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.

Perhaps I watched the original Superman series of the fifties too much and got brainwashed by the term "Truth, justice, and the American way." but I did adopt that as a personal principle and have long lived with it, and shall undoubtedly die believing in it. Later in the ninth grade I was fortunate enough to have a wonderful civics teacher who added to that love of country. A few years later I donned the uniform of an American warrior and the deed was done. Now if is not the truth I reject it. If it is not just, I oppose it. If it is not the American way then it is not my way, and it is wrong. Unfortunately not all Americans are so inclined and they are not above the use of propaganda on fellow Americans.


Ted Cruz
The past five years have given rise to those who briefly inspired the hopes of so many conservatives that this is 'The One' that will lead America back to the Promised Land. All too soon we found that our latest idol has feet of clay and walks with comfort among those of the enemy camp. John McCain most assuredly heads up that group as millions rallied behind him as the latest Moses. Add Christie to the list, along with Rubio, Paul Ryan, and even the walking personification of Progressivism, Mitt Romney. All have given hope. None have led.

They say that the enemy of my enemy is my friend, but when the enemy of my enemy is also a friend to another enemy, I cannot help but feel that I am surrounded by enemies, believing in none.

What led to the writing of this essay was an excellent bit of research on the part of Trevor Louden. When it comes to research I expect nothing short of excellence from Trevor as he is one of the best, if not the very best political researcher in the world. In every speech that I have ever seen him make I have held that man in awe, as he is either devoid of emotion, or keeps those emotions tightly in check. There was one time that he almost smiled ... almost. Personal observation: Emotions are superfluous for anyone seeking the truth as hatred, anger, fear, and wishful thinking always clouds one's judgement.
