Then your views are ancient, and oppressive and you need to step into the modern world. It is funny sometimes because a lot of times these same people seem to be supportive of governments in places like Palestine.
It really boggles the mind...
The bashing will always be there, but am looking forward to some straight talk, that is REPUBLICAN, born and bred!
Just as my Christianity, "No Way I am not ashamed".
Looking forward to topics and discussions as well a candiates views.
Happy Holidays! Blessings~

I am actively participating in another place as a Christian conservative.
We get attacked and insulted regularly.
If I see this site actively participating, I will give as much time as I can here along with my other activities.
Things are coming to crunch time for our party.
got out of a lot of other liberal groups because I got
tired of getting shot at by people who simply had a
difference of opinion from mine. If it's tolerance you
want, then it's going to have to work both ways!
I will do what I can to respond but I am not riddled with tons of free time.
I do think it is time to pool some efforts here for the GOP.
I will give what I can by way of participation.
I have not been able to be in here near as much as I'd like to, and I see there are some new members who deserve to be welcomed warmly! SO,
I had started to work full time so I found a great co-host, and then she started to work full time as well..... and there you go, we don't mean to neglect you!
We definately have many more important things to do than sending virtual flowers to each other... so..... I have began another new thread to discuss ideas on the new presidential election.... look out for this one!
Oh, by the way, if anyone has read my profile, you'd know that mt idol and role model is Conservative writer, Michelle Malkin. I've recently started a Yahoo group about her. If anyone here is intersted, the URL is http://groups.yahoo.com/group/michelle_malkin
Conservatives are most
definitely the minority here. We are also treated as such for the most part. It
is almost funny when you watch some groups that are predominantly liberal,
censor and block us from their groups. They say they want freedom of speech,
they say they are against suppressing a minority, yet a lot of us watched them
systematically try to shut any conservative view out from this site.
They only wanted to see like minded opinions and news. And they called us fascists LOL. It was almost comical.
I also saw some conservatives on this site who would do the same thing. I believe conservatism is small government and big on individual freedoms. Nothing shows this more than when a group controlled by conservatives here let's people say whatever they wish without censor.
So, you want opinions on how to run this group, let anyone join, and don't delete squat. If you get caught up in a mistake in one of your posts and someone points it out, own up to it, don't delete them. That is cowardly. Sam H. used to do it all the time in his ROD group. That is the quickest way to lose all your credibility around here.
Everyone is going to be wrong sometime, and if they say they are not, then you know they are full of it. It seems a lot of people try to get out their frustrations on conservatives around here. This is the avenue to act tough, and get the anger out. I just let them. I am not angry at them for being who they are, but they are angry at people they decide to label as a "Bush Lover."
Advertise the group, let everyone in, don't delete anything except posts that violate the CoC. And most importantly, don't delete a post for something that you practice as well, like small name calling, or a little bit of poking and prodding.
It's common sense...

Thank you for this group. I hope to see lots of activity.
I take it that you were invited by Lena, whom I trust to make good decisions.
I look forward to having some interesting discussions with you!
Contrary to what some might say, we do not kick anyone out because they have a different opinion than ours.
We do get upset at and tired of those who keep being insulting and rude in their posts.
I honestly feel we can respect everyone as individuals and have debates without the personal assaults.
You sound as if you feel the same way!
Thank you very much for the invite Lena. Others may not wish for me here as I am for the outright impeachment of Bush. At the same time as another gal said I do not vote Dem. or Repub. -it depends on the candidate. I will not get rude or do what we all witnessed before when it got out of hand. I believe you know this of me Lena.
Yet if an independ. voter is not welcome here along with the above then let me know. In our Impeachment group, I allow anyone in. The more with any and all opinions are welcome. It's best to put it all out on the table from all angles.
Thanks. Robin W
I can be such a moroon!!!!!!
Cynthia! Welcome! Val has done an excellent job with this group and its members are the best!!! All of 'em!
All of which I am very grateful for.
With you guys in here, we couldn't help but have a perfect group!
We would welcome any of your friends you feel a desire to invite in to join, and encourage all members to particiate in our conversations, as well!
Hello Anton! I am so happy you found us. Even with the 5000+ members, we are are still the minority on this very liberal website... Please feel welcome to stimulate discussion and let's rock and roll and gear up for the 08 elections.
I have a meeting to go to right now, but I'll be back!
Cheryl and Val!!!
Yes, there are a lot of members and I feel most of them like to just read along and keep track of things quietly.
Can't say I blame them as far as the repurcussions end up going for many of us verbal and outgoing Republicans!
I am upset at Arnold, as well, Lena!
He needed to really step up to base many times and just wimped out!
Not like our Terminator, there is it????
Well I am a "Red State'r" trapped in a "Blue county" (and state for that matter)
Lena, I am in Michigan right now. For the reps, I am leaning Republican, but I don't think I can bring myself to vote for the Republican gubernatorial candidate. I don't care much for the incumbent, either. It is a tough choice.
As far as the Sunnis and Shiites, I would love to be optimistic, and say that they will find peace, but I am realistic, too. I mean, look at the latest of the violence over there. 91 dead that we know about. This isn't the US "fault" really, it is a matter of them not willing to come to terms with each other and accept each others' right to exist.
I could not believe it so I joined it. LOL Where is everyone?
Cheryl! Good to see you!!! What state are you in? It does not matter political lean here to be able to debate or discuss politics so don't worry about that. Val is an excellent host and in many cases reminds me of Jeffrey.
I am still studying mine LOL. Right now I am pisssed off at Arnold...
The Sunni and Shi'i I don't think will ever have peace. Personally, I will be glad for them to get their country back under their own sovereignty so we can get militarily out of there... I would like to see more progress with Saddam's trial as well. It is taking too long and how many of the judges who are hearing his trial have been killed already? I would hate to see him escape...
Hi, Lena, thanks for the invitation.
I am not technically a Republican, nor am I affiliated with any political party, but I have voted Republican in the past, and will do so again in this upcoming election (the Congressman who represents our area is very good, has been in the House since 1986, and is a Republican).
As far as getting the war under control, I hope so, though sectarian violence between Sunnis and Shiites is spiking for some reason. This needs to be addressed immediately.
Hi Eddie! So glad to see you here! I hope that things are well for you in Iraq. I would just like to tell you thank you for all that you do. You are the best! It would be great to hear your voice on the upcoming elections and what kind of President you think the American people should elect especially with all that is going on in the Middle East and the world...
Where did you do your boot camp? Oceanside or Parris? I am just curious because my son is currently a DI @ Parris Island. He did his boot at Oceanside in 92. He has a year and a half left of this current MOS and then he is deployable again. I sure hope that we can get this war under control and get you all home before long.
Hi all and thanks for the invite.
My name is Cpl eddie of the U.S.M.C. and nice to meet you all. Take care and thanks again.
I would prefer not to have to delete anything!
People who decide to post something can be responsible enough, I think, to think about what they are saying and how and why.
It can and should be fun, stimulating, educational and interesting to have debates and discussions.
It should not be a barrage of insulting and bashing and name calling rants thrown back and forth.
And, of course, I believe all our wonderful members understand that.
Love to all!
i can understand how Mile feels, really!
All the garbage the liberals try to throw at us, instead of really having discussions and sharing thoughts, views, facts and debating like intelligent humans.
Most of their psyco-babble made no sense at all!
They were everywhere!
However, Mike, it would be nice to see a picture, a design, a pet's face or something besides the "infamous blue head" eh?!
It would be easier than having to re-duct tape all the time...
I remember this site!
I used to post here a long time ago...
This is the first I have had time to drop in and visit. I left some time ago due to abusive posts. I also dropped a couple of people off of my friends list because I was so tired of receiving terrible hate messages against our president. I had requested these 'friends' not to send me this 'stuff' because I am a Republican and support President Bush. Even if I had been a Democrat I think I would have voted for him. I am looking forward to reading more threads. Thank you for being here and setting ground rules.
This post did not contain the terrible abusive and nasty language as the one which I had to delete!
It will stay, however, are you interested in discussing different views and attempting to understand them, or just in putting us down and treating us as if we don't have our own very capable minds?
"Free Speech Zone"
What do you think of that?
Now we only have free speech in restricted "zones".
Amerika...was beautiful...before the terrorists took over the Whitehouse.
You won't like this so I fear it will be censored.
All dictators have to do this...
I love you anyway because you don't understand what you are doing.
May God forgive you as you press the "delete" button.
An American Citizen
This is great! I got out of the "REAL" Republican group.
Too much silliness. You never knew what side of the bed those two moderators were going to get up on.
We have a good Sam, guys, Please welcome him!
I haven't heard from him yet, but I already hope this is just the beginning of a new friendship!
It takes courage to stand up to these alleged liberals. You know who I am talking about, the crowd that criticises with no solutions. The side that claims free speech until you utter something they do not like then, they call you a neo-con, paleo-con, et ceterra.
I love the shock and awe campaign being done against PeTA right now. The christian, the NRA, and other lobbying groups. Now talk about whining. That crowd can whine louder than anyone. But they are at the root of the problem with the "alleged" liberal agenda.
The Hollywood crowd or malignant narcissist infamous group are prime examples. Look at Shaun Penn in New Orleans with his flat bottom boat. First, he puts the boat in without the plug. Then he restarts and drains the boat. Second, he has his media team in the boat for coverage. Third, when he finds someone to rescue, guess what? No room in the boat.
Me, me , now, now has to end and it is people with solutions that resolve problems. Not just those that have the inability to overcome adolescent egocentrism.
Thanks for OUR site and I will participate,
OK, OK, My Bad...
Howver, I have to honstly ask that you not take that suggestion seriously. It would be too flattering to them.
I said I would take everything into consideration, but I have to ask ...
Why copy what THEY put in their group?
Welcome back, I have not seen some of you for awhile!
Hey I really want to know how you want the rules in this group to go! I want real honest and intelligent discussions, however, we know we also need respect and civility! I want all to give their honored opinions, ok!?
(it does work...I gues I just had a *death8 episode...)
I just wanted to reiterate something which has caused me to be thrown out of the Republican Party (they are the "official site" you know)
YOU WOULD HAVE TO BE DEAF, DUMB, BL,IND AND STUPID TO NO NOTICE TO GROWTH IN THE US ECONOMY.
THE OPINIONS OF THOSE WHO ARE TOO DISADVANTAGED TO UNDERSTAND THE REALITIES OF THIS NATION'S ECONOMICS DOESN'T CHANGE THE REALITY OF THE SITUATION.
and since I am such a shyt disturber, you will have to throw me out of here now i guess....
I like the changes, and it is not bad what you had before, because we do know what went on, and you kept this group safe from total chaos!
This is not MY group, it's all of ours.
I want to know how you really feel about the rules.
Everyone who was here when thay were being hammered down knows all the hell we faced being the ONLY republican group at the time, in a predomininately Liberal site, so I hope you know why they got so strict.
However, after taking heat from dictators and oppressors, I have decided to re-consider what needs to be posted as the rules anbd guidelines here. It's not the same anymore, and most of the newer people have NO CLUE what went on.
So, Please net message me or put your suggestions in here as to what you feel should stay, needs changing or rephrasing and how you would like to see it done.
I will take all members opinions and suggestions into serious consideration.
