Skip to comments.5% continues to support 100% of FR

The sad truth remains that 5% of FReepers support 100% of FR. Can you imagine what it would be like if we had 10% support? These things would wrap up in days, not months.
When I joined FR ten years ago, it was not uncommon to git 'er done in 7-10 days. It was less expensive 10 years ago, but, it really shouldn't take two months.
Not everybody can donate. I get that. But, I'm certain that we have some among the 95% that are FReeploading. Harsh words, but I know it's true.
Imagine no FR. No way to get the REAL news that affects us all. No pool of talent to ferret out the real truth. No ability to call BS when we see it.
The list goes on.
We need your help. We need new donors. We need new blood.
If you've never donated, give it a whirl. If you donate once in a while, try monthly donations. It's really painless.
Imagine a Freepathon that lasts days, not months.
it’s like who pays most US taxes... yes the rich do get socked
.............though I have donated a couple times, I confess I am a Freeploader.
I will send in some bucks tonight.
I have always wondered though why we just don’t have a subscription price that you have to pay each month, or quarterly or annually or you get cut off. No doubt there is a good reason why things are not set up that way but if there is I don’t know it.
Kind of like America
“I will send in some bucks tonight.”
I always notice when I see a real nasty poster
South bashers and race baiters are not donators
You know why.....they dont support us ideologically or financially
Anti freepers...just here to point fingers
Such is the internet I guess
Bump...from a monthly donor.
Give it a try.
Anyone can 20 bucks a quarter
If they can’t they shouldn’t be posting
They should be working
Just tightwads or lazy
Embrace free market capitalism - sell ad space!!!
Thank you for your monthly donations!
It truly would be wonderful if the other 95% could give at least $5 a month. TRULY WONDERFUL!! You know, Jim could relax a bit and devote more effort on assisting all of us in our goal of maintaining freedom.
Come on, 95 percenters!! Join the gang!
Just wanted to say I stayed out of the bars last night and sent in an extra $20. If I can do it, anyone can! :)
That is exactly the reason why I donate. This site is worth every penny.
Several years ago I dropped my subscription to the local football digest (newspaper); $50.00 twice a year... That now goes to Free Republic.
How many of you that freeload check FR at least twice a day...
JOIN THE GAME...
Yep. There is no other place like this on the web.
No there isn’t. Not even close.
I come here first, each and every day. After that, less reliable news sources.
I bet if FR management got rid of obnoxious morons like humblegunner it’s fund-raising drive would be wrapped up by now.
Oops...Can I say that here?
You bet I can!
Frankly, I think the attacks on fellow freepers for supporting “other” conservatives deters them from donating...relegates them to silence and closed wallets and prevents a real dialogue among patriots — particularly from Texas where oil royalties and “help wanted” signs are making us rich. I’m a monthly donor, but I know I’ve withheld funding in the past because a handful of loudmouths on the site got too mean and unreasonable and literally targeted and bullied me. Really poisoned the environment. Lots of people share/shared my opinion on this. My skin has thickened substantially, but I know many people love and need the site and would donate but feel they are second-class citizens due to Bill Ayers type tactics by a few. Just my input. Still love the site. America needs it. Thank you.
You did it! THANK YOU! :-)
I don’t think this would have happened in the old days of FR...people were eager, jumping over each other figuratively to contribute to this great forum....
Unfortunately the economy has hurt some FReepers. We have lost some faithful givers and newer posters aren’t taking up the slack. It’s a combination of circumstances.
BUT WHERE THE HELL ELSE CAN YOU GET THE DIRECT NEWS UNFILTERED, DISCUSSED BY SO MANY WITH KNOWLEDGE?...
does anybody remember when we had the space shuttle blowup?.....freepers were on that before anything hit the ground...
being a freeper is a priviledge...
I have been a monthly donor for years. When I received a layoff notice late last year, I reluctantly stopped my monthly donations. I then realized that I still had a roof over my head. I still had food on the table. But I felt so guilty not supporting FreeRepublic. It was not long at all before I resumed my monthly donations.
Please, support FreeRepublic!
Don’t be a FreepLoader!
Right on. Gotta support it. $20/month isn’t even noticed by most here.
That is true!
Thank you for your sacrifice.
I’ll include you in my bedtime prayers to find employment.
Another thing that goes away if FR does...Prayer Warriors!
Spent a decade as a grateful lurker, then became a member. Another decade before I felt brave enough to post.
And then I became convicted that I was taking, but not giving, to one of the most important websites in the world. I happily repented and have become a monthly supporter.
Please consider doing the same - even if it’s a small amount. It quickly adds up.
Thank you Jim for your hard work, and your son’s too.
9/11 was the same. The first plane hit and I signed on FR.
It may never fully recover.
Actually we still have anti-FReepers on site whispering not to donate. Sad but some people simply are filled with hate.
Well done, Arlis!
I've made a solemn vow to send in an extra donation every time some crybaby smears Humblegunner's good name during a fund drive. There goes another $25.00 into tomorrow's mail.
p.s. ONCE per fund drive.
p.p.s. It's "its" not "it's".
Stop calling people freeloaders for viewing a website that’s wide open to the public. Do you pay to read every site you visit? FR should start selling ad space.
Just a reminder to my Quinn & Rose-buds. Help out if you can swing it. One time, or monthly - it’s all good.
Good for you!!!
Even $5 from the 95% could make a difference for this quarter. How about it? A day without FR is a day without sunshine (and of course pertinent information).
I used to have time to listen in, but a shift in my workload in the AM makes it most impossible.
Thanks for pinging your list.
Every donation counts!
Every donation is truly and greatly appreciated!
FR is OUR Home.
What would we do without Free Republic?
Actually, they were taken off the air last November. Rumor has it they will be back on the air after Labor Day on a different station. We’re all hoping and praying the rumors are true!
> Unfortunately the economy has hurt some FReepers. We have lost some faithful givers and newer posters arent taking up the slack. Its a combination of circumstances.
I’m one of the victims of Obama otherwise I’d be donating.
Indeed. Buuuuump for more donors!
