56 Men

I hope most of you will take a few moments today to remember the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence. It was a bold, daring move that immediately cast them as traitors to the King of England and put all of them in jeopardy of being hung if they were apprehended by British troops.

Our forefathers were rebels.

We need to be more like them, not less.

They didn't put up with any shit from the British. The Stamp Act started it all....the British said that they had the right to tax every piece of paper and every kind of document that existed. That didn't go over so well....and Revolution wasn't far off.

I think our forefathers would be a little embarrassed if they could see us today.

Many States vote in Congressman and Senators who want to take away our rights to own firearms.

And then you have a huge, aggressive Federal Government that says they have the right to control the entire medical industry....and many voters, for some odd reason, think that this is OK.

Our forefathers would never have dreamed of letting a government tell them what type of light bulb they could use.
