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.

...It's Clinton isn't it?

Just making you feel all loving and stuff...

Can't we all just get along?

:-)...

LOL - I was just thinking the same thing .... he just watched the Clinton speech.

But, I agree - we have got to work together.

So, I will try and not be "snippy about it" when some anti-Bush conservative claims that he just must show the GOP that they have lost him. I will promise to make my "remember, we have to defend this country from utter ruin by another administration of democrats that will put us under control of the U.N., change our constitution to permit a re-run of Bill, and appease the terrorists" speech very kindly worded.

I want FR to be the moveon.org of the right. I mean in terms of visibility and recognition, not for the negative reasons.
We can't do that divided. If we're divided, the One World socialist government will prevail. Let's not wake up to that nightmare.

Sure, and the Snopes thread? BTW, since there are multiple allegations of Kerry stiffing wait staff, isn't that something that:

1 - the mainstream media will ignore, and

2 - folks that are conservative might like to investigate?

Or is "news" restricted to the AP and UPI? N.B. The most recent Kerry tip stiffing allegation was JUNE of this year. If that isn't news, I really don't know what is.

OK, this is already late in the thread, but it needs to be said. Manners are a traditional conservative value. Our Christian faith tells us that "if any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain", James 1:25-27, and "For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile", 1 Peter 3:9-11.

Whether we're discussing Edmund Burke, John Adams, William Buckley, Russell Kirk, Richard M Weaver, or Ronald W Reagan, manners have been at the core of decency among conservatives.

Bob J, you're just buying in to Reagan's 11th commandment!

Thanks for the ping, MeekOneGop - we have an election to win, and I fear victory will not be easily won. We need to unite until November 2+.

Maybe, but that wasn't the 'reason' given and I'd love to BUMP the original. The fact is, if true, it will take a million mouse warriors to make it an issue. I guess I sorta assumed that a conservative website might actually want news that wasn't pure AP filtered urea. My bad.

Maaaa ...

Dighton won't stop touching me ... and his cat ate all of my Fritos ...

Aculeus keeps opening the door to the bathroom while I'm in inside and then running away ...

general_re is being mean to me ...

L,TOWM ate all of the liberals and didn't save any for me ...

Constitution Day is a poo-poo head and told everybody that I have cooties ...

hellinahandcart is always smooching with Sauropod and it's just plain yucky ...

and poohbah won't let me play with his GI Joe doll and is always saying he got me when we're playing soldiers, when he knows that he couldn't hit the broadside of a barn.

If they're going to play, I'm going to take my ball and go home! So there! And I'll hold my breath 'til I turn blue and die and then you'll all be sorry ...

I wish I had been around to have one of the first few replies to this post.

I could not agree with it more.

I am here to fight for conservatism, to fight against liberalism, communism, anarchism, fascism, and ismism.

I am not here to have libertarians call me a fascist, or conservatives call me a liberal, or someone who had a post pulled from breaking news that was a duplicate of a sports related post call me a false friend.

Or am I venting? :-)

We are on the same side here, except for the posers.

Great post, Bob!

Seriously, though. Bob. JBob. BobsterJ. Without people like you, what would FR be today? People who care. People who have opinions, and aren't afraid to express them. People like you. And yes, people like me. People, people who need people. Thanks for existing, big guy.
