I just noticed that Philo's Restore the Republic hit another milestone: 3,000 hits. That's not much by most folk's standards, but it's cool to me. I've really enjoyed having a place where I can say my piece, a virtual soapbox, and the connections said soapbox has provided. There's something very gratifying about being able to speak openly and freely, and in a medium that allows you to communicate with people around the world. (Now, if I can just get a couple resident trolls, I'll know I've hit the big leagues...)
I think now more than ever it is important for people to stand up and speak loudly, clearly, and forcibly if necessary, about how unique and wonderful our Republic is. We need to do so on the interwebs, at our jobs, with our friends and neighbors. This generation is starting to realize what happens when we stop having that conversation, the chaos and misery that apathy and complacency brings. For far too long this conversation has been dominated by a very vocal minority of leftist ideologues and their sycophants in the popular media. (It's little wonder why they are so hell bent on clamping down on the interwebs..) So lets all say it together, real loud, over and over again:
America! Fuck Yeah!
Thanx to those of you who have visited, and a big hat-tip to those of you who visit frequently and add your own perspective to RtR. I'm talking to you Deiterle, my good friend The Duke, and those of you whom I know visit here often, haven't commented yet, but hopefully will introduce yourselves in the future.
