Each year I wonder if we have celebrated our last Independence Day as a Nation. Over time I have certainly changed the way I and the family celebrate it to say the least. Long gone are the fireworks and store bought food for the BBQ. These days I try and make sure our first real harvest comes by the Fourth so we celebrate with a meal cooked entirely from our own food production on the Small-Hold.
This year it was Lamb chops, Green Beans, Zucchini and Tomatoes in sauce and some Strawberries for desert. No I didn't take a picture I rarely take pics of food.
The point is to us that is Independence of the most important kind.
While I still admire and remain grateful for the country my ancestors, the founders and many others since kept secure and safe and I stand in awe of ideas and inspirations such as the Constitution, Bill of Rights etc. I certainly believe all these fine people who contributed deserve to be remembered and celebrated but the Fourth of July is no longer I time of celebration for me personally.
Long ago I could resonate with the old quote "Ask not what your country can do for you..." Not so anymore. Truth is I never did ask nor kept score for decades but not expecting "something" is much different than living under the yoke of Multi-Cult tyranny and a lifetime of nothing but theft. Yes theft. Theft for the pet projects and social engineering endeavors of the left. Theft of my rights because I was a particular race and gender because the Left wanted my ability to benefit themselves. Theft for a government bloated beyond comprehension to give all their special classes of people benefits.
I have noticed many people do not see the theft as important. I have also noticed most who can ignore it are pretty short on assets themselves. They too will soon feel the effects of their ignorance as the numbers of invaders increase. Gone will be their cushy pensions, social security checks and medical care. Socialism only benefits the few and the herd hasn't been sufficiently culled yet. They will soon require an additional target class besides the one they have focused on for decades.
Once I celebrated Independence Day for the wealth and greatness of our country. Today I celebrate it only for what I have been able to achieve and hold onto despite our government but that is turning into something else as well. Soon I will celebrate it for the fact that I refuse to give another inch of anything. I can only hope that others are feeling as I do.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
