As a non-US citizen I must admit that the patriotism displayed in 4th of July celebrations confuses me slightly, but I gather you guys take it extremely seriously. A survey released today shows that only 70% of Americans actually agree with the declaration of independence (13% disagree, 17% undecided). This is actually up from 58% in 2008.
According to the national survey of 1,000 adults, 70 percent of Americans concur with that central tenet of our nation's founding text......What are those people doing for their awkward day off?
The questions to be asked here are:
a) Why would you disagree with the independence of your own country 236 years ago?
b) What could these 30% of Americans wish for instead, to still be ruled by the United Kingdom?
Happy 4th of July celebrations all, be safe with those fireworks and let me know what you think of this survey.
