Two hundred forty-two years ago, on July 4, 1776, during the American Revolution, the Continental Congress of the original 13 colonies declared independence from the British Empire. This new nation, 242 years later, would be the wealthiest and most successful country in the world, and on the brink of another revolution brought about by incivility mostly among those people allowed to come into our country, both legal and illegal.
These people of the Democratic Party are resisting efforts of legitimate law, spewing hatred and inspiring resurrection against a lawfully elected president and his cabinet. Our country's very own laws provide protection for those trying to undermine our sovereignty as a free country. No country can maintain freedom and protection without border security and control of those people crossing into our country.
Sadly, 242 years later, we are now asking do we want to continue our way of life or give it over to those people who never had a vested interest in the first place. Those people now trying to undermine our democracy have never worked a single day, or fought a single battle to win our freedom and protect this nation.
