It’s a holiday weekend and should bring respite from the daily onslaught of news, but this year it’s hard to escape that the very concept of Independence Day is under assault.  

Our borders are no longer our own, neither is the money our government borrows to support an economy and residents, who are increasingly dependent on what the “rulers” decide.  Scandals of VA,
NSA, IRS…who knows how long the list will grow…and a President who says, “sue me”.

A new poll shows what Americans think about that.  Another poll details how Americans define patriotism.  Voting, enlisting, flying the flag were top responses.

This July 4th as we show our flags and thrill at fireworks shows and patriotic music in celebration of the American Declaration of Independence, we should remember it was a declaration as a People against what government, royally and tyrannically, imposed.
