Received yet another complaint from a prior donor:
"The thread about who is a troll tells lots. FR is not welcoming to newbies. But the younger generation of potential conservatives has to be heard. Conservatism is changing, and we need openness, even when it challenges.
My son as well as me was a previous supporter of FR, but he quit; these guys are extremists, and they can not win elections via labeling. In 10 years the whole debate about stem cells will be as ridiculous as the debate about baby carriages.
In 10 years most of us 1999 Freepers will be dead. If I posted this, I would be banned as a troll. So I am inactive and leave FR with regretss for what FR has become.
I move my support to Darwin Central and Liberty Post."
Well, I just don't know what to tell you. FR will remain a pro Life and Liberty conservative site. It's true that government schools have brainwashed the last couple of generations of our youth into believing that abortion, homosexual marriage, universal health care, global warming, open borders, big government, big spending, high taxes, etc, are perfectly normal and healthy for our citizens and our "democratic" society, but I just cannot bring myself to go along with all that liberal mumbo jumbo.
One more time: FR is pro-Life, pro-Liberty, pro-constitution, pro-traditional values, pro-small government, pro-defense and pro-America.
We oppose RINOism, liberalism, feminism, homosexualism, socialism, Marxism, globalism, fascism, communism, pacifism, government enforced atheism, anarchism or any other form of tyranny.
We fight for LIFE and Liberty and our religious freedoms as well as all of our other God-given unalienable rights. What God has given, no man, no government can rightfully take away. Our individual rights are not negotiable! Thank you very much!
Sorry, but I'm simply not interested in running a website dedicated to electing RINOs or turning the GOP into democrat-lite. If that means our fundraisers take longer or our donations dry up, then we'll find some other way to fund our operations. But we traditional conservatives (extremists to you) will continue fighting the good fight!
I will agree with you on one thing though. Those who feel FR should be more tolerable to the liberal point of view or that conservatism is changing and we should adapt to be electable are probably on the wrong website. Conservatism does not change, weak-kneed RINOS do.
I will not compromise my values for the sake of expedience nor to win elections. It's a sad day in America when people will compromise what they believe in just so they can say they won an election. Either we believe in what is good and right and moral, or we lower our standards to what we're told is "good for us" when it is not. Becoming the enemy is not an option, especially when that enemy lives among us as alleged fellow Americans.
Glad to be a part of this gang.
Potential Colin Powells eh?
We invest in them for 25 years and they stab us in the back eh?
Let’s just stay an anchor for conservatism. Thanks
NUKE the RINOs !!!
The truth doesn’t change. “Conservatives” who want to kill babies and harvest their parts aren’t “hip” or “forward-thinking.” They are just stupid—and evil. I have six kids who would rip this little pecker’s arguments into pieces. The younger generation of conservatives is getting more addicted to the truth, not less.
Thank you, SoldierDad!! Compromise has only brought us grief.
Thank you, Diver Dave!!
Thank you, mylife!!
You got that right!!
I am with you on RINOS, all of them.
Want to meet up at the John and Ken rally in Corona this Saturday?
They may call me a bigot, but I believe that character, values, and morals are important. I’m sick of the grief brought on by amoral living.
Well said, Jim. A Conservative man don’t need him around anyhow.
And as far as...”FR is not welcoming newbies”?
Well, I took the “JUMP RIGHT IN” advice on 2, Nov., 2008 and haven't looked back. If you don't think that you're welcome...”The guilty flee when no one pursues". If this site means anything to you, put your money where your mouth is. Markos33, PRO-AMERICAN
Thank you, freeplancer!!
Sounds great, but don’t think I can make it.
OFF with their heads!!
Thank you, Robwin!!
