Skip to comments.Newbie to Free Republic
Posted on 03/19/2012 1:17:13 PM PDT by TPD_Jim.Smith
I am new to Free Republic. I look forward to being a small part of this community.
I see by many of the postings that most of the posters on this website are ANTI-Romney. That is good because I am too. I am a conservative from Tallahassee, Florida.
I am torn between Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum. Reading some of the postings I see there are passionate folks on the Newt side as well as on the Rick side.
I am leaning toward Rick Santorum because I think he can best beat Romney in the Primary and frankly I think ANYONE can beat Obama in the general. So my gut tells me to support the most conservative in the race.
I am also a Christian Homeschooling dad so you might see why I favor Rick Santorum but I can support Newt in the general election should he win the nomination. I don't think I can stomach voting for Romney though.
Any advise for a newbie?
Are you having trouble posting a reply? Please see the html sandbox.
Geez, not just the news forum, but Braking newz! (rolls eyes)
Which explains some things.................
Please just clean up the mess afterwards!
Welcome to Baraq Sheik Obama’s enemies list.
Set down, buckle up, it could be a bumpy flight. If you have to go to the bathroom raise your hand, and remember the coffee and water's for the crew.
....Wait, that's for a different thread. Welcome aboard and have a nice flight.
Im in Tallahassee also. Welcome!!!
Sacrilege! A tin foil hat on Mittens.
Besides, his magic underwear takes care of all such dangers.
Welcome to FreeRepublic......If you would like to remain a member, my advice to you is to keep your political opinions to yourself until after the bloodletting and the GOP candidate is elected.
I would also warn you against posting articles from Blogs lest you be considered a "Blog pimp" and accused of being the author of that blob by one anal retentive blog nazi.
In other words, while this site was once a friendly gathering spot of like minded individuals, it has become a fight club and a source of amusement for those "others" over at DU and other leftwing forums who continually post comments from individuals here and joke about their hypocrisy............
Very disappointing. All, including Jim, I will vote for Romney.
Welcome to FR.
Don't waste your time posting topics until you are fully aware of what's acceptable..and the typical attacks you are going to get.
Never walk alone through the Hurtgen Forest
One more thing. Don’t ever admit you shot a dog as a tpd officer.
I think you've drawn the wrong conclusion about this website. Nothing political going on here.
Mostly a family oriented chat-site talking about cheese eating moose, sisters in showers, Italians etc but no politickin' going on here......
Yes, have a thick skin, don’t take yourself too seriously and learn to spell and to make paragraphs, in that order :-)
Who you work for?
so, does anyone remember ash?
It's the Hat Mitt of Invisibility
First thing that came to mind, so.....
I can't recall ever replying to you. Probably have though....
First off...I'd not have advised the noob the way you did...
It's apparent you have some beef with many other individual poster's here, and you of course should have pinged them.
( I won't do it now...but it is custom, right??? )
...But it's made you appear like a crusty, grudge holding anti-FReeper...that maybe read's more DU...than FR??????
FWIW...I've never read a thing over at DU.
Call it like you see it.........
Ash Alert!!! How about that great anti-semite A+Bert?
And MiaT’s bandwidth busting creepy graphics...
As it is, he's nothing more than a gun-grabbing, pro-abortion, big government statist. RomneyCare is but just one his numerous faults.
I'm surprised the original poster fails to grasp this. It's certainly made clear enough here on FR and the boss has repeatedly emphasized NO ROMNEY, NO WAY!
back in my dial up days I did laundry, made dinner, walked the dog and painted the house....it was still loading.
Hi Jim! Brave of you for posting so soon ; people here love to tease.
Welcome. I’m a homeschooling mom in the Los Angeles area, belly of the beast.
I believe that Santorum could beat both Romney and Obama. Santorum is not slick, but he’s intelligent. He is real, where Romney is scripted and phony. I was listening to rush where they played Dead Intern in the Morning Joe, with Santorum today, and he pressured him on “why the birth control issue” and Santo slapped him down beautifully! I was cheering in my car. Do not fall for the media trying to frame him as a social conservative only.
There are a lot of newt supporters here, who don’t realize newt is now helping Romney in the delegate race. If Santorum can win a plurality in some of the states, he can guarantee mitt zero. He can’t do that with Newt siphoning off 10-15%. Newt is personally a deeply needy man, which can affect the use of his full intellect. He’s a better debater and he is shot through with genius ideas, but he’s not likely to be the best steward of the presidency or remember he is our representative. He has not been consistent in conservative ideals either.
That helped me pick Santorum, because after Cain I carefully chose between the rest, and that was when Newt was doing well AND debating once a week. He is too desperate for love and attention, and we’ve recently had two of his personality type in the WH, Clinton and Obama, and see where that gets us?
Good luck here.
Yep, I’m Olde enough to remember ash ...
Oh my gosh. Those used to creep me out and there were pages of graphics on some threads.
Somewhere there’s a forgotten FReeper with AOL dead at the computer and it still hasn’t finished loading.
The zombie Hillary was the creepiest.
I did.....By the way, ever wonder why it takes so long for the FReepathon to reach its goals these days compared to 12 years ago? Ever give any thought as to why the number of old timers is dwindling down?
And lets bring up civility, shall we? "Back then" members weren't excoriated and mocked for their GOP candidates of choice nor were they banned, civil discourse was the requirement........
As far as my comment about leftwing sites picking up outrageous comments from members here, you can only find them if the member has a weird screen name that is not common to google.
And for what it's worth, using the same process, I outed a newbie who had a penchant for trolling on a site dedicated to incest After bringing it to his attention, he hasn't returned..........
Like it or not, this site is not the same one it was 12 years ago......
You had better get down here soon while you still can get out.
Helooooooooooo! Are you still there?
It’s a good idea to respond to your fellow freepers. It’s not nice to post and run.
We might have scared him off.
