Happy 4th of July: We’re 236 Years Old!

Patriotism is like charity — it begins at homeHenry James

Our great modern Republic.  May those who seek the blessings of its institutions and the protection of its flag remember the obligations they impose.  Ulysses S. Grant

The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men.  Samuel Adams

My God!  How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!  Thomas Jefferson

    Take from them their freedom… all that will remain is God. Only then the others will choose him. Can’t we reach them sooner?… me
