How independent are we? Not very independent, but yet we still celebrate this day. The principles of the Declaration of Independence do not apply to today’s day and age. So why do we celebrate this day? So we can see fireworks? Well that is nice and all, the food and celebration is nice, but do you know why you are celebrating this day? Shouldn’t we fight for it instead of celebrating something that does not exist anymore?
Instead of lighting off fireworks, we should really walk around and introduce ourselves to our neighbors, to our fellow people. Look at them and know that we are working together for a better tomorrow. Why do we not talk to each other about our planetary issues and how we can fix these issues, then once we fix these things we can then celebrate for our freedom. We are not free. We are a Government social experiment with chemical and weather warfare among other things.
Let them know that we know and we will not stand for this any longer, but we do not, we go along with the masses and accept the status quo. Why? Why do you not write letters to your state and government representatives and inundate them with letters of how we want change and how we would like to see this done. I have written many letters to the President of the United States as he is a friend of mine on Twitter, so I can Direct Message him. Now that I know he is tweeting from this account when he uses B.O. at the end of the Tweet, it is in fact him. So that I know, but I do hope he gets my concerns. I also sent some money to help his campaign along and I hope that I am one of the 4 people to have dinner with him. I do hope he chooses me, I would like all of you to comment on this and put your concerns and I will put them together and hopefully I will be able to hand them to the President of the United States, Barack Obama, that is a dream that I hope comes true, I have a lot of concerns and perhaps with all of you, we can find solutions, and present them to the President.
Are we independent, free?
As we celebrate our independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain by the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, I would challenge us all to consider if we are independent and free or dependent and enslaved as individuals of this great country.
I have always told my daughters to strive to be independent through higher education, developing marketable skills, demonstrating impeccable work ethic and sound decision making. Stand alone with defined vision and you will attract worthy relationships. Make it your goal to pursue those who would provide for you and your provider could wind up being your taskmaster. Independence gives you options that dependency never sees.
About 45 percent of all Americans receive some type of government entitlement. (Funny, but I thought the only rights Americans were constitutionally “entitled to” was life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness). When 51 percent of Americans begin receiving government payments that will be … well Thomas Jefferson said it best: “The Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”
Our independence is slowly being lured away by highly-corrupt Washington bureaucrats that know power is obtained through the class warfare of taking from producers and giving to entitlement addicts. Are you one of the huddled masses yearning to breathe free or are you reaching for the government air mask that just dropped from the ceiling panel above your head?
But our true freedom does not come from man, nor government, but from our own freewill decision to chose between Savior and eternal tormentor. Jesus Christ has paid the price for all of our sins and provides the only truly authentic independence from this world’s pressures of conformity and compromise that enslave us.
