What Makes a FReeper a FReeper?
FR | 8-21-07 | Bob J

Posted on 08/21/2007 9:43:30 AM PDT by Bob J

I often wondered what exactly makes a FReeper a FReeper? Is it the simple act of reading articles on FR? Do you have to post articles or replies? To call yourself a FReeper do you need to engage in effective activism like writing letters to politicians, getting out in the street to carry signs, or, is being a FReeper an attitude. If so, what attitude is that?

Knock yourself out.

A Freeper must have a sense of humor.

There is a big difference between a big “FR” FReeper and a freeper..................

Only one qualification to be a freeper - an instinctive, almost genetic response to make fun of Hillary’s cankles.

IMHO a Freeper is a person who READS a lot, and reads & follows the law and expects it to be enforced to the letter of the law. They will stand up for “Truth, Justice and the American way” We want low taxes, safe neighborhoods [and will defend them if needed.

a) give a sheckel to the site

b) Agree with Pissant

A good FReeper understands there are no limitations when defending the Constitution, advancing conservatism and promoting conservative candidates. All the other stuff is window dressing. And a good FReeper understands the enemy of conservatism is liberalism.

Liberals profess to love their country (in their own way), doesn’t make them a FReeper.

“Love of country” is subjective.

I see that someone already put in “use of snappy keywords” in the keywords. So I’m stuck with pointing others to similar articles in the same vein.

>>>>What makes a conservative a conservztive?

I'd say a good start is knowing right from wrong and a willingness to put it all on the line for what you believe in. Values, beliefs, principles and convictions. Stand up, speak out. Exercise your Constitutional rights as a American. And don't let the liberals get you down.

A FReeper must have a sense of humor, true, but it must be based in truth and logic. Otherwise, we are no different than DU. We think. They emote.........

Okay. IMO a “freeper” is somebody who stays informed by reading Free Republic threads, including the original article plus informed replies which debunk, confirm, or otherwise “unspin” the article.

Everything else takes care of itself.
