The past few years on Free Republic have been less than satisfying for me. When I first began reading material on the forum in 1999, it was a bastion of free conservative thought with lively but mostly respectful debate. Following GW’s second inauguration, I sensed a decline in the quality of reason, a gathering of vituperous attitudes, an increase in in-fighting among us. Initially, I thought it due to false flag posters, but as time passed, I sensed that it was attitudinal in nature.

Generalizations, religious prejudice, compartmentalism and outright rudeness are exhibited in virtually every discussion.

These days, I only come to FR when I am figuratively wearing my boots, and don’t mind getting shit all over them.
