Skip to comments.Eating our own...Time to make a new start in Free Republic.
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.

I've been on this Forum for a while and have had the time to make a lot of enemies. I'm putting everything that's happened in the past into the grave and making a new start with everyone (you know who you are). I pledge to argue my case, but will always remember that even though we have differences, you ultimately are my friend in the trenches.

Cyborg times it perfectly.
You mean to say you visit someone's profile page and click on the "In Forum" link as shown above and you see no number at the end of the URL?
Someone has deemed this thread irrelevant enough to pull it from the sidebars...very disturbing...
BTTB (bump to the bottom), and let the personal attacks continue! (I'm kidding, of course.) Personally, I wish there was more adherance to, and enforcement of, the 'no personal attacks' rule. Howdy, SD Freepers.
You mean they actually bother to cancel? Why not just quit logging on --- wouldn't that accomplish the same? Do you know a lot of people who sent in a cancellation?
Safely back in AZ?
This election is big, I think that it's only the fourth time that we've elected a war time president.
Time to get the job done so that we can bicker again after we've won.
That's the sanest most truthful post on this thread. BobJ -- I love you, man. And I don't even know you :)
That's hard to believe. It's still up on Drudge.
I'm in. How do I revise my contribution to effect change?
mojo was hard on people though. Rode them like a government mule. I wonder how he'd cope with BobJ's idea of a new tone?
