The story of the Declaration of Independence is one we must never forget.
It was this American imagination and grit that led to the founding of a nation–the United States of America–unlike any other in human history.
Happy 4th of July!

There’s a phrase, “Truth is stranger than fiction.”
In the case of most Americans, they’re wishing that fiction was the truth.
Today is when we celebrate our founding fathers for their revolutionary vision and incredible blind faith in a new nation with new principles that would redefine the world forever. The United States of America is the greatest country in history, and 240 years ago, this nation declared that its citizens have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
That’s the truth.
Here’s the fiction.
Independence Day: Resurgence has the difficult task of just trying to live up to the classic original. Certainly not an easy task, particularly without Will Smith. The rest of the cast and director did return, which is an encouraging sign. The 1996 B-Movie masterpiece was 2 and 1/2 hours of cinematic gold, featuring one of the best (if not the best) American presidential portrayals in film: President Thomas J. Whitmore. If there’s one dynamic the current presidential election cycle has verified, it’s that anything is possible. With this in mind, why not write-in or at least imagine a fictional movie character as our next president?
President Thomas J. Whitmore exemplifies the character and courage our founders had in mind back in 1776.
Happy Independence Day!
