INDEPENDENCE DAY: Celebrating Freedom and Liberty

Declaration of Independence and American Flag“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.”

This is precisely what we are witnessing in Tahrir Square in Egypt.
As we celebrate our Independence; dissolving the political bands of a tyrannical King and government 237 years ago, so too are the Egyptian people dissolving the political chains which have connected them to a tyrannical dictator and government.

We are witnessing the birthing pains of democracy, will Egypt eventually look like America, who is to say, they will find their own way, as we did 237 years ago when a small group of men banded together and fought for the unalienable rights of free men and women. As did our founding fathers, the people of Egypt are fighting for their unalienable rights to be a free people, and like all human beings, they are “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

We are living in historic times my fellow American’s as we celebrate this Independence Day, let us remember what has been laid at the feet of Lady Liberty, and the door of Freedom. We have paid a dear price for our Republic; many have paid the ultimate price, and given their very lives so that we may live as free men and women. So let us not forget them, but instead honor the sacrifice which has been laid upon the altar of freedom.
As we watch from some 6828 miles away, the Egyptian people continue their struggle to secure their unalienable rights, to institute a government that will reflect the will and consent of their people. May we remember the words of our founding document, the Declaration of independence, which states:

“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…”

130701-obama-egypt-003Here in America, 237 years after this great Nation was founded, we are facing our own tyrannical dictator and government, even the people in Egypt are shouting from across the pond, “Wake Up America!” Don’t you see what is happening, you like us, are being put in shackles and like sheep being lead to the slaughter.

As a Nation we have lost sight of who we are, and where we came from. We are now paying the ultimate price, we are losing the very freedoms and liberty that our founding fathers fought and died for. The people of Egypt admire our freedoms and fight to secure their own unalienable rights, to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, while we take them for granted, watching silently as they are taken away one by one.

When will we, like the Egyptian people stand up and tell this tyrannical government and dictator that enough is enough. When will we fight for our unalienable rights, the very unalienable rights our Founding Fathers left to us, it was Ronald Reagan who stated:
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

So while we celebrate this 4th of July, let us remember what it is we are indeed celebrating, our Independence from a tyrannical King and government, our unalienable rights, to pursue Life, Liberty and Happiness, which have been endowed by our Creator.

I leave you with my favorite rendition of the Star Spangled Banner as preformed by Madison Rising: Happy Independence Day my fellow American’s!
