Citizens Young & Old!
For a new day of declaration has been adopted by true blue, white, and red-blooded Americans.
July 2nd is the day of Independence!
Did you know, that the Continental Congress ratified the Declaration of Independence on July 2nd, 1776?
The night of July 2nd the Pennsylvania Evening Post published this statement:
"This day the Continental Congress declared the United Colonies Free and Independent States."
It was July 2, 1776 that John Adams thought would be celebrated by future generations of Americans writing to his wife Abigail Adams on July 3, 1776:
"The Second Day of July 1776 will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. . . . It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires, and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more."
The Continental Congress received copies from the printers on July 4th and thus it is now celebrated as Independence Day.
But I declare, dear citizens, that July 2nd is truly our day of triumphant freedom & liberty casting off the shackles of oppression and domination!
We are now engaged in a moment of time surround by corruption, consumption, and capitalistic gain that have destroyed our sense of Democracy.
Even just yesterday, our so-called freely elected President flaunted his inconceivable amount of domination and power by partially pardoning a senior member of his staff, who was justifiably taken through the established courts of law and convicted of obstructing justice. It is a foulness that goes deep into the heart of our government. This poison that seeps into the life-blood of liberty must be purged! It is now inherent in our system that capitalistic companies run our country for their gain and not for the liberties of human kind. Our country is broken and the fault lies within us all. But despair is not prudent, and we who are so-called Americans must look inside ourselves and hold true to the ideals upon which this country was founded. I say throw off these corrupted-capitalist bonds that strangle our Democracy and plague the world over in unjust wars and tyrannical ways.
As a means of celebration and of unifying those of us who are Americans by our instinctive gifts of self-proclaimed liberty, let us discard these masqueraded Hallmark holidays that no longer hold meaning but just economic purpose of mass consumption and complacency. Let us leave behind the façade of July 4th Independence and declare ourselves individually and as American citizens free and independent of companies who maintain our corrupted government and destroy our damaged ideals of human rights and liberty.
With freedom for one, for all, the world over –
We declare ourselves free on this July 2nd, 2007 and we will rise and revolt against this massively corrupt-capitalist-country which holds our rights prisoner to their dollar.
Who is with me?
July 2nd – the New Day of Declaration of Independence!
Viva Thomas Jefferson!
In liberty and light,
-The Avant-Garde Patriot
