Today, it does not matter if you are Republican or Democrat; black, white, yellow, or brown; male or female; Christian or other – Today, it matters that You are a Patriot.
236 years ago, the greatest document written by man in the history of the known world was signed by brave men who were forging a better life; Independence from the British Crown, the end to tyranny set out by King George III, and a Legislature by the People and for the People.
Our Independence as a nation has survived for 236 years. Our liberty has come at great cost. Freedom is not free. Many men and women have given their lives for the cause of Freedom. Today, it matters that You are a Patriot because it is our duty to honor, protect, and steward the Liberty that has been afforded to us.
We must know and understand the reasons that our Independence was established. We must know and understand the protections that are found in our Constitution and afforded For the People against the tyranny of government. We must be vigilant and aware of what makes us Americans.
It is a responsibility that we must take seriously and with great privilege.
