Skip to comments.Why donate to Free Republic? How does Free Republic advance conservatism?

Maybe others can answer more concisely, but I believe we need a place where like-minded traditional conservatives can meet to discuss and advocate for our pro-life, pro-liberty, pro-constitution, pro-traditional American conservative values, principles and causes--without being hounded and attacked by leftists, "moderates" and other naysayers, doubters, doom & gloomers, malcontents or trolls who would either outright destroy our liberty and our way of life, surrender it, or otherwise nibble away at it in bits and bites.
Free Republic has been just that for fifteen years!!
We wholeheartedly and steadfastly believe in and defend our founding principles and our traditional American conservative way of life.
Our nation was founded on the principle that all men are created equal and endowed by GOD with unalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
And that government derives its just powers from the consent of the governed. And that our constitution was established to severely restrict and limit the government to ONLY those powers actually enumerated and delegated to it by the constitution and that all others are reserved to the states and the people.
The rights and powers of government are few and defined while the rights and powers of the people are many and granted by God. Government does not grant us our rights and cannot take them away.
We the people are the sovereigns and final arbiters.
When any government becomes destructive to the causes of liberty then it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it.
Our government without a doubt has overstepped its constitutional bounds and is becoming outright hostile to our liberty. This is tyranny.
Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God!
We must alter it by taming those who would be our masters. We must reestablish our constitutional limits on government and fully restore our god-given liberty.
This has been the mission of Free Republic since inception. We deliver tens of millions of pages of discussions by conservatives in support of our conservative values to millions of readers every month. We are a conduit of conservative thought from the people to the media, to the talkers, to the kingmakers, to the movers and shakers and to our government representatives. And to each other and to the other side. Free Republic is well read! According to Alexa and other rating organizations we're nearly in the top 1000 or so sites in America (1102 today). We are consistently in the top ten among conservative sites.
People read us. Our thoughts and discussions are often linked, quoted, referenced, mentioned or talked about in the media, blogs or talkshows. People come here for news, information and conservative perspective as posted by liberty-loving individuals like YOU and me.
Where else can you post your great freedom inspiring thoughts and see them reflected almost immediately on google and possibly talked about by Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin or written about by any number of news outlets or blogs?
You are a newsmaker and activist for your conservative causes. Your opinion counts and is noticed and is acted upon. Don't believe me? Ask the unimpeachable president Clinton. Ask Presidents Gore or Kerry. Ask top news anchor, Dan Rather!!
Click the link. The Republic you save may be your own.
When I get home I will donate my usual.
Rush limbaugh has quoted On the air my exact words, in all my creative weirdness, on FR three times. I think that means I get a smoking jacket.
Believe me, we are show prep.
Monthly Donor Bump! I was out of town for the weekend, so am late to the thread. Payday is Friday - I'll send a little extra this weekend.
"What would you do Without FR?????
Suppose one day you tried to log on and Free Republic wasnt there? Where would you get your up to the minute news? How about the live threads as things are happening?
How would you know about the latest Demorat scams, anti-second amendment schemes and all the other liberal, anti-American ploys that are tried every single day?
Insight into world affairs, brilliant wit, sharp retorts, instant information gratification are a few of the things that make FR so vital.
How would you keep on top of things without FR?
How would you know who to contact to complain about the lying politicians, Media Bias, Hollyweirds latest mouth off, sponsors of these idiots, company policies that are unfair and all the other things we need to know to counteract the liberal mindset and the evil plans of liberals?
How would you be part of a Freep?
What would you do without FR????
Freedom isnt free.
If you enjoy the site and find it a place of like minded Americans to sound off, to get together, to fight back, to have your voice heard and make a difference, PLEASE CONTRIBUTE NOW! Jim cant do this alone.
The liberals are sure we wont be able to keep FR up & running. Prove them wrong. Show them we are indeed united Freepers. Whether it is $5.00, $50.00 or more, it all adds up. Please send a donation now to Free Republic."
Thank you very much, Yaelle!!
