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.
TED CRUZ AND WHEN PEOPLE DO NOT MATTER
I have long been known as a prognosticator of coming events. The accuracy of those projections are recorded in my past essays for all to examine at your leisure, should you so choose. Many, admittedly, do not like to read those things that I project as they are without a doubt gloomy, disheartening, dismal, and unfortunately, quite accurate. I claim no gift of clairvoyance, divine inspiration, nor do I credit my efforts to some anonymous source in the administration as do so many. I simply sit alone at my keyboard, loving the wealth of information available on the internet for those who are bold enough to seek it out. To that information I apply a knowledge of history, of human nature and it's greed, cowardice, and courage, and I apply logic and reason as well as the law of cause and effect. That approach often leads to conclusions that I do not like, but refuse to turn from simply due to the displeasure such answers induce ... None can hope to see the future without understanding the past.
In all of mankind's history there is no such thing as an isolated event. Napoleon did not just come to power. Historical events allowed him to seize the moment. Japan did not just decide to cross an ocean and attack our Navy in Pearl Harbor. Past events paved the way, and our hopes to avoid war turned our people into sitting ducks on that Sunday morning in 1941. Nor did 911 come into being without a chain of events that led to it.
The future is always viewed through a glass darkly but trends can be foretold with a working knowledge of the past. Sadly those who choose to peer through that glass darkly are generally disregarded until it is far too late. So it was with Cassandra of Troy, of the soothsayer who warned Caesar about the Ides of March, of General Sherman detailing just how horrid the Civil War would be, of Winston Churchill's warnings of war, and those who advised Obama to not withdraw from Iraq.
At the top of this page you will find my statement of purpose for writing. It reads...
Some see, few know, many choose to wander aimlessly in a fog, devoid of sunlight. I seek the light of day and leave the others to their chosen realm of ignorance. They are the ones who have brought this great nation down. I write only for the benefit of those who possess the courage required to restore our birthright.
If you have made it this far then I must assume that you possess the courage to face the future, fearful though it be, and once more I shall venture onto the path of future events:
Abraham Lincoln was also a man who sought to view the future, with malice toward none. In younger days he made this prediction, and I fear that it is coming to pass:
“From whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some trans-Atlantic military giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe and Asia...could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years. No, if destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men we will live forever or die by suicide.”
The death of a nation is not an event. It is a process through which so many nations of the past have gone, and we are undoubtedly embarked upon that same journey. Our people look to the past and recall the rise of Hitler and of communism in Russia and draw parallels between those events and what is taking place in America today.
Both nations became police states where the will of the people mattered not at all. While the U.S. is not yet a police state our people are rapidly being relegated to the same category of insignificance; fully evidenced by the results of recent elections. Now we look upon another such election, many discouraged, many others frightened, and yet still more in a full blown state of panic and denial. Meanwhile, others continue on in a state of blissful ignorance, totally unaware of the approaching danger.
And I bring not good news or happy prognostications, and many may denounce me for my views, but I seek the truth, not wishful thinking, fantasy land, nor a warm fuzzy delusion.
Ted Cruz will never become President, and knows that he cannot win, and if you can quell your anger long enough to continue reading, I shall show you why I believe this to be true. By the way, Ted Cruz is, in my opinion, the most patriotic statesman in Washington. See my high praise of him in past articles found below in Suggested Reading.
Shortly after Obama was first elected in 2008 the birther movement was born. Those who subscribed to that belief insisted that Obama was not qualified to hold office due to the fact that he is not a 'natural born citizen' based on the fact that both of his parents were not American citizens and Hussein's oft contested place of birth. All of the 'experts' sallied forth with their evidence, leading to years of conservatives posting 'Wake Up America' and telling all that Obama had usurped the office of the Presidency.
Now, these years later, conservatives have found a new favorite in Ted Cruz, a man who says what they hope to hear, and yet has the same exact qualifications or the lack thereof, as Barrack Obama; the only difference being that we are certain that Cruz was born in a different country and can only speculate that Obama was.
Wherein lies the difference?
My conservative friends and allies, the MSM is going to rake you over the coals for hypocrisy. Allow me to post one of Saul Alinsky's rules for radicals...
RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
Rest assured that not only does Obama live by that rule, so too do his supporters in the media, and they are going to have a field day. They will set out to crucify not only Ted Cruz but his followers as well.
Ted Cruz, I do believe, is an honest man, and in the world of today's corrupt politicians, honest men make many enemies. Thus far he has gained a multitude of such adversaries who would love to see his head on a pike for his efforts to enlighten Americans as to what is taking place in our nation's capitol.
The simple fact of the matter is that Senator Cruz cannot win the Republican nomination without the support of the GOP and they are committed to seeing him become a sacrificial lamb. This man of integrity has served America well, exposing the fact that the leaders we have sent to Washington are turning on us in scorn as a people who do not matter.
Ted Cruz is a man with a message and knows full well what often happens to the messenger, but he intends to persevere nonetheless. In my opinion even he does not believe that he can win; it is all about the 'Message'. As a senator he can only accomplish so much, but the platform of a man seeking the Oval Office puts him before so many more Americans. How many of our people have taken to the internet posting 'Wake Up America'? If Americans are to ever wake up it will be due to the efforts of Ted Cruz, and none other. He is risking it all for the sake of this nation, and as political aspirants go I respect him as none other, and yet know that he will never attain the Presidency.
And what makes me so certain that the 'Message' comes before all else? The history of Ted Cruz! That's what. Below in Suggested Reading are a collection of essays that I have written about this amazing man. One that I hope you will take the time to read is All Is Not As It Seems In Washington. The following four paragraphs are excerpted from that article and should prove to be enlightening as to Cruz's motives, as he began a battle he knew that he could not hope to win, but in losing he exposed the truth. I cannot help but believe that his bid for the Oval Office is much the same.
“Forcing a vote on the constitutionality of Obama's amnesty is important for two reasons,” Cruz said in a statement his office provided to Breitbart News. “First, since President Obama enacted his unilateral amnesty after the elections, Democrats have never been made to answer for it. Tonight, they will and they will show America whether they stand with a lawless President, who is defying the will of the voters or the millions of Americans who want a safe and legal immigration system.”
Cruz went on to detail more reasons why this fight was important.
“Second, it allows Republicans to also show they are committed to ending Obama's amnesty once and for all in the next Congress,” Cruz said. "If we agree it is indeed unconstitutional, we have no business funding it when the GOP controls Congress next year. The Constitution matters, and we must defend it. That is why we have fought so hard to ensure this vote.”
Now back to the first line of that excerpt: “Forcing a vote on the constitutionality of Obama's amnesty is important for two reasons,”. Not content to simply allow an up or down vote and lose, as he most certainly would have lost, the brilliant senator turned the vote into a referendum on the Constitutionality of Obama's Amnesty plan. And in the first line of the second paragraph he tells us that he gave his fellow Republicans one last chance to do the right thing "Second, it allows Republicans to also show they are committed to ending Obama's amnesty once and for all in the next Congress,”.
None there had the wisdom to grasp what Ted Cruz had just done. We all know that Obama's unilateral Amnesty is unconstitutional. Cruz identified the vote as a measure to determine who would support the Constitution and who would follow a lawless President. He and twenty one other Republicans voted in favor of the Constitution. The rest chose to abandon it in favor of the leftist agenda.
Senator Cruz has a long and bitter battle ahead of him and I believe that he is up to the struggle. From far and wide they shall rally to shut this man up, to stop his message and put an end to the American dream once and for all. They have a plan for this nation's future and Ted Cruz plans to expose it.
I have seen many post that the left fears the Senator and yes they do. They are not afraid that he will ever lead this nation. Their fear is what he will tell it. He is feared not only by the left but by members of his own party, and now even Fox News has joined in the rancorous assault. Ask yourself why a man so loved by so many is under continual assault not only from those we expect to oppose him but also by those who should promote his views.
George Patton once stated..."Moral courage is the most valuable and usually the most absent characteristic in men."
None could ever say that Ted Cruz lacks moral courage, and that is why he stands out among his corrupt associates in Washington D.C.. That is also why he is beginning a battle on behalf of the American people that he knows he cannot win.
