Happy Independence Day to The United States of AmericaI thought I would provide a few links so that others can learn some of my countries history.I have provided these links as a primer if you will, to assist others in understanding how my country works, what its principals are, and what our basic fundamental rights are.This list is not complete, and is only placed here so that you can learn. If you would like to post your countries history with links, please do so in a different thread. If someone would like to debate my facts, please send me an email or a message.I am proud of my countries history, and I encourage you to browse some of these links.Happy Independence Day, :-)Regards,Joe Ranos**********************LINKS*******************History of Independence Day: (Also known as the 4th of July)http://www.fourth-of-july-celebrations.com/A documentary history of Benjamin Franklin, by J.A.
