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.

I have often described myself as being spiritual but not religious, and I am not about to change my views, but it looks as though I am about to embark on a crusade in defense of those who are religious. Due to an article that I just read that angered me, I decided about five minutes ago to begin this essay. Quite honestly at this point I am uncertain if I am defending the religious, the Constitution, this nation, or all of the above. We will learn the answer together as the effort proceeds.


Every morning I launch on a new day of internet research and sometimes wonder if the Mad Hatter is on the loose. On those really bad days I am led to believe that he holds political office.

Before Hussein Obama was ever elected we all heard him dismiss the exceptional qualities of our nation. Those words heralded the end of this country and our freedom, and far too few heeded the warning. For over a century the U.S.A. had been one of the leaders of the free world. After WWII none doubted that we were The Leader. Obama signaled the end of that period with much of our people endorsing the self imposed diminished status. There was but one catch, that will eventually prove to be a Catch 22. They still want all of the privileges, the materialism, and the wealth that comes with being the leader, while forsaking the responsibilities.


The most basic premise of physics, history, economics, and for that matter, any system known to man, is the law of cause and effect. You can run. You can hide. You can create diversions and excuses, but that law is immutable and unrelenting, for in time it will bite you on the ass with a vengeance.

If one sets out to bake a pie, using the finest ingredients, the proper technique, paying careful attention to oven temperature and timing you can expect to produce a good pie. If, on the other hand, you use only shoddy ingredients, uncaring about your technique or the timing and temperature of the oven, you will most assuredly be disappointed with the results. The same can be said about the building of a nation's or a world's future. Now we look to the future and feel an overwhelming sense of dread and to understand why, we need but look to the past.
