Is the Pen Still Mightier than the Sword?

Is the Pen Still Mightier than the Sword?

As major newspapers plummet in circulation and begin to stop the presses, there is a power of the written word growing louder each day. It does not smell of newsprint or expose itself on high gloss paper. It is the pulse of pixels pouring out the true heartbeat of America in thousands of Internet blogs and websites.

While the electronic leftist media largely controls the message of liberalism >socialism >Marxism >communism, the “pen” of true patriots trying to hold onto all that is ‘right’ about America is writing a new chapter each day. While the clarion call of talk radio helped brew the Tea Parties, the ingredients for the nationwide protests were stirred vigorously where more people now get their unfiltered news and information and the pen of conservative opinion writes freely.

The sheer strength of the Internet was seen in the rise of Barack Obama whose operatives used their skills to raise millions and effectively bounce Hillary from the nomination. But since BHO started his campaign of economic terror, anti-Christian, anti-American, pro-Islamic presidential term, the growth of serious opposition has mushroomed on the Internet and has become fundamental in getting out the real story of what is happening to America.

While smug TV commentators like Keith Olberman and Anderson Cooper mock protestors without any regard to WHY they are protesting, they watch their own influence being flushed down the toilet as evidenced by Nielsen Ratings that mirror the recent fall in the stock markets.

The righteous anger of Americans largely ignored by the old media is reverberating loudly through the pens of citizen journalists who don’t accept the press release mentality of Washington.

Maybe it’s time to rephrase the old adage “The pen is mightier than the sword” and see if there is not a more modern expression. But the truth is unchanged:  The written word can be used to stir the masses or to still the masses. My fellow truth seekers– WRITE ON!
