A Modern Declaration

On the 4th of July every year we celebrate our independence once again. While reading our declaration, it brings to question whether or not we still have the liberties, accurate representation, and fair and just laws that were hard fought to attain. It brings to mind that we may need to seek our independence once again. Not to separate ourselves from a tyrannical dictator, but to free ourselves from a government that has long since for-gotten what liberty is. We celebrate, every year, the day we declared that our nation shall be free and independent of an empire that sought to control us without adequate representation and the fight for this freedom would take another seven bloody years to attain after this declaration.
