I see so many people posting that today is a great day in American history for guns and military might. It seems appropriate there would be such an outpouring of stupidity and lack of understanding considering the current state of our country.
We are not celebrating military might or armed insurrection. We are celebrating the ideas and bravery that a few dozen men were willing to commit to with pen and paper at peril of execution. That is a bravery that is most rare today. The bravery of ideas and dissent. Let's hope he get a chance to support that kind of valor soon.
