I HATE “The 4th of July…”

Posted by Kimball Roundy | Liberty

For those of you who know me personally, you know how this may sound like I’ve gone crazy.

You know how “Politically” active and politically minded I am… For those of you who don’t know me personally you most likely didn’t know that about me at all. I try to keep my Blog and the emails I send out to my lists professional and business related and I rarely venture into the dangerous waters of politics or religion (both things that I am passionate about).

It just doesn’t make sense from a business standpoint to talk politics or religion because inevitably there will be about 50% or more of the people who are following me or on my lists who will disagree with what I have to say and I might therefore alienate them from possible business relationships…

Hopefully that is not the case with this post. I just had to get this off my chest…

It’s just that over the last week or so leading up to Independence Day, I have had these thought brewing in my mind and I haven’t really been able to articulate what was bothering me about “The 4th of July”. Then, in talking to a couple of my partners in a meeting all the pieces started to fall into place… So I figured I Would write this blog post to get it all out.

I’m saying that “I Hate the 4th of July” for 2 related reasons…

First, I HATE how the name “The 4th of July” has replaced the actual NAME of the Holiday – “Independence Day” – in the main stream of thought and conversation in the general public, media, schools etc… I mean think about it for a minute… Do we call “Valentines Day” “February the 14th”? “Christmas” “December the 25th”? How about “Halloween”, would it make sense to call it “October the 31st”?

Of course not. So why has this happened to Independence Day?

I don’t want to sound like a conspiracy theorist wacko but I know there has been a direct attack on the Freedom, Liberty, The Constitution, The Declaration of Independence etc. And I’ve been thinking over the last few days that it is not too far fetched to think that there has been a specific plan (By those who are seeking to overthrow our capitalist, free enterprise, and Constitutional form of Government) to change the name in the minds of the general population to “the 4th of July” as a way to distract people from the true meaning of the holiday that we are celebrating, “Independence Day”.

A day honoring perhaps the most important political and economic day in the history of the world. A day that those who are trying to take away the Freedoms and liberties that we have in our country need to have us forget about so that we don’t put up a fight as they continue to take away our Liberties…

A great way to get your mind off the real meaning is to change the name of the holiday to something meaningless, and then make it about fireworks and BBQs and eventually people will forget what it was really all about…

The other reason that I am writing this is because of what this type of intentional “Dumbing Down” of our culture means when it comes to the ability of the general population to stand up and fight for the rights that are being systematically stripped from us every day. If we as a people don’t understand these rights, how can we protect them?

This video is pretty funny, I don’t know how accurate it is… part of me HOPES that it is actually scripted because it is just sad how little people know about what Independence Day… Enjoy this clip from Jay Leno “Jay Walking” on his “Tonight Show”… Notice how little these people know about Independence day… Notice how many times they (Even Jay) say “The 4th of July” instead of “Independence Day”…



This is the type of stuff that just kills me! We laugh it off and think it’s just all in good fun, but it is a VERY serious matter if people actually know so little about what i consider to be one of the greatest and most important days in world history…

So anyway, hopefully I did not offend you, if I did I’m sorry but some things are true whether you believe them or understand them or not.

Now, for those of you who agree with me, and who are concerned about the direction our country is headed, who understand that it is going to take an organized effort by Principle minded, Liberty, Constitution and Declaration of Independence Loving Patriots to “Heal America” and bring our republic back to how it was originally intended by our Founding Fathers, here is a GREAT resource for you to get Educated about the Constitution from the viewpoint of the Founding Fathers, as well as an opportunity associate with Like-Minded people (Like Me ;-)

(I strongly suggest you take their “Patriot Membership“, for your support (only $17.87 Per Month – The Constitution was Adopted in 1787 ;-) you will get access to well over 40 hours of “The Healing of America” Seminar Recordings, Newsletters, Regular (usually weekly) Live Streaming events, Discounts on Book purchases and live events and MUCH more.)

    Your post is right on the money! We as citizens of this great country MUST be AWARE of the problem that is going on right now in our country.

    I truly believe there will be a group of us that save the constitution as prophesied.

    Thanks Kimball. yep, the video is hilarious. Betsy Ross…

    Funny, but sad video. I was not offended at all at your blog post. In fact it was well said and much needed. Thanks for saying what many Americans think and feel but lack the where with all to say.

    If we do not take this to heart and take a firm stand and action our wonderful freedom and country will soon be gone.

    I am sharing your post with my like minded email friends.

    Thanks again for this and God Bless the United States.

    Yeah Lyn, I’m glad you were not offended :) Unfortunately there are some who do not agree with me, but we will just call them Mis-guided ;-)

    Thanks Tema, I agree. It’s time we all stand up and take back our country.

    Religion is a PROBLEM in the world, and the revisionists who want people to “take back” whatever they think they lost are the biggest part of that problem. Read Jefferson- not what OTHER religious people with their own agendas want you to think he wrote.

    Religion DIVIDES and SCARS the world, it does NOT “heal” anything.

    I could not disagree more Bones… It has been the removal of God from our daily lives, our schools, our government affairs etc. that has been the source of most of our country’s problems… Many religions divide yes, but a belief in Jesus Christ and the True God the Father is the most healing thing that anyone can do.

    Unfortunately, we have allowed capitalism and paganism to infiltrate all aspects of our lives here in the United States. As with the changing of Independence Day to the 4th of July all our holidays have become commercial.

    Christmas has become all about gift giving and tree decorating. Pagan rituals. What about the birth (which truthfully was in September, around harvest time) of Jesus Christ?

    Easter is all about bunnies and eggs. A pagan ritual about spring. What about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ?

    Halloween is in reality the eve of All Saints’ Day. Celebrating it as a holiday is really a pagan thing.

    The holidays that we observe that are not religious are Valentine’s Day, Armistice Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Arbor Day, Columbus Day, Labor Day and New Year’s Eve & Day. Of those, Memorial Day, Labor Day and New Year’s Eve & Day are the only ones which we celebrate for what they are.

    We have allowed capitalism and paganism to take over everything else.

    I agree to a certain extent Dalora, and I have had similar thoughts about the other holidays as well. Where I have to disagree with your comment is that “Capitalism” is not the Problem. It is NOT the Freedom to create value that is the problem. It is not Free Enterprise/Free Market System or Entrepreneurship that is to blame.

    Lack of True religion and focus on God and the Savior, Yes. Freedom, Definitely Not.
