    Happy Faux Of July

    Aside from the picnics and work holiday, aside from the firework displays by licensed organizers and private citizens (where it's still legal for a citizen to buy their own fireworks), the entire concept of freedom should not be forgotten.

    Marking a day of declaration of independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain the young United States also declared freedom from the concept of oppressive government.

    America is not what we were 238 years ago because American citizens are oppressed by its own government. Since 1776 thousands and thousands of laws, regulations, taxes, mandates, behavior modification rules, court rulings, etc. have made Americans less free today than ever before in the history of America.

    The two major party candidates promise to continue this oppression of government growth and government control. A promise of helping one sector over another, a promise of another handout at the cost of additional government control, a promise of being mother to all, and the reality of domestic domination and the police and judge of the world.

    From the small city government to the monster Fed we have all become serfs once again - peasants - slaves to the dictates of an out-of-control, cutely named, Progressive Movement - progressing America into a state of anything but a free country.
