Yeah with only 2 or 3 exceptions our leadership for the last century has been pretty poor. We should get back to practicing freedom not just talking it.

They listen to propaganda and soon they compromise some of the beliefs and they tend to shift to one party or the other. I agree with alot of that this guy has to say. Keep taxes low but fair, meaning corporations and the wealthy can't skip out on them. Buying more things local and stop shipping jobs overseas where the labor is dirt cheap, just so a few billionaires can make even more billions. He doesn't sound like he's against hard work, we should work hard. But making the playing field fair is what America is all about. A place where if you work hard, you can improve your life. Do we have lazy free loaders, yes we do. Do we have evil minded wealthy icons who want to change the game so it's easier for them to take, yes we do.

You know, we always hear about these sports figures who get arrested all the time. What's funny is that there are so many politicians doing much of these same things. I guess it's not funny but you get my point. We always hear the same thing from every president, going back 20 years. Washington is broke they say, which it is, but it just never gets fixed because Washington IS the new mafia. I think the only solution to fixing our government is more, more, more transparency. We have to get the special interest and money out of government. We have to get campaign reform fixed. There's just too much big money invested and too many lobbyists controlling politicians. Most politicians, their #1 goal, is to stay employed. The want to be re-elected. So they know that because big money helps really control the outcome of many political seats, they have to find donations. They have to make certain promises to keep those donations coming in. There you have it, wealth controlling our politics. Wealth controlling laws. The wealthy controlling all of us. America was supposed to be that one different country that wasn't about that. It had a higher purpose and standard. We've really started our slide back the other way where banks, wealthy corporations and the mega wealthy have too much control.

Nuff said - happy 4th everybody. Be safe. Enjoy

ESPN just had a montage of soldiers coming home and surprising family members. A box of tissue was required. What it's all about. America is just fine, it's the people who have responsibility to make this a better place to live, all of us. Those who allow the crap to happen and those of us who allow them to do it.

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence ?

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.

Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. What kind of men were they?

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated, but they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.

Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Rutledge, and Middleton. At the battle of Yorktown , Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire.

The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt. Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished.

[.sednet1] So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently thank these patriots. It's not much to ask for the price they paid. Remember: freedom is never free!

It's time we get the word out that patriotism is NOT a sin, and the Fourth of July has more to it than beer, picnics, and baseball games. A single moment of understanding can flood a whole life with meaning.

In war, the first causality is truth.....and the 'Patriot' was not a documentary.

Snopes has this as a mix of truth and false.

Four were taken as prisoners of war, none were tortured and none died.....they were exchanged or released. One was taken as a traitor and imprisoned as a common criminal.

The rest...
