FReepers with Inquisitive Minds Needed
Citizens for Fair and Balanced Funding | 02/20/2003 | dware

Posted on 02/20/2003 12:08:22 PM PST by dware

Do you have an inquisitive mind? How about a background in corporate research? If so, and you'd like to put it to work for Free Republic, I would like to invite you to join the FR "Citizens for Fair and Balanced Funding" (CFBF) Committee.

CFBF conducts research into the activities, programs, funding and key individuals of the various groups & organizations that provide financial & other support to anti-American causes. A good example of an organization being researched is ANSWER & their parent organization, the People's Rights Fund.

In many cases, these organizations knowingly violate IRS requirements for non-profit 501(c)3 status by misrepresenting their purpose and/or activities to the IRS. In some cases, they also represent a deeper threat to the American way of life by supporting explicit anti-American organizations.

The purpose of CFBF is to expose these organizations, the corporations/foundations/individuals that derive certain tax benefits from supporting their causes and the individuals who run them. By doing so, it is our hopes that we can create a better balance in funding of other non-profit causes.

We need your help to accomplish our objectives. We are currently seeking individuals who are willing to volunteer as little or as much time as they choose to participate in the CFBF Committee. Members will be asked to conduct research into these organizations, rally public support for boycotts against their funders and garner support from various media outlets in an effort to expose the organizations for what they are in too many cases - anti-American.

Volunteers will be given access to a private forum where CFBF activities will be staged. They will also be given access to 1,000's of resources to help complete our objectives.

If you are interested, please FReepmail dware with your email address and FR screenname, or email your info to warehouse@gvii.net

Thanks for your time and help in this important matter. It seems a monumental task, but if history serves us here at FR, it CAN be done.

If you've ever wanted to learn how to "find out anything about anybody", this is your chance. And you won't have to buy some bogus software to do it.

Thanks in advance for your help.

By the way, you don't need any experience. It helps to have some, but all experience levels are more than welcome to help. Training & research guidelines will be supplied to all CFBF Committee members.

I have experience in research, medical and legal mostly, but have done a lot of digging in records and online through the years. I'd love to help, plus, I have the time.

BTW, this is my first post ever even though I've lurked for many years.

Another bump... So does this lack of discussion mean there aren't any other inquisitive freepers out there? Perhaps we should call this the He-Man Hillary-Haters Club ;-)

IMHO, All we would have to do to defund the LEFT is to enforce the laws that are currently on the books for organizations that are funded by tax dollars. The Federal Government funds all of the most radical leftist groups in this country and they have been violating the law for decades when it comes to political activism. Where would NPR be if the Government didn’t fund them?

What we need is to enforce the laws on the books and political climate to stand up against these leftist who have been in control for way too long.

That day is coming... And if we stay on message and ignore the constant attempts from the left to divide us, it will come sooner rather than later. We must always remember that this country was taken away from by the liberals one step at a time and we have to take it back in the same fashion or the general (uniformed) public will never be with us if we try to change things overnight. We have to focus on the long run and not immediate gratification if we plan to win this country back.

I have never seen the left in this country this divided in my life. I believe what we are witnessing sheer desperation from the democRATS and the left these days and if we are able to refrain from stooping to their level by responding to their juvenile attacks on President Bush, They will self destruct. The 2002 mid-term election are proof of this.

I say ignore the left and focus on the future and the great people of this country will follow our lead. Lets not join the liberals in their pit of despair. The future belongs to those who see the glass as half full.... not half empty

Good point. All dware is doing is documenting the illegality of these leftist organizations.

I understand that and I agree with dware 100%, We need to discuss these issues more often and quit allowing the left to control the debate. So many times here on FR I see someone posting an article form a liberal rag like the NYT's that is clearly written in an attempt to divide us and we trash each other. We need more people like dware who raise these issues so that we can unite against the true threat to our success, and that's the anti-American leftist who are desperately trying to regain power.

CJ, We all must stay focused on the big picture and prevent the left from poisoning the minds of our children. If we have no other obligation to this idea we call America, It’s to see that our kids understand what made this country so great, and it's not the ideals the left espouse

I live in a small town, and there is little/none of these sort of organizations. It sounds intriguing, but I just don't fit in the puzzle.

I wish ya luck though. Sounds very interesting.
