Happy Independence Day 2013 … Happy Birthday America … JULY 4, 2013 … “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA … HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!
Happy Birthday America, to what is still the greatest nation on Earth, the Home of the Free and the Land of the Brave. However, that being said, I can say that never in my lifetime has it been more the responsibility of Our generation, to maintain the freedoms and liberties that our Founding Fathers bestowed on us with their sacrifices. Never in out countries history how our liberties and freedoms been under such attack and it is not from any foreign power, it is from our own government. While you are celebrating July 4th today with family, friends and fireworks, remember that independence, liberty and freedom is not free. It comes at a cost. Those that volunteer to military service do their part; however, American citizens also need to do theirs.
God Bless the USA – Lee Greenwood
If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life,
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife.
I’d thank my lucky stars to be living here today,
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can’t take that away.
And I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.
Our government is supposed to be of, by and for the People, and deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. Thus, you are responsible for those that are elected and not elected. It is time for “We the People” to have the courage of those back in 1776 and make our government responsible to the people again. Enough is enough. I do not care what party affiliation you are, no one should be for the erosion of liberties that were provided to the people at the excuses and lies of politicians. Our government is supposed to work for us, not against us. A United States government is not supposed to be spying on innocent Americans and shredding the Constitution. Our government is not supposed to be continually passing ridiculous laws and regulations that restrict Americans from life, liberty in and the pursuit of happiness. A government is not supposed to allow an entity like the IRS to target a segment of its citizenship to treat as an enemy to benefit one political party, no matter what party is in office. Our government should never usurp the Bill of Rights and the US Constitution and treat “freedom of the press” as if it did not exist. Our government should never be allowed to pass into law with only one party vote, the take over of 1/6th of the US economy in healthcare and call it not a tax when passing it off to the American people, then calling it a tax when arguing it before the Supreme Court, only to have a corrupt SCOTUS by the lie. Finally, a government should be of, by and for the people. If it is not, we are in trouble. Brave Americans realized this in 1776 and did something about it, what we have become today is hardly what they envisions and is actually pretty much everything they fought against. What will We the People do today?
The Declaration of Independence: IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, 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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. (read the rest HERE)
Let us just remind all, especially those politicians in office, this country fought a War of Independence, not to become dependent on government and have those very freedoms that were so gallantly fought for taken away.
In 1776 “WE THE PEOPLE” fought a War for Independence and against a tyrannical government. Men fought and died to throw off a tyrannical government and sought to put one in place that was of, by and for the American people. I would dare say that our Founding Fathers would cringe to see what their brave efforts have been transformed into today. Never forget America, whether it be with a musket in 1776 or a vote in present day, it is your responsibility to uphold the following words from the Declaration of Independence signed this day in 1776 … “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 … But when a long train of abuses and usurpation’s, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government …” America, do not ever let your voice be silenced and it is your God given right to uphold the values, virtues and liberties that were fought for you 236 years ago. America is worth fighting for, and it is your responsibility to do so.
For those who think or try to weaken America and think they can take advantage of what is perceived as a current weak administration, America is much, much more than our government and elected politicians, even though they seemed to have forgotten that fact. American is ‘WE THE PEOPLE” and do not ever forget that. To those who would try and bring us down, Toby Keith sings it best … Courtesy of the red white and blue!!! Happy Birthday America!!!

Now this nation that I love
Has fallen under attack
A mighty sucker punch came flyin’ in
From somewhere in the back
Soon as we could see clearly
Through our big black eye
Man, we lit up your world
Like the 4th of July
Justice will be served
And the battle will rage
This big dog will fight
When you rattle his cage
And you’ll be sorry that you messed with
The U.S. of A.
`Cause we`ll put a boot in your ass
It`s the American way
Hey Uncle Sam
Put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty
Started shakin’ her fist
And the eagle will fly
Man, it’s gonna be hell
When you hear Mother Freedom
Start ringin’ her bell
And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you
