Happy Independence Day, I Think

The 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays, of course Easter and Christmas have to precede the 4th.  The 4th is filled with family and fun, grilling out and games and then of course we have to honor those men who so long ago, risked literally everything in the quest for a better country, a free country, independent from an overbearing government.

From the very beginning America has been defined by it’s independent spirit, it’s rugged individualism that has meant so much to the growth and maintenance of this vast land mass.

From the beginning the American citizens have fought to keep us free.  From the Revolution that set America on it’s glorious course, to the Civil War (which Gettysburg is celebrating the 150th anniversary of that important battle, as I write this) which set all Americans free, no matter the color of their skin, to World War II in which America along with her allies beat back fascism and tyranny from the European continent, to this very day where the American military is trying to keep Islamic terrorism off our shores.

Yet, as we celebrate the 4th this year we do so knowing so many of our once held freedoms have been ripped from us.  If we are conservative we risk having the IRS knocking on our doors.  If you would like to have a conservative non-profit, forget it, the IRS will stale your application, rendering your organization useless and give away the list of your donors to liberal groups opposed to your ideology, to be used to silence donors.  We all know the NSA is listening in on all our calls.  If you are in the media and publish articles in opposition of the Obama administration you will have your phones tapped and your computers searched.

In some states your firearms will be confiscated if you are on anti-depressants, especially if you have served in the military.

The Catholic church is being bullied into accepting the  birth control and abortifacient  mandate.  Recently it was discovered that Catholics are now banned from owning their own health insurance companies, because they would not include the birth control mandates.  Catholics are quickly becoming the same thing to Obama that  the Jews were to Hitler.  The Jewish people, especially the orthodox Jews, are in the same boat with the Catholics in the eyes of Obama.

It has been established that we the American people have been slowly losing a number of our freedoms though the decades.  This move was born under Woodrow Wilson and slowly creep up on the American public, until now under the Obama administration where the American people have never lost so much in so little time.

Patrick Henry once said, “Give me Liberty or give me Death”.  That has now changed to, Give me a Obama phone or give me more welfare.  How the founding fathers must be rolling over in their graves today.

Try to forget about what we have lost so far, and enjoy your Independence Day!
