Whatever good system the founding fathers of America established is hardly, if at all, recognizable today. "Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" are no longer American values, except for a twisted version of the last one. Today is not a day of celebration. It ought to be of mourning. Christians are thankful to have true life in Christ, freedom from sin and its eternal consequences because of the Cross, and the possession of irrepressible joy in the Holy Spirit. These are the real reasons for celebration.
