I will always celebrate the 4th of July. Since I was a child it was my favorite holiday, even over Christmas. I keenly remember the Bicentennial in 1976, it was such a huge thing! Imagine, 200 years of freedom! ‘Mine eyes have seen the Glory‘, I thought. Not one thing wasn’t red, white and blue. It was glorious.
Not so recently so many of our Constitutional rights have been tread upon, shoved aside, treated as useless trash. Our Declaration of Independence shows our break from tyranny and persecution, only to be shunned and sneered at. The greatest country in the world is now a laughing stock and circus side show.
The United States of America accepted the worst of the worst, the best of the best, and the very least of these. While doing so, we have allowed the tail to wag the dog to the point of being unrecognizable. This greatest country allows two of the most monumental and extreme entitlements, immoralities, desecrations, and defilements ever in the history of this country: Abortion and gay marriage.
The Supreme Court has become our landlord, dictating what we have to do rather than protect what we were given at the price of every dead soldier that fought for it. All we have to show for it is over 55 MILLION aborted children, hypocritical rainbows, a dictator and lies. America is a washed up old lady that depends on a not so new socialistic regime to eat and a place to sleep.
I cannot imagine there could be a Tricenntenial; our freedoms gone, God erased, what will there be to celebrate?
Our responsibilities as Americans is to uphold our sacred documents, rights, and freedoms even in the face of pure evil. Ultimately, we are an island of so-called fundamentalists shunned by our own. We are refugees in our own country. But this bad dream isn’t over. America can still persevere, if we allow her.
It’s Independence Day…just not so independent anymore.
