Independence Day 2013

      July  4, 2013    Patriot Post

Today marks the 237th birthday of our great nation. Let’s celebrate the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Have a blessed and safe Independence Day!

“Let the Fourth of July always be a reminder that here in this land, for the first time, it was decided that man is born with certain God-given rights; that government is only a convenience created and managed by the people, with no powers of its own except those voluntarily granted to it by the people. We sometimes forget that great truth, and we never should. Happy Fourth of July.” –Ronald Reagan, Independence Day, 1981

Independence Day “ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.” –John Adams

(Of course if you live in the Northeast where our freedom began, how sad you’re not actually very free anymore, and no where is that more true than in NY where we are 1 of only 4 states in the whole country that outright bans consumer fireworks. A nanny state on the verge of being a police state, Yeh, and it’s disgusting especially on this most cherished day!)

“God who gave us life gave us Liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.” –Thomas Jefferson (1774)
      Amid all the contemporary political and cultural contests… Lost in the din is the foundational endowment of Essential Liberty, and any debate that does not begin with this eternal truth will end with temporary deceits…

The Consummate Liberal Hypocrites

Do as I Say, Not as I Do (By no means advancing liberty, quite the opposite, they stifle it and worse yet outright violate it’s every principle!)

To paraphrase Mark Twain, “Suppose you were a liberal. And suppose you were a hypocrite. But I repeat myself.” Indeed, it’s a near-universal truth about Leftists that they are consummate hypocrites. Alexander has listed some notable examples, and we invite you to add to the list through reader comments…
