Happy Independence Day 2013!

When the people rise in masses in behalf of the Union and the liberties of their country, truly may it be said, “The gates of hell shall not prevail against them.”

— Abraham Lincoln

Happy Independence Day 2013!
Celebrate your freedom. Celebrate liberty.
4th parade

Remember to take the kids to the parade today.


July 4th parades energize only Republicans, turn kids into Republicans, and help to boost the GOP turnout of adults on Election Day.

Independence Day Poem


The Sun endures its Celestial Path
So we in chorus tarry on
And in the wake of traveled space
Another year has come and gone

What marks this place upon the line
Of times more ancient than we know?
The will to shed the tyrant’s chains
Those who cast their fear below

Who in the seasons chill and burn
Were set to mind and charity
And of one will the die was cast
Our Nation of Fraternity

That with the pen and linen’s might
The blood and treasure guarantee
Upon the Alter of God’s Grace
Became The Nation Of The Free

So yes, we set this day aside
Count Thirteen past Midsummer’s Eve
Remembering the Patriots Brave
Who gave to us, our Liberty
