Independence Day

Some two hundred thirty years ago our founding fathers came together and with great thought and much dissagreement forged a constitution the blue print of a nation that became a beacon of freedom, hope and opportunity for generations to come. We are now stuck with an oligarcy and a "president" who regards the constitution, something he swore to uphold as a damn piece of paper. We have called on our representatives to do the correct thing and bring this administration to justice yet our pleas seem to be falling on deaf ears. If they do nothing then they are complicit in their disregard of those that elected them and should be removed from office post haste.
As for celebrating the nations' birth I think I'll pass at least until our freedoms have been restored and the Republic for which it once stood is returned to its' former greatness. The Fourth of July will for me just be another day off with a lot of noise at bed time.
