Every day should be Patriot’s Day

Do you know why you had an extra day to file your taxes this year? It’s because in 1775 we fought for our freedom, for less taxes, and for independence. Two hundred and thirty two years later, all we have to show for it is one day? Is that what our patriots died for? Back then, a three-cent tax on tea got colonists up in arms. They threatened to tar and feather the tax collectors. They threw 45 tons of British tea into Boston Harbor. They risked everything to fight an underdog war for liberty against the world’s strongest empire. Today, every congressmen, senator, state legislator, and even our own governor, feel they can talk about increasing spending and raising taxes with impunity. Those who complain are ridiculed as selfish, greedy, and uncaring. We risk nothing because we can’t even imagine true liberty anymore...
