4th of July: Celebrating Freedom Today... if We Can Keep It

Today marks the day the United States officially became its own nation when Americans adopted the Declaration of Independence.

--------------------------------------------------

Fun fact: 4th of July became a federal holiday in 1870. It became a paid holiday for federal employees in 1941.

--------------------------------------------------

This 4th of July our freedom is once again threatened. Democracy stood at a crossroad once before during the Civil War, but the nation was eventually reunited. That unity has been shattered. The country is divided between adopting an authoritarian government under Trump or retaining our Democracy.

Our freedoms have come at a hefty price in lives scarified to protect the republic from foreign and domestic enemies. Defending Democracy has never been more important than it is now. If we descend into another civil war, I'm not sure this country can bounce back again.

A Big Lie has split the nation asunder where truth is on trial and election denial is a mark of the Devil himself - Trump. 

The cult that has sprung up around him intends to drag non-believers through hell on earth. The death knell for freedom will be rung... if real Americans don't take up the fight against the extremist elements trying to turn the country into a kingdom for Trump.

Do you want to do your part in the fight ahead to save the freedoms you enjoy this 4th of July? 

Vote Democrat in the November midterms.
