On this day 233 years ago, our Founding Fathers stood up to the most powerful nation on earth and declared to the world that all men are created with rights that cannot justifiably be taken away by any government.
Putting their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor on the line, they persevered in a hard-fought Revolution to create an experiment in liberty unlike any other in history.
Though they would be outraged by how far the federal government has drifted from their vision, I am confident they would be proud of our growing movement to reclaim the Republic they sacrificed so much to leave us.
Today, we can commemorate their courage, celebrate their achievements, and rededicate ourselves to ensuring the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.
With our own Revolution headed by the "Champion of the Constitution," we are re-declaring to the world our commitment to the ideas that made this nation great. In his latest C4L video, Congressman Ron Paul passes along his best wishes for a happy Fourth of July.
