Goodbye FR [Mods respond: don't let the door hit your arse on the way out]

Posted on 11/14/2007 2:51:00 PM PST by HHKrepublican_2

I will be leaving FR. I will no longer post here and likely will no longer check the news here either. I began to post here a few years ago with updates on my attempts and eventual success at founding teenage republican clubs across New Jersey and the surrounding area. I used to run a ping list about the invasion of Islam into Europe. I ran an FR-based operation to try to change public opinion about the Iraq war using letters to the editor and "stats" e-mails. It seems however that as soon as I began to indicate that I was supporting Mr. Giuliani for the Presidency all of that was instantly forgotten and I was branded many of the things I'm sure are crossing many people's minds as they read this. I'm leaving before I get kicked off for my own opinions, I'm not a left-winger who comes to attack the website, I'm a conservative that comes to share my opinions, and if this is a place where certain opinions are muted out because some disagree then good-bye. I always thought it was the Democrats who believed that if you silenced people who disagreed with you, what you were saying became true. What a fool I must be.

1. How thin a skin do you have?

2. So who and how are people “silencing you?”

If you’re writing this and it’s not deleted — you still have a voice.

I’m not voting for Giuliani.

I’m still here.

Anyway, that’s my 1.5 cents.

I have quite the thick skin actually. Look onto almost any thread where I’ve posted about Giuliani. I had to get rid of my Rudy ‘08 tag line because of all of the attacks, as well as private messages.

Also, I wish i had mentioned the juvenile polling that goes on at this website. It reminds me of a DNC press release.

Dude! You survived Rudy, Purge 1 too.

Come on man, Buck up! Try harder if you really believe in your man..

AS long as you voice your message in a tasteful manner.. I don’t see the big problem,, besides some folks like the muck,, some innocents get caught up in it occasionally too, oh well, such is life..

Have a good one.

It won’t be long before we are no longer discussing Rooty911. is ties to Kerik (sp?) will push him out the door.

He is pro-abort, and offers nothing in the are of national security that Fred Thompson doesn’t offer in my estimation.

I will be glad to see him go.

Rudy’s not my first choice, but I hear you loud and clear, and you are NOT ALONE in your concern and disappointment. I’ve run into the same bullheaded refusal to have discussions myself, and I hope you won’t leave. I like it when there’s give and take, and when someone CONVINCES me to change my position. Too often, it’s just vollies of insults and closed minds.

I can't really say I understand your position, but other than moderators, the only person that can silence you on these boards is you.

There are some here who will attack those who disagree with them, but the majority do not. They may attack your positions. They may aggressively defend their own positions, but for the most part they won't just attack people.

You've chosen to support a candidate that I really can't understand a conservative that has payed attention to what that candidate has done supporting, and I may very well be among those that have criticized your choice. However, you are welcome to try and justify that choice and explain why you think he is the best choice.

I don't think you will convince many people of much of anything by leaving.

I think it is really sad that this keeps happening. I understand why you are considering leaving. I have thought about doing so myself. I used to be proud to be a Freeper. I am not so proud anymore. I am getting very sick of the name calling, and some of the over the top, ridiculous things some people are saying, not only about Giuliani, but also about Romney. People on this forum are no longer civil. I may be right behind you.

Cindy this is not directed at you..

But there has to come a moment on FR when people realize that Rudy may be the nominee and we will be left with the choice of Rudy or Hillary.

I for one would hold my noise and vote for Rudy....because I don't think this country could take another 8 years of the Clintons....times are to dangerous.

Thank you for allowing me to rant.

I don’t agree with my brother’s politics (Democrat in the mold of Lieberman), but I haven’t kicked him out of the house.

We just don’t talk about social issues where we part.

We have plenty of common ground re: Islamists & Israel.

I see a parallel here.
