Have We Lost Our Way? What July 4th Means to Me!!
On this, the 237th birthday of this great nation, I feel it is time we all reflect upon how this country was founded and how far we have come since this countries birth. The 4th of July isn’t just about fireworks and barbecues, the 4th of July is about the birth of the greatest nation on the face of the planet. Many progressives today would lead you to believe differently as our own president is constantly traveling around the world on apology tours letting the rest of the world know just how horrible our country is. This mentality found in so many progressives today is leading this country down the path to destruction. Many in this country have lost sight of what this country was founded upon and begun to take up the progressive agenda becoming so consumed with arbitrary concepts such as becoming part of the “global community” they have since lost sight of what America stands for.
July 4th, 1776 some of the greatest minds in all of history came together lead by sound morals and a belief in God. They believed that all men are created equal, and that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain UNALIENABLE RIGHTS that among these are LIFE, LIBERTY and THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS! These words have such a significant meaning then and still do today as the founding fathers intended to provide the framework for a nation based on rights provided us from God, not from government.
Fast forward 237 years and we are dealing with a mindset in this country in which progressives have many believing that these rights our forefathers died for, these rights provided to us from God are now provided to us from government. The government has instituted a variety of programs to coddle its citizens into a false sense of security brainwashing them to believe that they can rely on government for every single need from the cradle to the grave.
Aside from social welfare programs and universal healthcare, the government is also attempting to eliminate religion from society. Why would a government do such a thing? The answer is simple, eliminate religion and you leave people with only one thing left to rely on, one thing to place their faith and hope in, government. How are they doing this? They are attempting to instill in the American Citizens a mindset that there is a “separation of Church and state” in the Constitution, when in reality the Constitution simply states that their can be no official religion and that each individual has the right to pursue his or her religion openly and freely.
As this country continues to forge on into the future we are coming to a turning point, one that can truly change the course of history, one that we must fully understand to be sure we make the right decision for future generations. We must strive to instill in our children the true history of this great nation, what drove the founders here and what inspired them to create such a great country, a country of opportunity and freedoms, one that where if you work hard and live a good honest life you can be something. A country where you can raise a family and instill in your children the morals and values of our forefathers and practice your religion openly without the fear of persecution. If we are to survive as a nation we must stay true to our roots!!
