Welcome to Free Republic!

WOW. Great crowd! I was at the rally in Loveland. We had a huge crowd, but sadly, many never made it inside!

Here's a link to my thread. Gov Palin in Loveland

Also, FReeper Theo was at the rally in Colorado Springs and he has pictures that are professional quality.Co Springs Rally pictures

As for posting pictures, you first have to have them on photo bucket, Flicker etc.

After that, if some one doesn't post you instructions, Freepmail me and I'll call you. Once again, welcome to Free Republic.

If CO is going to swing to McCain, it’s going to take the voters in parts of the state like Grand Junction to win it to offset how Hussein ends up doing in Denver, Boulder, and the resort towns.

Sarah Palin is awesome and she is for limited government like I am.

Like they are doing to Sarah Palin, the liberal mainstream media is demonizing this Republican Congresswoman http://www.michelebachmann.com/ . The media is lying to get another socialist/Democrat into Congress in her place. The dominoes are falling.

Mark Levin says she needs all our help to fight them off. Pleas Email this to all your friends and tell everyone to go on her website to help out. Plus America needs this good conservative in Congress to keep the Marxist/Democrats in check.

Something is a brewing.... She gets 60,000 in Fl. Gets more viewers to her speech than Barry. Gets more viewers to her debate. Breaks records for SNL. I have hope that the silent majority of “Joe the Plumbers” might pull this thing out for us after all. That is my prayer. Please Lord, let it be so.

My #1 reason for not voting for Obama.

1. Obama’s and the Democrats’ socialism will devastate America's economy, destroy freedom , eliminate our liberty, take away our human rights like property rights , wreck civilization, and ruin the prosperity that capitalism has brought America.

As your 22 shows Obama is a racist. And isn't Obama a Muslim? That's my #2. Someone should tell the media that 9/11 wasn't a movie and that Islam is at war with America.

Meanwhile, Obama high tails it to Hawaii to visit grandma,
Not buying it.

If hussein loved grandma so much why is’nt she here, on the
mainland, to cheer on her favorite grandchild? To join with
him in the world’s greatest event?

Big crowd ping! Palin 22K yesterday.

Obama was in Tampa Bay, directly across the street from the Buccaneers stadium, a city of four million in the Metro area- while Grand Junction is a hundred miles west from Colorado Springs in the middle of the Rockies, population 45K- HALF THE CITY CAME OUT TO SEE HER.
