I think we should change it to revolution day. Independence was won later. Revolution day also reminds people of the true nature of the forth, something even patriotic celebrators need to be reminded of when they use the holiday to support our military.

Remember, this is when we basically decided, hey, lets shoot guns at our own military until they go somewhere else. It was that crazy. And we should be thankful it was done.

Help support my push for a revolutionary war memorial in DC. For some reason the politicians don't want us to have one.

Probably because with the growth of international communication has come the increased awareness that other countries have Independence Days as well, and "Happy American Independence Day" is just inviting some SJW asshole to jump your case about "American"

In any event, a Happy Rube Goldberg's Birthday to everyone!

Hell, I've been calling it "Exploding Freedom Day" most of the day.
