One more time:
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.
Free Republic is private property. It is not a government project, nor is it funded by government or taxpayer money. We are not a publicly owned entity nor are we an IRS tax-free non-profit organization. We pay all applicable taxes on our income. We are not connected to or funded by any political party, news agency, or any other entity. We sell no merchandise, product or service, and we offer no subscriptions or paid memberships. We accept no paid advertising or promotions. We are funded solely by donations (non tax deductible gifts) from our readers and participants.
We aggressively defend our God-given and first amendment guaranteed rights to free speech, free press, free religion, and FREEDOM of ASSOCIATION, as well as our constitutional right to control the use and content of our own personal private property. Despite the wailing of the liberal trolls and other doom & gloom naysayers, we feel no compelling need to allow them a platform to promote their repugnant and obnoxious propaganda from our forum. Free Republic is NOT a liberal debating society. We are conservative activists dedicated to defending our GOD-GIVEN rights, defending our constitution, defending our republic and defending our traditional American way of Life.
Our God-given Life, Liberty and freedoms are NOT negotiable!!
For God, Family, Country, Life and Liberty!!
If you cannot live with the above, fine, but keep your mouth shut about it while on FR. Don't fight against us on ANY of our deeply held beliefs!!
DON'T TREAD ON ME!!
Anti Life & Liberty trolls will be ZOT on sight!!
I’m in the same boat. I know non-believers are a minority here, but they haven’t kicked me off after 10 years.
Amen Jim, Amen.
God bless America, FreeRepublic, and Jim Robinson
Best keep your ZOT button well oiled, I think you'll be using it a lot leading in to 2012 ;^)
FUBO is also a fashion statement. I wear it on a T shirt and a bumper sticker.
It is unwise to excused folk that disagree with us on any issue.
We gain nothing from our experience on this form if we cannot test our ideas against those who disagree with em. Nor are our ideas worth anything if they cannot withstand endless challenge from every direction.
I must advice strongly that you allow liberals even socialist to post on this web-sight at least in them sections which are open to debate, rather then planning real world activity.
Thank you Jim. You are a true patriot.
So, how’s about we get a button set up like they have on all these other sites.... “I have read the terms and accept the conditions”.
Thank you, Jim.
I worry about you getting carpel tunnel in your right zot hand. Please try alternating and using your left zot hand.
Those who do not understand this fundamental truth or are unwilling to defend it to the death can KMA on the way out the door!!
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Well you’d think it would be obvious. A conservative web-site that bills itself as such, the prevailing political opinions are going to be conservative. Ok so far but then you get the “D’ rats/libs/Lefties ‘n’ God knows- what- else lands here and they start acting like a bunch of vegetarians who walked into a steakhouse and found out to their horror there’s meat on menu!
“No thank you. FR is not a debating society. Our unalienable rights are not subject to debate and are NOT negotiable.
Those who do not understand this fundamental truth or are unwilling to defend it to the death can KMA on the way out the door!! “
While this is no doubt a fundamental truth, finding ways to explain this truth to liberals as to get them to peacefully respect our rights rather then force us to take more drastic and i dare say much more costly action is something that requires our skill in debate.
The same could be said of independents.
Like it or not we live in a world crafted largely by government to have many people if not the majority of people be its blind serfs.
They will listen to reasoning and the natural inclinations of their heart but only if we learn to speak to that reasoning and inclination as to “light the flame of liberty” within them.
This is not something we can do by force of arms, not with so many drones against us, nor is it something that we should desire to do by force of arms when the natural truths of our position can be used to liberate many if not most of our countrymen.
WE NEED TO GROW OUR NUMBERS!
So the question is what is the function of Freerepublic.com?
Is it to speak to the choir, or is it to help devise ways to liberate and restore our once Free Republic?
I think we can agree that we are in a great need of arms to wage this war for our rights. Arms of words and ideas, not just the guns and bombs of the wars of force.
Indeed when we win this fight with ideas we will have all Guns and Bombs of war we will need if necessary to secure our rights with force from those tyrants that still stubbornly refuses to leave us alone.
But until then remember that the pen(The keyboard) is mightier then the sword... Let us conservatives learn among our brothers how to uses that pen to wage this war in the only way we can, thou practice and challenge.
Let us defend our rights with reason.
Your point of view is garbage. How's that for debate? Is that what you think is useful?
This site is CLEARLY dedicated to CONSERVATIVES talking amongst themselves in an attempt to further the CONSERVATIVE agenda. Endlessly debating marxists/communists/socialists/anarchists/American liberals/democrats/RINOs etc... simply wastes time and annoys us.
Please read the home page. Jim Robinson has made it very clear what Free Republic, HIS PRIVATE PROPERTY, is all about.
Failure to conform to these simply community rules will end in eviction - ZOT!.
Get it? You are free to disagree elsewhere. Not here. Get it now?
Enjoy your stay on Free Republic.
Nothing good can ever come from allowing socialists a voice.
The 1930’s and 1940’s should have shown you that.
There can be no debate with an ideaology that does not hold freedom to be of value.
For those on my ping list who have not seen this yet. It is a heads up from Jim about what FR is. It is something that needs to be repeated from time to time as Jim did today.
God Bless America, FreeRepublic, and JR.
If you don’t like FR, leave. I won’t be changing it to suit you or any other lily-livered, weak-kneed coward.
There is zero commonality between freedom and socialism, there is zero commonality between freedom and liberalism.
How is letting liberals run rampant, letting socialism run unchecked ‘growing in numbers’?
I second the motion!
The other day we had a college professor, one Gilbert Wilkes the IV from Alberta Canada, try to use Delphi techniques to troll FR.
His handle was a tipoff, “casuist”, and he took to a formulaic posting style:
“I’m no [insert profession here], BUT [insert sort irrelevant crap here], I’m not passing judgement, I’m just saying.” -being an example of one of his posts.
FR is a website for conservatives and conservative ideals.
Says so on the front page
If you’re here to troll or try to insert liberal ideas, we have several people onsite who are very good at dealing with trolls and trolling personalities.
The Function of FR is stated in teh Mission Statement.
I suggest you read it.
It’s listed on the front page as wel;l.
From one Pro-God Bigot to another:
“Nothing good can ever come from allowing socialists a voice.
The 1930s and 1940s should have shown you that.
There can be no debate with an ideology that does not hold freedom to be of value.”
The 1930’s and 1940’s witness a time in which liberals not conservative controlled the vast majority of the government and media. It was our voice not theirs which was most often suppressed, and never allowed to be debated.
We slowly started to defeat them over the ensuring decades as both their systems began to fail and we slowly started to articulated and more widely speak the truth about their evil nature.
We can beat them on any battlefield in which we are both allowed experienced to fight. Conservative most of whom do not innately know all the weaknesses of the leftist big government position nor are capable of enumerating the numerous evils their socialized central planing creates for a civilization, must learn and discover theses thing, just as they must learn and discover all things.
If FreeRepublic does not wish to be a forum in which we can learn to confront our enemy’s we will have to learn such lessons on other forms and spread what we learn here.
LOL, speak of the Kitties and they shall “Murr” and gather interest in the proceedings.
(I alluded to the Kitties and others in 272.)
“If you dont like FR, leave. I wont be changing it to suit you or any other lily-livered, weak-kneed coward.”
I crafted my opinion in hopes of adding to reasoned judgment not replacing it. I have no grievance with the way you manage your web-sight, nor do i have right to any.
It is your web-sight not mine.
to your judgment, not but in the end the choice is your, and I will go with you either way.
I am your friend and ally in this cause, not your enemy. The most of the ideals you hold in limited government burn as brightly(maybe more so) within my heart as they do in yours.
My opinion on the matter before is us only that for you to judge and reject as you have.
If you wish to hold hands and make kissee-kissee with the enemy, then you’re no friend of mine!!
“The 1930s and 1940s witness a time in which liberals not conservative controlled the vast majority of the government and media. It was our voice not theirs which was most often suppressed, and never allowed to be debated.”
Surprise, liberals STILL control the media and the STILL suppress dissenting views.
Our mission is to keep the light of day on them and destroy them.
NOT give them more room to destroy this country.
Just about every forum EXCEPT FR is one in which conservatives fight with others. Many FReepers spend much time on these sites.
Free Republic is different in that we are here among FRiends and don't need to be convinced to become a battlefield like every other site out there.
Perhaps you'd be happy at a different battlefield.
I have high doubts that Mono there is a conservative.
Especially since they keep saying that liberals need a voice.
Liberals have NPR, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, most newspapers...
They have all the voice they need.
They even had Err Amerika to ‘counter’ conservative talk radio.
What more does Mono want?
“Free Republic is a pro-life, pro-family, pro-liberty constitutional conservative activist web site. Those who cannot live with that should simply stay away!! (saves wear and tear on my zot button - bitterly clinging redneck, Jim)”
It just so happens that I’m a pro-life, pro-family, pro-liberty constitutional conservative activist...
Is this why I spend so much time lurking?
Because I heard all their crap and I can't think of a single one.
I consider FR to be a Conservative Think-Tank which builds ideas upon themselves.
100% access to all conservative platforms I would guess. More chance at disruption and discord. I also guess that he won't be very successful here.
I also wonder if he is part of an early attack, there may be more like him coming? English may be a second language, outsourcing astroturf?
You are still pro-gun aren’t you?
Pretty likely on all counts, actually.
One thing I’ve noticed: FReepers are usually pretty cognizant of trolls and will tolerate them only so long as they remain amusing.
With some trolls, they become amusing only after they get the zot.
I’d say we’re in for another troll flood.
We’re actually overdue.
Agreed. And Mr. JimRob's instincts have been engaged the past couple days, too, and there's a whole lot o' fryin goin on.
Things have been slow (and kinda boring) for awhile. It's likely to pick up and stay busy for quite awhile now.
I’ll catch back up with this later.
Probably after crawling in under alot of troll smoke.
Just did a quick troll count.
As per our unalienable right, armed to the teeth and fully invested in lead. Much more bang per the buck than gold.
“”Nor are our ideas worth anything if they cannot withstand endless challenge from every direction.”
Your point of view is garbage. How’s that for debate? Is that what you think is useful?”
If the forum owner was interested in a debate forum such accusations could be eliminated or ignored. Again its up to him not me to decide what he wants with HIS forum.
My remark was merely to state what I felt was a self-evident fact about what could be gained by having a forum in which liberal spamers can be effectively and demonstratively dealt with by other conservatives.(Which we have a lot of, as to show each other how to deal with such things).
“This site is CLEARLY dedicated to CONSERVATIVES talking amongst themselves in an attempt to further the CONSERVATIVE agenda.”
Yes your right it was, I simply suggested to the forum owner that goal might perhaps better be accomplished by driving the liberals out with reason and banning only the spammers.
It is, in my opinion at least, of great utility to constantly have my opinions and positions tested by the worse our enemy can come up with to throw at em.
” Endlessly debating marxists/communists/socialists/anarchists/American liberals/democrats/RINOs etc... simply wastes time and annoys us. “
You and the forum administrator may be right on this, In any-even it really doesn’t matter, as i was merely making a suggestion, it is His not my or your call.
I would agree it is possible if we end up having the exact same debate over and over again that it would get a bit redundant and annoying, but its also helpful in helping people to improve upon their rebuttal.
In any case I simply wanted to add my 2 cents, i thank you and the forum owner for taking the time to both reading and judge it.
There is nothing to be gained by letting liberals/socialists have a voice.
Didn’t you learn that from the 1930’s and 1940’s?
Did you learn nothing from that at all?
You found it!
Great heading! Hopefully libs and RINOs will get the message!
It sure doesn't. The guy on This Thread (posts 77 & 79) is a good example...lol. The ozone was strong with that one!
