Happy 4th of July

Today, on Independence Day, we celebrate principles which this country was founded upon, including individual liberty, separation of church and state, self-government by the people, and a broad-based market economy as opposed to the plutocracy promoted by conservatives.

It is a shame that one group, the Tea Party, has appropriated an image from the American Revolution when they definitely would have been Tories if around at the time, and now, like so many conservatives, oppose this American experiment in self-government.
