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 may be an anarchic, moralistic, bigoted, malcontented, alcoholic mick...

What was my point again?
Thank you for including me!
But I'm not completely happy yet because in order for this to be an argument, I have to respond.
WHAT'S IT TO YA?
LIGHTBULB moment .. I having been seeing MSM for that last few days and I just now finally got it
WOW .. what a blonde moment *L*
The only ones I've taken to task are the Republicans in the Senate, who have no backbone to push Bush's agenda through the Senate
I don't think Bob is saying we can't disagree .. just don't tare each other apart in the process
There have been many times where I really wanted to rip into someone out of frustration ..
Instead, I try to walk away from the computer to chill out before posting again
Sometimes the wrong things can be said in the heat of anger
Instead of pointing the anger at each other .. We need to put it to better use .. we need to put our heads and smarts together and Win one for the Gipper .. 50 States Come November
We can do it .. Freepers are the smartest, funniest and cleverest folks I've ever had the pleasure of being around
WE CAN DO IT!!!
Bob, I cannot and shall not endulge the
Bush haters who pretend they're GOP, and
"I know who some of them are."
Do you really expect change with comments like the above? They are the problem. The rest of us have no problem debating and disgussing ideas.
Does that mean I can't post Go Joe Go any more :0)
Mo1,I really like Go Joe Go :)
I'm with ya. Or we'll be spelling Prez Kerry. (Gads, I can't stand to even type it!)
Unfortunately, conservatives can be their own worst enemies. But like another poster on this thread said, I can't sit back and listen to people act like they are conservatives, then watch them bash every single thing about President Bush, thus eliminate him (which is exactly what they are achieving with their rhetoric). We'll end up with Kerry and his ilk if they don't stand up for good decent people like this president and his administration. It was the previous 8 long years that got us where we were on 9-11 and the economy that suffered so terribly from those years too (not to mention the ramifications of the wars and the declining economy when President Bush took office).
So yes, I agree with the premise of your post, but I still gotta stand up for our Commander in Chief and his fight against terrorism, etc. (Which I know you do too).
It would be nice if we could all "unite". But I'll believe it when I see it!
But in honor of your request.. I'm sorry to anyone I ticked off (But only if they didn't deserve it). :o)
Just posted to Bob J :o)
Thanks, just posted to Bob J :o)
I couldn't agree more with you Mo1.
Thanks! I'll tell Gramps. The way it stands now...we're probably just gonna drive up.
Wanna come along? ;-)
"Go Ralphie Go!!" has a good tone too. :)
Mother is sweet and quiet, but she knows how to deliver a punch to a Dem. LOL.
She's a free and liberated women .. I am women hear me roar
Gawd a scary thought *L*
The World As We Know It Is Ending In Less Than 10 Minutes!
