I'll make a(nother) donation to FR tonight. How about you?
BTLD | 5/17/12 | BTLD

48 days in and we've been stuck between 60% and 62% for the past week.

FRiends, without FR, no matter who wins in November, we won't be here to point out the rights and wrongs and hold the eventual winner's feet to the fire.

The vast majority of FReepers don't actually donate to FR. I get it. Some just don't have the financial means to donate.

How about a couple of bucks? This is the most important election cycle in our lifetime.

I'll toss in some more bucks. Please do what you can.

Thanks...

BTLD

I donate monthly. Have been doing so for years. Basically a dollar a day. Once a month, $30 comes off my credit card and goes to the Free Republic. No pain. No guilt in ignoring the Freepathon threads.

Let the cliches roll out. For less than the price of a daily cup of coffee, you can help support the Free Republic.

Consider that they are charging a dollar for a copy of the Boston Globe or New York Times. Cancel those rags and donate it to the Free Republic instead!

Let's say you have HBO. Cancel it and give the money to Free Republic instead. Now I like some of the shows on HBO like Broadstreet Empire and The Sopranos. But do you know you can get those shows on Netflix? So forget about HBO and give to the Free Republic instead.

Monthly donation by way of credit card. That's the way to go.

I’ve hung out. I’ve kicked in a dollar here and there. I’ve been suspended.

When JimRob made his stand and said “Donations be damned” I became a monthly donor.

I've been a monthly donor since last year (and donated sporadically before that).

But your post sorta caught my attention.

So I've just fired another equal one-time amount over the transom to JimRob and crew via PayPal, to help complete this Freepathon. It's not a lot, but it's what I can do, so there it is.

Thanks for the kick in the butt! :)

Thanks for posting this. I am monthly, but gave more a couple of days ago as confirmation of my support for FR.

Maybe monthlies and $1 a day people and all others could give something more in celebration of FR remaining a conservative forum sticking to conservative principles in these trying times.

Free Republic stays conservative - now and for times to come.

I can only afford $5 a month right now. I started that back up a few months ago. But I’ll try, maybe one less beer! lol

You're welcome! :)

Hey, I gave your thread a mention on the FReepathon thread over here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2884931/posts?page=242#242

But that thread seems scary quiet. Is that the active FReepathon thread still, or did I post the comment to a dead thread?

Nope, looks like it is the right one. Just saw a reply/ack.

Gotta get to bed now, but thanks again and keep up the great work on behalf of FR!

God Bless!

I donated as usual, but you are right. Some just think 2 or 3 dollars seems too cheap and all that they can afford and that amount makes a big difference if most do it also. I just don’t think there are that many who can’t donate even a small amount-— even in ObamaVille.

Everyone on here should be a monther at a buck or a fifty if they can do it. Freepathons need to DIE.

Question? What would you do if tomorrow you went to get your news and Free Republic was gone? What is out there that even comes close to this site?

Freepers don’t complain they DO! Let’s “do it” and be done with Freepathons.

“When JimRob made his stand and said “Donations be damned”.........”

Yup, THAT’s precisely when we kicked in another $20.00 on top of what we’d already sent early on in the FReepathon.

Jim reestablished our faith in the goals of FR with that one after some pretty brutal threads leaving us shakin’ our heads, and our jaws smackin’ the floor.

It’s good to be a FReeper, and it just feels good participating, and payin’ our way for something so damned important as FR is.
