"If men of wisdom and knowledge, of moderation and temperance, of patience, fortitude and perseverance, of sobriety and true republican simplicity of manners, of zeal for the honour of the Supreme Being and the welfare of the commonwealth; if men possessed of these other excellent qualities are chosen to fill the seats of government, we may expect that our affairs will rest on a solid and permanent foundation." --Samuel Adams (1780)
Independence Day fell midweek this year, which is when most of our editorial assignments are distributed for the week. This has been a particularly demanding year for your Patriot Team and, thus, I made the decision to give our staff and volunteer support personnel a much needed day off on Wednesday. That means the editing schedule for today's Digest was interrupted, but we will return to our regular publishing schedule Monday.
However, the boss did not take Wednesday off -- so if you missed it, read "The Imperial Executive."
We also invite you to visit our Patriot Headline Report for news and opinion that matters most.
Our editorial team evaluates hundreds of reputable news sources each day for key headlines that are relevant to Liberty. We post links to these headlines 24 hours a day on our Patriot Headline Report -- and we list these links in easy-to-scan topical categories, which we believe is a more useful arrangement than can be found on any other headline aggregator page.
We also invite you to help us produce the Heartland News section of the Report, where we identify important local media news that may not make the national syndicates. Please use our Heartland Suggest a Headline link next to the Heartland section to suggest news tips.
Of course, the Patriot Headline Report is both free of charge and free of advertising clutter, so it's always clean and easy to navigate. Our new Patriot site offers much more than our unique daily editions and archives -- it also has one of the most extensive Historic Documents pages on the Internet, and many other resources.
In addition to the day's top news, our editorial team evaluates and selects the nationally syndicated columnists whose essays represent the best conservative opinion on the Web. If you're looking for the Right commentary, you can find it every day at The Right Opinion.
Finally, fellow Patriots, you are our best promoters. The most effective method for reaching an ever-larger number of Americans with our weekly news and policy analysis is for you to introduce others to the messenger. Please share The Patriot Post with your family, friends and colleagues, and encourage them to subscribe. In this way, you can help us spread the flame of Liberty far and wide.
Thank you, Patriot, for all you do to support Liberty. The battle to sustain Liberty requires all of us doing our own part on the frontlines against rising tyranny, and we are proud to hold that line with you!
