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.

Yes... rudy guiliani was banned rightfully from being promoted here and if he had received the nomination... he would not have been allowed to be promoted here either.

“Oh that is another good point. About people making fun of new people.”

The “n00b” crap reminds of the kind of bullying done by elementary school children.

I think there are many many valid points made here. Things that really needed to be said.
I have tried in the last few months to wean myself away from here and I have tried hard. It is difficult. Other places just aren’t the same, but I am very hesitant to support FR like I used to do. Look I am a 58 year old female pharmacist, I go to church, donate to Salvation Army,
help animals, belong to garden club and hoping soon to be a DAR member. There is absolutely no reason for my to be called names when I express an opinion that is not hook line and sinker with what you believe. I thought this place was about intelligent discussion, but more often if you express an opinion that is something different you are called troll, cussed out just many horrible things.
And tell me why would anyone new want to join here when they are made fun of. Granted there are a lot of people that come here to put conservatives in a bad light. They will say racist things to make conservatives look bad. I have seen that more than once. But I should not be called names because I will vote for Romney. I sent money to Cain, we gave it our best shot there. But there is no way I will not take any opportunity to vote against this communist, islamist phoney in the White House. I just can’t do it.

I know that I cannot and will not vote for Romney, but that’s solely my business.

Right there with you. We certainly MUST STOP OBAMA! We must work very hard for an open Convention right now. Also vote straight conservative!

We must put our energies into doing everything we can to elect TEA Party patriots to every elected office across our land,
in our local offices and particularly in our Congressional districts and our U.S. Senate races.

Why should FR not also take their stand and for that matter "Strengthen Their Position?"

Because it is divisive and exclusionary, and I struggle to understand how that position helps the country, or Free Republic.

I understand Jim's views. I also understand that FR belongs to Jim, and it is up to him where he takes it.

I would find it helpful to have some insight into the plan though, because I just don't understand it. What outcome does FR want for the election, and what outcome for the website? Right now, it seems that if you want to stay as a Freeper you are required to allow yourself to be marginalized, because we refuse to support the election. From where I sit, this is the absolute wrong time to allow ourselves to be marginalized. The only way we get a seat at the table is to be on the team.

Well, I guess people will tire of me saying it, but you gotta do what you gotta do. And I’m not going to lie and shill for Romney. I’ve studied his record and know what a lying leftist/progressive he really is.

Other than that, I do sincerely sympathize with the guy who said, “can’t we all just get along.”

Thank you very much for your past support.

Yes, I'm aware of that. I deliberately chose him to illustrate the fact that, while not everyone agreed politically, the debate was vigorous because most were very well-versed in their opinions. I would hope you at least have the intellectual honesty to appreciate the fact that Hitchens was an intelligent man even though he was an atheist.

Thank you very much for your past support.

Can I make a suggestion?

Do you wanna see FR return to its glory days? Two simple steps:

1.) Un-zot every account you've zotted since April '07 and invite all those old Freepers back. Guaranteed word would spread and many would return.

2.) Put a leash on your moderators. Let people hash it out with each other, settle old scores and speak their mind free of fear from the zot. Intellectual discourse would once again set this place apart from the rest.

You could still maintain on a personal level your anti-Romney stance while allowing the members of this forum to speak freely without restraint. Jim, this was the Free Republic I joined over eleven years ago. It was a great place! (And I'd bet the money would start flowing back in as well).

Anyways, something to ponder...

A phony appeal to populism is no excuse for poor logic, false appeals and acceptance only of lockstep opinion.

Not speaking about you specifically, of course. I don't think I ever met you prior to this exchange.

“Can you define Marxist? I see it thrown around a lot, but define it. What is the difference between a Marxist, Communist, and Socialist. Or, do we just have to keep changing the insult word once the current one loses its bite (RINO has become GOP-e now)?”

A marxist is someone who studies and practices the teachings and manifesto of karl marx. To be a marxist, one must be a communist... but not all communists are marxists... although they all follow the same basic tenants. Then you have Communists... who can be marxists, or muslims, or maoists or even a kennedy. Then you have socialists... who are people that want a Big Central Command government and want cradle to the grave support for every facet of their lives. They too are communists... they either are too stupid to adimit it... or are afraid to admit it to themselves... or they cannot make up their mind which school of communism to follow.

There is a difference when you stop someone before the nominee is decided. It is another thing to stop the decided nominee in favor of the other guy who happens to be Obama. If you respect the process at all, the voters have decided.

I agree that the process this go round was totally screwed in favor of Romney. Thing is anyone who was running beside him should have been aware of that and planned for it.

Problem is, that didn’t happen and conservatives failed to field someone who could get votes. Santorum came the closest to unseat Romney.

I kept my mouth shut after Santorum bowed out just to see if it was a fact that Santorum was keeping Newt from winning. Unfortunately, it was the other way around.

The pro life, pro family guy was abused and made fun of. If principle means something, you choose who fits those principles, even if he is swathed in a sweater vest, that shows he can beat the other guys. That did not happen.

So, here we are.

There’s nothing worse than an old fart claiming things were better in the old days.

There’s just as much common sense, logic and intellectual honesty at FR as there has always been. Just because you don’t like what is being said doesn’t change that.

Hitchens may or may have not been “smart” but I certainly do not think he had common sense, logic or anything close to intellectual honesty. No liberals do.
