The Fourth of July

Human liberation movements (e.g. US, Irish, Indian, independence movements, Solidarity, Otpor, and the US civil rights movement) have over the long term fared far better those that attempted to force economic equality across classes (French Revolution, Bolshevik Revolution, Chinese Revolution, Cuban Revolution, etc.).

History is clearer about little than the fact that liberating the individual should be the end goal of human political efforts. The Fourth of July celebrates that first courageous effort to put that idea into practice. While we toast ideals of the founders, lets also dance on the graves of all the Bolsheviks who'd have us live in misery in the name of "fairness." May good ideas always win in the end.

Also, don't vote for Hillary.
