On the long drive home Tuesday night, over a 10,000 foot pass, and through the crisp autumn air with the windows rolled down, I thought of the bridge we Patriots are building from the past, through now, and to the future.
Each investigative article, each network exposed, each politician disrobed, each strategy identified, is a crossing: a barrier understood and overcome, the elements of strategy appearing. We have used the timbers of our research, investigative skills, and our networking ability, to lay the foundation for the crossing. In the process we have grown as individuals, as a community of Patriots, and as Americans.

The 912 march
Even in a crowd of nearly 2 million people in the 912 march, everyone looked familiar to me, like I’d seen them before. I understand now that this familiarity is the energy of patriotism carried over centuries, having laid dormant in our hearts until our country called–now as it did then.
This march was also a crossing of another kind, a bridge across the country, the gigantic ‘thud’ of the Patriots’ cannonball stinging message, landing on the Capitol and White House grounds, still sizzling. You know that sound resonates right now in those hallways. 😛
There are indeed ‘many rivers to cross’ in our journey. But we are not alone, we have diamonds on the soles of our shoes, and the fire of patriotism and love of country burning in our hearts. That is something the opposition does not have.
