This is the image of the horse I was referring to.
And I have a correction to make; In the podcast I said that the picture had a Paul Revere looking guy on it riding the horse, but the horse is by itself…
Mark Dice Interviews Folks Who Do Not Know What Independence Day Is, Who the Founding Fathers Were, When It Was Signed or Who Signed It (Dice has done several videos over the years on this topic)
Here are just a few examples of the stories I was referring to.
What I just posted here are only three examples because there is so much ridiculousness it would fill this page but now you know why I say there was nothing worth celebrating as it pertains to freedom, that is, unless your heart is in the wrong place. This isn’t ‘normal.’
What I will celebrate is my salvation in Christ Jesus and if only everyone felt the same way I did they would be making redemption a priority.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
