Declare Independence ... Don't Let Them Do That To You


Hot dogs, baseball, beer and fireworks ... oh, the wonderful holiday of Independence Day every July 4th.  

 

I hope that amid the enjoyment of this wonderful day you take the time to do a quick overview of why we celebrate.

 

The Declaration of Independence ...

 

Read the whole thing here, but I particularly like this part:

[A]ll experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security [emphasis added]

In that document it describes the things the British King was repsonsible at that time as examples and evidence of a "long train of abuses and usurpations" ...

 

In modern times, there's another train of abuses from the Federal Government: Drones, kinetic military action (undeclared roving global wars), funding and arming those who would harm innocent Americans if given the chance, the IRS, the NSA, fusion centers ... The Affordable Healthcare Act ...

 

Today should be a day of reflection and a time for decisions.  Which route shall we choose?  Despotism?  Or liberty, freedom and self determination?

 

Declare Independence!  

 

And now it's time for an amazing Bjork song.  The video is also great.  Enjoy.
