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.
When I begin a series of essays I generally have an overall view where each segment will lead. This one is an exception to that rule as it is the result of numerous comments made by a group of fellow patriots firmly adhering to the concept of Ted Cruz being elected in 2016 and questioning various positions that I put forth in my last installment of Conservatives In Fantasy Land.
The term 'Thirty pieces of silver' always invokes the image of betrayal, and so you probably know where this essay is leading.
I have long written of my belief that there is NO political solution to the problems we face today. This one essay, Tahrir Square U.S.A., dates back to February of 2014. Allow me to offer an excerpt: 'I make no secret of the fact that I have absolutely no belief that there is a political solution to today's problems. No election is going to alter the course of this nation. If that course is to be altered it will be done only with an uprising of our people as we witnessed occurring in Tahrir Square in Egypt. Anything less and we are simply delaying until tomorrow what should have been done years ago.'
I write this the day after December 7, 2014. Many years have passed since the day of 'infamy.' A day that many vowed would never be forgotten. But like so many dates of history and the importance, we have forgotten. On many occasions we have neglected to pass on the history of our country. The forming of values in this great nation. In many cases we have forgotten those who fought for our country. Men and women who believe in the values of our country. I also have to admit I didn't always pass on to others what I know of history.
My last essay Conservatives In Fantasy Land Part One was but a brief summation of some of the predictions that I have made over the last five years, predictions I might add that have already come true or are in the process of coming into full bloom right now. It would be so nice if I had to work harder to find vindicating evidence of my beliefs but such evidence is overwhelming and there are times I simply hate being right. Sadly most Americans slumber on. Some are hard core liberals and progressives with an agenda to fulfill and an axe to grind, but so very many are quite simply deluded patriots, content to spend their time on the internet discussing who they want to vote for in 2016, and discussing the latest hoax.
