We are about to celebrate the birthday of our country. All over America people are having picnics, parties, and setting off fireworks. All to celebrate the freedoms that we enjoy in this great nation of ours.

Mind you, we should always remember the sacrifices that were made for these liberties. Men and boys died in combat because they had a common dream, FREEDOM! Just like the people of Iraq and all over the Middle East. People dream of freedom.

Much like we are helping the Iraqis now, we had much needed help during the American Revolutionary War in the 1700's. Believe it or not, the French gave us much needed assistance although they're many times General Washington did not appreciate the underhanded intentions of the French.

It should be well known, that the French did not come to our aid because they wanted to be our friends, it was only because the disliked the British more then they did this foundling little nation that was hell bent on being free. The French government had been supplying the Americans secretly through the work of America's minister to France, Benjamin Franklin. Franklin was popular with the French people and with French government officials. He helped gain French sympathy for the American cause.

After the American victory at Saratoga, the French decided to enter the war on the American side. The government recognized American independence. The two nations signed military and political treaties. France and Britain were at war once again. The British immediately sent a message to America's Continental Congress. They offered to change everything so relations would be as they had been in 1773. The Americans rejected the offer. The war would be fought to the end.

In 1779 Spain entered the war against the British. And the next year, the British were also fighting the Dutch to stop their trade with America. The French sent gunpowder, soldiers, officers, and ships to the Americans. However, neither side made much progress in the war for the next two years.

So as you see, we did not win freedom alone. Maybe, just maybe we can honor the memories of those early Revolutionaries who yearned to be free by helping others to live as freely as we do in America.

How have we become so selfish and so ignorant as to forget the men who fought and died for this country in its infancy? I suppose that we can thank our public education system for that. They are too busy trying to indoctrinate our children with Marxist ideals with a defeatist mentality. In short, our children are being made into a bunch of politically correct pussies who strive to be second best.

What would our founding fathers say if they would have known what happening to the great nation that they fought and died for?

If we don't continue to stand firm in Iraq, then the Iraqi people will be doomed to a life of radical Islam and our security in this nation will be further threatend by the whack Islamofacists that want to inflict their perhistoric, uncivilized, and murderous way of life upon those of us who live free.

On November 4th, 1979, radical Islamofacist overtook the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Iran and took the occupants hostage,all because failed former President Jimmy Carter had withdrawn support for the Shah of Iran in 1977 and turned our back on a valuable ally in the Middle East.

In 1979, I was 14 years old. Since then I have learned some things about the man my parents voted for twice. I have learned that Jimmy Carter was one of the worst Presidents the United States ever had. Maybe THE worst. Carter's failure to order us into actual combat with Iran in 1979-1980 over the Hostage incident allowed the rise of radical Islam to begin. The snowball effect of that radical Islam was shown on September 11, 2001. Events in the last 10 years, however, and knowlege of events of the 1980's have shown Jimmy Carter to be a dishonorable man. In fact, if the accounts are corect, Jimmy Carter is a traitor.

What do you think would happen in Iraq if we withdraw our support for those who wish to be free like us here in America? What would have become of our infant nation had the French not helped us? If Spain and the Dutch had withdrawn from trading with us?
I believe history answers those questions.

Happy Birthday America. G-d bless America and her people.
