Amnesty at Free Republic?

Posted on 06/18/2014 8:50:05 PM PDT by Plutarch

Whoa, I've been banned at FR since...what was it, 2011?

I take a glance at FR to see if there are any interesting articles posted, and it says I have mail, which I don't think I had access to. No messages to me from FR. But when I go to post, no more rude comment informing me my posting privileges are revoked.

Was there a general amnesty or something? I was banned (apparently) for my stubborn backing of the the eventual 2012 GOP Presidential nominee.

Yes, when it became clear that the choice in 2012 was between a RINO who would damage the country and a Marxist who would destroy the country, it was OK to support RINO Romney and people stopped getting banned.

I abhor McCain. Who is Krispy Kreme? I detest Jeb Bush. Cantor's defeat was the highlight of the year.

After he won the nomination your man came out for abortion again, and against the GOP pro-life platform AND CLAIMED THAT HE HAD OPENLY CAMPAIGNED ON THOSE POSITIONS and reaffirmed his gay Boy Scout leader position, and he ran pro-choice ads in Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin, and managed to lose an election that he couldn’t lose, against Carter’s second term.

“Better than Obama no doubt but he is a flip flopper and a RINO.”

I’ve gotten to the point that when it comes to a choice on which cultural/national destructionist to pick from the approved lists, I, generally, prefer the D to end up wearing it.

Picking an R, just to have the R, even when it’s just gonna be more D crap... doesn’t make any sense to me, any more.

Even on issues like SCOTUS picks. It’s not like the entire thing isn’t imploding, and there’s no real hope in hell for a peaceful solution anyway after so much destructionism and flat out refusal to honor oath of office, anyway.

Thinly veiled? I’ve been a Romney supporter in 2008 and now.
I’ve been a Freeper since 2000. If my extensive posting history isn’t conservative, that’s news to me. I don’t agree that Romney is a RINO, and I think he is by far the most likely candidate to defeat Obama.

I haven’t been touting Romney at FR, but I have been carping about the heavy-handed censorship. I don’t think that a conservative forum with ‘Free’ in its title should be proscribing discussion of GOP candidates, especially as to the judgement of whether a candidate is conservative.

I am not going to take orders from anyone as to which candidate I support. If that gets me banned, so be it.

I could.

But, we have lost a few good members to Romney and Rudy and such.

I am more curious to see how long he was suspended and released and why he would check to see if he was able to post.

Dude, Obama is systematically destroying the country, ignoring the Constitution, and using the vast powers of government against We the People. In the meantime, an Islamist state is forming in the Middle East.

All this, and you want to rehash 2012? Seriously? This is why the Leftists win and we lose. They see the bigger picture and crush all opposition, while we bicker amongst ourselves like old women.

I have to agree with you. Just as long as it’s NOT president of the United States.

How about President of Lapsy Auto? Yes Romeny would make a good president of that.

split the conservative vote and allow another Rino to be nominated.
Oh what joy 2016 may shape up to be.

Romney would be doing the same thing except in a Pubbie way.

The citizenry had a choice in 2012 to vote for a collectivist Dem or collectivist Pubbie. What’s the point of voting for the Pubbie if he is a collectivist, too?

Now do you understand why conservatives stayed home and didn’t vote? Hint(whisper): Romney isn’t conservative.
