Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July!

May we all learn to live in peace and harmony under the ideals and principles of our Declaration of Independence and Constitution so that the American experiment in morally responsible self-government will endure.

May we resist the tide of statist Marxist utopianism and identity-politics racism that, through the media, agenda-driven federal judges, the humanities and social science departments of schools at all levels, many labor unions, and forces within the various arms of government, threaten the nation with the tyranny of neo-Puritanical self-righteousness fueled by destructive ideas clothed in wishful thinking.

May we educate our children and youth in the philosophical, religious, moral, and civic traditions that remain the best guides to virtuous life in society.

And may we express our gratitude for the voices of patriots who, at their best, contribute to these good ends, including (in alphabetical order) Larry Arnn, Ann Coulter, Carl DeMaio, Alan Dershowitz, Larry Elder, Jerry Fleischhacker, Sean Hannity, Hugh Hewitt, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, David Horowitz, Laura Ingraham, Andrew Klavan, Charles Krauthammer, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, Michelle Malkin, Camille Paglia, Dennis Prager, Jay Seculo, Ben Shapiro, Thomas Sowell, Mark Steyn, Donald Trump, and Milo Yiannopoulos.
