Happy July 4th

America’s Birthday On July 4, 1776, a group of Americans approved a document declaring the United States of America free from English rule.  This document was the Declaration of Independence, and we celebrate today this courageous action. The Declaration of Independence is the nation’s birth certificate.  Thomas Jefferson, the primary author of the Declaration, outlined its purpose: “When forced, therefore, to resort to arms for redress, an appeal to the tribunal of the world was deemed proper for our justification.  This was the object of the Declaration of Independence.  Not to find out new principles, or new arguments, never before […]

Candidates and Local Party Leaders on U.S. Supreme Court Vacancy

When the War for Independence ended in 1783, America was operating its national government under the Articles of Confederation. But that government had many flaws that needed to be corrected, so efforts were begun to address these issues. In March 1785, the Mount Vernon Conference, with delegates from Virginia and Maryland, met at George Washington’s home to address tense issues that existed between the two states.
