Thank you to our readers

AS WE STRUGGLE WITH THE STATE OF OUR UNION, OUR READERS STAY THE COURSE

by Sharon Rondeau

The light always follows the darkness

(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.

    The Post and Email has leapt so far ahead of other certain unnamed news websites in the past six months. Mrs. Rondeau was a great choice for TPE Managing Editor. Thank you Mr. Charlton for your judgment, vision, and passion for the truth. No other news site that I am aware of keeps the most important issue facing this country–the usurper in our White House–front and center. May God bless and strengthen you all and the work you do.

    Thank you Sharon, John, and The Post & Email. You folks are the only REAL NEWS SOURCE for true and accurate reporting. I am so tired of Fox News saying that they are “Fair and Balanced”, when they are everything but. One cannot be “Fair and Balanced” if they tote half Conservative Truth, and half Liberal Lies. The Post & Email is truly “Fair and Balanced” because you print only 100% Truthfully Reported News, Balanced by Excellent Research while maintaining 100% Accuracy. That to me now is “Fair and Balanced”. I am going to take you up on your offer, and subscribe to the “Editor’s Note” . Sounds like a good way to keep in touch, and the price is certainly right. “THANK YOU for ALL YOUR GREAT WORK”.

    To respond in kind…THANK YOU for your courage, your integrity, your love for the things worth loving, and for that attitude so nicely portrayed in this letter that says it takes MANY of us working together to steer this ship called “America” back out to open water and freedom. One of the most arrogant and irritating things about government and the so-called mainstream media today is an elitist, superior “we have a corner on wisdom and everyone should be forced to listen to us” attitude. I find none of that here.
    So many times in the past few months I have been ready to give up and pronounce the America we grew up with dead in the water and gone for ever. And then I click on that black capitol “P E” in a white square icon on my desktop and get a little hope that freedom still rings in the hearts of some and they are hard at work figuring out a way to put a crack in what seems to be a solid wall of corruption Obama and his handlers have carefully built. I believe as I know you do, that one little crack, one tiny — little — crack someday will cause that wall to begin to collapse. And I also believe that even if Post and Email isn’t responsible for starting that crack, you at the very least will be one of the first to alert people to the idea there is a weak spot in the Obama Wall and a good place to start hammering away at. Thank you, John and Sharon and to all concerned for not letting go of that.
    God Bless, Stay Strong.

    Your articles are the best in-depth interviews I have seen, with truly relevant and thought-provoking questions. I would encourage you to encourage readers to be your “distributors” and design your pages in such a way that people can print off and distribute you as “the daily news.”

    We have no newspapers anymore, but the “citizen journalists” and “citizen printers” could really make an impact.

    I have not tried printing your newspaper, as I have to go to the library…but I think many readers are set up, and I do not know if your format comes of well when printed for distribution. You could maybe have printible “daily flyers” for distributing your latest articles in a professional newspaper style, that might not have the “internet headings” that might confuse readers not usually on the internet. It is that part of the population that is slow to catch on to what is going on, and they only trust regular media, which of course cannot be trusted anymore.

    Just some thoughts…not sure how doable or good!

    Thanks for your great paper.

    Fresh from high school I became a college student at the age of 17 and enrolled in my first journalism class. Back then the phrase “yellow journalism” meant something. Today it proliferates on the internet with bloggers, reporters, media commentators everywhere slanting the news to fit their personal agendas and getting a pass from each other to do it. It is nice to find a newsletter in which the publisher says first and foremost that the articles are oriented toward the truth.

    There is little truth in the mainstream media these days and misinformation is everywhere. Please continue to avoid yellow journalism and slanted and biased reporting.

    Thanks to the Post & email for publishing the truth. The voters demand and have a right to know what’s going on and then a responsibility to act upon it.

    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

    Thank you for writing that and know that The Post & Email is a beacon on the bay in exposing the truth about the ‘squatter’ in the White House. Thank you for all you do.
