Attention "Anyone But Obama" (ABO) FReepers! If you go to the thread at the link you will will see that JimRob has "declared a truce" and hundreds of ABO FReepers are now vigorously defending their belief, which I share, that the ineligible Marxist Manchurian MUST BE DEFEATED to preserve the Republic...without fear of "the ZOT"! Please consider a DONATION not just to fund renewal of expression and amplification of your ABO views, but let's over-achieve this FReepathon to get JR his new equipment!
IMO, Free Republic and FReepers could be vital in swing states in rallying just enough conservatives to tip the election and prevent our troops from having to salute for even one day longer than necessary an ineligible Marxist committed to destroying the USA !
Huckabee would be very close.
An actual enforced truce would be a good start.
If conservatives aren't unified against Marxism and in getting an outright villainous tyrant out of the WH, I don't hold out much hope for any earthly thing any more.
If Obama gets another four years, we're all going to have to pray for the strength to endure the dark days ahead. And anyone who minimizes what he will do needs to wake up.
I got mocked by someone imagining himself to be more conservative than I am, for stating the very real threat this great Republic is under.
If conservatives sleep through this election, and even hope for an Obama win (some have actually stated that they do, or said it won't be that bad), every liberty we have is threatened, and those of us who are Christian and conservative will be in the most danger.
I never thought I'd be saying that kind of thing, even a few years ago, but after seeing what Obama has done in 3 years, I think I understand the very real peril we are in.
Jim I understand resistance, but, it is also knowing what battle to fight to win the war.Where would we be today if Churchill didn’t embrace Stalin to defeat Hitler? Choose your battles wisely, todays friend can be tomorows enemy.
Yes Romney will be bad for this country. He won’t be as bad as Obama.
Not voting doesn’t make a statement anymore than a 2 yr old stamping his feet does.
You’re the one being shrill. Knock it off already. It’s tiresome.
“I’m not voting for liberal Romney”
- “You Mormon bashing bigot!”
- “You must really love Obama then!”
That truce is not long for this website, is it?
No mea culpa warranted, intended or given. I was simply proposing that the conservative FReepers and grassroots tea party conservatives quit tearing each other apart. When our conservative grassroots organizations are destroyed, the progressives win.
And I stated in the same post that I personally cannot support Mitt Romney for president regardless of who else may endorse him.
But we have a huge fight coming after the elections regardless of who wins. It’s in our best interest as grassroots conservatives to unite behind the conservatives running in all other races across this great land to increase our majorities where we hold them and retake them where we don’t, and to man the barricades against tyrannical government at every level!! The barbarians are in the gate!!
We are the resistance!!
If not us, who?
If not now, when?
FR is not for sale!!
This is a conservative site, not a Republican one.
If he were a RINO, Jim would be filthy rich by now, the easy road is not the one he has chosen.
I only see people’s comments about religion when I actually click on and view articles discussion religion. Otherwise I don’t. If I don’t want to see them I don’t.
If somebody’s trying to hijack a thread that is non religious and change the subject, if you’re so moved, call them on it. Maybe others on the thread will agree too.
That's always a good enough reason.
Skip my posts.
Well, I’m not going to compare myself to Churchill, but I will paraphrase him.
Never give up, never give in, never surrender!!
By the way, I don’t remember Churchill nominating Stalin for Prime Minister.
Not that I’m comparing Romney to Stalin either, that was your doing.
Not planning on going anywhere. :)
And ditto to the learning from differing views, and constantly re-examining our own because we read them.
I've been a life long conservative, but have honed some of my views because of things I've learned here.
If that's going to end because people are in danger of being zotted for expressing those differing, but still conservative views, then this forum can't recover.
I have some hope now that things will settle down and we can begin working together instead of eating our own.
SAM, you have been here a long time, there has been many of a hijacked thread about religion and many post opposing it,it continues on.
Nobody here says religions are not equal in the sense they are allowed to exist and people can pick whatever one they want to join (or leave) freely. Perhaps except the muslims leaving freely.
However they are not all equal in the sense that people will say they all are correct. Not even all other religions will say that. Some may say “multiple paths” but not all will, and not all will clarify which others they say are valid other paths.
No religion is above and protected from scrutiny and criticism. Nor should they be. Christianity, which I am assuming is the one you’re beefing about here, is hardly protected from criticism and ridicule even here. No group here gets a free pass or gets to have sacred cows that can’t be touched. If you think that, you only been selectively browsing the religious forum. Much less other articles that posters bring up Christianity in them.
The difference here is that defending Jesus from “con-man” claims, Christians can easily win that argument. With Joseph Smith, ehhhhh, not so much.
ZOT the obvious disruptors, of course.
I agree with that.
But the pro-Romney shills who expect us to forget about his record and support him as if he were a true blue conservative and bash those who don’t agree.... those are the ones who would make my trigger finger itch. If I had a trigger.
For the record I have never been a moderator, and have never been asked to be one. Even though I agree with Jim Robinson about 99.5%+ of the time. :p
No, I didn’t make that comparison, but, Churchill and Stalin had a common enemy, just like we have a common enemy in the WH right now. Jim, it is my sincere belief that we must defeat him this coming election without fail. There may be nothing left if we don’t.
Do you have a better authority in mind than Mohammad?
Good on you. If this becomes a three-man-left website, I will be one of the three.
