Significance of the 4th Of July

The real significance of the 4th of July is, of course, declaring our Independence. Though that fact happened before securing our freedom in the Revolution.

That is something to ponder. Maybe the lesson is the Declaration did not accomplish the entire objective. Yet July 4th is the day and holiday we celebrate that started it all.

It would be years after the July 4th, 1776 Declaration that we finally assured our independence. We sort of glamorize it as the day independence was accomplished.

Fortunately, an alternative history has never been written. Though today we see signs that our independence is vulnerable. We see signs that it all could be squandered. And after all we have been through as a country since then, there are real threats that abound us.

Take for instance the Manchurian presidency of Barack Obama:

America really did have a Manchurian Candidate in the White House

By L. Todd Wood – Washington Times – Sunday, July 1, 2018
ANALYSIS/OPINION:

After returning from a tour of some of the war zones in the Middle East — which ended with the Free Iran Gathering 2018 in Paris — I am struck by the realization that America really did have a Manchurian Candidate in The White House for eight years.

If you look at the evidence, there really is no other conclusion. The calamitous consequences of the Obama presidency will be felt for the foreseeable future.

No Patriot

For the occasion, mainstream media asked some people on the street if they were proud of America? Many either said “not now” or “used to be.” It is quantified. Their pride in America seems based mostly on who is president at the time. Stunning.

How’s that Independence working for you?

Happy 4th of July.

Patriotism gets bombed with red glares

Guess where?

Ashamed to be an American? Towns crack down on American pride

By Todd Starnes Published July 01, 2016 | Fox News

The Star-Spangled Banner survived the rocket’s red glare and bombs bursting in air – only to face a modern-day threat – silly town ordinances and petty bureaucrats.

I’m not sure if it’s an epidemic of anti-American nincompoopery sweeping across the fruited plain or if it’s a general lack of common sense. Maybe it’s both. I’ll let you be the judge of that.

In Lexington, South Carolina Marine veteran Bob Michaelis was told to remove a patriotic display from his mattress company.

Mr. Michaelis lined the front of his store with American flags – to honor our troops.

“We got 10 flags up,” he told television station WIS. “I thought maybe it was about time we return the patriotism in America. There’s not enough of it. It seems to be lost.”

But instead of congratulating Bob’s patriotism, the town fathers dispatched the law. He was informed that the flags violated an ordinance.

“The town of Lexington says they got to come down because there’s an ordinance in place,” he said.

The town administrator told WIS they did not issue Bob a citation nor did they tell him to take down the flags. …/

Welcome to the 4th of July under ‘new and revised’ Amerika. Not on campus at Berkeley but on main street in South Carolina. The silence from Liberals will be deafening.

No, Libs, patriotism is not an “emotional thing.” But the new and revised America is driven by Emotionalism and P/C BS. Where are the lists of “most P/C places in the US?”

So LGBT pride is in — American pride is out of fashion. Didn’t know it had a shelf life.

OUR BIRTHDAY

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.

THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES
WE THE PEOPLE of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

It is the VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the VETERAN, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.
It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer, who have given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the VETERAN, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.

THANK THE VETERAN AND ALL THE MILITARY WHO HAVE MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR US TO CELEBRATE THIS BIRTHDAY

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US

Happy Birthday to us
Every Fourth of July
It’s when freedom was born
Why so many did die

So wherever you go or whatever you do
Take a moment for prayer to remember those who
Gave their all for this land and for me and for you

Happy Birthday to us
Sing as loud as can be
That the whole world will know
We will always be free
(Repeat Chorus)

Happy Birthday to us
May we ever be true
To our daughters and sons
And the Red, White, and Blue
(Repeat Chorus)

WITHOUT THE FOURTH OF JULY THERE WOULD BE NO OTHER HOLIDAYS

Let us thank all those who made it possible to celebrate this party today, the USAF – USA – USCG – USM – USN

UNITED STATES AIR FORCE

“Off we go into the wild blue yonder, climbing high into the sun;
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder, At ’em boys, Give ‘er the gun! (Give ‘er the gun now!)
Down we dive, spouting our flame from under, Off with one helluva roar!
We live in fame or go down in flame. Hey! Nothing’ll stop the U.S. Air Force!”

UNITED STATES ARMY

Over hill, over dale,
We will hit the dusty trail,
And those Caissons go rolling along.
Up and down, in and out,
Counter march and left about,
And those Caissons go rolling along,
For its “hie-hie-hee”,
In the Field Artillery,
Shout out your numbers loud and strong,
For wher-e’er we go,
You will always know,
That those Caissons go rolling along.
UNITED STATES COAST GUARD
From North and South and East and West,
The Coast Guard’s in the fight.
Destroying subs and landing troops,
The Axis feels our might.
For we’re the first invaders,
On every fighting field.
Afloat, ashore, on men and Spars,
You’ll find the Coast Guard shield.
UNITED STATES MARINES
From the Halls of Montezuma
To the Shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country’s battles
In the air, on land and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
of United States Marine.

UNITED STATES NAVY

Anchors Aweigh, my boys, Anchors Aweigh.
Farewell to college joys, we sail at break of
day-ay-ay-ay.
Through our last night on shore, drink to the foam,
Until we meet once more:
Here’s wishing you a happy voyage home.

To all those who served our REPUBLIC or who had a loved one serve – my deepest gratitude!!!!!!

Happy Independence Day!
