Skip to comments.Why donate to Free Republic? How does Free Republic advance conservatism?

Maybe others can answer more concisely, but I believe we need a place where like-minded traditional conservatives can meet to discuss and advocate for our pro-life, pro-liberty, pro-constitution, pro-traditional American conservative values, principles and causes--without being hounded and attacked by leftists, "moderates" and other naysayers, doubters, doom & gloomers, malcontents or trolls who would either outright destroy our liberty and our way of life, surrender it, or otherwise nibble away at it in bits and bites.
Free Republic has been just that for fifteen years!!
We wholeheartedly and steadfastly believe in and defend our founding principles and our traditional American conservative way of life.
Our nation was founded on the principle that all men are created equal and endowed by GOD with unalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
And that government derives its just powers from the consent of the governed. And that our constitution was established to severely restrict and limit the government to ONLY those powers actually enumerated and delegated to it by the constitution and that all others are reserved to the states and the people.
The rights and powers of government are few and defined while the rights and powers of the people are many and granted by God. Government does not grant us our rights and cannot take them away.
We the people are the sovereigns and final arbiters.
When any government becomes destructive to the causes of liberty then it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it.
Our government without a doubt has overstepped its constitutional bounds and is becoming outright hostile to our liberty. This is tyranny.
Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God!
We must alter it by taming those who would be our masters. We must reestablish our constitutional limits on government and fully restore our god-given liberty.
This has been the mission of Free Republic since inception. We deliver tens of millions of pages of discussions by conservatives in support of our conservative values to millions of readers every month. We are a conduit of conservative thought from the people to the media, to the talkers, to the kingmakers, to the movers and shakers and to our government representatives. And to each other and to the other side. Free Republic is well read! According to Alexa and other rating organizations we're nearly in the top 1000 or so sites in America (1102 today). We are consistently in the top ten among conservative sites.
People read us. Our thoughts and discussions are often linked, quoted, referenced, mentioned or talked about in the media, blogs or talkshows. People come here for news, information and conservative perspective as posted by liberty-loving individuals like YOU and me.
Where else can you post your great freedom inspiring thoughts and see them reflected almost immediately on google and possibly talked about by Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin or written about by any number of news outlets or blogs?
You are a newsmaker and activist for your conservative causes. Your opinion counts and is noticed and is acted upon. Don't believe me? Ask the unimpeachable president Clinton. Ask Presidents Gore or Kerry. Ask top news anchor, Dan Rather!!
Click the link. The Republic you save may be your own.
I absolutely love Free Republic, for it is an invaluable resource for conservatives. However, and no disrepsect intended, why does it require the hundreds of thousands of dollars that are donated every year? I’ve helped run websites and I’m curious to what this money goes to.
I pass it to Boortz, Limbaugh and Hannity, and maybe it's coincidence but every so often something I've shared will almost immediately pop on on one of their programs. At least none of them have told me to stop sending stuff.
The liberals know we are here, and they hate us. To me that shows just how effective we are.
I don't want to be popular, I just want my grandson to live free. He is in the Florida Guard and deserves a much better Commander in Chief.
Click the donation link, then click on “Budget.”

So very true. I’ve noticed, and I’m certain others have noticed as well.
A lot of it goes to buying beer and pizza for ME.
And cigarettes. There's an allotment for ammunition used
at the range and an occasional trip to the Cafe East buffet.
Why do you ask?
Whether assisting in the impeachment of a U.S. president, or preventing the theft of a presidential election, this site has made history.
Not many (if any) web sites can say that.
Limited means these days Jim. But I’ll donate as much and as often as I can. Thanks for FR and for everything you do.
My tagline ( the same one I've had for years ) says why I come here, and the reason why I donate.
No other news forum could ever replace Free Republic!
I donate to FR because I believe in paying my own way. For the most part, I like it here and have for almost 8 years. I don’t care what you do with the money. Unlike the government, you don’t make me give.
It also makes me smile that it gets certain anti-freepers panties in a bunch. They are such children, almost liberal like.
Step up, Freepers! I gave twice this quarter to make up for all the comotion of our current circumstances as conservatives.
Thanks for the service you provide to the conservative movement.
Incredible that I have been a FReeper for 14 years and 18 days. Amazing how fast that went by. Great friends, great adventures.
I’m with you. Let me note that being 100% donation oriented takes the sponsor induced format out of the equation. This is Free Speech 101.
I just made my donation. Thanks for the reminder.
I’ll make more for beautiful ZOT’s or if the kitties can play with a Troll and have a good time for a while.
I'm not voting for the lesser of two evils - that only begets even more evil.
Salary to live on.
Hardware replacement and upgrades.
Backup services and hardware.
Trips on behalf of Conservatives to major candidates or leaders of causes we care about.
ETc, etc, etc....
