We the people built America!! We settled it, we hacked it out of the wilderness. We fought for it, we defended it, we died for it. We built our homes, our farms, our factories, our businesses, our schools, our churches, our towns. We raised and educated our children to continue building it.

And as everyone who graduated from the eighth grade before the government propaganda artists took over knows, we the people built the government:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

And we the people granted the government certain LIMITED powers reserving all others to the states and to ourselves:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The government did NOT build America. We the people built it. If anything, the government has stood in the way nearly every step of the way!! And now the government has openly stated that its goal is to destroy the "flawed" constitution, destroy freedom and destroy the free economy altogether by fundamentally transforming America from a free country to a socialist state.

You, our elected representatives and appointed lackeys, are NOT our RULERS. You are our SERVANTS!! Never forget that!!

Mr. pResident, you are just the current temporary occupant. An unfortunate mistake of history that will soon be rectified by we the people.

Free Republic is here to continue fighting for independence and freedom and against the unconstitutional encroachment of ever expanding socialist government. Government derives its just powers from the consent of the governed. We do not consent to godless liberal/progressive socialist government!!

We believe in the founding principles with all our hearts and mean to defend them to our dying breath:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable 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 to 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.

God granted us life and liberty along with all of our other unalienable rights. We place our faith in God, not government. With God all things are possible.

If you enjoy reading and participating on FR, if you think it's a worthwhile endeavor and 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.

Monthly challenge:

Free Republic is funded solely by contributions made by liberty loving people who enjoy and use it. We are beholden to no political party, no outsiders, no sugar daddies, no corporate string pullers. We are self-funded, fiercely independent and enjoy our freedom to speak plainly in the name of Liberty.

Thank you all very much!!

Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God.

We are the resistance!!

Prayers up for our Republic!!

God bless.

" There are those in America today who have come to depend absolutely on government for their security. And when government fails they seek to rectify that failure in the form of granting government more power. So, as government has failed to control crime and violence with the means given it by the Constitution, they seek to give it more power at the expense of the Constitution.

But in doing so, in their willingness to give up their arms in the name of safety, they are really giving up their protection from what has always been the chief source of despotism — government.

Lord Acton said power corrupts. Surely then, if this is true, the more power we give the government the more corrupt it will become. And if we give it the power to confiscate our arms we also give up the ultimate means to combat that corrupt power. In doing so we can only assure that we will eventually be totally subject to it. When dictators come to power, the first thing they do is take away the people's weapons. It makes it so much easier for the secret police to operate, it makes it so much easier to force the will of the ruler upon the ruled."

~Ronald Reagan

What Would You Do Without Free Republic?


"What would you do Without FR?????

Suppose one day you tried to log on and Free Republic wasn’t 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 isn’t 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 can’t do this alone.

The liberals are sure we won’t 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."

Throughout the generations, great Americans remind us . . .
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable 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."
The Declaration of Independence
