On this day, two hundred and forty two years ago, a room full of men representing the British-ruled colonies of America signed a document. A document that would declare that the colonies would no longer be the plaything of a tyrannical ruling body who would deny Them representation in said ruling body. The colonies would no longer suffer unfair taxes, or laws that did not fit the way of life for those living in the colonies. These men signed this document declaring Themselves to be free men of a new nation, a new breed of man.
This document was The Declaration of Independence.
Sparing a lengthy history lesson, The United States of America went on to become a land of unparalleled freedom and opportunity. Where America went, the rest of the world followed. Advances in all scientific fields, including the invention of the very internet this is being transmitted on, to the pioneering of the technology that displays this text. We put men on the moon, and on their own property here on Earth.
Where tyranny would present itself, America was the worlds fist line of defense. We stood where others could not. And continue to stand today, much to the dismay of those who would take liberty from You. Indeed, America's greatest threat comes not from any foreign military, but from subversive actors already inside the United States. These actors, and those unintelligent fools that would believe their lies and spread their will, work tirelessly to undermine America, what it stands for, and it's people. They wish to turn a free people to an enslaved mass. They would put themselves above others as the elite, and the rest as cattle.
They've gone by many names; Communists, Socialists, Marxists, “Third position National Socialists”, Etc. Regardless of the name, these subversive elements all have the same goal: Pure authoritarian rule. The elite few controlling the masses. And their main vector of attack? Shame. They will shame You, make You feel weak, Destroy Your faith, turn You against Your very nation and countrymen, make You see Your homeland as evil, and their will as good.
They will make You afraid. Afraid of a ghostlike threat that they claim is responsible for all of Your woes. Then, at Your weakest, they will take You into their cult-like world, another useful idiot ready to parrot their thoughts for them, ever afraid of a boogieman around every corner.
To this threat We must remain ever vigilant. We must remain strong.
But do not dismay. For on this day, We celebrate. We still stand! We are, despite our flaws and our errors, still a free people in a land of prosperity. A poor life in America is still better than a successful life in a staggering amount of the world's nations. We can speak where others cannot. We can do as others are not allowed. We can better ourselves where others are held back.
So today, on this fourth of July, think of those before You, who gave so much for this land, as well as the woes You Yourself have endured... THEN PARTY LIKE IT'S YOUR ONLY JOB IN LIFE, IN THEIR HONOR AND YOURS! For We are Americans, and Our lives and liberties are not to be taken.
Happy fourth of July, and:
MAY GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
