  • How Rush Limbaugh Made Millennials Like Me Conservative

    I can't give you a specific example, but I can point you to Brandon Straka and the organization he founded.

    Brandon was a gay Democrat who voted for Obama, and Hillary Clinton in 2016. When Trump won, he was horrified and afraid. However, as time passed and he discovered the lies he had believed his entire life, he did his own research and left the Democrat Party.

    Check out the "Walk Away" movement - You will discover that many people are abandoning the liberal plantation.

  • Methodism’s Yalta?

    Slight correction, mbarker12474: the 2008 General Conference added a phrase to the current United Methodist Church’s mission statement. The complete mission statement now reads,”The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Local churches and extension ministries of the Church provide the most significant arenas through which disciple-making occurs.” (Book of Discipline, paragraph 120)

    The various factions within the denomination interpret and implement that differently, but that’s what it says.

    As for the “Yalta” analogy: there are three main factions within the current UMC theological split - traditionalists, progressives, and centrists. Rather than substituting three individuals for Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin, I think the reference refers to the 3 opposing parties/positions.

    (I’m a UM who has attended every General Conference since 2000, never as a voting delegate.)

    I wish I could say this is unique to France, but it is not.

    A female police officer was shot by her partner in a similar incident in St. Louis, MO in January, 2019.

    Very sad in both cases, really.

    I completely agree with your assessment of Rush’s commercials. I, too, prefer he talks and then just lets the commercials be commercials.

    Easy. I heard Rush for the first time on the Wednesday of the 1992 Democrat Convention. The evening before I was making phone calls for then-candidate Jim Talent who was running for the US House of Representatives. One of the other callers talked profusely about "this guy on the radio we all should listen to - Rush Limbaugh." The next day I turned on his show for the first time, and have been a faithful listener ever since.

    A few months after that my husband and friend drove to Myrtle Beach to play golf. During the night, to keep them awake, they listened to cassette tapes of Rush's previous few days' programs. (Probably illegal - sorry, Rush!). They've both been hooked since then also!

    There are 114 counties in MO. The locations that (I know) have signs are in St. Louis, St. Charles, Kirksville, Columbia, Kansas City, Springfield, Cape Girardeau, and Jefferson City.

    There may be others; these are the locations I’m sure of.

    Supporting “Prop A” with a “Yes” vote merely allows the passed-and-signed Right-to-Work, Senate Bill 19, to go into effect.

    State Sen. Bob Onder prefers to call it “Freedom to Work.” Potential employees can CHOOSE whether or not they want to join a union, rather than being compelled to join as a condition of employment.

    Vote “Yes” on Prop A. (Yard signs should be available at Headquarters offices around the state this weekend.)

    Geesh, y'all! And we wonder why the Democrats call us "the stupid party."

    Yes, Ted Cruz did the Trump campaign AND himself no favors when he didn't endorse DJT at the Republican Convention. And yes, he has tried/is trying to "mend his ways" and support the current administration whenever, wherever, and however he can.

    Do we really need to continue this harassment and hatred on Free Republic? There's plenty of wrong and mistrust and disagreement on issues/candidates to last forever. If we continue to disparage our own and each other (other Republicans in primaries whom we don't personally support), and if we continue to get mad and hold grudges at other Republicans who don't believe/vote exactly how we think they should - then why can we be surprised when Republicans hold "circular firing squads" after primaries, and then lose to Democrats?!

    We're just being "the stupid party" the Democrats call us. All they have to do is sit back and watch us destroy each other, and then come in with the claim to "fix it." (You and I know their definition of "fix it" is diametrically opposed to yours, mine, Cruz's, Trump's, and other - NOT ALL!- Republicans.)

    Let's work together, instead of against each other, so we can elect people who have the best interest of the USA (not themselves personally) at heart. And since the 2016 election season is over, let's give each other the benefit of the doubt.

    End of rant.

  • With hopes of 'wave election,' Democrats lining up to take on Rep. Ann Wagner

    Prov3456 to Redplum
    Slight correction: a small portion of Ann Wagner's House District 2 IS in St. Charles County. HD 2 stretches from St. Charles County in the north, through west St. Louis County, and to a small portion of Jefferson County in the south. I know because I live there, and she is my Rep.

    Most of St. Charles County is part (not all) of Blaine Luetkemeyer's 3rd District.

    While all of this is “old history” to FReepers, much of it is NEWS to most millenials and all younger people. They were either not alive or not of-age when Bill & Hill committed their escapades/crimes. And the educational system hasn’t told any of this to public school students - either as “current events” or as part of “American History.”

    IMO, Ms. Broderick’s book will be a real eye-opener and American history lesson to many Americans (assuming they can and do read it - but that’s another story. HA)

  • I just received a curious robocall regarding the Missouri governor's race

    For me, the answer to your question is simple:

    The Missouri Republican House and Senate both have super-majorities, and have passed many good bills which Democrat Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed. Although Nixon is the most-overridden governor in Missouri history, overriding vetoes is difficult.

    With a Republican governor, we would be able to implement many things (right-to-work and tort reform, for example) with the majority vote and the governor's signature. No super-majority would be necessary.

    Greitens wasn't my first choice as Republican candidate - but we need to vote for him as our next Missouri Governor on Tuesday, November 8!

    Thank you, StoneWallJack.

    I might add, as a Cruz supporter, it's comments like many posted on this thread that have caused me to hold on to those funds Free Republic needs to continue.

    I've never had a lot to give, but in the past I've given what I could, when I could. The vitriol and meanness of many during this campaign season has soured me to the point that I will will not give this time - and will have to think about it in the future.

    Thanks again, StoneWallJack, for your emotional support.

    ... so pro-abortion when they don’t have babies.

    ... perhaps because, like many liberal women, they have had abortions. Becoming "rabidly" pro-choice is one manifestation of denial in post-abortive people.

    (This is ENTIRELY theory, but I also wonder how many women "become" lesbians following failed heterosexual relationships and/or abortions.)

    An earlier FR thread made reference to the immigration debate you're referencing.

    "The only similarity Rubio and Cruz share as it relates to immigration is the same similarity that a firefighter and an arsonist share with regards to fire – they were both there at the scene of the crime. The one was a perpetrator of the problem; the other was part of the solution." - See more at:

    I would agree, the base does disrespect the GOPe. However, THEY'VE EARNED IT!

    When McConnell et al said (paraphrasing),"We're going to crush the TEA party," the base heard and remembers. And we're pi***d.

    Currently there is only one abortion clinic in Missouri, Planned Parenthood in St. Louis. The "Kansas City" facility is actually in Kansas, not Missouri.

    The facility is this story was closed several years ago, and for a while has only referred women to the other two locations. Within the past few days they announced that they will begin doing abortions again. (The story mentions August 3, but the reporter isn't much of a writer....)

    Thank you to everyone who stood at this abortion facility - and ALL facilities - today. May God hear your prayers and have mercy on our nation.
