Skip to comments.(Vanity): Alright -- What are we gonna do about July 4 this year?

I know that I am not the only American who now thinks that July 4 should be observed as a national day of mourning, rather than celebrated as a day of independence and liberty.
For most Americans, July 4 is nothing more than National Beer, Hot Dogs, Concerts, Parties and Fireworks Day.
The very name of this "holiday" -- INDEPENDENCE DAY -- is made mockery every day by our government's embrace of the "New World Order" and its drive towards ultimate subordination of our national sovereignty to a global government.
As a nation we have virtually renounced our independent republic of laws and individual liberty and now live under a democratic kleptocracy in which our own government has abandoned any pretext of recognizing limitations on its ever growing power.
We have a president who publicly and repeatedly laments that he is not officially a king or an emperor, and blames our obsolete Constitution as the reason why he is not yet completely able to exercise dictatorial power in order to run our society as he and his oligarchical minions see fit.
Our government has stolen and squandered the unimaginable wealth created by generations of sovereign, free citizens of what was formerly the freest, most creative and productive nation on Earth.
It has driven our nation into an unavoidable bankruptcy that no amount of linguistic corruption, accounting tricks and fancy legalese will be able to camouflage much longer.
It has forced our children and grandchildren into a life of state slavery as they will be forced to watch ever more of their earnings be taken and thrown at an unsustainable and increasing debt that ultimately can never be paid off, while they are left to live on whatever pittance the government gives them, or allows them to keep.
We have leaders who brazenly insult our intelligence, flaunt their extravagant lifestyles paid for by money expropriated from our pockets, and DARE to tell us that they have to pass laws regulating virtually every aspect of our lives and economy so that we, their subjects, can find out what's in them.
We have a president who openly claims the right to take away every dollar above some imaginary threshold that he believes citizens should be allowed earn and save.
The magnitude of these and many other disgusting violations of our rights and individual sovereignty are undeniable and indefensible, and cannot help but take us down the tragic road traveled repeatedly by so many nations in the 20th century, and throughout history, to dictatorship, slavery, poverty and ultimately, societal collapse.
So isn't it time that we take over this 4th of July and make the biggest national public demonstration ever against the usurpations and violations committed by our impossibly empowered behemoth of a government whose leaders constantly define themselves as the good guys and lecture us about how we have outgrown our obsolete Constitution because they say we have?
Can we get an AMEN?? Is it possible that all those Americans who understand what is happening, who want to restore our liberty under the Constitution, and especially those public figures who have already established leadership credibility, who already have the resources, the experience and the public personas, can help put together the biggest show of outrage and determination in American history?
Is it not time? We saw how the left turned America on its head in the late 60s. We have been living for decades with the fallout from their demonstrations and marches.
If not now, when? Are we going to make this July 4 a real INDEPENDENCE DAY and send shivers down the spines of those who have usurped the people's powers and led out nation to the brink of desruction?
Or not. Maybe I'll just crack open a beer, have a hot dog, hang out with friends and go watch fireworks.
But really, it has to start somewhere. So tell me -- what are YOU doing this July 4?
I’ll likely have some grilled meat, a few beverages & blow stuff up.
Go to the range and warm up.
I’m celebrating my wedding anniversary, so I have plenty to celebrate, but I don’t recognize “Independence Day” anymore. After Obama slithered to power, it all seems like a mockery.
You can come over our place. We’re gonna listen to some Jay-Z and maybe just sit around watching drones.
That exploding target stuff looks like fun.
We’ll probably rent a place on the beach for a few days, have family together, cook stuff, drink stuff, swim, get sunburned and enjoy the fact that we live in America.
...essentially enjoy the life and everything that God has provided for us
Celebrate my brother’s big 5-0 on the Guadalupe River.
Ah, quatorze juillet is celebrated by the French (Bastille day).
Perhaps we should think of 4 July as “Liberal Day” in which we do to the libs what the French did to their despicable rulers.
Again, I volunteer to man the guillotine. I’ll work overtime. For free. Heck, I’ll donate funds. I’ll take stimulants to stay away. Chop chop.
The level of pomp and pageantry each year seems to be directly correlated with that of government oppression and intrusion into our lives. After eight years of bam, I expect a three-day orgy of parades, readings of fealty to the State, and testimonials of love to our great leader. That said, I might get some beer and stay home.
It is, but it's also a hella-big mess to clean up.
Totally worth it.
Totally worth it.
I had not realized it left a mess. Guess I’ll dig a good backstop/burn pit.
We may have to earn our own independence day...............
Sometimes folks will show up with a few cubic yards worth of aerosol cans.
God love 'em!
I plan to independently break a few minor laws.
"The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property."
Good post. Sorry to see the first comments tend to wisecracks.
Something all could do is to wear black rather than the red, white and blue. If you go to a parade or fireworks, carry a Gadsden flag. If you fly Old Glory (as I do) turn it upside down.
From stuartcr's profile:
I do not adhere to any organized religious belief
I occasionally go to Mass, Mosques, and Temples
I do not believe there is a hell
I think you're a little confused.
