...and thank you.
Thank you for stopping by this little roadside stand on a desolate stretch of the unimaginably massive Internet highway whether to read, to comment, or just depart in disgust. 2009 saw a huge spike in readership at Right, Wing Nut!, with each of the last three months (yes, even the dreaded traffic-free month of December...was it the Hanukkah Hotties?) setting a new height in visits. I appreciate it, and I am thankful for each and every one of you.
Some have called 2009 an "Annus horribilis"; I beg to differ. Yes, liberal totalitarianism has taken hold in America, much as many on the right had predicted, with the rise of this nation's first charismatic ideologue. But we need this battle. The arguments against liberalism were lost, defeated by a hateful opposition to George W. Bush and a mainstream media who pounded us every day with leftist propaganda.
What we have gotten, and what we have needed to see firsthand, is how destructive liberalism is in practice. Only with having experienced it, can we be sure of its corrupt and poisonous nature. And thus to save our nation, we must rise up and defeat the Left in a battle that will be virtually unprecedented in American history. We must re-invent the media, we must rise up in anger,we must take to the streets, and we must loosen our tongues against those who profit by and support the regime now in control of the United States.
And we will win this battle. And yes, it will be a costly victory, with decades in economic, scientific, and medical growth lost as we recover from the damage done by the "progressive" agenda. But it is a necessary war - the ideals of the constitution must be re-established, our prominence in international affairs must be re-asserted, and our right-of center national values must be enshrined in every action that is taken in the name of the People of the United States of America.
We live in interesting times. And although that is considered a Chinese curse, it is a blessing as well. We live to join the battle, to fight, to risk, to stand tall for our values against an opposition who would crush us under the banner of socialism. It is an opportunity for us to show what we are made of, to show that our words are more than platitudes, to show we will defend what we have so that the next generation can enjoy the spoils of our victory as well.
Let us relish this battle, and join it with hearts and heads held high. For it is a righteous one, one that will define freedom, democracy, and world peace for the remainder of the 21st century.
May God bless each and every one of you with strength, vigor, and happiness in 2010.
Happy New Year!
