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.

My brother is developmentally delayed.
Your picture of a child with Downs syndrome is despicable.
Please, someone- remove the picture from post #187 from this thread.
It is downright nasty of you to use that picture.

You actually said something not asinine.

You should pay more attention.

I will not vote for an abortionist/homosexualist/statist for president. And I will not put up a yard sign for him at my home or on my website. That’s just the way it is and no one should be shocked. RINOs be damned. We are the resistance!!

Rebellion is here!!

If not us, who? If not now, when?

I should have rephrased it as the thugs, as you have been cool in posts and mail.

But do you see all these people speaking up? You know my opinion of Romney. I haven't kept it a secret that he is a dirtbag you know that, you share my opinion.

What I find unacceptable is that people are afraid to post, afraid of being mocked. Sad they lost their FReeper friends who had supported maybe Perry who is a better choice than Romney, remember that? Even after the Heartless comment wouldn't you prefer Governor Perry? I would! Hell I'd take that drug addict Governor of New Mexico who ran over Romney.

I would never shill for Romney, but I will tell you how evil, insane and out of control Obama is. It doesn't matter if we have the SCOTUS, the House and Senate he'll just appoint more czars, more executive orders and if Scalia dies, good bye Constitution!!!

Now where in that statement did I say vote for Romney? People have been banned for saying the statement I've made above! If the many FReepers finally speaking out on this thread don't show you what the heck happened I don't know what will.

It’s the labeling of anyone who says “ABO” as “campaigning for Romney
BINGO!!!!!!!! However, if Romney becomes the nominee, what does FR do until Nov.?

Mao Tse Tung and Stalin would be less of a threat then Obama.

Well .. . an equal threat maybe.

Open post to Jim Robinson and Moderators,

I request to be immediately unsubscribed from Free Republic (or “zotted” or whatever you want to call it).

When I discovered Free Republic sometime back in 1999, it was a thoughtful place which included many knowledgeable people and even some political insiders. (Lucianne Goldberg was only one of several people whose real names, if known, would have been recognized by the informed public.)

Today, reasoned, mature opinion has largely been replaced by hot tempers, rude and crude insults, and even religious intolerance. What was once a forum for mutually-respectful differences of opinion has degenerated into a free-for-all of schoolyard bullies.

Free Republic is still one of the best news aggregators anywhere. However, it is usually a waste of time to read the comments.

It has been very sad to see this process accelerating over the past two years. I kept hoping that more reasonable heads would prevail and bring the content back to its former high level. Now it seems clear that a different mentality permeates the atmosphere.

Yes, ...(for those of you who are about to say it)... Yes, it *is* Jim Robinson’s site and, yes, he can run it any way he chooses. And yes, I realize that if I don’t like it, I can go somewhere else.

That’s exactly what I want to do, provided I can get unsubscribed and my account deleted.

Goodbye, Free Republic. It was nice to know you while it lasted.

(OK, let’s see if the slavering attack dogs will now begin to rip me to shreds.)

The child has Downs syndrome- and it was used in a negative way.
It appears that the picture was taken down- thank you.

Yes, we know you. I know you very well, I think. You are a trusted friend, so let me speak to you as openly and honestly as I can here on this thread. JoeProBono is also a good friend and a valued member of Jim’s FReepathon Team.

Many of the people you are referencing are not good loyal members. They do not support FR like you. Personally, I don’t give a rip about their “feelings”. Some of the others on this thread, are good loyal members and they’re still supporting FR but they’re not slamming Jim, and for me, that’s unforegiveable.

The ones yearning for the old days are talking about FR when RINOS were in power and disccussions were “oh so lovely and open, blaming Bush and trashing him.” I am being sarcastic and not painting an full picture of the times.

Please don’t surrender or take up for folks that aren’t worthy. You’re not in a swing state.

We’re all the better patriots for putting our energies into electing TEA Party patriots to the US Senate and House.

God bless you.

To: mojitojoe
has there ever been a case before where FR did not support the GOP candidate?

No, but we do have precendent. The GOP-E refused to back a lot of the Tea Party candidates who beat their preferred RINOs in the 2010 primaries - heck, they openly backstabbed them. That showed many folks that for the GOP-E, party unity only applies when the RINO wins.

“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.”

There may be more truth in your jest than you think.

I think you may be right, especially when it progresses from bog pimp ridicule to making fun of the grammar, spelling, etc. of other FReepers and reaming them out for posting a something that has already been posted.

Now they don’t even know who their FR friends are.

You reap what you sow. . . why would I give a donation to promote speech here that attacks the “wrong kind” of conservative? Not towing the FR line here means you’re not a REAL conservative. We have enough problems in this country without eating our own. So be it. FR was a good idea gone way wrong. Sad. But it’s validating to hear others who feel the same way.

To: trisham
but will write in Palin. Is that what you consider “not voting”?

Yes, that is effectively not voting. Sarah Palin is not running for President. She doesn't want your vote, casting a ballot for her is entirely useless, and she has already stated that she is ABO and will support the Republican nominee. Palin is almost certainly going to endorse and campaign for Willard. Palin will probably have a prominent slot at the convention in which she will mostly attack Obama but also champion Romney as our candidate. Will you still be writing her in once that reality sets in? Will that require us declare Sarah a RINO establishment sell-out? Come on, can we at least try to be serious and stop with the "I'm writing in Sarah Palin" nonsense.
