235 Years Later

Cuccinelli Compass Banner

July 4, 2011 

Dear Friends and Fellow Virginians,

235 Years ago our nation's founders issued a declaration of independence - formally severing the bonds between the thirteen American colonies and Great Britain. 

So strong were our founders' convictions that they pledged their lives, fortunes and scared honor toward the shared goal of forming a nation premised on the ideals of life, liberty and property. 

Independence Day gives us an especially good reason to remember these ideals upon which our nation was founded - and what makes the United States so great today. 

For many in our country - the fight to preserve liberty seems like an antiquated concept.  Over two centuries have passed, and yet the struggle to achieve the same ideals still continues today.  

We are a great nation - but it is not by default that we remain that way.  We must always be fighting for liberty and freedom - so that we remain free from tyranny.

We have troops on the ground fighting in multiple conflicts around the globe.  These brave men and women fight to secure our freedoms and spread democracy around the globe. They keep us from harms way - May God bless all they do for our country.

So, as we celebrate this, our 235th year as an independent and free nation, let us do so keeping in mind all we still must do in defense of liberty. 

Remember the words from a truly inspirational leader in the defense of liberty, President Ronald Reagan:

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. -- Ronald Reagan
