Using Free Republic To Voice Your Opinions But Not Helping to Pay the Bills
Editorial ^ | 8 Nov 11 | Xzins

Posted on 11/08/2011 5:17:20 PM PST by xzins

Gratitude is all about thanking someone who has done you a favor of some sort. Ingratitude is failing to recognize that favor.

All over freeperland thousands of opinions are registered daily from those who use these pages. Whether touting their favorite candidate or sharing a new idea, those on Free Republic get a chance to share their conservative opinions. (Other opinions are zapped since this is a conservative forum.)

A freepathon raises money to keep Free Republic running. Participating in the freepathon is as easy as clicking on the links provided for that purpose. Such as: Donate here

The best show of gratitude for the opportunity FR gives you to get your thoughts seen by thousands of people is to share the expense.

It's a little bit odd to brag about supporting Cain or Perry or Gingrich (or whomever) on a website you are not helping to support. Those folks at Free Republic must be really nice to allow you to do that. Show your gratitude by supporting FR today.

I donate but never get credit on the list of donors. I even put my name in the comment box this time. But I do donate.

Yup. Like I’ve said..there are “liberals” on the forum who won’t even fork over a measly 5 bux to FR every 3 months. Maybe it’s time to for a pay per post program and end this Freepathon stuff.

As was thinking that myself, I love FR, but it’s hatred of all things LDS seems a bit much. I would hesitate to send money to people who hate Romney more than Obama. Romney is not my guy but he is miles ahead of Obama.

I used to donate as a monthly donor. Then I donated when I could. There is just too much nastiness and many who attempt to be the judge of what a conservative is and who they should support. Some cliques on FR have a full time jobs smearing candidates with repeated lies that have been proven to false. Piranha’s feeding on flesh comes to mind when I reflect on the behavior observed.

So I don’t donate much and I don’t say much anymore. I guess it balances out. I’ve paid my share to keep the lights on. The cliques can carry the torch.

Maybe if the Republic survives the elections, I’ll feel generous and start contributing again.

At least Obama won’t corrupt the GOP any more than it already is. Romney has stated that his intention is to moderate the GOP.

They are both enemies of conservatives.

Romney and Obama. One of them has stated his goal is to moderate the GOP.... the other is Obama.

Romney vs Obama is a false choice.

Right. Think about how it would be not to have a forum like FR on which to voice our concerns, our dreams and to receive instant information! If FR went down, it would leave a huge hole in my life. We should donate even in between FReepathons. Thanks, Jim Robinson

It’s hard to believe that there’s that much diversity within conservatism, but there is. I get hot at times, too, but I always get to have my say.

And when the election finally gets here, this website is an awesome powerhouse of information. It always has been.

It is well worth preserving.

I feel bad enough for not being able to support Free Republic since I adore this place. I can’t even support Herman Cain.....

Telling me so makes me feel I should not be posting on this site. I do know that when I have the ability to share my wealth, this will be the first place that I share it. Unfortunately, I can’t even share the wealth with myself at the moment.

Maybe you should have worded that differently! I’m sure there are others like me that wish they had a dime to share!

"As was thinking that myself, I love FR, but it’s hatred of all things LDS"

If you love FR, as stated, then donate. There are but a few who attack the LDS. We may hate Romney, but it has nothing to do with his religion. Besides, if you have ever wondered into the Religion Forum, everyone is attacking everyone.....fair game. Some are just more mean than others.

"I would hesitate to send money to people who hate Romney more than Obama."

Romney is a snake oil salesman. At least barry puts forth his plan to destroy America, so we know EXACTLY what we are fighting against.

The RINO's and flip floppers are the enemy within. THEY are the most destructive.

Thank you Driftwood. I’ve been a monthly donor for ages. Comes right out of my bank via my debit card and I don’t even think about it. I gave up newspaper subscriptions and magazine subscriptions and don’t miss them. all the news worth knowing is here.

So you think we FReepers should support a man with similar views to Obama who also wants to get rid of conservative thought within the GOP?

Romney v Obama is a false choice. They are on the same side.

If Obama is not a better choice and if Romney is not a better choice, then there either is a better choice or there is not a better choice.

"your answer is that Oboma is a better choice."

No, my answer is Herman Cain, with Newt as VP. If mittens is handed over the nomination with kid gloves, then this country needs to go to hell and fight it's way back to it's origins.

No, you are not a traitor to republicans. Many republicans are moderates and liberals.

Your choice, however, is not a conservative choice, since Romney is not a conservative.

The republican party has members who are every bit as liberal as democrats with the exception that they like balanced budgets.

Wanting to defeat Obama has nothing to do with Romney being a liberal, a moderate, or a conservative.

Given his public record, how would you peg him: a liberal republican, a moderate republican, or a conservative republican?

Who here is supporting Obama. Name names.

Goreknowshowtocheat: - I would hesitate to send money to people who hate Romney more than Obama.

If you two think this is the case and you are hesitant to support F.R. because of it, why are you even here if you don't like the way J.R. runs things? Go start your own Republican web site, because this isn't one. If it were I wouldn't be here, much less send my money in support. This is a conservative web site and thank God for it.

I won't vote for a republican ticket even if Romney is in the V.P. slot, yet I don't hate him, I just want him to go far away.

Now why not find a pro mitt thread and quit talking about how you have no intentions of donating if the rest of us won’t embrace a baby killing gun grabber?

Would you at least agree that Romney is not a conservative. That would whittle down the list a little.

I could vote for anybody now running for the republican nod except, Romney, Huntsman and Paul but Paul is a libertarian and god forbid, if he got the nom, I might even get convinced to vote for him over Obama.

I'm for Herman Cain but could easily vote for others, such as Bachmann or Perry or Santorum (sp?)

I would say he used to be a lib republican and now he’s a moderate maybe luke warm conservative but I do think it has a lot to do with defeating Oboma how can it not if he were to win the nomination?
