America, have a safe celebration today of our Independence. With all the problems our country faces we are still the greatest of all nations. Fly our flag proudly. Reflect on our past, stay strong, together we will overcome that which divides us and the challenges before us.
This needs to be reblogged over and over by many who believe We the People have the power to make change in our government and those that govern. The power those that govern have only have as much as we allow.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.—That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

This was written in 1981, just after Mr. Reagan was elected President of the United States for the first time. kqd

The day of our nation’s birth in that little hall in Philadelphia, [was] a day on which debate had raged for hours. The men gathered there were honorable men hard-pressed by a king who had flouted the very…

Borders, are lines of separation between two countries. They are surveyed and marked for a reason and yes it is segregation of people. There is a right way to enter this country and become a citizen. I have no problem with those that follow the law. The influx of illegals creates an over abundance of social problems, of which we have enough of our own. You don’t fix you problems by leaving a problem behind, coming here is a temporary fix for the illegal…….but places a heavier burden……yes burden on the American people. Soon, we look like the 3rd world country you left.

Get involved, make your government pay attention, this is the time.
