July 4th in the year of 2016.

It’s just another holiday, which we all take for granted. A time we recognize it as a three-day vacation.

Constitutionfacts.com will enlighten you on this very special event.

United States (U.S.) Declaration of Independence
The significant aspect of the Declaration of Independence is that it changed the American “rebellion” against Great Britain into a “revolution.” From April 19, 1775 until July 2, 1776 the war was being fought so the colonists could regain their rights as Englishmen that had been taken away by the British from 1763-1775. On July 2, 1776 the Second Continental Congress approved the resolution by Richard Henry Lee from Virginia that “these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved…” This was truly a revolutionary statement. John Adams felt that July 2 would be the day that would be “solemnized with Pomp and Parade with shows, games, sports, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this Continent to the other…”
July 4 is the day that has been chosen as our “independence” day. That was the day that the Second Continental Congress approved but did not sign the Declaration of Independence mostly written by Thomas Jefferson. History has had a lot to do with the sanctity of July 4. It was on that day that the news of the Louisiana Purchase arrived in Washington, Henry David Thoreau arrived at Walden Pond and President Abraham Lincoln learned of the Union victories at Vicksburg and Gettysburg. However, the one incredible event that happened to ordain July 4 as something significant were the deaths of both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams on July 4, 1826 only hours apart from each other.
Read this again: “these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved.”
After all these years, we are still Free from the British Crown; but now have to contend with the political monsters we’ve created. Lets take a look at the first legislative assembly at Jamestown, Virginia in 1619.
These are the famous words of Thomas Jefferson, “And say, finally, whether peace is best preserved by giving energy to the government, or information to the people. This last is the most certain, and the most legitimate engine of government. Enable them to see that it is in their interest to preserve peace and order, and they will preserve them.”
Now you know why the media only gives the people what they want them to know and hear. Why violent crowds are hired to disrupt peaceful demonstrators, without cause. The police are ordered to stand down.
After the election on November 8th, this might be the last time we can celebrate our day of complete independence.
This week’s bottom line: Is it too late to take back our government?

The jaws of power are always open to devour, and her arm is always stretched out, if possible, to destroy the freedom of thinking, speaking, and writing.
John Adams
