"I had not been all that politically active prior to President Clinton's election," Robinson recalls. "Yes, I complained about government and politics just like everyone else but politics was not particularly high on my list of priorities until Slick came along."
Robinson saw that the Clintons had brought a new and dangerous level of corruption to American politics. He could no longer remain aloof. "I knew that the newspapers and news media were lying and I knew that government had been encroaching on our individual rights and that our politicians were as corrupt as the day is long. I also knew that nothing would be done about it unless we the people somehow joined together to exercise our political free-speech rights."

I heard someone say something similar just this past weekend; however, they were referring to our soldiers. Ordinary Americans acting in extraordinary ways - it truly gave me chills. An incredible statement and one certainly applicable to Jim Robinson.
He wasn't called that, but the first Web Log was Jerry Pournelle's. Still one of the best for thoughtful commentary, although outdated format.
Great stuff. Thanks again Jim....from "the community!"
It always helps to keep the pressure on the left and stay in their faces.
They are so used to having their positions go unchallenged and simply accepted by an ever willing media that they actually wilt in the face of reasoned challenge.
Thats why they abandon argument and resort to insults, name calling and smears.
[Unfortunately, too many believe that it is acceptable to do this.]
My thoughts exactly. Hillary's dossiers explains a lot of the thundering silence I've noticed on the part of many Republican politicians.
It will be interesting to watch her run for president. It's going to bring a lot of things to a head.
BTTT for Americas sake Thanks Jim Rob

This is my Military/Veteran's Affairs ping list. FReep mail me if you want ON/OFF the list.
Jim - Slick Willie was a turning point for me, also. And thank God "you/Free Republic" was there for me. You make your 'freeper family' proud!
Awesome post, SFC MAC.
Thank you Jim Robinson.
I already have FR in my (yet-to-be accepted) history of journalism. But it's only a matter of time. I've never had a book not reach publication.
It gives me chills, too; but that's really what this country is all about. Astonishing, amazing and as everyday ordinary in the US as apple pie.
Great article on JR and FR!
Very nice interview. Great stuff!

WND article does not need to be excerpted. The poster was just to lazy to post the whole article
Fantastic to be part of such a magnificant group.
