If you have some spare time today, I have three recommendations for your appropriate Independence Day reading:
* At Hullabaloo, David Atkins’ brief but startling collection of lefty quotations from the Founding Fathers.
* Religion Dispatches’ “reader” of recent articles on America’s heritage of church-state relations and efforts to misuse it today.
* Kevin Drum’s fun-pack of writings and charts on the recent struggles for and against the right to vote.
