Forth of July we celebrate our revolution – no one else’s

At the fourth of July we celebrate a revolution. It’s the only time of the year we celebrate revolution and only our own. Some of our forefathers were revolutionaries against the old system, such as Thomas Jefferson.

Some revolutionaries came later in history, such as Mao Zedong (毛泽东). We didn’t like it so well we a large country became independent And held a revolution against capitalism.

When Che Guevara tried a revolution in “our own backyard” we killed him.

Now we celebrate a revolution that has long passed, for a country that’s economic and political system has long lost its relevance.
