The ten best reasons NOT to support FR
Click here to pledge your support! ^ | May 7, 2011 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 05/07/2011 1:53:43 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

1) I support a woman's "right to choose," therefore I cannot support FR.

2) I support "gay rights," therefore I cannot support FR.

3) I support "illegal immigration rights," therefore I cannot support FR.

4) I think guns are dangerous and so support "reasonable" gun control, therefore I cannot support FR.

5) I support government provided health care, therefore I cannot support FR.

6) I think we should all pay our "fair share" and so support higher taxes for the wealthy, therefore I cannot support FR.

7) I think many times government can provide the best solution, therefore I cannot support FR.

8) I think the constitution is fine, but when more government control is needed it just gets in the way, therefore I cannot support FR.

9) I think all this talk about God-given rights is fundamentalist extremism, therefore I cannot support FR.

10) I support MY free speech rights and FR won't allow me to post my support for any of the above, therefore I cannot support FR.

Conservatives need to ‘tone down’ the rhetoric if we are going to win over moderates and independents. Therefore I cannot support FR.

11. I believe the great economy we had during the Clinton years was result of his policies, and the tech boom and Y2K and the jobs created by them would not have happened without him, therefore I cannot support FR.

12. I believe that OBL only started attacking us after Bush became President, therefore I cannot support FR.

13. Even though OBL only started attacking us after Bush became President, I believe that Clinton did his best to capture him, therefore I cannot support FR.

14. I believe that all of the information needed to capture OBL was accumulated on Obama's watch, therefore I cannot support FR.

15. I need more Koolaid, therefore I cannot support FR.

“Conservatives need to ‘tone down’ the rhetoric if we are going to win over moderates and independents. Therefore I cannot support FR.”

And because of this the “donating” FReepers have left.

I’m sorry, so sorry, but I had to say it.

I think our children should have “fisting” and marxist-Islamic political brain washing as part of school curriculum!

I think Islam and Sharia is a far better system of religion and government than our Christianity and Constitution!

I think the Obama czars should be in charge of very aspect of our lives and obeyed blindly.

I think Obama should by-pass Congress and our Constitution to pass Bills through Congress and Senate!

I better stop before I give everyone enough reasons to not support FR sarc/ (smile)

How could I support FR?

However, in my defense, there are quite a few of these people here on FR.

Sometimes I feel like I’m in the CIA and have to decipher everything stated.

11. My husband lost his job, so I can’t contribute more than my monthly amount, whatever that was. But if the FReepathon is still going on when we get a paycheck (May 13) I’ll send a donation to thank everyone for their prayers, support, and advice.

Thank YOU for giving me someone to tell (other than my mother ;-) when Der Prinz walked in the door at noon on a Thursday saying his job had vanished after 7-1/2 years. We got everything from “Do you need food?” to “Call this IT headhunter!” along with jokes and cat pictures.

FReepers also taught me to grow cilantro, last summer, and now I have about 40 square feet of cilantro forest ... and spreading!

*snicker*

I saw that headline and without checking the author or anything else was ready to come in ‘guns blazing’. Dang 2nd time this week I’ve been ready to do battle over a thread with a double meaning.

Anyway, touche’ Jim, those people should not even be here. Amazingly, they are and are stealthy and may ‘give’ to FR.

Personally, I would add another: If you are going to denigrate Sarah Palin based on lies and innuendos, ummmm you probably shouldn’t be here. NOT to say FR is ‘endorsing Sarah Palin’, (although I did see somewhere that this is “Palin Country” AND I also saw THE kiss (finally), in no way would that indicate a full ‘endorsement’.)

Anyway, thanks again for the clarity.

PS I think a “Why I joined and believe in Free Republic” would make an extremely interesting thread. :)

11. I tried to support FR, got all the way to the signout, and FR asked me for my telephone number.

???Why do you need my telephone number???

I backed out and declined to support FR for this round of quarterly giving.

I believe that it’s your credit card company that requires your phone number, but I may be wrong. However, I’ve given my phone number numerous times and unfortunately, Jim has never called me. Go figure. :)
