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 was born in West Virginia and recall that as a kid of maybe five, six, or seven, we would make our monthly trip to Charleston. It is quite natural to forget much after sixty years but there is one man that I shall never forget. I never knew his name or anything about him other than the fact that he had a little four wheeled platform built low to the ground and that was his means of transportation as both of his legs had been blown off up to the hips. From that platform he sold pencils for a nickle each and promoted a love for this nation in the little American flag that waved from his pencil canister. You see, that was about 1950, and sometime in the six to ten years prior to me taking my nickle over and buying a pencil from him he had lost both legs in service to this nation, and that little cart had become his legs, and his pencil canister a message board. On that can was a purple heart, a thank you note of sorts from an appreciative nation, and the rest of the message was the little flag that told the world he would do it all again. Thinking back, legs or not, I believe that he was the tallest man I ever met.

The following is a quote. It is the first paragraph of an essay entitled 'Wake Up America' that I wrote on August 11: 
Being a writer I quite naturally am thrilled when others show an interest in my work. Last month I wrote an essay entitled 'Egypt ... Soros ... The Real Plan Is Worse Than The Brotherhood'. Now that was a thrill, for within a matter of a few days it had become the most read item that I had ever written and broke all of my previous records. This month is another surprise as someone, digging through the archives, unearthed an older essay that I had written in April of 2012 and it has now become my most reposted essay for this month. Its title and its surprising reemergence is very revealing of what is on the mind of Americans. The title 'We Are Not Doomed', and its new found popularity tells me one thing. Americans are just plain scared.
Well, it is still number one for the month and as mentioned, people digging into my archives indicates much about the mindset of Americans. The same can be said for the people of the Middle East for their most read item is Adolph Hitler's 'Mein Kampf' and the horrors of Mein Kampf are being brought to you by none other than Barrack Hussein Obama, for it was he who unleashed those horrors on the 4th of June, 2009 in his infamous Cairo speech.

Back when the civil war in Libya was just beginning I was writing of Responsibility To Protect, a Soros sponsored doctrine now commonly known and referred to as R2P. At that time I was warning all who would listen that George Soros, with Obama's assistance had created the 'Arab Spring', which lately I have been referring to that as the 'Islamic Firestorm'. That firestorm is gaining in force and growing more dangerous with each passing day. Along with R2P I brought up the dangers presented by three women in the Obama regime. Samantha Power, now known to many, Susan Rice who has progressed from UN Ambassador to National Security Adviser, and Hillary Clinton, ostensibly being groomed for a Presidential run in 2016.

Were I hard pressed to define the greatest weakness of conservative Americans in one word, I could not do it, as the issues are so diverse. However, if the search pattern were broadened to allow for five terms I believe I could present a good summation of the problem. That list would include the following: Fearful, gullible, lacking reason, confused, passive. Allow me to discuss these issues in reverse order.

Passive: I am confident that most who read this have seen the statement "Our ancestors would already be up in arms." It goes without saying that those who built this country were builders. They did not sit idly by waiting for others to do for them. Today we are waiting for someone else to cure the problem.
Confused: Most people are totally in the dark on how we have reached the point of near collapse and dictatorial rule. Seeking answers most look to the junk sites on the internet, thus adding to their confusion.
Gullible: To prove this point I simply direct you to Washington. Look at those who have lied to us year after year and keep getting reelected.
Lacking Reason: Were our people using reason then they would not be Passive, Confused, or Gullible.
Fearful: This state of mind is rampant and is the result of all of the above.

Martin Luther King was not only a brave man, he was also a noble man, and like many brave and noble men before him, he paid for his beliefs with his life. Sadly, Doctor King is still paying as the very people he fought to liberate dishonor his memory and are giving birth to a new round of racism that is on the verge of engulfing this nation in a hatred that has not been known since the days of Reconstruction that followed the Civil War.

I believe in the message of Martin Luther King, and I believe in justice. In one of his most famous quotes he spoke of his children, but in doing so his message encompassed all black people of this nation. Those beautiful words read "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

I would love to see that dream realized and see people judged by the content of their character, and sentenced accordingly.
