    We are the Free Republic Pre-War on Terror Class of Freepers. Having been a freeper for over a decade, and having experienced both a pre 9/11 presence here and a post 9/11 presence, having experienced the Hanging Chad Wars of GW's first election, Sore Loserman and all, what stands out for you regarding the growth of Free Republic over the years. What are your thoughts on the independence of Free Republic, and Jim Robinson's decision to go advertisement free all these years. My first thought is that his financial independence is what has freed him to tell the GOP-E to...

    The Hollywood Reporter ^ | Saturday, April 28, 2012 | Paul Bond
    A dozen conservative activists interacted with dinner attendees including Woody Harrelson and Chris Matthews. As the nation’s elite journalists arrived at the Washington Hilton to hobnob with President Obama at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, many were met by a small group of protesters shouting "don't believe the liberal press" and holding signs adorned with photos of deceased conservative activist Andrew Breitbart. A few notable attendees politely mixed it up a bit with the protesters, who also shouted accusations of hypocrisy at the well-dressed journalists and Hollywood celebrities. Protester Kevin Martin asked MSNBC host Chris Matthews why he wasn't driven...

            WINNERS vs LOSERS When a winner makes a mistake, he says, “I was wrong.” When a loser makes a mistake, he says, “It wasn’t my fault.” A winner always gives 110% no matter how big or small the task. A loser is always “too busy” to do what is necessary and finds excuses. A winner goes through a problem. A loser goes around it, and never gets past it. A winner makes commitments. A loser makes promises. A winner says, “I’m good, but not as good as I ought to be.” A loser says, “I’m...

    Free Republic, the original conservative web board protests the White House Correspondents Dinner every year. (In previous cycles, they've been joined by the not-very-blendable activists of Code Pink. They still pop up in photos of congressional hearings, and Medea Benjamin isn't a pauper, so they'll probably surface again.) Our theme this year, in tribute to our late fellow FReeper, andrew, is Breitbart is Here. We are asking participants to wear Breitbart is Here t-shirts and/or carry Breitbart is Here posters for the demonstration.SNIPBreitbart is Here video tribute.

            PERSEVERANCE The idea of perseverance is an important component in athletics, the military, studies, and even in religion. Perseverance is the master key, the secret of success when you are in the middle of the struggle. It is that extra, the second air, the capacity to overcome the discouragement. Our society is making a lot of progress. We have technology and facilities that no one in history ever had before. The new generations can grow up today more healthy, and live longer. But we do have an Achilles' heel: the absence of the spirit of...

    Maybe others can answer more concisely, but I believe we need a place where like-minded traditional conservatives can meet to discuss and advocate for our pro-life, pro-liberty, pro-constitution, pro-traditional American conservative values, principles and causes--without being hounded and attacked by leftists, "moderates" and other naysayers, doubters, doom & gloomers, malcontents or trolls who would either outright destroy our liberty and our way of life, surrender it, or otherwise nibble away at it in bits and bites. Free Republic has been just that for fifteen years!! We wholeheartedly and steadfastly believe in and defend our founding principles and our traditional American...
