    See my theory is true that America is trying to brain wash it's schools. Anyway yeah read up, but Britain was at fault as well.

    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Probably because no one signed the papers until then.

    Yay for Wikipedia!

    Anyways,

    Quote Originally Posted by Wikipedia

    The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.

    However, few Americans today remember the Lee Resolution, and July 4, the date of the Declaration of Independence, is celebrated as Independence Day in the United States.
    Get America to recognize July 2nd as a national holiday. Then we'll talk...
