It’s April 19, and I’m hanging out at a Denver bloggers convention sponsored by a group named after one of the Founding generation’s most vocal patriots.
The coincidence? It was 233 years ago today that a band of ragtag patriots on Lexington Green fired the “shot heard ’round the world” that eventually defeated the army of the world’s most powerful empire. (Pictures up at Slapstick Politics, who beat me to the idea.)
And here today in Denver is a band of ragtag pro-freedom bloggers, ready to counter the heavily-funded Left-wing statists who are working to turn Colorado blue.

It was good to meet the other bloggers in Colorado. I wanted to let you know I’ve added you to my blogroll. I’m relatively new to the local blogging scene and hope to learn much from you and others.

“The coincidence? It was 233 years ago today that a band of ragtag patriots on Lexington Green fired the â€œshot heard â€™round the worldâ€ that eventually defeated the army of the worldâ€™s most powerful empire.”
‘N then the nation they founded became th’ world’s most powerful empire, somethin’ that wud have upset most-a them patriots.
“A republic, if you can keep it.”
By 1861, Washington DC had become London. Today it is Rome.
Now, ol’ S. Jones is certainly fir th’ American Reverlution (and esp. proud of the role Southrons played in it). ‘N he’s certainly fir th’ conservative cause, ‘n th’ role this here new media plays thar-in. But it simply ain’t th’ case that alot of y’all are true t’ th’ ideals of th’ reverlution. Yir of yir father Abraham, ‘n ‘ccordin’ly ain’t no real seed of t’ republicans that founded this here nation, despite th’ name of most-a y’all’s political party. I kin say with certainty that Republicanism ain’t republicanism.
As ’em ol’ Protestant Reformers use-ta say, “Ad fontes!”
