Fellow United States Citizens,
As many of you are aware, the fourth of July has been known to us as independence day. We sometimes forget that after the declaration of independence was unanimously ratified by thirteen English colonies it took five years of battle and unto the siege of Yorktown to become thirteen independent American states. It took a further seven years to become united under a social contract that was ratified then by majority. Nearly nine decades needed to elapse and hundreds of thousands of lives shed before an unalienable right to liberty expressed by words written in 1776 would be granted to those in racial bondage. One-hundred and eighty-eight years needed to pass from this day two-hundred and forty-four years ago and more blood needed to be spilt before equality would be made law!
Twelve score and four years have transpired since radical men declared they had had enough of a tyrant and the effects of his severity. Since then, all people from abroad have sought these lands to pursue courses paved by dreams whose destinations lead toward intrinsic happiness. Those fortunate to be born within our political boundaries have never known the developing world's oppression. We few natives have not known systemic violence, rampant disease, public racial alienation, nor oligarchy; that is; until now.
Taxation has become unfair and favors the rich while burdening the poor. Scandal has corrupted sacred halls of democratic sovereignty. Bourgeois corporate despotism has become the status quo of executive power while legislators, public servants, are the marionettes of special interests. Public administration is now a commodity to be traded as a stock at market. Police are now the most distrusted, most despised, most ill reputed arm of justice. Our institutions of education and mental health have closed their doors to our children and to ourselves. The courts are politicized and biased by wealth or ethnicity. The prisons grow and grow and grow as an infection aided by privatization. A woman can no longer take her child to a theater, nor a store, nor an event without the fear of a mass shooting. A loaf of bread and a gallon of milk is five times the cost of acquisition over a period of 4 months. Food shortage threaten the most insecure of us with death. And racial tensions between us have caused our own citizens to fragment and form exclusive groups that alienate each other.
Fellow citizens, our country resembles more a pit in hell than a shining city upon a hill. It is no longer a desired destination nor a beacon of hope to the oppressed, hungry, and suffering of the world. Why then celebrate this day!? Why shoot your guns and fireworks merrily when all that was fought for for over two hundred years has been lost? Today, 4th of July in 2020 is not a day to party. It is a day to mourn the dying ideals of a declaration whose causes and purposes have reemerged in our midst. I am sad today, friends, because our American dream is turning into a nightmare.
