The Fourth of July, the nativity of our independence, the precious beginnings of our emancipation, must be reverently preserved and celebrated as a day of complete human liberation and reflection, which is The United States of America.
We should never forget all those in the armed forces and civilian personnel that unselfishly defended and protected us in the past and present, throughout the world, who left their families, went fearlessly into battle, suffered disabilities, gave the ultimate sacrifice or was blessed by God to come home safe, sound and unharmed. We will be forever in their debt and they will always be, for all eternity, our true brave heroes.
We must never forget all our beloved forefathers that had the strength, courage and insight to envision a dream and molded it into a glorious reality. Their courageous foresight and vision was to establish an independent Nation and to live free from tyranny and abuse. These brilliant architects, of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness had the ability, strength and fortitude to unselfishly risk their own lives, the lives of their families, together with the possibility of losing everything for the sake of remaining free. This sacrifice actually did happen to some of the patriots. They not only talked the talk, but walked the walk in face of sure death, if apprehended. Our first American heroes were willing to fight for their freedoms and inalienable God Given Rights, as individuals. They truly believed in Patrick Henryâ€™s quote, â€œGive me Liberty or Give me Deathâ€
Whether anyone realizes it or not we are faced, today, with the same dilemmas, except itâ€™s not with Great Britain, but with our own government. Think this is very humorous; well letâ€™s look at the comparisons more closely.
We are presently facing the same humiliating dilemmas, today, in the United States of America. We are cursed with our own renegade, House of Commons and Lords, called the United States Congress ad Senate, together with our own King George, our President Barack Hussein Obama, â€œThe Chosen Oneâ€. Their number one rule, primarily in existence, is to enhance their authority over the populous. Can we actually and truthfully say, without a doubt, that we have an elected body of government of, by and for the people? Especially, when we are being forced to comply with the hardships of a runaway budget, bailouts, private company takeovers by the government, ignoring the Constitution, thievery, high taxes, and additional taxes, lack of ambition, social leeches, incompetence, and vanity, combined, with countless measures of mandatory, compulsory freedom eliminating government controls, policies and regulations over our daily lives.
They stymied our freedom of speech, told us what to eat, compromised our religious symbols, and holidays, humiliated and changed the meanings of our sacred National holidays, together with using despicable strong arm tactics and corruption initiated by the Socialist Marxist Democrats that vigorously rammed Obamacare down our throats, against the will of the people. Do we actually have any control over our government operations? Do we actually have taxation with representation or are we just living a myth?
Iâ€™m in no way shape or form authorizing, advocating or suggesting that we have another violent American Revolution, or to forcefully overthrow the government, on the contrary. Iâ€™m only pointing out that our forefather did all the hard work for us, by astutely and cleverly developing numerous, multiple peaceful tools of non-violent weaponry, to defend against and counteract any and all negative inflictions of authoritarian rule. These are the powers of the vote, checks and balances of the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of our government, and our guaranteed God Given precious rights stated in the United States Constitution. These must be utilized and preserved at all cost and must never be compromised.
There were so many great men, women, races, creeds, colors and religions that intelligently and physically initiated, fought and died in creating the birth of this great nation, in which we must be forever grateful. I couldnâ€™t possibly name all of them in this article. Letâ€™s start at the beginning by recognizing the most fascinating piece of literature that marked the primary stages of our Independence from Great Britain, â€œThe Declaration of Independenceâ€. This openly announced that we, the people of the 13 Colonies had stated in writing that they broke free from England and proclaimed their freedom to the world, ending their forced degrading subservient role of indentured servitude. The finalization of these scared words which was primarily written by Thomas Jefferson released the albatross around their necks, which was choking the life out of them. These words marked the point of no return, and immediately stressed liberty and justice for all.
Fifty-six individuals from each of the original 13 colonies participated in the Second Continental Congress and signed the Declaration of Independence. Some of these names are unfortunately unknown patriots that were lost in our American history texts and classes, by the sacrilegious demeanor of the Progressives. They constantly and relentlessly try to humiliate these true American heroes, by omitting them from our history, falsely interpreting and attempting to rewrite the truth, just to further their own self serving gains which is to empower their own beliefs and ideologies on us all, by using every means at their disposal, to degrade our very existence as a great Nation, past, present and future. We must never, as the offspringâ€™s of these Great Americans, to become so complacent, as to allow these audacities to continue, without legitimate and legal protest.

Connecticut: Samuel Huntington, Roger Sherman, William Williams, Oliver Wolcott.
Delaware, George Read, Caesar Rodney, Thomas McKean.
Georgia: Button Gwinnett, Lyman Hall, George Walton.
Maryland: Charles Carroll, Samuel Chase, Thomas Stone, William Paca.

Virginia: Richard Henry Lee, Francis Lightfoot Lee, Carter Braxton, Benjamin Harrison, Thomas Jefferson, George Wythe, Thomas Nelson, Jr.
Happy Birthday America, May God Please Bless You Forever!
