    Lightbulb Independence Day

    As the 4th of July quickly approaches and we as a nation gear up to celebrate Independence Day, lets take a moment to reflect of our Independence as a sovereign nation.

    As a independent nation, we have some of the most widely based freedoms in the world. We have a diversity of ethnic groups vieing for a piece of the "American Pie". We have more religious freedoms than any other country on the planet. We have the freedom to choose our sexual orientations. We have the freedom to speak out against our government.

    Hi frpeter,

    Please accept the fact that I have been drinking, but as the old saying goes: "In vino veritas".

    lets take a moment to reflect of our Independence as a sovereign nation.
    As I have stated before, I am willing to support individual applications to rejoin The Commonwealth.

    We have more religious freedoms than any other country on the planet.
    No, you don't................ OK, what religious freedom do you have in the US that we don't have in the UK? Try mescalinaceous cacti for a start?

    We have the freedom to choose our sexual orientations.
    No you don't, it is the way you were born. What I think that you mean, is that you have the right to follow your personal sexual proclivities?

    We have the freedom to speak out against our government.
    Called a democratic vote? or a .308Win

    We even have the freedom to burn the nation's flag.
    Only if you own it?
