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.

Bill Whittle

Last night I watched a Glasov Gang video and heard in the first few minutes, Bill Whittle, a man whom I greatly admire, state without any reservation "I just don't care." It was such a relief to hear him utter those words, for lately I have been thinking exactly the same thing. The specific topic under discussion was the fictitious Fiscal Cliff, but my "I just don't care" attitude is far reaching. It goes well beyond the Fiscal Cliff, free cell phones, and food stamps.

Those not living in a state of denial, know that no matter what is advocated, said, or done, Obama will have his way, for there are none in those hallowed halls of Congress with the courage to stand before America and tell the truth about this man. In one election after another they smile and wave to all who will listen, while revealing their great plans and making false promises, and then in one issue after another they sell us out.


It has been estimated that only three percent of the colonists were actually involved in the struggle for liberty. I have no reason to dispute that small number. Subtracting women of the colonies, reduced the potential fighting force by one half. Taking away those too young, or too old, or physically impaired, further reduces the possible participants. Slaves must be eliminated as potential military as no culture will arm slaves. A further factor is that approximately fifteen to twenty percent of the colonists preferred rule by a king over freedom of choice. We cannot ignore the craven element for there are cowards in all generations. That narrows the field to probably around three percent of our forefathers that had the courage to stand before oppression and fight, perhaps die, for the right to call themselves free men.


In a world full of puny minds there occasionally emerges a great thinker. One such man was Sir Winston Churchill. From his book "The Gathering Storm" we are the beneficiaries of his wisdom for from that book we read:
"Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you have to fight with all of the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worst case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory for it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
-Winston Churchill

At the end of this essay in Suggested Reading there is a video entitled "England warns Americans 'Don't let them take your guns'" It is nine minutes and nine seconds long ... Time well spent.
