closer it gets to election time! And when Romney wins, she needs to be able to post.

You don’t even have to post for awhile...it took me forever to jump in the water.. Pleeeeeeezzzzeee....

She can’t post a snarky reply if she is only a lurker, only members can. I lurked for months too. But finally gave in. My hesitation was because
I couldn’t think of a screen name.

Why should my well-informed, conservative sister-in-law who has been lurking regularly at FR for months, if not years now, sign up for an account here?

Because you can make real friends with some of the finest people you've ever met in this life, and become part of a community like no other.

That's been one of the greatest benefits to being a member here, and one which I had no idea would occur, until after I'd joined.
