Come on guys, this is silly.

Can’t we be the loyal opposition without becoming DU-lite or RightWingKos?

I’m 100% sure the Dems will over-reach in the next two years. Let’s work towards gaining ground in the Congress in 2010.

Remember, the Dems were in the wilderness for 8 years. Let’s not act as they did. Let’s be better.

And invest in a tax lawyer who shares our view of government.

Not a penny more for socialism than necessary.

Take a sabbatical, if you can.

I think there’s a good possibility that by spring, any organized boycott will be a moot point because the economy will have slipped past the point of recession and into depression. There might not be much to boycott! The $800B bailout inspired no confidence, and neither do socialist politicians at the helm. The markets here in America will reflect this.

There’s a great entrepreneurial opportunity.

I was pleased to notice PetSmart is a RED company. Its my dog’s favorite store.

Thank God Baldwin Pianos is also a red company, (I know this from personal experience.) I’d hate to get rid of my beloved SD-10 concert grand.

I don’t understand. What are the criteria for determining whether a firm is liberal or conservative? How are these percentages arrived at?

I am willing to act as much as possible, but I need to know what the rationale is for making these decisions.

The Dems were never in the wilderness. When they lost the senate for those few years under Bush, they still had a very powerful minority. The pendulum never swung as far to the Right as it had, and is tonight to the Left.

Spend NOTHING! Buy as much stuff as you can from the used market, grind the economy to a halt. And try as much as you can to avoid spending even a penny in the states that went for Zero, they need to be punished severely.

I use dogpile.com which is a meta search engine; it combines searches from about 8 - 10 different sources. I think they’re objective; I don’t think they lean either way.

Just start buying what you need on craigslist if you can. Avoid sales tax. Start buying used items. Avoid the taxes when you can. Start developing some relationships with others in your area. You may find you can find someone you can trust and develop a source for things you need. You may have something(s) they need too.

I think a more effective strategy is to put greedy Americans on a severe diet. “Starve the beast”, as one FReeper aptly put it. Every time you walk into a store of any kind, whether it’s a clothing store, bookstore, deli, whatever, ask yourself, “how do I think this person voted?” It will be easier to answer with some people than others, especially depending on where you live. Where I live, I think I can approach 99% certainty in a LOT of cases. Then, ask yourself, “is there any way, ANY WAY AT ALL, that I can avoid supporting this person’s paycheck? Is there any way I can compensate for the $500 Obama Check(tm) that this person will steal from my wages? Use your imagination — I’m sure you can.

1. KEEP your old car. Detroit unions share a LOT of blame for MI going Dem year after year. If you’re a fan of American cars as I am, fine, but KEEP YOUR RIDE. It’s cheaper to keep it running than to buy new, and you’re starving the beast in the process. If the industry crashes, perhaps you’ll be doing MI a favor in the very long run when they won’t be beholden to those unions.

2. NEVER buy movies — buy a Hauppauge capture card and a $50 DVD burner. Buy Sage TV for DVR software. You’ll have hundreds of dollars in a short while and NOT ONE CENT will go to Hollywood. I made that decision years ago.

3. Don’t eat out, cook instead, even if it’s from the frozen food section. How did those restaurant workers vote? I’ll bet I can guess with surprising accuracy.

4. Needle and thread isn’t for wusses. It’s just a wrench for your clothes. “The right tool for the right job”, as our fathers and grandfathers used to scream at us. Save your dollars.

5. “Did I make interest work for me today?” Write it on an index card NOW. I literally just did that and I have it on my TV as a constant reminder. Don’t spend your hard-EARNED — EARNED!!! — dollars on greedy losers who want to steal from you. Make your money work for you, not them.

Email and share. Append your ideas as you can. Please. It’s time to hang together.

It’s hard to see how some of these companies did as much damage as other big names which supported the MSM with their advertising dollars. For example, Coors Beer (which is junk anyway) was once owned by conservatives (I don’t know if they still are), but their ad spending makes them a major enabler of the Leftist propaganda machine.

Loyal Opposition? Sure... But, that doesn’t mean we have to support their supporters with OUR FEW REMAINING DOLLARS.

Why would you knowingly give money to the opposition?

Silly? Not in the least. I vote with my wallet EVERYDAY.

Breyers is excellent!

I used to think it was silly to boycott ice cream, but I simply could not eat Ben and Jerry’s after the start of the War.

Don’t buy their crummy newspapers either or even check ‘em out online. I have some friends that are conservatives and news junkies and they just have to have the Washington Post!!

"avoid spending even a penny in the states that went for Zero"

Unfortunately, I live in Illinois.

Does Texas have any contract electronics manufacturing services that could use someone with 28 years of experience?

How about Idaho?

This is a great idea. It needs to be on here all the time and updated. It would also be a good idea to write a letter to all the companies you do business with and tell them why you will not purchase anything from them again.

Progressive is disgustingly Liberal, as is Ben & Jerry’s. Not sure how often the website in the link is updated, but at the very least, we should have an ongoing accurate list on free republic in order to avoid the SOCIALIST companies. FR doesn’t have an edit button...not sure how to have an ongoing Socialist Boycott list. Any suggestions?

Boycott? Pffft! Usually short lived, mostly unorganized, and seldom effective.

Here is what's to be done.. (and should already have been done) Do not provide social nor familial support to any lib ever. Would anyone of righteous direction engage with an active, eagerly violent, unrepentant, child rapist and advocate of child rape?

(Just so I don't have to argue later: a lib agenda will produce more child rapists. Liberalism is the disease, child rape is one symptom.)

No, anyone of righteous direction would not socialize nor subsidize nor have seated at ones dinner table such a child rapist. Nor should they with a lib. How many libs would be so caviler if they knew they were being rejected by those they love? That their self indulgence came with a real price? Now they suffer no consequence.

Sure it's tough.. but missing your nephews birthday party is small sacrifice compared to that of the civilian and military souls lost already in the war on terror.

Shun every leftist you know, tell them they are evil and tell them they are dead to you.

From now on when I encounter a lib-symph I will regard that person as someone who abets in the theft of my liberties and the wealth I have created.

The first company I will boycott is GE and all of its products and companies GE owns products. I will then boycott every company that advertises on MSNBC and NBC — I will write a letter to each company that advertises on their stations letting them know why.
