To be honest, I can think of little to be happy about this evening. Our nation is on the verge of what appears to be a deliberately-caused economic collapse, and our personal freedoms are being chainsawed away by the same administration to a chorus of cheers from the news and entertainment media, and a disturbingly large number of what, for want of a better term, I shall call “citizens of the United States”.
Let us celebrate this, then: a common goal. To achieve through voting and by educating others, the restoration of United States as the bastion of individual freedom, personal responsibility, real education and prosperity in world. It will be a difficult fight, and to be honest, I believe that the weight of history is against us. But we must not forget what it was that made us unique: we are not a nation born of a single geographical demarcation or ethnic grouping. We are one from the many. If any nation could ever break the descent into totalitarianism, it is us.
Let us make a Happy New Year. Godspeed.
