Skip to comments.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.
Nice opus. Thanks for all you’ve done.
My FRiend, these days, political correctness rules everywhere, including here.
This bloodletting is not doing us any good as a party.
2. So who and how are people “silencing you?”
I know you and I know your posts. Don’t leave.
We are sorry to see you leave.
cool, an opus.
Do not go gentle into that good night, Rage, Rage against the dying of the Right!
Sorry if you’re leaving, but to not even look atnews? All the best to you, I hope you return sometime.
At this rate, pretty soon there’ll be nobody here...
You are not a conservative if you are supporting Rudy.
I agree with you! It seems anymore unless you agree totally with the powers that be, you aren’t welcomed here anymore.
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.
Why are you giving in? STAND UP AND FIGHT, that’s what’s wrong with the world, people crumble under pressure,,,,don’t give up, stand up and be counted. EVERYONE is entitled to their opinions........
We ain’t dead yet.
Dont let a few simple minds upset you...
see, it’s stuff like that...if rudy is our nominee, you better believe i will vote for him to keep hitlary out of the white house!!!!!
Guiliani smells. Stay anyway!
Who are you to tell another person that?
Speak for yourself!
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.
(Cue band Player)
Baby come back, any kind of fool could see
There was something in everything about you
Baby come back, you can blame it all on me
I was wrong, and I just can't live without you
And if I was voting for Guiliani (which I’m not); I would still be here, too.
It’s a shame to see you go. I think civility and mutual respect have fallen on FR. It mirrors real life, I guess.
Always enjoyed your posts.
All the best to you.
Whoa there! Before you fall of the radar, please sign up here!
Republicans are an extinct animal in NJ and we are just rolling up our sleeves!
Sad to see you go. The site has lost a lot of good people and retained most of the jerks.
Thanks for what you’ve done but sorry you supported the most left wing candidate the GOP is running..
Being pro-abortion is SO BRAVE.
You and your ilk are the reason people are unhappy with this sight.
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.
Nobody likes a quitter.
Oh boo hoo. Go ahead and vote for however you want, I could care less. I’m sick to death of this “he’s picking on me garbage so I’m going to take my ball and go home.” If you can’t take the heat get out of the kitchen.
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.
Best wishes to you in your future endeavors.
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.
Dude, it’s best not to support any one of these clowns.
By the way, what’s the plural of ‘opus’? Opi?
If you have any cohones you would stay.
End of story.
Remember, WideAwakes recently moved. http://www.wideawakes.info/
Have fun over there.
Don’t feel too bad. I’ve thought seriously about supporting Ron Paul, and you know how folks on FR feel about that.
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 have been here since 1998. I have been banned, flamed, etc. There is a difference between us. I don’t have a silly EGO over bloated like you.
See what Rudy has done to you!
Surprised I am not at your post to this person. Another example in a long line of examples.
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.
