What the 4th of July REALLY represents and why tears are more appropriate than cheers.Submitted by JohnGalt on Sat, 07/06/2013 - 04:11
Most Americans have never really thought through just exactly what it is we are "celebrating" when we celebrate the 4th of July, "Independence Day". If you peel back the layers of the onion, what you will finally come to at the center is almost the exact Opposite of what people think. We are celebrating a Right we have LOST, a Right we NO LONGER HAVE. We EXIST, as an Independent Nation, by virtue of a Right that our Founders shed blood for... that we no longer have and we don't have the guts to reclaim, the Right of a small group of contrarian Rabble and Incorrigible Malcontents to dissolve the political chains that bind them and SECEDE from the jurisdiction of those who desire to control them. We no longer have that Right. But we go ahead and Celebrate the 4th just as though we do, as though nothing has changed. May God have mercy on us all as we go, as obedient sheeple, onward into the future "they" have planned for us. The Height of Irony is that we Honor, as one of America's Greatest Presidents, the very President who killed hundreds of thousands of Americans to take that Right away from us. Abraham Lincoln.
