Independence is a Constant Struggle

J.B. Williams has an excellent piece up over at The Conservative Voice.

George Bush might celebrate Independence Day like most Americans, with a back yard barbeque and fireworks, but he is working diligently to erase the borders that once secured America as a free independent nation.

The United Nations and the European Union see America as only the Daddy Warbucks of some one world global commune they hope to run for the greater good of humanity, namely themselves.

The US Senate is squarely behind the global commune concept and the US House tilts towards independent sovereignty and security, but finds itself largely impotent in its efforts to thwart the federal socialist global agenda working its way across America via leftist news reporting and Hollyweird history hoaxes.
As we enjoy gathering with family and friends, indulging in American classics like hot dogs and hamburgers, and oooooh and aaaaaah over brilliant fireworks displays, let's not forget what it is we're celebrating. Independence. That means not only individual freedoms, but our sovereignty as a nation. And, whatever else you do, please don't take that for granted.

That independence is something we must constantly fight to maintain, and I'm not just talking our brave military fighting in a distant land. I'm talking you and me, right here at home.

Illegal invaders march in our streets demanding their civil rights in a country they have broken into and have no business being in at all. People like Cindy Sheehan, John Murtha, John Kerry, Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton and Harry Reid demand we not only respect the rights of illegals to break and enter, but vote as well. They take aim at our own military daily while feeding anti-American talking points to enemies like Bin Laden. A growing number of Americans are falling prey to an endless stream of anti-American propaganda peddled by their so-called press, at the command of the Democratic Party desperate to regain power before the party tent folds entirely, as it did once before in the early 1800’s.

Our laws have been twisted to protect the guilty at the expense of the innocent, our inalienable right to life, replaced with a right to kill the defenseless unborn, aged or imperfect. Our personal and economic liberty has been replaced with a communal interest in a greater good and our individual right to define and pursue happiness, replaced with a federal right of our government to define and administer universal happiness of their will, not ours.

This is not what the founders had in mind at all… Many still celebrate the date, but not the ideals anymore.
Day by day I watch this country, in whose founding ideals I so deeply believe, become less and less recognizable as the America I know and love. But I'm not willing to just watch the destruction of my country, because being an American citizen comes not only with rights, but also with responsibilities.

It established our right to form a government for the sole purpose of securing these ideas, “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,” and provided that it was these fundamental ideas that must stand the test of time, that governments were at best temporary in that endeavor, “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
It is clear that a good number of our leaders are not working for the good of those who elected them. Those who entrusted them with the power to shape and guide this great nation. Us. We. The American people.

So what are we going to do about it -- and what are we waiting for?
