As Americans celebrate their hard-won independence, they must remain vigilant against the creeping erosion of their freedoms. Rebekah Koffler, author of "Putin's Playbook," draws parallels between the current state of the United States and her childhood in Soviet Russia, where the government controlled every aspect of life.

In the wake of Independence Day celebrations, it is imperative to reflect on the true meaning of independence. As an immigrant who grew up in Soviet Russia, I have a unique perspective on this concept. Independence encompasses more than just the separation of a nation from foreign rule; it is the ability to chart one's own path, free from government control and the dictates of others.

Life in the USSR was rigidly regimented, with the Communist Party dictating every aspect of daily existence. From where one lived to what one thought, the state held sway. Dissension or criticism was swiftly met with punishment, instilling a deep sense of obedience and dependence.

In stark contrast, America was a beacon of freedom and independence. Individuals were free to pursue their dreams, speak their minds, and live as they chose. This sense of autonomy was deeply ingrained in the American psyche, and it motivated countless citizens to serve their country with pride and dedication.

However, in recent years, I have witnessed a disturbing erosion of this cherished independence. Increasingly, Big Government, Big Tech, and Big Media have encroached upon our liberties. Like the Soviet state, they seek to dictate our actions, thoughts, and even our food choices.

The silencing of conservative and religious voices, coupled with the amplification of leftist narratives, is a grave threat to free speech. This censorship is not merely an infringement on our First Amendment rights; it undermines the very foundation of a democratic society.

The recent calls for a replacement candidate due to President Biden's cognitive decline are a further erosion of American independence. It is the prerogative of the electorate to choose their leaders, not of a self-appointed elite.

The nomenklatura, including Biden and former President Obama, seem intent on transforming America into a nation where the state exerts excessive control over its citizens. Under the guise of human rights, they are opening our borders to criminals and foreign operatives, further undermining our national security.

As Americans witness the decline of their nation, resembling the autocratic regimes of Russia and China, they must ask themselves: are we willing to surrender our independence? Or will we fight to preserve the freedoms that have made America the envy of the world?

The time to make this choice is now. We cannot afford to wait until it is too late. The preservation of our independence depends on the actions we take today.

Let us draw inspiration from the struggles of those who have lived under oppressive regimes and fought for their freedom. Let us recommit ourselves to the principles of liberty and self-determination that have made America a symbol of hope and a beacon of progress.

Only by remaining vigilant and refusing to yield our independence can we ensure that future generations continue to enjoy the blessings of liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
