2016: The Year of Revolution

The American Revolution of 1776 was a conservative reaction as the American people sought to “conserve” natural rights that had been usurped by the British King and Parliament. The year 2016 will be remembered as the pivotal year by which Americans began to once again assert their natural right to self-government. Donald Trump is truly a revolutionary figure in that he has awakened the beast to its own true nature. Americans are now beginning to embrace the normal and genuinely progressive principle of putting the interests of the sovereign nation first. This common-sense idea, at the core of making America great again, reminds us of who we are as individuals and what it means to be an American.

2016 witnessed the resurgence across the world of the sovereign nation-state as peoples have begun to take control over their own nations and destinies. The ball started rolling in Great Britain on June 23 with Brexit, the exit from the European Union, and the assertion of British nationhood. The thunderous effect of that seminal moment is now rumbling across Europe with the reassertion of national sovereignty in the face of war and terror carried out by brutal Islamic invaders. The chickens came home to roost in America with the election of Donald Trump. The move toward sovereignty will continue to sweep across the globe in the coming years because freedom is contagious. The imperialist forces of the amoral globalists and their radical jihadist allies are now being checked.

When the Americans defeated the imperialist forces of the invading British after a seven-year war of defense, and when America established an independent republic, a ripple of freedom made its way around the world. The American experiment in self-government was a beacon of light for all peoples. May the progressive forces that have been unleashed this year guide our country toward a stronger and more prosperous future.
