John Adams had written to his wife Abigail:
Free Seed Offers!!!!!!The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.
Although I grabbed this exert from Wikipedia, this small statement John Adams wrote to his wife spoke volumes to me. So many people today argue that America was not founded on Christian and Biblical principles, yet Adams makes the distinction perfectly clear to his wife after the Declaration of Independence was signed. If you carefully read our founding documents, you will see a lot of correlation and wording that comes from the Bible.
Adams later stated how the holiday was to be celebrated and low and behold, he said to celebrate also with guns, the right so many politicians and Americans want taken away. I have heard so many times through the years, "it's amazing how we've never had a major war in this country in modern history," with no realization that it's because we have the right to bear arms. The enemy would be fighting our military and every gun owner in America.
As you saw, his letter says July 2nd, but most importantly whether it is the 2nd or the 4th, the meaning is still the same.
There is a saying from unions and union members in America, and that is, the Union is only as strong as its members, but we Americans need to remember that our country is as strong as it's people.
Here is a link to a small gift to you all to keep you independent. I received this in an email today. It is a pack of free heirloom seeds with 20 videos on preserving/self sufficiency. I have not had a chance to check the videos out due to time constraints, but will in the next week.
