It seems only a matter of time before the Accidental President or his sycophants rename Independence Day. Cadet Bone Spurs' obscene infatuation with military hardware and Generals has produced the first July 4th ever to feature tanks and fighter aircraft as part of the celebration of American Independence. Added in for good measure to ensure the proper amount of adulation of the President is a new ticket-admission-only VIP zone around the Lincoln Memorial where another new feature will be the President himself speaking to the assembled masses.
July 4th, Independence Day is intended to be a celebration of the people asserting their inalienable rights in opposition to a Parliament that taxed but did not represent them, did not listen to their concerns and the King who allowed that indifference. In 2019 the people's celebration is hi-jacked by a would-be-King who is indifferent to all but his immediate, selfish needs with occasional pretense at caring about those who worship him like a god.July 4th in Washington is supposed to be special; the people peacefully assemble in celebration of the Declaration of Independence. American Ideals are honored in recognition that the true strength of America is not the size, power, or number of its tanks and aircraft, but the idea that people have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and that those rights are to be protected by a constitution, the rule of law, free speech, free press, free assembly, free petition of the government and free religion. It is those words, incorporated in the FIRST amendment, and the practice of those freedoms that make America great. It is sad that the Accidental President does not understand and cannot comprehend these self-evident truths.
