It’s July 4th, the day we celebrate our country’s independence from England. While this country was founded on the concept of individual liberty, the individual’s sovereignty and limited government, things have changed quite a bit, to say the least. But we still have much to be grateful for and we need to find ways to become more independent from petty bureaucrats like Nanny Bloomberg who wants to control your entire life. That’s why I highly recommend a trip to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in beautiful Simi Valley, CA. The Library sits atop a high point over looking the Valley and it feels like it was created for this man’s memorial. The entire tour is touching, moving and a tribute to a real leader, who may have used a teleprompter, but didn’t really need one. It made me long for the days when people were optimistic and believed in something. But, if we all assert our own personal independence those days will return.
