Independence Day 2011



Happy birthday, America!



Thanks to RP Free Speech for bringing the following video to my attention — an important reminder of how our freedom has been secured:


If you're of a mind to do some erudite reading for Independence Day, go HERE to read this essay by Frederick William Dane (pdf, hat tip to Right Truth). Pay special attention to pages 29 - 33. Excerpt below the fold:
Introduction

On July 4th of every year Americans celebrate "The Fourth of July." A large part of the American population does not even know that the holiday is legally, and therefore, correctly named Independence Day. It may be that they do not care, for in most people's minds the important matter is that it is a day off from work, … if they are employed. Six percent of all American citizens do not know when Independence Day is. One out of four Americans, 25 percent, have no idea of the historical significance of Independence Day. Furthermore, 70 percent of American citizens do not know what kind of a document the Constitution is. These statistics are sure to appeal to American communists, leftists, obots, progressives, socialists, and the like who have as their goal the destruction of the United States of America. They are well on their way to that goal by means of the takeover of the American Democrat Party – which is no longer democratic – and the usurpation of the office of the Presidency of the United States of America by Barack Hussein Obama. This patriotic author's goal is to combat their destructive politics.

In a few days the United States of America will celebrate the 235th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. This article is the author's contribution to the up-coming celebration. The essay delineates the wars in the American Colonies, the machinations of the European powers, the development of a nomenclature, and the establishment of the creed that would allow the Thirteen Original Colonies to emerge as "e pluribus unum."

European Wars in the American Colonies

Four European Wars were fought on American Colonial soil between 1689 and 1763. They are important events leading up to the Declaration of Independence because they aptly portray the allegiances of the Colonists vis-à-vis their European mother countries. It was out of these preceding wars that a conscience would be formed...

  1. Happy 4 th of july to you and your husband and all Americans.
    my little contribution today to your festivities:

    "The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more." John Adams.

  2. The first video with Wayne is wonderful.

  3. Reading this, I'm reminded of what a singular accomplishment our revolution for independence was. Look at how many have failed, strangled in the crib. Many more reverted to just another form of tyranny.

    Our revolution was special, but we are losing it through ignorance and passivity.

  4. I always gt a little suspicious of writers who do not mention Machiavelli's "Discourses" and his clear preference for a republican form of government. They want to make the idea uniquely American and that just isn't the case.

    He glosses over the Articles of Confederation and other failures which should give the 10th Amendment crowd some pause.

    He doesn't mention that many American's were monarchists, particularity in the south where the Revolutionary war was really a very nasty civil war.

    Man, does he hate Obummer, I smell a birther. Decent essay but nothing new.

  7. Machiavelli, a man who's country was filled with mercenary armies trying to exact tribute and impose strict catholicism upon all inhabitants... how dare he desire the protections of a secular "republican" system of government, eh duckmeister?

    Perhaps it goes without saying that there are always people who derive benefit from the status quo ante.

  9. The plans that Mr. AOW and I have for today: attending an open house at our local VFW. Two WW2 veterans will be there, and we always look forward to getting together with them in particular.

    Last night, I had a bit of a treat watching fireworks. A neighbor decided to send up some commercial "blooms," and I could watch them from my bedroom window while lying in bed. The show ended a bit early; I suppose that the police arrived.

  11. Thanks for sharing the article AOW. As was mentioned, the author does not care much for Obama, neither do I. Check out the book at the website also "The Obama Timeline" and other articles.

  12. I'm surprised that only 6% of us do not know the reason behind Independence Day.

    Hope you and Mr. AOW are having a fine Independence Day! I'm hoping to find some beautiful fireworks tonight.

    I like watching movies with John Wayne in them. He really did capture the American spirit magnificently.
