    Like to encourage you to abandon FARCEBOOK

    Those who know me on Facebook and some here understand I am dedicated to bringing down the progressive left agenda of no guns, limited freedom, higher taxes and socialized medicine. To that end I used facebook and accumulated 4700 friends that shared a lot of my attitude. Given that level of sharing and them sharing and those people sharing, a lot got passed around but Fb has started censoring anything conservative in nature. In the past 2 weeks 8 of my friends were banned for 30-60 days for posting anti leftist, anti antifa and anti progressive, and in one case for calling someone a dumbass. I on the other hand did not get any warning, no 30 days ban for me, they shut my account down permenantly. While I have some sour grapes going on about it due in part to losing 15 years of pictures,videos and contacts, I also knew it was time to find another platform. I tried Mewe, Parlour, twitter but none of them seem to fit. I was about to give up when I heard about USA.LIFE. For FB users its a no brainer and is a very close replication of the FB platform so the learning curve is short.

    Everyday I hear about more groups like OFF, Patriot Prayer and other conservative or gun groups being shut down by the Zuckerfucker yet Antifa still has their pages up. Zuckershit also sells all your conversations to the highest bidder which is why you might have a private message with a friend about yoyo's and magically you get yoyo ads for the next 2 weeks in every on-line source you use. Its time to move on to a social media group that will never censor. While I like Gunsnet, the reach is for like minded limited audience gun people. I have no financial interest in usa.life should you wonder.

    So, I started another fb page under a fake name and encouraging all my friends and whoever I can to quit funding a leftist markist privacy peddler and get some of your privacy back in your everyday communication with friends and family. Happy trails and count me as a friend there. https://usa.life/

    I will take a look, but the good thing about FB is that I can put out information people are not getting elsewhere, or is there but is trying to be hidden. I don't need to convince people who think like me that my opinions are sound, it is the "moderates" who need to be reminded that conservatives are not hateful, violent people, but liberals and progressives who have those traits. It is ANTIFA who is using Fascist, Nazi, and Communist political tactics to stifle debate and scare people into submission to their goals and policies. It is hard, but leaving a place where moderates gather to speak to conservatives doesn't seem to bridge any gaps.

    Not to pat myself on the back but I was smart enough to never join ANY social media sites.

    Why on earth a person would want to put private information and their picture and pictures of family and friends online is a mystery to me.

    I have used it like many as a media outlet, sharing events, information and ideas. More and better quality news there than any news channels. News breaks there first in most cases. USA.life is looking pretty comparable for getting stories out yu wont see elsewhere.

    Hope it gets better. The interface looks great. But the audience is just so limited. With the overt emphasis on Christianity (which is a persecuted group right now), it won't attract the masses of the 'normies' (aka the unaffiliated folks who aren't paying attention). It's a good place to post stuff without the risk of being censored by a Silicon Valley Liberal in an office somewhere, but without the userbase, it won't really spread the news. They will have to attract far more people, including folks who aren't that dedicated on patriotic stuff or religious stuff, (but who aren't censoring douchbags) in order to create a large platform.

    But having a place to post what you want (even a small one that few folks visit) is better than nothing.

    in was in and out, in less than 1 week. friend requests from people i never heard of, no control of who sees what, looked like a recipe for trouble. and, that was before it became a political arm of the left. to hell with suckerberg.

    Same here.


    The more of us there are the harder it will be to silence us all....FB is very high traffic and not something we can afford to "abandon" to the libtards.

    The powers that be are clearly lefties and want us silenced or to leave altogether, thus the bans and suspensions and BS "fact" checkers, they know the power and reach of what they have and want us out.

    Don't give up just because they're making it hard for us to be heard....that's what they want.

    Yep. A 4G folder with a LL at home. The LL is how I get DSL from AT&T. The problem is that I'm so far out, I'm lucky to get 1mbps.
