“INDEPENDENCE FOREVER!” John Adams’s last words of encouragement for a long ago Fourth of July.

Dear Editor,

John Adams pressed the Second Continental Congress toward the break with England. He nominated George Washington to lead the armies that would fight for independence and tapped Jefferson to draft the document that declared it.

“Facts are stubborn things,” honest John Adams wrote. We knew these facts at our origin. Our religious freedom secures our right to state these facts, freely and without fear. As the Library of Congress has noted of our origins:

The first national government of the United States, was convinced that the “public prosperity” of a society depended on the vitality of its religion. Nothing less than a “spirit of universal reformation among all ranks and degrees of our citizens,” Congress declared to the American people, would “make us a holy, that so we may be a happy people.”

Today’s a good day to reflect on these enduring Self-Evident Truths of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We can remember Sam Adams’s prophetic words, too:

“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”

We can declare our own Independence — from those vain and aspiring men whose words mean whatever they want them to mean. And we can emancipate ourselves from the overly and overtly politically correct nostrums of today. Independent we can remain. John Adams’s last words of encouragement for a long ago Fourth of July were: “Independence Forever!”

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
