The Carolina Patriot: A New Voice from the South

March 8, 2012
When The Carolina Patriot was created it was made with the main purpose of providing an alternative viewpoint to the current political and social climate. The south has long been a bastion of social and political conservatism but those ideals have since lost their original meanings and have been hijacked by people who don’t truly understand what any of it stood for. There is no way forward for America if people waste countless hours arguing about things that don’t matter like gay marriage or abortion. Those aren’t national issues. Those are personal issues. Ones that people will do whether or not it’s legal or illegal and it’s not the government’s place, or our place, to tell people how to live their lives.

What we should be worrying about right now is fixing the economy, maintaining responsible currency, shrinking the size of the government, protecting our civil liberties, and avoiding unnecessary foreign wars. But that’s not what’s happening in most news outlets. The drums of war are beating again and the American people are being taken in by the lies once more. You won’t find any of that in this newspaper. If anything, you can take solace in the fact that you will be able to find the truth, or at least as close to the truth as we can get, here.

But I assure you, you’ll be able to find much more than just political and opinion articles here. We’ll have some of everything and will even bring in some well-known writers from the Beaufort area to talk about the local history, culture and art. You can also expect to see some movie reviews, both old and new. Once a week you can find new articles about classic or obscure movies that you’ve probably never heard of. Stick around and you’ll be sure to find plenty to pique your interest here. Heck, you might even learn something or have something to teach us!
