Congrads to the op as stated one of the best postes on here in a long time I fully agree with you. I am also probalby considered anti government as I am a stanch conservative. I wont be leaving this sight because of the libs unless I am booted off but then again I have been booted of better sights than this so no big deal.
Well, thank you. You know when a voice is shut down a thought is lost. We may not always agree with our fellow man but we may learn something from him. A thread about the "Government" shutting down RV parks needs to be heard and if we can't do that here then this site is useless and just a way to promote Good Sam.
This "Government" decision effects all of us and we should be upset by it. We should be able to speak our minds. Are we all to be sheepole and just follow the golden rule until the slaughter?
Are we all to be treated as just "Repair manuals" for new people coming here? Do we have nothing else to say or add?
All the stupid posts about nothing and the always same old, same old posts makes for a boring day. There are REAL issues that are affecting us now that we need to take a stance on so we can continue to live the way we want to. We worked hard for it, we fought for it and to now let it go would be a shame.
I'll be the Rand Paul that speaks out to all of you who know that things are not right. We are a community of RV'ers that have a common interest and we need to protect that interest. We pay our taxes, defended our nation and now we just want have what is rightfully ours.
We should be able to voice our opinions on this forum as well as other forums and make a difference.
Thank you all for the support and to those who oppose me, I hope you make it until the end....
First, I'd like to say thanks to all those who have helped me over the years and got me into RV'ing. When you first sign on you have a lot of questions that only experienced rv'ers can answer and most will help you out. That is a good thing.
After a few years it becomes old hat and you still help others but want a more diverse forum to discuss RV topics. I quit the IRV2 forum because the mods there think like children and think all the members are children and treat them that way. If someone posts a thread and someone else disagrees the thread is shut down because we can't have disagreements here...
We are all adults and we all know not everyone will agree with the OP in a thread. This can be a good thing because it brings out other ideas and thoughts and helps others make a decision on an issue.
3 topics this week were closed here because someone disagreed or mentioned the name "Government" on this site. They were the only 3 topics I found interesting and felt made the trip here worthwhile.
One was about the new budget and closing national parks. How can you have a discussion about it if you don't talk about the "Government"? We may not all agree what the "Government" does but closing the parks affects us all and as "adults" we should be able to discuss it but not here... Not anymore...
This site has gotten more and more like the "Government" and wants to keep us all in line. Homogenized, Pasteurized and numb. If all that is left is "HELP ME" topics then it is one boring site and not worth coming to.
I guess it will wind up with nothing but newbies that need advice but no experienced people to give it. I don't mind helping out but I'm not just a "repair" manual for newbies. I wanted a site that would be useful to newbies and experienced alike but that is not happening here. The new mods act like gsatopo and close all threads they "think" are not "Help me" threads or have the word "Government" in them or a hint of disagreement.
So, I guess this thread will be deleted or closed and it all will go on but not with me as a member. I've had enough....
