George Orwell  “If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” ― George Orwell
Benjamin Franklin  “Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.” ― Benjamin Franklin, Silence Dogood, The Busy-Body, and Early Writings

There is a cost to freedom, freedom is not free, it’s an ongoing continual effort to maintain the rights that we have from those who would prefer containment and status quo..  We may not agree with everyone, but we can be assured that everyone has a right to their opinion.  In our politically correct world today, if we looked upon the actions of which the first Americans invoked upon the Kingdom of Great Britain today.  Our Declaration of Independence would be no less, an act of domestic terrorism by today’s political correct community.  At this moment, we celebrate the actions of those domestic terrorist who have given us the rights and freedoms we celebrate this July 4th.  Today, Americans continue to fight against government efforts to increase taxes, curb out of control spending and control the very freedoms endowed upon us.
The following are interesting facts about our forefathers and the Fourth of July.  In a remarkable coincidence, both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the only signers of the Declaration of Independence later to serve as Presidents of the United States, died on the same day: July 4, 1826, which was the 50th anniversary of the Declaration. Although not a signer of the Declaration of Independence, but another Founding Father who became a President, James Monroe, died on July 4, 1831, thus becoming the third President in a row who died on this memorable day. Calvin Coolidge, the 30th President, was born on July 4, 1872, and, so far, is the only President to have been born on Independence Day.
