It's not your refusal to support Romney that's the problem.
It's your zotting everyone who says they are going to vote for Romney over Obama that's the problem especially since many of them are long-time residents here and have been loyal and generous donors.
Now, I don't like Romney. Come Tuesday, I'm voting for Gingrich. Then what?
Let's say Romney winds up being the nominee as is highly likely. You expect to have a thriving political site with discussion banned of either Romney or Obama this election year?
If Obama wins I think it's over for this nation. If Romney wins I think we are going to come back especially as how his coattails will bring in a lot of good people at the local level -- assuming of course that people who think like you (and me) don't stay home.
It's not about personalities or individuals anyway. It's about ideas and our ideas are on Romney's side.
So yes, I'm voting for Romney. Feel free to zot although I'm not asking for one.
Forget the advertising as I don't think people will be coming here with discussion banned regarding the presidential election.
If you want to save this site, what I'd suggest is you do a mea culpa and invite the Romney people back. You don't have to say you're going to support him, just that your not going to zot discussion of the guy.
Save this site??????
Uh, excuse me, but I have not zotted every Romney supporter. But I am a pro-life, pro-family, pro-liberty person and I cannot possibly vote for or support an abortionist, homosexualist statist for president and have posted that fact thousands of times on FR over the last six years or so since the abortionist, homsexualist, RINOs Rudy and Romney had the audacity to run for president as pretend conservatives. No way in hell will that change.
Whether or not Romney supporters get zotted depends 100% on the level of their demonstrated RINOism, belligerence, obnoxiousity, personal attacks, etc, against me, against our conservative candidates, against our conservative positions, or against our members.
I will never excuse Romney for his part in advancing the cause of the culture of death and or his part in murdering millions of our unborn or corrupting our young innocents by promoting and advocating the homosexual agenda or for forcing RomneyCare, now ObamaCare and a likely second term for the Marxist on our nation!!
Sorry, but I cannot state it any plainer than that.
Agreed. I’ve been here since 1998. I’d vote for the neighbor’s cat over Obama. He must be removed for the sake of the country.
Agreed. People aren't donating because they've seen fellow posters banned for offenses they deem minor or not offenses at all. The bannings seem arbitrary to them and thus they will not freely part with their money because one relatively innocuous comment could result in their banning. If you want to increase donations, either allow a true free-for-all dialogue like the kind that existed 10 years ago, or segment the forum into multiple common interest "rooms".
