Happy Fourth of July

Friendly greetings to all American friends of non-totalitarian persuasions. Have a great Fourth guys. Totalitarian Americans won't want to celebrate today anyway.

Because for all their current problems and despite the current leadership of their federal government, the United States are still - at heart - the home of the free. Consider this remarkable video, for example. Whether you agree with it or not, ask yourself this; is there any well-organised group in Britain that could put out something of this quality along these lines?

When there is a well-funded organisation called "Britons for limited government", maybe we can start planning our own celebratory barbecues.
