As my FReeper homepage makes clear I am an American.

I picked the name "Berlin_Freeper" to be honest about my living overseas status.

Donations are in line with Free REPUBLIC. You have the right to donate or not to donate. A subscription fee would be a mandatory taxation without representation.

I think a better idea would be to sell stock in Free Republic and make it part of the capitalist system.

I think that the freedom to see and join in the discussion is one of the reasons for success. A lot of people found the site and glomped on during the 2000 election fiasco. How many of those would have paid to join in? How many good contributors would we have missed out on.

Even though I think a subscription fee is wrong, I would likely pay it if that is what Jim decided had to be done. And then I would worry about the exclusivity stifling the debate.

Following your logic, I'd have to have many monikers: Argentine Freeper, Brasilian Freeper, Belgian Freeper, German Freeper, Aussie Freeper, and (drum roll please), American Freeper!

As the mighty and wise, John Wayne once said, 'Dont't let the bastards get you down'...........That said, your idea is a bad one. But I in no way question you becasue of your screen name and neither should anyone else.

Hate to break the news but that makes you a foreigner.
