I agree. Not to kiss up to the owner of this site, but FR is one of the very few sites where you will get truthful news and generally some good conservative posts/comments to further assist.
There is a popular gun forum that also has great info regarding news/current affairs but seems to have a little too many statists and social liberals for my liking. Between FR and the gun site, I can get all the current news I need without the BS. Have not watched Fox more than a dozen times in the last 4 years.
I have a news pool I use.
For Conservative discussion there’s no place better than FreeRepublic
For breaking news - Drudge, Breitbart
For jokes - Moonbattery, MOTUS, and Twitchy
For the truth on Islam - BarenakedIslam, GatesOfVienna, VladTepesBlog, and of course, TundraTabloids
