Let's put this to bed. We have bigger fish to fry.

Everyone please send whatever you are able to, whether it is $10, $100 or $1,000+. The DUmmies, Morons, Kos Kiddies and that crew are laughing up their sleeves. Jim may have to make this site members only or allow ads. Better for us to just help with what we can. Maybe you can donate as a memorial for a lost loved one, a servicemember who never made it home or was disabled defending our country. Perhaps you'd like to give to keep free discussion alive and to show them that we're not knuckling under. I'm sure a well thought out or prayerful meditation will lead you to see the need and how you can help. If every registered FReeper and our lurkers would each just help out with a fin or a sawbuck, or better yet a Ben Franklin, we could put this to bed and get on with the conservative cause.

Those who choose to vote for other then Romney or Obama have not wasted there vote as some would assume. They hold to Principle that neither of these candidates are qualified to fill

“Always Vote for Principle,....though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.”

“The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere.”

— Thomas Jefferson, Author of the Declaration of Independence, 3rd President of the U. S.

If an election is to be determined by a majority of a single vote,.... and that can be procured by ‘a party’ through artifice or corruption,... the Government may be the choice of a party for ‘its own ends’,.. not of the nation for the national good.”...(that would be the GOP.)

— John Adams (1797-1801) Second President of the United States and Patriot

It's as I thought. You don't know how to define "real" conservatism

Yeah that...nor real conservativism neither!

Ignoring the point of the post, I see.

Nah. You just didn't like the answer.

You aren't the owner. You are not responsible for lawsuits, maintenance, taxes, administration nor the creation of the site. Posters donate to keep FR running. You are not buying shares.

I’ll bet you called other people bots.

Like Perrybots, etc.

Advice to you: It’s tacky.

Your hatred speaks volumes, and your fear of the truth puts a vampire's fear of the sun to shame.

Classic case of projection, there, Wolfstar.

You know the truth about the equipment being ordered.If you can get the equipment so much cheaper, why don't you offer to do so and install it.

The truth is, you have some kind of personal beef with the owner here,and so, you engage in personal attacks of the lowest order.

So, again, for the third time, why are you still here?

You have changed a lot since that past, tonight you are attacking Reagan like a dedicated romneybot.

Please define a romneybot so we are all really clear. I'm pretty sure it is exactly this kind of slur that many people are getting sick of. Is Sarah Palin who is ABO and will be voting for Mitt, a romneybot? How about Newt, Santorum, Cain, Perry, Cheney? All romneybots? Is Jim Demint a romneybot? Is Tom Coburn a romneybot? Are the 90-95% of conservatives/Republicans that are going to vote for Willard all romneybots? Is everyone that recognizes that only a vote for the GOP nominee can help defeat the dog eater a romneybot?

Some of you people, particular the more obnoxious ones, throw that term around as if we all love and are thrilled with Romney. Very few people on FR actually wanted Romney and most still really don't like him. The reality is Willard is the nominee though, and for many/most of us it is simply about defeating Obama. Very few people are singing Romney's praises here, but I think most recognize Mitt is the only vehicle available to dump Obama.

The Jefferson Bible. He rewrote the New Testament without any supernatural events. He did not believe they happened. And he still was elected overwhelmingly for two terms. If the population of the time sampled the politics of today, they would find it milquetoast and dumbed down.

What’s killing the website is wolves in sheeps clothing, listening to hatred and anger on another site, and believing it. When I see the kinds of misinformation that you posted, I know exactly where it came from. You’ve been here long enough that you should know better.

Would PBS, Red Cross, or Salvation Army exist if they drove off their donors?

No, they wouldn’t. They recognize the value of their donors and adjust to meet their donors expectations.

Therefore, there is an explicit recognition by those organizations that they exist at the sufferance of their donors.

The Free Republic could use a little bit of that.

Pragmatism is the key. A Conservative without it becomes a footnote. A Conservative with it has books written about them.

Very true, in politics and in life.

Oh, yes. So Right. I’ve never been one to call abuse but some of the posters on the Perry threads were so NASTY, believe me, sexual innuendos, lies about Perry’s stand on immigration, it was horrible.

I was amazed that it was tolerated.

I am not talking posts that argued against Perry about actual positions or things he had done or not done.

These were all just odious, repetitive hate posts.

Started (in my opinion) by Cain lovers and allowed because the site was officially Cain lover at that time.

It signaled the death of civility here for me.

To: Moorings

I assume you are right.

I do not follow such threads much at all because I see the whole political charade and farce re the SElection to be absurdly false.

I no longer believe that any of our votes make a microscopic bit of difference. I don’t believe they have for a very long time.

It is all psych-ops manipulation by the power brokers as well as rigged corrupt vote counting etc. etc. etc.

I think the oligarchy are masters at getting us to fight among ourselves on things that do NOT MAKE A BIT OF DIFFERENCE.

Personally, I think getting OThuga out of office is a higher priority than his fraternal twin Mitt Marxist Romney’s ALMOST equal evils.

And, it APPEARS that the oligarchy has decided to install Mitt next. Or, perhaps they are watching to see how the populace is manipulated successfully and then will decide at the last minute which to install this Nov.

I’m just 100% convinced that our votes do NOT decide ANY of the major SElections at all.

So, all the Romney etc. stuff to me personally is just meaningless blather at MOST levels.

Nevertheless, a LOT OF HONORABLE, TRULY CONSERVATIVE FREEPERS have been unnecessarily hurt by a lot of that blather. That GRIEVES ME A LOT.

We don’t need that. FR doesn’t need that. The Republic doesn’t need that. There’s no benefit to our cause from that.

People can speak their convictions without shredding someone’s personhood.

IF conservatives cannot do so, then we are like Christians blathering the Bible without walking the walk.

We can disagree without being disagreeable. Or, I thought we could.

The more FR seems like a romper room for 2 year olds throwing 2 year tantrums and epithets at one another for silly reasons . . . the more people HAVE to wonder why they bother with it.

LOL, for some reason I can imagine you choking kittens to death with one hand, as you type about freerepublic with the other, in a quietly hateful rage that you find erotic.

You have a style that seems reminiscent of the old Giuliani days here when the anti-God crowd was so vocal.

You don't own it. You didn't create it. You have none of the responsibility.

Sooner or later folks reap what they have sown.

Some folks wear it better than others.

I just hope we all learn from our own flaws as well as those of others. LOL.

You know I greatly agree with you, Dear Heart.

I think my only exposure to you, that I can recall, is you pushing Romney in every which way you can.

I have no clue if what you just typed is true or not....however, WITHOUT A SCANNED AND POSTED COPY of such...it is hearsay, libel even...by someone who is disgruntled. (you)

So...prove to me what you posted is the truth.

Quite frankly, it was beyond tacky, imho.
