I am writing you today for two reasons.
First, I have heard from many Patriots who remain very disheartened about the election and direction of our country. I have also heard from many who appreciated the words of encouragement in Thursday's column, "We're Back in the FIGHT!," and have forwarded those to family and friends. That message is reprinted below so please forward them to others who need encouragement.
Second, I wanted to send you the most current county-by-county election map, which clearly reveals what state election maps don't, and what Obama and his Leftist cadres do NOT want you to contemplate. It shows where Leftist constituencies reside. (By the way, we have taken the Liberty to correct the colors -- red is a much more fitting color for the Leftist strongholds.)
The assault on Liberty we witnessed Tuesday, as was the case in 2008, was led primarily by those on urban "ObamaNation Plantations," those who depend on what Obama calls "redistributive justice" from the rest of us in order to survive. They account for almost 60 (SIXTY) percent of Obama's constituents, and Socialist Democrats are masters of co-opting (read: "buying") their allegiance and getting them to the polls. The good news is that about 10 million fewer Obama voters showed up in 2012, despite his billion-dollar campaign.
Words of Encouragement
Patriots, we were dealt an awful body blow on Tuesday, and the odds we face in our quest to restore Liberty and Rule of Law enshrined in our Declaration and Constitution may seem insurmountable. However, we can find strength and encouragement in the words from the most noble of Founding Patriots, George Washington.
In 1777, at a very dark moment amid a string of defeats in the first quest for Liberty -- and just before the fall of Philadelphia and the brutal Winter at Valley Forge, Washington wrote one of his generals: "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."
I also recall the words of Thomas Paine from his Revolutionary pamphlet, The American Crisis: "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman."
When Samuel Adams signed the Declaration, 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."
Indeed, God is Sovereign in the affairs of men.
As for the challenges we face, faithful Patriots, hold fast to this wisdom from James 1:2-4: "Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."
(Some among our Patriot ranks are not Christians, but we know your devotion to Liberty is strong. However, everyone on your Patriot Post team here is a devoted Christian, and the bottom line -- you can bank on our faith, even if you don't share it.)
Patriots, we have lost a battle -- but not the war. Hold your head high and redouble your courage and resolve. Remain steadfast in your devotion to Liberty and hold the line. As Paine wrote, "Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. ... I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death."
It has taken generations for our nation to get into the ditch we are in now. It will take more than a few election cycles to pull it out. But there has been a great awakening among Patriots, and our ranks have grown rapidly in recent years.
Our fight for the eternal cause of Liberty, as "endowed by our Creator," ends only with our last breath.
On behalf of your Patriot Post Team, God bless our great nation and God bless each of you among our Patriot ranks!
