The cause of Liberty was improved somewhat by the reaffirmation of Americans gun-rights by the Supreme Court.
Other than that things are dismal. We have more people in our prisons than any other nation on earth. Far too many are there for victimless crimes and offenses like Martha Stewart’s misleading some FBI agent. Gun collectors are still facing prison for some really non-dangerous highly technical violations of obscure gun laws.
I have a serious sense of doom as the forces of the Far Left have hijacked both political parties and given us two really pathetic and unqualified candidates to lead our nation. This as we are dealing with what may be the largest bank failure disaster since the Great Depression and as soaring oil prices along with the falling dollar can only bring civil unrest in our cities.
Instead of having social unrest over worthy issues the turmoi will be over demands for an unlimited nanny. In the past Americans would fight over out-of-control taxation, random searching of Americans at government checkpoints and government’s unwanted involvement in every aspect of our lives. Those days of fighting for liberty and freedom are apparently over.
It may be a good idea to see if some of us can get dual citizenship and a second passport from the few non-Socialist countries left of our parents or grandparents. America may never be the, land of the free and home of the brave again in our lifetime.
Why do Americans bother to celebrate a holiday wrapped around the freedom they have rejected long ago?
