Welcome to the New Free Republic Donation System!

John has programmed a great new donation system for us. It can accept credit cards or PayPal donations and will eventually also accept electronic checks. We have installed a new secure server system and have contracted with Authorize.net to do the actual credit card processing, and, of course, PayPal will process the PayPal donations through their system.

I've changed the links on our front page to link to the new program:

https://secure.freerepublic.com/donate/

If you have bookmarks to the old system, please update to the new. The old system will be discontinued.

Take a test drive through the new system if you haven't already, and notice that it has several new features and reports available, including scoreboard, current stats, our budget and a faq. It's live now, so if you enter a donation it's for real (and thank you very much if you do).

John will continue making enhancements to the new system as we go, but the basic program is ready to go, and is live, and on the air.

We've decided to roll out our 4th quarter fundraiser with the new system on a late Saturday afternoon, as Saturday's are slow days and we might as well be gentle while breaking in the new system.

Thank you John for the new system! Great work!

Thank you BadJoe, WillaJohns, WIMom and all of the dedicated hardworking volunteers on the fundraising team who have helped us so much with these FReepathons in the past.

And thank you all for your continuing efforts! Without your dedication and hard work, FR could not stay on the air.

And thank you FReepers! Without your continued participation and financial support there would be no Free Republic!

A note to current monthly donors: We will need you to re-enter your recurring monthly donation to the new system, but please do not do it yet. Joe just processed your September donations on the 20th of September. The new system processes your donation on the day it is entered, so please wait until later in October to start your monthly on the new system. Also, please let BadJoe know via FReepmail (and please include your real name so he can match it with your credit card info in his file) after you re-enter your monthly donation so he can take you off his list. At the end of October, he will email all of those on his list who have not contacted him to remind them of the new system. Thank you very much for your continued support.

A note to prospective new monthly donors: We have included a list of our fixed monthly expenses as well as an estimate of our non-recurring expenses on our budget page of the donation system. We've also included an estimate of our current recurring monthly donations from our monthly donors. If and when the total of the recurring monthly donations ever meets our monthly expenses, there will no longer be a need for these FReepathons. It can happen someday. Thank you for considering a regular monthly contribution.

Note to all: We are looking forward to an exciting and rewarding election cycle. I know that we are not all in full agreement on this, but I sincerely believe that we have an excellent opportunity with this election to set the liberals back many years. And I also believe that winning this election in a big way for the conservatives will be the spark that allows our fight to return the Constitution to its rightful place as the Supreme Law of the Land to really get off the ground. I sincerely believe this is essential in our fight to secure our Liberty!

We hold the White House and the House of Representatives. If we re-take the majority in the Senate, it will be one of the very rare times in our history that the conservatives have held the majority control in all departments.

I see this as a gift from God. A majority means that the conservatives will chair the various committees of Congress and can set the legislative agenda. And, perhaps more importantly, a majority in the Senate will make it much more likely that President Bush's appointments will be confirmed.

This means we will be able to start replacing some of the liberal judicial activists on the bench with conservatives (don't tell Daschle & Co. that) and perhaps we will finally have a real shot at actually overturning some of the liberal bunk that has been foisted on us over the last century or so. How about overturning Roe vs Wade? With the current mood of the populace and with a conservative Senate, I think it can be done!

Remember, the liberals have controlled all or most of our government for at least 80 of the last 100 years. No wonder we are in such a mess today. This is the best opportunity we've ever had to reverse it in a big way. Kick the liberals out! Take control of the Senate and replace the liberal judiciary. This alone will set liberalism back thirty to forty years!

We must not fail to take advantage of this opportunity. Daschle and Company sense their days are numbered and are in a panic. Now is the time to redouble our efforts and throw these bums out!

I expect the volume on Free Republic to pick-up substantially as we head into the final weeks and days of the campaign season. And I expect exciting things will be happening for for all of us!

Thank you all very much!

God bless you all and may God continue to bless America!

OK FOLKS LISTEN UP!!

.

It seems that some Freepers that are on dialup are having a bit of trouble loading up the pictures on the Freepathon Thread and since it is taking so long, they end up moving along and not coming to the thread

Maybe we can make the pictures smaller or limit the number of picture between each 50 posts??

If anyone has any suggestions to help those on dialup .. please post them because I am too brain dead to think anymore today .. LOL


And now I'm off to la al land

Sweet Dreams Y'all

Goodnight, Mo1.

On the picures, if the posters would be sure to include "width=xxx" and "height=xxx" parameters within their "img src" html statements, the threads will load much faster. The browsers will reserve space and draw a box for the photo and then continue displaying the rest of the thread while the photo fills the box.

How to disable graphics images so a page loads more quickly
- dialup users THIS WILL HELP!

First, if you use Internet Explorer, go to the menu bar (should be the top of the browser). Click on "View". From its sub-menu, choose "Options".

From the Options dialog box, select the "General" folder tab at the top of the box. In the multimedia section you can select whether or not Internet Explorer loads an image, sound file, or movie. If you want a type of file to be automatically loaded, place a check mark in the appropriate box. If you want the images disabled, click to remove the check. Now whenever Internet Explorer loads a document that has images, a small icon will appear where each image is located on the page. If you wish to view the image at that location, right-click on the image area and then select "View Image" from the menu.

No more slow loads if you do this!

Netscape users:

Just like above, but click on EDIT, then choose the Preferences sub-menu.

Depending on which Netscape you have, there may be one or two more steps.

If you see an option called "Automatically load images and other data types", uncheck it.

Otherwise, click on the "Images" category, then check the "Do Not Load Any Images" option.

Then click OK.

This is from the USA Ping List- if you want off this list, you must let me know ( and politeness counts in my book as to the speed with which you are removed ) and mention the name of the list- I can't locate you without a reference.

If you can't contribute- and we all have been there, we all have to put family first- please flag a few names you know, and bump this post.

Come on, we can't let Streisand and her ilk win!

Thanks, but I'd like to be removed from the USA Ping List. Nothing personal, it's just that I'm on too many ping lists now, and I can't visit every thread. Oh, I contributed already.

An excerpt from Grampa Dave's Free Republic Lifeform post:

"This is a wonderful description of what Free Republic really is. It is a living and evolving Life Form to battle the left wingers and those who would destroy this country!...

Free Republic needs a constant infusion of cash to keep the Free Republic Life Form alive, viable and to grow. If we believe in Free Republic, we must donate each month or quarterly to keep this incredible life form alive... Good stewardship is what this world needs, not good intentions. Good conservative stewards will insure that the Free Republic Life Form continues to grow, be viable and thrives!"


The Free Republic Life Form continues to grow and your "infusion" will make a difference and will be greatly appreciated!!


"Donating to Free Republic is the best investment we can make for us, our family and our friends!"

While the image is appealing ( she does get underfoot, as my Mom used to say... ) it's more prosaic that that- she still can't drive the 25 miles to work without excessive discomfort, so I'm the driver. Or as she likes to joke, it makes here equal with the Bishop of Georgia ( her ultimate boss ) as he's the only other one in the diocese with a driver...
