The Bedrock Defenders of Liberty
"Our cause is noble... Let us therefore animate and encourage each other."
“Our country is in danger, but not to be despaired. Our enemies are numerous and powerful; but we have many friends, determining to be free, and heaven and earth will aid the resolution. On you depend the fortunes of America. You are to decide the important question, on which rest the happiness and liberty of millions yet unborn. Act worthy of yourselves.” —Joseph Warren (1775)
Ahead of the contentious midterm elections earlier this month, we published a comprehensive list of the Trump administration’s extraordinary domestic and foreign policy achievements. Despite that strong record, I pondered rhetorically whether Democrats would vote against peace and prosperity.
They did, of course, but in numbers that were not nearly as devastating for Republicans as they were for two previous Democrat administrations: In their respective first midterm elections, Bill Clinton lost 52 House seats and eight Senate seats, while Barack Obama lost 63 House seats and six Senate seats.
That “Hate Trump” platform was all Democrats had, but they managed to defeat some very capable Republicans in close Senate, House, and gubernatorial campaigns. Notably, Demo leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer promoted socialist candidates in order to rally their embittered constituents.
The former constitutes their frontline public-relations effort to undermine Liberty and constitutional Rule of Law. As Donald Trump noted recently, the “fake news” media’s abject bias and constant assault on freedom makes it a formidable “enemy of the people.”
The latter, however, is equally foreboding, as the Left now enjoys a sizable stable of leftist billionaires who constitute the “Archenemies of Liberty.”
While it may seem that “billionaire socialists” is an oxymoron, it’s really not. The fact is, politically, as with financially, George Soros, Tom Steyer, Jeff Bezos, and Michael Bloomberg — the “Big Four” foes of Liberty — share an insatiable narcissistic quest for power. The ultimate prize of that quest is centralized government power, which they control by way of their political beneficiaries in office.
Thus, the combination of the Demo/MSM and their big-bucks benefactors forms the greatest domestic threat to Liberty in our nation’s history.
However, we should keep in front of us that the Left’s statist objectives are temporal.
The Patriot Post is the most effective way to counterpunch these adversaries.
Our mission and operations budget is a split fraction of the resources available to leftist organizations and their Leftmedia advocates. But we reach the most influential conservative leaders with the most practical and applicable message of Liberty, which our audience of gatekeepers then promote to their grassroots constituents across the nation.
Our constituents are grassroots American Patriots — the bedrock defenders of our nation’s legacy of Liberty.
Today, we are a primary Liberty touchstone for a groundswell of grassroots conservatives, and we remain the most cost-effective conservative force multiplier on the Web. Help us grow the ranks of American Patriots with your support for our all-important 2018 Year-End Campaign.
In the words of George Washington, “Our cause is noble; it is the cause of all mankind! … Let us therefore rely upon the goodness of the Cause, and the aid of the supreme Being, in whose hands Victory is, to animate and encourage us to great and noble Actions.”
I’ll be sending you a special message tomorrow, “A Pause in Gratitude and Thanksgiving,” with links to additional historical and inspirational content.
As always, please join us in daily prayer for our Patriots in uniform — Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen — standing in harm’s way in defense of Liberty, and for their families.
