Imagine if they canceled Independence Day.
What if the federal government declared that the Fourth of July was no longer a holiday? We would be told to report for work, cancel fireworks displays and picnics and go about our business the same as any other day.
There would be outrage. Americans would be angered by the suggestion that we shouldn’t celebrate freedom.
Not recognize Independence Day? Why, that would be un-American.
