The Troubled Patriot - December Update

The end of the year is upon us. The birds have flown south for the winter and the snowbirds have followed suit. The leaves have abandoned their branches, and the water parks are all closed up. However, I'm still here!

Last month was somewhat interesting with all the health care news from the Senate. Also, we learned some more interesting facts about the so called "religion of peace" while discovering the joys of pipe smoking from my personal perspective.

This month will mostly be a reflection upon Christmas and the holiday season. I plan on writing a few Christian entries in the honor of Christ. These may not necessarily be political, per say, but will express my thoughts and beliefs concerning my faith. These will be in addition to what is commonly posted.

Today I spent some time reflecting on the traffic to this blog. I've stumbled on to some unexpected sources. I've also realized that, in a small way, what is being written here is making a difference. It's not large, but it's enough to keep me motivated - to keep me writing.

I confess that at times I've felt somewhat despondent. I sometimes I feel as if I'm writing into a vacuum, and that the efforts of research and wording are going to waste. Yet as I seriously ponder that thought, I come to a realization. It doesn't matter who agrees with me, who follows me, or what have you. I do not write out of a desire to seek fame, but out of a desire to bring truth from chaos. I want to cut through all the neutered PC garbage spewed forth from the mainstream media and delve right to the point. I write because I have to. If I didn't, I'd probably end up drinking myself into oblivion!

The fact of the matter is this - I'm angry. I'm angry and upset at how the name of this good country is being tarnish and smothered in the filth of political correctness. I'm tired of Obama apologizing for this country when we have absolutely nothing to apologize for! I'm tired of the fascist/commnuist politicians, educators, and tree hugging hippies who are trying to tear this nation down around us. They want to erect something that no true American can recognize. While doing this, they are viciously attacking the "old guard," whom are you and I.

My response to them is to write. I'm not afraid to say it as it really is, and I won't pull my punches either. If you are out there hurting this nation, attacking good people and trying to remove our liberties, I'll call you on it. I don't care if you're the President or some person living out of a cardboard box. I don't care what political party you affiliate yourself with. On this blog, social position means nothing. Actions mean everything. Character, above all, is what is important.

To those of you who are regular readers, and most especially to those of you who have subscribed, I thank you. I know that you may not agree with me 100% on what I say (I'll forgive you, we all have our faults!), but I do apprecaite your support. To those who have referred friends and families here, bless you!

In closing, I ask that we all take time this month to reflect on God and family. There is a much overused slogan that states "Jesus is the reason for the season," yet it's true. Christmas isn't about Santa Clause, snowmen, reindeer, elves, trees, ham or Christmas Lights. Christmas is about the ultimate gift given to us by God. Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus - God in the flesh. It celebrates what Jesus did for us by becoming the ultimate sacrifice for our sins, who by one action, gave us the opportunity to be free. In response, I ask that you take the time to tell those who are important to you how much you love them. And when you and your children spend December 25th unwrapping presents, remember the present that was given to you 2,000 years ago.

Merry Christmas and God bless!
