FreeRepublic Policy Statement
FrreRepublic ^ | Unknown | Jim Robinson

Posted on 03/03/2007 5:38:03 PM PST by ZULU

"Therefore, we wholeheartedly support the Bush Doctrine of pre-emptive strikes on known terrorist states and organizations that are believed to present a clear threat to our freedom or national security. We support our military, our troops and our Commander-in-Chief and we oppose turning control of our government back over to the liberals and socialists who favor appeasement, weakness, and subserviency. We do not believe in surrendering to the terrorists as France, Germany, Russia and Spain have done and as Kerry, Kennedy, Clinton and the Democrats, et al, are proposing.

As a conservative site, Free Republic is pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-Constitution, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-private property rights, pro-limited taxes, pro-capitalism, pro-national defense, pro-freedom, and-pro America. We oppose all forms of liberalism, socialism, fascism, pacifism, totalitarianism, anarchism, government enforced atheism, abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, racism, wacko environmentalism, judicial activism, etc. We also oppose the United Nations or any other world government body that may attempt to impose its will or rule over our sovereign nation and sovereign people. We believe in defending our borders, our constitution and our national sovereignty. "

I think Rudy is popular precisely because people don't know how far to the left he is on so many issues. Once they figure it out he will sink.

The list is long. Somehow people usually forget to include his position on amnesty and borders onto the list.

Except pro-life, that doesn't absolutely exclude him in my mind but it does temper my enthusiasm a bit.

He fits in with the "anti-above". As time has gone on, you've seen more liberals arrive at FR. They're sort of like the Muslims in Europe. They hate where they are, but enjoy the benefits of being there.

I was all for Rudy until the stench of his social liberalism, which he refused to repudiate, became too much to bear.

Rudy's support of abortion on demand right up until birth has undermined whatever leadership or conservative qualifications he possesses.

I wonder if I belong here. My mind is supposed to be made up for me. It appears that we don't try to persuade. We excommunicate.

Why is this happening? This is supposed to be the place where I get the information to make up my own mind on the issue of who gets my vote for president. We are months and months away. But it appears there is a slate of people I should not be allowed to consider, whatever the situation might be when it actually comes time to vote.

Well, okay then.

Posting FreeRepublic's mission statement is bashing Rudy?

It just confirms that Rudy doesn't adhere to any of the conservative beliefs outlined.

Hillery can't destroy the Republican Party and conservatism.

WE can only do that from WITHIN - by LOSING our political and MORAL compasses and supporting a candidate like this man- Giuliani.

Bush at least defended the unborn & waged war on the terrorists. I agree that he should have used the veto pen more though.

Judging by what I've seen around FR, as well as a hysterical reply to a post I just got in my inbox, I think some people are willing to jump on the Rudy bandwagon just because they hear he's the most 'electable' and they want to win at all costs, and believe Rudy is the only way-- of course, it's absurd to think that this election is carved in stone 18 months out, or that any one candidate is the magic bullet and you have to support them RIGHT NOW. It will be a long campaign season, people will join the race, people will leave it, and public opinion will change as they get to know these name-recognition candidates better. Remember, HOWARD DEAN was the Democrat front-runner, too...and didn't make a worthwhile showing to get their nomination. That kind of thing happens all the time.

It's a public forum, and so long as the owners allow, people can support whoever they want.

Even a closet liberal RINO like Rudy.

Yes. I have always thought it was a matter of infiltrating and demoralizing the opposition, and to provide fodder for the alphabet networks.

Rudy? He's for all of the above except 2 and 6. But evidently, 11 out of 13 isn't good enough.

I've already stated that FR will probably become even more conservative than it already is, through attrition if nothing else. Besides continuing to champion the defense of America, FR just might become the "Conservative Conscience of the Republican Party," ie, we may become a real thorn in the side of moderate/liberal Republicanism. Someone has to try defend the party from completely tossing out traditional American conservatism. Might as well be us.


How many times must I say FR is a conservative site? We do not support abortionism, homosexualism, feminisim, environmentalism, gun control, liberalism, socialism, etc, etc, etc. When I say I suspect we will become even more conservative than we already are, possibly via attrition if nothing else, what do you think I'm referring to? When FR starts pushing hard and I mean hard against abortion, gay marriage, homosexual education forced on our school children, pandering to illegal aliens, gun control, McCaine-Feingold type usurpation, global warming, etc, etc, even if supported or advanced by the GOP, then I fully suspect certain types of moderate/liberal Republican supporters are probably going to be a little uncomfortable here. We will be fighting for traditional American conservatism no matter who we have to fight against and I'm afraid that's going to piss off some folks.


And I'll borrow a slogan used by the NFRA that I realy like:

"We are the 'Republican' Wing of the Republcan Party!"

Good question. Rudy has even LESS support at the recent CPAC convention than here!!!

Based on the last 3 FR polls--Guiliani's support at a conservative convention (which will include the real LEADERS of the conservative base of the GOP--the ones that raise the money, volunteer time, get out the vote, etc) was LESS THAN HERE!!

I guess it's no wonder that he was NOT EVEN INVITED to the Republican Convention in 1996!! Why would they invite someone THAT liberal?

Last time I checked FreeRepublic is a fairly "big tent" website, and even GW Bush doesn't perfectly adhere to all the standards above.

Shouldn't we concentrate on defeating Hillary and maintaining the White House first, and less bickering amongst FReepers?

Hmmm...here's what I've picked up at FR today:
He has been consistently conservative on social policy and his help in getting John Roberts confirmed as Chief Justice to the Supreme Court was critical. Thompson has a record in the Senate and he voted conservative, according to the American Conservative Union, eighty-six percent of the time. From: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1794264/posts
and
Voted YES on maintaining ban on Military Base Abortions. (Jun 2000)
Voted YES on banning partial birth abortions. (Oct 1999)
Voted YES on banning human cloning. (Feb 1998)

Looking for more info. Where did you find that he is pro-choice?

Republicans like Rudy because he is willing to stand up and say; Lets kill the (Expletive Deleted, given what they did to Pookie18).

While I do not agree with him on most subjects, like that other former New York Mayor, he gets who the external enemy is.
