Dear Readers & Friends,

On this day, 237 years ago, we became a documented nation apart from our English leadership. It was a great day in the history of this nation.

That day was long ago, and our founding principles have become lost in the dust and ether of the past, fallen to the wayside of the road of our history. We have come a long way on some issues, and we have trampled and stifled Liberty on others. 28 Principles of Liberty

We bring you back to the original Principles of Liberty. Some of these are outdated (Namely the spiritual and religious ones) yet many of them are still relevant today and should be enforced by the citizens of this country.

Remember today that this nation goes beyond fireworks and grilled burgers. Today calls you to be a citizen. Today calls you to be a watchdog, and to remember that which we stood upon 237 years ago. 

Do not forget the Principles of Liberty. Keep them close to your heart. Keep this nation’s best interests in that same room, locked within you. We are the protectors of this great country.
