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.
Yeah, ok. You’re just mad because people arent cowering to you anymore.
It’s not just the harpie coven that ruin things, it’s the damned blogpimp police too.
Who the hell do those guys think they are anyway?
They’ve likely run off dozens of good conservative bloggers.
Oh, wait... ..
Murraymom was FR's sole token liberal. While disruptors were zotted, she was allowed to stick around praising Clinton and bashing Bush for reasons that I'm not entirely sure of. Back then though, everyone to the right of Hillary had a voice here, from the moderate to the ultra conservative. People weren't banned for disagreement within conservative orthodoxy. Zots only occurred when liberal newbies signed up specifically to troll the site and egregious violations of posting rules.
I always check the past posting history. I celebrate if it is a deserved zot of what appears to be almost certainly a troll. Sign up date really doesn’t mean anything. It’s past posting history that matters. I never celebrate a zot that I consider wrong and usually comment that I don’t understand why that one was zotted.
Apparently you are blind to the fact that the media hates Republicans, even if in name only. They will want another ‘Rat installed post haste, and will do what they can to hobble Romney.
The attacks on Palin were just as vicious as any other candidate. Actually she was not yet a candidate but the attacks were still nasty. So what? FR has always had battles.
“The owner has staed that he will not allow FR to be used to campaign for Romney. Do you believe that is his right?”
Of course that’s his right. It’s the labeling of anyone who says “ABO” as “campaigning for Romney” that’s having a significant effect on fund raising.
I like the doggie ping list !!
As for unbiased .....?????
Jim Robinson has every right to state that his activist, conservative site
Of course he does. Absolutely!! But... has FR ever been in this predicament before? Where the GOP candidate was not allowed to be supported?
I have a feeling I’m not so much different than a lot of people around. I think and feel the way they do.
The difference may lie in the fact that without treatment soon I will be dead by years end.
It changes my perspective.
I look at my beautiful two grandbabies and there is no doubt that I can pull that trigger and put a bullet in THE GOVERNMENT.
Too much talk about Obama. Too much debate about POTUS.
There are 535 MOTHER F###ERS in Congress who haven’t and will not do anything for me.
It isn’t about what THEY SAY THEY WILL DO.
It is about what I SAY THEY WILL DO.
535 is a few more than I can take. So if I could only find around 50 more people to help, I think the video of that little donnybrook may even make it onto Youtube. Hell. It may even go viral.
Now for the funny part.
If I could find 1,000 people to kick ten bucks each into the Get Well Pat Fund I wouldn’t need those other 50 people’s help.
So YOU are the mistress of Zots.
Well, you are a fine woman. Thanks for the good work.
Suck up enough?
“Its not just the harpie coven that ruin things, its the damned blogpimp police too.

There may be more truth in your jest than you think.
They haven't for a long time to me. Somebody who is honest about his political preference is not trying to take down the site.
“This site has never supported Ron Paul.”
Ya don’t say. I thought it was Romney you couldn’t stomach. Now it’s Paul too? Please give me a list of who else is verboten so I can efficiently march in lockstep.
“The attacks on Palin were just as vicious as any other candidate.”
And many of the attackers were given a quick zot. You know it and I know it.
Thank you very much, 2ndDivisionVet!!

And we’re now over THIRTY-ONE percent!!
We are the resistance!!
But he does believe that he will become a god with his own planet to rule.
You are arguing emotion and motivation. I'm talking about what Romney has actually done. None of it conservative, including strangling business in Mass by passing Cap & Trade.
It is arresting to imagine a Romney White House, inevitably filled with as many former Bain colleagues as each of his other public ventures have been: The PowerPoints, the 80-20 jargon, the clinical separation of decision-making from ideology, the detachment of those decisions from moral consequence, a persistent blind spot for people as people. It would represent the final ascension of a perfectly American type, one that has already remade the culture of business. I once asked a Bain colleague of Romneys how Romney thought of his own core competence. I think Mitt thinks hes good at being Mitt Romney, the colleague said.
I dont remember the attacks being about Palin (aside from pissant) as much as they were about the blind following and Obama-like cult following she had, and how it was dangerous to get so wrapped up in a candidate. If there were attacks against her, it was that she either wasnt electable or was stringing people on too long.
But I dont remember anyone saying she she wanted girls to have abortions like they said about Perry, or that she was a stalking horse like they said about everyone from Bachmann to Paul, or that she would install a theocracy like they said about Santorum. She got off pretty light in the “personal attacks” arena.
You know that I speak my mind. What you don't know is that I have received well over a dozen messages in the past two years from freepers who said that they were afraid to post similar opinions for fear of being zotted.
That's the fact of it...many long-time freepers do not feel "free" to discuss. I believe that the pendulum will swing back but in the mean-time FR will lose good people.
Strange, you and I both signed up on September 15, 2001. Here a decade later you and I are left sharing the same feeling. Opinion is not welcome here anymore. I've received probably 50 personal emails because people were afraid of posting FReepmails, that's how frightened they were.
After seeing so many of their friends who were here from the start went through Clinton, Bush/Gore, 9/11, Gary Condit, Dan Rather, Kerry/Bush to this...
When I started seeing people actively shill for Obama after Tuesday, I warned that 95% of loyal donating FReepers would leave. I was only trashed by those same people trying to get me banned. Dirtbag the most hateful person towards Sarah Palin is allowed to roam free threatening everyone he comes across but folks who have been loyal to this website and our mission are shown the door, simply outrageous.
The sad fact as many of the folks at the top know David Axelrod has had moles here for years waiting for 2012 to shill for Barack Obama and like Grima Wormtongue in Lord of the Rings, whisper in the King's ear about anyone saying that they will vote AGAINST Obama!!! Oh and outrageous bigots are roaming free as well, I'm pretty sure Colofornian is responsible for atleast 500 - 1000 FReepers leaving as they don't like to be associated with bigots.
I know why they were banned and anyone can find out. Just read the past posting history.
YES! This is a Conservative site, established to air and vet Conservative ideas and ideals. How many times do we have to repeat that before it sinks into your puddin’ head?
We are not interested in discussing the joys of the collective, and how happy we (well, those who lick the boots to survive) will all be in our communist utopia courtesy of the leftists in chief that the Washington elite establishment cram down our throats.
There is plenty to talk about and argue about within the realm of Conservative thinking and what works best and what fails.
This isn’t going to be easy, and it isn’t going to be finished in my lifetime, but we must take back our country and once again become the shining beacon of light, good, and hope for the world. And we cannot accomplish that by continuing to vote for the lesser of two evils. Voting for any evil at all = stupid idea that got us into this fix in the first place.
My opinions, while conservative, are likely not welcome on the site, as they don't fit the strict mold required by the administrators.
I miss my old FR.
Yes, they do.
Is it okay to like Charles Krauthammer again. He’s made some marvelous essays against Obama lately.
I guess that makes him for Romney so we still gotta hate him, right?
But blatant support for 4 more years of BarryO is A-OK, evidently.
Yeah, and I remember a time when someone who openly supported a communist like Obama by trying to suppress the vote for the Republican on the ballot would have been banned for life. :(
“YES! This is a Conservative site, established to air and vet Conservative ideas and ideals.”
Awesome! So I won’t face ridicule or a summary zot for stating that I support Ron Paul and consider a Romney presidency preferable to a second term for the Marxist Kenyan. Right? Right?
“This isnt going to be easy, and it isnt going to be finished in my lifetime, but we must take back our country and once again become the shining beacon of light, good, and hope for the world.”
How on earth are you going to bring light to the world when your little fiefdom just keeps shrinking?
Usually during a ‘thon I don’t have time to read much of anything. LOL
wtc911 and I signed up on the same day coincidentally on September 15, 2001. And now we are trolls?
Wow, thank you for proving the points made on this thread.
Threats don't help fundraising...
LOTS! If I had to do it in percentages, I would say around 40%. But that depends on what your definition of a “troll” is.
What Jim Robinson chooses to do about the disgruntled Freepers who want to promote Romney for President is entirely up to him......but I will not support Romney nor his policies...nor will I buy into the “fear” being promoted here should Obama win another term as reason to change my opinion of Romney...and that which he most undoubtedly will do if he's elected.
I will be voting down ticket and do a write in. I am at Peace about doing just that. I refuse to support any socialist agenda....let alone the Globalist agenda Romney most assuredly will esculate.
You should not have to keep it to yourself when you don’t agree, unless you just hate conflict.
As long as you are not vicious or nasty, you should feel free to state your opinion.
“So I wont face ridicule or a summary zot for stating that I...consider a Romney presidency preferable to a second term for the Marxist Kenyan. Right? Right?”
Now you’re officially “campaigning for Romney”. /s
“This is a conservative, activist site that cannot support a socialist. It goes against everything Free Republic stands for.”
I think the concern is, that FR is supporting a socialist (Obama) by refusing to allow support for Romney.
You may not agree with the concern.
But, those who are supporting Romney because they think he is miles ahead of Obama are indeed getting the bum’s rush.
One woman on here used say, with great glee, that Texans and southerners were all in-bred, drug their knuckles, and worse
So did some others, particularly one closet liberal, named Non-Sequitur. He did it on FR for 10 years. Finally he crossed the line when he went up against Jim by supporting the repeal of DADT and he got the zot.
“In the real world the most rabid here are a drop in an ocean. If they sit out the election because they do not find Romney palatable they simply wont count. Theirs was one vote among millions. The rest of the grown ups will pick up the fight against this dictator wanna-be Obama and remove the stain from this once great country.”
I hope you are right on that count.
Four more years of Barry and this site will no longer exist.
He’ll make sure of it, count on it.
I voted in a state where my vote doesn’t count for a candidate who will not get the nomination.
In November I will vote for the candidate who will not destroy this country with the single minded hatred evidenced in the past three years.
Let’s say that you are a terminal patient using a doctor who is slowly killing you and you have a chance to change to a doctor who can offer you a new treatment which may not be perfect, but gives you a chance to live.
Do you continue with Dr. Death or try another,last, treatment?
That’s the choice you have in November.
Look...this election is already a done deal...I would think the Primary would have revealed as much...I will vote just the same because men and woman died so that I might do so.
The media will do as they are told by their stock holders...I have no control over that and neither does anyone else. Romney knew what he would be getting into and is well prepared for the fight with Obama. They both have had years to prepare and knew this would be how it would play out.
The show will go on, with us as the spectators, but if any think their vote is going to move the decided outcome then they are not seeing the reality that our voting system has been hyjacked and they are running with it.
Yep, my grudging acceptance of the depressing choice before me surely equates to wearing a Romney sign on a street corner while carrying a bullhorn. Ah well, what are ya gonna do.
Is is still OK to say that?
Ah come on, that looks nothing like me! I don’t wear glasses.
I was called every name in the sun for criticizing FReepers saying vote for Obama over Romney! Odd their posts disappeared but their accounts exist.
And many people who are in the know acknowledge there are democrat operatives working here.
This isn't about Mitt Romney. I never donated or voted for him. This is about intimidation and threats that go unpunished, which have literally scared people from posting and they've left.
John McCain was bad, but then we had the Tea Party and 2010 and this site was thriving, why? People weren't zotted for voting for McCain over Obama even though we all despised McCain.
I assume I'll be the next head on the chopping block, but I've been called every name under the sun including a democrat, a libertarian, a communist and I signed up 4 days after 9/11... Was there at a Free Republic Support our Troops event in 2003 that drew 5000 patriots to downtown Chicago making Occupy Wall Street look like a picnic.
Now people feel like they are living in the 3rd Episode of Star Wars...
You may be feared here but on conservative forums outside of FR, you are loathed and mocked.
Shame on you! If you make a comment like that, you should back it up with links!
And were now over THIRTY-ONE percent!!
We are the resistance!!
