The Declaration of Independence, along with the US Constitution, is arguably the free world’s finest attestation to the values that underpin the world’s most influential Republic. Reflect on it today, and contemplate the consequences if Americans embrace tyranny right here at home. Think about the phrase, “Consent of the Governed”. Does that still resonate here, in the land of the EPA, the land of the “Affordable Care Act”, the land of the $135,000 fine for refusal to violate one’s religious beliefs? Think about it, while you’re enjoying the fireworks tonight.
And give thanks to those Founding Fathers who bequeathed the Greatest Nation on God’s Green Earth to you.
