Happy 4th of July!

The staff at Game Politics would like to wish our readers a safe, happy and healthy Independence Day. The coverage we provide here is rooted in protecting the freedoms we currently have as gamers and consumers, so we find this particular holiday compelling and important. We also enjoy the occasional steak, burger, hotdog, beer, soda and late night fireworks.

We hope that you will indulge in these things as well and be thankful for the freedoms all of are afforded under the constitution. We just wish more politicians and activists that stand against the things we find important would see things our way, but I suppose that is one of the reasons why celebrating independence and freedom of speech is so great. Game Politics is certainly about voices being heard; it is one of the few websites on the internet that brings together all kinds of people with all kinds of belief systems and political leanings to discuss issues we all think are important – and usually in a civilized fashion.

For that I am personally thankful, as hokey as all of that sounds.

    Your right, Benny.

    The government was really quite fair and the colonists didn’t accomplish much, it was really France doing everything.

    I feel ashamed to have even tried to give recognition to the founding fathers and colonists who died obviously silly deaths for no reason.

    The ‘sacrifice’ made by men and women during those times were pointless. Thanks for taking time out of your day to correct my line of reasoning. It was obviously flawed of me to think that my country was worth respect on its birthday.

    Yeah, that tyrannical regime that oppressed and bullied families with what was probably the most easygoing and responsive government of its age – a government that placed a tax burden on the average American colonist that was far less than most Europeans had to pay.

    Yeah, the colonists really had it rough. As for Americans ‘taking their freedom’, I thought the French gave it to them. If it had been left to the colonists under their incompetent generals, America would still be British.

    Tyrannical regime – give me a freaking break! Britain was a constitutional monarchy in 1776, just as it is today. If Britain was a ‘tyrannical regime’ in 1776, then so was the US a few years later. After all, it’s not as if the US actually gave commoners the right to vote – that came decades later, at about the same time that those British ‘tyrants’ gave the same rights to the common folk in Britain.

    Nevertheless, Happy 4th all. I just wish people would drop all that ‘tyranny’ nonsense.

    Always remember the day that men took a stand against a tyranical regime that oppressed and bullied thier families and friends until they cried out they have had enough! Against incredible odds, with unlikely alliances, and with sheer determination a land of inexperienced and downtrodden common men took their freedom from those that would hinder it. May we never have to do so again.

    Cheers, and happy 4th.
