RESTORING AMERICA

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.

What's Really Behind The War On The Confederate Flag And The South - Submitted by Dee Fatouros


Make no mistake. The war on the Confederate Flag is but another cover for the War Against America led by this president and his handlers.

Maybe I'm adding 2+2 and coming up with 5, but I see a pattern. The South has the greatest concentration of religious and patriotic states. Considering the leftist war on Christianity and Obama's war on the American Military, the South 
is an easy target. It has a high percentage of membership in both camps; thus, can be easily deemed as "intolerant" by the administration's own hate filled useful idiots.

Again doublethink is the order of the day.

No matter what one's personal feelings may be on religion and patriotism, extreme concern over this matter is must be raised. By vilifying one segment of the nation, the set up begins. The Globalists will delight at the internal rot consuming America and the last bastion of freedom will crumble into their hands.  

The following posts and excerpts give some cogent facts:

First, A Bit Of Background:
Many Northern States talked about secession as far back as James Madison's administration
In fact, southern states were not the only states that talked about secession. After the southern states seceded, the State of Maryland fully intended to join them. In September of 1861, Lincoln sent federal troops to the State capital and seized the legislature by force in order to prevent them from voting. Federal provost marshals stood guard at the polls and arrested Democrats and anyone else who believed in secession. A special furlough was granted to Maryland troops so they could go home and vote against secession. Judges who tried to inquire into the phony elections were arrested and thrown into military prisons. There is your great “emancipator,” folks.

And before the South seceded, several northern states had also threatened secession. Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island had threatened secession as far back as James Madison’s administration. In addition, the states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware were threatening secession during the first half of the nineteenth century–long before the southern states even considered such a thing. much more here

This reminds me of the Salem Witch Trials. It’s political correctness hysteria and group think run amok. You see crying, hyperventilating politicians on both sides of the aisle rushing to pull down Confederate flags, statues and dig up bodies, for God’s sake. They want to eradicate the Confederacy from our history now – how very Stalinesque of them. Now, there are calls to ‘adjust’ the Constitution and rewrite it… claiming the US Constitution is a symbol of the old Confederacy that needs to be reorganized and censored. This has gone way too far. They are labeling our founding documents as outdated and obsolete. Whither America? As long as you are on a witch hunt for racists, you’ll have to purge most of the Democratic Party as well. Evidently, American history, free speech and thought are now crimes against the State and they want them dealt with permanently. continue here

Fascism Alert:
The left has upped its anti-Southern rhetoric once again. Politico recently published an article that blamed the South for all the violence in America, and for impeding “progress” that would make us more like Great Britain and Canada.

Haven’t you always wanted to be like Great Britain, a country that survived World War II only because we helped them? Or like Canada, where a man with a gun and three bullets could take over half the country?

Susan Glasser, the author of the article, wrote, “The United States would be much less exceptional in general, and in particular more like other English-speaking democracies such as Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand were it not for the effects on U.S. politics and culture of the American South.”
Oh, please.

She didn’t stop there. Glaser continued stating, “I don’t mean this in a good way. A lot of the traits that make the United States exceptional these days are undesirable, like higher violence and less social mobility. Many of these differences can be attributed largely to the South.”

How many Southern cities looted stores over police shootings? If the South is to blame for all of America’s violence, how exactly would Glaser explain Chicago, New York City, Detroit, Baltimore, and every other major northern city full of crime?

Glaser then essentially called for the South to be cleansed by a wave of immigrants and liberals.

She wrote, “But there is hope: A combination of demographic change and generational change is weakening the ability of the old-fashioned South to skew American politics and culture in the future. Peripheral Southern states like Florida and Virginia are increasingly competitive, and the Deep South may join them in time.

“In Texas once-reactionary cities like Houston and Dallas are competing with Austin as tolerant meccas for transplants who prefer the Sun Belt to the Old South. Immigration into the South from other countries and American regions is breaking down local oligarchies and old folkways.” (H/T The Gateway Pundit)

Clearly this lady doesn’t understand the South very well. Liberals claim that almost every generation has been “weakening” the South, yet it never actually gets any weaker.

The South remains strong, despite the pressure of liberals to destroy it.

Is The South A Threat To The Agenda:

Patriotism
Some States Have Much Higher Enlistment Rates Than Others
...Differences exist at the regional level as well. In 2013, 44% of all military recruits came from the South region of the U.S. despite it having only 36% of the country's 18-24 year-old civilian population."
Here's the data on state-by-state enlistment rates but grouped into regional subsets:

THE MOST AND LEAST PATRIOTIC STATES IN THE U.S.A.
Can you guess which state in the union holds the American flag the highest? Quirky real-estate company Movoto ranked the most to least patriotic states in the U.S.A. according to data pulled from the 2012 U.S. Census, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Google Trends, Facebook, and Wikipedia.

The criteria for indicating the level of patriotism within a state population consisted of:

    -National Historic Landmarks per Capita
    -Veterans per Capita
    -Money Spent to Fund Veterans
    -Percent of Residents That Voted in the Last Presidential Election
    -People Who Google For American Flags to buy
    -People Who List America as an Interest on Facebook
Top 10 Most Patriotic States:

10. Arizona

9. Alabama

8. Alaska

7. Georgia

6. Florida

5. Virginia

4. Wyoming

3. North Carolina

2. Maine

1. South Carolina


Red = very patriotic. Blue = not very patriotic. Movoto more here




Christian Religion:
If you want to know why our symbols, monuments, and people are currently under attack, look to the one thing the South has always been, Christian! Though we have failed at times to live out rightly the truths of the Christian faith, we have always striven to do so. And despite their efforts to slander our heroes and our culture, they have yet been able to suppress Christ’s Church.
And they will never! more

Map: The most religious states in America
“The strong religious culture in the South reflects a variety of factors, including history, cultural norms and the fact that these states have high Protestant and black populations — both of which are above average in their self-reported religious service attendance,” according to Gallup. “Utah’s No. 1 position on the list is a direct result of that state’s 59% Mormon population, as Mormons have the highest religious service attendance of any major religious group in the U.S.”
  




No matter what part of the nation we are from, we are all Americans. We cannot continue to let the enemy within manipulate us into dividing ourselves into "victim groups" which leads us to fight each other as opposed to challenging our oppressors. Unfortunately, they have accomplished just that to a large degree.
We must step back so as to see the entire picture, not just the part our enemies want us to see.

Our "Leaders" Deliberately Provoking A Destructive Cultural Divide


We knew this was coming. One way or another The Powers That Be will create some type of chaos so as to invoke  martial law.

Apparently the turmoil provoked by Sharpton and Jackson and funded by different Soros related groups  are not achieving the goal--chaos and anarchy.

America On Life Support Part II 


When our current President assumed office he began to make many "mistakes". People wondered if he were truly in over his head and/or just had terrible advisers. Others suspected that he was indeed, no fool but had an agenda, to soften and weaken America for the Globalist, Islamic, Communist takeover.





America On Life Support Courtesy Of A Corrupted System Part I 


Many have awakened to the duplicity of our so called "leaders". With the exception of a few, they do not have the best interests of America in mind. As indicated in recent and not so recent news reports, legislators are frequently bought off, serve their financiers, and live large at tax payer expense. For a depressing and astoundingly long list, both past and present, go here .

As for our corrupt presidents, go here. The reader may disagree with some of the list, or feel that it could use some additions.



No Longer A "Conspiracy Theory"-- The Elitist Agenda Is Out Of The Closet


Society is well governed when its people obey the magistrates, and the magistrates obey the law. Solon

The above quote states what America was intended to be. Clearly, that is no longer the case. Not only do we now have a lawless administration, but we are no longer fully governed by our own constitution and laws. For well over the past century, there have been several different ideologies purporting to be the best to institute a global governance. Fascism, Communism, Islamism, Progressivism are the main actors currently on the stage.


Fifth Column: The Muslim Brotherhood

“We can ignore reality, but we cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.” Ayn Rand

I have often commented that the harbingers of the truth are excoriated, demonized, ridiculed, etc.
Regarding the pathetic state into which America has sunk, much of the citizenry is seemingly either in a state of denial or so overwhelmed by everyday life that it is impossible to get a grasp on reality.
