Today is the day the infant U.S. declared its independence from Britain, and then fought a long war to achieve its status as a free and independent nation. Now the Brits have done the same with the European Union - without the need for war, though there will be many political battles to come. Still, let's celebrate that all men of freedom may enjoy things like creating (or viewing) this blog which would land peoples of other countries in jail, or worse.
For preserving our right to free speech, and for all the other freedoms we have gained: Women's right to vote, for the civil rights act of the 1960's, for women to have control over their reproductive lives, for the right to serve our country regardless of gender or sexual orientation, the right to marry whomever we choose regardless of race since 1967 and, finally! gender since 2015.
We salute you.
