Carry on, freepers, you're doing great!

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

"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."
If you want on (or off) of my black conservative ping list, please let me know via FREEPmail. (And no, you don't have to be black to be on the list!)
Extra warning: this is a high-volume ping list.
