There’s something special about wearing a patriotic hat. Wearing hats emblazoned with an American flag shows the world who you are and what you stand for. You are a proud American who will defend your rights with passion and conviction. These rights stretch far back into American History as sacred testaments to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. When you put on the patriotic hat, adjusting it carefully so it fits just right, you know you’re unique.
Tactical Pro Supply knows just how you feel. Our patriotic hats (in fact, all our products) are proudly made in the United States of America. Wearing a patriotic hat from Tactical Pro Supply means something: you are a proud American with certain inalienable rights. But this is not the only reason to wear one of our patriotic hats - a portion of everything we sell, including our patriotic hats, goes to help our veterans. These are the men and women who put the “you” in the U.S.A., and we believe they deserve all the help we can give them. So, what rights do you support when you wear one of our hats? It really does boil down to “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”
Even before the United States became a country, people in the Colonies felt that their rights were being infringed upon. So, when it became intolerable for the Colonists, they decided to declare independence. Most of us know the Declaration of Independence story and how it was written around July 4, 1776.
This is the exact quote that all Americans should understand as the core of their American rights: “We hold these truths to be sacred & undeniable; that all men are created equal & independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent & inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, & liberty, & the pursuit of happiness.” In the context of this quote, “Life” means people have a right to live their life how they want without interference from anyone.
If one extends the “life” explanation a bit further, the “without interference from anyone” could also mean even the government. Indeed, some do think that way. However, liberty in this context means adherence to the rule of law, free from tyranny. The rule of law applies to both people and governments. The authors of the Declaration of Independence understood this rule of law premise. This is why Liberty and Justice are often heard spoken together. When you wear a patriotic hat from Tactical Pro Supply, you believe in Liberty and Justice without tyranny!
In our modern American context, the definition of Happiness is probably the most challenging right to adequately explain. Yes, everyone has a right to be happy. But it goes beyond that. Happiness applies to everyone. People have a right to be happy without fear of persecution. This relates to two words in the same passage. An inalienable right is a right that exists beyond any laws. When you wear a patriotic hat, you acknowledge people have inalienable rights.
When you buy a patriotic hat from Tactical Pro Supply, you donate to American veterans who can never get enough recognition for their courage and bravery. We greatly thank you for helping.
