Happy Independence Day!
That’s right. I said it. Independence Day. On this day, 232 years ago, the Continental Congress declared the United Colonies “Free and Independent States”, no longer under British control. (The Declaration of Independence was approved two days later. And it got all the fireworks.)
Today, myths about American Independence and how they relate to the events of today (like the Millionaires Amendment and the Gun Ban). The common thread is that history is told by the powerful, not the truthful.
PLUS why I SUPPORT Obama’s faith-based initiative, even though I played a major role in killing Bush’s faith-based initiative.
