You're wasting your time talking sense to these people.

Far too many freepers don't even tak about freedom anymore, they're yearning for some sort of government control. The idea of liberty scares most freepers just as bad as it scares liberals. Then there's the percentage that will actually mock attempts to find or regain freedom.

Can you believe that? Here on FR there are posters who mock those seeking greater liberty. They are too stupid to be ashamed of themselves.

Well, some of the FSP advocates--on and off Free Republic--haven't helped any.

Bottom line: the FSP concept has some issues that have not been addressed, that can adversely impact the chances of success.

The reaction of longtime residents to a bunch of outsiders showing up and throwing their weight around in the political arena is one area that hasn't been examined at all. If it isn't handled with a lot of skill, the newcomers may discover that the pre-existing residents will oppose them out of sheer spite.

I don't understand why there isn't more interest in this. I mean hundreds of Californians are packing up and leaving the state because of a runaway government. Why move twice?

Too many people won't even talk about restoring the Constitution. "It's too late for that," they whine... "We have to continue as we are and hope that no one hurts us too badly."

They WANT the smothering blanket of big government as cover for THEIR agenda. But they want to blame the Dems for doing it, even though THEIR guys never UNDO anything. Sad and sick!

I used to think I had a Libertarian cat; he always wanted out. The the first time it rained, I realized I had a Republican cat: He only wanted his freedom when the weather was nice. As soon as conditions got a little rough, he came to me for government Friskies and a cozy place to sleep.
