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.
Thanks for the thread, Dood!
You may have already noticed that the "rebellion" is right here on your site and a huge number of freepers are rebelling against the insane idea that supporting Romney to defeat Obama is against "Conservatism". There no one worse than Obama and you know this very well, there is no one even close to him in term of how bad he is, including Romney.
And drop the insults. I'm not impressed and will simply quit responding.
>>I live in Florida. It’s a little more complicated for those of us living in swing states.
And if we write-in the FR-approved candidate in Florida and Obama wins, then the next day, we’ll be reading “Floriduh” posts because WE “re-elected” Obama. Florida and the other swing states need to be strict ABO states or we can kiss freedom goodbye because we’ll be showing our papers to people in blue berets by 2016 if Obama wins.
So you’re using Dan Rahter’s logic on Bush’s service? This report may not be true, but I believe the story is. I just dont have evidence. CONSPIRACIES FOR EVERYONE!!!
Ya got a big heart, Gunner.

And we're now over THIRTY-ONE percent!!!!!!!
Thank you all very much!!!!!!!
You left FR long ago.
You accused me of challenging Jim Robinson’s principles. I challenged you to point out where I had done that.
One may rationally, logically and morally disagree with an opinion and with a strategy. Those disagreements do not go to principles.
For the third time I ask you to show where I opposed the PRINCIPLES that the site espouses.
Or perhaps you could tell me what those principles are. I thought I knew. Maybe I don’t
So he left Bain in 99? Really?

Romney marks the end of the GOP as a conservative force. Or, more truthfully, drops the pretense of it ever being a conservative force.
I absolutely will not vote FOR an abortionist, homosexualist, gun-grabbing, mandate loving, big government statist from EITHER party.
And I shouldn’t have to explain that any further.
Who said they disagree with what the site stands for? You seem to think that anyone who will vote for Mitt must also be against everything on the front page. That is simply not true.
I love me a conspiracy.
Primaries are always bloodfests on FR. Probably always will be. People get passionate about politics.
You were persecuted daily for years on this forum for your Palin support? How is a large group of posters pinging each other and posting the picture of you and Palin while saying 'this is Palin Country'- you being persecuted? Pardon me but did you not realize your forum persecuted Perry,Bachmann and Santorum.I am here to attest to you (just in case you missed this) That is was Parry,Bachmann and Santorum that were persecuted on this forum.We lost a chance at a good conservative all under the guise of Palin running.Primaries are ugly but 'this was Palin Country', is not persecuting you.
I did not. YOU challenged a post that I made to someone else.
You have lied and are simply looking for a fight. We are done.
Standing with ya. Just added a little to the pot.
You’re spinning. Doesn’t work on me.
You are really good at making things up just because you want them to be. I never said he left in 99 or 00 (seems like a splitting of hairs, an argument you said previously you dont like). But was he there when they bought the land? You just speculated that he might have been because you dont trust him. You are no different than Dan Rather.
What a sad thead.
However, there have been many times where both (all) candidates for a particular office were so odious that I could not, in good conscience, vote for any of them.
In those instances, I left that line on the ballot blank.
I will continue that practice.
But my disagreement with your opinion of what to do with your vote is a separate matter from disagreeing with principles as laid down on the home page.
I don’et see why that is so difficult to understand.
Some wounds don’t heal. Words, whether written or spoken are powerful things.
Once spoken you cannot take them back. My Mom used a fence analogy. Everytime you speak a word in anger its like putting a nail in a fence. You can pull the nail out but the hole is still there.
I do too. I just know the NFL made the Cowboys suck this year so they couldnt win the Super Bowl. I heard about it through my foil-radio. But it kept breaking up because the black helicopters from Bildeberger were flying over head.
Things are not as you say. It didn’t go down that way. But it’s fun to vent, isn’t it.
The dissatisfaction has been building up for me for a long time. That is why I lurked, and stopped donating. This thread shows me that I am not the only one.
Now people are expressing how they feel.
I am not sure that they are listening.
In what way? Your heavy on accusations and light on facts, just like Rather. Are you really him?
Well, I’ve explained it a million times. We are rebelling against the politics as usual GOP-e who have now gone a RINO too far. In case you have forgotten, Romney is the proud father of RomneyCare and grandfather of ObamaCare which is his illegitimate brain child. Besides being an abortion/gay rights advocate, he’s a big government mandate loving statist who has pushed every evil, anti-liberty position that Obama has pushed. Their records are virtually identical.
The tea party sprang up to rebel against such tyranny and I signed on for the duration. Doesn’t matter to me if the tyranny comes from the dems or the GOP, it’s still tyranny.
Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God.
We are the resistance!!
More like 99%, I'd guess.
I've kept my peace regarding the primary this time around because my opinions weren't welcome. I like Newt but I had serious doubts about his ability to be nominated, and if nominated his ability to beat Obama. I figured expressing doubts about Newt wouldn't be prudent, and besides, I didn't oppose him, and who knew? Maybe he had a shot. One could hope, anyway. But that's water under the bridge.
During the primary conservative supporters of Newt and Santorum were a large contingent, and once it was down to the final four Newt and Rick were absolutely the last conservatives standing.
But now the primary is all but over. No question, anyone who supports Newt or Rick who can vote for them in the remaining primaries (assuming they are still on the ballot) should do so. That is a message worth sending to the RINOs.
But in the general election it's ABO, and the only ABO candidate who can beat O is Mitt. From this and other threads it looks like even here most people share this viewpoint.
But where does that leave FR? Most conservatives desperately want to be rid of Obama and all his evil cronies. It's not about whether Romney is conservative, no one really believes that, it's whether he's as bad as Obama.
I don't think he is. So you can deduce my vote from that.
It's hard to see how FR survives if any support for the only available choice that can beat Obama results in removal.
If nothing changes it's going to be really lonely around here on election day.
I can’t believe that you said that.
We are done.
Keep telling yourself that principles matter over anything. Principles are important, but if you don’t win elections, your principles and $1 will buy you a burger at McDonald’s.
People who are just as conservative as anyone else are being driven off. Their only offense is that they believe that it is better to have someone who agrees with us 60, 70, or 80% of the time than to have someone like Obama.
Is Mitt the one I wanted? No. I wanted Palin. She didn’t run. Then I wanted Bachmann, then Cain, finally I voted for Santorum. They’re gone. Romney is the nominee and FR is attacking him harder than DU ever has.
You lied. I wouldn’t brag about it.
I can. This isn’t about truth.
How do you interpret “Not going to vote for Romney or Obama” as an attack on Romney? The attacks I’ve seen are mostly against FReepers who are making a moral stand to vote their consciences and not the party line.
They do. Because if one has no principles, one has nothing.
If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything.
Debs! You are not alone. There are others who believe in the Build-a-Burgers and other such subversive plots which are all around us! /s
Exactly. Let the Californians and New Yorkers take a principled stand against the GOP-e. They can thank us later in their hearts while still maintaining their dignity. Those of us in the swing states will hold our noses and do the dirty work.
Very well said. The hyenas have fed on the healthy. Now there is bewilderment as to what has happened.
Well I guess you’ll have to spell it out for me, because I have no idea what your beef is about.
As I have said on our front page and elsewhere many many times, I am pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-constitution, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-Declaration, pro-sovereignty, pro-defense and pro-traditional American conservatism. Statist Romney departs from every one of the above principles. And when the GOP departs from them (which they have by lying and shilling for Romney) then they have left me. It should be no mystery.
Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God.
We are the resistance!!
Vote straight conservative!!
I liked Perry. I wish he were still in it.
But HOW THE HELL do you figure internecine squabbles HERE affected votes?
What percentage of vote failure for any of those folks do you attribute to Free Republic?
Hey, I got my butt hurt over supporting Perry.
I almost got the ZOT over disliking Palin. Bachmann and Santorum I never gave much thought to.
How do you figure trends HERE on FR.. which I'd LOVE to see you
graph out.. affected where we find ourselves today? How exactly?
Draw that conclusion with a few facts, please do.
Otherwise, you're just another sucker whining because you didn't get your way.
Got news, bud. It ain't gone ANY of our way. Suck it up.
Actually, a poster said he quit in 1999 (not a Romney statement) and all you did is prove that the SEC filings in Feb 2000 had his name on it, which I would expect if he was there in 1999. All you proved is that a freeper may have had bad dates, but nothing about a Romney lie. Again, Rather style tactics.
And this is the 2nd time you said you were done with me on this thread. I’m beginning to think that is your standard line when you really dont have facts to back your argument.
Is this a good time to post the eggs benedict pic?
