The United States of America, the greatest country on Earth, celebrates its 240th birthday today. This is a country founded upon the ideals that our rights come from God, political power emanates from the people, limited government is preferable, and freedom should reign.
Occasionally, these rights come under attack from politicians, judges, and activists, but the strength of America lies with those without political power. Don’t like a politician? Vote him/her out. Don’t like a policy? Work to change it. Voters have that power.
America is not a perfect country – that’s truer now more than ever – but it is still the last best hope of earth. A shining beacon of freedom for those seeking a better life.
