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.

Please calm down. Joe Pro Bono is a very nice man.

Didn't realize humiliating FReepers who've been here since 1997 - 2008 is something that is nice.

Maybe the person he is mocking is dying or just lost a loved one?

But he is a nice guy. And btw Any but Obama doesn't mean they are campaigning for Romney they can be writing in the Wizard of Oz. I personally know one FReeper driven off the site who is writing in third party for POTUS. To make this about Romney is insulting to me, because I was threatened with banishment when I was posting my outrage about Romney winning in the March 20th Primary. Now I am suddenly a Romney supporter when my posts of late have had to do with the thugs who get their jollies mocking and humiliating people.

They are the Howard Stern's of Free Republic. They deleted the post but one image was of a child with down syndrome.

Hey folks at the top is that really what we have devolved to? Making fun of retarded children?

Yes, it does.The features of Downs are easily identified. It is identified visually right after birth.
Look it up if you do not believe us.
I find it interesting that people get zotted for saying ABO, but nothing happens to people who post hateful pictures.

Well, if there is no pro-life conservative at the top of the ticket, then serious pro-life conservatives will probably have to write-in the name of the pro-life conservative who best represents their values. Newt or Palin will do fine for me. Others may go with Santorum or Perry or someone else, or even vote third party. But we will be voting. Straight conservative!!

"Mao Tse Tung and Stalin would be less of a threat then Obama."

Yes, Romney is anything but what any of us here wanted. He is a (fill in the blank with a hundred profane descriptors). But he is not the devil incarnate Obama hates America with every fiber of his being and intends to destroy it. Four years of Romney will be bad with more leftist, socialist programs. Four more years of Obama will end America. Conservatism will be criminalized in many ways. There will be speech and thought crimes. Public criticism of the Regime will be shut down. Government programs and benefits will be used to reward supporters and severely punish opponents. Picture health care being prioritized by political support, for instance. He**, I can even see figurative (or real) pictures of fields with the skulls of buried conservatives like the killing fields of Cambodia. Think long and hard about what we do with the choice in November. There might not be another choice.

I’m not voting for Romney.

And that is certainly your right. However you stated you were planning to write in Palin and asked if that is considered not voting.

The answer is yes, that is effectively not voting. Palin is not a candidate, can not be elected President as a write in, and does not want your vote. Unlike yourself, Sarah Palin is supporting the Republican candidate and probably wouldn't appreciate you trying to cancel out her vote.

I am not supporting these people. I don't know any of them. Read the FReepmail. I don't like these pictures, especially the poster humblegunner who posted a picture of a child with down syndrome. How is that appropriate?

onyx, you and I have been the same on every candidate this Primary. You know that I've never said anything about Romney.

what people are angry about, including myself, is the pictures, the taunting. I had a religious zealot tell me I was going to burn in hell for being a Lutheran, and he posts countless threads a day saying that without any reprimand.

It’s ironic, though, that everyone the wilding zotters favored were duds at the polls.

Romney began demonizing anyone he saw as a threat to his nomination way back in '07-'08. He used his millions and the millions of fellow mormons to demonize all the candidates this season (except RuPaul).

He has effectively ruined the chance for conservative Christians to see a nominee that could possibly unite the Christian conservatives, the Tea Partys and possibly more independents out of his own selfishness.

He will lose in a landslide and secure four more years of Obama.

Re: the wilding zotters the only "zotter" around is JR. The "suck-ups" ought to do a better job of finding a derogatory term for those of us who refuse to cave to the ABOs.

Is this a thread about helping you keep the site going or funding your rebellion? It matters because as you see, there is another rebellion you seem to be blind to.

Jim, making Obama go away means understanding and accepting the electorate we have. It’s as simple and honest as that. The majority electorate is not as politically conservative as you are, or as I am, or as many here are. It is what it is. I’d gladly replace him with anyone who can win on our side. Stay home then. We’ll will in November anyway. It’s that desperate.

But that is the whole point...we Know what Obama is about...you can fight the enemy who is known....you cannot one who is not.

I fear peoples hatred, though surely warranted, of Obama and this administration is blinding them to the makeup and agenda of what Romney is all about. Seeing him as simple less evil isn't going to get it..he's not. They are equally dangerous to this country.

Romney will be on board and execute further the N. American Union, which again is loss of our soverghnity, and all the other plans for world Governance. The difference is Obama appealed and has assisted the third world countries...Romney will maneuver the wealthier nations, his connections are solid and he has those on the ground to bring this about. But the end result is the same...

Furthermore....Romney has seen very clearly how Obama has bypassed the congress and worked against the Scot-us....do you honestly believe he won't do the same?

Look, by the time those in power give a crap and identify what is being done...the agenda's are too far along for any to stop it....it doesn't matter if it's legal or not to any....our constitution is shot and at most a rumple strip to go around.

Romney too will do what he wants when he wants....no body’s going to hold his feet to any flame because our entire government is on the same page. That is just how it is.

I will not sign onto to any of it by voting for either of these imposter's. Do you really believe they need your vote? Come on Joe...I know you know better.

wow, i haven’t been on this site in a while and the amount of back-and-forth anger among members is pretty intense.

Maybe FR needs to change their policy that comments directly at other members are not allowed and will be pulled. Maybe that will result in a deeper discussion of conservative values and interests.

For example: Remove comments submitted in the first person like “You think i’m a nazi?”...or “You are nothing but a complete (fill in blank).

I’d rather see discussions about developing a list of talking points on all the items that should preclude Obama from being re-elected rather personal attacks.

And you too, onyx.

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.

We all suffered this horrendous primary, as I told onyx in FReepmail I was threatened by a mod on primary night in IL when I was complaining, well more venting, about Romney winning Illinois and how once ago my vote is ignored.

The fire should be over. If JoeProBono is in the upper echelon leadership, I really, really am disappointed that someone in that authority will not reply with rhetoric but reply with offensive pictures.

Now if he was attacking a Ron Paul nut job, or a troll like that drunk crackhead saying something how the right wing and Ron Paul caused 9/11, I say mock away, but don't mock FReepers from 1997 with pictures.

If they were truly trolls Why would they wait 15 years to start trolling? Does that even make sense? I don't think anyone knew who Mitt Romney or Barack Obama was back then!

Jim......I do believe ,considering the times we are in, it is important that FR ‘strengthens’ it’s position. I believe you are trying to do just that, and with it there will be some who will leave, but you will also gain others in due time, I have no doubt of this.

Thank you for maintaining your positions thus far. As for Freedom to express oneself people are complaining about...I want the Freedom on A ‘Conservative site’ to bash Romney all I want without being told I’m ‘a traitor’ for not voting for Romney....or having to scroll by those promoting him here.

May the Lord guide all your decisions ahead...it will matter greatly, and more than we might realize, with what is coming.

This is what I was referring to in my FReepmail... This post has nothing to do with Romney or Rove or RINOS. It is a person who likes to personally attack others because he is hiding behind a computer thinking he can do what he wants. And humblegunner I'm not a kid, and I believe the folks I pinged can kindly tell you that.

This JR is the primary reason people are leaving Free Republic. This FReeper is one of MANY!!! Maybe they have miserable lives outside of Free Republic and their only joy in life is to mock others hidden behind a computer. But if this person made this post even 5 years ago, the mods would have escorted him off.

So much for the "no personal attacks in posts"...

Easy...we rally around the conservatives who are running...sift out the pretenders...and push hard for those who can replace the imbaciles in congress and our local elections.

We can also bash Romney or Obama as always....they are two peas in a pod.
