On the 4th of July – Independence Day

Words for July 4 Courtesy of The Patriot Post

"This was the o bject of the Declaration of Independence. Not to find out new principles, or new arguments, never before thought of, not merely to say things which had never been said before; but to place before mankind the common sense of the su bject, in terms so plain and firm as to command their assent, and to justify ourselves in the independent stand we are compelled to take." --Thomas Jefferson

"All that I have, and all that I am and all that I hope to be in life I am now ready to stake upon it; and I leave off as I began, that live or die, survive or perish, I am for the declaration." --John Adams at the signing of the Declaration of Independence

"In Europe, charters of li berty have been granted by power. America has set the example ... of charters of power granted by li berty. This revolution in the practice of the world, may, with an honest praise, be pronounced the most triumphant epoch of its history, and the most consoling presage of its happiness." --James Madison

"The value of li berty was thus enhanced in our estimation by the difficulty of its attainment, and the worth of characters appreciated by the trial of adversity." --George Washington

"Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? For bid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me li berty or give me death!" --Patrick Henry

"If ye love wealth better than li berty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." --Samuel Adams

"[I]t is a common o bservation here that our cause is the cause of all mankind, and that we are fighting for their li berty in defending our own." --Benjamin Franklin

"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it." --Thomas Paine

"[T]he flames kindled on the 4 of July 1776, have spread over too much of the glo be to be extinguished by the fee ble engines of despotism; on the contrary, they will consume these engines and all who work them." --Thomas Jefferson

Lest we forget, here are the 56 brave and honora ble men to whom we owe our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor:

John Hancock. Button Gwinnett. Lyman Hall. George Walton. William Hooper. Joseph Hewes. John Penn. Edward Rutledge. Thomas Heyward Jr. Thomas Lynch Jr. Arthur Middleton. Samuel Chase. William Paca. Thomas Stone. Charles Carroll of Carrollton. George Wythe. Richard Henry Lee. Thomas Jefferson. Benjamin Harrison. Thomas Nelson, Jr. Francis Lightfoot Lee. Carter Braxton. Ro bert Morris. Benjamin Rush. Benjamin Franklin. John Morton. George Clymer. James Smith. George Taylor. James Wilson. George Ross. Caesar Rodney. George Read. Thomas McKean. William Floyd. Philip Livingston. Francis Lewis. Lewis Morris. Richard Stockton. John Witherspoon. Francis Hopkinson. John Hart. A braham Clark. Josiah Bartlett. William Whipple. Samuel Adams. John Adams. Ro bert Treat Paine. El bridge Gerry. Stephen Hopkins. William Ellery. Roger Sherman. Samual Huntington. William Williams. Oliver Wolcott. Matthew Thornton.

The remarks of an American Patriot standing watch on the front lines in Afghanistan:

"As an officer who faces com bat challenges daily, and who has experienced my share of heartache in defense of our great nation in accordance with my oath, it pains me to see our elected 'leaders' so willfully defy their oaths to support our Constitution. But, war has taught me that we just take today at our best, because we never know what tomorrow will bring.

"The seemingly insurmounta ble battle to salvage what is left of American Li berty simply means God will provide a great movement and great leaders to get the jo b done in His timing. While we may see no solution, it's undou btedly already in the making and I can only pray that He continues to use me in His service, along with all the other great Americans Patriots across our country.

"Battles would not be great and triumphant if they were easy. The more the Left undermines Rule of Law, the more glorious the reconstitution and restoration will be, the mightier the battle, and the mightier the men who will fight it. I simply pray that I continue to grow to fight that war, just as I am fighting this one, and that God preserves me to do so. God provided us with the means and the personal example to triumph over the greatest of evils, He has provided us with the solutions to our own pro blems, we simply must trust it is within His plan.

"Keep fighting the good fight, do not despair on the 4th of July, but cele brate that Providence provided us with the greatest blueprint for governments among men in 1789, with the spirit of 1776. As Alexander Hamilton said, 'The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sun beam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the Hand of Divinity itself, and can never be erased or o bscured by mortal power.' Our rights are only referenced by the Declaration, but endowed by our Creator, and as such, are self-evident. O bama cannot erase them and long after we are dead and gone, the rights of man will be preserved in the essence of God's creation availa ble only through reflection in His gift of reason. Evil ultimately will not prevail -- we are blueprinted with Victory."

“Regarding the fact that you do not seek support from mem bers of our nation's Armed Forces, let me, as a mem ber of the Military, thank you for the support you have given us." --Chief, USN
