One year ago, Red Nation Rising was “born” from a single Tweet from the “@NObamaChat” account on Twitter four days after Obama had just been reelected.
Dark Days of Obama are Dwindling
It wasn’t just the shock of Romney losing, but arrogant Blue Dems were on mainstream media declaring us dead anointing Obama King.
Anyone remember all that talk of Obama having a mandate by pundits on tv, including Fox? Boy were they wrong. Obama is closer to a prison date than he is a mandate. He’s had a HORRIBLE year. It will get worse and worse for him and all Blue Dems.
It sure didn’t feel like it a year ago. At the time, there was serious chatter from normally rational people about revolution or secession filling up my Twitter timeline. Someone even suggested a military coup. That is real scary stuff. Morale was down while a rage was building.
I didn’t want to see bloody people or broken stuff, so I wrote a tweet to let people know that we weren’t dead! It needed to be bold and aggressive and let them know that we could still win. We needed to unite to win the future.
They Grow So Fast, Don’t They?
Despite the election results, and the Electoral Map, almost every county in America — even urban ones — trended conservative Red in November 2012 (this trend is continuing). I spontaneously tweeted using the hashtag #RedNationRising and it just exploded into a genuine grassroots phenomenon.
Three weeks after that initial Tweet, #RedNationRising was Twitter’s number one trend in the word. What a night that was.
In one year, Red Nation Rising has made more than 4 BILLION social media impressions. Last week alone, more than 6,000 unique Contributors reached over 15 million Twitter accounts and 60 million Twitter Timelines. To create a hashtag which has grown so fast and launched itself to become a growing platform with multiple channels has been humbling.
Centrists, Conservatives & Libertarians Uniting to the Right
Recently I’ve been doing radio appearances (there’s a monthly Radio Red Nation Rising segment the Third Sunday of every month on The American Maverick Radio Show) and public speeches.
Plans are shaping up for “Red Nation Rising Road Trip Rallies” in 2014. The idea is to get conservative bloggers visiting key cities in purple states. I’m going to apply to CPAC as a speaker. Maybe we’ll raise sufficient funds to be vendor.
Ultimately, Red Nation Rising is about everyone. It’s all of us Centrists, Conservatives and Libertarians connecting to the right.
One of the best results of this has been exposing Obama and the Big Gov Blue Dems wrecking America to growing numbers of people, including former Obama voters who have been embracing Red Nation Rising in growing numbers. They are waking up. The only way to save America, to make things right, is to support Conservative candidates, movements and media.
Red Nation Rising is Unique
The whole experience of our grassroots and growing social community is special. It all started from a single Tweet one year ago today. Together, we’ve done a lot in one year. We’re going to do even more in the next year and beyond.
Thank you, everyone, for your support! Happy Birthday… to everyone in the Red Nation Rising social community!
