Independence Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. I love the food, the fireworks and the parades. And the message of independence has always resonated with me – ever since I was a little kid.
Unfortunately, Fourth of July festivities have been canceled in most cities and counties – by governments. Which is painfully ironic.
In his latest podcast, Peter Schiff reflected on Independence Day. He said he loves the holiday because it’s uniquely American and it celebrates the sacrifices the founding generation made to bring forth a country conceived in liberty. But he said the Fourth of July also makes him a little sad because it reminds him of what we’ve lost.
I’m sad that we no longer have the nation our founders created for us, that we have lost all that it means to be an American.”
