Honoring the Greatness of America

Jul 4, 2012

Appleton, WI--Representative Reid Ribble (WI-08) released the following statement in honor of Independence Day.

Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom. ~Albert Einstein

“The only way to achieve greatness is having the freedom to do so.  Our Forefathers fought valiantly for democracy so that 236 years later every American still has the right and opportunity to pursue happiness.  It’s for that reason that the Declaration of Independence not only marked a new beginning for our country but also a new chapter in history that would bear the greatest thinkers, innovators, and leaders the world has ever known.

“We truly live in the greatest country in the world. Today, let us remember all those before us who helped pave the way and appreciate what it truly means to be an American.”
