It hardly seems like ten years has gone by since Jim Robinson created this web site. Much has been accomplished since this site was created during the dark days of the Clinton Administration - and much remains to be done.

On the occasion of this tenth anniversary, I hope you will join me in saying - Thanks Jim!

Thank you to Jim Robinson for the step of courage in telling it like it is! Opening up a site where we could "Stand Up and Shout FREEDOM"........I check my FreeRepublic every day, at least 10 or 15 times. It is where I go for my news.

On behalf of our family,

Thank you!!!

Jim, my congratulations. "And it shall come to pass that the small shall shake the counsels of the great."

Something very crucial has happened in the intervening decade with respect to the voice of the common citizen. We live in the country best suited to utilize in politics the free-wheeling, no-holds-barred crucible that is the Internet. Autocrats and despots the world over - our own as well - lay awake nights worrying how to control it. If we can keep it free it will control them.

Happy anniversary!

I was pretty liberal before I started lurking in 99. My very conservative husband showed me this site during the Elian ordeal. I was hooked. Thank YOU!!

The best place for breaking news. Bar none. Way ahead of every network and cable joint.

The best place to stretch your mind and hone your debating skeels.

Hard to believe next week is my seventh anniversary. Does that mean I'm no longer a newbie?

JimRob -- we love you and thank you.

As I've asked you before-----"Did you ever think it would come to this?" From a simple idea, to a world-wide phenom with respect and influence and feared by many, and a place where thousands daily turn to for their news?

Yes-- much more is needed to be done, but 'Freepers are up to it!

Bless you!
