It's Independance Day

     Set your arguments aside for one day.  You are free to have them thanks to the edgy, far-out thinkers who thought the common man ought to have a voice -- a determining voice -- in the government that set his taxes and boundaries.   ...Eventually, the common woman got in on the deal, too.

     No other country started in violent revolution has ever made the kind of progress the United States has made across so many fields.  That's a fact, no matter what your politics are; I don't think it was luck and do think it is entirely related to our form of government.

I hope your Independence day was safe, and you were all blessed and able to just enjoy the day. And I agree, it is only because of this experiment in a republic form of government that we have held together as long as we have. Let's us hope that it continues for another 243 years.
