Independence Day 2015

by

Editing The Declaration of Independence1776

Today is the Commemoration of the Birth of a New Nation, conceived in Liberty, on the self-evident proposition that All Men are created equal. No other nation in history accomplished what these 13 Colonies did, and no other nation in history achieved what the United States of America accomplished in such a relatively short time span. God Bless America.

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.

READ IT.

Better yet, read it while listening to this:

Stars and Stripes Forever

Note that the link to the recording dated August 1903 contains a politically correct disclaimer:

WARNING: These historical recordings may contain offensive or inappropriate language.

That warning, attached to a recording of a classic John Philip Sousa composition from the early 1900s, was intended as a caution to those who might be offended by the *ahem* lyrics. Pure idiocy.

Have a great Independence Day, and Remember Always.
