Well it's been about 13 years forgot my initial sign in name, so pretty much from the beginning.
Never wanted to write a Free Republic Opus, love reading news stories here and commenting every day.
Would rather not go out in anger seems pointless.
Then today the owner of the site called me a RINO (I'm not), surrender monkey (not) and told me to write my opus and get out.
My sin was fighting with someone who suggested Obama losing in the latest poll is "bad news".
I could list all the insanity of what is going on here. I've tried to approach Jim Robinson in email to gently suggest the problems we are facing. It's clear from that he is not interested in discussing and resolving anything, which is a shame.
But what kind of man, American, conservative will I be if I worry more about losing my 12 year old screen name versus standing up to people who are espousing the advisability of reelecting Barack Hussein Obama, and yes if I fail to stand up to the owner of a site for calling me a liberal when I am a proud conservative?
What Jim Robinson is doing cannot work because first of all he is NOT attacking the posters who say it is best to reelect Obama. He's offended by anyone who says he is thereby supporting Obama. But he doesn't mind calling us names when we attack the pro Obamas.
OK folks, it's not going to work. You can't really oppose Obama's reelection if you may also oppose the republican's election.
Free Republic has become a house divided against itself and it cannot stand.
I'm a conservative I love my country, I have to wish away to the cornfield anyone who would assist in the reelection of Obama, from whatever misguided motivations.
I stand with Dick Cheney. The other day I had to fight with someone disparaging Cheney here. They were not criticized by the owner.
Jim Robinson owes me an apology. Not planning on getting one. The sad fact is I am not writing this because I'm offended. It's because I want to no longer assist here in the destruction of my country by those who will, to varying degrees, assist in Obama's reelection.
Six or seven liberals on the Supreme Court? Maybe atomic destruction down the pike after our disarmament. Israel destroyed. 2nd Amendment neutered. Obamacare used to deny people medical care based on age and political beliefs. Racial strife. A welfare socialist state. US attorneys going after republicans.
My wife is a cancer survivor who reasonably fears that in the future they will deny her care because she is a registered republican. And she's no RINO, she hates Obama and she won't read Free Republic stories anymore because of what is going on here.
We have a real country and real lives out here that go beyond Jim Robinson's ill advised name calling against sincere conservatives who dare to disagree with him.
So F anyone who calls me a RINO for standing with Dick Cheney and against Barack Obama. I hate RINO's and I despise misguided so called conservatives who do anything to reelect Obama.
13 years, but it's nothing when put to the wall on my beliefs against the left wing democrat party. I have too many mirrors to look in. The people here who are every day posting that it will be best to reelect Obama, should be thrown off. Instead, well...
Don’t ask for a refund if you’ve already eaten the meal.
That's because McCain didn't run against Clinton.
No it wasn't.
Same holds true today.
No it doesn't.
Told not to.
Yes on both counts. For those who were/are paying attention.
Is it me or do conservative types rarely misbehave in public places? Like getting tossed from private businesses/places... I’m sure it happens, but mostly it’s folks batting for the other team that think their misbehavior should be rewarded and that they have ‘rights’ to do things and behave in ways (dictating policy and such) they don’t really have.
And you swallowed it. Hook, line, and sinker.
Do whatever your heart desires.
I see why its “I have,” meaning in the past. Your business model is dubious.
We’ve never seen a flame like that. Except about 50,000 times! LOL
From a Newt campaign worker to you, thanks for not abandoning the Republican party ergo the country.
We can’t all have it the way we want, but the men accept it and work for a better resolution. The babies pout and take their toys and go home.
Which one are the folks here going to be?
No but I get the distinct impression you also were not standing there demanding compensation for your indiscretions and a “We participated” ribbon either ;)
I've never had three replies, you and two others, within a minute of Posting a comment. It just proves my point.
It seems there is no compromise between the two factions and I have yet to see one FReeper changing their position after being confronted with the opposing view. A whole lot of keystrokes without a whole lot of progress.
That's where we are and these endless battles won't change a darn thing in the long run, unless a Free Republic purge is on the horizon. The rubber will hit the road after “someone” becomes the GOP Nominee.
Anyway, that's how I see it. Nothing more to say.
And if the best the GOP can do is Romney, they can't count on me.
And all of your calling us babies for not supporting the GOP regardless, isn't going to work.
I WILL NEVER VOTE FOR ROMNEY. EVER!
I hope I've made myself clear.
And I will, and am, actively campaigning against him, including phone calls and personal visits.
I’m not afraid to post my point of view. If it gets me bumped, so be it. Better that than to live in fear of not falling perfectly in line so the webmaster might grant me another day!
He definitely got it right.
Make it bigger. Jim might doubt you.
Prove you’re a good conservative!
