This Fourth of July, when you watch the fireworks, will you think about the Declaration of Independence? We should, says John Stossel in a new Reason TV video.
I just got done reading President Calvin Coolidge’s speech on the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence on July 5, 1926, in Philadephia. This is a brilliant speech and well worth a few minutes to read.
There aren’t many songs better suited for Independence Day than ‘America the Beautiful’ by Ray Charles. LOVE this live version of the song. Music starts at about 1:30.
Via the Ayn Rand Institute, traditionally, the Fourth of July is a day for fireworks and cookouts. But we should take the time to also appreciate the deeper meaning of Independence Day.
