This weekend, we celebrate the audacity of Americans more than two-hundred years ago, as they stood up to the bully in their lives - the King of England.
Today, we are arguably less free than our nation's founders were under the thumb of the King of England. We have different bullies to deal with but many of the same problems, plus some worse ones.
What would George Washington say about the NSA spying on Americans?
Or civil asset forfeiture?
Or decades of foreign wars?
Or limiting the rights of Americans without due process?
