Come on, everyone! How long is this one going to take?



Our 4th Quarter FReepathon is now into its 56th day, which I think, is both a heartbreaking shame and also outrageous. Free Republic is the premier online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism on the whole on the Internet!

You all love Free Republic or you wouldn't be here. You all know that we hold FReepathons every quarter to finance Free Republic. What you might not know, or realize, is that our quarterly FReepathons raise the funds to finance that quarter's expenses - the current expenses, so it's hardly right to burden Jim, is it?

Ideally, FR needs every member and regular user to contribute to keep Free Republic up and running strong., but sadly, that's not the case. If it were, our FReepathon's would conclude in a matter of a few short weeks.

Time and time again, our loyal membership contributes several times, aside from their Monthly Donations, and other loyal members send checks and donate more than once.



Ask yourselves, can you forgo a pizza or a hamburger, fries and shake once a month to Donate Monthly or contribute $20 to FR now to help us get this done? $5.00 a Month makes you a hero here! Think what $10 and more makes you!





We have a New Monthly Donor Campaign wherein generous FReeper Sponsors have donated $10.00 for every New Monthly Donor or New Dollar-A-DAY Donor! Please consider signing up to donate monthly, if you possibly can. We're currently looking for New Monthly Donor #50!

We also have I_be_tc's "300 FReepers with $100 for FR Challenge" and it's still going strong!!

"FReepers are absolutely the greatest," just like Jim says, and you always come through, but it shouldn't always be the same loyal FReepers supporting Free Republic!



It's really time for new members and regular users to understand that Free Republic is here for all of us, and that all of us should want to pitch-in to keep the Premiere grassroots site on the whole of the Internet for God, Family, Country, Life & Liberty, TEA Party, Conservatives, independent and running strong!

Thanks very much everyone. May God bless and keep you all and everyone you love.

Remember, Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God, and We are the resistance!!

Now, will you all who haven't yet donated, please pitch-in to GET THIS ONE DONE?



Tomorrow will be FReepathon Day 57!!!

Freepers!
All contributions are for the current month's expenses.
It has been a long Thon and I know that with The Marxist's Economy, a lot of us are hurting.
Please think about how much more difficult it would be without Free Republic.

C’mon now, folks.
We're conservatives, we pay our own way.


Times are tough on a lot of us, but if you've got a job, really, $5 a month? You're going to miss that? How about turning off the lights when you leave the room? How about dropping the thermostat a degree while you're not at home? How about skipping that fancy pants coffee twice a month?

All we're asking for is $5 a month. Get out that wallet, input your Debit/Credit card #, set up a monthly and forget about it.

If this ham-n-egger can be a dollar a day guy, you can pony up $0.17 a day. Seventeen cents a day for all the time you spend on FR?

Cerainly, a bargain at twice the price, don't you agree?

You'll feel much better about your time on FR.




GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU.

YOU ROCK!

Fine. I think it’s stupid this thing has lasted so long.

I’ve contributed twice already but, in defense of other Freepers, I think we all spent our wallets on candidates we supported this year.

I know I blew through thousands. I got some good results for my money and I was rational in my giving.

It was to first, get the candidate I wanted, second, failing that get a majority of Republicans/Conservatives elected locally, State and nationally.

I didn’t expect Romney to win as there wasn’t any daylights difference between that putz and Obama on policy, making his candidacy pointless as it didn’t solve any problem.

In fact, his candidacy, like all top ticket candidacy pulled the down ticket candidates and the result was less voters. Hence, instead of getting a mathematical certainty increase in the Congress and the Senate, we got FK’d.

Bottom line and it’s Romney’s fault but, also the fault of those who said ABO. It’s a stupid strategy as people don’t do things only to avoid pain, they have to have an even greater “why” to do things and what the result will be.

Romney wasn’t a “why” and it’ll be better because?????

We know Barrack gets two black robes and most people didn’t even consider that.

So all that money went out of our wallets and the only reason this Freepathon is going slow is our tills are a bit light from this election cycle.

FUMR....Don’t you ever show your face on the political scene again. You’re not herpes but a cold sore nevertheless...

Oh, and I’m donating again to FR....

You can count on me anytime.

Luv to drive over there and bring you all some coffee and finally shake hands one day.

Maybe I’ll go to Midwesto and visit a friend and then drive over to you.

Remember: It’s a Great Life if You Don’t Weaken....
