In 1776, a miracle happened: For the first time in history, men conceived of a nation dedicated to liberty. That the execution was imperfect and took time to be brought to fruition is irrelevant. All that matters is that something extraordinary happened on July 4, 1776 and that 243 years later Americans, as well as the entire free world, still enjoy the benefits of that miracle.
Have a happy July 4th — and let me know what you think of Trump’s celebration. I’ll be on the road again, so I’ll only be able to see it in re-runs later today.
