Maybe we disagree and that is okay. But this is not a breathless obituary. I am sure FR is not going anywhere anytime soon. It will continue to exist in some form. However, the wounds are deep and the scars will be permanent in that so many long-time posters are now gone. Posters with sign-up dates of 1998, even 1997, have been culled from the herd. Some have been among the most insightful posters FR ever had and perhaps ever will.
In my view, the most harmful participants are those who gang up and encircle a person, drive them to the ground and then claim they failed the purity test of the moment. All while professing to speak on behalf of the owner.
This nails it. We lost some terrific folks who made this board a much better place. I am very disappointed, but not surprised, that Romney is the presumptive nominee. Most of those who voluntarily left or were banned when everyone was angry felt the same way.
Jim - emotion aside, my wife said I was miserable for weeks when Romney seemed inevitable, you must answer this question to lay down the rules once and for all.
Do you truly believe in your heart that Mitt Romney will be as destructive and dangerous to this nation as Barack Obama?
I believe for many of us that is the question that needs to be answered and I know it will be a difficult question for you to answer.
I am going to go out and work on the garden because I believe my family will need it regardless of who POTUS is. Like someone said earlier, one of two unpalatable choices might give my orchard a little more time to become productive!
I will not give my consent to an abortionist/socialist. Period. Do not ask me to do that. It will not happen!!
We are the resistance!!
