Happy Independence Day

Flag

Thank God our founders had the courage to fight for what they believed in and that they were willing to die for this upstart country. The Declaration of Independence is an important document in our history and it is one that reminds us what happens when people live under the tyranny of an oppressive government. In 1776 it required sacrifice to get rid of tyranny, in 2008 it will only take the common sense to vote incumbents out.

Here is the Declaration.
Here is a part that people should remember, especially politicians:

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Remember the sacrifices to give us freedom, remember the men and women who fight for it and always remain ever vigilant. The tyranny of government is still very much alive and the more the beast grows, the more tyrannical it becomes.

God Bless America.

    When the day comes when we are required to fight for our freedom or submit to slavery, will we? Is our freedom worth dying for? Or is ANYTHING worth dying for now?

    There are MANY men and women who have indeed suffered and died for the freedoms we enjoy and I for one still think it is worth that and much more. I would fight to my death rather than be subjected as a slave to another country, religion, whatever. However, my preferred stance is not to die for my freedom but to kill the *** trying to take it away. :p
