Note: For frequently updated reflections on the state of the United States, please refer to this site’s blog.
The site was conceived on behalf of the region of the country populated by the people whom the late Southern novelist Carson McCullars aptly described as “leftover people” – those angry, despised and disenfranchised masses – Southerners, Midwesterners, and Far Westerners – who occupy the broad American heartland known as the red states and who have been deemed “deplorable” and “irredeemable” by Hillary Clinton and others among our national ruling class.
The premise of this site is simple: The so-called Leftover people deserve better. The people held in such low regard by Hillary Clinton and other elites played an indispensable role in building this country, serving as enlisted men and women in far-flung military outposts throughout the world and supplying much of the courage, ingenuity and brawn that not only ensured the settlement of the vast American wilderness but also the remarkable industrialization that followed.
It’s been said that we are actually two – possibly even three or four – nations shoehorned into one.
This site proudly affirms and celebrates the nation in the middle: the men and women of Red State America – the so-called deplorables and irredeemables.
Yes, they deserve better.
