Also I wish our Legislative branch, would follow the principles as set down by our original forefathers.
Stop giving away our Rights, allow our Citizens to again establish there rights to produce their individual manufacturing skills without Corporations having the POWER to usurp the Right of the Individuals, pass Laws to help the Individuals, not be influenced by Money from Corporations.[DO THE RIGHT THING]

Well the Declaration was adopted on July 4, 1776 and America celebrates. Here in Easton Pa the big day is Heritage Day which will be celebrated this year on the 12th.On July 8th 1776 the Declaration was read publicly in Center Square. It was one of the first three public readings of the Declaration. Then as now there was a big celebration..the reading,fife and drum parades etc.. It is great living near history. In fact one of the signers (Mr. Taylor) is buried here. Come visit us sometime.
