Sane and sober statesmen have fled the field. Only madmen remain.
Being a responsible citizen in a irresponsible world is hard. Doing your civic duty in a world that values neither civics, nor duty, is hard. Pledging that last full measure of devotion to God, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, duty and honor, and respecting the individual rights of your fellow man in a culture that no longer respects any of these things is hard. Hard, but necessary.

We few, we happy few, echo the spirit of those marched onto the misty morning field of Lexington Green against British steel, struggled in the trenches of France against German guns, buckled the screaming horde at Pusan and Ia Drang, Fallujah, and Kornegal, who now draw the line saying, “this ends here.”

We will not strike first, but we shall assuredly prevail as long as a single free American breathes to fight.
