Why? Its true - I don’t care who the heck runs against obaa - they have my vote.
Spongebob/Tickle Me Elmo has my vote over Obama in 2012.
My first vote is Sarah - but if for some reason she does not win the primary - I am not stayng home.
the stakes are too large - especially with the SC. I cant stand Myth, but I would easily vote for the pence ryan, thune, jindle, christie, etc. if they are the nominee.
Democrats hate too much, you would have made a great Whig!
More than 3500 babies are MURDERED EVERY DAY. The PURPOSE OF GOVERNMENT is to protect our rights and chief among these is LIFE. You should try reading the Declaration of Independence and Constitution some time troll.
Just out of curiosity, do you think any of the candidates in the 2008 GOP primaries could have won? I don't. I remember when this site was Fred Republic and he couldn't get out of the starting blocks. I doubt Rudy/Huck McRomney would have had much chance against The American Idol either.
We seem to be having a run on people just begging us to dilute our Constitutional conservative message with endless liberal debates, RINO campaigns and misleading marxist mythology.
The heck with that.
See ya, pal. You want an echo chamber, its all yours.
Right you are, but Chuck is a wascally wabbit who disguised his Romney defense cleverly throughout with a carefully neutral (but see-through) plausible deniability. So much so that FReeper ejonesie22 coined the term for him ... the Swiss Ninja:
Of course, Charlie actually liked that at the time, IIRC?
Hey moron, Free Republic is a PRO-LIFE CONSERVATIVE FORUM, it's supposed to be an echo chamber when it comes to things like abortion!
No its not. Screaming zealots. No room for thoughtfulness. FR has totally changed in the years I’ve been here, so I’ve become scarce, and now I’m am gone.
Flame away, “real” conservatives.
GOD bless you Allegra. Happy Thanksgiving friend!
I meant it as a compliment. ;)
It turns out you really are a “dashing doofus”.
Tera watt alert!
Long time friend... Happy Thanksgiving!
Love for life *is* love.
The pro-abortionists miss that very point.
Hate is on their side. They own it.
Like our grate President Reagan observed, (paraphrasing)
“All the people FOR abortion are already born.”
You definitely know Charlie.
And some things never change.
I understand what you’re saying. The biggest problem is that you can only vote for the people who are actually in the race at the time and often the choices are terrible.
With 300 MILLION people in the country you’d think we could at least have enough people that would make good Presidents, Senators, etc. on down the line.
We need to draft more FReepers and other conservatives to run at all levels, local, state and national.
(I’m frustrated enough to try myself but I’m disabled and unelectable. But at least I’d try if I could. I wish more FReepers would step up and serve. Some do.)
Dash away, dash away, dash away home.
When the time comes, as it surely will, when we face that awesome moment, the final judgment, I've often thought, as Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness. You have no advocates, you are there alone standing before God -- and a terror will rip your soul like nothing you can imagine. But I really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone. I think there'll be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world -- and they will plead for everyone who has been in this movement. They will say to God, 'Spare him, because he loved us!
If you want a free for all site that seems to fit your values, I would suggest 4chan
I’m sorry but that opus is really “doofus”.
Your reading comprehension score must be as low as your IQ. Maybe you should actually look at what you quoted before getting exercise by jumping to conclusions:
>> “Those who cannot live with that should simply stay away!!” “If you wish to support him then I suggest you sign off FR” <<
Read those words carefully. In case English isn’t your first or second language, let me type slowly and ‘spain for you, since you’re apparently from Rio Linda.
“I suggest” means that the owner of this website is inviting those who don’t agree with his reasons for starting and running this PRIVATE website are welcome to NOT read or post their opinions on it.
To “suggest” is 1. To introduce indirectly to the thoughts; to cause to be thought of, usually by the agency of other objects.
A “suggestion” is an ‘intimation or insinuation.
If you’re worried that FR is taking a DU stance, then may I, and - from the comments on this thread - a lot of others, politely suggest that that you feel free to move over to DU or Huffpo or any other website that you think you will be more “free” on. If you want to support Romney with your posts or comments, there are literally millions of other websites that you can try to do that on. Don’t let the suggestions here stop you from sharing your wisdumb on any of those other sites (and see how far that gets ya).
But while you’re here, free of charge, on another person’s property, it might be wise to heed that person’s suggestions. Just like if you were on someone’s physical property and they “suggested” that you don’t trample the flower bed because you might get shot... or worse.
If Mr. Thompson isn’t amenable to promoting Gov. Mitt’s candidacy in posts here, it would be a good idea to heed that suggestion and not post such comments.
Getting back to your literacy... or lack thereof. Maybe you can have someone re-read Mr. Thompson’s post wherein he states this about this website:
“As a conservative site, Free Republic is pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-Constitution, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-private property rights, pro-limited taxes, pro-capitalism, pro-national defense, pro-freedom, and-pro America.”
I can see nowhere in that where the word “Republican” is mentioned. In fact, if you read ALL of the front page, you’ll only find the word “Republican” in about three external links to other sites. Could it be more clear that this is NOT a REPUBLICAN site?
As far as I’M concerned, “Republicans” have been part of the problem, not the solution [paraphrasing Ronaldus]. If you consider yourself a “good Republican” and are worried about being kicked off this site because you want to post, comment, discuss or promote f#@$%ng @$$holes like Romney, I would be more than happy to see your account (and IP address) banned. I’M a CONSERVATIVE, not a Republican.
As much as I don’t like some of the mod’s decisions in pulling some posts or zotting some accounts, I fully understand that I’m here by the grace of the owner and his assigns. I try to play by his rules. If he has come to the realization that Mitt Romney is a lying, two-faced corruptocrat politician who will say or promise anything to get elected and then do what he damn well pleases, citizens be damned, and said owner has decided that your posts supporting this puss filled sleaze-bag is grounds for banning you, again, THIS IS HIS PROPERTY.
That being said, I still think that this place is one of the most free, tolerant and enlightening places on the web. If I want to continue to post here, I’ll abide by the few rules that have been put in place— once again, by THE OWNER of the site.
And when you say “We are not kicking them off”, I have to ask, who’s this WE or do you have mouse in your pocket? Last time anybody checked, you weren’t registered as the owner or empowered by him as one of the mods.
God, I love the smell of ZOTs in the morning!
P.T. Barnum said it best...
Yeah let’s ignore what a politician has ACTUALLY done and just let their words guide us...
Romney did universal healthcare at the state level...PERIOD.
He is a Progressive scumbag.
You have this very image on your forum page.
Interesting that you've elected to withdraw from FRee Republic, --- calling us an echo chamber --- given that President Reagan was adamantly pro-life.
I seriously doubt that he'd support a fraud like Romney when there's Sarah Palin and other pro-life "real" conservatives.
I think I’m in love again.
Myth Rahmknee is anti-gun. He can KMA!
Hint: We’re not going to support abortion or abortionists or Statists or their pushers/enablers on this web site, whether they be contributors or not. Thank you.
Thanks very much, wagglebee! Beautifully written by the late Henry Hyde.
I am always taken aback to find pro-abortion members on FR. I will never understand that POV.
(Pro-life) LIFE is the very foundation of everything we cherish; God, family, and our Republic.
He said we weren't "thoughtful." He's no conservative. He's a Jon Stewart follower. That's one of leftist Stewart's favorite accusations.
LOL. That's a Romney answer.
Pro-life and proud of it.
I said way upthread you should be zotted. Not for you Mitt comments.
But for your liberal ideas towards the right to life.
You think the issue of abortion “kills us”?
Troll: What do you think it does to the baby in the womb?
Great title / read later
Yep, Romney's spent his entire life saying whatever he thought would get him the most votes.
"Free Republic is a site dedicated to the concerns of traditional grassroots conservative activists. We're here to discuss and advance our conservative causes in a more or less liberal-free environment. We're not here to debate liberals. We do not want our pages filled with their arrogant, obnoxious, repugnant bile. Liberals, usurpers, and other assorted malcontents are considered unwelcome trolls on FR and their accounts and or posts will be summarily dismissed at the convenience of the site administrators."
Now, since we're not here to debate liberals, you have to define liberals. Compared to the kind of Constitutional, pro-life conservatives here on FR then Mitt Romney *is* a RINO liberal. So we're not here to debate about him.
The same goes for pro-child murder abortionists. We're not here to debate them. They don't belong here. We are here to discuss how to further OUR agenda, not convince them to change their damaged minds.
Is this clear? Do you get it now?
Right and worse. Not just talk, but big-government action.
He enacted and he really thought "Romneycare" was going to be the blueprint to sweep him into office at 1600 Pennslyvania Ave.
Wrong. He's a big liberal and now romneycare is his Waterloo.
That is beautiful.
Anyone who is pro-life, or doesn't like Romney could have an opportunity to say what they think, right alongside those who are Romney-bots.
Mitt might even pony up like he did when he bought his own book to make it a best seller for a week (okay, a day).........
And Happy (Early) Thanksgiving to you, too... ;-)
Abortionists, gay rights activists, Statists, RINOS, RudyBots, RomneyBots, et al, can KMA!! They're NOT wanted here!!
Can labor union activists be added to that list of those not wanted here? Please? Pretty please?
The union thugocracy is in lock-step with Marxist/Leninist philosophy as witnessed by their support of democrats in election after election. In my opinion, unionism is every bit as pernicious as activists for homosexuals. And my stance on the abomination of homosexuality is a matter of record in my postings.
I think a large measure of what's going so wrong in California can be attributed to unionism which births such horrors as the ultra-corrupt SEIU.
Normally, I’d just respond to that with “Hugs ‘n’ kisses!” but since we’re both pretty old, male, nasty curmudgeons, I guess I’ll just have to say:
“Tell those kids to get off the lawn!!!”
Basically I have no problem with the site not supporting anybody who can not get the base out much less one who will actively keep people home and have a dem win again....but hey we are the stupid party for a reason....we never learn...especially from history...just look at how the rinos in power destroyed our own candidates this last election...yep brilliant.
Romney equals McCain, Dole and Bush I on steroids....no thanks
I just get tired of the need to keep repeating it. I am afraid that the Democrats and the media will use the opposition of the social conservatives to Romney as a plus, by portraying Romney as a moderate.
I never supported Romney because of Romenycare. I remember reading that Romney stated at the time that it was passed, that he hoped to bring the same kind of health reform to the whole country some day. I thought to myself, not if I can help it.
I appreciate your polite response, but you neglected to mention an important part of my post, which is that instead of posting privately to Jim, you openly challenged his many recent posts regarding the way that he wants his site to operate. I understand how one can feel a part of a community here, but this would not be a community if we had anarchy.
Yes, there may be room for those who are learning and asking questions, who are reading articles and perhaps becoming more conservative, but this site, as I understand it, has a very specific purpose. Let other sites function as they will, the owner of this site has made his thoughts known. It is up to those of us who want to remain here to respect his wishes.
You are completely wrong if you think that the people who were banned were new comers who only joined FreeRepublic to influence the campaign. They were almost all long term conservatives, if not long term social conservatives.
Unionists be damned!! Unite against the damned unionists!!
