July 4th, 2009

Every year, at this time, I read one book: Patriots by AJ Langguth.

This July 4th, Democrats and their friends in the media show they want to bring back Aristocracy and damn the next Cincinnatus. So, this July 4th, I am angry. Frank Herbert was right.

For now, here is the best part from Patriots, the creation of the Declaration of Independence:

"When members of the [Continental] Congress came to Jefferson's stirring conclusion, a majority thought it should include one last appeal to the power even greater then George III....They did not meddle with Jefferson's last oath, more solemn than anything they might devise:"

'And for support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortune and our sacred honor'

"On July 4, 1776, Independence was declared in language worthy of it."

-- Patriots, AJ Langguth, pg.362

Read for yourself, the Independence from Kings and fiefdoms, the Declaration of Independence.

Happy July 4th!

Cincinnatus died yesterday; George Washington would be annoyed but King George III would be pleased with the Left.
