:D Are you kidding? It's a day for hot dogs, beer and firecrackers. No one wants to understand the true meaning of this important day in our country's history, otherwise, they might be compelled to act accordingly...

I still believe there's hope (not "Hope & Change"), so yes, please take a moment to understand the reason we celebrate this great day.

Happy Declaration of Independence Day.

These are may favorite indictments within the Declaration:

[QUOTE]
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE]
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE]
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

[QUOTE]
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE]
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE]
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.

Actually, Independence Day is July 2nd. But you're right, it's much more than the "4th of July."
