Why are you even a FReeper? If you don’t like what we stand for, bail the hell out now while you still have a choice to do so on your own.
IF Cruz runs and IF he’s the strongest conservative running (which no doubt he will be, look up his record) he will have my support 100%!! And I’m not going to allow the crap that happened during the last two presidential cycles to happen again. RINO supporters can go straight to hell as far as I’m concerned along with any “conservative” who supports amnesty.
This is rebellion (a voter rebellion)!! Look up the Declaration. See if you can figure out what is says about consent of the governed and what that means. See if you can find the Founders’ remedy for despotic government.
Live free or die!!
We have not yet begun to fight!!
“Why are you even a FReeper?”
I’m a Freeper because I am a conservative and I believe that FR stands up for principled conservativism.
I disagree with you here, JR. I think you’re making a mistake. I understand your desire for Ted as President. All too well. I think he’s a fantastic man, but I think that the principle is larger than any one man.
I remember some of what Washington himself said about the office - where some were saying that Washington should serve as long as he was alive. Then Washington himself stepped in and said - “the office is greater than any one man”. We must not and can not afford to set aside the principles of the constitution even for one man, no matter how great the man might be.
“If you dont like what we stand for”
What happens when those principles change? Am I supposed to bail or fight for the same principles that FR has always stood behind? What would you do if you sincerely believed that FR was leaving behind what they stood for? Would you stand and fight for these principles, or would you go?
“IF Cruz runs and IF hes the strongest conservative running (which no doubt he will be, look up his record) he will have my support 100%!!”
My disagreement has nothing to do with the man or his policies. He’s my Senator. I think he’s a fantastic senator. It has everything to do with the office of the presidency and the principles behind it. I believe Americans should be represented by someone who is born in America.
“And Im not going to allow the crap that happened during the last two presidential cycles to happen again. RINO supporters can go straight to hell as far as Im concerned along with any conservative who supports amnesty.”
Would you label someone who agreed with the principle that the office of the presidency ought to be reserved for someone born in America a RINO?
“See if you can find the Founders remedy for despotic government.”
I do. One of the checks is requiring the president to be born here. Not elsewhere. There are good reasons for this.
