AS WE STRUGGLE WITH THE STATE OF OUR UNION, OUR READERS STAY THE COURSE
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jul. 10, 2010) — I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone for your tremendous support since The Post & Email was officially founded as an electronic newspaper on December 1, 2009.
We believe that this is a special place for patriots who are loyal to the U.S. Constitution, an online community working hard to right this listing ship called the United States of America.
I am inspired daily by every one of you who sends me news tips, editorials, and bits of humor. My strength is renewed by those who are actively engaged in the process of restoring constitutional principles throughout this land so that our children and grandchildren might live free.
It is not just money that keeps us going. It is the participation, prayers, assistance and moral support from our readers which have made John Charlton’s vision of a citizen-driven news site a reality.
For those who might never have read it, here is Mr. Charlton’s initial introduction of who we are:
The electronic newspaper, The Post & Email (www.thepostemail.com) is a new media initiative of American patriots, aimed at breaking the blockade imposed by the Main Stream Media in the last election cycle. We are a group of citizen-journalists, collaborating to create a new model for news publication in which citizens from all over the nation and world can submit reports and speak the truth without the restrictions or doctrinaire principles of Socialism and Marxism. We are committed to a Free Press for a New Generation, of the people, by the people, and for the people.
Our desire to find and disseminate the truth grows with each day, and we at The Post & Email are humbled by the loyalty of those we serve.
Today for some reason my mind went back to grade school in the 1960s, which was another turbulent time in our country. But there was no question that the Pledge of Allegiance would be recited in school each morning. The teachers spoke out about right vs. wrong. Parents actually disciplined their children, and if you made a mistake, you were taught to take responsibility for it. When we look at where we are today, however, it is obvious that there is much work to do in reclaiming our heritage as boldly proud Americans.
Now, there is a new responsibility. Each one of us has to shoulder our part of the job of reclaiming and reinstilling American principles and values: that there is right vs. wrong, evil vs. good, that all men are created equal, and that the American dream is still our ideal, accomplished by hard work, not government handouts. That can be made possible only if we fight for our God-given rights and refuse to let man rule us. Just like the Founders, we need to act, think and speak as free men and women, gleaning our strength from a power much stronger than we.
Through these hard times, some tremendous patriot leaders are emerging, just as they did in 1776.
Two months before he passed away last year, Alan Stang wrote an article entitled “Why We Shall Win and How I Know” which should be mandatory reading for every American looking to restore America to her former greatness. With encouragement like that, how can we fail?
With your help, we will continue to grow. Please invite your friends to this place where we can all gather and celebrate, in advance, the light that we will inevitably reach at the end of this long, dark tunnel. You, our readers, will keep this publication alive.
Editor’s Note: For those who might not have noticed, there is a new “Subscribe” button in the middle of the right column of the site for anyone who would like to receive the Sunday evening “Editor’s Note,” which is an early scoop on the news of the upcoming week. The subscription for the service is $15.00/year.
