This FReepathon thread is for FReepers who believe in and support our pro-life, pro-family, pro-limited government conservative causes, enjoy reading and participating on FR, think it's a worthwhile endeavor and would like to help us keep it going.
I retired the previous thread as it was being used by posters who obviously do not agree with our purposes here and or no longer enjoy participating on FR or no longer believe it is worthwhile. Hopefully, they'll respect us enough to stay off this thread. If they no longer enjoy FR, no longer respect us, etc, then perhaps they should consider leaving. I'm certainly not asking them to donate, but I do expect them not to be disruptive to our purposes here.
We are the resistance!! And have been since inception in 1996. We are traditional pro-life, small government, strong defense American conservatives and will accept nothing less. We defend our God, defend our Liberty, defend our constitution and defend our founding principles.
We believe this nation was founded on the principle that all men are created equal by God and endowed with unalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Our current government has stretched itself way beyond its constitutional limits, granted itself powers not enumerated for it and which were reserved to the states and the people, has abused and trampled on the rights of the people and otherwise has made itself destructive to the founding principles.
Government derives its just powers at the consent of the government. We do not grant our consent to oppressive government or to government officials who do not defend the constitution, life and liberty!!
We believe the federal government should be altered by removing all functions and powers it has granted to itself which are not enumerated to it by the constitution and all such functions and powers returned to the states and the people per the tenth amendment. And we believe that "law" unconstitutionally enacted, upheld and sustained by judicial fiat, ie, such as Roe v Wade be immediately overturned, rescinded, stricken, abolished, etc, and the principle of unalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness be fully restored.
If this sounds simplistic, well it is. The founding principles are straight forward. Our Declaration, Constitution and Bill of Rights are clear. Words have meanings. We should not allow lawyers, judges, power hungry politicians, greedy special interests, leftist ideologues, etc, to twist the clear meanings and principles of liberty to suit their tyrannical purposes.
The constitution must be upheld and our liberty fully restored!!
The two major political parties are hell bent and riding hard to strengthen their grasp on unconstitutional power. The GOP-e can hardly wait to strip the pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-liberty, pro-borders planks from its platform. Romney is their ticket to get it done. If staunch pro-life, pro-liberty conservatives can be turned, then these principles are no longer a serious threat to the usurpers.
Do not let them do this.
Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God.
We are the resistance!!
If you believe in resisting the usurpers, fighting tyranny and restoring Liberty as I do, then please keep the donations and checks coming in. And turn out in November and vote your conscience. Vote straight conservative. We need tea party conservatives voted into as many local state and federal offices as humanly possible. The Republic you save may be your own!!

|2012` Q2 FReepathon. Target: $88,000||Receipts & Pledges to-date: $31,748|
Now over THIRTY-SIX percent!!!!!!!
Thank you all very much!!!!!!!
WE ARE THE SOVEREIGNS & THE RESISTANCE!
REBELLION IS ON!
THE REPUBLIC YOU SAVE MAY BE YOUR OWN!
I have a question. For those of us who are currently making a monthly automated donation, what is the proper procedure for increasing the amount? If I go into the donation page and enter a monthly amount will that REPLACE the current amount? Or will it set up a new monthly amount in addition to CONTINUING the existing lower amount? I want to INCREASE my monthly donation amount but I don’t want to inadvertently increase it by more than I want.
Whatever the procedure is, it should be made more explicit. Sorry if I’m over thinking this, but I’m in IT so tend to do that sometimes in an abundance of caution.
That’s it!!! lolol
Pinging Jim Robinson for you now, so that he can answer your question.
Mr. Robinson — another $40 coming from me. Sorry, the best I can do right now.
As a side note: it is somewhat interesting that you don’t see many of the most vociferous posters on either the dollar-a-day or monthlies lists. Maybe they are anonymous in their generosity.
With great respect,
LOL. I'm with ya. My boss used to say if someone asked me what time it is, I'd end up telling them how to build a watch. You should be getting an answer shortly. In the meantime, thanks VERY much for your planned increase. You rock!
Jim might be at dinner (he lives in CA). I think, he can usually do the increases for Monthly Donors like wonderful generous you, when you tell him and authorize the amount. He will reply to you, ASAP. Thank you very much, HouseAtreides!!!!
