Once a year, on the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, we here in the good ol’ U. S. of A. take the time to celebrate freedom—no longer as an untested experiment, but as a proven reality inaugurated way back in 1776 by a small group of fearless innovators and patriots.
Thanks to those outside-the-box thinkers, Americans celebrate many freedoms. We celebrate freedom from taxation without representation. We celebrate the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom to peacefully assemble, and the freedom to have a representative government. Most importantly, we celebrate life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as our most basic inalienable rights.
