Average age / Age of individual FReepers
Freerepublic.com | 3/24/12 | Blue Highway

Posted on 03/24/2012 1:53:59 PM PDT by Blue Highway

Hey all just wanted to start a thread to get some perspective on the ages of us here. I know we are a diverse group, but just wonder if the majority is 40 and up and wondering if there is a growing younger crowd signing up here. If it's ok to post this here maybe we can start a FReeper log of:

Name - Age - Sex

I'd understand if people might not want to post this info so if it is a good idea feel free to post.

TMI.

Sounds like an experiment in phishing to me.

I'm curious to see who complies.

glad to see some young FReepers. Never too young to be a conservative in my book. The sooner the better.

Bobbisox (that should be your first clue to my age) which is 62, obviously a Mama Grizzly, and a proud member of FreeRepublis since 98, when I stood on a corner with a group of Freepers in front of Mary Bono’s office to challenge her to vote for impeachment of Clinton.

Howdy to all of you and may God bless each and every one of you. I now live in a small town of 500 in the middle of nowhere Kansas, where you can watch your dog run away for two weeks. If it were not for FreeRepublic, I would have gone crazy (or crazier) years ago.

no, but I was aware that it might be a concern that’s why I wasn;t sure if it was ok to post it. I do see a median age of mid / late 40s and up. Avg age is probably 50+ just going by this thread so far. Male to female ratio might be 3.5:1 by guestimation.

I mean just in this thread but I know there are lots of FReepers who almost never post. I’m right here at the computer all day working at my own speed so I know who the regulars are as opposed to the occasional posters.

The thing is that, if you've been here long enough (and you have), you notice the patterns.

Early Freepers (1998-2000) passing away, and obits with many grandchildren. Many early Freepers were seniors.

Over time, the average age came down, but it's probably still higher than most other sites.

The focus on conservatism draws an older crowd. The high standards of online debate at this site have a natural attrition against the younger generation.

It depends upon the suffering of the young.

There are 4 points in the definitions for change.

The 3rd states that change will only occur when the level of pain and suffering is known is equal to or greater than the pain and suffering of the unknown.

So, when the propaganda and actions of the left creates an untenable climate for the young the unknown becomes an option for continued life. (Of course, there is much more to be stated on this topic).

So, those in the quest come here to explore the alternative to what they are bombarded with in school, culture, and the enveloping MSM humanistic environment.

Conservatism requires thinking, liberalism only requires emotion.

The liberal elites who think are only “conserving” power for themselves thru subordinates who have no clue.

(this is probably more than you were commenting upon — LOL)

I’ll be 73 come May 22nd. VietVet, USN retired. College grad (SIU), avid shooter and all around good guy. Although I’m getting lazy.

BTW, I was with the Freeper who lost all his guns when the boat turned over. I shouldn’t have let him persuade me to bring my guns along. What a pity!

I’m a 6 years old kitty born in the Republic of Panama.

My adopted brother, Chipi, is going to run for U.S. president. He is also Panamanian born.

I will be his VP. I am black and will get the black vote as well as the female vote for him.

We both speak Meow and understand Spanish and English.
