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 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.
Dude looks like a lady.
DON'T GIVE ME THAT, YOU SNOTTY-FACED HEAP OF PARROT DROPPINGS!
SHUT YOUR FESTERING GOB, YOU TWIT! YOUR TYPE MAKES ME PUKE!
YOU VACUOUS STUFFY-NOSED MALODOROUS PERVERT!!!
M: Yes, but I came here for an argument!!
A: OH! Oh! I'm sorry! This is abuse!
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.
How about "I hate you, and everyone who looks like you!" lol!
That's going to have to be a pretty big mea culpa..inlcuding shutting down the anti site, but I'm game.
JR spent a lot of time putting in the spell checker for guys like you....sheesh.....
Your reply is a postmodern masterpiece. Well done.
Thank you Bob J.We can get much done and go faster .I could say shove it but you don't know me and it would not be funny.
So you're going to take back everything you said about me?
BTW, it's not just lately, it's been this way all along.
You're a candidate?
Shuddup or I'll rip your lungs out!!
Bob wants to sing Kumbaya... do ya think the spirits of the DemocRAT convention sent him signals all the way to LA?
Well I'm just flabergastedly stuned at those jugulling beebers, too.
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 guess this is as good a time as any to confess that I am a member of Trolls4Kerry. :o)
I'm hungry. Who's for dinner?
