Sorry all to have disappeared. A few too many late nights last week caught up with me and I came down with some kind of a bug. I'm still trying to play ketchup on the first thread.
Please consider the following words as you make your decision:

"A lot of people come to FreeRepublic on a daily basis for their news. Strangely, many of them never stop to think about how this site is paid for. Many have no idea that FreeRepublic is fully funded by the people who use the site.
If everyone who was registered donated $1 a month, we'd never have to have a fund raiser. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen. Some people think their $5 or $10 wouldn't make a difference, but it would."

"...These are not the people we are appealing to, it's those that don't think twice about logging in here. If we could get everyone of them to kick in $12 once a year - we'd be done with the FReepathons."

"While large donations are great, often it is the small ones that are sacrificial and inspiring.
Every penny that is donated is greatly appreciated and helps to pay the bills.
Those who are not in a position right now to donate can still make an important contribution by bumping this thread or pinging others to it."

"...You state perfectly what the FReepathons are all about. If more of us gave a small amount on a regular monthly basis, we would never have to hold them.
I believe that 99% of the registered FReepers would never miss a monthly donation of $5.00 a month. At the same time, all of us honor our FReeper friends who might be in difficult financial straits and are happy to carry the burden for them."

"We have to stay vigilant, we have to fight, we can not let the RATS destroy our Republic!
We have made a difference. Free Republic is that tool for us to gather, meet like minded individuals and fight for all we believe. Keep this web site running. The liberals hate us, so we must be on the right track!"

"We must keep Free Republic strong, growing and ready for all the future tricks by the dark sides! There is only one way to do that.
We must share some of our treasure that the Lord has loaned to us with Free Republic. It is that simple!"

" would i rather do without one large pizza a month?
...or do without Free Republic for a month.
...easy enough decision, it's easy to contribute...
and it's so much less fattening than that pizza."

"You are the backbone of the Free Republic. Freeper is a very proud name. Stand tall, put your chest out, and know that your country knows you care. You are one of a very elite, very small percentage (2%) who care enough to help. God Bless you. Our country needs you, and the Free Republic knows you are the heart and soul of America."
Let me put it this, I can at least sit up today. I was barely able to walk down the stairs yesterday from sweats and chills. I HATE being sick.
Thank you for asking
