Woo hoo!! And with the remaining monthlies rolled in, we're now over 75%!! Less than 25% to go!! We can do this!!

Your loyal support keeps FR alive and is greatly appreciated!!

Free Republic is funded solely by the donations provided by the people who love and use it. We accept no advertising or corporate sponsors. We sell no merchandise or memberships. We are not a 501c and are not subsidized by the government. It's just us independent freedom loving grassroots conservatives exercising our first amendment rights free of any political party, government or outside influences.

No subsidies. No sugar daddies. No string pullers. NO POP-UPS!!

But we need your continuing support to keep it that way and stay on the air!

So please keep those donations coming in folks. With Obama's corrupt Marxist government pulling out all stops on the road to fundamentally transforming America from a free country to a communist state, we need FR now more than ever to keep it free!

Make it a monthly if you can. We have some very generous FReeper sponsors who are kicking in an extra ten bucks for each new monthly that signs up. So sign up for a monthly today and get a little extra bang for your buck!!

Woo Hoo!! There are 45 New Monthly Donors so far this FReepathon including 10 New Dollar-A-Day Donors!!

FReeper I_be_tc donates $100 each quarter and challenges 300 others to do the same. If we could get 300 FReepers to send in a $100 or more each, it would help bring the FReepathon to a successful conclusion!! We've received 173 donations of $100 or more so far this quarter!! If you send in $100 or more per quarter, please send me a note and I'll add your screen name to the 300 Club roster!!

Whether your donation is $5, $10, $20, $50 or $100 or more, it will help keep FR alive and will be sincerely and truly appreciated!!

$25 keeps FR ALIVE!!

Thank you all very much!!

God bless.

Did you read his autobiography? I think subtitled “The early years”. It is really interesting. He led quite a life.

I read a bio (little blue book) of him when I was a child. I’ve read some articles since then, but nothing solid. I’ve always thought that he was a mensch. I should order that one.

"My approach recognizes the basic principle of a written Constitution. We "the people" adopted a written Constitution precisely because it has a fixed meaning, a meaning that does not change. Otherwise we would have adopted the British approach of an unwritten, evolving constitution.
Aside from amendment according to Article V, the Constitution’s meaning cannot be updated, or changed, or altered by the Supreme Court, the Congress, or the President.
Of course, even when strictly interpreted as I believe it should be, the Constitution remains a modern, "breathing" document as some like to call it, in the sense that the Court is constantly required to interpret how its provisions apply to the Constitutional questions of modern life.
Nevertheless, strict interpretation must never surrender to the understandably attractive impulse towards creative but unwarranted alterations of first principles."

Hi Old Lady,

I feel like I know you. Each time I see your name I think of the picture of each of you with Jim. Humblegunner and Onyx are in it too, I think.

I am always glad to “bump” in and see the new totals...I wish I could do more. My monthly donation and a few bucks in pocket change and “picture stealing” are all I could do now. I hope this does not go over into next month but if it does, maybe I can dig a little deeper.
