What Independence?! by IAmTheUnison What Independence?! by IAmTheUnison
Like most holidays, I look upon celebrations on this day as a sick ironic joke. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that this country ain't the "Land of the Free" that it used to be. In fact, it's gone from the "Land of the Free and the Brave" to the "Land of the Sheepish, the Lazy, the Ignorant, and the Complacent"!

With the scheming politicians in Washington constantly thinking up new ways to bypass the Constitution and chip away more and more of our rights with corrupt legislation to appease their masters in Corporate America and the Banking Cartel, I see little reason for celebration. Our government has become infested with sociopaths and a majority of dickheads in this country have their heads too far up their asses to even care. There is no independence to celebrate here, for we are all pawns of the corporations and enslaved to the bank. Until the Federal Reserve Bank has been disbanded, the power of the corporations tremendously sheered, and strict term limits imposed on all elected officials to reduce the effects of cronyism the only thing I'll be raising every July 4th is my middle finger! There maybe no independence to celebrate, but I can certainly celebrate the spirit of defiance and civil disobedience!

I rather wonder how much freedom was achieved in the intial Revolution. At first only land-owning white males could vote afterall.

Unfortunately, at the time, most people had evolved past the medieval notions of the Old World, but the first American Revolution was at least a step in the right direction.

Sure, I can agree with the "awesome for its time" sentiment. One can drive himself crazy trying to look at any area of history from a 21st century perspective.

Hard to celebrate when the country is under siege by the government.

That's the number one way to fightback, confuse them by any day other than yesterday being against them. And rejoicing that this nation was once independent even if it isn't anymore.

besides stuff like no fireworks on the Fourth of July and no drinking no bonfires stuff like that only happens in California, for its the only state that won't let them gather in a group a greater than three without a permit. Any other state, the politician that suggests that law will get shot... by the judge.
