Fellow FReepers - check out how our beloved FR has changed! I've included the oldest link available, from 1996, to its front page then. Remember Ken Starr deciding Vince Foster's death a suicide? Who doesn't? Read what was happening back then, here:

Free Republic: December 1996

If you want to see more archived FR pages, simply go to:

<A HREF="http://web.archive.org>Internet Wayback Machine</A> <p> and search by ENTIRE URL. (http://etc.......) You cannot search by text. <p> You can even take a gander at how the old Clinton/Gore www.whitehouse.gov website looked! (yikes!) <p> enjoy! <p> Mrs Kus

Thanks for this piece of information. FR looked grim in 1996 - - -but I liked the category "Scandals."

Egad, formatting flop.

Here is that source link, to search for any old web site they may have:

Internet Wayback Machine

Sorry about that. Don't know how I missed it in the preview.

A Free Republic

If you believe that our nation has been drifting away from Abraham Lincoln's "government of the people", or that our government has deserted our Founding Fathers' vision of a Free Republic as set forth in the Constitution, or that our government has mushroomed completely out of control, or that the so-called free press has been "protecting" us from the ugly truth -- read on.

On these pages we hope to bring you news of the nation not only from the mainstream media, but also from lesser known sources - small papers, newsletters, talk shows, government publications, online websites, and gasp, even from conspiracy theorists (sometimes there really are fires beneath all that smoke).


Notice the part in bold from the old mission statement.

I'd love to check out the early days of a website I worked for (1996) up through March of this year. But darn it, I'm getting "data retrieval errors!" Anybody else have this problem?

Wow,cgk-- thanks for the memories. I remember being pissed and depressed about the Clintons and then, discovering FR in '98. I'm still pissed and depressed about the Clintons but its good to know I have company.BTW, Saturday mornings were all about Heckle & Jeckle.

Cool! I would like to see FreeRepublicTV...

The RNC has a great TV studio on the concourse level at our headquarters in DC. I was there when it was built and they never really used it the way I would have.

Anyway, just a thought.

Ahhhh the good old days . . . when software companies thought they had a chance in hell against Bill Borg-Gates.
