Happy 4th of July. I still find it remarkable that, in 1776, a group of colonial upstarts decided to take on what was then a global superpower. As we sit here in 2012, I think our republic is in jeopardy. No longer are the people in control. Money is. I’m a Rootstriker. In addition to having fun today, I ask that everyone visit Rootstriker.org and consider joining. Whether you are a hippy-liberal or die-hard conservative (and especially if you fall in the middle), getting control of our democracy should be important to you.
