H. became a nation associated with 13 states, Patrick Holly rose to proclaim that will, “ British oppression provides effaced the boundaries of the several colonies; the variations between Virginians, Pennsylvanians, New Yorkers, and New Englanders are no more.

In an 1815 letter to Thomas Jefferson, after both men had offered as president, John Adams wrote:
“ As to the history of the Revolution, my Ideas may be odd, perhaps Singular. What do We mean by the Revolution? The particular War? That was no part of the Revolution. It was only an Effect and Consequence of it. The Revolution was in the Minds of the People, and this had been effected, from 1760 in order to 1775, in the course of fifteen Many years before a drop of blood was drawn from Lexington. ”

The particular Biden regime that presently rules us has allowed 3 million migrants to invade our country in two years. These illegals continue to crack our laws and cross our border at a rate associated with 250, 000 a month.
Among them are terrorists, robbers, rapists, murderers, cartelists and child molesters. The particular Biden regime has abdicated its duty to halt the invasion that is changing the particular ethnic, racial, religious, interpersonal and political character plus composition of our American family without the consent of the United states people, into whose nationwide home these intruders are usually breaking with impunity.
President Joe Biden is assuring that the upcoming of the nation will be based on millions of people who have in common just that they broke our laws to get into our country. Vice President Kamala Harris smugly dismisses demands to address the crisis by saying Many southern border is “ secure. ”

The custodians of “ our democracy” are failing in the most fundamental of duties associated with any political system — to protect and defend the individuals. No failed regime may justify its permanence simply by claiming some inherent brilliance.
