80,000 Freepers and Growing - Freepathon
3-1-02 | Topaz

Posted on 03/01/2002 4:59:36 AM PST by Topaz

When Jim Robinson started Free Republic in September, 1996 to expose the corruption in government and particularly the Clinton Whitehouse, he was alone. Now six years later, Free Republic has 80,000 registered members and who knows how many visit this site often, just to keep up on the latest conservative thinking.

Folks, you all know where this is going, Free Republic is a user supported website and it is time to support it. Four times a year we have this freepathon to donate a few dollars to pay for the bandwidth and expenses necessary to keep Free Republic online, and we do so with gratitude and cheer because of what is offered and accomplished by the existence of Free Republic.

Free Republic does not charge a membership fee or get supported by a government grant. No, people from across the World make donations large and small because they see the value of Free Republic. So if you're one that appreciates this site and want to see it continue, please send in a few dollars to help keep it alive.

80,000? I wonder how many of that number visit and or post a minimum of once a week. Once a month? I know of one registered Handle that never visits any more and that is because it is my old handle.

A reminder - those who wish can designate a regular monthly donation via credit card if you want. I did this last time - easy for me and gives JimRob a better feel of regular income. Mega thanks to JimRob and ALL who help us keep this vital site up and running.

BTW - if you're not sure you want to financially support this site - just consider without Free Republic we could be back in the dark ages of NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN!! Something to think about!

Just contributed $50. Because business has picked up, I'm glad to help. (I'm sending the message from my hotel room in El Paso where I spent the week. Without FR available on my laptop, I'd be lost! Good luck on the Freepathon!)

Granted that there are "duplicates" in that 80,000 figure, but I submit that would be the exception rather than the rule.

To counter your second handle, I have proudly been "Seeking the Truth" since 2/4/98 and I remember very fondly my discovery of FR on Thanksgiving Day in 1997!

Like all newbies, it took me a bit of time to actually reply to something!

Putting the bar graph up works for me. I think we might have to wait for John Robinson to get up and at'em before it happens though.
