Independence Day Requires Perpetual Vigilance
Our nation's Independence from the tyranny of England in 1776 has been maligned in every conceivable way by modern "wokeness".
They say that America was born because of white supremacy in order to perpetuate black slavery. They say that America is unredeemable because racism is endemic, institutionalized and systematized against them. They say they are ashamed of America.
The woke who saturate our public discourse seem to know enough to think they are right but not enough to know they are wrong.
America stood against tyranny. America abolished slavery. America provided economic freedom and opportunities for countless millions of citizens. America established and defended property rights, the rule of law and equal opportunity for those willing to work for it.
The Declaration of Independence so clearly states,
“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.”
This was the guiding principle at the founding of our nation and we should be rightly proud of it. That evil men, despotic politicians and greed-saturated oligarchs would try to corrupt America is understandable: The darkness hates the light.
It's up to the lovers of Freedom and Liberty to keep the light shining and to refuse to give darkness a stronghold.
Which is the whole point of the First Amendment. Speak up. Communicate. Gather. Educate. Resist evil. Lift up what is true and correct.
All of this is to say: Lift your head high and relish in the fruit of liberty secured during our Independence in 1776!
