First of all, not a newb.. just a purge victim from the primaries.
JimRob posted almost a month ago about a so called truce between Romney supporters and the rest of the FReeper community. Since then, it appears the left has little job to do in driving a wedge into the right wing, we are doing it still ourselves.
Were is this truce? How come all I see on here is Alinsky tactics of divide and conquer? Today there was a post about Evil Mittie and him fundraising with morning after pill distributors. And the "true blue conservatives" pounce, little do they know that this pill manufacturer is one of the largest generic pill manufactuyrers in the world.. who produce all kind of medicine, even Augmentin, Azithromycin and Cipro, common anti-biotics..
This so called truce makes me sick. Can't wait to read the next half-baked anti-Romney article and the zealot FReepers who will eat up its every word because it furthers the narrative of Romney that THEY want him to fit into.
I'm not upset that people have beliefs that won't "allow" them to vote for Romney.. but what really irritates me is this active campaigning against people who would support Romney.. what game are you trying to pull? To deliver us into 4 more years of Obama servitude, for what purpose?? It strengthens conservatives? Talk about a phyyric victory. If you don't support Romney fine, but we are all anti-Obama here.. lets stay on focus.
What a tired argument. They know very well that most Freepers will probably vote for Mittens. They are upset that the website won’t officially endorse their liberal.
It’s a very one sided truce since the Romneybots won’t shaddup.
Not even on FR can I escape that damn fandom.
My Wife and I let our Girls watch it, (one of the few TV shows we let them watch) and for what it is, its a pretty good show.
Sadly in my travels across the internet to find pony related stuff for them, I have run across those terms.
I never thought it would make it's way into FR however. Some of those fans though, I don't know whether to Laugh or cry....
I’ve never heard of anyone on SS who DOES have health insurance.
It selects for Narcissists and Aristocrats
The Republic would be better replaced by a Meritocracy
So, just because a poster posted an article critical of Romney (and his lifelong love of abortion) that is suspicious of his views on pro-life... we are all terrible, horrible people?
Please tell me these TrueBlue sniffers aren’t serious??
LOL I’m whiggin out man
I also know former hardcore conservatives who voted for Clinton over George H W Bush because they believed George H W Bush really was going to stop Social Security. Clinton's tactic (as dishonest as it was) worked. That's not horsecrap, that's fact.
I also know that America voted for Obama's handouts above John McCain. That's not horsecrap either, that's fact.
And I also know that there is a tipping point in this society when the unemployment rates gets to a point where even jobless conservatives face depending on the government or splitting up the family... they quickly turn to government handouts and put self-interest and the children above politics. That's human nature. Survival.
If it comes to living in a car with your children or accepting a government hand-out there's a tipping point there where we will lose some conservatives to Obama (especially when the alternative is someone like Romney).
If the alternative were a Ronald Reagan then yes it may be horsecrap. But Mitt Romney is NO Ronald Reagan.
Mitt’s neo democrat party can use the slug or the jellyfish as a mascot.
Don’t forget defense, which includes strategic industries (given up to our enemies) and also certain land/sea gates (also given up to our enemies).
Yes, let’s just sweep those nasty little facts about Mittens under the carpet. Close your eyes, hold your nose, turn off your brain, and take up the GOP banner so we can welcome the next socialist into office!
Establishment talking points at their finest.
My girls watch it. As I typed that to you, my hubby said, "What he crap is a brony?"
According to the actions of the current and previous versions of Mitt Romney, his being the "other" choice could also be a symptom.
Unless the Mittster has something like "Paul's conversion" on some absolutely vital issues, I don't yet see how anything he'll do can save America from what's coming. It ain't about the money.
The symptoms and signs are everywhere, but unless we understand the problem, short of a divine miracle, it's unlikely we'll figure it out.
And there's not a lot left on the clock.
“Mitts neo democrat party can use the slug or the jellyfish as a mascot.”
Why not the Etch-a-Sketch?
My 75 year old mother is on SS and also has private health insurance. It was provided to her from her job. After she retired she had to pay for it on her own.
I know another woman also in the same situation. In her 70s and on SS but until recently she also paid for her own health insurance. Only thing is, this woman recently dropped her private insurance because she believes Obamacare will now take over. How many of those elderly voters are out there?
Yep. As far as I know, everyone who goes on SS cancels their health insurance the same day or very shortly after.
No, mitten’s neolib party’s mascot gets to be an animal Eagles scoop up and dis-embowel.
Weasel? Bichon Frise?
But some arn't so bad.....
If Romney’s opponent in 2012 is someone like Clinton running for his 2nd term, Romney would lose in a landslide. Clinton had perfected triangulation, said “era of big gov’t is over” etc etc.
Romney in 2012 has a chance ONLY BECAUSE Obama has such a disastrous record. I actually know republicans who voted for Obama in 2008 because they were tired of Bush, Iraq war etc and fell for Hope & Change. The same people unanimously will vote in 2012 AGAINST Obama. It does not matter to them who the GOP nominee is.
So I take it you ARE a Pegasister?
The lesser of two evils is still evil.
I agree. Free trade doesn’t work
You need to read post 46.
And your point is?
>>So I take it you ARE a Pegasister?<<
Sometimes I wish I was, but I’ve never seen an entire show. I just hear my girls laughing from the computer room.
And see the memes, of course!
>>Yep. As far as I know, everyone who goes on SS cancels their health insurance the same day or very shortly after.<<
Everyone I ever billed for doctor’s office visits had Medicare and a secondary insurance to cover the rest of the costs.
“Everything would be fine and dandy except that Romney isnt a conservative.”
Well, he’s certainly no place close to being the kind of conservative I’d like him to be. But, you know what, he IS THE KIND OF REPUBLICAN that will sign bills that a conservative House and a (hopefully if we all work hard leading up to this November) newly conservative Republican led Senate will be passing starting in 2013.
And Obama? If Obama somehow slips in IT WILL NOT MATTER IF WE TAKE THE SENATE. Obama would simply not sign any meaningful conservative legislation—he’d instead just obstruct and let the country continues its decline. That is his objective, you should have no doubt of that. Don’t let him divide us. I agree with the opening poster that we should, with all our hearts, support the truce between conservatives this election year. Our country depends upon it among other things.
I just hear my girls laughing from the computer room. And see the memes, of course! Well, This Song Always works.....
Well, This Song Always works.....
I am getting real tired of being told that I am supporting Obama by default if I don’t vote for Romney. I thought the truce was about not cajoling or attacking anyone over this issue any more.
The site will not endorse or campaign for Romney, the members can vote how they like, wasn’t that the idea?
The Rombots haven’t let up on their offensive tirades one bit.
Now we need to find that full episode.
Had to pull the girls away from their mangas to see it!
“Once we end all the Country Club RINOs, we should re-brand the GOP. Elephant out. The Eagle should be our new mascot.”
I LIKE your way of thinking. Of course if we actually did this the Dems & the mainstream media would have a major league hissy-fit. Wouldn’t that be a sight to behold?
“The Rombots havent let up on their offensive tirades one bit.”
It is like a gang initiation. A need to share the guilt.
Sad and repulsive at the same time.
You know, just between you and me....there is always this site to keep you updated.
Romney V Romney Dark
Which one will I choose ???
OOO which one is less repugnant...
Do you rememeber that eposode of The Odd Couple with the Pigeon sisters ???
Yeah the ABO are like that...
Somewhere that everyone agrees like the Senate or lately more and more the Congress.
high taxes and heavy handed regulations are what is sending “jobs” and investment overseas.
“but what really irritates me is this active campaigning against people who would support Romney”
Geanakos.Chris, do you think it is possible that despite the “campaigning” that you may think exists here on FR...in support of or against Romney, that people can and will make up their own minds?
I would hope that I would not be so gullible to be swayed by another person’s musings. ...These are opinions shared here by every day folks. Take what you like and leave the rest.
America has fallen far from our original agreement.
Once we stepped over the line, my guess is the symptoms just keep getting worse until we step back or we're done.
Apparently his point is that anything that paints Romney in a bad light needs to be deleted and banned. or something.
The same way leftists want taxpayers to fund abortion and Maplethorpe, so we are all guilty of their sins?
