Howdy everyone!!

We're getting there!!

We're now over EIGHTY percent of the way to our current quarter FReepathon goal!! Only $17k to go!! We can do this!! A little more help from our dear loyal friends and we're over the top!!

If you enjoy reading and participating on FR and if you think it's a worthwhile endeavor and would like to help us keep it going, please click the link above and donate via secure server. Make it a monthly if you can.

Or mail checks to Free Republic, LLC - PO Box 9771 - Fresno, CA 93794.

Free Republic is funded solely by contributions made by liberty loving grassroots conservatives like you who enjoy and use it. We take no money from and are not beholden to outsiders or corporate or party string pullers.

New monthly donors:

We currently have some very generous FReeper sponsors who will kick in an additional $10.00 per new monthly donor, so this is a great way to get a little extra bang per your buck and to help future FReepathons run a little faster.

And FR delivers a BIG bang for your buck!! Each dollar donated delivers thousands of pages of corruption-exposing/liberty-advancing information to thousands of liberty-loving readers all across the fruited plains and around the globe. The sun never sets on Free Republic!!

FR costs: Approx $0.001 per page delivered (that's 1 tenth of a cent per page!).

FR benefit: Priceless!!

Thank you all very much!!

Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God.

We are the resistance!!

Prayers up for our beloved Republic!!

And it is a Republic (if we can keep it)!!

God bless.

"Of all the many talks I had in Washington, none gave me such pleasure as that with you. There were two reasons for this. In the first place, you are about my oldest friend. In the second place, your self-assurance and to me, at least, demonstrated ability, give me a great feeling of confidence about the future

… and I have the utmost confidence that through your efforts we will eventually beat the hell out of those bastards —

"You name them; I'll shoot them!"

~George S. Patton

Letter to Dwight D. Eisenhower (1942)

Free Republic is funded solely by contributions made by liberty loving grassroots conservatives like you who enjoy and use it. We take no money from and are not beholden to outsiders or corporate or party string pullers.

So it's all in our hands. It should be obvious. If, out of the bazillion people who enjoy Free Republic, just 3000 monthly donor FReepers gave $10.00 per month, the budget would be met. Period. End of story. No more FReepathons.

This is not a pipe dream. This is a reachable goal. All it takes is enough like-minded people literally putting their money where their mouths are. Accept the challenge. Let's reach this goal together.

A Few Words of Wisdom from Benjamin Franklin



A countryman between two lawyers is like a fish between two cats.

A good conscience is a continual Christmas.

A great empire, like a great cake, is most easily diminished at the edges.

A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.

A learned blockhead is a greater blockhead than an ignorant one.

A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small bundle.

A penny saved is a penny earned.

A place for everything, everything in its place.

All mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move.

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.

And whether you're an honest man, or whether you're a thief, depends on whose solicitor has given me my brief.

Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do.

Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.

Be slow in choosing a friend, slower in changing.

All mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move.

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.

Anger is never without a reason, but seldom with a good one.

Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do.

Being ignorant is not so much a shame, as being unwilling to learn.

Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship.

Buy what thou hast no need of and ere long thou shalt sell thy necessities.

By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.

Content makes poor men rich; discontent makes rich men poor.

Creditors have better memories than debtors.

Diligence is the mother of good luck.

Distrust and caution are the parents of security.

Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out.

Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of.

Each year one vicious habit discarded, in time might make the worst of us good.

Eat to please thyself, but dress to please others.

Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.

Employ thy time well, if thou meanest to gain leisure.

Energy and persistence conquer all things.






Now more than ever we need Free Republic to help spread the Conservative message.

Please help keep the lights on at Free Republic by making a donation to the 2nd Quarter 2012 Freepathon.
