Finny, a thing is or it is not. Yoda had it right.
One can either push for conservatism or stand back and watch others push for liberalism. There is no way, shape form, explanation or excuse as to why a conservative forum allows open attacks on conservatives with proven to be bullshit rehash accusations. Nor why people like Rubio, Perry, end to our collective shame, ROMNEY AGAIN are pushed as an acceptable alternative to Democrats when they ARE democrats in every issue that matters.
So Either FR and the PTB are fighting FOR conservatism or they are standing back and ALLOWING liberalism. They should stand on one side ot the other. Not half ass things with this ‘hands off/let’em fight it out’ nonsense. EVEN RINO CENTRAL RED STATE took a stand for God sakes!
And if lightning strikes me for stating an obvious truth, so be it. It will not change the truth and I really don’t care anymore anyway.
I don't understand it either, except in that folks who you and I and many others understand are pushing for liberalism, have themselves convinced that because it's Republican, it's less liberal and voting for it is voting against the liberal, so it's the same as a push for conservatism. They are that fatalistic. "Lesser evil."
I used to be one! Didn't you?
And because it is, quite simply, Jim Robinson's football. And a fine, blessed football it is; I'm glad that it's here. I count my blessings.
I know many good people sincerely, mulishly, well-meaningly, cling to voting "against." I want them to wake up, so I speak out. They don't like it, but every once in awhile, the light bulb goes off ...
I have reason to believe most people here read, and comment rarely. You and I, bigmouth blowhards that we are, are always weighing in! I don't care about Sasparillas. I care about readers.
Whoever they are!
