Statement by the founder of Free Republic
Free Republic ^ | Jim Robinson

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.

Jim Robinson

AAAAAAA-MEN JimRob!!!

I first heard about Free Republic back in 1998 at the Houston Rally against Clintoon. I met my very best friend buffyt there. We still get together! I mostly lurk but find Free Republic the most beautiful conservative site out there.

God bless you JimRob!

"Free Republic is one of the easiest (the easiest?) sites to navigate and to post upon."

You are so right.

Were it not for Free Republic, I don't know why I'd be on the web much at all.

...Free Republic stands firmly on the side of right...

It may take longer to get "there", but No Left Turns Allowed.

I'm a proud FReeper. I don't know what I would have done without FR during the 2000 election.

I'm getting that same feeling. LOL Thanks for being here.

Beautifully and strongly stated. Thank you for this wonderful site. We KNOW we are networking, speaking to, learning from and being EFFECTIVE with our communications.

Keep up the good work Freepers.... we ARE being heard and there are people out there who don't like us because they are AFRAID of the truth and those who defend good ole American values.

Freepers are here to stay thanks to Jim and his brilliant site. Freepers do a lot of good and they offer a lot of prayer for a lot of people. It's a good, honest site and I for one am thankful to have it and personally I am PROUD TO BE A FREEPER!!!

God bless America, our President, Jim Robinson and all of our Freepers far and wide.

So true. The newscasters often start to mention "news" events which have been commented on and cross-referenced here on FR a day or a week before.

Then there's all the cutting edge pop culture items which get emailed around from family and friends, which are all old hat to FReepers already! :-)
