Let's put this to bed. We have bigger fish to fry.

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.

We’re all the better patriots for putting our energies into electing TEA Party patriots to the US Senate and House.

That's the way I feel as well. I was very active in supporting a Tea Party candidate in 2010. He lost, but managed to tie down a couple million in Dem dollars that might have tipped the balance in races elsewhere.

The GOP always has had a very tenuous relationship between conservatives and the country-club Republicans. We did not turn that into an open rift - they did in 2010 when they backstabbed Tea Party conservatives who beat their RINOs in the primary.

Until the GOP-E shows they are willing to do more with the conservative base than treat us as poor relations, I will keep supporting conservative candidates who I feel will in turn work to keep the liberal tendencies of both the Dems and the GOP in line.

You are going to post a crybaby picture to me?
These pictures are only going to make this website look offensive to advertisers if FR goes that route.
As an RN who deals with Downs Syndrome, and a sister of a person who is developmentally delayed, I find your post offensive.
If you cannot get that- then you have some serious issues.
Which is very transparent on this thread.

And then there’s that pesky little problem that you have with being unable to rebut the substance of my post rather than going off on those silly and pointless tangents.

A refresher.

Free Republic's Rino Free America Project - December 3, 2009

Recently Jim Robinson posted two threads declaring Free Republic’s determination to see Conservatives elected and ousting Rino's from government. Jim and a great many Freepers believe that we need to take back control. But the RNC is not hearing us. Activism is called for NOW. 2010 is nearing and we need Conservative candidates to run. The time is ripe and people are ready for another 1994 type election. But we need to make the RNC hear us loud and clear.

Congrats for proving the point of almost everyone on this thread. You signed up in 2008 and are calling for the zotting of members dating back to 1997? Who the hell are you?

How DARE you tarnish the reputation of people who did the work when you weren't here. During Monica Lewinsky, Bush/Gore, 9/11, WOT, Support our Troops, Gary Condit, Rathergate, Bush/Kerry???

Shame on you...

To those I pinged, FReeper JoeProPono and his insulting replies via pictures to FReepers here from Day 1 is why people are afraid to post or have left.

This ain't about Romney, never was, this was people like FReeper ProJoeBono registered in 2008 who decided him and a few others would take this site by storm by mocking people here who maybe going through hell in their normal lives.

I lost my mother in 2008 when I was 25 you think a day after her death I'd like to be mocked by FReeper JoeProBono, there are several members in my family dying of cancer, do you think I enjoy coming here to be mocked by FReeper JoeProBono who JOINED IN 2008 THE YEAR OF THE OBAMA!!!

Do what you want. But I've NEVER supported Romney, most who left or quit posting never supported Romney.

They just didn't want to come to a place they called home, where there were prayer concern threads, blow off steam threads, ect... to be mocked and humiliated by a gutter rat like FREEPER JOEPROBONO REGISTERED 2008

Jim, your resistance is falling apart due to desertions and summary executions. And you have nobody to blame but yourself.

Your stand is well-documented and I haven’t seen a single person here who disagrees with the core of it.

But this site has become a pale shadow of what it once was. Once conservatives of varying degrees were free to discuss openly and intelligently. Now anyone who diverges even slightly from the mob’s opinion is openly insulted, often by you personally, often in disgusting and degrading terms.

Why anyone of even moderate intelligence would want to be a part of this anymore is beyond me. I do not. Please disable my account.

Homosexualist - one who promotes homosexualism as a political cause. Look it up. You’ll find pictures of homosexualist Mitt Romney crossing the aisle to hold hands with homosexualist Ted Kennedy. It’s not complicated.

We really are at a crossroads in GOP politics. We didn't get here overnight.

For years, conservatives were told by the GOP that if you want to have conservative GOP candidates in the general elections, then you need to work for your guy to win in the primary. If that doesn't happen, you need to support the RINO in the general.

And conservatives largely did that for many a year.

Fast forward to 2010. Something the GOP-E never envisioned happened - the great unwashed actually DID get a lot of their conservative candidates elected in the primary. And defeated a lot of prime RINO in the process.

So did the GOP-E follow their own advice?

No. They went on TV and did everyting they could to backstab the Tea Party winners. And Lord knows what they did behind the scenes, I am sure it was not pretty.

Now we saw Mitt Romney utterly destroy his opposition with lowbrow, unpricipled ad attacks. Scorched earth is no way to win a primary if you want to win the general. But apparently the GOP-E would rather have their RINO even if it means they have effectively trashed their chances in November. Many days I think they are more scared of conservatives than they are of Democrats.

This is the landscape we see now on FR - the scorched earth has extended here, and that changes things. It's not pretty. I have no idea what will become of FR, conservativism or the GOP. But we didn't start this fire. We're just dealing with the aftermath. And there are no guides for such, we're just going to have to muddle through it the best we can. But IMO, tossing your principles aside is NOT the first step.

Well, Jim, my old friend, it’s time to part ways. You can go ahead and “zot” me as well. I’ve been thinking about this situation here, and it seems to me I’ve been sitting on the fence. You’re right. Rebellion IS afoot. I can no longer support any site or any person who is openly working to keep the illegal alien, communist dictator wannabe Obama in office.

My ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary War, and just about every war ever since, did not fight, and in some cases die, so that a dangerous fraud like Obama can take our country down. A conservative site that won’t support the Republican on the ballot—well, it’s something else, not conservative.

I think it’s time to thank you for all the many good discussions over the years, wish you the best, and say goodby.

However, to most of the mods, I can only say, glad to be on my way. I will not miss these, not one bit.

God bless and Keep you, dirtboy.

No matter which big-government, pro-abortion-gun-grabbing-liar wins in November, we need as many TEA Party patriots in the U.S. House and Senate to stop that president from imposing his liberal agenda on us.

The GOP-E with their fossil incumbents, gave our TEA Party patriots the shaft in 2010 when it came to leadership positions, so we must send an arsenal of re-enforcements.

“LOL...you opus on the open forum saying, “please, please pay attention to me” when you could have easily sent a FReepmail to JR and avoided any feedback. “

Gotta disagree here. Those of us that have been reading and posting to FR for many years have an emotional and intellectual attachment to the site. Making the decision to cut ties with something that has been so important for so long is difficult and painful. Expressing that in public on that site is natural and normal.

For every one who writes a serious opus, there are many others who have either left without an opus or are considering it. The opus serves to point out that it is happening.

If this site contributes to Obama being reelected, I'm not sure I can ever forgive it.

Likewise. The other recent nastiness was unpleasant but tolerable. However, if Romney hatred pushes this site to become a pro-Obama site by default, I just can’t stomach that. ..or maybe I’ll get “zotted” just for saying what I just said. Anything seems possible these days.

Dengar, I would give things time to settle out a bit, I think we all should. Nerves are always the rawest right after a hard-fought primary. Let's see what happens. I don't think you would get zotted for taking a position of party unity and making that case, I will continue to disagree for now, but we can do that as fair debate.
