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.

I don’t know why you’d want to belong to a place that you claim does all that. You can not possibly believe it’s one of the best sites of the web if you truly believe all that you posted.

Then we'd pour the little package of peanuts into the Ar-Uh-See Cola. : )

Hell Jim, I don't know where from the post I made to a fellow vet you got the idea I was dissing you or even the forum. As far as the GOPe you won't find any discord from me. I switched my party affiliation from GOP to "none" when the Senate refused to have a real trial for Xlinton. And as there is no conservative running that has a chance of being elected, I really don't have a dog in this hunt.

However, I do believe the forums, as our Republics, best days are behind us. And it has nothing to do with you and your family. I don't post much these days, as basically there aren't very many threads that capture my interest. I was both amazed and disappointed that this thread, meant to be a jab at folks to get off the dime, degenerated into both a political thread and then aimed at you.

As far as telling someone how to vote their conscience I am reminded of a quote from John Quincy Adams which recommended that one should vote their conscience, even if you are the only vote, or words to that effect.

Again, I don't know how you assumed either that I supported Romney nor had any questions as to the why and how you finance your property. The Captain may not always be right but the Captain is always the Captain.

Do you have proof that would stand up in court that she wasn’t?

I don't have proof that "would stand up in court" that a giant asteroid isn't about to hit and end all life on earth tomorrow afternoon either, but if someone makes that claim I think the onus is on them to at least provide some real evidence.

Offering the "oh my favorite politician must have been threatened" as an explanation for why someone didn't run for office is an old joke at this point. It's even less believable than the laughable, "I resigned from office to spend more time with my family" line commonly uttered by politicians caught in corruption scandals.

Come on now, lets stick to reality and avoid drifting off into fantasy land. Can we stop with conspiracy theories as explanations for why things we don't like happen in life.

Thank you lonestar. We all need to cool down and realize that eventually we are going to have to work together to have any kind of future. I am not getting involved in anything but in my case... I have had an epiphany. I will passionately disagree where I do and post accolades when I agree. But from now on, I will try to treat others here as I want to be treated. Maybe if I can do it... others can... then more. We can at least try to work together on points that we agree upon. We have a House to increase and a Senate to seize... and then we need fresh leaders in both chambers. Thanks for accepting my apology. I am still 100% behind Palin. I was wrong in how I acted here and I know that I caused hurt and dismay. Palin would not have agreed with the way that I acted at times... I can't change that now... but I can change going forward... I am giving it my best shot.

Oh, LLS, thank you.....but speaking for myself, I don’t remember you being harsh.

There were a few who went absolutely nuts, demeaned the South, Southerners, Texans, etc. I don’t think that reflects badly on FR, just the individuals who were doing it. There are jerks in every crowd. You weren’t one of them. We all have our candidates, and we support them with everything we have.

Your post was the post of a really standup person.

Well 2DV, I finished reading this gnormous thread and have come to the following conclusion:

Jim might as well give up on FR. It's days of remaining life are few in number.

Because there are literally hundreds of individuals who can take a couple of hundred dollars, buy a used server off E-Bay and Shazaam! -- there will be hundreds of newer, better FRs.

And each and every one of them will immediately get ALL of the members currently contributing to, or freeloading from, FR to come over and sign up. These transferring individuals will all be able to sign-up at every one of the hundreds of newer, better FRs because -- they won't have to contribute any real money -- the operating costs at every site will be so low.

Advertisers are guaranteed to fight each other to sign up to advertise at these newer, better FRs because -- well just because they will! Everybody knows they will!

And everyone will get along wonderfully with each other at all of these wondrous new sites? After all the only reason people don't get along on FR is because of Jim and his silly "principles", that are forced on everyone by his jack-booted, brown-shirted "Mods". The new sites will be la-la lands of smiling, happy customers, singing "cumbaya" and "If I could buy the world a Coke"!

So Jim might as well accept it and either give up and shut down FR completely, or accept the fact that FR will just become a backwater hobby site for him and John, with a few "far right wing crazies" posting about "Principles" and other things nobody really cares about when push comes to shove.

As best I can guess from reading all the posters on this thread, Jim has maybe 2-3 weeks before all the new and improved, "one-day to setup" FR sites blast their way onto the Innertoobs, and zoom their way up the web-site ratings charts.

Soooo, either FR and Jim's efforts will soon die, or .... there are a lot of whining, complaining, wannabees who would rather just keep FR around, reading its content without contributing a cent, and spending their time telling Jim how they could do it better, faster, cheaper, with high quality -like the old days, yadda, yadda, yadda, and who will NEVER, EVER get around to actually firing up those hundreds of newer, better FRs.

But, surely they really, really mean to get those $200 sites fired up pronto, don't you think 2DV?

Let's keep our eye out for these new FRs. If you spot them first, let me know, and I'll do the same for you, ok?

A good sense of humor and the ability to laugh with, rather than be laughed at and get angry, is a good way to handle life.

My Dad always swore by that. It has served me well.

Hopefully all will vote conservative down ballot in November...but I do think many are still on the fence as to how to go about ‘their’ vote for President...they have to justify to themselves that decision, and live with it, many are sincerely struggling about Romney...Understandably.

There's ‘plenty of time’ between now and November for the undecided....and for those who might even change their minds from how they see things now... we don't know what can happen between now and November. So I say give people time to sort it out for themselves and important to do that...and it's not just the Republicans struggling...the web certainly evidences Democrats are having quite the time justifying their support for Obama....interesting times doesn't say enough.

Further more, God can certainly arrange numerous happenings between now and then .....you just don't know what even tomorrow will bring let alone 6 months from now.

But I will not be voting for Romney.....I'll trust God to “float my boat” ....since He handled Noah's ark He can certainly can handle my little wee craft....

You are 100% correct. Everyone with $200 to spare can become an FR. Hell, for $400 they can become the next Drudge. Heck, it’d be cheap at 10 times the price.

Fine, let us waste our time debating the merits of abortion and it’s various forms, perhaps homosexual marriage.

Let's recap. You initially claimed:

we could never get anything done if we were just debating liberalism versus conservatism all day.

To which I replied, "I don't understand the notion that these two actions are mutually exclusive."

So I ask again: what are we "getting done"? What activism is happening? Now that this site is an echo chamber, do you have a lot more time no longer "wasted" that can now be devoted to activism?

Holocaust? One word? Abortion. Fifty million and growing innocent and helpless unborn babies slaughtered by our government. The equivalent of an entire generation. The American Holocaust.

And what did Romney say about it for three decades of his adult life? Abortion should be safe and legal in America. And later proclaimed that Roe v Wade is settled law and should be preserved and sustained as such. And boasted that he would do nothing to harm a woman’s right to choose (to murder her unborn child). Then introduced taxpayer funded abortion into his state through his socialized compulsory health care scheme complete with planned parenthood on the board. And even appointed liberal judges to ensure his liberal progressive policies would be upheld.
