Is there a point in celebrating independence day if citizen proof required?

The implications that citizens have to provide proof for citizen ship seem dire so was wondering is the irony of celebrating independence day not seen? as civic participation should it not be seen that demading proof is against democratic ideas?

Update:

Wanting u.s.a. constution as computer program should provide all the proof required ?

same for constutions in other nations and citizenship issues?

Update 2:

So Independance day is not about being free and american? not being beholden to anyone free human beings of all masters?

Update 3:

so americans lost independance to election agency but not british?

webster definition of independance means no one can tell you what to do correct?

    Independence Day is about Independence, not Anarchy.

    Independent: not subject to control by others : self-governing. The US is self governing, Verifying qualifications for government positions does not change the meaning.

    According to your standards, a three year old Chinese child born, raised and living in Peking should be able to claim to be a 35 year old natural born American who has lived in the US for 14 years, and not be questioned.

    you're missing the meaning of Independence Day

    Independence Day, commonly aka the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain
