INDEPENDENCE!

July 4, 2010

Happy Independence Day,  dear reader.

This is a day to celebrate. This is a day to remember the sacrifices that the signers of the Declaration of Independence made.  This is a day to consider, as an American, am I being ever vigilant to protect the rights that I have been blessed with?

Are you?

Are you ever vigilant to protect the liberty that the Founding Fathers put into the Bill of Rights?  With the recent passage of “The Disclose Act” Congress has signaled an interest in silencing criticism of incumbents. Would the signers of the Declaration of Independence have tolerated such behavior from their “representatives”?

Kahoonas

The signers of the Declaration of Independence had great big Kahoonas. They took a bold move, and many suffered for it. Remember – what they did was a criminal act under British law.  And many
Paid a Steep Price When one compares their own actions compared to those of the patriots of 1775, many of us are found lacking.

How to Celebrate

As we go forward on this anniversary, may I suggest that we actually read the complete Declaration of Independence???  If you are a parent, read it out loud to your children. Think about the causes that brought those bold men to risk their lives, and reassess your own. Think about where your own personal line in the sand (of encroachment of liberty) is, and what it would take to correct.  And then go out and act like a real American!

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY !!!
