Skip to comments.How we have, and can, change the world (vanity)
Posted on 04/12/2003 7:12:48 AM PDT by MonroeDNA
I am not part of the fundraiser here. Just an ordinary American, who believes in individual Liberty, and Freedom.
I guess I've been around here for about 5 years or so now. Time sure flies!
When Jim Robinson started this site, it was because he was fed up with the liberal media, and how they would not let people worldwide know about the corruption of the Clinton Administration. A few of us, equally concerned, (with great luck) found it fast.
In the early days, FR was a day-to-day operation, always on the brink of bankruptcy. Jim kept on, and we chipped in when it became too much. We knew how important this site was, and is. Sometimes, it came down to the wire, and we wrote checks, and sent them in, as best we could.
Look at it now. We all get our best information from this site. It is huge, with thousands of posters, and millions of readers. Yet Jim still keeps it alive because of his conviction, and he is absolutely NOT making a profit on it. He just believes. As do we.
BTW, did you know that the founder of this site is in a wheelchair (sorry Jim; I know you think it doesn't make a r*ts a$$ difference. Hey, some folks out there need to come down a peg, like I have.).
Think of it! In the darkest days of the Clinton Administration, there was a lone internet site where people with integrity, brains, and sheer gumption could discuss the dangers faced by the US. Not on CNN, for sure.
Earthmovers like Drudge, Ann Coulter, Rush, WFBuckley, his brother, Savage, Buchanan, both houses of Congress (many) check in to see what we think.
The opposition checks it out, too. Like the NY times staff, CNN, etc. Trust me, they all come here to read. Even YOUR post. You know by now how they are whining about Rush? We're next, as soon as they figure out how they can trash this site without it getting a million hits.
I've been broke; I've been not broke. I've slept in my car. I know how it feels to be squeezed tight with bills. Folks with giant bills: You're not alone, and you have friends here. :)
If you love this site as much as I do, please, please sign up for automatic payment of just $3 per month. Don't be embarrassed if you think this is too little. It absolutely is not. You $3 a month folks are our grassroots movement heroes. Be proud. Become one of the thousand points of light here, and you will so feel proud every month. We'll thank you for it, and are so glad to have you on board.
I know things are rough out there. But you are tough, and a member of the greatest grassroots freedom movement in 100 years. Together we are making history, and will change the world, as we already have. The best is yet to come.
Many countries out there would consider this website illegal. They hate us, for our freedom. Their systems cannot stand, in the face of Freedom. The people there read us when they can, when they are allowed to, and are not being tortured. They flock to us, America, because they want to be free. Help us help them.
Would you please, please consider signing up for just $3 a month? Please? Thats all it takes, really, believe it or not. You will make a world of difference, to, well, the world. Be proud, Americans, and please help out!

I echo MonroeDNA's suggestion to sign up for a monthly donation - no matter how small. Remember, with the success of President Bush, the LIEberals are getting more and more desperate. Desperate people do desperate things when cornered so we have to be prepared. We HAVE to keep FR up and running to counter any and all desperate acts of the anti-America left.
Thanks to the Good Freepers like you, Rotti Biz and Ed Reform, the monthly donor thing is catching on. The last Freepathon, we had a huge jump in monthly donors and $'s pledged. This Freepathon is headed in that direction.
One can only dream of the impact if at least 10% of Freepers were monthly donors. We are headed in the right direction.

Any FReeper or Lurker who makes a regular monthly donation to Free Republic by credit card, check, or PayPal may add his/her screen name to this list by simply FReepmailing the message "I am a monthly donor" to me or just declaring themselves on the FReepathon thread.
This list is completely voluntary. No name is added without permission. The list is posted periodically during fundraisers on the FReepathon thread.
We want to see this list expand until we have thousands of FReepers and Lurkers to make certain that Free Republic, the best conservative website on the Internet, will continue to be here and grow. Thank you all for your support!
