The bumper sticker says, “Freedom isn’t free,” and it’s correct–just not in the way that the driver thinks. July 4, the day we severed consent to the Tyrant, was the day we became independent–not the day Cornwallis surrendered.

Remember: Freedom isn’t free; it requires people–all people–to be willing to risk everything to assert the rights they have by virtue of being human.

Also remember–one of the grievances that led the Founders to sever consent to the Tyrant’s rule:

“He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.”

Don’t forget.
