Happy 243rd Birthday America, But A Warning

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 4, 2019

         WHATEVER YOU THINK ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP’S DECISION TO INSERT HIMSELF INTO THE PREVIOUSLY NON PARTISAN FOURTH OF JULY CELEBRATION, THE WASHINGTON EVENT ISN’T THE ONLY WAY TO OBSERVE AMERICA’S 243RD BIRTHDAY. THERE ARE STATE AND LOCAL OBSERVANCES A CROSS THE NATION AT WHICH YOU CAN PARTICIPATE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO ATTEND, OR WATCH THE WASHINGTON EVENT ON TV.

         THERE IS ALSO AN OPPORTUNITY TO CONSIDER WHAT MAKES AMERICA UNIQUE AND THIS WARNING FROM OUR 30TH PRESIDENT. ON THE 150TH OBSERVANCE OF INDEPENDENCE DAY, CALVIN COLLIDGE SAID ABOUT LIBERTY: “WE CANNOT CONTINUE TO ENJOY THE RESULT IF WE NEGLECT AND ABANDON THE CAUSE.”

         WE ARE RAPIDLY ABANDONING THE CAUSE IN PURSUIT OF OTHER THINGS – FROM IMMIGRATION WITHOUT ASSIMILATION, TO A MORAL DEPRAVITY THAT HAS LEAD TO THE COLLAPSE OF OTHER EMPIRES AND NATIONS.

         WHILE ALL NATIONS ARE A DROP IN THE BUCKET AND LESS THAN NOTHING, SAYS ISAIAH, AMERICANS HAVE SEEN THEMSELVES AS UNIQUE. THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES WE WILL BE PRESERVED FROM THE DESTINY OF OTHER NATIONS. FOR RIGHTOUSNESS EXALTS A NATION, BUT SIN IS A REPROACH TO ANY PEOPLE. HAPPY 4TH. I’M CAL THOMAS.
