Way too many vanity threads lately. And way too much trash being posted. Please try to stay on topic (politics). Also, please do a search on a significant word from the title of your article before posting. This will reduce the number of duplicates. And, along these same lines, please use the original titles on your article posts. Do NOT edit the titles. Do NOT use "My Title" titles. This will also help to reduce the number of duplicates.
And, whatever else you do, please DO NOT post from DEMOCRATS UNDERGROUND (or any other such trashy un-American socialist hangout). Free Republic was intended to be a socialist free zone. We've gone to a heck of a lot of trouble to make it that way. Why in the world would you think we would be interested in having their trash posted here?
And QUIT trashing each other. You know who you are. Knock it off! Way too many flamewars and feuds going on. And, while I'm thinking about it, QUIT trashing our conservative candidates. If you want to criticize someone's position on some policy, have at it. But do not trash or smear the man. That would include Browne, Buchanan, Bush, Keyes, et al, or whomever else may be your favorite trashee (examples listed in alphabetical sequence). The idea is to get more conservatives elected, not to trash the ones you don't like. If you want to trash someone, make it a Democrat. Thank you.
And QUIT dredging up old communist propaganda to smear our conservatives. Sheesh! Whatever else you may think about our guys, they did not hijack airliners full of people and crash them into buildings. No, my friends, not even the dreaded CIA. Anyone who would believe (or even suspect) that crap is no FReeper. I've been pulling this crap whenever I see it and several people have been banned for continuing to post it. I do not want it on Free Republic. Any current FR poster who believes this leftist propaganda, please logoff immediately, send me your resignation via email, and I will delete your account.
There is a lot of noise in the circuit here tonight for sure.
It gets tiresome trying to find substantial threads.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU !
I've just started, would you like me to go on.
We are constantly bombarded with every liberal fanatic assault on our lives and our war efforts - even by Fox.
I feel this is the new way our own American enemies try to tear down this country and halt our fight against terrorism. What can they do and still remain under cover as good American citizens? Maybe they could build sympathy for the prisoners and our own American traitor. Maybe they can weaken support for America and this war. There are Al Quada members in the U.S. and I often wonder if some are working undercover as reporters and members of the media.
Yea! it's a free country and all, but this is a political consevative forum that supports its conservative candidates. Or do we really?
I agree with you. That sort of stuff is grating.
I have been called "a country-club Republican" when I have supported Bush.
I however, disagree with his immigration policy. Then I get called all sorts of other stuff.
Can't say it bothers me. Political websites and opinions bring out pretty heated stuff.
The only thing I think should be absolute is to support our Armed Forces and President, when we are at war. Other then that, all opinions from a conservative viewpoint should be welcomed at this forum, as long as they are proferred in good faith.
I for one voice my opinion against no vanities. Yeah they might get carried away a bit but have you ever seen the size of those threads? Like 400 posts! People obviously like discussing and relating things in those very threads.As useless as some might see a thread another might enjoy the hell out of.
As far as smearing goes on the conservatives? Jim do you think we should stop calling people what they really are?RINO's are out there and it is a false example of what TRUE Conservativism really is. People like Jeffords got away with it and this forum is exactly what we need to bring to light about those RINO's.
Hey, It is your show. Run it how you want to. I agree on the Democratic Underground stuff. That crap should never be linked here. We know the smack that they are talking about under there. Also the commie stuff I agree with as well. But the other 2 I disagree with.
I still will send people here on a daily basis to sign up or lurk or whatever and pound the pavement for this site. But let's not get into mass censorship here. I am a Republican and a Conservative as well. I want more of us in government. But we need to show and talk how we do already to let everyone who comes in here know that there are people like them out there as well.
Thanks and God Bless,
This is now, NOT the forum it used to be. The irrelivant and childish vanities now outnumber the hard news post. The tinfoil hat crowd has posted EVERY vile, spurious, disgusting, hairbrained thing , that they could lay their hands on, to besmirch President Bush. This is NOT a chat room, a lonely hearts club, a church group, a religious waefare forum, a movie review page, advice for teens on dating , a place on which to post soft porn pictures, make yourself feel better , by shreding others , nor any of 100 other things that have overtaken this site. THIS IS A CONSERVATIVE POLITICAL FORUM ! At least it used to be. Sadly, it has NOT been one, for well over a year.
Maybe now, it will be again.
This is serious and I don't think it's about spinning X42's lack of leadership-he blew it, we all know it, and nothing can change that. He didn't leave our country better off than when he entered the office. I'd go further to say that it's time for a few of the honorable senators to be removed also.
Amen to that JimRob!... and thanks.
