    I find it ironic that some very vocal people here always get their panties in a wad because I won't support a liberal like Romney. I think sometimes a few of you are more beholden to being "Republicans", than "Conservatives".

    Then we have what happened over at FP yesterday afternooon where they started blocking Romney trolls because they weren't conservative enough. Now I don't think they should have been blocked...but at least someone is sticking to the principles of small government and calling the douches out.


    Free Republic founder Jim Robinson has a message for supporters of Mitt Romney: go away.

    In an email to POLITICO this afternoon, Robinson admitted that the site routinely blocks Romney supporters from posting -- and offered no apologies for the practice:

    Free Republic is a pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-small government, pro-constitution, pro-liberty site.

    Governor Romney is none of the above. His record is that of an abortionist, gay rights pushing, gun grabbing, global warming advocating, big government, mandate loving, constitution trampling, flip-flopping liberal progressive with no core values.

    That and the fact that he is the chief architect and advocate for ObamaCare disqualifies him for any consideration whatsoever on Free Republic as a potential nominee for the presidency.

    Now if DU would ban Obama supporters, then DU and FR could wither and die. There will be no funeral as no mourners could be found.

    DU would ban Hillary supporters long before they'd ban Obama supporters. They are not true liberals because they are no longer capable of independent thought.


    So who is JimRob supporting for President, if not Romney?

    There's several things people confuse in this country

    1. "Americans" with "US Federal Government".
    2. "Republicans" with "Conservative"
    3. "Democrats" with "Liberal Socialists"

    sometimes and most often entirely different things.

    Obama has been as big a dissapointment to some diehard Libs as Romney is to many Conservatives.

    Do you ever get tired of sounding like a broken record?
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Romney really hasn't had the opportunity to be a disappointment (and probably won't) to Conservatives.

    The Liberals (real ones, not the imaginary ones) are appalled by the president's actions with regards to his use of drones, continued surveillance state, corporate subservience, abandonment of a robust public education system, and onandonandon .....

    The issue is as you say; a Liberal may be a Democrat but a Democrat is not necessarily a Liberal. Never mind the continued idiocy over the word Socialist.

    Please go waste your vote and shut the #$%# up. I am tired of hearing your self righteousness. Your actions will help usher in another obama term and that will make you happy. Just dont be hurt and or surprised when no one takes you seriously when you complain about obama.

    I keep saying this about Obamacare. Obamacare is a payout to insurance companies -- it's corporate protectionism. If Obama was genuinely a socialist, we'd have universal healthcare in some flavor or another (such as Canada, UK, Norway, Sweden, etc, etc). In my mind, Universal Healthcare would be considerably preferable to Obamacare... because the act of government taxing you for a service happens all the time, and what people disagree on is whether its the proper role of government to provide you with this service or that service. Obamacare isn't a service. It's a law forcing you to enter a private contract, and buy a service from a specific set of private providers. This is completely unprecedented. The closest thing to it is car insurance, but you can get out of it by not owning a car (plus, this happens at the state level). Nobody can get out of Obamacare.

    It's not the self righteousness that bothers me. It's that he seems like a smart guy, but he's continually so wrong on this topic, and no matter how we try to enlighten him he just puts that wall up and blocks it out.

    JimRob is a hypocrite. I suppose that he'll be much happier with a Bronco Bama second term.
