Psssttt...most of FR does feel this way.
No where in that story does it say if a WTA holds early, they are forced to change to proportional. It clearly says they were punished half the delegates. They had a choice, and chose to lose delegates.
you are 100% correct.
I love this site and agree with the majority 95% of the time, but I keep it to myself when i don’t agree.
Some of the folks here can be vicious!!
What you don’t seem to get, is that most people aren’t so delusional that they think that Romney is going to be Reagan, the just know he isn’t Karl Marx. He doesn’t hate white people and he won’t shut down conservative sites.
Four more years of Obama will not usher in a Conservative for President. It will just get us another Marx.
With Obama we know what we are going to get. How can you ignore his little aside to the Russian President that he just needs to wait until he is re-elected to do what he wants?
Do you really think people would want to elect a conservative who sat back and let that happen?
That was directed to the “anybody but BO!” crowd, btw.
So, you answer boils down to, “Free discussion of anything we agree with is accepted and encouraged.”
And, if you’ll notice, I didn’t say the first thing about endorsing Romney. What I asked is whether this is a site where conservatives of varying stripes are free here to discuss their differences respectfully. You simply cannot give me a straight yes or no answer.
That works both ways. Why do you think liberal Romney can beat Obama when McCain couldn't?
We did hold our nose and vote for McCain. Romney will be a replay. I refuse to do it again. I will not vote for someone that is the exact opposite of what I believe.
Why do you, and several here, say that keeping Obama is better than Romney?
I've never said such. I said they are the same.
“You dont believe that free discussion takes place here?”
I get my news here and donate frequently, but I have no illusions that free discussion takes place here. It does not.
The shrinking base of readers and posters will probably require a change in the business model, including commercial revenue and subscriptions.
Really?...like they held back Obamacare from passing? Like they held back increasing the debt ceiling? and the list goes on.
Romney is a socialist and he will simply continue the same agenda just with a different face on it, and it likely will be worse because the Gop will lay back all the more with seemingly "their man" at the helm.
Yeah, ok. You’re just mad because people arent cowering to you anymore.
It’s not just the harpie coven that ruin things, it’s the damned blogpimp police too.
Who the hell do those guys think they are anyway?
They’ve likely run off dozens of good conservative bloggers.
Oh, wait... ..
Murraymom was FR's sole token liberal. While disruptors were zotted, she was allowed to stick around praising Clinton and bashing Bush for reasons that I'm not entirely sure of. Back then though, everyone to the right of Hillary had a voice here, from the moderate to the ultra conservative. People weren't banned for disagreement within conservative orthodoxy. Zots only occurred when liberal newbies signed up specifically to troll the site and egregious violations of posting rules.
I always check the past posting history. I celebrate if it is a deserved zot of what appears to be almost certainly a troll. Sign up date really doesn’t mean anything. It’s past posting history that matters. I never celebrate a zot that I consider wrong and usually comment that I don’t understand why that one was zotted.
Apparently you are blind to the fact that the media hates Republicans, even if in name only. They will want another ‘Rat installed post haste, and will do what they can to hobble Romney.
The attacks on Palin were just as vicious as any other candidate. Actually she was not yet a candidate but the attacks were still nasty. So what? FR has always had battles.
“The owner has staed that he will not allow FR to be used to campaign for Romney. Do you believe that is his right?”
Of course that’s his right. It’s the labeling of anyone who says “ABO” as “campaigning for Romney” that’s having a significant effect on fund raising.
I like the doggie ping list !!
As for unbiased .....?????
Jim Robinson has every right to state that his activist, conservative site
Of course he does. Absolutely!! But... has FR ever been in this predicament before? Where the GOP candidate was not allowed to be supported?
