July is here and it's time for another FReepathon!!
We're hoping the 2010 tea party sweeps continue in 2012 and beyond!! We need to increase the conservative majority in the House, take the majority in the senate and continue sweeping conservatives into as many state and local offices as we can all across this great land!! No matter who wins the presidency, we're going to need the states and the people and FR to hold their feet to the fire!!
It's way past time to vote or impeach the corrupt bastards OUT!!
If you enjoy reading and participating on FR and if YOU think it's a worthwhile endeavor and YOU would like to help us keep it going, please click the link above and donate via secure server. Make it a monthly if you can.
Or mail checks to Free Republic, LLC - PO Box 9771 - Fresno, CA 93794.
Free Republic is funded solely by contributions made by liberty loving grassroots conservatives like you who enjoy and use it. We take no money from and are not beholden to outsiders or corporate string pullers or party king makers. Help keep FR independent and commercial-free!!
New Monthly Donor Campaign:
We currently have some very generous FReeper sponsors who are kicking in an additional $10.00 per each new monthly donor, so this is a great way to get a little extra bang for your buck and to help future FReepathons run a little faster.
And FR does delivers a BIG bang for your buck!! Each dollar donated delivers thousands of pages of corruption-exposing/liberty-advancing grassroots conservative information to thousands of liberty-loving readers all across the great fruited plains and around the globe. The sun never sets on Free Republic!!
FR costs: Approx $0.001 per page delivered (that's one tenth of one cent per page!).
FR benefit: Priceless!!
Thank you all very much!!
Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God.
We are the resistance!!
Prayers up for our Liberty and our beloved Republic!!
And it is a Republic, if we can keep it!!
You bet! Take care of yourself, friend. :)

"In 1777, thirteen gunshots were fired in salute, once at morning and once again as evening fell, on July 4 in Bristol, Rhode Island. Philadelphia celebrated the first anniversary in a manner a modern American would find quite familiar: an official dinner for the Continental Congress, toasts, 13-gun salutes, speeches, prayers, music, parades, troop reviews, and fireworks. Ships were decked with red, white, and blue bunting."
"Yesterday the greatest question was decided which ever was debated in America; and a greater perhaps never was, nor will be, decided among men.
A resolution was passed without one dissenting colony, "that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States. "
" "When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with inherent and inalienable Rights; that among these, are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness; that to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
For the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor."
What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?
"The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all.
I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere."
