Definitely some great black conservatives but we need lots more on our side. I believe that most blacks are conservative but just haven’t gotten out of the “vote democrat” habit. The same could be said for union members.

But that does bring up a good question, is there a Free Republic History thread?

Thanks for that, Jim.

Any chance of seeing the first threads after registration? I read them years ago and it is interesting to see just how discussions went, at that time.

I heard about FR from Drudge and Neil Boortz. I signed in March 1998. Remember the blue dress.........! It was
so good to swap stories during the Toon’s years.

I was here before the '96 election... I found FR from the early Drudge link and pretty soon was here far more than there...but waited until early '98 to register. FR was a special place then, and is still a special, though very different, place now.

Thanks for all you do, Jim!

Well, it was your tagline for two whole posts. Thanks. :O)

Sure, it's not the best, most eloquent statement in the world - just off-the-cuff.

I just thought it would be kind of funny to have as your "mouse-over," given so many people are used to seeing the general "since XX-XX-XXXX" tag.

:O)

No, no, no. FReepers would ‘forget’ to /i off italics in their posts...so the rest of the thread would be ‘italian’ until somebody closed the tag. Then somebody else had to add ‘italians be gone’ then it had to be explained that it was italics not those of italian heritage...yada yada yada...alot of bandwith went with it :)

Someone coined "close your tags, psycho!" but I won't say who.

If the exclamation mark wasn't part of it, I sincerely apologize. I honestly can't remember if the ending concluded with a period or exclamation mark.

I remember finding Free Republic from a link at the Drudge Report.

Good for you. And I really mean that. I wish I had found FR back in 1996-99.

In reality, I didn't start showing interest in politics until I was 28 or so (2003).

Just a "kid" in '96, people I hung around convinced me to vote for Clinton.

I'll never forget.

Oh my goodness! I had forgotten about that!

Do you remember the freeper Budge? I haven't heard from him in a long time, but once the two of us somehow ended up getting left behind after some nightime Freep at the WH, and we walked home together in the dark.

He kept telling me we were perfectly safe, as the two hooks he had to use for hands were very sharp weapons!

Oh--I have so many wonderful memories of all the freeps I attended--especially those big rallies in DC.

We owe so much to da Man by the name of JimRob!
