Happy Independence Day

"He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people."

One thing I do every July 4th is re-read the Declaration of Independence, specifically the long list of complaints against the Crown and Parliament embedded within. The separation announced by the Declaration of Independence was not done lightly; recall that it took over a year of open war with Great Britain before the Declaration was even drafted.

There's a lot of loose talk in this country nowadays about secession and civil war, but until President Trump starts sending mercenaries into California to round up Mexicans, or Maxine Waters stages an armed insurrection against ICE, I'm not worried that any of it will happen. If someone likes or doesn't like the current government, the next election is always around the corner...
