Skip to comments.Just a reminder: Free Republic is a conservative site
Posted on 04/11/2006 3:33:35 AM PDT by Jim Robinson
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.
Dude...that's a vanity post.
There has been a lot of venting on the board... Lord knows I am guilty of it too.
I'll try to simmer down a bit.
""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.""""
..utter desperation by the Democrats is the root of these demonstrations for 'rights', an attempt to grab millions of votes. That will put them back in power,... for generations. They have hit Bush and this Administration with everything (that includes the kitchen sink) and it's not working.
With 06 elections on us, and 08 effectively underway next year, this is the democratic party and MSM desperation of full frontal assault.
Got your back !!!
Beautifully said ~ wonderful list to bookmark.
Thank you, Jim!
Don't forget the trolls that are here to cause factions within the conservative movement. These will stir up the very issues that are most threatening to our causes.
Remember: "A house divided against itself cannot stand" To paraphrase a great man and Republican Abraham Lincoln, who remembered these as the word of God.
I don't think you want to start that here.
too late now :>)
And a very good one at that freedomalliance.org being another good one, I hope we all sign on to their "I am mad as hell and am not gonna take it anymore" movement! That should be our battle cry, and we are in abattle.
It's the Marxist in the "Republican" party that have me tweaked... I refuse to fund more of the same. It makes me sick. The only way to maintain my sanity is let go.
I just got the Senate survey and solicitation for money from the Republicans yesterday. I wrote my opinions on every spare empty space I could, and although I am not inclined to give them money this time around, I will anyway. There really is no choice at this time. It is either R's or D's, and we have to pick a party, and try to grab it by the short hairs and steer it back to the right.
Thank you for making us realize what is actually at stake with your excellent overview Mr. Robinson. And thank you for making it possible for us to communicate with this great web site.
What "freedom" are evolutionists supposedly allowed that no one else seems privileged with?
9/11/2001...My wake up call....
When they get a spine I'll give a dime.
"Rats" or "Republicans",,,
The one thing that the Republican party has apparently forgotten is that conservatives don't vote Republican, we vote conservative. Which means, that while we may never vote for a Democrat in the general election, we have no problem replacing a "Republican" with a conservative in the primaries.
If you have to remind us we are conservative I think it is to late
Good advice. I will never vote for a Dem and I will never sit out an election to punish the Republicans.
Thank you Jim because of standards like these, it is such a great and informative site.
The religion part seems to be a sticky wicket.
OH NO! LOL
Thank goodness! From the posts I've been reading lately, I thought I was the only one who believed this.
Bill Clinton was in for 8 long years thanks to the Ross Perot voters.
