Thanks. I am looking forward to participating. The Blue Ridge Forum got out of control quickly after it was formed by the demise of the Hendersonville and Spartanburg newspaper forums.

Yikes!

I'm not sure where you're coming from. Are you saying that the Republican Party should sacriffice it's core values to appeal to certain groups the way the Demonrats do?  Support ILLEGAL Invasion to supposedly get the Hispanic vote? Sacrifice the Christians and endorse Homosexual relationships and even redefining "Marriage" to include 2 men or 2 women?

BTW, Here's how to code a link properly:

No.  You attempted to cloak the implication that we're racist in your post.  We are smart enough to see through that.  Please have a real discussion.
Thank you.

I could care less about race.  Try again.

I have no idea what you are talking about......you say I implied you are racist....could you please quote here what you are referring to...I have no clue.

It isn't working, SJ.  Please cut it out, because we are above that.

That sir is a personal attack....are they allowed on here?....if so I gurantee you I could go toe to toe with you.

What? You can hurl insults on an internet forum? Wowee! You are a toughee. Calling you David Duke is not an insult. Calling you David Duke is calling you a racist.

It would be interesting to see your definition of racism....if you are courageous enough to attempt that.

Well you are one up on me....I don't have any pictures to answer your picture with.  heh heh


I suppose you are one of the moderate or pc republicans to be correct...and you have a huge problem with my pointing out that Republicans catering to liberals is not a good way to proceed if they wish to win the next election.

Or do you have a problem with my article reporting a particuarly horrendous minority crime in the Christmas Season?   

Other than that the only thing I can think of is that I might have humiliated you on some other board and you are stalking me over here.

Don't know to what post you are referring to but I think it is very likely the Republican Party will do exactly the things you mention...unless there is a huge rebellion....thus I think either the Republican Party will splinter or the more conservative elements will take control....it may take awhile for all this to come to a head....the sooner the better I say.

I'm asking if that's YOUR solution as to why the Republican lost. Are you saying, like so many who have blown thru here, is to go Demonrat Lite to gain voters?  I don't know how to make the question any simpler.

I copied and pasted an article which listed the authors.  I would have just posted the link but I posted a link earlier and it did not work.

Now you can accuse me of failing to post a link--- but claiming I posted other peoples work unatrributed is incorrect.....the authors of that article were listed....I went back and checked.

Beyond that I think it is quite obvious that there is a lot of hostility on here regarding my posts....from you, solar and boo boo.

Not sure if that is because of honest misunderstandings or there is something else at play here.

Anyhow being a new poster on here I not familiar with the history of what has transpired on here....maybe I have jumped into the middle of a bunch of 'frayed nerves'....I think for awhile I will cease from responding to anyone and just post things that cannot be considered controversial or taboo in anyway...I am not going to wast my time arguing with people that have some kind of secret agenda they are not willing to talk about honestly.

That's happened to me on another forum of liberals. I'm a little surprised to see it here. When I've done it, I thought it was obvious I was posting an article and commenting on that article.  The accusations began to fly that I was claiming I wrote it. In that case, they didn't want to deal with what I SAID, so any excuse to attack me. Two conservatives on that forum and a hoard of Libtards who can't debate ISSUES so they attacked me personally and relentlessly. "RACIST!" was the most common attack. It's why we hate Obama, you know.  :wink:
