Transcript:

241 years ago, democracy became the law of the land in the United States of America. Our founding mothers and fathers took a stand, and against all odds, they prevailed in the fight for our independence.

They are true patriots and heroes. It’s because of their courage that we today have a representative democracy and a country founded on these principles of economic opportunity, fiscal responsibility, limited government, and individual liberty.

As we remember those who paved the way, let’s not forget those who continue the fight today.

This Independence Day, I’m visiting our soldiers overseas to thank them for their selfless sacrifice and unwavering resolve and to assure them that they have the full support of everybody back home. America is still a land of liberty and opportunity because of their service.

Thank you to all those past and present who have made great sacrifices to defend our country. We are a nation indebted to you.

May God bless our women and men in uniform, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.
