determine, whether Americans are to be, freemen, or

Oh...and to the person who commented on the previous post in a negative tone...I don't publish anonymous comments. Be a man and sign your name. Of course you have the freedom to not sign your name, just don't expect me to publish it. Snicker.
Oh...and it's my blog; conservative, snarky, sometimes a wee bit whiny, but it's mine and I can ramble on about anything I want to. That's part of the beauty we celebrate today.

It's all about freedom baby. Enjoy it. Celebrate it. Protect it.
