Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of resistance.

 

Woodrow Wilson

Happy birthday America! As you eat your hot dog (or 74 in 10 minutes) and watch the local fireworks show (like the one at Auditorium Shores with Austin Symphony Orchestra), please take a moment to reflect and realize the path to liberty was not and is not an easy one.

To put a little spin on Thomas Jefferson’s statement: …[A]ll men, *women and children, regardless of the color of your complexion, or the religion you practice, or the letter you identity yourself as, or the country you were born in*, are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator, *whomever they believe is their Creator – God or science –* with certain unalienable rights…Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
