On American Freedom

Memorial Day reminds us what it means to be an American, as the nation pauses to pay deep tribute to America’s Fallen who paid the Ultimate Sacrifice to secure freedom, maintain our nation’s way of life, and ensure future generations would know what freedom is.

  • Self-Government
  • First/Second Amendment
  • Abolish Slavery (Civil War)
  • Fight Socialism (World War l)
  • Defeat Nazism (World War ll)
  • Fight Communism (Vietnam/Korea)

If folks don’t understand what freedom is, or what it means to be an American, you can’t much appreciate American freedom.

This Memorial Day weekend, a crash course on American freedom begins with the First Amendment.

“If the First Amendment means anything, it means that a State has no business telling a man, sitting alone in his own house, what books he may read or what films he may watch.

Our whole constitutional heritage rebels at the thought of giving government the power to control men’s minds.”

-Justice Thurgood Marshall, Stanley v. Georgia (1969)

Wegmans gets it.
