Everyone please send whatever you are able to, whether it is $10, $100 or $1,000+. The DUmmies, Morons, Kos Kiddies and that crew are laughing up their sleeves. Jim may have to make this site members only or allow ads. Better for us to just help with what we can. Maybe you can donate as a memorial for a lost loved one, a servicemember who never made it home or was disabled defending our country. Perhaps you'd like to give to keep free discussion alive and to show them that we're not knuckling under. I'm sure a well thought out or prayerful meditation will lead you to see the need and how you can help. If every registered FReeper and our lurkers would each just help out with a fin or a sawbuck, or better yet a Ben Franklin, we could put this to bed and get on with the conservative cause.
“But, those who are supporting Romney because they think he is miles ahead of Obama are indeed getting the bums rush.”
I don’t even think he’s “miles” ahead of Obama, but he’s not an anti-capitalist, pro-Muslim Brotherhood, Marxist who’s on a jihad to bring down this country. In the eyes of some hereon, that means I’m “campaigning for Romney”. Blithering nonsense.
I 100% agree with what you said. The fact of the matter is if people are openly supporting Obama(and I’ve seen the cheerleading myself here which is disgusting) on this site and that’s OK with the powers that be..... then sadly this site is doomed. It will become a smaller and smaller echo chamber. No true conservative would ever want marxist Obama to have another four years. No one is worse than him, NO ONE!
If you want to choose one Marxist who is in George Soros’s pocket over another Marxist who is in George Soros’s pocket, or a stalking horse for a Marxist who is in George Soros’s pocket, that’s up to you.
As Jim has said, you may vote for whomever you wish, but do not campaign on FR for Marxists like Romney. That is his objection to those who advocate for Romney here.
It truly is that simple, but the simple minded just can’t seem to grasp that plain request.
YOUR LOYAL SUPPORT IS TRULY & GREATLY APPRECIATED!
THANK YOU VERY MUCH, CALIFORNIA, FLORIDA, MISSOURI, NEBRASKA, NEVER NEVER LAND, NEW JERSEY, NEW YORK, TEXAS, URUGUAY & WISCONSIN FReepers!!!!
And were now over THIRTY-ONE percent!!
Thank you for making me LOL. I have been reading every post on this thread. It is making me sad. I count on FR to be a place where many of us have a great deal in common. I have been naive to not have realized the level of controversy and bad feelings that exist.
This isnt a battle with guns. You arent going to make the country more conservative by bunkering down and not voting.
Ask your friends on True Blue.
California CANNOT be ahead of Texas.
First we get disenfranchised and now THIS?
1) Sarah Palin (the biggest reason by far),
2) McCain at least had some redeeming features.
3) Romney is an absolute lemon who takes key GOP campaign issues off the table, and
4) The GOP-E in 2010 showed that for them, party unity only applies when the RINO wins. So calls from the GOP-E for party unity now just don't cut it the way they used to, and
5) Romney's scorched-earth approach to winning the primary makes it all that much harder to reconcile afterwards.
The GOP-E made this bed, not conservatives. We've shown we'll go along. But our eyes have been opened over the last two election cycles (2010 and now). The GOP-E won't be pulling the wool over our eyes any longer.
Sigh...I find it so hard to keep up with who I should be hating on any given day.
Can you define Marxist? I see it thrown around a lot, but define it. What is the difference between a Marxist, Communist, and Socialist. Or, do we just have to keep changing the insult word once the current one loses its bite (RINO has become GOP-e now)?
Why should FR not also take their stand and for that matter "Strengthen Their Position?"
I’ve seen only a very few here who advocate not voting. I’m not voting for Romney, but will write in Palin. Is that what you consider “not voting”?
I keep telling you, GUNNER, that when the Monthlies are rolled, the GREAT STATE of TEXAS will rocket to the top!
I certainly do believe that it is the owner’s right to establish whatever rules or standards he chooses.
I hope he will come around to believing that anyone without visible horns and tail is better than Obama.
This thread makes it pretty obvious how people are feeling about the current posting rules.
Most of them will say yes. How about you?
You sure didn’t want to argue about what Newt has done. Or the fact that he hasn’t had an honest conservative bone in his body for 18 years. Even then in 1994, it was a GOP victory, not a conservative victory. You just listen to words you like and then create a false picture forgiving the sins of those you choose.
Apparently the voters just didn’t agree. That picture of Newt plopped on a couch with the dragon queen ruined his credibility. After Bachmann got slammed, Cain bugged out, Santorum got savaged, who the heck did you think we were going to get?
So here we are, may not be what we wanted, I am not happy it is Romney, but we want Obama even less.
By the way, the religious aspect doesn’t interest me, unless that person is a muslim. I am sick to death of a few screeching loons running around spitting hellfire and hate at good people who are just terrified of 4 more Obama years.
The irony of that statement is incredible.
No, I don’t know that DJ. I voted for Newt and I don’t regret that vote and would do it again. If Sarah had run,she would have had my vote. Cain or Perry would have been acceptable, don’t really like Santorum for many reasons but if it was he was the nominee, of course he would have my vote. ABO
I personally know many Republicans, including some family members, that voted for mittens. They weren’t manipulated(except by me when I attempted to get them to vote for Newt). :P
“The only thing that was asked was that no support for Romney be posted on FR. That seems to be very hard for some to accept. “
What is difficult for some if not most of us is, are we allowed to hope that Romney beats Obama? Are we supposed to be happy when Obama wins or scores a debate point? If we see Romney is ahead in the polling in Florida, can we post the thread and be positive about it?
Well, those Texans with money may not appreciate the Paul picture or the relentless mocking Perry went through.
Everyone here knows exactly what sites I'm speaking of. I'm not going to post links to other conservative forums on a FR fundraising thread (or lack of fundraising thread as the case may be).
Write her in WHY? She doesn't want the job.
You seek to force her to do something she doesn't want to do?
Or are you just throwing your vote into the trash in a way that makes you feel good?
Choices have consequences.
Indeed they do.
Why, what was / is going to happen is / was a brokered convention and Sarah Palin riding to the rescue. Keep up, man.
“By the way, the religious aspect doesnt interest me, unless that person is a muslim. I am sick to death of a few screeching loons running around spitting hellfire and hate at good people who are just terrified of 4 more Obama years.”
Amen (no pun intended).
You know exactly how manipulation works. We saw it 2008. It’s working 2012. Nobody learned anything.
I would say that is pointless, and no one in the Republican party will take it as a sign of your disgust. But there are quite a few advocating for leaving President blank and voting down ticket.
‘Im not voting for Romney, but will write in Palin. Is that what you consider not voting?’
I am also.
Another question to all:
Will folks like us be blamed if/when Obama wins the presidency??
Do you see that after two months this FReepathon is at 30% what is your amazing insight as to why that is? I contributed, probably more than most. And I've never said one pro-Romney comment in my entire 10 year history go through my F#%^^& history!!! Dating back to 9/15/11. Not ONE Pro Romney comment!!! Yet I'm a troll now.
I've given thousands to Free Republic and I'm given the middle finger by you and your other thugs.
So much for thanks for being loyal!
So since you wont' find pro Romney posts let me guess I'm a troll for stating that zots led to the slow fundraising, which is stating the obvious...
Texans with both dollars AND sense know that Paul is a kook and a loon.
And I SORELY wish Perry was still in the game.
You got me mega wrong.
But I don't think that you could figure out why in a 1,000 years.
Hard to believe anyone that faces any kind of reality actually thought that.
Thing is, they don’t ever listen to her. She did say she would not be that person, or something like that. LOL
In all fairness, Ann Coulter did change. She went way left and I’m not sure Rove is magnificent at anything anymore. I guess we will see in November
You actually said something not asinine.
Im not voting for Romney, but will write in Palin. Is that what you consider not voting?
I am also. Will folks like us be blamed if/when Obama wins the presidency??”
Rightly or wrongly, if he wins narrowly that’s especially likely.
That’s disgusting, Humblegunner.
To use a mentally challenged person’s photo like that is beyond revolting.
> “What is difficult for some if not most of us is, are we allowed to hope that Romney beats Obama? Are we supposed to be happy when Obama wins or scores a debate point? If we see Romney is ahead in the polling in Florida, can we post the thread and be positive about it?”
Exactly. I think someone should post the rules so we know how to goosestep properly.
Odd that you’d say this, since I have not mentioned this place except in freepmail to Tribune7. I have not registered there, not posted there, so how else do you get this information? It can ONLY come by reading private Freepmail. Freepers, be on alert. Your freepmail is not private here.
So do I
I do too. My hope was that we could improve the President and Texas Governor in the same day. And Im not making excuses, he stumbled badly out of the blocks. And he had flaws in his past as Governor. But the childishness by some probably did real damage.
