Please keep those donations coming in, folks. We need your continuing support to keep FR going strong.
As you know, FR is funded solely by the donations provided by the people who love and use it.
We do not depend on advertisers because we don't want them trying to control what we may or may not say.
We do not depend on corporate sponsors because we don't want them trying to control what we may or may not say.
We do not depend on well-heeled wealthy donors because we don't want them trying to control what we may or may not say.
We do not have partnerships or agreements with other organizations or political parties because we don't want them trying to control what we may or may not say.
We are not an IRS 501c non-profit and we are not subsidized by the taxpayer because we do not want government or the IRS trying to control what we may or may not say.
We sell no merchandise or memberships because we are not a for profit commercial enterprise and we prefer to keep it that way. If we go commercial it will change the entire mission and nature of FR. I'm not interested in becoming wealthy and I do not want FR's goal to be to maximize profits. We raise only enough to cover our expected operating costs for the current quarter.
It's just us freedom loving citizens exercising our first amendment rights, free of any political party, government, corporate or outside influences.
But we do maintain our own conservative standards however. We believe this nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and our liberty is granted by God our Creator and we the people are the sovereigns over government. We the people through our sovereign states established the constitution and the central government and granted it certain constitutionally enumerated and limited powers, reserving all others to our states and our people to decide. Government derives its just powers at the consent of the governed.
Our government is now at war against the founding principles, against the constitution, against the states, against we the people, against liberty. against life, against God's nature and natural order, and against God Himself.
Our government's goal, especially since the ascension of Barack Obama and his lawless Marxist/fascist regime is to "fundamentally transform America."
Fundamentally transform it by ripping out God, constitution, family, religion and liberty by the roots and replacing it with total dependence on government, ie, transforming America from a free Republic to a communist state!
Our mission is to defend God, family, country, constitution and liberty and to restore our constitutional Republic!
So please keep those donations coming in, folks. With Obama's lawless Marxist/fascist regime pulling out all stops on the road to fundamentally transforming America from a free Republic to a communist state, we need FR now more than ever to keep it free!
Make it a monthly if you can. We have some very generous FReeper sponsors who are kicking in an extra ten bucks for each new monthly that signs up. So sign up for a monthly today and get a little extra bang for your buck!!
FReeper I_be_tc donates $100 each quarter and challenges 300 others to do the same. If we could get 300 FReepers to send in a $100 or more each, it would help bring the FReepathon to a successful conclusion!! We've received 36 donations of $100 or more so far this quarter!! If you send in $100 or more per quarter, please send me a note and I'll add your screen name to the 300 Club roster!!

The Great State of Florida
"Florida is a state in the southeastern region of the United States, bordered to the west by the Gulf of Mexico, to the north by Alabama and Georgia and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean. Florida is the 22nd most extensive, the 4th most populous, and the 8th most densely populated of the 50 United States. The state capital is Tallahassee, its largest city is Jacksonville, and the Miami metropolitan area is the largest metropolitan area in the southeastern United States.
Much of Florida is situated on a peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Straits of Florida. Its geography is marked by a coastline, by the omnipresence of water and the threat of hurricanes. Florida has the longest coastline in the contiguous United States, encompassing approximately 1,350 miles (2,170 km), and is the only state to border both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Much of the state is at or near sea level and its terrain is characterized by sedimentary soils. The climate varies from subtropical in the north to tropical in the south. Its symbolic animals like the American alligator, Florida panther and the manatee, can be found in the Everglades, one of the most famous national parks in the world. "
I've got to do this, only because I've been right for 16 years...
FL will come in third. There I said it.
If I hit the lotto, and FL comes in second or first, I will hire the Rolling Stones for a concert on the banks of lake Okeechobee for all FL FReepers.
"South Carolina is a state in the Southeastern United States. It is bordered to the north by North Carolina; to the south and west by Georgia, located across the Savannah River; and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean.
Originally part of the Province of Carolina, the Province of South Carolina was the first of the 13 colonies that declared independence from the British Crown during the American Revolution. The colony was originally named by King Charles II of England in honor of his father Charles I (Carolus being Latin for Charles).
South Carolina was the first state to ratify the Articles of Confederation, the 8th state to ratify the US Constitution on May 23, 1788. South Carolina later became the first state to vote to secede from the Union which it did on December 20, 1860. It was readmitted to the United States on June 25, 1868.
South Carolina is the 40th most extensive and the 24th most populous of the 50 United States. South Carolina comprises 46 counties. The capital and largest city of the state is Columbia. "
You shall be correct again!
Go Lotto!! :)
The Great State of Georgia
"Georgia is a state located in the southeastern United States. It was established in 1732, the last of the original Thirteen Colonies. Named after King George II of Great Britain, Georgia was the fourth state to ratify the United States Constitution, on January 2, 1788. It declared its secession from the Union on January 21, 1861, and was one of the original seven Confederate states. It was the last state to be restored to the Union, on July 15, 1870.
Georgia is the 24th most extensive and the 9th most populous of the 50 United States. From 2007 to 2008, 14 of Georgia's counties ranked among the nation's 100 fastest-growing, second only to Texas.
Georgia is known as the Peach State and the Empire State of the South.
Atlanta is the state's capital and its most populous city.."
Do you know what another thing is that can be found in the FL Everglades? Oil wells.
The Great State of Missouri
"Missouri nicknamed The Show-Me Stateis a U.S. state located in the Midwestern United States. Missouri is the 21st most extensive and the 18th most populous of the 50 United States. Missouri comprises 114 counties and the independent city of St. Louis.
The four largest urban areas are Kansas City, St. Louis, Springfield, and Columbia. Missouri's capital is Jefferson City. The land that is now Missouri was acquired from France as part of the Louisiana Purchase and became known as the Missouri Territory. Part of the Territory was admitted into the union as the 24th state on August 10, 1821.
Missouri's geography is highly varied. The northern part of the state lies in dissected till plains while the southern part lies in the Ozark Mountains (a dissected plateau), with the Missouri River dividing the two.
The state lies at the intersection of the three greatest rivers of North America, with the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers near St. Louis, and the confluence of the Ohio River with the Mississippi north of the Bootheel. The starting points of the Pony Express Trail and Oregon Trail were both in Missouri. The mean center of United States population as of the 2010 Census is at the town of Plato in Texas County, Missouri.
Ethnically, the majority of Missourians are of German descent. The state also has a sizeable population of African Americans.
