Greetings, fellow Freepers, lurkers, Patriots, and all USA-loving folks!
This is the new media speaking, and we are growing faster than a pond full of guppies. The old media is deadthey just dont know it yet. But they are starting to sense it, and are panicking.
The genie is out of the bottle. The internet now has hundreds of millions of fact-checkers, lie detectors, and cool brainiacs in their pajamas, laughing our butts off at the lame attempts of the journalism majors on TV to spin things their way.
The media wing of the democrat party is dying. CBS, ABC, NBC, all except FOX are tanking in their ratings, losing money, and dying a slow, welcome death.
Who broke the Dan Rather phony document story? One of our braniacs here, in pajamas, Buckhead. The th heard round-the-world ignited blew Dan out of the water in a couple of hours.
For those of you new here, this is not uncommon. Free Republic has over 100,000 registered users, and a whole lot more than that come here every day. We have scientists, brilliant PhDs, gun owners, good-ole-small business owners, Capitalists, meat-eaters, and some of the most brilliant in the media. Yes, they lurk here, too. They know that Free Republic breaks stories faster, and more accurately, than any site, or any media, in the world.
Thanks to Jim Robinson, the founder. He was sick of the Clinton lies and crimes, and did something about it. He started this site. At first it barely survived, and Jim put his money where his mouth is. He almost lost his house. Some of us early folks here remember mailing checks in, to keep it running. We knew how important this place is, and now the world knows.
Feel like throwing a brick through your TV every time you watch CNN? Do something about it. Dont just lurk, jump in with us. Become part of history, and tell your grandkids you were one of the early supporters. Yes, this is early. Very early. Believe it or not, this site is only 6 years old. When you look back in 20 years, you will be proud to have been a part of the founding.
Please join us, and contribute. Do it by credit card. Become a monthly donorjust send $3 a month. Thats all it takes. Think your $3 a month wont make a difference? You are wrong. It makes all the difference in the world. Just like this site. And when you see your name on the monthly donor list, you will feel so proud! Its amazing how it lifts you up, to know that you are making a difference.
I know that for some of you, even that small amount hurts. Ive been there, believe me. But when you see that line item in your credit card bill every month, you will smile from ear-to-ear, and know that you are actually making a difference in this screwed-up world.
Come on in, and join us, and lets change the world!
I just gave $25
Very cool! Feels good, doesn't it?
I noticed that amount went from 54K to 60K. Is this to cover the cost of the new servers? I hope so.
Donate monthly. Don't be a Freeploader.
That's Great fooman. But have you ever considered that you could became an $8.00 monthly donor for less? And that if enough people divided the quarterly donation that they faithfully give, into thirds and became an automatic monthly donor of that third, quarterly fund raisers would become extinct?
Every cent from those who donate during quarterly fund drives is truely appreciated and the donor treasured. Their loyalty to Free Republic and it's message is obvious and unquestionable. But just a few more quarterly donors, pledging their same quarterly amounts as monthly donations, would make these fund raisers obslete.
Just a thought offered up for consideration.
Ol' F.J. Mitchell
That last sentence should have said, pledging a third of their quarterly donation monthly.
Words are such sneaky little bastards!
I clicked on the secure site link to pay by credit card, but kept getting error messages. ???
I would rather pay a yearly amount as I hate paying monthly. Is that a problem?
