Today with a sweet little blog icon, WordPress notified me that I opened this blog one year ago!
After finding a niche on Twitter and a following of several thousand, last April I decided to give blogging a try, settling with WordPress. Hoping it would prove an effective media to combat the leftist media bias, it proved to be a medium even more important than had been anticipated. A year later some great stats surpassing my hopes include 131 blog followers and several mentions by the New Mexico mainstream media during and since the 2013 state legislative session.
The greatest thing this and blog has taught me is that standing for what is just and truthful may not be easy or even the ‘winning’ thing to do, yet it will win in the end (in some form) and doing right has it’s own reward:
Stand For Right
Against The Wrong
Courage brother, do not waver,
Stand for right though with a few,
Wrong is wrong though guilded over,
To yourself and God be true.
You are not alone in battle.,
Though a curtain hides the throng,
Gideon’s hosts are on the hill top,
They will help to conquer wrong.
Wrong may triumph for a moment,
But as sure as God is right,
Truth at last prevaileth ever
Over falsehood and its blight.
As the angels guard us ever
In His own good time some day,
If we’re right we’ll win the battle,
As we labor, wait and pray.
Then be brave and do not falter
We are with you though unknown,
For as God our hairs has numbered
He will thus protect His own.
There are brighter days to greet you
Higher planes you yet may find,
If for truth you stand undaunted,
Leaving wrong and greed behind.
Onward, press, the wrong will vanish
And the sun will shine again,
Making glad the heart discouraged
By the plotter and his gang,
They cannot deceive the masses
Of the people brave and true.
Then take hope and courage, brother,
They will surely stand by you.

Whether writing about a Twitter fight between members of the left and conservatives, sharing an overwhelming election day experience at the polls, documenting the actions of Republicans as they cave to support gun control in New Mexico, or confronting the City of Santa Fe as they go back on their word to gun buy-back participants, there have been no shortage of engaging topics to write about– actually many more things than I had expected!

Being a voice for truth is why this blog is here, which includes documenting the wrong and encouraging the righteous to take a stand on their own.
