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.
1980...It seems so long ago, and almost in a galaxy far far away. How far we have come since then, and the journey has been all downhill. In 1980 Ronald Reagan was campaigning for the Presidency, Americans had grown weary of our leftward trek toward the socialist Utopia envisioned by Jimmy Carter, and Neil Diamond's movie the 'Jazz Singer' was taking America by storm. We were a different people then, weary of failed promises from failed leaders. Our responsible citizens had long since rejected the propositions put forth by the flower children, and the peace sign adorned few VW buses. In short, America was on the way to a renewal in both our patriotism and our pride in the American way, and it showed. Four years into the Reagan Presidency Lee Greenwood wrote and recorded 'God Bless The USA' and it was an indicator of a great American rebirth. There is no doubt about it. Those two songs were written by patriots, for patriots, and those words mean as much today as they did then, but only to those who truly love this nation. I have much to say below about what has taken place since then but if you would care to pause briefly and hear both of those songs once again, they are here;
'Coming To America', and 'God Bless The USA'.
