"do you think Free Republic will go away"

No. Have you donated to the Freepathon to make sure it won't?

Just like any other thing in life, FR will absolutely go away:

When JR and his team no longer want the headache,
When we stop supporting it,
or When free speach is outlawed.

till then, I wouldn’t be too concerned.

No, but it has changed in the 16+ years I have been on here. It wasn’t as contentious as it is now and was much more civil.

“Question? Do you think freerepublic will go away.”

When?
Maybe in the Year 2525.

Yes. Everything ‘goes away’.

I agree.

What was not tolerated back then is today accepted as normal discourse (insults, arguments, PROFANITY, etc).

Sad. . .

So was society in general. Sixteen years ago the republican party was not publicly at war with Conservatives and we had united in our opposition to the rapist and chief. The gop/e then hated us... but they never spoke of it beyond smoke filled backrooms in DC.

Possibly a liberal spy. Usually doesn’t take long to spot the noobs. The experienced ones just take a little longer but they’re eventually noticed.

True...10 yrs ago there was a LOT more posting a LOT more honest posting.

Now it is tempered.....always with a nod to the P.C.

I estimate 1/4th the number of posts....and very little shared personal experience.

Some of that is due to the growth of other sites of course.

But some is just trepidation .......as if it matters.

oh well

There are many new ideas on Free Republic. These FReeper ideas soon show up in the editorials of print media like WSJ and Washington Times. Good for them, and for us. Free Republic leads!

They are cash cowing this but haven’t done what it takes to grow it or even keep it alive long term.

Well it could use a face-lift and some vision

This could become a powerhouse - or it could have (it may be too late)

But JimRob is insistent on no advertising or “selling out to the man” (like some old hippie)There is not even a facebook 'like' button here. So instead of being a place where we can read and pass on info, we are at the end of the line. When we read somethign here and comment, we are only doing it among ourselves anymore.

Sorry JimRob- but you are missing (or may have missed) a huge opportunity here.

Look at idiot sites like Salon.Com and Huffington Post. They are making millions selling liberal idiocy. You should partner up with some CONSERVATIVES businessmen with internet brains and turn this from a chat site with aging membership to a force for helping fix this country by returning to old-fashioned values, common sense, and The Constitution. Get ahold of the Koch Brothers and see if they can point you to anyone. We are all not going to live forever here.

I get more traction these days commenting on Facebook with ‘likes’ than preaching to the choir here.

I think it is time for some MAJOR change here and re-thinking, before it is too late.

I notice much lower rate of new article postings, and find myself having to look many other places for news these days.

FR used to be my sole source of news and I always seemed to be ahead of everyone else in knowing what was going on. Not so much anymore.
