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.
Can you reply to the substance of any of my posts without singling out a single word and going off on a tangent about something that has little to do with the discussion? Define Marxism? Socialism? Communism? Why? You want their definitions, go to Wikipedia.
Most trolls respond in that manner when they have no answer to the argument. I have seen it a lot. You may not be an actual troll, so with all due respect, I suggest that you stop responding like one.
I think many are determining in this country what “side” of the divisions nationwide they will stand on now. It isn’t just the Presidency that will change this trajectory....this ship will take much more than one man to turn.... Neither Romney nor Obama have an interest in doing anything more than moving our nation into the Global Community of Governance.....I will not support either....and is the trajectory this nation is on.
Newt was the only one with the ability to weed out what’s in Washington steering this ship....He knew them by name and where they are hidden behind among our own, as well as and in the dark halls lurking...and they knew he knew... and why the force against him was so powerful.
Romney will be most assuredly now be welcomed by both parties....I think we’ll see many Democrates voting for him in order to see the Republicans take the ultimate fall of our nation....then in later elections, after the Republicans have attempted to clean up the Democrates mess...they’ll come in and take the Glory.
I don’t know that Coulter changed all that much. For the record, Ann supported Romney in the 2008 primary, as did Cain, Santorum and Levin.
Don’t be a twit. The post I responded to was addressed to you. *eyes rolling*
The point is you just want to call him a Marxist because that will end the debate, but I doubt you know what it means. And you want to complain about boot lickers? Ha!
For once people are brave enough to speak up about their feelings. Only to prove our point that there are cyberthugs like JoeProBono posting pictures trying to make fun of FReepers here from Day 1.
And you three support this? I have so much respect for you guys but you know why the FReepathon is frozen at 30 after two months. You don't have to be a math genius. I've contributed, but when folks who were vital to funding this website were shown the door or bullied off, this is what happens.
This is the first thread where people have finally spoken up. I'm sure it will lead to another mass purge. And for the tenth time I have not made pro-Romney post in my ten years here. But sad to see so many familiar faces thrown off and mocked. Like a child kicked on a playground with other children cheering.
“There may be more truth in your jest than you think.”
True dat, I don’t mind people posting from their blogs.
We can all click on a link or not as we see fit.
I’m sorry I mentioned it.
For some reason I am not surprised anymore.
I’m too busy looking at the one who has no mask and is quite clear he will do what the eff he wants when the eff he wants and nobody is going to stop him, including the Supreme Court and Congress. He wears no mask, he wants you to see his face.
“The fact of the matter is if people are openly supporting Obama(and Ive seen the cheerleading myself here which is disgusting) on this site and thats OK with the powers that be..... then sadly this site is doomed.”
Made me want to puke the first time I saw it and realized that that was considered preferable to saying “ABO”. I can name at least one person whose paltry donations were affected by that.
Those of you who have been reading FR for all these years and are acting shocked that I would not support Romney must have missed my hundreds of posts on our purposes here.
Just a reminder:
FR is and will remain until my dying day a pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-constitution, pro-liberty, pro-tea party site.
Romney is none of the above.
Plus he lies a lot.
Obama is the very worst Democrat ever. Romney is the very worst Republican ever.
Either way we get the very worst for America.
FR has been in anti-RINO rebellion mode since RudyMcRomney hit the presidential scene six or seven years ago. We made an exception for McCain in 2008 because he was at least pro-life, a veteran, and he chose Sarah Palin, but we all swore we’d never make that mistake again.
How soon we forget.
Anyone who thinks I will support an abortionist, homosexualist, gun-grabbing, liberal judge appointing, mandate loving Keynesian statist for president, obviously does not know me. At all.
If my anti-abortion, anti-homosexualist, anti-statist stand causes some of our long term members to leave us, I hope we can at least part as FRiends.
In that spirit I leave you with this message:
Priority 1 is to save this country which means getting rid of Obama. Me, I started with Perry went (and voted) for Newt who came in dead last in my state, and now I'm rooting for Paul. Hey is saying that I'm rooting for Paul, zottable?
But if Romney is the nominee as expected I'm going to do whatever I can to get him in and get 0 out.
Send a private message to Jim Robinson or JustAmy, give them your name and payment information, and ask that your payments be stopped.
No one is going to zot you for discontinuing your monthly donation.
Sorry, no abortionists!!
I have been nothing but polite to you the last couple of days, both in our open forum exchanges and freepmail exchanges. You really need to take a chill pill.
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...
Well, there are several layers of issues here that extend well beyond this website. And it goes well beyond the zots and the stance of the owner of this website that it won't be used for Romney campaigning. This goes to the core gap that has opened up between the GOP-E and the conservative base. And quite frankly, the GOP-E fired the first shot in this particular war with their backstabbing of Tea Party candidates who defeated their preferred RINOs in the primaries.
Conservatives were told for years that once the primary is over, support the GOP winner. And guess what? We learned in 2010 that the GOP-E only feels bound to that when the RINO wins the primary.
I am asking an open question - with all the issues I have raised that Romney and the GOP-E has done to trash the concept of party unity, how do they propose closing the rift they have created? McCain at least was smart enough to nominate Sarah Palin which energized conservatives. Do you see Romney doing that? The GOP-E loathes Palin because she doesn't play their game.
The old way of party unity is toast. Done in by the very folks now trying to invoke it. Not you, you are still trying to be a good soldier. I am talking about those who have shown they would rather lose the general than win with a conservative candidate. And now they wonder why so many conservatives want to reciprocate 2010 - that conservatives would rather lose than win with their RINO? We didn't set this precedent.
I have no idea how I will vote. I just know the old GOP-E post-primary sales pitch ain't gonna cut it any longer.
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.
DJ I completely understand and I have never posted ‘good’ things about Romney on FR. I have only said I will vote ABO. However, what happens IF, (and let’s face it, it looks like it’s going to happen), Romney is the nominee? What does FR do from then until November? Bash the GOP candidate which helps the Marxist Kenyan?
There will be a handful of Freepers left.
has there ever been a case before where FR did not support the GOP candidate?
Oh but the worst Republican is infinitely better than the worst Democrat.
Regardless, if this is it, I love ya man.
I don't like them either. It's just that I hate abortions more.
“To use a mentally challenged persons photo like that is beyond revolting.”
You can tell someone is mentally challenged by just looking at them?
Jim (and others) continue to insult fellow conservative just because we now support the Republican nominee and he wonders why this freeperthon is going poor.
Romney is not a Republican. He supports NOTHING in the party planks.
Well, guess what? The GOP-E revealed in 2010 that party unity only applies to them when the RINO wins. They backstabbed too many Tea Party conservatives who beat their pet RINOs in the primaries.
The old GOP illusions died that election cycle. And FR hasn't been the same since.
I will not vote for an abortionist/homosexualist/statist for president. And I will not put up a yard sign for him at my home or on my website. That’s just the way it is and no one should be shocked. RINOs be damned. We are the resistance!!
Rebellion is here!!
I feel partly responsible for this thread and how far it’s gone but it IS good and I’m glad people got a chance to express their opinions.
“FR is and will remain until my dying day a pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-constitution, pro-liberty, pro-tea party site.”
But that’s the thing, everyone that has replied to this thread IS a pro-life, pro-family, pro-limited government, pro-constitution, pro-liberty, pro-tea party Republican.
We all are. There is no doubt about it. The only difference is that we differ on one simple thing and it has nothing to do with the above.
Obama cannot be re-elected. Even with an all GOP Senate and all GOP House. He will simply issue executive orders and do an end run around them. This can not stand. The nation cannot take another four years.
Mao Tse Tung and Stalin would be less of a threat then Obama.
Everybody hates a suck up. ZOT! LOL! Just kidding.
I don’t zot, can’t zot, and don’t want to zot anybody.
I just tell a few folks when someone gets him- or herself zotted.
I’d calling it throwing away a vote noone wants
My brother is developmentally delayed.
Your picture of a child with Downs syndrome is despicable.
Please, someone- remove the picture from post #187 from this thread.
It is downright nasty of you to use that picture.
You should pay more attention.
I will not vote for an abortionist/homosexualist/statist for president. And I will not put up a yard sign for him at my home or on my website. Thats just the way it is and no one should be shocked. RINOs be damned. We are the resistance!!
Rebellion is here!!
If not us, who? If not now, when?
But do you see all these people speaking up? You know my opinion of Romney. I haven't kept it a secret that he is a dirtbag you know that, you share my opinion.
What I find unacceptable is that people are afraid to post, afraid of being mocked. Sad they lost their FReeper friends who had supported maybe Perry who is a better choice than Romney, remember that? Even after the Heartless comment wouldn't you prefer Governor Perry? I would! Hell I'd take that drug addict Governor of New Mexico who ran over Romney.
I would never shill for Romney, but I will tell you how evil, insane and out of control Obama is. It doesn't matter if we have the SCOTUS, the House and Senate he'll just appoint more czars, more executive orders and if Scalia dies, good bye Constitution!!!
Now where in that statement did I say vote for Romney? People have been banned for saying the statement I've made above! If the many FReepers finally speaking out on this thread don't show you what the heck happened I don't know what will.
Its the labeling of anyone who says ABO as campaigning for Romney
BINGO!!!!!!!! However, if Romney becomes the nominee, what does FR do until Nov.?
Well .. . an equal threat maybe.
Open post to Jim Robinson and Moderators,
I request to be immediately unsubscribed from Free Republic (or “zotted” or whatever you want to call it).
When I discovered Free Republic sometime back in 1999, it was a thoughtful place which included many knowledgeable people and even some political insiders. (Lucianne Goldberg was only one of several people whose real names, if known, would have been recognized by the informed public.)
Today, reasoned, mature opinion has largely been replaced by hot tempers, rude and crude insults, and even religious intolerance. What was once a forum for mutually-respectful differences of opinion has degenerated into a free-for-all of schoolyard bullies.
Free Republic is still one of the best news aggregators anywhere. However, it is usually a waste of time to read the comments.
It has been very sad to see this process accelerating over the past two years. I kept hoping that more reasonable heads would prevail and bring the content back to its former high level. Now it seems clear that a different mentality permeates the atmosphere.
Yes, ...(for those of you who are about to say it)... Yes, it *is* Jim Robinson’s site and, yes, he can run it any way he chooses. And yes, I realize that if I dont like it, I can go somewhere else.
Thats exactly what I want to do, provided I can get unsubscribed and my account deleted.
Goodbye, Free Republic. It was nice to know you while it lasted.
(OK, let’s see if the slavering attack dogs will now begin to rip me to shreds.)
RN in healthcare management for Down Syndrome adults here.
The photo posted and sentiment implied is disgusting.
The child has Downs syndrome- and it was used in a negative way.
It appears that the picture was taken down- thank you.
Yes, we know you. I know you very well, I think. You are a trusted friend, so let me speak to you as openly and honestly as I can here on this thread. JoeProBono is also a good friend and a valued member of Jim’s FReepathon Team.
Many of the people you are referencing are not good loyal members. They do not support FR like you. Personally, I don’t give a rip about their “feelings”. Some of the others on this thread, are good loyal members and they’re still supporting FR but they’re not slamming Jim, and for me, that’s unforegiveable.
The ones yearning for the old days are talking about FR when RINOS were in power and disccussions were “oh so lovely and open, blaming Bush and trashing him.” I am being sarcastic and not painting an full picture of the times.
Please don’t surrender or take up for folks that aren’t worthy. You’re not in a swing state.
We’re all the better patriots for putting our energies into electing TEA Party patriots to the US Senate and House.
God bless you.
No, but we do have precendent. The GOP-E refused to back a lot of the Tea Party candidates who beat their preferred RINOs in the 2010 primaries - heck, they openly backstabbed them. That showed many folks that for the GOP-E, party unity only applies when the RINO wins.
Why? Why do you enjoy dancing on graves (figuratively)?
Its not just the harpie coven that ruin things, its the damned blogpimp police too.
Who the hell do those guys think they are anyway?
Theyve likely run off dozens of good conservative bloggers.
There may be more truth in your jest than you think.
I think you may be right, especially when it progresses from bog pimp ridicule to making fun of the grammar, spelling, etc. of other FReepers and reaming them out for posting a something that has already been posted.
The photo is still there.
Now they don’t even know who their FR friends are.
You reap what you sow. . . why would I give a donation to promote speech here that attacks the “wrong kind” of conservative? Not towing the FR line here means you’re not a REAL conservative. We have enough problems in this country without eating our own. So be it. FR was a good idea gone way wrong. Sad. But it’s validating to hear others who feel the same way.
Yes, that is effectively not voting. Sarah Palin is not running for President. She doesn't want your vote, casting a ballot for her is entirely useless, and she has already stated that she is ABO and will support the Republican nominee. Palin is almost certainly going to endorse and campaign for Willard. Palin will probably have a prominent slot at the convention in which she will mostly attack Obama but also champion Romney as our candidate. Will you still be writing her in once that reality sets in? Will that require us declare Sarah a RINO establishment sell-out? Come on, can we at least try to be serious and stop with the "I'm writing in Sarah Palin" nonsense.
