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.

Yep, you got it.
Electing Bush is what THIS election is ALL about.
Not some 3rd party protest vote.

I agree, everyone was friendly had helpful when I joined, even if I made a bonehead comment. I got the newbie tease now and then, but nothing like what's been happening lately.

Don't blame me... I'm voting for Bush.

The REST of my votes will be on third-party candidates, however, come general election time. Hey, I'm running too! I gotta vote for me... otherwise it's just a paper candidacy.

That's it, that's the bottom line. Bush is the only person electable fit to lead this Nation.

To not vote for Bush is to vote for Kerry.

It's time for people to get over themselves and vote, and get others to vote, too.

I've seen a few articles and topics posted lately that seem to have a 'divde and conquer' strategery.

As long as we keep focused on the common goal we'll prevail.

Stealing and taking a little creative license with a line from 'No Time For Sergeants': "FreeRepublic is the best danged site on the whole danged internet."

We've played the personality cult game for three years, time to turn our attention to the task at hand, and to the true enemy.

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.

BTW, you're right. The liberals are driving me crazy the closer we get to the election. I went off on Lance Armstrong and Dubya earlier and for what? I'm on the edge.

I'm watching Clinton right now on TV... he hasn't changed one bit and he won't go away! What a classless jackass...he just quoted scripture. ARRRRRRFGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!

WOW! You do go back a ways... I originally signed up, and was like number seven thousand something, but my email address changed so I re-enlisted.

And it does seem to be true that discussions in the old days were more civil. Points of fact were debated, and early documents were quoted often.

There seems to be much more of a single-issue orientation lately, abortion threads, WOD threads, etc, etc.

The entire philosophy of our government is that government is a servant of the people, not their masters.

Simple ideas like that get swept under the rug over and over.
