PostSubject: Independence Day   Fri Jul 01, 2016 8:28 am

July 4th - Independence Day. 
In case one forgets the significance of this day, please click on this website: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independence_Day_(United_States)
 
Then there are those, like Nathan Hale who met death with honor. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nathan_Hale
 
There are some Americans who forget the significance of Independence Day and have expressed their sentiment/desire to be under colonial rule.  It is easy to forget about the Revolutionary War also known as the American War of Independence and those who died for the cause. 
 
Let us also remember those who signed the Declaration of Independence and the risks they took: http://www.nhccs.org/destiny.html

The big fellow with the wooden teeth, that George Washington fellow offered five acres to all who would join his army...we joined, many died and the English had more pressing problems with France so they just went home...our five acres? That big fellow with  the wooden teeth he kept all that free land for himself...to the rest of us life went on as normal, just like when we were under the King of England...truth is, nothing ever changes for we poor folks.  Now their calling wooden tooth our president. He's been locking folks up who can't pay the tax to pay for the war we just fought. Hell, we should have fought for the King...If I had any money I'd go back to England...they don't have crazy wild people trying to take your hair back home in good old England...I sure do miss home.

Yeah... a true patriot.  George during the whole war won only one battle...against sleeping Germans...the rest was won by the french, and lack of help of the people here in the new world.
I have often wondered what the world would be like if the "True Patriots, " had stayed true to England? My people would have stayed in Italy...come to think of it Abe, my folks would never have known each other? I would never have been born? Maybe our founding fathers would have sold the small America to Mexico..."Si," good idea. Mexico would have joined Spain and taken over England....there would be no Fish & Chips it would be good old Mexican fast food..."Pass the hot sauce."

Science fiction often runs out the ifs and the untaken paths - it's generally a lesser result - but then it's fiction.
