Secession this time would be peaceful. These lazy assed socialist will not fight to keep fly over country bound to the DC plutocracy. These are not your GGGF Yankees.

Abortion and homosexual sex are only successful cultural initiatives when promoted and subsidized by government.

The culture did not change -it was changed and the change is temporary -the culture is being held hostage by a tyrannical leftist government.

Take away the government promotion and subsidy and the self destructive culture of perversion and death will collapse just as surely as the Berlin wall did.

That is why the fiscal cliff worries the perverts more than anyone else!!!!

Bring it on leftists -either we win and send you back to the cesspool or you win and go bankrupt funding failure -either way, WE WIN THE CULTURE WAR!!!!!!

Survival of the fittest!!!!

They wouldn’t need to. There are enough Southerners who’d fight against secession — or at least vote against it.

After more than 100 years, the direction of the "left" is coming to fruition. We have reaped what we have sown.

Sad but true.

Finally! Where have you guys been? It has been really strange to read the posts of FR and see only cast down eyes, heads, and folded hands.

Glad to see you, folks. We fight on.

“If Obama crashes America, as it looks like he has been instructed to do, the Unintended Consequence will be a return to God and morality.”

Yep. As soon as the economy takes another serious downturn and the bond market stops Helicopter Ben’s free money program, the spending party will be over. The spending levels are unsustainable and always have been, it’s just been a matter of time before it collapsed. Of course, Obama is hastening the collapse.

Eventually the culture will return to some normalcy, once welfare spending is history and people have to build families once again.

The transition will be painful. Hopefully there are enough people who remember what America used to be about so that we can resurrect that ideal once again.

Years ago I studied societal collapse under a famous anthropologist. His field work was in Africa. As a young American, I had the attitude that it was something that happened to other people. Now years later, the country I love has become a demonstration of what I learned so long ago.

Bottom line is that women pass culture to children. Strong cultures have mothers in the home doing exactly that while fathers by provisioning the mothers and children and leading the family made it possible.

Conservatives have bought the lie of needing two incomes. They bought the lie of “quality time” in raising children. Once that happened it was over. The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world. The hand that America turned over it's destiny to was the schools, Hollywood and minimum wage “caregivers”.

Personally I feel a majority of Americans believe
as we do but they will not support a party of
wishy-washy, middle of the road moderates who are
afraid to articulate a position because someone
might not agree with it, thus leaving them dangling
all alone.

We continue on.

You sound alot like me. Married to the same man 38 years, three children all good jobs, married and happy. I too deal with many younger people, people my children's age mid 20's oldest 31, as we have rentals. After years of cleaning up the messes in their lives and my rentals I have almost given up in trying to right the wrong's of bad parenting. The worse the tenant the worst their home life, it is so sad.

Rick Santorum was right, the family is the starting point, but see that is what Marx wanted to destroy, he knew that was the key in moving people away from God and into the arms of communism. Christianity is the only answer, we are trying to do our part in moving the truth of God's word, our website is my tagline.

This article is nonsensical and cowardly. The GOP made a conscious decision to embrace big government - not because of Snoop Dog videos or Honey Boo Boo. Proof below:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/975049/posts

“Over the course of an hour-long meeting with Ed Gillespie, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, we took great care to give him every opportunity to explain himself fully so that nothing could be misunderstood. The result was a surprisingly frank admission that the Republican Party defines “fiscal responsibility” as increasing the federal budget at “a slower rate of growth” than the Democrats (his words).

We asked him three times to explain why President Bush and the Republican Congress have increased discretionary non-defense spending at such an alarming rate, and why the party has embraced the expansion of the federal government’s roles in education, agriculture and Great Society-era entitlement programs.

“Those questions have been decided,” was his response. The public wants an expanded federal role in those areas, and the Republican Party at the highest levels has decided to give the public what it wants.”

I remain the same as 2 years ago, 4 years ago and 20 years ago. I am the same and will not change. America has changed on me...I am not stupid and can see the younger generations are more gay friendly, more brainwashed multiKultural and more liberal. Plus the immigration invasion only gives us more Democrat voters. Asians vote for 0 by 73%

I could care less and remain the same

So, so many things wrong with what you said ... Where to begin?

First of all, assuming he isn't over 150 years old, I'd say he has spent his entire life in a country he hates. But with air fares so low, I have to wonder why he hasn't gone somewhere more to his liking. Sort of like the Bill Ayres, Jane Fonda's and Michael Moore's of the world. If you hate the place so much, "why the f*** are you still here?"

Maybe because the liv'in is easy.

So what you are saying is that you give up? I am 58 and solid Mississippi REDNECK American. I can guarantee you that when you get away from the west coast and northeast... the younger generation is not all fag loving, welfare state embracing, mind numbed Zombies. Just look at who is still fighting islam... look who is still volunteering... even under an islamic fagot, marxist CiC. There is always hope... study George Washington and you will see that we face NOTHING like he and his generation faced. I will answer the call of Lady Liberty. You give up and stay out of the way if that is your choice. If I misunderstood... I apologize.

I intend to do it every day for the rest of my life. I am organizing my fiends here to do the same. It is all because of you. Too many people say that they can’t make a difference. You just did Jane. I am pinging onyx to this thread. I would bet she thinks daily silent prayer that is organized is a great idea too... and she can certainly reach many people.

Don’t ever give up. Conservatives still outnumber liberals. If the GOP hadn’t betrayed us, the country wouldn’t be like this. Take the party back, then the country.

Thank you very much for this special ping, dearest LLS and Jane Long.
It has lifted my spirits just when most needed.
I will faithfully join the silent prayer at 8:00PM nightly.

"I read on another thread, yesterday, about a call for the nation to pray each evening (for at least one minute) at 9 p.m E/8:00 p.m. C. I wish I'd saved the thread link.

It also mentioned that Churchill had called for a similar prayer time for Britain during WWII.

This is one thing I can and will do."

Sounds like a great idea to me.

“...It may be that if things get bad enough, America will finally start looking inward.”

I think this is key. The Left has that tendency to overeach. They’re a zealous lot, and quite prone to mistakes, usually of the commonsensical sort that tend to pee off the constituency to the point they finally get off their tail bones, and react.

I believe in the Constitution, but I also believe efforts to fortify our Constitution against the ravages of anti constitutionalists should be made to ensure longevity of the freedoms that constitution allows.

BLOAT FOR AMERICA.
