Historical fact: Independence Day is a celebration of freedom from government tyranny

Happy July 4th, my fellow Americans. It’s the Independence Day weekend! Independence from what, you might ask? As even the somewhat revisionist history taught in public schools readily admits, July 4th is a celebration of independence from government tyranny under British rule.
And what kind of government tyranny, specifically? Well, the kind that involves warrantless searches of peoples’ homes, where government agents could just waltz right into your private home for no reason and conduct a search without even getting a court-issued warrant. That was a form of government terrorism waged against the people, and when the USA declared its independence from British rule, it adopted a new rule at home that specifically forbade such tyrannical government actions.
That rule is called The Fourth Amendment. It protects citizens from illegal searches and seizures undertaken by a tyrannical lawless government.
Yet, sadly, in just the last decade, the U.S. government has now thrown out the Fourth Amendment and is back to operating exactly like the British tyrants we defeated to earn our independence in the first place! Now in the United States, TSA agents at the airport conduct illegal searches of travelers on a routine basis, with no search warrants issued, no just cause and no legal justification whatsoever. The TSA has become to modern-day America what the British tyrants were to the colonials in the 18th century.
