What is unique about the 4th of July 1776, is that it was not just a Declaration or Independence, but that it established something rather new in history. 1) #FourthofJuly
#IndependenceDay
No, it did not instantly make a country perfect. It did not create world peace. It did not even solve any problems. 2)
What it did is state a few basic principles that would lead invariably to something better than what they started with. It initiated a process of change and established goals. 3)

'You have spent the last two years failing to do your job, which is to directly represent the popular will of your constituents.' - Anna Timmer at townhall 5/28/19
@justinamash responded: "My job is to uphold the Constitution."
Lets discuss this...
In a @YouTube vid Ms Timmer cites Encyclopedia Britannica 'The House of Reps shares equal responsibility for lawmaking with the U.S. Sen. As conceived by the framers of the Constitution, the House was to represent the popular will, and its members were to be directly elected.'
There is some truth to the above statement. The real question here is who is right and how is that 'job' executed properly and in good faith?

Here is an actual clause of the #USConstitution:

β€œ...no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

US Constitution, Article VI, Clause 3

Suppose that Article VI had a further Clause, Clause 4, that stated, β€œno racial identity shall ever be the basis for a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”
Now, such a clause would prohibit the President from granting or withholding an office based on racial identity, and, in like vein, would prohibit the Senate from withholding consent to a nomination, or granting it, on the basis of racial identity.
