Skip to comments.Why donate to Free Republic? How does Free Republic advance conservatism?
Posted on 04/21/2012 12:02:36 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
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.
Bah Bah knew I was in church on Sunday AM and missed some of the shows. She also knew I read her posts religiously.
We had so much fun on the cruise...You know the comment about old friends not seeing each other for a time and just picking up where they left off..... Only we didn’t have the past friendship only here on FR. So many of us on those trips were like old friends.
LOL GOOD! TOL won’t mind. She graciously gifted it to me after I shamelessly admired it so much.
Ruh Roh! :)
YES! I’m also rarely around to watch the Sunday shows, but I would read those threads for her comments! She didn’t post her recaps with biases. She was truly rare and special.
Thank you, onyx..
Donating to FR is like investing for my great grandsons’ future.
What would you do
If you were asked to give up your dreams for freedom?
What would you do
If asked to make the ultimate sacrifice?
Would you think about all them people
Who gave up everything they had?
Would you think about all them War Vets
And would you start to feel bad?
Freedom isn't free
It costs folks like you and me
And if we don't all chip in
We'll never pay that bill
Freedom isn't free
No, there's a hefty in' fee.
And if you don't throw in your buck 'o five
I found FR just as the US was going to war with Iraq. It became my ‘first’ resource for information about what was happening since I had a son in “Desert Shield” who later served in Quate. Diogenese’s photos both impressed, inspired, and comforted me for those told the true story of our brave soldiers...that I will never forget.
After finally getting my own computer the first thing I did was sign up for FR. of course! There is no better site on the web.... Not only reporting the latest but real time comments when there’s something serious happening...and efforts to ‘find the truth’ of the matter.
