And the first month of our final FReepathon for the year is nearly over. We should be breaking through the half-way point soon, then we'll be on the homestretch. Please keep those donations coming in folks, we're going to need FR now more than ever!! We're going to be in for the fight of our lives against the entrenched ruling class who are dead set on running our lives through their socialist/statist policies!!
No thanks!! All God's children just want to be free!! Hallelujah!!
FR is funded solely by the donations made by the people who love and use it. We sell no advertising or merchandise. We have no corporate sponsors or sugar daddies and accept no government subsidies. This means no annoying commercial ads, no ad tracking, and no pop ups!! And no outside influences trying to pressure, sway or control us. It's just us freedom-loving grassroots conservatives using and funding one of our favorite and most useful news and activism organizations.
Thank you all very much for your continuing support!! Your loyal support keeps FR alive and is greatly appreciated.

Make it a monthly if you can. We have some very generous FReeper sponsors who are donating an extra $10 for each new monthly donor signed up. We now have 37 new monthly donors signed up this quarter, including 7 new Dollar-a-Day Donors!! Thank you very much, monthly donors and new monthly sponsors!!
And we now have 117 donations this quarter of $100 or more!! FReeper I_be_tc donates $100 per quarter and challenges 300 other FReepers to do the same. If you donate $100 or more per quarter, please let me know and we'll add your name to the "300 Club Roster!" If we can get 300 members sending in a $100 or more per quarter, these fundraisers would run much faster.
Prayers up for our beloved nation.
And special prayers for all our members in need.
"The only thing preventing people from going back to work and basic research starting back up and farmers and small business owners getting their loans,
the only thing that is preventing all that from happening right now, today,
in the next five minutes is that Speaker John Boehner wont even let the bill get a yes or no vote because he doesnt want to anger the extremists in his party.."

"My approach recognizes the basic principle of a written Constitution. We "the people" adopted a written Constitution precisely because it has a fixed meaning, a meaning that does not change. Otherwise we would have adopted the British approach of an unwritten, evolving constitution.
Aside from amendment according to Article V, the Constitutions meaning cannot be updated, or changed, or altered by the Supreme Court, the Congress, or the President.
Of course, even when strictly interpreted as I believe it should be, the Constitution remains a modern, "breathing" document as some like to call it, in the sense that the Court is constantly required to interpret how its provisions apply to the Constitutional questions of modern life.
Nevertheless, strict interpretation must never surrender to the understandably attractive impulse towards creative but unwarranted alterations of first principles."
~Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas

"It has been observed that a pure democracy if it were practicable would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved that no position is more false than this.
The ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny; their figure deformity."
