For the past year, I have been in a funk. Undoubtedly being my own worst enemy, and with time on my hands, I devour the news with disbelief at how bad the United States has descended into tyranny.
This is something I wrote about often at the now, apparently defunct, Backdoor Survival. At the time, I spoke of the erosion of civil rights and the perfect storm for economic and political collapse. My timing was off but as many in the survivalist prepper community have predicted, things are now happening on the public stage that are far worse than we imagined.
All that being said, for Independence Day, I wish to share the following tome with you. Although I have made slight changes, it was originally was shared over a year ago by a member of my community and is a reminder that as far as I am concerned, we live in the greatest country in the world, warts and all.
It is a quick read, but well worth it.
