Stand Fast and Firm!

Remember who YOU are, brothers and sisters — who WE are together.

“We should never despair, our Situation before has been unpromising and has changed for the better, so I trust, it will again. If new difficulties arise, we must only put forth new Exertions and proportion our Efforts to the exigency of the times.” —George Washington (1777)

Today, The Patriot Post serves more than a million grassroots activists and grasstop leaders. As a touchstone for our fellow Patriots nationwide, I am acutely aware that many are some combination of angry and depressed about the state of our great nation. I want to offer you a few words of encouragement.

In seasons like this, and there have been plenty and will be others, discouragement can set in — and, unfortunately, support for our publication suffers. Consider how past generations have met challenges. Today is the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, which changed the life of my father and his Greatest Generation. They persevered and defeated tyranny — as we will in this generation.

Despite the fact that we top the list of the best investments you can make in American Liberty, currently we are NOT on track to make our year-end fundraising goal.

We have been on the frontlines defending Liberty for decades and can’t hold that line without Patriots like YOU. Please support our 2022 Year-End Campaign today!

By way of encouragement, let me offer these words.

On behalf of your Patriot Post team, I can tell you that wading through the leftist detritus day after day would indeed be discouraging if we allowed ourselves for even a moment to lose sight of what defines us — eternal Truths, not temporal circumstances.

God is above all!

Let me remind you: You are NOT alone. There are more than 100 million grassroots American Patriots across our nation, and our ranks are growing. The BIG difference between conservative and leftist voters, which is strikingly evident on those large red voter map territories, is that most of those Demos are dullard urban dwellers under the influence of their elitist “white privilege” suburban benefactors — all of whom depend in large measure on working Patriots across our country for their very survival.

Patriots, we have always held the line in dark seasons, and we will overcome the challenges we face today. We will do so with the vigilance, strength, preparedness, resolve, and faith that has sustained generations of American Patriots.

When Samuel Adams signed our Declaration of Independence, he said: “We have this day restored the Sovereign to whom all men ought to be obedient. He reigns in heaven and from the rising to the setting of the sun, let His kingdom come.” Amen.

John Adams declared: “I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the gloom I can see the rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the end is more than worth all the means.”

In 1777, amid a string of defeats in our quest for Liberty — as the fall of Philadelphia and the brutal winter at Valley Forge approached — George Washington wrote his commanders: “We should never despair, our Situation before has been unpromising and has changed for the better, so I trust, it will again. If new difficulties arise, we must only put forth new Exertions and proportion our Efforts to the exigency of the times.”

You are among a very large and formidable body of Americans today, who, “put forth new exertions and proportion our efforts to the exigency of the times.”

Defending American Liberty and our Republic’s Rule of Law has never been easy. The forces of tyranny — the forces of evil — always have been and always will be relentless. We are bound by our “sacred honor.”

Stand fast and firm! Hold the line. Remember who YOU are, brothers and sisters — who WE are together — and from what stock you come.

We are mothers, fathers, and other family members nurturing the next generation of young Patriots. We are farmers, craftsmen, tradesmen, mechanics, millworkers, and industrial producers. We are small- and large-business owners, service providers, and professionals in medicine and law. We are employees and employers. We are consumers and taxpayers. We are in ministry at home and missionaries abroad. We are students and professors at colleges and universities, often standing alone for what is good and right.

We are Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Coast Guardsmen, and Guardians standing in harm’s way at home and around the world, bound by our revered oath “to support and defend” our Constitution and Republic.

We are not defined by race, gender, creed, ethnicity, religion, wealth, education, geography, or political affiliation, which the Left uses to divide the nation.

We are, first and foremost, defined by our affirmation of the unalienable Rights of Man, which are irrevocably endowed by our Creator.

We are Patriot sons and daughters from all walks of life, heirs to the blessings of Liberty bequeathed to us at great personal cost by our Patriot forebears, confirmed in the opinion that it is our duty to God and Country to extend that blessing to our posterity.

We are bound by our “sacred honor” to that end. We will NEVER, NEVER, NEVER give up or give in.

Be heartened by the awesome power that has emboldened Patriots from the dawn of our nation; Patriots who understood, as George Washington declared, “Our cause is noble; it is the cause of all mankind.”

On behalf of your Patriot Post team, if you have not already done so, please support our mission to sustain Liberty today and extend it to the next generation.

God bless our great nation, and God bless each of you and your families!
