The Natives are Restless! AND waking up!
To all my internet friends,
I’ve always said the republicans use the Christian right, just like the democrats use black Americans. No one has escaped the plantation or the slavemaster.
Speaking of the Christian right, a shining example is Ralph Reed, running for Lt. Governor. Fellow money laundering scammer of Norquist and Abramoff and Karl Rove. As slimey as they come. A blasphemy to Christianity.
We talk about Islam being hijacked by false prophets to control and conquer . The same thing has happened to American Christianity. Look at the Catholic Church. Mainstream Catholics don’t agree with their immigration stance. The Mormon hierarchy has even gotten in on the act, which is why Chris Cannon, open border traitor of Congress, keeps getting elected.
We’ve been had. Denying it won’t make it otherwise. I see so many of my old conservative, Christian friends just hiding out, afraid to say what they really see. Afraid to admit they’ve stuck by a guy that just doesn’t give a damn for any of them. Like battered wives too endoctrinated to see escape. I understand the feeling. I felt that way a couple years ago. Betrayal is a wound no one wants to acknowledge. But the alternative, if we remain in denial, is unthinkable.
Only time will tell if we Americans, as a society, are as gullible as the muslims that follow the jihad cry of their leaders.
I also see some old friends standing up and saying, ENOUGH! And I am grateful today for that.
Bye, bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy off the levy 'cause gas is too high.

There's a lot of hot air on these subjects. Unless the person actually works for a living and is affected by all this, they don't give damn. I've never seen so much disregard for the proverbial 'fellow man', as expressed at times on this forum.

C'mon now, Ron. Don't be so gloomy.
Being an economic serf in Dubya's compassionate corporate feudal system won't be so bad.
Besides, if you don't want to pay a toll to His Majesty's cronies, you'll always have the freedom to choose not to travel anywhere.
Just kick back and relax and enjoy the free prescription drugs he's gonna give you.
You're almost a senile citizen now anyway, aren't you?

Isn't it great? Free Trade, globalization, open borders! Now the USA can offer foreign investors what ALL foreign investors want - CHEAP 3rd word LABOR. That appears to be the grand plan! How do ya like it so far?
Some one will be along shorlty to tell you this is progress.
I didn’t pledge allegiance to the Clinton/Bush dynasty to turn this country into an international corporate bribeocracy.

This administration's starchamber tactics are getting old.

What does it take for some folks to connect the dots and realize these are national security threats?
Now it begs the question do those who seem unable to connect the dots...dots so easily assembled, do they have another agenda ...like the destruction of these United States.

Conservatives base their views....political and personal.....on facts, not emotions. They feel emotion, but do not base opinion on emotion.
Conservatives do not accuse others without facts to back up their accusations. They understand that doing so is to falsely accuse.
Conservatives do not accuse others based on their personal emotions, and do not accuse others based on hearsay or groupthink.
Conservatives are not afraid to defend their views, and do not run from a legitimate debate with another conservative.
Conservatives can debate their opinions based on a rational defense of those views and not just their feelings about those views.
These are facts about conservatives. These facts are what set us apart from liberals.

The bots are no different than the idiots who thought sticking a cigar in a fat intern was no big deal. They are too blind with party loyalty to see how foolish they look.
This same group was upset at our being upset over Meirs. They are upset that we cringe at the proposed shamnesty plan. Etc etc. They think prescription drug bill was a good thing. Etc Etc. It never ends.

rought to you by the Neo-cons: open bordering, foreign owning of ports, bloated budgeting, Roe v. Wade as settled law viewing, maxed out H1B visas issuing, religion of peace proclaiming, color-coding terror alerting ex-hippies, who went "conservative" in the 1980s and believe in NOTHING.
But I know, all we need to do to sic the Department of Homeland Security on this issue. They'll protect us.

I see the problem with the GOP and I'll sing it from the rooftop until the GOP "Gets it".
I sent a FLAME to Kenny Mehlman, Liddy Dole, Ricky Santorum today. These idiots are still beating the "The dem would be so much worse" drum....and thereby expect us to salivate like Pavlov's dogs...run to the polls and pull the "R" lever. Nuts to that.
The party "faithful" are so stupid that they don't realize that they're being manipulated....just as Pavlov trained his dogs. "The Dem would be so much worse" is the equivalent to the bell.
DING! WATCH THEM salivate....run to the poll and pull the "R" lever.....regardless of what the Republican party stands for, has done, or promises to do. Bull Ship. Game Over.

The Republican Party had better begin policing its ranks and steering right to avoid going over the cliff to oblivion. Enough of us are put off with the GOP's leftist trend and lack of allegiance to the sovereignty of the country (including all out-sourcing, WTO, NAFTA, and GAT) that who will remain to support it anyway? The RNC had better begin to financially support conservative candidates. If not -:o( .

Bill Clinton was President for eight years and somehow the Republic survived.
Ideology aside, the differences between the parties on a practical level are nil. No matter which party holds the reins of power, any attempts to address the basic problems of our nation will be ignored in favor of the usual logrolling, pork-barrel spending, and lobbyist vote-buying. If the Democrats take the House, the Senate, and the White House, abortion will be legal, income will be taxed, and the borders will be wide open. If the Republicans retain control of the House, the Senate, and the White House, abortion will still be legal, income will be still taxed, and the borders will be wide open.
The real problems of our nation are at the root level: borders and culture. Elections can't fix what's really wrong. Fundamental restoration of our civilization will be required -- and neither party is going to give us that. GOP or DNC? Meet the new boss -- same as the old boss.

A moderate is just a slightly less annoying liberal. Plenty of them here on Freerepublic. I've been trying to chase them out for years but it hasn't done much good. The republicans have continued moving further and further to the left. Maybe when they start moving to the Right again they'll get my vote.

We had to take up arms on the border in order to shame the president into talking out both sides of his mouth on the issue and now he's reverted to his old position - waffle waffle waffle.. Do we remember this term.. short memories?
He's shameless on that matter. He just can't seem to do anything but serve the corporate and business interests while screwing workers and undermining border security to do it.. Slap any amount of makeup on that pig, you can't make it a prom queen.
