From our candidate for Congressional District 5, Lacy Johnson
I wanted to write you today with some thoughts about what Independence Day means to me personally.
Independence Day represents the freedom to live our lives as we see fit, to speak and think and worship free from an overreaching, autocratic government.
Independence Day represents the opportunity to be rewarded for hard work, to succeed and prosper in our free enterprise system.
Independence Day represents the responsibility that we all have to provide for our families and take control of our own destinies.
I am in awe of the courage of our Founding Fathers. They signed the Declaration of Independence with the full knowledge that if their revolution failed, they would be hanged as traitors. But to them – and to our benefit today – the cause of liberty was important enough to risk their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.
We owe them a debt of gratitude.
