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:

Islamofascism/terrorism
National Security/Defense
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 family
Education
Health care
Private property
Taxation
Oil/energy
The right to keep and bear arms
The right to freedom of religion
The right to self-governance
All of our God-given rights
The Constitution
The Republic
Liberty itself

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.

I would also like to remind everyone, that Free Republic does not condone racism...

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!

BTTT!

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.

So do I and I don't fear them because
"Greater is he that is me than he that is in the world"
But they are allowed freedom here that no one else
seems to privileged too. I have been here quite a while
and plan to stay for a lot longer.
I love FR and what it stands for.
My suggestion to everyone would be to let them have
their threads and don't argue are try to presuade
or convince them. Just save that breath and blow
your coffee with it.
Thanks for allowing me to get this off my chest.

""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 !!!

I agree with you, just a couple of questions in addition though:

What happens when posters who are anti-American but loves the EU/China or whatever signs up and posts flaming anti-US posts? I have seen quite a few Europosters and Chinese nationalists registered over the last couple of months and some of their manners are extremely obnoxious. Others are slightly more polite but there is no doubt they DO NOT intend to listen to conservative arguments - but rather, trying to persuade us to their (Euro-socialist/Chinese nationalist) viewpoints. Should these be given the boot?

And are there criteria specifically for non-US posters? Some would consider themselves conservatives/nationalists relative to their own country's interests, but they perceive their country's national interests directly conflict with those of the United States of America. So they believe they must work against the United States' interests. Should these posters be welcomed here as well?

Many thanks in advance, and keep up the work.

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 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.

"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.

I've caught what, I'm pretty sure, were pro-homosexualist apologists here on occasion - usually when some big gay issue was in the public spotlight. They just spout their propaganda and eventually leave. I guess they don't like the atmosphere.
