Are you ready for a fundraiser?

It's time again to raise the funds necessary to keep Free Republic on the air. And on the air is where we want to be! And on the air is where Dan Rather wants to be, but thanks to some sharp eyed FReepers, HIS air time may soon be ending.

And we can hope that John Kerry's air time will also soon be ending. Thanks to the Swift Boat Vets, with help and support from FRN and the FReepers, we've managed to put a huge hole in Kerry's hopes of winning the Presidency.

It's been a rather exciting quarter for Free Republic -- catching the AP in some outright false reporting, catching Dan Rather passing off forged military documents in cahoots with his Democrat coconspirators in a failed attempt to knockoff a sitting president, and helping the Swiftees get their ads on the air and spreading the word about Kerry's cowardice and treason in Vietnam. Did you know John Kerry served in Vietnam? The only question is who did he serve?

And we're expecting a pretty exciting 4th quarter on FR with the debates, the final four weeks of the campaign, and then the election itself. Free Republic readership is growing like crazy and we've recently doubled the size of our system to handle the increasing demand. We added a fifth server to the system earlier during the quarter and John just spent the weekend up in San Jose installing three more new servers. Free Republic is now running on eight servers! Free Republic is becoming a monster online force!!

We're also planning the Free Republic George W. Bush Inaugural Ball II, to be held in Washington D.C., on January 20, 2005. Will begin running some threads on this during the next couple of weeks, but feel free to chime in on this thread if you plan on attending. You won't want to miss this, I promise you!

Yes, it's going to be an exciting time to be a member of Free Republic. Breaking news and live threads every day on the war, on the debates, on the campaigns and on every important news story impacting all of America and all of the world. Plus the FReeps, rallies, protests, trips, meetings and other opportunities for FReepers to join together in person for fellowship and to promote our causes.

If you are enjoying Free Republic as much as I hope you are and would like to help us remain on the air, please consider clicking the donation link and make a contribution today. We are setting our goal a little higher this quarter. In addition to our regular budgeted expenses, we've purchased quite a bit of equipment, plus we have some taxes to pay. The additional investments and taxes will have just about depleted our cash reserves and we'll need to replenish them if we can.

Thank you very much if you can make a donation and thank you again if you can make it a monthly. Our monthlies are growing and are now over 50% of our regular budgeted expenses! Great job Monthlies!!

Again, looking forward to all the great events that are coming our way in the next few weeks and months!

Thank you all very much for your patriotism and continuing participation and support for Free Republic and our great conservative causes!

God bless you all and God bless America!

Prayers for our troops.

The Free Republic Lifeform


"... This is a wonderful description of what Free Republic really is. It is a living and evolving Life Form to battle the left wingers and those who would destroy this country!

The Free Republic Life Form enables us to discover the truth about what is happening. We can avoid the spin of the major mediots as they work 24/7 to weaken this country. We come to the Free Republic Life Form to find the truth! ...

Free Republic needs a constant infusion of cash to keep the Free Republic Life Form alive, viable and to grow. If we believe in Free Republic, we must donate each month or quarterly to keep this incredible life form alive...

Good stewardship is what this world needs, not good intentions. Good conservative stewards will insure that the Free Republic Life Form continues to grow, be viable and thrives!"

If I wanted to up my monthly donation from $10 to $15, how would I go about doing that (I'm not sure if I should fill in the monthly donor info for $5.00 or should I cancel the old one and put in a new one for $15.00?


Confused (as usual) in So Cal.

I had a good last quarter, too. A little larger than normal contribution from the Land of Enchantment and Fat King Richard.

Free Republic has never been more valuable and we need it more than ever to win 30 days from now. I shudder to think of what a President Kerry would be like and what he would do to our freedom.

YIPEE!

Now, new members know that this is the time when being a member of Free Republic actually means something.

I implore you to reconsider any magazine or newspaper subscriptions and donate that money, on a monthly basis, to keep Free Republic running (and fast). You simply don't need those magazine subscriptions anymore.

As a monthly contributor, I feel great knowing that my money goes to such a worthwhile cause.

All FREEPERS who aren't contributing, please consider getting on a monthly plan.

Think of it this way, a newspaper subscription can go for $50-$60 bucks/year. That is only about $5/month.

At Free Republic.com, $5 bucks a month gets you:

Free Republic is 100x better than any newspaper (especially certain newspapers...like the NY Times) in distribution.
