Are Democrats welcome here?

Posted on 05/06/2004 9:09:25 AM PDT by joe_northrop

Is anyone of the Democratic persuasion welcome here, or are you crazy Republicans going to kick me off? Do any of you know how freaking ridiculous things are getting with George Bush in office? Let's do the list: assaults the environment, rising unemployment, rising gas prices, rising hatred of us across the globe, a phony war with over 700 Americans dead, POW torture, overtime pay almost done away with.....the list goes on and on. It's CRAZY.

Well, Democrats are allowed, but only if they can debate in a civil, reasoned fashion. Your post gives me no reason to hope for a long stay for you. Good luck with that, there.

rising unemployment

You mean that data today that says the unemployment rate is the lowest in four years? That rising unemployment?

You are, of course, invited to stay as long as you like!

All we ever ask is, defend what you say with key points and fact, instead of talking points and rants.

Democrats are always welcome if they can articulate their points, however stupid people are spotted and dismissed quite quickly.

bye bye

Joe -
No one here really cares about your party affiliation. However, you'll probably be dinged for posting incorrect information. (You should learn to back up your comments with facts.)

Are you trying to get yourself kicked out of here? This isn't a Bush bashing site. I would ask if you read Jim Robinson's statement that was posted on the home page for so long. Did you pass reading comprehension tests?

You failed to mention the evil tax cuts. And the ban on partial-birth abortions. How about the overthrow of the taliban? Are you going to stay and debate or just run?

The only democrats who have managed to hang around are inevitably females because they are the only dems with the balls and brains to debate.

I have no hope that you fit that bill.

Democrats are welcome here and YOU are welcome here. However, posting a vanity for your first post on the same day that you signed up will get you some well deserved grief. Stick around and defend your ideas unless you are simply recycling from a previous ban by using another screen name.

This cannot be a credible question because it's the same laundry list of complaints (albeit, contrived and exaggerated, etc.) every Liberal ALWAYS makes for every Republican administration no matter what or when. Why do Democrats stay trapped in this blind alley of grievances?

I'm not really a Republican.

I'm an Independant with Neocon leanings and I support President Bush.

That said, a lot of our current hang-overs are Clinton left-overs.

If you are honest, you know it's true.

we welcome reasoned debate. If you make a claim, back it up with facts AND sources. FReepublic is big on sourcing one's points.

Now, this IS a conservative forum, so you may get bounced -- as is the right of the operator. But stick around and give it a serious try.

Stay away from hyperbole, strng adjectives, name calling etc.

Sadly , you will get some rude responses, but work with the reasoned members and ALWAYS cite a source to back up your claims and positions.

Democrats are welcome, as long as the disavow the former slave holders of their party and the KKK Members of the party in the senate.

It would help the length of your stay to pick one or two points and present logical reasons why you believe them. Posting a whole list of talking points with no proof will get you nowhere. There are a few that have been here a good while trying to defend their points logically. So it is possible... just unlikely.

Sure Democrats are welcome, as long as they are reasonably polite and have something worthwhile to say. I don't think you're off to a very good start, though.

A reasoned debate is always welcome. However, you are only going to parrot the DemocRat daily talking points.

So the answer is yes, they are welcome, but we'll make an exception for you. See you later, Bush hater.

I would imagine true, Jeffersonian, Democrats are allowed on these boards. Not too sure about Communist Oinkers, though.

By the way, Genius - a "phony war" wouldn't result in 700 dead American soldiers. A "real war" has - one that anyone other than a Communist Oinker would understand and support.

Phony war ?
You mean the one the Islamo-fascists declared on the U.S. ?
Where have you been ?
Do you recall:
September 11th
The Cole
The two U.S. Embassies
Khobar Towers
The 1993 WTC attack
Somalia
The Stark
Pan Am flight 103
The Marine baracks attack in Lebanon ?

Those are the most egregious, there are more.
Wake up.

No your welcome. Just explain to me how you can vote for a person that admitts to being a WAR Criminal. He didn't just abuse non-combantants, he killed them. If you will vote for a War Criminal, then gas prices, environment, unemployement(going down again) etc etc, mean absolutely nothing.
