Response to Bonobo (Reply #127)

Sat Feb 11, 2012, 10:35 AM

165. I used to have a link to that thread in my profile.


http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=364x2705446

Since I have used the same screen name on all political forums, I knew that people would find my posts on that site, so I posted that link in the name of transparency. I don't list the link any longer. It's been a very long time since 2006, and it's not really relevant any longer. Yes, I posted at Free Republic for four years. Mostly, I posted pro-science and anti-bigotry posts. Immediately after I left, following the posting of that particular post as a GBCW post, I posted at a few other political forums, and one forum that supported science and evolution, despite most of its members being conservatives.

In 2008, I stopped all attempts to influence conservatives to think more clearly. At that point, I joined DU, because it actually was about what I was about. I stopped all efforts to communicate with conservatives. That was always a lost cause. These days, and for some time, the only political forum I post on is DU. I'm not trying to convince conservatives of anything any longer.

So, from time to time, someone brings up the fact that I posted on FR as if it were something new and shocking. It's not. It's been over five years since I posted on that site, and my reasons for posting on that site were to attempt to convince the members there that they were wrong. All of my posts there are visible, still, for anyone who wants to search for them. They need to be read in context, not as individual posts, to see what I was doing there. That seems like a waste of time to me. Since I joined DU in 2008, I've posted thousands of posts here. They represent my point of view quite clearly.

I've always been a Democrat. I've never voted for a Republican in my life. My political position is left of center. My philosophy is far left of center, but I'm a pragmatic kind of guy - one who believes that movement should be toward the left but that it is impossible in this country to make a sudden leap to the left. So, I'm an Obama supporter and an advocate of electing Democrats over Republicans every time you vote, even if a Democrat who can win may not be as progressive as you might like. The Republican will almost certainly be more conservative. Politics is movement and in this country movement is gradual.

So, yes, I did post at Free Republic several years ago. I do not post there now. I have not posted there for over five years. I gave up trying to change minds there.

As many times as are necessary, I'll explain this.
