RESTORING AMERICA

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.

COMING...A NEW ROUND OF TERRORISM


Have you ever seen a man with his head blown off? I have, and let me assure you that it is a sight you will not soon forget. Death is never pretty yet there are times when, in defense of yourself, your family, a total stranger, or your nation, taking the life of another is necessary. I will not use the term "a necessary evil" for there are times when it is not evil, simply necessary. At such times remorse over smiting the wicked is not appropriate. A deep sigh of relief is, that you are still breathing, and he is not. And that is where it should end; but with the people of Islam, killing is but part of the process. Then begins the chopping, the hacking, and the beheading.

WHERE HAVE ALL THE LEADERS GONE?



While still a young idealistic teenager (Many years ago), one of my favorite pieces of poetry was "No Man Is An Island" written in the 16th century by John Donne. Ernest Hemingway also appreciated that poem as he used a line from it as a title for one of his greatest works, "For Whom The Bell Tolls". The poem is brief, its meaning profound":

SOLD OUT BY TRAITORS...THE EVIDENCE



Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals number five states: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." That vicious man was not just reprehensible, he was a diabolical genius, and the evil he spawned has lived long after him. The ridicule he advocated is indeed a potent weapon when wielded by those who are totally devoid of morality. We see the technique used widely by the entire Democratic party and our RINOs. That ridicule provides a strong layer of protection for those who viciously attack our principles. 

IF YOU HOPE TO SURVIVE, FIRST YOU MUST UNDERSTAND


I recently had the good fortune to watch a speech by Bret Stephens on video that he made at the David Horowitz's Restoration Weekend November 15th - 18th 2012. Simply being invited to speak at such an affair says much about this man's credentials, but to hear such profundity and wisdom from one of his apparent youth is nothing short of astounding. The video link is in Suggested Reading at the end of this essay and I sincerely hope that you take the time to watch it. For the sake of those who do not, I write this essay, for he put forth three concepts that we must understand if we hope to survive.

AS AMERICANS GROW ANGRY WITH THE IRS (A PICTORIAL ESSAY)



Normally when I publish an essay I put forth a lot of writing and opinions. This one is an exception. The writing will be held to a minimum and the opinions can be read on the signs held by your fellow patriot as they express their resentment with the Internal Revenue Service.

SCANDAL IN THE WIND



For so long now so many of my fellow conservatives have been engaged in the frustrating effort to wake up the liberals of this nation, in vain.  Now it appears that if they are actually capable of waking up, the deed will be accomplished not by us but by the Obama administration itself and his lapdog media. 

Remaining forever skeptical about the purposes of our liberal media, until I see concrete evidence to suggest otherwise, I am expecting this rift between them and their messiah, to be no more than a temporary lover's spat, but for the present let us gain from their moment of weakness.

BENGHAZI HEARINGS...SEEKING THE TRUTH, OR PURSUING POWER?



Today, the hottest news items are the Benghazi hearings, the IRS scandal, and the MSM being mad as hell at Obama
(Temporarily I might add) about some of his tactics in regard to them, his loyal lap dogs. I must admit that I am not overly impressed with the show. Call me a cynic, call me a skeptic, call me whatever you choose but something is just not right about the whole thing.
