A Day to Celebrate and Aspire By President Barack Obama

Obama_Barack This weekend, our family
will join millions of others in celebrating America. We will enjoy the
glow of fireworks, the taste of barbeque, and the company of good
friends. As we all celebrate this weekend, let's also remember the
remarkable story that led to this day.


Two hundred and thirty-three years ago, our nation was born when a
courageous group of patriots pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred
honor to the proposition that all of us were created equal.

Our country began as a unique experiment in liberty — a bold, evolving
quest to achieve a more perfect union. And in every generation, another
courageous group of patriots has taken us one step closer to fully
realizing the dream our founders enshrined on that great day.

Today, all Americans have a hard-fought birthright to a freedom which
enables each of us, no matter our views or background, to help set our
nation's course. America's greatness has always depended on her
citizens embracing that freedom — and fulfilling the duty that comes
with it.

As free people, we must each take the challenges and opportunities that
face this nation as our own. As long as some Americans still must
struggle, none of us can be fully content. And as America comes ever
closer to achieving the perfect Union our founders dreamed, that
triumph — that pride — belongs to all of us.

So today is a day to reflect on our independence, and the sacrifice of
our troops standing in harm's way to preserve and protect it. It is a
day to celebrate all that America is. And today is a time to aspire
toward all we can still become.

With very best wishes,

President Barack Obama

  1. Changes we can despair in:Unemployment now up to 10.5%.Imprisoned terrorists freed and rejoining Al-Qaeda.Federal deficit accelerating.Promises of no new taxes on those earning less than $250,000 to be broken and your company health care benefits will not be taxed.And oh by the way where are those leftist activists who carried signs we will work for food when the unemployment rate was 8.5% in the first Bill Clinton campaign and why doesn’t the leftist media ask why we don’t have these phonies and their signs on the street corners today, with unemployment rates at a 40 year high?

  2. Take over by the Gov’t of the banks, the car companies.Pushing for national health care, means no choice. Looking to appoint a pay czar for the country. cap,and trade bill which is going to tax the hell out of US, not to mention the trilions he has saddled us with in debt. Moving to a socialist country.The president wants me to celebrate independence day?

  3. Thanks for saddling my children with $150,000.00 debt each for your socialist programs and giveaways.
    Happy Independence from personal responsibility day!!
