I find it so ironic that today we celebrate the independence declared by our Founding Fathers against King George, only to find ourselves 231years later chafing under the all-but-crowned King George W. Bush. I can't lie; it's taken much of the sense of celebration out from me this year. So I went in search of some of my favorite writers in the blogosphere to see how they perceive Independence Day.Bob Geiger: No Joy This Fourth of July
Ian Welsh: A Birthday Wish
Scarecrow @ FDL: Self-Evident Truths...
Dood Abides @dKos: O Father, Where Art Thou?
Josh Marshall: The Big Picture
Please share what the meaning of "Independence" and "Freedom" mean to you.
