Friends and Fellow Patriots, the time has come to do something we clearly don’t do often enough.
We need to say…THANK YOU.
It’s just 2 words and they don’t come close to what we owe you, our readers, for all you have done for us at The National Patriot.
Tomorrow marks our 1 year anniversary.
Yep, The National Patriot is 1 year old and we hope that you’ll indulge us as we step just slightly away from politics for just 1 article.
Because of you, our Patriot readers, The National Patriot has become one of the fastest growing new conservative sites available and we thought it might be time to let you in on why we do what we do here.
In February of 2011, my cousin, Patty Robichaud and myself decided to try our hand at writing political articles for a website called, Politicular. After 3 months, the purveyor of that site decided to go in a different direction although he did offer to sell us the site which we built for him.
It didn’t seem like a good idea and besides, nobody knew how to pronounce the name of that site.
Heck…Neither did we.
Patty and I took a month or so off but, to be quite honest, we missed it.
In Early July of last year, I approached Patty with the idea of starting over. Our OWN site.
A Name which could be pronounced even if my own last name eludes most people.
We enlisted Joe Ammendolia to assist with the technical aspects and within a couple of weeks, we had a site empty and waiting for content. Well, Patty had, with great foresight and wisdom, managed to archive what we had done at Politicular and so, she added that to our new site…Which explains why our archives at The National Patriot go back a few months deeper than our 1 year anniversary.
We recruited a few friends to contribute when they could and, on July 27th, 2011, we launched The National Patriot!!
The idea was simple.
