Can you believe it has been 240 years since our Founding Fathers gave us our National Birth Certificate? We are still the longest on-going Constitutional Republic in the world.

Congress voted to approve the separation from Great Britain on July 2, 1776. John Hancock and Charles Thompson signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th. On July 8th, members of Congress took the document and went to the steps of Independence Hall and read it aloud, announcing it to the city of Philadelphia and rang the city bell. The inscription on the bell was perfect for the occasion. Leviticus 25:10 “Proclaim liberty throughout the land and to all the inhabitants thereof.”

John Adams wrote a letter to his wife Abigail and noted, “This day will be the most memorable epic in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival.”

The founding fathers have passed us a torch and it is our responsibility to not let it go out. I wish everyone a happy and safe 4th of July! I am proud to be an American and a Dealer For The People!
