Lets look at some reasons we broke from the King of England.
From the Declaration of Independence:
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
(Defense of Marriage, Immigration?)
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
(Arizona, Immigration, Voter ID?)
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
(Czars, Obamacare, IRS, NSA?)
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation.
(Sharia Law, Law of the Sea, UN Gun Control?)
This Fourth of July, gather your family and read to them the Declaration of Independence.Stop eating long enough to discuss it.
Have a moment to think about it.
Reflect that men died, saw their fortunes whither (went broke), survived battles to Declare that Independence.
Then, enjoy the fireworks!
