  1. Let Freedom Ring! God Bless America! Land of the Free and Home of the Brave!

    Call to Action for All American Patriots to Wake Up, Defend and Honor the Declaration of Independence, Our Constitution and Bill of Rights! America is the ONLY nation in this world which has these valuable documents for Freedom. Does anyone rush to China, Russia, Cuba, etc. to live?

    American lives have paid the price for Freedom from the beginning of it’s struggles for Freedom and will continue past this generation. It is up to us to keep the Light Shining Brightly!

    Thank you to all the speakers and talented artists who will be presenting and sharing their talents with everyone!

    Happy 4th of July American Patriots!

  2. As a remnant of Vermonter’s who believe in Liberty, I also shall be there to celebrate our 245th anniversary of declaring Independence from the crown of England. As a declaration of Intent, voted on July 2, 1776, published and publicly read on July 8, 1776, and legally made a holiday on July 4, 1870; I celebrate the men and women who sacrificed everything for Liberty for a new United States of America. I have no idea how many Vermont elected officials who still believe and identify with a true heart for Liberty, and Patriotism will celebrate Independence Day. { I hope I am wrong, but I think very few will be seen until the African dance / celebration. I guess we will see if we have any Liberty loving Patriots left in the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of our government in Montpelier. }

  3. To the American Rip Van Winkles: This would be a great idea if somehow freedom still existed. Comrades, that is so over!

  4. My Country ‘Tis of Thee

    Words: Samuel F. Smith, 1832.
    Music: AMERICA, Thesaurus Musicus, 1744

    My country, ’tis of thee,
    Sweet land of liberty,
    Of thee I sing;
    Land where my fathers died,
    Land of the pilgrims’ pride,
    From every mountainside,
    Let freedom ring!

    My native country, thee,
    Land of the noble free,
    Thy name I love;
    I love thy rocks and rills,
    Thy woods and templed hills;
    My heart with rapture thrills,
    Like that above.

    Let music swell the breeze,
    And ring from all the trees,
    Sweet freedom’s song;
    Let mortal tongues awake;
    Let all that breathe partake;
    Let rocks their silence break,
    The sound prolong.

    Our fathers’ God, to Thee,
    Author of liberty,
    To Thee we sing;
    Long may our land be bright
    With freedom’s holy light;
    Protect us by Thy might,
    Great God, our King.
