I was a normal kind of guy. I ate food went out for walks and even watched videos, eek! I took the wife shopping. Even talked to the wife once in awhile.
Then that fateful night of Nov 7th 2000. I had to go somewhere else to to watch the election results as I do not have Cable TV. I went to the pizza joint on rt 7 and then to my secret election watch hide out.(No one to interupt)
I wanted to watch Bush beat the socks off of Gore. I new it was going to be a great night. Little did I know I would never sleep that night or for the next 5 weeks.
It took me till the end of November to find out I was not alone. That there was a freerepublic.com.
Before I would tell people the truth and they all wouldn't have a clue or they thought, this boy is NUTS! It was a lonely life thinking Am I The Only One that sees what is going on with this country and what the liberal bias media and the leftist democrats were doing to it, let alone the Clintons and Reno.
Well to make the story short. I was watching the news and these great people were on TV saying get out of Cheneys house. There it was the sign said Freerepublic.com. I copied it down and ran to my computer. I typed it in and sure enough The NEW WORLD WAS RIGHT BEFORE MY EYES!
I think what would my life be if there was not a FR. If the rest of you were not here. That was enough to make me sit up and take notice. What can I do to make sure FR is here forever. Then I found out all I had to do was support the place and along with 70,000 other members make FR home. That we could change the world from here and with hundreds of thousands of people stopping by everyday we could tell the whole world the truth.
I would not trade all of you fine FReepers for any other world.
My life has never been the same since I found www.freerepublic.com (What about yours?) Ok everyone has your life been the same since logging on to FR and what adventures have you had?
And don't forget to check out the source and stop in and say hello to the fine FReepers over there.
FR is the #1 News Forum on the internet. Thanks to FReepers and Jim Robinson.
I found FR when Rush challenged us to find the Charelton Heston speech on the internet. It was here, of course. Haven't left since.
I used to waste two hours a day watching the TV news, trying to glean from it a few minutes of useful information, as 'thin' as it was. Since I found FreeRepublic, I haven't watched a Total of 2 hours of TV news, and am MUCH better informed about the issues that interest me.
FreeRepublic is WELL WORTH the monthly donation I provide. It saves me precious personal time AND sharpens my mind.

It's a good thing they don't read what I post about them here :D
I USED to get studying done in the evening.
I log on tonight and the second post is this one.
I spend about two hours each day in the evening ar FreeRepublic. But now it is getting worse. I login in the morning before work (I make myself get up earlier.) Then a short time ago I started logging on at work. Breaks, lunch, and even during work time
Thank God that I'm the president of this company or I would be in serious trouble.
Many times I have Logged Off FreeRepublic and said I would never again get involved in Posting or Replys but so far success has eluded me.
I will just have to go cold turkey, can't afford rehab.
Newsmax and Loud citizen don't get me wrong I love you guys too. But you know you are all lurking here all day!
Thanks for your contributions to the site.
