Vanity Opinion: Free Republic to Maintain Present Course - Call for More Turns on the Screws.
Patriots and Politics ^ | September 6, 2002 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 09/06/2002 4:36:11 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Just in case there is any lingering doubt, my intention for Free Republic is to maintain the present course. The course charted is, IMHO, the direct line to freedom.

Our mission, as stated on our front page and elsewhere is, "...to roll back decades of governmental largesse, to root out political fraud and corruption, and to champion causes which further conservatism in America."

And we always have fun doing it. Hoo-yah!

The people who are killing freedom in our country just as they are all around the world are the leftists or marxists. The leftists/marxists dominate the communist parties, the socialist parties and the American Democrat Party.

The leftist/marxist infested Democrat Party has controlled all or most of our government for what? Sixty, seventy, eighty years or more of the last hundred?

The populists, progressives, socialists, marxists, leftists, liberals, Democrats, or whatever label you place on them are the people responsible for the slave tax, aka, the income tax, the "New Deal," the Ponzi social security scheme, the "Great Society," the socialist medicare nightmare, the welfare state, environmentalnazism, feminazism, high taxes, high spending, weakening and demoralizing our military, etc., etc.

They're also responsible for abridging/restricting/curtailing many of our constitutionally guaranteed rights, such as the right to keep and bear arms, the right to freely practice our religions, the right to freedom of association, while at the same time inventing a whole new class of extra constitutional leftist "rights" such as the "right to choose," i.e., legalized abortion, "gay rights," the "separation of church and state," etc.

In addition, they are responsible for "socializing," i.e., implementing government forced and taxpayer funded education, health care, insurance and retirement programs.

They've completely taken over our our education systems where they indoctrinate our youth with their immoral and Godless socialist dogma. They've dummied-down, demoralized and destroyed our society and our traditional family units and value systems.

After all this, to me, they are the party mostly to blame for the erosion of our Constitution, the destruction of our society, the loss of our national sovereignty, the loss of our states rights, and the wholesale corruption of our government.

Thus, as I see it, the best course of action to right these wrongs is to continue removing the liberals, socialists and leftists from our government as fast as we can. Eliminating the liberal influence automatically raises the level of conservatism in our government and its institutions.

We eliminate them by replacing them with non Democrats. This means, for the most part, supporting and voting for the Republican candidate in each race whether it be federal, state or local.

The Libertarians, Reformers, and other third parties know they cannot win national races. They do a great job writing, debating, and fighting for our constitutional rights, but they are not effective enough to win races. God bless them, they do not have and never will have the numbers necessary to win.

I fully support President Bush and the war on terrorism. We either fight this war now, and fight it over there and on our terms, or we can wait and fight it here on our soil. I never want to see a repeat of 9/11!

I never again want to see American blood running down our streets. The primary function of the federal government is to defend our borders, and, in this fight, that is exactly what we are doing.

I urge all conservatives and freedom loving Americans to go to the polls in November and give the President and the Congress a mandate to swing America away from the left. The pendulum has been way off to the left for way too many years. It's time to swing it our way for a change. It's time to crank a few more turns to the screws.

By the way, none of the above is designed to curtail valid criticism of the President, the war or the Republican Party. There are many things about the President's policies and the Republican Party that are truly deserving of criticism, and there are programs and policies that should be changed or withdrawn. But what I am after for the coming years is to elect as many Republicans as possible, especially conservative Republicans, and to give them an opportunity to overcome and out vote the liberals and moderates of both parties.

We need conservative judges. We need to block the leftist/sovereignty robbing treaties. We need to cut taxes, cut spending, cut regulation and cut government while maintaining a strong military and a strong national defense. These are my goals.

And, no, I do not receive any funding from the Republican party, or anyone else. Free Republic is funded solely by reader donations.

See y'all later. Gone FReepin.

And we need more people like Jim Robinson.
Thank you Jim for this board and your steady hand...

I registered to vote today.

We're gonna take this thing back completely.

Let the haters whine about the minutia involved but for me....right now....the fight is against the Left. The internal bickering can wait until we have taken back our government.

Bravo, Jim. Yes sir.

The time and effort we use to criticize each other is better and more productively spent on keeping the Left in our crosshairs.

They are the real enemies. But we'd rather engage in a circular shootout and let the Left off the hook.

You got it! It's time to fish or cut bait now. If a conservative doesn't want to help me fight the Left, then that conservative needs to get out of my way.

Your focus on the judges is key. Judges made themselves more powerful than Congress and the President combined. Judges are taking complete control of our everyday lives, dragging down our economy, and reinforcing liberal dogmas. Judges are also easy targets, such as that burglar who successfully sued homeowners when he cut himself breaking in their window. Without a GOP senate, that is not going to change.

Your advice to third parties must have been difficult to say. Because like you said, "God bless them." Exactly. They are patriots, but at the same time, we need to push through a senate majority.

After reading this article ( Democrats for Regime Change) today, I believe we should concentrate on removing Sen. Dasshole as Senate Majority leader. Leader is not a title he should possess.

i STILL STRONGLY AGREE.

BTW, Jim, I hate to try and tackle such a problem with law but I wonder what practical solution there might be . . .

I think government should have a very low minority of lawyers instead of 90+%??? At least they should not have a larger proportion of legislative posts than their percentage in the population.

I also think Judges should NOT be lawyers at all. Judges need to be acknowledged fair, honorable, honest, down to earth; salt of the earth folk with a long track record of such in their local communities before becoming a judge--including of the Supreme court.

I believe these two things could raise conservatism a lot--at least freedom a lot. I'm curious if you have any thoughts on such.

I also think Judges should NOT be lawyers at all.

The best judges I've met were never lawyers.

That said, I have to point out that as long as we have a legal system as complex as we do, we have to have judges that know the law.
