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.

One of the ruins of Detroit 
There is a collection of "cannots" falsely attributed to Abraham Lincoln. False attribution or not they are worth mentioning and noting that in his race to destroy this nation, Hussein Obama is practicing all of those "cannots".
"You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot encourage the brotherhood of man by encouraging class hatred. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn. You cannot build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves."
Rev. William John Henry Boetcker (1873-1962)

The people who pull Obama's strings are well educated, well funded, well motivated, and totally devoid of morality. Such is the nature of those lesser gods who seek absolute rule over mankind, and unlike most of us, they have learned from history. They are fully aware of the wisdom found in those "cannots" above and intend to ignore that wisdom in the effort to bring down all of the nations of the west.

In 1920, Detroit was the richest nation in the world, and yet today a large portion of it lies in ruins, reminiscent of the crumbling ancient cities of fallen empires that have not withstood the test of time. This link will take you on a guided tour of those modern ruins of Detroit. What, you might ask, could have caused this? The cause begins with the fact that Detroit was so wealthy. I shall show you shortly exactly what happened there but first let's see where else it is happening.

The following are cities with population exceeding 250,000 - data from 2007-2011 

American cities and their people living below the poverty level:
1. Detroit, MI .............. 32.5%
2. Buffalo, NY ............. 29..9%
3. Cincinnati, OH ......... 27.8%
4. Cleveland, OH ......... 27.0%
5. Miami, FL ................ 26.9%
6. St. Louis, MO .......... 26.8%
7. El Paso, TX ............. 26.4%
8. Milwaukee, WI ....... 26.2%
9. Philadelphia, PA ..... 25.1%
10. Newark, NJ ........... 24.2%

A common denominator with all of these cities is that most have elected Democratic mayors almost exclusively for the last fifty to sixty years. Somewhere in that statement should be a learning experience, and there is. Actually there are two. One is that if you hope to be mayor you must lean left, offering your constituents ever more, thus explaining the ever increasing number of RINOs. Two, when you follow lesson one, you will destroy the city you have been elected to lead.

And who worked out the plan of destroying cities to remain in power? It
James Michael Curley
was James Michael Curley a man who served four terms as Democratic mayor of Boston, one term in Congress, and one term as Governor of Massachusetts. He was essentially an Irish mobster,  a truly fascinating and totally amoral politician who kept getting elected between convictions and prison terms for corruption. He is given credit for having learned how to shape and create a custom made electorate. History has honored him by referring to his tactics as "The Curley Effect". One little side note. He was eventually given full pardons for his felony convictions by President Harry S. Truman.

Curley found himself in Boston, a town largely occupied by working class descendants of Ireland. He set about, successfully I might add, to foster a class war which drove the wealthy Anglo Saxons from Boston, leaving a voting block of Irish laborers who managed to keep him in office while their poverty grew as a result of his tactics.

Unfortunately the Curley Effect is being utilized by Hussein Obama in his ruin of America.

From Forbes, May 2012...
President Obama's Wealth Destroying Goal: Taking The Curley Effect Nationwide
"It's hard to think of anything more perverse in American politics than the Curley effect. The Curley effect historically has been an urban phenomenon, but President Obama seems bent on taking the entire country down this wretched path."

As I can say it no better, this is a direct quote from Forbes:
"Here's an example of how the Curley effect works: Let's say a mayor advocates and adopts policies that redistribute wealth from the prosperous to them not so prosperous by bestowing generous tax financed favors on unions, the public sector in general, and select corporations. These Beneficiaries become economically dependent on their political patrons, so they give them their undivided electoral support e.g., votes, campaign contributions, and get out the vote drives."

They go on to say:
"Meanwhile, the anti-rich rhetoric of these clever demagogues, combined with higher taxes to fund the political favors, triggers a flight of tax refugees from the cities to the suburbs. This reduces the number of political opponents on the city's voter registration rolls, thereby consolidating an electoral majority for the anti-wealthy party. It also shrinks the tax base of the city, even as the city's budget swell. The inevitable bankruptcy that results from expanding expenditures while diminishing revenues can be postponed for decades with the help of state and federal subsidies ("stimulus" in the Obama vernacular) and creative financing, but eventually you end up with cities like Detroit - called by Glaeser and Shleifer "the first major Third World city in the United States."

The mention of Glaeser and Shleifer takes us to a paper they prepared for the National Bureau For Economic Research in May 2002. It is in PDF format and thus cannot be copied and pasted as can something from most websites. I am hoping that you read the whole thesis but as your time may be short, I shall use only the first paragraph of their introduction because it not only describes Curley's racist, political agenda, but Obama's as well:

"Early in the First World War, a wounded British office arrived in Boston to recruit citizens of the then neutral United States to fight in the British army. He politely asked the by then legendary Irish mayor of Boston, James Michael Curley, for permission. Curley replied, "Go ahead Colonel. Take every damn one of them." This statement captures Curley's life long hostility to the Anglo Saxons of Boston whom he described as "a strange and stupid race", and his clear wish that they just leave. Throughout his four terms using a combination of aggressive redistribution and incendiary rhetoric, Curley tried to transform Boston from an integrated city of poor Irish and rich Protestants into a Gaelic city on American shores."

Today I see the same hatred of whites in general from Obama. He caters to the poor blacks among us, he is importing Muslims with the greatest possible haste, and has an open door policy to the Hispanics south of us. By and large his intent is to overwhelm the white race and our way of life by any and all means available, and when you occupy the Oval Office, 'all means available', is an assurance that very few means are denied.

The lawmakers that we have sent to Washington have betrayed us, seeking only to remain in power, totally uncaring of the damage that they inflict. The unrestrained immigration that is now taking place guarantees the fall of a great nation, and those 'leaders" know far better than we what is taking place, and what the consequences will be. They may talk all day about fairness, and the "rights" of the illegals among us, but they are traitors to this nation and no word fits them better. To remain in office they court the "brown vote" and throw us to the wolves.

America's greatest weakness is a failure of most of our people to grasp the big picture. Many look to Hussein Obama, our Senators, and Congressmen, and accuse them of being incompetent. No doubt there were many of Boston's wealthy who said the same of Curley. Rest assured that there is no such thing as an incompetent politician. Even a young hopeful selected to run for city council has found favor in someone's eyes and is a potential new supporter of their agenda.

Once a person reaches the level of becoming mayor, especially in a big city, that person has come into his own. He has learned how to play ball with the big boys. What may appear to be incompetence or irrational, is all part of a plan that has been worked out behind closed doors.

Allow me to jump across some thousands of miles of water to a statement made just recently by London Mayor Boris Johnson:

From The Daily Mail UK:
Boris Johnson
Boris Johnson attacks Islamist 'mumbo jumbo' and says Britain must not allow killers to divide country through 'war' myth
The Mayor of London condemned as ‘bunk’ the idea that there was a clash of civilizations and warned against exaggerating the ‘plague’ of militants

Many would be inclined to state that Mayor Johnson is incompetent. I disagree. He is part of an agenda and he knows how to play ball. Now he is one of the big boys, and the big boys, quite frankly, don't give a damn about you.

A final excerpt from the Forbes article:

"What is most troublesome about the Curley effect is that it is spreading beyond its historical setting of cities. Entire states, most notably our populous, California, are manifesting all of the symptom of the Curley effect: Democrats enjoying electoral hegemony; businesses and middle class individuals, more Republican than Democratic, emigrating to states with less oppressive tax regimes; reduced job opportunities; a budget careening toward bankruptcy."

James Michael Curley now resides only in history and in the memories of unscrupulous politicians, and they have learned their lessons well. He is but one in a long line of those who put their own self interests ahead of their duties as Americans and as leaders of Americans. Duty, honor, and service to this nation have been left behind. Our society has now become so immoral that only the most immoral among us reach the top, and I cannot help but wonder how many did they crush to get there?
