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 dunno. Fred Thompson fits, though.
Uh oh, now you really done it. :O)
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.
well... a lot closer "fit" than "rhuuuudy"
The only important difference between Nazi - ism, Fascism, Communism, Socialism and Liberalism is the spelling, and that the last group hasn't got the brains to figure it out.

Is this a Rudy bashing post? Why don't you spend your time bashing Hillary?
Rudy's support of abortion on demand right up until birth has undermined whatever leadership or conservative qualifications he possesses.
ROTFLMAO. Never seen it summed up so well.
Yup, that pretty musch sums up my stand also.
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.
I don't know, and I for one, am getting sick and tired of seeing this preeminent conservative forum being used to shill for a liberal candidate. We're a CONSERVATIVE site and we should be espousing and defending conservative points of view.

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.
Frankly, you could ask the same thing about President Bush. How does he fit in with all of those characteristics? Smaller government?
Fred Thompson is pro-choice.
Bump for late reading.
Precisely. I could vote for Jim Robinson. That is a most excellent statement. Rudy? No way!
Bush at least defended the unborn & waged war on the terrorists. I agree that he should have used the veto pen more though.
oh boy, settle down.
I HAVE - NUMEROUS TIMES.. Giuliani is to the LEFT of Bush.
This from a guy who has been here less than 2 1/2 years. :)
I think Giuliani fits in here somewhere.
Duncan Hunter fits better!!
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.
"As time has gone on, you've seen more liberals arrive at FR."
Yes. I have always thought it was a matter of infiltrating and demoralizing the opposition, and to provide fodder for the alphabet networks.
I don't want Giuliani and the Rockefeller Republicans to ruin the party Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan worked so hard to protect and develop.
"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.
Rudy? He's for all of the above except 2 and 6. But evidently, 11 out of 13 isn't good enough.
How else to explain the legions that came out in favor of a guest-worker plan. This is not a thread hijack...I'm just sayin'...
Hmm... Have you made the case for or against gambling yet?
I think Rudy got ZOTTED earlier in the year.
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!"

Why would any good Republican Bash another Republican? Especially Rudy, a guy that has helped so many Conservative candidates in the last election.
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?
You are correct. I'm wondering if this is a turning point at FR.
Shouldn't we concentrate on defeating Hillary and maintaining the White House first, and less bickering amongst FReepers?
You're quite the operative.
Best of luck with that.
, hey it's you again! you still shouldn't gamble!
Only one word comes to mind in response. AMEN!
