Happy Independence Day!

Some quotes to ponder from past presidents as we celebrate the anniversary of our independence from Britain.

"Dependence begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the designs of ambition." ~Jefferson
 

  "I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them." ~Jefferson

"Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have." ~Ford

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."  ~Lincoln

As a child of immigrants to this country, I believe in the virtue of hard work. Give us an opportunity and some freedom... and we will do the rest. Its what our country was founded on, and it will be how we continue to succeed. We don't need handouts, we don't Big Brother intervening in every sector of society. We need to be left alone to do what we do best. Pursue happiness.  God bless America!

  1. Andrea, I am also the child of immigrants. My folks worked hard all of their lives to give us the things they never had growing up - strong belief in God and in ourselves and top-notch education were at the top of the list. May all Americans cherish the ideals of the founding fathers and work together to make America the best country in the world. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
