America is about to celebrate its two hundred and thirty-ninth birthday. There will be parades and fireworks (both sanctioned and illegal), and more political, platitudinous speeches than would be possible to count, if one wanted to count them, just among people running for President in the 2016 election. It’s a pathetic irony that all of them on the Republican ticket don’t understand the meaning of America as expressed in its Constitution, especially as it is expressed in the First Amendment.
Still, as witness the recent Supreme Court decisions on Obama Care and gay marriage, America can still surprise. There is Hope!
