Per our Declaration of Independence:
…We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…
May the day soon come when the world once again looks to the United States as a model of freedom, rationality, and democracy untouched by corruption.
Here’s wishing a Joyous Independence Day to Americans all over the world.
