John Adams – ‘While I live, let me have a country, a free country!’


Together “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

John Adams, who was part of the Declaration-of-Independence-drafting committee, argued in favor of approving Lee’s Resolution to sever the colonies’ ties with Britain.

Today’s patriot reminds us of this.

Wishing everyone a wonderful and happy Independence day…….

    That John Adams series is wonderful. I’ve watched the entire mini-series at least 4 times. Excellent. And there is much truth in that man’s sign. America is beautiful. xo

    That sign in the middle SAYS IT ALL. It’s amazing the punches our fabulous system has taken (like 500 Soviet agents active in the Roosevelt-Truman administrations, as they turned the rudder of policy to undermine our republic and shore up the USSR) and is still standing.

    That Adams and Jefferson died on the same day, July 4th, has always felt so amazing and marvelous to me!!
    That sign the fellow’s holding was said by someone famous…was it Reagan? It’s SO TRUE. If WE go, the world will be in desperation. One of the most hideous occurrences this year, in a huge chain of them, as our getting airlifts of formula….it hurt to see that..grateful? Sure. A horrible harbinger? Oh, yes….and a rare one, I hope.

    Happy Fourth (Sorry, INDEPENDENCE DAY, I often got slammed over the years for saying Happy Fourth! by other bloggers as if they don’t get it?! 🙂 Enjoy that burger, Bunkerville………….God bless America!
