239 years ago, the Continental Congress ratified one of the most important documents in all of human history. The Declaration of Independence laid out, in bold, vivid language, the case for the founding of our country. For over two centuries, Americans have been inspired and motivated by this hallowed text, in particular the language of the Preamble, ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.’ Thank you to every citizen throughout our history who has sacrificed and struggled to uphold the ideals of our founding and I wish you a very happy Independence Day. Have a relaxing and safe weekend!

Once again, President Obama has rejected discussion, rejected consensus, and rejected any dialogue with Congress on a vitally important issue. By agreeing to reopen embassies in Havana and Washington DC, the President has unilaterally flouted the desires of decades worth of Congresses and Presidents. President Obama won’t join Congress in recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, but he will go-it-alone in extending full diplomatic relations to the Communist government in Cuba? That irony is stunning, sobering, and shocking. I will continue to support Congressional efforts to isolate the Cuban government and improve the lives of the Cuban people. http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-cuba-reach-agreement-to-establish-formal-diplomatic-relations-1435702347
