We don't sell products or services on FR. We don't sell advertising. We don't charge membership dues. We are not a 501c non profit and therefore are not subject to government regulation. We pay all applicable taxes on our income and are free to speak our mind. Our operating costs are funded solely by donations from our readers and participants and that's the way we'd like to keep it if we possibly can. We are beholden to no one but our like-minded, pro-life, small government, strong defense, conservative grassroots membership!!

The funds raised in these FReepathons go to pay our current quarter expenses. But we're also going to try to replace some of our older servers and failing equipment this year so we're going to add a little extra to our FReepathon goals. John is estimating ten to fifteen thousand to do this and I'd like to get it all in place and working before the election cycle is fully heated up, so we'll try to bring in a little extra now, if we can, and the rest next quarter.

No matter who gets the nomination or eventually wins the election, we're going to need FR more than ever to hold their feet to the fire!!

We need FR and FR needs you!!

Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God!!

We are the resistance!!

Please click the link above to pledge your support by secure server or mail checks to:

Free Republic, LLC - PO Box 9771 - Fresno, CA 93794

Thank you all very much!!

Prayers up for America!!

I particularly enjoy fractal geometry in nature. Can you tell what this example is?

What happened to the Freepathon progress bar on the main page? It's not there as of 12:42 CST. Also I don't see this thread in the "News/Activism" section of the sidebar.

...hoping to see yellow and 90%!

You are brave. If a giant sized something like that showed up in my yard, I'd be grabbing my car keys.

If it showed up at my front door...I'd be grabbing a Saiga 12, and Holy Water!....well, maybe a bic lighter, and a can of hairspray, instead of Holy Water..

Putting flame thrower on my wish list as I await the ginormous alien broccol overlords.

I hereby nominate myself as "Idiot of the Week" for not reading the prior messages in this thread, post #28 in particular. I just jumped to the last page and then jumped to a hasty conclusion.

My motion is so moved...seconded?
