IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
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.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

On this glorious day, let us celebrate the fact, that despite President Barack Obama’s best efforts, America is still the greatest nation the world has ever known!
On this glorious day, let us remember all of the sacrifices of those who bravely declared Independence from King George and the tyrannical British government.
On this glorious day, let us remember those rag tag farmers who fought against the greatest, best trained, best equipped army in the world, and were victorious!
On this glorious day, let us honor those brave men and women in our armed forces who have fought and sacrificed to make sure America and her people will always remain free.
On this glorious day, let us contemplate the great struggle ahead, as we face tyranny and oppression from the very people we’ve untrusted our Liberty and Freedom to.
On this glorious day, let us pledge, as our Founding Fathers did 238 years ago today, to stand up to a tyrannical government that not only seeks to destroy our Liberty and Freedom, but the very United States herself.
On this glorious day, let us pledge to defeat this Tyrant Obama, and defeat those who would seek to take up his cause.
On this glorious day, let us pledge to never allow another such tyrannical figure to hold an office of power again.
The United States of America IS the greatest nation the world has ever known, and we Americans are blessed as the greatest people the world has seen.
The Declaration of Independence is still one of the most enduring, and radical, documents the world has ever known. The notion of government of the People, by the People, and for the People is still the most radical idea in the world. The concept of individual sovereignty was unheard of before America. It is all uniquely American.
Despite all we endure, we are still the freest people on planet earth! That Freedom is a blessing from God. And it’s a Freedom we are obligated to maintain at ALL COST.
Today is a day of joy and happiness.
Today is a day to celebrate with gusto!
Today is a day to eat, drink, and be merry. To soak up the sun and enjoy all that life as an American holds!
Tomorrow we renew our fight against all those who would try and take all of this away.
Tomorrow is the day we renew our fight against those who seek to remake America rather than restore her.
Tomorrow is the day we let those enemies of Liberty and Freedom know, that in the struggle of Good vs Evil, we WILL prevail, as Good always does.
From the great Ray Charles America the Beautiful, performed September 18, 1972 on the Dick Cavett Show:
May God always shine his grace on thee.
May God always bless America and may God always bless the American people.
