Free Republic 4th Quarter Fundraising Target: $88,000 Receipts & Pledges to-date: $55,594
63%  
Woo hoo!! And we're now over 63%!! Thank you all very much!! God bless.


Which would you rather be a thing of the past, Free Republic or the FReepathon?

FRiends, we are now in the 28th day of the 2nd quarter
FReepathon. With slightly over $26000 in donations,
the daily average is approximately $933.

It doesn't take a genius to tell that at this rate, on the 90th day
of the FReepathon, we would still be short of the quarterly goal.
That, my FRiends, is a damn shame!

The number of steadfast dependable contributors is
far too small when compared to the number of people
who regularly avail themselves of the fountain of information
that is Free Republic.

Times are hard. I get it, really. Income's not rising,
but groceries, gas, medicine and more surely are. Still, when
I examine the "bang for the buck" of a number of expenses,
Free Republic ranks toward the top of the list.

I'm scraping together another donation now. Won't you
take a moment, look under the sofa cushions,
and in your hearts, and give some financial support to
this forum that means so very much to us all?

God bless you, and God bless America, still the land of the free
and the home of the brave!

As Jim has said numerous times, we are 100% user funded. If we don't support Free Republic, it can't survive.

All donations, large or small, help keep Free Republic at the forefront of the battle for liberty. Please join the fight today. Become a monthly donor, and help stamp out FReepathons in our lifetime.

If an OFIG (old fixed income geezer) like me can scrape together a few extra bucks for Free Republic, anybody can.

Jim has said that more than numerous times, and ignores any other useful advice.

This site should have made him a millionaire, and none of us here would have felt anything wrong about that. (We LIKE capitalism here)

No one would have objected to some advertising. Drudge report does it in a very unobtrusive way.

But to go contstantly begging for money is not a working model.

I would GLAD pay for ‘membership’ if I was forced to, and there should be some recognition that you are a contributor. Maybe a gold, silver or bronze star next to your name indication your level of sponsorship.

And nothing has changed for a decade. Why does hardware crash so much when he has over a $300,000 a year budget? I could run this site on one-forth of that.

And there is still no ‘like’ button. We can preach to each other all day long, but there is no way to share the nuggets we find of good stuff with the rest of the world. That would not only be EASY these days, but it would generate new traffic to the site and possible more income.

TAKE AN ADVERTSIEMENT OR TWO, it won’t kill you, Jim.

Salon.com and other idiot libtard sites have millions of dollars of funding. why don’t you? after 20 years this site should be way more important and more well known then those.

The only thing I would NOT like was if he cashed in his chips and sold it- THEN I would not trust the content anymore.

Why no contact The Blaze and try to set up a partnership or something? Show us you learned a thing or two about business here.

Please feel free to proceed with that plan at any time. We will be watching for your site. Thanks.

Yes, it came through fine on 04/26/2013 8:25:09 PM PDT. You should have received an automatic acknowledgement to your registered email address.

But it was posted here:

The Boss has said repeatedly that FR is beholden to no one. We owe no one ANYTHING and no one OWNS us OR our content.

Free Republic is unique. It is not Drudge. It is not Facebook. It IS FR!

No Way!
