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.

During the week of the Reagan funeral, she told Mother how much she adored Reagan. I suggested Mother ask her if she thought Reagan would vote for Kerry...she did, and the woman was horrified. "Oh my goodness, NO". Mother (I've trained her well) said 'well, then why would you?'

Nice!!!

I will admit, all politics aside, that Tipper is attractive.

She has a pretty face .. but her whacked out personality over shadows it

Precisely! That's exactly how I was trying to describe this "attraction". If Al Gore was mild-mannered, he would probably have a "Tipper mute" remote control on his chairside table. The two of them together are just "two whacked out peas in a pod".

Thanks for the ping, Tonk.

Bob is right -- we (except for Trolls) are on the same side.

We know who the enemy is -- Demoncrats! Therefore we should shelve our differences and all work together to ensure a huge Demoncrat defeat in November.

"Someone has deemed this thread irrelevant enough to pull it from the sidebars...very disturbing..."

I SO agree with you. Let's talk. It may be time for a new alliance...think about it. And I don't care that we discuss here in public or private.

Veterans (and others for) Constitutional Restoration (VetsCoR), Think of the huge possibilities, especially with the Kerry military controversary. Bob, it is time to bring them all together, no matter what it takes...we can find a way around everyone's fiefdom. What do you say, bro? I say the time has come. Let's start talking to the powers-that-be in every conservative/military org we can. Don't give up, damn you.

Another thing, Bob, it may be time to be "assimilated" into other large known effective organizations.

You've tried your best. But face it, as I have with VetsCoR, without the finances and the power players we can't make a REAL difference, DC Chapter and their Washington proximity not withstanding.

Let's talk about merging alliances once again. You nor I need to be paid for our efforts, so lets build a coalition no matter who's in control. The whole point is promote conservatism (not politicians or parties). What do you think? I'm there if you're interested. Between us, we have a lot of contacts/orgs we could merge with. And I'm not talking smalltime like FitAimAct. I'm talking about the large orgs that already exist. Enough of this small time already, let's get the Freepers to help with existing, competetive, and effective orgs that are out there.

I came in late but I agree with you. But I will continue to flame YOU whenever I can. I just don't like people named Bob. Nothing personal.

Sorry that I have never flamed you before but I will not miss the next opportunity.

Ping me to any thread that you are getting flamed on so that I can pile on.

Thanks

Hi, Meekie!

I agree with you.

We need to put away our past differences and realize that like the terrorists want to kill all Americans weather Conservative or Liberal, so alos, do the liberals mean to defeat all us conservatives to the ruination of our country.

We need to stick together to stick it to the liberals!
