The Fourth of July is and was a world-changing event. Our Founders declared independence from Great Britain after the Crown and Parliament refused to hear our petitions, restore natural-born rights to the colonists, and occupied colonial towns with demonstrations of force. In addition, the Continental Army fought against the British for over a year before the Declaration of Independence was officially announced. The assertion of sovereignty over our own affairs happened 240 years ago, and now we have had many of the same infringements on our liberties that our ancestors did. Some in fact are even worse.
