FREEDOM RINGS 1776 is a conservative voice, defending the views of those who still believe in the constitution and opposing any and all who would lead us from our tried and true beliefs. We who still believe in the spirit of 1776 must oppose anyone who would set this nation on a course that will fundamentally transform America.

Regretfully I know not who authored the following, but his words struck a chord within me and I felt compelled to pass it on to others of similar thought.

"Lord, make my hand fast and accurate.
Let my aim be true and my hand faster
than those who would seek to destroy me.
Grant me victory over my foes and those who wish to do harm to me and mine.
Let not my last thought be 'If I only had my gun."
And Lord, if today is truly the day you call me home
Let me die in a pile of empty brass." 


From Concord and Bunker Hill to Gettysburg and Omaha Beach, to a killing field in a movie theater in Aurora Colorado this nation has never been short on men willing to sacrifice their own lives to protect those they love. And that, is a shortage we will never face. When times are at their very worst for this nation there will always be men who are at their very best, and so it was in Aurora, and so it will be anytime that people of courage must face a choice between their own safety and the survival of those they love, and often that love extends to total strangers.

Three such men made a willful choice and their courage was no less than those who died in the sands of Iwo Jima or the frigid waters of the North Atlantic. They did what Americans do best. They answered the call of duty.
