FReepathon: Our new Donation System is Ready to Roll! -- Thread Four
Donate to Free Republic via our Secure Server ^ | Jim Robinson

Posted on 10/04/2002 6:44:43 PM PDT by Mo1

Welcome to the New Free Republic Donation System!

John has programmed a great new donation system for us. It can accept credit cards or PayPal donations and will eventually also accept electronic checks. We have installed a new secure server system and have contracted with Authorize.net to do the actual credit card processing, and, of course, PayPal will process the PayPal donations through their system.

I've changed the links on our front page to link to the new program:

Donate Here By Secure Server

If you have bookmarks to the old system, please update to the new. The old system will be discontinued.

Take a test drive through the new system if you haven't already, and notice that it has several new features and reports available, including scoreboard, current stats, our budget and a faq. It's live now, so if you enter a donation it's for real (and thank you very much if you do).

John will continue making enhancements to the new system as we go, but the basic program is ready to go, and is live, and on the air.

We've decided to roll out our 4th quarter fundraiser with the new system on a late Saturday afternoon, as Saturday's are slow days and we might as well be gentle while breaking in the new system.

Thank you John for the new system! Great work!

Thank you BadJoe, WillaJohns, WIMom and all of the dedicated hardworking volunteers on the fundraising team who have helped us so much with these FReepathons in the past.

And thank you all for your continuing efforts! Without your dedication and hard work, FR could not stay on the air.

And thank you FReepers! Without your continued participation and financial support there would be no Free Republic!

A note to current monthly donors: We will need you to re-enter your recurring monthly donation to the new system, but please do not do it yet. Joe just processed your September donations on the 20th of September. The new system processes your donation on the day it is entered, so please wait until later in October to start your monthly on the new system. Also, please let BadJoe know via FReepmail (and please include your real name so he can match it with your credit card info in his file) after you re-enter your monthly donation so he can take you off his list. At the end of October, he will email all of those on his list who have not contacted him to remind them of the new system. Thank you very much for your continued support.

A note to prospective new monthly donors: We have included a list of our fixed monthly expenses as well as an estimate of our non-recurring expenses on our budget page of the donation system. We've also included an estimate of our current recurring monthly donations from our monthly donors. If and when the total of the recurring monthly donations ever meets our monthly expenses, there will no longer be a need for these FReepathons. It can happen someday. Thank you for considering a regular monthly contribution.

Note to all: We are looking forward to an exciting and rewarding election cycle. I know that we are not all in full agreement on this, but I sincerely believe that we have an excellent opportunity with this election to set the liberals back many years. And I also believe that winning this election in a big way for the conservatives will be the spark that allows our fight to return the Constitution to its rightful place as the Supreme Law of the Land to really get off the ground. I sincerely believe this is essential in our fight to secure our Liberty!

We hold the White House and the House of Representatives. If we re-take the majority in the Senate, it will be one of the very rare times in our history that the conservatives have held the majority control in all departments.

I see this as a gift from God. A majority means that the conservatives will chair the various committees of Congress and can set the legislative agenda. And, perhaps more importantly, a majority in the Senate will make it much more likely that President Bush's appointments will be confirmed.

This means we will be able to start replacing some of the liberal judicial activists on the bench with conservatives (don't tell Daschle & Co. that) and perhaps we will finally have a real shot at actually overturning some of the liberal bunk that has been foisted on us over the last century or so. How about overturning Roe vs Wade? With the current mood of the populace and with a conservative Senate, I think it can be done!

Remember, the liberals have controlled all or most of our government for at least 80 of the last 100 years. No wonder we are in such a mess today. This is the best opportunity we've ever had to reverse it in a big way. Kick the liberals out! Take control of the Senate and replace the liberal judiciary. This alone will set liberalism back thirty to forty years!

We must not fail to take advantage of this opportunity. Daschle and Company sense their days are numbered and are in a panic. Now is the time to redouble our efforts and throw these bums out!

I expect the volume on Free Republic to pick-up substantially as we head into the final weeks and days of the campaign season. And I expect exciting things will be happening for for all of us!

Thank you all very much!

God bless you all and may God continue to bless America!

Any FReeper or Lurker who makes a regular monthly donation to Free Republic by credit card, check, or PayPal may add his/her screen name to this list by simply FReepmailing the message "I am a monthly donor" to me or just declaring themselves on the FReepathon thread.

This list is completely voluntary. No name is added without permission. The list is posted periodically during fundraisers on the FReepathon thread .

We want to see this list expand until we have thousands of FReepers and Lurkers to make certain that Free Republic, the best conservative website on the internet, will continue to be here and grow. Thank you all for your support!

Thanks Glock!

Massachusetts has moved up a spot to 16th since last time I looked! Not bad for a liberal panty-wearin' state!

And look at our "conservative" Northern neighbor. New Hampshire. Number 42 on the list? C'mon NH Freepers, a $21 donation will get you above Arkansas and Canada!
