Posted on 03/22/2004 6:22:17 PM PST by Jim Robinson
I posted the following statement to our front page in response to the criticism I'm receiving lately as to not being fair and balanced and perceived mistreatment of trolls and assorted malcontents. Got news for all, I'm NOT fair and balanced. I'm biased toward God, country, family, liberty and freedom and against liberalism, socialism, anarchism, wackoism, global balonyism and any other form of tyranny. Hope this helps.
Statement by the founder of Free Republic:
In our continuing fight for freedom, for America and our constitution and against totalitarianism, socialism, tyranny, terrorism, etc., Free Republic stands firmly on the side of right, i.e., the conservative side. Believing that the best defense is a strong offense, we (myself and those whom I'm trying to attract to FR) support the strategy of taking the fight to the enemy as opposed to allowing the enemy the luxury of conducting their attacks on us at home on their terms and on their schedule.
Therefore, we wholeheartedly support the Bush Doctrine of pre-emptive strikes on known terrorist states and organizations that are believed to present a clear threat to our freedom or national security. We support our military, our troops and our Commander-in-Chief and we oppose turning control of our government back over to the liberals and socialists who favor appeasement, weakness, and subserviency. We do not believe in surrendering to the terrorists as France, Germany, Russia and Spain have done and as Kerry, Kennedy, Clinton and the Democrats, et al, are proposing.
As a conservative site, Free Republic is pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-Constitution, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-private property rights, pro-limited taxes, pro-capitalism, pro-national defense, pro-freedom, and-pro America. We oppose all forms of liberalism, socialism, fascism, pacifism, totalitarianism, anarchism, government enforced atheism, abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, racism, wacko environmentalism, judicial activism, etc. We also oppose the United Nations or any other world government body that may attempt to impose its will or rule over our sovereign nation and sovereign people. We believe in defending our borders, our constitution and our national sovereignty.
Free Republic is private property. It is not a government project, nor is it funded by government or taxpayer money. We are not a publicly owned entity nor are we an IRS tax-free non-profit organization. We pay all applicable taxes on our income. We are not connected to or funded by any political party, news agency, or any other entity. We sell no merchandise, product or service, and we offer no subscriptions or paid memberships. We accept no paid advertising or promotions. We are funded solely by donations (non tax deductible gifts) from our readers and participants.
We aggressively defend our God-given and first amendment guaranteed rights to free speech, free press, free religion, and freedom of association, as well as our constitutional right to control the use and content of our own personal private property. Despite the wailing of the liberal trolls and other doom & gloom naysayers, we feel no compelling need to allow them a platform to promote their repugnant and obnoxious propaganda from our forum. Free Republic is not a liberal debating society. We are conservative activists dedicated to defending our rights, defending our constitution, defending our republic and defending our traditional American way of life.
Our God-given liberty and freedoms are not negotiable.
May God bless and protect our men and women in uniform fighting for our freedom and may God continue to bless America.
Another BTTT for all the pro-homosexual agenda freaks who are crawling out of the woodwork right now.
And bump !! :^D

GOD BLESS YOU!
Mr. Jim Robinson!!!
Thank you for this timeless gift. You’re in my daily prayers. God bless you.
Bumping to the top as a reminder of what Free Republic is about.
Just read - Worthy Bump!

Good to finally speak with the Legend! :-) Really, you are “it” for blogs on the “Right” side of evil in this Republic, Sir!
May the Lord continue to bless you, your family, and our Nation.
And, BTW...this is my very FIRST POST! YAHOO!
Jim Soden :-)
It helps a lot and I”m happy to see it.
I also hope that constructive discussion and free speech with differing considerations of the facts are still part of the forum.
I see nothing I can’t subscribe to in that article. Your anger, malice, and mendacity perplex me.
How about the pro-God portion?
You seem to dislike Christians.
The data collection and storage capabilities of the Federal Government seems to know no bounds. Today's computer technology is able to keep building massive personal profiles on every person who is alive today, effectively making personal privacy a thing of the past. Super computer programs have the ability to sort through all of this data at light speed creating detailed histories on whomever they are targeting at the moment.
While I love participating in the daily debates, it appears that the discussions are becoming more inflammatory as we helplessly watch our personal freedoms disappear. One has to consider the government's ability to monitor individual entries on FR and the possibility they will be able to use them against contributors should Orwellian tyranny be further imposed on thoughts and statements judged to be non-PC in their efforts to silence dissent. It would be comforting to know if security procedures in place at FR are capable of preventing intrusions of this type now and going forth. Should we face a second round of Clinton insanity it is certain to be several magnitudes worse the the previous sitting. Thanks
