Everyone please send whatever you are able to, whether it is $10, $100 or $1,000+. The DUmmies, Morons, Kos Kiddies and that crew are laughing up their sleeves. Jim may have to make this site members only or allow ads. Better for us to just help with what we can. Maybe you can donate as a memorial for a lost loved one, a servicemember who never made it home or was disabled defending our country. Perhaps you'd like to give to keep free discussion alive and to show them that we're not knuckling under. I'm sure a well thought out or prayerful meditation will lead you to see the need and how you can help. If every registered FReeper and our lurkers would each just help out with a fin or a sawbuck, or better yet a Ben Franklin, we could put this to bed and get on with the conservative cause.
Jim Robinson has every right to state that his activist, conservative site will not support a man that stands for the polar opposite.
It’s juvenile and simply meant to humiliate the zotted more. Unfortunately, many of them were not trolls.
Which coast are you on ducky?
I agree. the celebrations were sick ... reminded me of tribal dances.
Again, I have no way of knowing why posters are zotted. I don’t ask.
Anyone who liked someone other than Palin or Newt was set up to be zotted. They even keep lists.
That is kind of sick.
Some folks have become exactly what they hate the most. It has been going on a long time. Gone are the days you could find common ground and chat with a person you may disagree with finding out there was a lot they had to offer and had more in common with you than you knew.
I used to have some of those times and remember them with fondness.
Everyone supported TARP. And he backed state health care, which is how the Constitution allows it. Using the 10th Ammendment isnt bypassing the Constitution. I still dont like it, and wouldnt want it here in texas, but to pretend that he abused the Constitution shows a real lack knowledge of what the Constitution says.
But as to Socialism, that is the government controlling the production in the economy. Basically, government run corporations. Regulations are anti-free market, but not necessarily socialist. Just screaming socialist at everything is a pretty weak argument.
Thank you for your service.
I wouldnt expect you to.
Joe, I have no personal knowledge of why posters are banned. I know no more than you do.
So the answer is yes. Thought so
Yup. In fact, I think only a very, very small percentage were.
And that's why I find Free Republic so compelling and worthy of a donation. The boss has set clear and unambiguous standards that are core principles of Christian Constitutional Conservatism. I'm pleased to support America's premiere source for unbiased news and informed opinion.
Plus there are opportunities to engage in conversation with some of the kindest (and may I add, smartest) people on the planet. The ping lists are great too, especially for those of us who like cats! :-)
My vote is mine and is not controlled by you.
It’s worse than that. Some who were zotted during the Perry-supporter purges were fairly big donors. Texans in particular, and southerners in general were insulted and often zotted ultimately—taking their donations elsewhere. One woman on here used say, with great glee, that Texans and southerners were all in-bred, drug their knuckles, and worse. Complaints were ignored. This additional fund-raising thread might have been totally unnecessary if this hadn’t happened.
Somebody could use them to write a paper on the subject of website suicide.
Maybe not this time but you know as well as I and everyone else on this forum that you are a primary member of a ping list that contributes very little in terms of actual political discourse and seems to exist only to police the site and badger other Freepers who don't "toe the line". This ping list has succeeded in getting many decent conservative contributing Freepers banned and driven many more from the site altogether.
DJ, I'm going to tell you something and it might be painful but sometimes the truth hurts. Wanna know something? When you and your ping list succeed in getting me zotted from FR, I'll be able to go to any other conservative site on the internet, register under my current post name and be welcomed with open arms. You and your friends cannot. You may be feared here but on conservative forums outside of FR, you are loathed and mocked.
You can change if you want to, you know this, right?
Yep and it pains me to agree with you for the 2nd time.
