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.
And still true today!
Why are you reposting this now? Did I miss a kerfuffle?
Here here !!!
Amen! Now as much as ever!
John Armor / Congressman Billybob

I’m with ya.
Jim Robinson for President!
....We are not connected to or funded by any political party...
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....We are conservative activists dedicated to defending our rights, defending our constitution, defending our republic and defending our traditional American way of life.
Yes, indeed.....that number “7” seems to be following me around. : )
What he said!!
“...we wholeheartedly support the Bush Doctrine of pre-emptive strikes on known terrorist states and organizations...”
Why then is the Bush doctrine so lopsidedly wrong on its recognition of Kosovo—a known terror state - and so bamboozled when it comes to border defense?
Well spoken. Our freedoms are not negotiable and this forum has helped to make that truth plainly visible for those who would propose otherwise.
Hey! Who’s the guy in the silk robe and women’s slippers? How did he get in here?
Nice to receive a reminder of just what draws me to Free Republic in the first place.
“We are conservative activists...”
SO glad I am a part of this group!
” We oppose all forms of liberalism, socialism,...”
Does that mean Free Republic opposes John McCain?
And I can only add thank God for Jim Robinson and his vision to have this place online to gather together and join with others that feel the same way as Jim Robinson feels and believes. I thank God every day for this place.
Like ‘goodness and mercy’ follows you!
In spite of me, lol. Praise God for that. : )
From a lurking sometimes posting foreign resident. My tip of the hat, and a pleasant day to you. I know other people in countries other than the USA that follow your quips.
Well said. Well composed.
Does FR collect a licensing fee for the use of its logo/name, or receive a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the FReeper Stuff advertised on the FR Home Page?
Again, just curious based on the statement in italics above.
What did Michelle Barrack have to say about this statement?
Thank you for giving us a forum so that we may exercise our God given rights as American CITIZENS!
Hey, not a bad idea!
Excellent reference for the next time some potty-mouthed lieberal troll gets their account suspended.
(Sometimes they get me so wound up, I've had to have a post removed too!)
What he said.
Sounds right to me.
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
We would be fortunate to have such a candidate, but the first time he called someone in the opposition an asswipe, the talking heads would explode! < /bug zapper thread reference >
Please consider running for President of the United States in 2012.
Howdy, fellow Texan. Just now clicked on your name and prowled around the linked site. Most interesting especially the thread about the Twin Sisters. Great gramps Bostick manned the cannon at the Battle of Bexar.
Just a little off topic and a funny tidbit...
Fred Thompson played the role of “Jim Robinson” in the HBO Movie “Barbarians at the Gate” (Jim Robinson was the head of American Express at the time of the RJR Nabisco LBO).
Right on! Right on!
GRRREAT post! Bump for a GRRREAT American! Thanks Jim.
I thought it was a great opus!
Well, thats the way a lot of folks around here think, act and behave.
...Jim, thanks once again for Free Republic.
