Valuing our freedoms

Tomorrow is the Fourth of July- Independence Day. A day filled with cookouts, barbecues, picnics, trips to the beach, and fireworks. A day to reflect on and celebrate America's independence.

But things are not too good in today's world. The number of unemployed in the United States continues to increase, while America's enemies continue to plot its destruction.

Meanwhile, our freedoms are being trampled on by the Obama Administration and its supporters. Obama is practically acting like a dictator (and is encouraged by some of his supporters to do so) while his wife acts like she is some sort of queen. Harry Reid attempts to rule the Senate with an iron fist, while continuing his campaign of strong-arming and taking cheap shots. Nancy Pelosi supports Obamacare and open borders, while wanting to do away with the First Amendment. Eric Holder and the Clintons are opposed to the Second Amendment. The IRS and EPA are running wild, Homeland Security wants the country under martial law because they are concerned about "domestic terrorists" (i.e. the Tea Party Movement), and the Federal Reserve needs to be audited.

State and local authorities have also jumped on the bandwagon when it comes to freedom. New York's Governor Andrew Cuomo said there is no place in New York for conservatives, New York City's Mayor Bill de Blasio is perhaps the most liberal mayor the Big Apple has ever seen, and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is the most liberal mayor in the history of the Windy City (while Cook County, Illinois is practically run by the Democratic Party). In addition, there has been an increase in excessive use of force and brutality among police officers.

Thus, when celebrating Independence Day tomorrow, Americans should not only just value and celebrate their freedom, they must remember to fight for their freedom.

This year's mid-terms elections would be a good place to start.
