This 4th of July, the Freedom to Be

Hey all, happy fourth of July!

This day is all about freedom.  People have a lot of different ideas of what freedom is supposed to be.  Take iconic fixture of American politics, Sarah Palin.  She’s got a really sophisticated opinion of what freedom is:

“Americans are not addicted to oil, Americans are addicted to freedom — the freedom to move freely and independently where and when we want.”

Makes me want to go on an interstate road trip in a Hummer.

While that may be the most, er, eye-opening, jaw-dropping comment anybody has ever made about our energy crisis, the truth is that yes, Americans do like to move freely and independently.

And right now, it’s not a freedom everybody has.  So this Fourth of July, it’s time to renew the pledge.  You know, it goes, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men [and women!] are created equal…”

Those historic words and so much more, written on a piece of paper. A piece of paper was all it took to immortalize what is generally regarded as one of the most important documents in human history. A piece of paper, to kick-start history and set thousands of people free.

This country has changed, but some things have stayed the same.

Most people take freedom for granted, but we won’t.  This Fourth of July, we fight to fight.  This Fourth of July, we bring the fight to those who should be fighting for us.

This Fourth of July, no excuses- pass the DREAM Act.
