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!!!

Thank you very much for the suggestion. If only we could!

Not every “moocher” has the means to donate. There is no way to tell them apart from the takers.

All donations are voluntary, and I read and posted here for years before donating.

We run our FReepathon ads and hope for the generosity of those who can afford it.

Why people vote Democrat by Lady Jag

 

When your family or friends cannot explain why they voted for a Democrat, give them this list.

1. I voted for a Democrat because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn’t.

2. I voted for a Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

3. I voted for a Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

4. I voted for a Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers, rapists, thugs, and thieves.

5. I voted for a Democrat because I believe that people who can’t tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will disappear in ten years because of Global Warming if I don’t start driving a Prius or a Chevy Volt.

6. I voted for a Democrat because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

7. I voted for a Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits.

8. I voted for a Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.

9. I voted for a Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution regularly to suit some fringe folks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

10. I voted for a Democrat because I think that it’s better to pay billions to people who hate us for their oil, but not drill for our own because it might upset some useless endangered beetle, gopher, or fish.

11. I voted for a Democrat because while we live in the greatest, most wonderful country in the world, I was promised “HOPE AND CHANGE.”

12. I voted for a Democrat because my head is so firmly buried in the sand that it’s unlikely that I’ll ever have another point of view.


Thanks, JoeProBono!

BUMPING .. the 'Thon and our dear home on the web and the greatest folks on earth!!!

Still reeling and ever so slowly coming back from likely clinical despondency, then "all body falling apart all at once" phase ... meds and doctor visits of the last couple of months. A true and completely total slide and bummer.

And .. we know He is in charge .. and this hurt and misery must be His will .. for now. So, we continue to pray and pray and trust .. and we go on, holding onto our righteous values and faith in God's plan.

BUT ..gratefully and blessedly .. I am so very uplifted from such a joyful family Thanksgiving and the unparallelled blessing of the news that my wonderful son and his beautiful wife are having a precious baby! I've been praying for them for over a year! I can't stop thinking baby thoughts .. endlessly .. gleefully. Praise Him so abundantly .. and His Blessed Mother .. thank you, Lord!


this would be a good time to help FR, click the chick ~~ thank you!

Thank you, thank you, thank you both .. SO much. Please. if you would, say a prayer for them and the precious darling ... they’ve had a bit of a struggle, and so they waited to tell us for a couple of months. Son made adorable Thanksgiving cards for me and his bro. Front: Happy Thanksgiving, with a pumpkin .. at the bottom: Don’t eat too much pumpkin pie. Then .. open it up and HUGE letters: GRANDMA and UNCLE with a baby sitting in a pumpkin!!!! JUST WOW!! I just sobbed. I’m over the moon and praying and praying!
