    I know most of us are celebrating today with picnics, hot dogs and fireworks. But on this day of celebration of one of the most significant liberal accomplishments, it is time to reflect on just what this day means

    Our liberal founding fathers shook the world when they declared that "All men are created equal" When you think of it, this was a time when royalty ruled by the merits of their blood alone. It was a time when different classes of people received different treatment from the government. It was a time when those who toiled in the fields received different treatment than those who owned the fields

    In the most liberal concept of the day, our founding fathers stood up and declared .....We have god given rights to be treated the same as anyone else. Imagine declaring that royalty are no better than anyone else? Or that someone working in the fields deserved the same rights and the same vote as someone who owned the land or that some illiterate peasant deserved the same treatment as a royal family member.

    Imagine what this country would be like if our founding fathers had listened to the conservatives of the day and remained loyal to the King or implemented a class system based on wealth?

    Yes, this is a day of celebration of the greatest country in the history of the world. Take the time to be thankful for what this country gives us and find a liberal and give them a smile and a thumbs up for this special day

    Modern Liberals would have blown every British solder in exchange for "Free Health Care"

    Have a Happy 4th.

    If you want to thank someone, Thank A Veteran

    So, in your mind the founders, who were self-reliant and rugged individualists somehow were liberal? Liberalism is the antithesis of self-reliance and rugged individualism.

    So you think our founding fathers would approve of current Democratic policies?

    Of course! That's why they addressed welfare, gay marriage, food stamps, bailouts, universal health care, etc. I mean, our founding documents are replete with such ideas.

    Oh, wait...

    Liberals have done so much for our society. They gave us our nation, womans rights, workers rights, civil rights, environmental protections, gay rights, healthcare, social security....

    They ask for so little in return

    Lets use today to thank liberals for this wonderful country that they not only founded for us......but work tirelessly to make better every day

    The floundering fathers were self reliant rugged individualists?

    If one defines self-reliant and rugged individualists as exploiters of slaves, many of whom were to the manor born, and most of whom were born into the elite class of their colonialists societies, I suppose that one might describe them as such.

    Some of them were extraordinary "self made" men.

    Ben Franklin comes immediately to mind, for example.

    What is it with these modern day liberals who think the rest of us owe 'em something? Did they fight the British? No. All they do is jump on a band wagon and lay claim to every decent idealist who has ever walked the planet..... Is stupid a prerequisite to be a 'liberal'?
