Why do we still celebrate the 4th of July, IS it still being taught why we do?

These people or should I say Typical (not all) Democrat have no regard for what they are doing to this State, the same goes for the other Washington, two peas in a pod, spend until bankruptcy shows up, and hope some one with money comes in and wants to take a chance and buy the Government, WAIT JUST A MINUTE HERE, that has already happens, Politicians don’t run the Government any more, YUPPIES, Environmentalist, Special Interest Groups, Corporate Groups, and Unions, especially the Teachers Unions do, the average person does not have a say any more in what their Government, or Country does any more, it is all run by the GREEDY who want more.
They can not see that it is putting one hell of a strain on the Poor and Seniors, the people who are trying to make a home for them selves, but at the rate they are spending money, this will be a state with no future, they will have chased people and Businesses out, or is this what they want, but as it stands, if they keep increase taxes and their Wages and Benefits, they will be cutting off their own nose, because they can not see past it any way, so why not let them cut it off.
I am retired like a lot of Washington residents who don’t make a lot of money, along with people in the poverty level who can not afford to take the blunt of these wasted increases year after year, eventually all good things must come to and end, and when it does it is what they call KILL GRANDMA, because she gets put out on the street and has no place to go except a Greedy Nursing Home who takes all her money and leaves her nothing to live on, and just thinks that they only took her in for what money she has left, or if she is lucky to OWN a car to live in that won’t be repossessed, Oh that’s right, the police will Impound it by Governments orders, because there are no Homeless People, just lazy Whining good for nothing Squatters looking for a place to call home.
It was these Whining Good for Nothing people who made this Country, if it was not for them, this Country would be under English, French, Irish, German (Hitler), or maybe Spanish rule today and not enjoying the 4th of July, but they came to this country to get away from unjust Taxes, and Governments Dictating control of their Lives, but it was all these people from all around the World that Drew up the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to be free, but the Governments today is doing today why they drew up the Constitutions, to stop Government Tyranny, and to enjoy the freedoms we have today, which are in the process of slowly being taken away.
Governor: ‘Dang shame’ gas tax bill died in Senate

OLYMPIA, Wash. – The gas tax won’t be going up this summer, or next, unless something changes at the Capitol.
Calling it a “dang shame for the state of Washington,” Gov. Jay Inslee said he wants to find a way to bring up the gas tax increase later this year.
He did not rule out calling another special session.
“We’re going to have to do some deep thinking about what the next step forward is,” said Inslee.
Raising the gas tax 10.5 cents over the next year would have paid for freeway improvements and would have helped pay for a new I-5 bridge to Portland.
That project was set to receive $850 million from the federal government.
Inslee said that money may not be available to the state after September 1.
“If the state Senate decided to take a more mature approach and allow a vote,” said Inslee, “It may be possible to keep that money, federally.”
Senator Tim Sheldon, D-Mason County, was one of two Democrats who helped Republicans gain control of the Senate this year.
Sheldon said it was unfair for the Governor to politicize the issue.
According to Sheldon, the bill did not come up for a vote because it did not call for any reforms to what he called an “inefficient” state Department of Transportation.
The $10 billion transportation package passed out of the House last week.
It did not come up for a vote in the Senate before lawmakers adjourned their session Saturday.
