I will always celebrate the 4th of July. Since I was a child it was my favorite holiday, even over Christmas. I keenly remember the Bicentennial in 1976, it was such a huge thing! Imagine, 200 years of freedom! ‘Mine eyes have seen the Glory‘, I thought. Not one thing wasn’t red, white and blue. It was glorious.
Not so recently so many of our Constitutional rights have been tread upon, shoved aside, treated as useless trash. Our Declaration of Independence shows our break from tyranny and persecution, only to be shunned and sneered at. The greatest country in the world is now a laughing stock and circus side show.
The United States of America accepted the worst of the worst, the best of the best, and the very least of these. While doing so, we have allowed the tail to wag the dog to the point of being unrecognizable. This greatest country allows two of the most monumental and extreme entitlements, immoralities, desecrations, and defilements ever in the history of this country: Abortion and gay marriage.
