Howdy everyone!!

Looks like a man who has no conservative accomplishments whatsoever (actually, no REPUBLICAN accomplishments whatsoever) is going to get the GOP nomination. A man whose record virtually matches Obama's in every respect, right down to his very own government mandated socialist compulsory health insurance program.

What were they thinking? It's going to be an interesting election season, but then we live in interesting times.

To the RINO GOP:

I'm not going to campaign for this phony empty suit. Not going to cheerlead for a man with an abortionist, homosexualist, statist record. Cannot possibly vote for him. But y'all gotta do what y'all gotta do. I'm not going to stand in the way of dumping the Marxist.

FR is going to live to fight another day!!

To our loyal conservative FReepers:

We are making slow but steady headway with our FReepathon. One percent per day keeps the 404 away!! Let's keep 'er going!!

Please keep those donations coming in folks. No matter who gets the nomination, or who gets elected, we conservatives are going to need FR more than ever to hold their feet to the fire!!

Free Republic is your conservative home on the Net. We are the resistance!!

Thank you all very much for your continuing support!!

Please click the link above to donate via secure server or mail checks to:

Free Republic, LLC - PO Box 9771 - Fresno, CA 93794

Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God!!

Vote wisely. Vote STRAIGHT conservative. Put in a big supply of STATIST-B-GONE and vote 'em OUT!!

Rebellion is ON!!

The bad thing is, a lot of my ideas (boyish humor) would cause JimRob to chase me out of here with a stick, LOL.

When the secretary would come out back in the shop and catch us all laughing, she would ask what we were laughing about and we would tell her *boyish humor* and to *git* back up front, LOL.

"I have one yardstick by which I test every major problem - and that yardstick is: Is it good for America?"
~Dwight D. Eisenhower

Didn't Ike give us Chief Justice Earl Warren, who conservatives desperately were hoping to impeach, but never could muster the votes to? And the IRS Act of 1954? Ike was your traditional, soft-spoken, never offend, genteel example of the moderate / Rockefeller wing of the Republican.

Just for once, I pray to God that he would allow our country to elect a genuine, bona fide, conservative, pro-American, president of the United States. A man or woman, who actually understands & practices conservative values & principles across the board. Unfortunately I don't think we will ever see or experience that type of genuine, conservative, pro-American president.

I've got to head out for a bit myself. Driving Miss Daisy to Target, Kroger, etc., so we'll be flitting around a little. See you later.

Hi, deoetdoctrinae! I use a laptop as well. It's okay once you get used to it.

TGIF, indeed. Hubby and I will be putting in some range time. He just bought an FN Five-seveN 1911. It's already MINE! LOL!

Here's a YouTube about it

It was a demoralized, ill-equipped army which stood on the shore of the Delaware River in December of 1776...

The year had not gone well for the army. Washington's men had suffered horrendous defeats in New York at the hands of British and Hessian soldiers. The losses of Forts Washington and Lee had levied a heavy toll to the Patriot cause as many troops were killed or taken prisoner, much needed supplies/munitions were abandoned in the evacuation of the forts, and the belief in the possible achievement of independence was dwindling at every turn. As much of the army was forced to retreat across New Jersey, the collective mood of Washington, Congress, and the army darkened. Enlistments were down, desertion was high, and monies from Congress were unavailable. Men on both sides of the conflict and of all stations and ranks began to question if the Revolution could be ending in the same year in which independence was declared.

Even their stoic commander despaired over "a noble cause lost," and wrote to his brother, "I think the game is pretty near up.

But Washington Did Not Surrender, He Became Bolder And Fought Back!
