Skip to comments.WHERE WOULD YOU GET YOUR NEWS FROM IF FREEREPUBLIC WASN'T HERE? Thread 5
Posted on 09/18/2001 6:59:38 PM PDT by WIMom
It is not always easy or fun sitting at a computer for hours and hours monitoring these threads. Everyone person here is a VOLUNTEER. As a matter of fact, we pay to do this. We spend days and weeks helping to keep FreeRepublic running.
Ask yourself these questions:
Where is the first place I go to get my news?
Am I getting any benefit from FreeRepublic?
Am I learning from FreeRepublic?
FreeRepublic is not free. It costs Jim Robinson tens of thousands of dollars to keep this forum running. There are over 60,000 registered users on FreeRepublic and only 1,000 help keep this forum running regularly. Those who do not have the ability to donate money could help by stopping by and giving a bump. Those who who do have the means and have not contributed, you should be ashamed of yourselves. You are a FReeploader.
We do not want to see this forum dead, therefore, we are asking that you help keep FreeRepublic running.
If everyone who registered donated one measly dollar a month, we would never have to have a fundraiser again.

Absolutely pathetic! This data shows that too many Freepers are really socialists looking for a free lunch!
You posted, There are over 60,000 registered users on FreeRepublic and only 1,000 help keep this forum running regularly."
That means these 1,000 or 1.6% of FreeRepublic users are really conservatives. The rest must really be communists or socialists who want a free lunch at FreeRepublic!
I'm retired and on social security. FreeRepublic gets an automatic check each month after my Social Security Check is deposited. I started this last December after FreeRepublic helped to save this Republic from be Goronized after the election!
Each month, Check Free sends an automatic check to my mortgage company, my church, my grandkids' education funds, Free Republic and another brave one man web site!
If each free loader cancelled their liberal fish wrap and sent to Free Republic an automatic monthly check of one half of what they pay the left wing extremist fishwrap, Free Republic could expand and really drive left wing extremists really crazy!
The other way to do this is to cancel your expensive tv cable which probably does not carry Fox Network News. Then subscribe to one of the TV satellite services. Then send your monthly savings in an automatic check to Free Republic!
Of course the conservative way to do it is really very simple. Make a monthly pledge to Free Republic and set it up to be done on an automatic basis. Then move on to the rest of your life and do more good deeds!
Usually in any organization, 10 to 20 % of the people involve contribute 80% of the value received and do 80 to 90% of the work. The 1.6% of Freepers being regular contributors is a truly pathetic % for those 59,000 who call themselves conservatives and do not contribute on a regular basis! (I know that some Freepers give some rather large sums on a yearly basis, and this nagging is not intended for them!)
I wonder how many who are so proud of an early date of belonging to FreeRepublic are also proud regular donators?
I would like to see a symbol by our profiles noting that person is a regular giver/donator to Free Republic. That would tell me a lot about someone that I don't know. If they are not a regular donor, then their message will be filtered with, "Why Not!"!
Our church has installed a new organ, new pews and recently completed a $650,000 earthquake retro fit. There is a plaque with the significant givers for each project! As Senior Warden emeritus, I get a lot of complaints and suggestions from members. Before I act or do anything, I check to see if they are regular pledgers/donors and if they supported the church in its time of special needs! Guess which ones, I really listen to and get involved with? I would like to know which Freepers are regular or monthly supporters!
I will be increasing my monthly donation to FreeRepublic starting in October! That is my monthly tithe to be able to come here and really get the news! I know that many retired and limited income people can't donate on a regular basis, so my "grampa nagging here" is aimed at those who can and don't, and are really socialist freeloaders! Who want a lot for nothing!
Grampa off his soap box!
Thank you, Jim for your wonderful invention! Like all wonderful inventions there is a price tag unless you are a communist or a socialist!

There Porsche is yours for $12K...
That is just one reason why I donate, the other is because JimRob does not show bias against Christians. If that were to occur, I would be gone, but he is fair. I can bring God up in conversation, some may grip and argue, but they can't delete it. I love that...Thus I donate...
Badjoe reports five more donations just in for a total of $200!!!
THANK YOU FREEPERS!!!!
Until we send in our BIG guns: WIMom and 2MCBM. They're our secret weapons.
On another note, Badjoe reports another two donations in for a total of $200!!
Can you believe the Freepers tonight? THANK YOU EVERYONE!
