Our Nation's Independence Day

    

America's Independence Day will be this Friday. Due to my mixed emotions on the day as a result of the Bush administration and spineless Democratic Party, I would like to know what you are thinking this Fourth of July. Perhaps, in the comments section you will add if your thoughts or emotions in regards to the day have changed since Bush claimed the presidency in 2000.

What response best represents your current attitude or thoughts toward the Fourth of July or Independence Day?

The 4th is for fireworks and cookouts with family. Support our Troops. God Bless America.
