Just a reminder: Free Republic is a conservative site. We fight for conservative principles, values and causes. We defend the Constitution. We defend our borders. We defend our God-given rights. We are opposed to the liberal/socialist/Marxist agenda for America. We do not willingly give up ground to the Marxists.
It's true that the illegal immigration issue is very discouraging, and I don't know if anyone has a solution that will appeal to conservatives and yet manage to get by Democrat obstructionism, ie, a filibuster, but I don't see that as any reason to give up everything. We should not allow it to rip us apart and destroy the movement. We fight on.
We hold the majority. We continue working as hard as we possibly can to elect as many conservatives as we possibly can. We build a conservative majority that can overcome the Democrats and the RINOs. We do not willingly give up any seats to Democrats. We add seats. Preferably, conservative seats.
I would also like to remind everyone, that Free Republic does not condone racism and does not advocate violence. We exercise our first amendment rights to free speech and peaceable assembly. We do not condemn people because of their race, religion, ethnicity, skin color, etc. We do not advocate civil war, anarchy, or an overthrow of the government. We do not advocate shooting illegals or mining the borders. We do not appreciate people coming across our borders illegally, but as conservatives, we do not issue racial epithets or threaten them with violence or bodily harm.
And, yes, we are at war. And we do support our troops and their mission. We also respect our commander-in-chief and are mindful that when people disrespect him, it hurts troop morale. We do not appreciate the mainstream media's attempts to destroy America's will to fight and we do not do anything to assist the Democrats and their accomplices in the media in their treasonous mission of undermining the war effort by providing aid and comfort to the enemy.
And despite our dissatisfaction and disappointments in regards to the illegal immigration issue, we recognize that it is not the last issue on earth and there are plenty of other reasons not to allow the Marxist Democrats to retake power.
I'll list a few issues (by no means and exhaustive list) that will be adversely affected by Marxist/Democrats in power:
The United Nations (as in their control over us)
The Supreme Court
The federal judiciary
The legislative agenda
The right to life
Marriage between one man, one woman
The right to keep and bear arms
The right to freedom of religion
The right to self-governance
All of our God-given rights
Do not get so discouraged that we give it all up. It could take generations to get it back. If ever.
"Securing the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity" is our duty.
Thanks Jim for reminding us all:
"Perfect is the enemy of good"
Thanks for the reminder, boss!
According to the stuff you and the mods let the evolutionist
get away with you could have fooled me with that title.
Good reminder. Thanks again for making this site possible.
That alone should tell liberals not to post here.
I assume Sir, that I am not the first person to suggest that YOU ought to be a candidate for office?
You would have my vote as enthusiastically as I voted for Reagan in '76, '80 and '84!
Thank you for the post in reminder, Jim.
You've gone wobbly.
Let's all abandon every fight lest we just might win.
I don't see any reason to fear the evolutionists. I have faith in the Creator.
Good Morning, Jim!
b&b, so I can refer folks back here when it gets heated.
I'm not abandoning anything. Fight on. Do not give up to the Marxists (Democrats). Do not give them seats. Don't get mad, get even.
Thanks for the encouraging words. However, its hard to feel encouraged when forced to choose between the 'Rats we know and "Republicans" we don't know. I voted for Bush TWICE. I have been a loyal and faithful Republican voter for 20 years. But now I don't know the party any more. That concerns me more than risking one or two elections.
Thanks for the good kick in the can. It is necessary for a reminder every now and then. With all the media out their going against conservative values including Fox News of late, sometimes even the strongest person can fall for it. You are quite a patriot and I appreciate you post fully!!!!!
Thank you freeper.
And never forget that folks are mining our posts for quotes from "Conservative Blogs"
Please watch what you post and don't embarrass us all.
