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...
Sure, by my guest. I’ve done a bunch of them over the last few months. Bikkuri has them archived ;)
There’s a couple typos but I was typing fast.
I'm out for the night (early morning)
Thanks for the info. It seems there is quite a bit more of that around here than I’ve noticed.
Yeah, we all saw how the GOP-E fell in behind the Tea Party candidates who primaried RINOs in 2010.
Seems to me the problem is with the GOP-E for being more willing to lose with a RINO than win with a conservative.
I have the book of Lazamataz in the making, over the years.
I answered a question in my Bible study booklet this week about who my hero was, and why I sought to emulate that person.
Without hesitation I wrote your name in the blank, and I wrote that it was your courage that made me want so much to be like you. Thank you for not giving up. I am praying for you!
Man, would I ever be conflicted then!
That is cool. I’ve never seen anything like that before. How did you do it? Why did you do it?
And how long did it take you to do it?
No, not true at all. Sometimes battles must be fought on multiple fronts, and sometimes one must take one's licks and regroup.
I'm still participating in my local Republic Party Executive Committee and working hard to get good people put into office. I'm also participating in Tea Party events.
However, the American people seem bent on self-destructing, and I'm not going to be in the middle of that explosion unless absolutely necessary. Besides, after the process is complete it will be like throwing up ... everything will suddenly feel better ... but only if you've survived the process.
You assume much about Romney that his public record does not support. I don't care what he says on the campaign trail. The man has a RECORD, and that record is decidedly LIBERAL.
You will not convince me to give my solemn vote to any LIBERAL, including Willard Romney. If you can't see that now is the time to fight back, then I don't know how to help you. A vote for Romney, is a vote to give up all pretense of being conservatives, or American patriots.
Do you, or do you not see that voting for Romney is acquiescing to the very evil that you fear? Romney and Obama both work for the same masters. Choosing between them is no choice at all.
A true patriot sees this clearly, and will respond accordingly by resisting evil in any and every way they can - not by selling out their principles out of fear.
That was very interesting. I feel that having a low reply-per-post ratio is a negative thing, and now I’m going to have to work on that statistic in the future.
Prepare for what? A trip to the re-education gulag?
If we're going to go to hell anyway, it's going to happen without my express consent. I see no upside in selling my soul to the devil, or throwing away my personal honor and integrity for any reason.
I say the better option is to reject the fraud, Romney, and tell the left to Bring It. It's about time we had this fight once and for all.
......”Romney and Obama both work for the same masters. Choosing between them is no choice at all.

Only trouble is they seem to be mobilized for action and we still think we can vote them out.
Oh, I agree wholeheartedly that Obama's a full-strength liberal, i.e., a Marxist. At the same time, I don't agree that Mitt is any better, just because he's a paler shade of the same thing.
I'm being given the choice between a left-liberal, and a left-liberal. I simply won't choose either.
Just some added comments.....
Romney’s track record has two disguishable and major earmarks:
1) he is an accomplished liar, and... 2) he campaigns Right and governs Left.
According to his own campaign staff, any promises will be etch-a-sketched into nothingness once he secures the nomination.
Both Romney and Obama are “Progressives” which is just yet another political camouflage term for Statist / Leftist / Socialist.
None should sign their name on either...they are one and the same.
