Reminder: Today we are celebrating our Independence from England, not our personal independence which no longer exists in this country. From the time we wake up to the time we go back to sleep every aspect of our lives is controlled by a branch of the government. Whether its the food that you eat for breakfast, the type of gas you fill your car up with in the morning, the speed in which you drive to work, your over regulated business, the length of your lunch, what can be said on the radio you listen to etc. the government owns your ass.
In any given day you can be fined, taxed or restricted by city, county, state and federal governments. They do this for "your own good" and because Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Borat and John Roberts all love you so much.
