Joe Biden’s America doesn’t look much like the country we’ve celebrated on the Fourth of July.
Drug overdoses, division, and despair are at record highs.
Patriotism, self-control, and love for our neighbors are at all-time lows.
National test scores show the only thing our schools succeed in is indoctrinating young people into hating the constitutional freedoms our Founding Fathers established and questioning the bodies God created for them.
Last year, Gallup reported fewer Americans felt “extremely proud” of their country than any time in their entire history—only about one out of three.
It’s not hard to see why.
Just last week, Biden’s Border Patrol literally cut through razor wire to let illegal immigrants from parts unknown flood into the country—at the same time, Americans on fixed incomes watch runaway inflation eat up their benefits and decimate their life savings.
NEW: Video from source in Eagle Pass shows Border Patrol cutting through razor wire placed by the state of TX to allow migrants to enter & be processed after crossing illegally. @TxDPS tells me this is the first time they know of this happening, and that it’s being looked into… pic.twitter.com/jESPbzj9sw

Instead of heroes like Dwight D. Eisenhower, Audie Murphy, or Norman Schwartzkopf, the Biden family hangs out with Dylan Mulvaney and TikTok influencers.
Our country has hit a new low under Joe Biden… and there are still two years to go.
But even in Joe Biden’s world, America is still the greatest country in the world. There are simply too many outstanding features of our country to ever be destroyed by any one president, or any succession of bad presidents (and we’ve had more than our fair share over the last few decades). Here are a few reasons to take pride in the United States this Independence Day:
1. THE CONSTITUTION IS STILL THE LAW OF THE LAND.
The U.S. Constitution is the greatest document ever written by the minds of men. Before drawing it up, our Founding Fathers studied every failed state in history, from the smallest petty tyrant to the greatest despotic empire, and saw what succeeded—and what made them fall. Babylon, Rome, Greece, and the far-flung British kingdom all came under their microscope.
When they set quill pen to paper, they put their wisdom and faith in God to the test.
They began the Declaration of Independence with the fact that our rights are given by God, not government, and can never be taken away.
They created a federal government strong enough to keep the states from warring with each other but weak enough never to oppress them—as long as the Constitution is followed is respected.

Presidents began ignoring it so long ago that no one really remembers. But even today, the Constitution protects us, because it stops our socialist-inspired leaders and their cronies from transforming the country into full-blown tyranny.
Yes, they hate the Constitution, but they still have to abide by some of its precepts—like trial by jury, freedom of religion and freedom of speech. They still have to control, bribe, or threaten Congress to pass bills, have a president willing to sign them, and a Supreme Court ready to sign off on their schemes…and they don’t always have all three.
Even today, the Founding Fathers protect America from oppression.
2. THE SUPREME COURT STILL ENFORCES THE CONSTITUTION (MOST OF THE TIME).
Thanks in part to President Donald Trump, the Supreme Court has a majority that still sides with the Founders most of the time.
Just look at this past week:
The Supreme Court said it’s wrong for Ivy League schools to discriminate against and lock out gifted Asian or white students from the most prestigious colleges—where the rich and powerful forge connections that set them up for life—based on their race.
Then, the High Court stopped Joe Biden from forcing plumbers, electricians, and factory workers from paying for the college loan debt racked up by gender studies majors.
And the justices said the U.S. Post Office can’t force someone to work on Sunday if that violates his religion and went on to say a state government can’t force you to write websites containing messages you don’t really believe… especially not messages you think are sinful.
Thanks to Trump, the Constitution trumps Biden’s despotic plans.
If the Supreme Court had totally abandoned the Constitution, the Democrats wouldn’t spend all their time and energy trying to pack the court.
3. OUR BLESSINGS COME FROM A POWER HIGHER THAN THE CONSTITUTION.
The best news is that even if the socialists succeed in overturning the Constitution, our blessings don’t come from the High Court: They come from a Higher Power. One of the songs that best captures this holiday tells us, “America, God shed His grace on thee!”
America was founded by a series of miraculous winds, gales, and angelic paths that led the Mayflower to Plymouth Rock. We overcome the superior firepower of the Red Coats by grit and determination. We carved a country out of a hostile wilderness, protected from predators of every kind by a Providence seen only by the eye of faith.
And still, God’s hand gives us every blessing, from multiplying our daily bread more than any country on earth, to multiplying our freedoms (still better than anywhere else), to multiplying the number of Americans waking up to what’s happening in “their” own government.
God created America. God sustained America.
God bless America this Independence Day.
