Prayers up.

FR is funded solely by contributions made by the liberty loving patriots who love and use it.

We are beholden to no political party.

No advertisers, no outsiders, no sugar daddies, no corporate string pullers.

Definitely no government subsidies or tax breaks. No 501c or other IRS non-profit status.

This means no commercial ads. No annoying pop-ups. No ad tracking. No mail campaigns. No spam. No third-parties -- not even the IRS -- trying to control what we do or say.

We are self-funded, fiercely independent and enjoy our freedom to speak plainly in the support of God, family, country, liberty!!

But we cannot exist without you.

Every donation counts no matter how big or small. If you can donate $5, $10, $20, $100 or more, it would be greatly appreciated.

Your loyal support makes Free Republic possible and your continuing participation makes FR the number one pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-small government, pro-defense, pro-America conservative forum on the Net!!

And we're going to need FR now more than ever to combat the current crop of Marxists and progressives who have infested our government and public institutions and who are dead set on destroying the final remnants of our cherished constitution and our precious God-given liberty!!

Or by mail to: Free Republic, LLC - PO Box 9771 - Fresno, CA 93794

Make it a Monthly if you can. We have some very generous FReeper sponsors kicking in an extra ten bucks for every New Monthly signed up. And we have signed up 3 new monthly donors so far this quarter!!

Or send in a hundred dollars or more per quarter and join I_be_tc's growing list of 300 Club patriots. I_be_tc sends in $100 per quarter and challenges 300 others to do the same. If we could get 300 FReepers to send in $100 per quarter, these FReepathons would complete much faster. And we have received 170 donations of $100 or more so far this quarter!!

Thank you very much and God bless you.

There seems to be some who post 10 to 20 articles each day TO GET NOTICED. Do any of them contribute?
I bet contributions would increase if a posting of “To save our costs, this site will shut down 2 days a week”. OR NOT!

I didn't write the FR software -- all honor and glory to JohnRob for that. But I have been thinking about whether it would be possible to ...

There are some users who abuse this site, posting many threads daily but never contributing to the ensuing conversation. I don't know if they contribute monetarily, of course. But it's clear they're only here for the clicks to their own sites.

Would it be possible to collect thread data in such a way that a user who posts threads pointing to a blog, etc. and doesn't comment on their own thread, could be "throttled", like they can't post more than one such thread per day, and more than that get rejected until they make a donation to FR?

I suspect that this could generate some additional donations; or if it didn't, then at least there would be a few less clickbait blogpimp threads taking up bandwidth.

I know, software feature ideas are a dime a dozen. I'd offer to help write the code, although I'm mainly a C, Bash, and HTML guy, not Perl or Python or whatever FR is written in.

Just thinking out loud. I'm monthly for a small amount, and the freeloaders and blogpimps sometimes get to me.

Thanks Jim and John and Chris, for the best forum website in the world. Thank you for all your hard work, Merry Christmas and God Bless you all!

hi Mr. Robinson. i was trying to contribute tonight, and it’s giving me a card declined error. i was looking at the address and the one field with country says ‘california’ and then ‘non-us.’ when i try to switch it it says ‘us’ but then doesn’t give me a state. i’ll try it again tommorrow. maybe it’s a browser glitch. mine is pretty old.

Hi Chris! Is Jim OK? He hasn’t posted in a while and I just want to check.

I hope and pray you’re *all* doing well.

Please pray for me to stop the coughing and be cured since I now have COVID. On the rapid test at first the LPN said I only had a cold, but the next day all the covid crap was outside my door.

So be warned that the next COVID appears to be a cold with a runny nose and a sweaty night.

Salvation
