Skip to comments.I am done, whatever (VANITY)
Posted on 03/02/2014 3:13:23 PM PST by aft_lizard
I am done. This site has broken me. I am as staunch a conservative as you will find. After returning from Iraq, injured and upset, I turned here and found a welcoming community that shared my thoughts. I am a proud Gadsden Flag waiving man of the Tea Party movement. But because I don't think Sarah Palin is as historically important as other GOP women in the past, I am now considered an idiot, a RINO, ass-kisser and whatever negative connotation you can throw my way. This site has changed so much since that dictator want to be became President it sickens me. It's lost its sense of community and has ran off many a good person. Heck even the Tea Party seems to be distorted here.
stop whining and post something interesting
Yea. Did you know John Kerry served in Vietnam? Doesn’t make his twisting of reality any more acceptable either.
Log out and you are done.
I hope you find the fellowship that works for you — thanks for your service.
Sorry to see you go. Thank you for your service.
BTW, there are some serious trolls here intending to elicit just this response.
I don’t know the context of your post. Specifics!!!!
Why are you letting the keyboard warriors with their small private parts and their big mouths bother you...?
I would think that if you don’t think Sarah Palin is consequential, you would have plenty of people who would agree with you.
I might just take a hiatus, 10 years is a long time to just walk away.
See you tommorow
Wish you well...
Why defend a ‘conservative’ that has to display PDS? Because by any but a lib standard, Palin HAS had a positive effect on right wing politics.
Everyone gets burned out eventually.
Bye, and just remember:
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, The courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.
There is a highly organized Soros funded action to infiltrate and drag down sites like FR.
Please DO NOT allow yourself to become one of their sick, twisted victories.
I’m not a big Palin fan either.
How is the tea party distorted here?
Unlike libs, conservatives like to eat their own. It would be amusing if it weren’t so disgusting....
Don't fall for it.
Thank you for your service and I'll down one with you anytime! Salute!!!
Man up. Ain’t nobody gonna kiss your owwie for you. If you quit over one thread, then I don’t think FR is your problem. Good luck with it, whatever it is.
Here is an example of exactly what I am talking about. “Norm” here assumes I have “PDS”, yet Norm here likely doesnt know or hasnt read the thread I am talking about. SO of course I am the bad guy.
You may not be a RINO, just kind of dumb maybe.
Prince Rebus talked about Republican women trailblazers.
She was the first VP candidate the Republicans ever put up.
Can’t be more of a trailblazer than that.
Rebus really shows himself stupid in deliberately leaving her out, which he clearly did for his own reasons.
He should have mentioned her, he looks small this way.
Well, I have found there are certain topics I don’t even bother bringing up just because people jump in and start hammering you.
It isn’t even worth the effort.
Don’t know what compelled this opus, but being hammered for speaking in less than glowing terms about Sarah Palin seems like an odd thing to elicit the opus.
No weeping. No recriminations by name. No vague allusions of secret cabals. No lengthy postings of historical evidence. No rantings at mods. Generally grammatically correct. I can’t even give it a 1.0.
Its not complicated. If you don’t feel the same way about Sarah Palin as others, don’t say anything.
If it was one thread on one subject then you would have a point. It was just the thread that broke the camels back.
Everyone thinks what they think, you know. I think Palin is a good woman. I do not regret my vote for her at all.
However I do not think that she has not positioned herself to really be a factor any longer, at least not on a national election stage. I could be wrong about that, but I think I’m right.
I’ve gotten plenty of flak for thinking that, and plenty of flak for other things I think, believe me.
But I’ma put it out there. I don’t care what people say. I see things how I see them, and certainly I’m not always right, but I am just a simple man trying to make sense of an insane world that I live in, so you know, sometimes me and others butt heads.
That’s just how it goes.
I might just take a hiatus, 10 years is a long time to just walk away.
A little R&R will do wonders. After 15 years here, you realize that we conservatives are not a monolith.
Thanks for fighting for us. We will continue to fight for you.
See you around the forum.
I like Sarah Palin. So what?
This forum has improved quite a bit since I started lurking quite a few years ago.
Nothing is perfect tho.
I don’t get why people do this, I really don’t. If you don’t want to post on this site any longer, then don’t. Why make a whining post asking to have your account deleted? Why not just log off? I realize it’s something of a tradition around here but it’s stupid if you ask me.
BTW I don’t agree with Palinbots either, here’s an idea, just stop arguing with them. It’s a big site.
A rest from FR from time to time is good for the soul, as one once told me. Be seeing you!
Why limit yourself. Perhaps you may realize that other tea party candidates exist out there and are liked here at FR. people are allowed to disagree with you and you them. Don’t get all pissy because someone disagrees with you on one issue. It’s not a deal breaker unless you make it so.
Stop arguing with them? Really? Don’t we all log on to argue with strangers?
Depends how one ‘RE’ defines conservative. Because most actual conservatives by the traditional definition here seem to be solidly on the same page.
If we didn’t have the sycophants pushing for RINOs and tearing down people sticking or even ATTEMPTING to stick to principle it wouldn’t be an issue.
Instead people like Palin who are well above the 80% mark get trashed and ‘lesser evils’ that are far below get the backslaps.
Aft-lizard - is that a lizard that’s on the pointy end of the boat or on the flat end?
Freedom of expression is one of freedoms your service helped protect. Don't allow one poster to run you away just because he can't deal with your opinion.
What’s this exhibitionism? So you don’t like somebody and others do! Go away, instead of soliciting thanks “for your service”.
That is a far too Adult thing to do Cripple!
Norm has dealt with PDS for several years and seen your whinning from many.
She has both been marginalized and ALLOWED herself to become marginalized. She had an opportunity to be far more important than she is...that said, I am glad I voted for her as well (because I certainly had no intention of voting for that McLame fellow)...
Take a little time off.Stay away from certain threads.Thank you for your service.((((Hugs))))
I am not the biggest Palin fan.
But I do recognize that at times our enemies use Palin as a proxy for all of us, and that’s when she should be defended. Like it or not, she is the “face” they use to try to demonize Conservatives in general.
Whether or not she’s qualified to be POTUS is whole other discussion.
Nothing disgusts me more than when they attack her family, because I know they aren’t just going after her, they are going after anyone who believes in the things she does.
