Weimar Germany had an economic crisis.
The Germans elected a bunch of politicians who scapegoated large groups of Germans, pitting Germans against each other.
German political leaders turned their backs on their Constitution, and the German people followed along, like sheep, out of a sense of expediency and crisis.
Free Germany then collapsed into a totalitarian state, which soon crumbled into total devastation, but only after tens of millions of lives were lost.
We are repeating history. But this time, there’s no gleaming beacon on the hill to come to the rescue. We are the last bastion of Freedom left in the world. And We The People are willfully letting that freedom vanish.
DO NOT GO GENTLE INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT

I added the Flag Counter back in October of 2009 because I was interested in the outreach of Truth Before Dishonor. I wanted to know who read this decidedly American and decidedly Christian Conservative political site. And to say I’m satisfied with the geopolitical breakdown of the viewers of this site would be an understatement.
Nearly 1 in 5 viewers of this site hail from outside the US. And I am overjoyed at that number. TBD is not just reaching Americans but people from a great many countries. TBD has reached a total of 162 different countries so far. And the United Kingdom is fast approaching the point where it becomes the third nation with more than 1,000 unique viewers.
Roughly 4 out of 5 viewers of this American, Christian Conservative political site hail from the US. And I am very pleased the ratio is so low. I have seen various sites where the totals are more along the lines of 9 in 10 from the US. I am proud of the wider dissemination that TBD has. While the goal of TBD is to reach as broad an audience and as many readers as possible, to provide Truth in the ever-lasting struggle against Leftist lies, it is not strictly an American goal. If only the US has the Truth and the rest of the world suffers under Socialist lies, the world is not a better place, and the US is evermore on the brink of destruction. Thus, the 1 in 5 viewers from outside the US are very welcome and very desired here. Would that it were 1 in 4! And, while TBD has more than doubled its daily viewership this year over last year, would that that number would more than treble again.
It is my desire — and I expect the desire of every author here — that TBD makes a very real difference in the governments and lives of all peoples, whether they be Americans, Israelis (as this site is officially and decidedly pro-Israel), Canadians, Europeans, Asians, Africans, or what have you. We even love people who live in Steak-and-Kidney!
So, what is the break-down of the viewers of TBD?
Roughly 4 in 5 hail from the US.
About 1 in 30 are Canadian.
Another 1 in 50 are from the United Kingdom.
Another 1 in 80 each are from Germany and Croatia (roughly speaking).
Nearly 1 in 100 each are from Australia and India.
Israel, which has a current population of less than 8,000,000, closely mirroring the total population of Virginia, the 12th most populous state in the US, and barely over half of one percent of India’s population of 1.22 billion, still accounts for more than 1 in 250 visitors here.
Of the over 160 countries represented, 23 countries have broken the 100 unique visitor threshold.
We at Truth Before Dishonor are very appreciative of every viewer here, not only the 4 in 5 which are American, but also the 1 in 5 which are not. You are what make this site. Please, after reading the “about” and “comment policy” pages, do add your own comments and build discussions. And if you are Israeli, do read the “Pro-Israel” page. You are not alone. And rest assured, we Americans are far more Israel-friendly than our current President, and tens of millions of us are working very hard to rectify that situation. Your comments are more than welcome. They are desired.
