Horatius at the Gates of Rome is a rather famous poem by Thomas Babington, Lord Macaulay about the Roman hero Horatius. Horatius held a bridge, the Pons Sublicius, allowing Romans time to cross a river then tear up the bridge.
Lord Macaulay’s poem contains the cry from Horatius, “In yon strait path a thousand may well be stopped by three: now who will stand on either hand, and keep the bridge with me?”
So often conservatives seem outgunned and outmanned in fights. Both locally and nationally, activists get outgunned by lobbyists with large checks or leftwing activists with more resources. Majorities can get drown out by louder minorities who make themselves sound like a majority. I want to help resurgent conservatives fix that and hope you might join me in the fight.
Starting next week, here at the Resurgent, we intend to deploy some new and really cool technology that will make it pretty darn easy to connect conservatives to their local, state, and national political leaders. With this technology, they won’t be able to ignore you. From their twitter account to their Facebook page to their email inbox to their phone system, we are going to make it easy for you to raise hell with your elected officials.
Want to get involved and play a part? You’ve got to subscribe to the daily email. What will then happen is that if there is a state or national issue relevant to you, you will get a special email alert. From your smart phone you will be immediately able to take action.
We aim, at the Resurgent, to help play our part in building a resurgent conservative community and growing a base of resurgent conservative activists.
Now, for those who want to help us do this, you can contribute to the cause below. This is an expensive piece of technology. It is worth it and we will gladly eat the cost. But we are also hoping you won’t want us to and will see the value in it. If so, please consider contributing. The more money we raise, the more often we can deploy the technology.
