I remember a few years ago someone posted instructions on how to tell what your member number is. Do you remember?

I remember being on another forum and one of the regular posters popping in and talking about some place named Free Republic that had just went on line the day before. So I checked it out, saw all the anti-Clinton stuff and thought ‘awesome’.

Can’t believe it’s been 15 years.

I have to thank FR, Drudge, that woman, Miss Lewinsky, Bill Blythe, Hillary! the VRWC, Arthur “Wildfire!” March and so many others for making this site the best on the web.

Here’s to the next 15 years!

Saw Ash over in the Fox Opinion comment area.

BTW, compared to you, I am such a n00b.

Haha, good times. We could always count on ash being an ash-hole. Fun times watching Don Morgan dismantling him non-stop.

It has been a great 15 years and I appreciate you more than you'll ever know. I found FR right around the first part of 1997 and I believe my first screen name was member #60 (it was Di Zadroga then).

Then something happened and many of us lost our original sign-up date and member number. What really matters, however, is that we are still here raising hell. Cheers!

Fondest memory: the site crashed due to heavy traffic the weekend Drudge broke the Lewinsky story.

The Sore / Loserman wars.

I was there in Washington on Oct 31, 1998. I was carrying the Massachusetts flag (you can see it in back of picture). Good memories. Can’t believe it’s been 15 years.

Thanks, Kristinn!

I can’t even think of a day without Free Rebublic! It is part of my daily routine. What ever did I do before FR entered my life? No other site can compare with what Jim Robinson did with his idea of a conservative web gathering place to discuss issues.

Thank you! And God bless you, JimRob!

Does anyone have more pictures from our DC gig to Impeach Clinton? Was that a great party or what? Coulter. Lucianne Goldberg. Connie Hair (Clinton is a Liar). Drudge. I remember we were all at the Happy Hour at the hotel. Jim Rob. Sam Adams. And so many more I cannot even now remember.
