Eating our own...Time to make a new start in Free Republic.
7-26-04 | Bob J

Posted on 07/26/2004 7:41:11 PM PDT by Bob J

The last few months I've seen an increasing trend for FReepers to start going for each others jugular. Sometimes we forget (I've certainly done it myself) that in the grand scheme of things, we are on the same team. We may disagree on priorities or how far we are willing to go, but we have enough enemy in the left without creating more amongst ourselves. We can disagree but be civil to each other. We can debate nuance, but not believe that our personal positions are more important than the health of the whole. Let's argue vigorously but remind ourselves the guy whose trachia we are ripping out today may be sitting next to us in a foxhole tommorrow.

I'm going to propose that we all make a new start. Let's put all past differences behind us and resolve to band together and fight the good fight, the elimination of liberalism as a significant culturual influence in America...and see that to its end in our lifetimes.

If you agree, please post your thoughts and ping your lists and your friends to this thread.

The only reason my registration number is in the thirties is because I'm on west coast time ;-}.

Yeah, but I got the 'Bob' name. :=)

I don't know whether I'm ahead of you or not, but we did both register the same day. I used to know my registration but I've forgotten it and can't seem to find it displayed anywhere.

That's going to have to be a pretty big mea culpa..inlcuding shutting down the anti site, but I'm game.

Seriously it would be a measure of closure long sought by many thoughtful and forgiving souls including me.

However, in all honesty I believe amnesty should be limited to sane human life forms.

That said, as a Democrat I keep having to remind you all that Democrats frequently ignore intra party disputes about bad character in order to win another day. It always amazes me that conservatives are quick to murder their young just to teach them a lesson they'll never forget.

Pat Buchanan is a prime example. He hates President Bush and yet he claims to be only trying to defend conservatism...that is baloney. Pat B is only trying to stay in the limelight.

So, if you guys want to re-elect the President then you should be kinder to one another and in the meantime, watch out for the House and Senate 'cause we are going to be taking back at least one of them, and once again get a Congress with guts.

Cold comfort. At least Blunt isn't a socialist... but he sure can spend my tax money like a neoliberal.

As for Gephardt, I wish that pasty commie would resign. He makes my state look bad.

I'm an intense guy, and I stay focused.

I am in full election mode, nothing else matters right now. Watching this crap on TV tonight, realizing that losing this election will give us SIXTEEN YEARS of Liberals in charge, I must keep reminding myself that the enemy is (mostly) not on this site!

And you're not the enemy my friend.

I remember Don Morgan, and a lot of the others from years ago too. (However at my advanced age I just don't remember as well as I use to.) I have been here for a while and even had a bar-b-que at BobJ's house once. Say I wonder what ever happened to "Clintons a Liar"??? Ahhh the "old" days.

Have a good evening and the very best to you and yours.

Well, I'm not made of stone yet, but I'm not a "neo-con" either.

Actually, I was hanging at the Mike Reagan forum for about 8 months before I came to FR, but the Reagan forum quickly got shut down because of disruptors. A couple other folks migrated here, Humidston, Kim4VWRC, a couple more.

Joke noted, and man, do I wish I could indulge in a blunt... but I settle for beer nowadays, and an occasional shot of Jagermeister. Or four.
