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.
Nearly five years ago when the battle cry was 'Vote em Out' I was warning of civil war and the utter futility of believing that our elected officials would support the American public. Since then we have had the election of 2010, regarded by many at that time to be a victory. Also, at that time, I was writing that it was a victory in name only as the RINOs of the GOP were giving false hope to America. An (R) by a politician's name is very deceptive, as that (R) misleads the gullible. False hope, by the way, leads only to despair and anguish, but Americans, being what they are were immediately looking forward to 2012 when we would really 'Vote em Out'. Yes sir, we were going to show Obama the door, marked EXIT.
History tells us of a man who is possibly the world's best known bank robber, and in an odd sort of way I rather admire him...for his honesty. Allow me to explain: Folklore tells us that a reporter once asked Mr. Sutton why he robbed banks and he replied, "Because that's where the money is." In a book he later published 'Where The Money Was', ole Willie denied ever having said that, crediting the imaginative reporter with coining the phrase. What he did tell us well indicates a certain degree of honesty about his chosen profession: "As to what actually motivated Sutton to hold up banks, as he said in 'Where the Money Was': "Why did I rob banks? Because I enjoyed it. I loved it. I was more alive when I was inside a bank, robbing it, than at any other time in my life. I enjoyed everything about it so much that one or two weeks later I'd be out looking for the next job. But to me the money was the chips, that's all."
