Happy Independence Day: Enjoy It While We Still Have It; Our Own Brexit 240 Yrs Ago – We Need Another

By Debbie Schlussel



Independence Day Fireworks @ Mount Rushmore. 2008

Happy Independence Day. America is 240 years old today. But how many more years will she have? 240 years ago today, we did our own Brexit. Now, we may need another, including an Islamexit. But first, I want to note about how lucky we all are.

Great National Anthem Video Sung by Jewish Choir, “Kol Ish” . . .

If you’re an American today, you are very lucky as am I. I’m lucky to be here, lucky to be alive, and very lucky to be an American. My maternal grandparents were Holocaust survivors. Their parents and most of their siblings were murdered by the Nazis, so I am alive with G-d’s grace. My paternal grandparents came here at the turn of the century to escape European anti-Semitism. But my paternal grandmother was nearly unique of her 11 or so siblings. Her poor parents sent her here to live with her great-aunt and great-uncle, but only one of her brothers survived the Holocaust. So, again, it’s only because of G-d’s favor that I’m here. I’m lucky my four immigrant grandparents made it to America and had the opportunity to work hard and build a life for my parents, and they for me. Only in America. Today, I celebrate that good fortune.

Voices of Glory sing “G-d Bless America” . . .

But today I also look at how precarious that good fortune is because our country could crumble from creeping developments over the last few decades, but especially the last decade and a half. In a few generations we may lose the country my family gained just a few generations ago.

Like you, I’m proud to be an American. So lucky and so grateful. But I’m also depressed and disturbed by where we are going. I fear it won’t last another 240 years. We no longer have immigrants like my grandparents who were given nothing when they came here but worked hard and sacrificed and adopted American culture as their own. They idolized the “dead old White European men” who founded this country–the ones who are now reviled. Yes, dead old White European men built this country (some of them Jews, who were present at the founding, contributed to America’s advancement, and fought in every war America fought, including the Revolutionary War), not the Muslims that kids are now being taught created America in some way (that never happened).

Christians and Jews created and built America, not Mohammed and La Raza. Oh, and they were usually married and had their kids within that marriage. Men were men, women were women, and the family was nuclear before there was anything actually nuclear. America had religion, not hip-hop. It had assimilation and liberal democracy, not multi-culturalism and endless tolerance for the most intolerant of religions (the culture of hijabs and niqabs and burqas and Jew-hatred and mass murder of Christians).

But, sadly, on this 240th anniversary of America’s independence, none of that is the case anymore. And it’s not for the better.

Today on my Twitter feed (follow me on Twitter), I noticed many tweets retweeted by Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS), the part of Homeland Security that is supposed to vet the backgrounds of immigrants seeking citizenship and barely does the job, spending less than five minutes on average per application. The tweets CIS people were promoting were those lauding swearing-in ceremonies held today for new citizens. I asked myself: of the thousands of new citizens sworn in today, how many were from Muslim countries? How many of them hate Jews and Christians and are here for what they can harvest from America, including jihadist recruits and converts to Islam? How many of them morally support HAMAS and ISIS? If it’s even one, it’s far too many. And we know it’s many more than one.

So while many Americans cheer on Brexit as a sign of hope for the West, while many cheer on Donald Trump for saying what they want to hear on immigration and the economy, we’ve lost our country. Lost it long ago. The new Americans, who’ve been coming here in droves since at least 9/11–they got rewarded for murdering 3,000 of us–and many of them are jihadists in mind and spirit if not in deed.

We’re often lectured about how America is a “land of immigrants,” how the Statue of Liberty has that Emma Lazarus poem welcoming them in. But America was a land of immigrants who were European inventors and great minds who advanced American science and technology and thought. Last week, Alvin Toffler died. Regardless of his dalliance with Marxism, he was an example of one of those minds–a Jewish European immigrant to America. He predicted future trends and opened the American mind for advances. At the end of May, Andrew Grove–the father of the semiconductor revolution as the head of Intel–died. He was an immigrant and Holocaust survivor from Hungary. These were the kinds of immigrants that used to make up America.

Not any more.

They were men like Alexander Hamilton. Yes, the hip-hop musical on Broadway wants you to think Alexander was a “Black” hip-hop artist and rapper. And the musical’s creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, has said he wants you to think of immigrants today as you watch his play about Hamilton. But Alexander Hamilton was a great man who wrote most of the Federalist Papers, founded the New York Post, and was the first Treasury Secretary. He was a Founding Father, a promoter of the Constitution, the founder of the National Bank, and founder of the Federalist Party. Regardless of what you think of his expansion of the federal powers, this was a great man. This was a prized immigrant. Today’s immigrants are not like him. Not even close.

Today, the immigrants are Middle Eastern Muslims who immediately get on public assistance and include ISIS and Al-Qaeda terrorists. Terrorists who killed our military men over there and terrorists in waiting over here. They are believers in sharia and extremism who want America to bend to them, not the other way around. They no longer assimilate. There is no melting in the melting pot, other than them forcing us to melt into them. And there are several-time criminals from Latin America who keep coming back. And, yes, there are hard-working immigrants from the Latino countries, but they take jobs from Americans. So do Indian and Pakistanis who come here under H1-B visas that are meant only for jobs that cannot be filled by Americans (though that’s never how it works).

There are no Andy Groves or Alvin Tofflers. There aren’t inventors or philosophers. There is only a lower-level, unskilled, uneducated group of new citizens who do not care about our culture and who subvert it. A group of people who do not respect our civil liberties and want to take them away. That’s who Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg wants more of in our country. Have you been Zucked yet? America has.

The people we are bringing in are no different than the Muslims, er . . . “foreign youths,” who gang-raped 35 young women aged 12-17 at a Swedish music festival over the weekend. They do it there. They do it here. Just as they do it all over the Muslim Middle East.

And then there are the Americans who are native-born citizens. A growing number of them are Muslim. A bigger group–the dominant group–are Hispanic. Nothing wrong with Hispanics, many of whom are also upset about the immigration problem. But it seems everyone–especially the media–is celebrating that a shrinking number of Americans are White Europeans because the new racism says we are to be pilloried and our end cheered. We must preserve our common heritage and culture, but we aren’t. And America as we know it is disappearing. Not for the better.

And the largest group of native-born Americans are those who are more likely to be able to name every Kardashian and Jenner (and his/her current gender self-identification) and every unreal but “Real” housewife, but cannot name a single founding father and have no idea what today is about. A poll says 60% of Americans have no idea why we are celebrating today, other than to eat hot dogs, watch fireworks, and go to sales.

For most Americans today, their “independence” is from common sense or actual deep thought about anything. They say the IQ for critical thinking is 120. But about 80% of Americans have an IQ below that. If you’re reading this site, congratulations: you’ve got a brain and a higher IQ than four out of every five Americans. Sadly, the other four of the five often vote. They brought us eight years of Bush and told us he was a “conservative” and “tough on terrorism” (he was neither), during which both Muslim immigration and the Muslim population of America at least doubled along with the number of mosques here. And they brought us eight years of Barack Hussein and Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama, during which these problems and many others got even worse and now we have a healthcare system that is truly broken. How the heck is your paying through the nose for Lakeisha in the ghetto’s healthcare while you now struggle to pay for your own, “independence” of any kind? It isn’t. And, now, they will bring us probably eight more years of Clintonista Disease, during which we will lose even more of our country, our freedoms, and our independence.

Another “independence” we sadly have in America today: independence from fathers and any sense of personal and familial responsibility in America. We now have nearly half of American babies being born out of wedlock and growing. America’s welfare system has caused our society to be “independent” of fathers, decent moral and social values, and a stable family life and fully dependent on welfare and entitlements. The more you the taxpayer have to pay for that, the less independent you will be.

And for those who tell us that America is about freedom and that this somehow means opening up the gates to millions of those who hate us and whose cultures hate our culture, I ask them, how “independent” will you be wearing a burqa or paying the jizya and being treated as a second-class citizen because you are not Muslim? That is what will happen. We will keep losing more and more of our independence until ultimately we will have none in just a few generations. All because we were not independent enough to say no and to close our borders and kick those who are unwanted out.

Britain did a Brexit just last week. We did a Brexit 240 years ago. Maybe it’s time for another. Sadly, the very malefactors we need to exit from are here. We need them to exit us. And they won’t.

So on this 240th anniversary of our independence from tyranny, enjoy this false sense of independence while you still can. We’re free today, but our grandchildren and great-grandchildren may not be. And they will certainly be less free than we are today, just as we are less free than our parents were.

Happy 240th America. Let Freedom Ring. While It Still Can.


Even though it’s not Memorial or Veterans Day, we still must remember the reason we are free and independent today: the members of our Armed Forces serving here and around the world, many of whom have given life and limb. Thanks for your service and helping ensure our freedom.

The other reason we’re free: the Second Amendment. Without that, forget about the rest of the freedoms in the Bill of Rights, including and especially the First Amendment.


Remember, below is what today is all about–these men were real men, sadly unequaled by most Americans (if any) today. Great men made America great, not the other way around. Now, we have mediocre and worse men, women, and CaitlynJenners who make America mediocre . . . or worse.

The Declaration of Independence

Adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776

The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.


John Trumbull’s Famous Painting of the Great Men Who Made America Great

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. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. –Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.

He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.

He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.

He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing taxes on us without our consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:

For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:

For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:

For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:

For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.

We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

These men disagreed on many things before they signed this and after. They had many long debates about this–the very first “Brexit”–and many wanted to remain a province of the British and their king. That was the easy way out–to have a government encroaching on their lives that also paid for everything, every bit of bad behavior. But they finally realized that independence was the only way. Signing and declaring independence from Britain was not an easy thing. It was a daunting thing, especially in that time in a relatively new land with many unknowns and a lot of unconquered territory to the West. Yet, they showed the courage, the balls to do so. Do we have anyone with that kind of courage today?

The leadership and bravery of these men, with the help of G-d, are the reasons why our country exists and is still here today, well more than two centuries later, and their absence–the absence of men like them–is why we sit on such a precipice today. Let’s never forget their sacrifices and protect our freedom tirelessly. And let’s try to emulate them a little more in a day and age when “sacrifice” is watching “Game of Thrones” on a DVR instead of when it airs.

There are NO men or women in America’s leadership or elected office today who are anything like these men. None. Not even close.

Happy Birthday, America. I hope, G-d*-willing, better days are ahead for us and not behind us.

We need another Brexit. But this time, it may be too late.

I never consider it too late.

If people asked the suffering Jews during their first few centuries of Egyptian servitude, if it was too late, they probably would have agreed it was hopeless.

In the end G-d raised for them, in the person of Moses, a liberator and law-giver and in the face of the most daunting odds in the history of mankind, they became a free and independent nation.

We don’t have great men and women leading us today. But in our darkest hours, someone always arises to answer the call. Out of evil, ultimately comes good.

We cannot predict the future but we have to have faith. With it, we can do everything. Without it, we can do truly nothing.

America is in a dark place right now but its best days are not behind it, but are yet to come.

Happy July 4th and G-d Bless America!

This article is more depressing than appealing, because we all know Hilary will escape indictment. She will most likely be President. Only G-d can save us now.

Its also interesting to note, that the black muslim dictator of our country did all of the things the Declaration of Independence said that King of U.K. did. Hmmm, we must overthrow his government. Time for a new Revolutionary War to rid of this tyranny.

A.S. on July 4, 2016 at 9:08 pm

There’s another group of native-born ingrates who also helped steer us towards this precipice: the 18-to-29-year-old age group, thanks to the 26th Amendment of 1971. Succeeding generations have been even more indoctrinated by a leftist educational system, news and entertainment media, and pop culture, into hating this country, having contempt for our heritage, and callously disregarding our founding fathers, while conversely being inculcated with political correctness, moral relativism, junk science and mindless multiculturalism. They’re the ones who, in recent years, have been part of the subversive “Occupy Wall Street” and “Black Lives Matter” movements, and even more recently have been part of the rent-a-mobs that started and caused trouble, including acts of violence, at Donald Trump’s rallies. Over the years, this age group helped give us Jimmy Carter (and the cancer of Islam that began spreading with his ushering in the Ayatollah Khomeini in Iran), two terms of Bill Clinton and all his various crimes and misdemeanors, and two terms of Obama – and are now poised to put another Clinton, G-d forbid, into the White House.

And therefore – what? I don’t dispute the list of particulars in this column. But, if I may quote Pirqei Avoth 2:16, it is not up to you to complete the job, but neither are you free to desist from it altogether.

Telling the truth is the indispensable first step, the primary occupation of this website; truth is a scarce commodity these days. But then – what?

The election of Trump would represent a huge increase in our ability to recognize and act on truth. We would be a much better country if we could destroy political correctness, stop Muslim immigration, and enforce our borders and laws.

As you imply, this is only part of the job. You have well described the symptoms of social rot. However, its origin, the left, must be removed from power, whether in politics, bureaucracy, the media, or academia and the educational system.

R. Tarfon said: the day is short, the work is much, the workers are lazy, the reward is great, and the Master of the house is insistent. (Avoth 2:15)

There’s another group that is also part of why we are now on the precipice and on the verge of losing everything (G-d forbid): the 18-to-29-year-old age group, thanks to the 26th Amendment of 1971 (the upcoming 45th anniversary of which is nothing to celebrate – but rather to spit on). Succeeding generations of these callow twerps have been increasingly indoctrinated by a leftist educational system, news and entertainment media, and pop culture into hating America, having contempt for our heritage, callously disregarding the achievements of our founding fathers, and rejecting the principles of capitalism, while conversely being inculcated with leftist-socialist propaganda, rampant political correctness, moral relativism, decadence and hedonism, junk science, no-growth / flat-earth environmental extremism, and mindless, suicidal multiculturalism. They’re the age group that, in recent years, has been part of the subversive and violent “Occupy Wall Street” and “Black Lives Matter” movements, and also of the rent-a-mobs that have been starting and causing trouble – and even resorting to violence – at Donald Trump’s rallies. (And that’s not counting their support for suppressing free speech, their support of “speech codes” and safe zones, their being jackbooted enforcers of political correctness on college campuses, and support for the likes of La Raza, HAMAS and ISIS.) Past generations of those 18 and somewhat older helped vote in Jimmy Carter (and are thus culpable for the cancer-like spread of Islam and its accompanying jihad terrorism that resulted in good part from Carter’s ushering in the Ayatollah Khomeini), give us two terms of Bill Clinton and all his crimes and misdemeanors, two terms of Obama and his destruction of the moral and social fabric of America – and are now poised to usher in another Clinton, the pantsuit-wearing “Cankles.” In the last two Presidential elections, this age bloc decidedly voted for American decline; moral decay; cultural rot; perpetual class and race warfare; gratuitous and destructive social engineering on all levels; a weaker, more impotent military – and one whose fighting force is more depraved and morally compromised in every which way; the flooding of more “immigrants” whose mentality has more in common with, say, Omar Mateen; and an overall destruction of the social fabric; as well as not caring one bit about our national security, our national best interests, our future, or our very survival.

Oh, and about Brexit, one reason why the vote to leave (52% vs. 48%) was so close, was the same callow age group which is just as indoctrinated into One World globalism as our “kids” are: 75% of 18-24 year olds supported remaining chained to the faceless bureaucrats of Brussels. If those twerps had lived in the colonies at the time of the Revolution (and the drafting and signing of the Declaration of Independence), no doubt they would have sided with King George.

Eloquent & excellent article, Debbie! I agree with every word – and yes it is depressing. When do you think it was that we lost our country? Was it when Kennedy was assassinated or later? I so much enjoyed your music choices! Great post.

Nancy Brenner on July 5, 2016 at 1:50 am

I believe things started going downhill at the end of the Victorian era, with the influence of the Progressive Movement. There were brief pauses in the 20s, the early years of World War II, and the early and mid 50s.

Other than that, downhill all the way. It is becoming more noticeable today because the negative trends started in the late 19th Century are now accelerating.

As negative influences become stronger over the years, they usher in more and more negative influences, and with restraint weakened, the decline of Western society is growing in exponential terms.

Little Al on July 5, 2016 at 6:50 am

Long Live America! You left us, you grew up, you became a Great Nation. So did we, actually. Lately we have both been in decline, along with the rest of the West. But let’s hope that Churchill’s vision of an alliance of ‘The English-Speaking Peoples’ can still be re-kindled. It will be best for you, best for us, and best for the world.

Christopher Hart on July 5, 2016 at 8:00 am

I am glad that I just turned 57, and have perhaps only 30 more years left, to witness the unfolding of the final chapter of this once-great country. We are no longer a federal, democratic republic, but then again, we have not been, for at least 75 or 80 years, or thereabouts. As for when the fatal decline began, you can mark that on your calendar as having been in 1988. As for whether a real, literal Revolution is called for, my only comment at this time, is that the only SAFE Communist, is a DEAD Communist. Sadly, we could have finished the job in the 50’s, and not have had these problems we’re dealing with today, but at the last moment, we didn’t have the balls to do it. Tragic, fatal mistake, as the weeds re-grew, and completely took over and choked the landscape. This, is your inheritance. Enjoy it.

Good people need to have more children to counteract the bad ones or rotten immigrants. Yet America is falling apart when a private school is segregating chikdren in NYC and teaching the white kids they are guilty of bring privileged. Those same shite kids being seoerated in class while minorities are given advantages.

The world is coming apart while self hating Jews curse Weisel after he passes away.

Glen Benjamin on July 5, 2016 at 11:15 am

Written like a true American patriot Debbie and I salute you. You hit the nail on the head and I couldn’t agree more. I for one am proud to be a God fearing, flag waving, US veteran, Conservative Black male who is not ashamed to speak out on what my great country is turning into. In the year of our Lord 2016 I’ve seen some things come down the pike that greatly disturb me. I’ve seen members of the millennial generation treat members of the Greatest Generation with utter contempt and violence. Note to you 18-29 year olds it is NOT cool to beat up on a WWII veteran because you want to show off in front of your equally morally bankrupt friends. Hopefully you will live to be over 65 and let’s see how you do. I’ve seen people who would rather live on welfare than go out and get a job. Now don’t get me wrong we all need help every now and then but I ask where is the work ethic and the drive to succeed? I’ve seen parents grab their kids and hold them tight when they see me coming. It shouldn’t be that way. I’ve seen people who can name every reality TV star on now and name what the last picture that loser Samuel L. Jackson was in. These same people couldn’t name one of our founding fathers or find Iraq on the map. I just read where some nit wit professor from Princeton asked have we “misunderstood” The Declaration of Independence. For a refresher just read Debbie’s post. I didn’t misunderstand a freaking word and maybe this “professor” needs to reread it. This is the same type of doofus that I’ve seen teaching our college aged people junk like this. I’ve seen certain groups of people come here illegally and flaunt our laws and sovereignty. All the while getting the benefits that we as taxpayers pay for. Note to you people despite what the idiots in DC tell you nothing in this life is free. Not freedom, college tuition, WIC, EBT cards, healthcare etc. Someone pays for that and guess who that is my illegal alien friend. Speaking of the idiots in DC. Starting with the top on at the White House. Her you have a man who for all intents and purposes claims to be smart. You wouldn’t know it because his college transcripts have been sealed but that’s another topic for another day. He has (sorry you liberals) sped up the decline of this great nation and not enhanced it. He had numbed his nose at our Constitution with his illegal go around of Congress a co-equal branch government. That means having the same level of importance for you folks out there in Rio Linda CA and Logan County WV. The destruction that this man has perpetrated on this country will be felt for years and when he said that he would “fundamentally change America he meant it. Congress for it’s part seems to have forgotten it’s role that the founding fathers put in place. To be a check and balance to a rouge executive branch. They are so scared of being called the new in vogue word of this year racist that they’ve let Obama get away with murder. Say what you want but 8 years of GWB and his unwillingness to fight back against leftist aggression gave us Obama. That and the very subpar campaign by that fool McCain. I’ve seen student council presidents in high school fight with more vigor and passion that he did back in 08. It was a shame that failed. He pulls out all of the stops in his reelection bids but not that time. Anyway in closing I would love to say that I love this country and was proud to serve in the Navy for 20 years. As a veteran I have a perspective that should be shared by all of us free Americans but sadly it is not. If we are to survive as a nation for the next 240 years we have to get back to the principles that made us great. God bless all of you and God bless the United States of America. Not just on Independence Day but everyday.

lol @ loser Samuel Jackson. Just watched the movie the Cell.

Does anyone here think that now that the terrorists are bombing muslim holy sites and places that this will inspire the regular muslims take up arms against them and fight against them with more passion and commitment?
