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.

Tea Party of Old America

Americans are beginning to realize that we have been betrayed and that the bulk of our "leaders" are involved in a great conspiracy. Like so many Americans I was not overly interested in politics until after Hussein Obama was first elected. That tragedy led me to the internet and from there to political commentary. I had so much to learn, and the process continues. The greatest part of that learning process was not of current events, facts, dates, and how we got here, but grasping the enormity of pure evil and the frailties of human nature.


In a recent essay I explored the meaning of the old adage "Hope springs eternal" and it is so very true. It matters not how dire the future appears, people, unwilling to act on their own behalf, still hope for the best and, as a last act of desperation, pray for divine intervention to correct the error of their ways.

The human race, by its very nature, is fundamentally selfish. This is a trait born into our nature as a necessary means to survival. Without a certain degree of self gratification we would willingly part with everything and die either of starvation, thirst, or exposure. Watch a two year old child and learn that his or her favorite word is "Mine!". A certain selfishness therefore is part and parcel of being involved in mankind. Time and temperament either enhances or diminishes this trait, but selfishness, in and of itself, is not an absolute evil.


"We, the unwilling, led by the incompetent, continue to do so much for the undeserving." 

I am uncertain who first uttered these gallant words of utter frustration. I heard them many years ago and they seemed appropriate at the time, but far more so now. We look about us at the unproductive, and to the corrupt and incompetent leaders they put into our nation's capitol and shudder with despair. Despair is one thing; abject horror is still another and that we experience when we look to the Middle East and see that we are unwillingly supporting terrorism, and that is sadly spreading to our shores as well.


Most, if not all, have heard Albert Einstein's definition of insanity ... "Doing the same thing over and over again and hoping for different results." Using his definition I must wonder if much of this nation suffers from a form of collective insanity. Were the situation we face today not so dire, the actions of many of my fellow Americans would be almost laughable.

This nation recently drove the final nail into the coffin of freedom. They reelected a dictator for life. That statement, I know, is going to be disputed by many with the argument that a President can only serve two terms, as stated in the Twenty Second Amendment. One thought: Since when has Obama or our courts paid any attention to the Constitution? If we still observed the Constitution he would not be in office in the first place. Irregardless of whether Obama was born in Hawaii or not, which seems very doubtful, his father was not a natural born citizen of this country. That precludes him from serving as President of this nation.
