Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Fare thee well, my friends!

A little over four years ago, I gave this blogging thing a shot.  It began with an e-mail to my family and friends letting them know of my blog.  It took about a month or two of posts before someone finally left a comment, and I was excited about the comment…until it became clear that the commenter was a barking moonbat.  I thought “I sure hope it gets better than this!”

Well, it did.  Four years, five thousand posts, over ten thousand comments, and several national mentions later, this blog took off.  True, it never compared to the “big boys” of the blogosphere like Little Green Footballs or Michelle Malkin, but that was never my goal.  My goal was to inform, amuse, and spark discussion.  Along the way, I’ve made a lot of friends, and for that, I will always be grateful.  You guys are the best!

I also learned a lot of things myself.  I learned that politics, while important, is not the end-all and be-all of life.  Faith, family, friends, and fun are so much more important than who wins and loses elections.  I have been awakened to the reality that while politics is temporary, God is eternal.  Our time on Earth is limited, so I plan to make the most of the blessings that God has given to me.  If you lack faith, might I recommend “The Case for Christ” by Lee Strobel?  Powerful stuff.  Once Jesus saves you, your life will never be the same…and that’s a good thing!

At any rate, I want to thank each and every person who has visited this blog, regardless on whether or not you have commented here.  I also want to thank each person who has contacted me, either by comment or e-mail, and told me how much they’ve enjoyed my writing.  As a writer of any sort, that’s the best compliment that one can receive.  I have been moved by the kind words of folks who I may possibly never personally meet.

In closing, I would like to ask that you fine folks keep in touch.  You will probably see me around the blogosphere every once in a while leaving comments at places like Jenn’s Screw Liberals.  She’s a good friend of mine, like many of you are.  Also…

In light of the heavy lobbying I have received by many of you (and I am humbled by that), I am contemplating reviving Crush Liberalism in the spring, likely around March or April.  However, if I do, it would probably be in the form of a weekly column, much like Ann Coulter does (albeit with much less antagonism and shock factor…I doubt that God wants me to have that kind of p#ss and vinegar in my writing).  If that’s something you guys would like to see, please let me know by shooting me an e-mail at crushliberalism AT hotmail D0T c0m.  I want to collect your e-mail addresses so I can sell it to a spam house for profit…I’m kidding!  It’s so I can blast off an e-mail to you if/when the column comes out.

Until then, may God bless each and every one of you, and may you experience the peace and liberating joy than knowing Jesus brings to your life.  I love you all!

Your friend in Christ,

Jonathan aka Crush Liberalism

P.S.  If you’re ever going to be in the Jacksonville, FL, area, let me know and we may be able to get together for a moment or two.  It would be a pleasure to meet you!
