Let Freedom Ring Now And Forever More! Happy 4th!
My fondest wishes to all for a blessed Independence Day to you and your families. I also wish the same for this great nation and that the youth of today truly learns and absorbs the majesty of what freedom and this country truly stand for historically as well as today.
Our founders engaged in a classic struggle of David vs. Goliath and what an amazing touch of Divine Providence we must all admit for such a glorious victory. But the struggle was just beginning friends. To build such a diverse nation with varied interests is a task I can consider almost insurmountable. Yet the brilliance of our Founders can not be denied. No doubt the Declaration of Independence is likely the greatest document for freedom ever written by the human hand. One might add the Constitution for good measure as equally brilliant.
But as the old saying goes "find the cost of freedom buried in the ground". A high price was indeed paid for this war of independence and treasure has been spent as well. In fact I am utterly amazed that our Founders pledged not only their lives but that of their families and fortunes as well. Try getting a cup of coffee from your Congressman today. Not likely to happen unless you pay. So as the great Bob Dylan is wont to say "the times they are a changing". Indeed Bob.
Those great documents have a nasty habit of being obfuscated, abused, misread, misinterpreted and mangled even by the great legal minds of our times. As to Congress they gave up on being concerned for our freedoms as guaranteed by same long ago. In fact if I may be so bold I would say they behave more in a fashion as the King we conquered in the late 18th century.Continued on the next page
