Skip to comments.Will FR embrace socialism to make way for Rudy Giuliani as a Republican presidential candidate?

We've got some real challenges facing us. FR was established to fight against government corruption, overstepping, and abuse and to fight for a return to the limited constitutional government as envisioned and set forth by our founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and other founding documents.
One of the biggest cases of government corruption, overstepping and abuse that I know of is its disgraceful headlong slide into a socialist hell. Our founders never intended for abortion to be the law of the land. And they never intended the Supreme Court to be a legislative body. They never intended God or religion to be written out of public life. They never intended government to be used to deny God's existence or for government to be used to force sexual perversions onto our society or into our children's education curriculum. They never intend for government to disarm the people. They never intended for government to set up sanctuary cities for illegals. They never intended government to rule over the people and or to take their earnings or private property or to deprive them of their constitutional rights to free speech, free religion, private property, due process, etc. They never intended government to seize the private property of private citizens through draconian asset forfeiture laws or laws allowing government to take private property from lawful owners to give to developers. Or to seize wealth and redistribute it to others. Or to provide government forced health insurance or government forced retirement systems.
All of the above are examples of ever expanding socialism and tyranny brought to us by liberals/liberalism.
FR fights against the liberals/Democrats in all of these areas and always will. Now if liberalism infiltrates into the Republican party and Republicans start promoting all this socialist garbage, do you think that I or FR will suddenly stop fighting against it? Do you think I'm going to bow down and accept abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, global warming, illegal alien lawbreakers, gun control, asset forfeiture, socialism, tyranny, totalitarianism, etc, etc, etc, just so some fancy New York liberal lawyer can become president from the Republican party?
Do you really expect me to do that?

I tried hijacking the thread earlier with the cookie thing, but nobody bit. ;)
Nope. Seems to still be up & running.
It was me, it was me that vouched!
Oh great! I started singing along, and now the neighbor’s cats are screeching. Thanks a lot!
Now THAT is REALLLLLLY something!!!!
Put a tribute up on your homepage...for the world to see!
I'm 'Legendary'!? !?
That’s funny. The enthusiasm is contagious!

Frankly, I never expected that you would collect money for three weeks and then, within a couple of hours, conduct a Soviet-style purge of Freepers. The timing of this is very suspicious and suggests a premeditated strategery.
Had I known that such a purge would be conducted — particularly a purge characterized by viciousness, cruelty and a pack of hyenas tearing into long-time Freepers, I would never had renewed my monthly donation. The most offensive part of this horrible thread has been the savage behavior towards many female Freepers by some of the male Brownshirts. Please cancel my monthly donation effective immediately. I cannot in good conscience support a site that tolerates abusive behavior towards women.
All you had to do was ask all Rudy supporters to leave, Jim. You didn’t need to drag this formerly great forum and your own reputation through the mud. I for one would have left with no hard feelings.
I’m not changing this tagline and I hope that one day in the future this will once again be a “family conservative “ friendly site. If not, it’s been a wonderful five years Freeping and two additional years lurking before that. I have no illusions that control of this forum rests with anyone but you. I’ll respect whatever decision you make regarding termination of any Freeper’s account.
Thank you for your work in founding this site. You provided a wonderful home for all of us locked out of the political discourse of this nation because we did not go along with the singleminded view of the MSM. You are so much better than this thread, Jim. It is very sad to see what anger and frustration has done to this forum.
To all of those who invoke the name of Ronald Reagan on this thread, all I can say is that the comments on this thread — on all sides — would sicken him. Ronald Reagan was LOVED by this country — not for his conservatism or any other political quality, but because he was above all else a kind and gentle soul who never hated anybody — even his political enemies. Far be it from me to claim that I will ever live up to his example of grace, kindness, compassion, and humility — but I hope that readers of this will think carefully about the Greatness of Reagan and how it was his very human soul that made him so successful as an actor, a politician, a President, a husband, a man, and an American. He was the last person who would ever claim perfection — he was too reverent and God-fearing a man to believe that.
I had to get my eyes dilated at the eye doctor’s and my computer screen is very, very bright
nice meeting you, too. your name makes it hard to come up with a shorter version. ::grin:: have a blessed week!
Light reading for a late night, or two, or three, or .....
I’m game. And there’s no talking politics rule too isn’t there?
Maybe. But I think it’s more like I hurt their little ears. I’m no Kate Smith.
