July 4th is a day that means fun and games to many people. Some might even wave a flag and wear red, white, and blue, but they have no idea what the significance of the day is. They ooh and ah when the fireworks explode and even join in the cheering at the end of the program. Unfortunately, these are mostly collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats, all virtually the same) living in the United States. Everything they believe is the opposite of why we celebrate Independence Day.
Independence Day is just that, the day the United States celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. It was through this document that the American Colonists said we declare we are free from the tyranny of government and the demand that we conform to one way of thought. The Declaration of Independence states that we the people now recognize that our Natural Rights of Live, Liberty, and Property or as Thomas Jefferson stated, the Pursuit of Happiness comes from God. Government has no right to control, limit, or abolish our Life, Liberty, and Property, or Pursuit of Happiness. Please, contemplate that for a minute and then do a count and notice just how many ways the Collectivists now demand that government control our Life, Liberty, and Property or Pursuit of Happiness.
Independence Day also celebrates the day we the people declared that we would now be sovereign, and government would be the servant. The Declaration of Independence states that the government, as servant receives its power from we the people.
The Declaration of Independence said that the rights of the individual are protected and no longer does the individual have to conform to the dictates of the collective or the state.
Collectivists celebrate July 4th. Individualists celebrate Independence Day. Which do you celebrate??
