It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired. I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue. I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe. I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great.....

A Winning Team?
In recent months you my readers have heard me muse on my Southern heritage, a heritage I hold dear, and my hope that a new Southern nation (a Christian nation) might present an alternative "plan B" to the United States when the inevitable fall comes about. I still believe that such an alternative is possible though recent events in Mississippi, demonstrating the fundamental moral failure of voters, has caused me to understand that the restoration of Dixieland will be an uphill battle. In response, I have called on my readers to huddle closer to orthodox Catholic parishes and monasteries as we attempt to enclave to create authentic Catholic communities to weather the storm that is approaching. All of these suggestions I stand by, and encourage my readers to take seriously.
That being said, there is the short term to think of. In less than one year now, the United States of America will have a presidential election. It could potentially become the biggest election in recent history. We have to take this seriously, and we have to think about what this nation needs, and what candidates are viable. Yes, my readers, I too am an idealist, and I do wish for a better selection of candidates (and parties for that matter). However, like all of you, I am forced to deal with what is available.
That being said, I would like to call your attention not to one presidential candidate, but two. I am talking about Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich. While neither candidate alone may have what it takes to beat the Chicago political machine that is Barack Obama, the two of them together have a synergistic effect that is nothing short of political dynamite! Herman Cain would make a good political front man, contending with Barack Obama for the presidency, while Newt Gingrich would very much be the brains behind the operation. He's very smart, but not a good front man. "Cain/Gingrich" would be a winning ticket. This is not an endorsement on my part. It's just an observation. If you want Obama/Biden out of office in 2012, than Cain/Gingrich is just the combination you need to do it. That's all I'm going to say about this. It's up to you, the voters, to decide now.
