Once the liberals succeeded in getting us to fight amongst ourselves, instead of against them, things changed.

Probably the widening gulf of inconsistency between the stated philosophy and the real-life actions of the Republican Party got to be too much for many people.

I'm guessing it's because the news for conservatives has been primarily bad for the last year. Even those who are supposedly on "our side" have betrayed the cause. It's no wonder people are spending time elsewhere.

What makes you think those numbers are correct?

Just because you saw it on the internet???
Ask Jim if they're correct or not before you go trying to diagnose the "problem."


(PS: I can tell you why Michelle Malkin's numbers are down: it relates to her stabbing other conservatives in the back - maybe just those that are blonder than her?)

Loss of GOP power, disgust at Bush and the dearth of conservative 2008 presidential hopefuls are fueling discouragement among conservatives.

Many don't feel they have a horse in the race anymore.

You are comparing apples and oranges. As the market, that is individuals with internet access, increases, even if the number of folks tapping the sites remains constant, the market share will appear to decline.

We've also had a run of milder winters.

All of that means that a "year" a decade ago is simply not the same as a "year" currently.

Going a bit further we now have numerous discussion sites that've gone "private". They are password controlled and there's never going to be any new blood there. We have no idea what they're saying and they don't care. Their share will grow. That's because people get tired of listening to others' uninformed opinions and BS.

Did you notice that most are going up? We are going down. FR has become more chatty as time goes by.

Political wind is blowing against us. Leads to disenchantment, boredom, purges, etc. Witness the fight between Rudy and anti-Rudy FReepers, exchanges like that tend to drive people away, especially lurkers.

Most of us are in a state of depression. The Republicans we elected 12 or so years ago turned out to be carbon copies of the Democrats they replaced.

I'm sure the bitchy Giuliani hags ragging on real conservatives who don't support pro-abortion, anti-gun candidates have something to do with it.

If you like vitriol directed at one political candidate or another things are great now (I've been in that mood myself). But if your interests touch other sorts of topics, it's a real downer nowadays. Non-political threads (say medical or scientific) have been getting just a handful of replies and many of those are worthless retread "humor". I've been branching out to life beyond the computer myself to deal with it. A good thing (I mean the branching out).

I have evolved as a conservative and am searching for a plan of action. I am sick of just reading headlines and talking about them. I want to do something. Maybe everyone is getting restless like me. I am ready for Texas and Oklahoma to withdraw from the Union!! I do not want to give my children a future consisting of the consequences of a liberal and corrupt government.
