America turns 233 years old today and when you compare that to China, England, and Jerusalem it really is a babe in the woods. It was really not until 1945 that America was considered a super power on the world stage. They had been drawn into World War II as the country was an isolationist state at the time. As the saying goes we have come along way baby. There is a reason there are any where from 12 to 30 million illegal immigrants in this country. This is the greatest place to live on earth. This country was founded on the principal that anything you can dream, if you have the desire and the right, there is nothing that can stand in your way. The proof of that is in this document that we celebrate today which reads “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Today when you are at the BBQ or waiting for the fireworks take a second to remember just how great a place we live. There are at least another 190 countries you can live on this earth. Each of them has their own way to govern the people. When the creators of the declaration concluded they wrote “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.” Happy Fourth of July everybody from the Tea512.
