4th of July

My Thoughts on the 4th of July

By Attorney Marc J. Victor

It seems to me that the Declaration of Independence is one of the most spectacular moments in human history. A group of mostly libertarian-minded influential men decided to inform the divinely inspired King George III, who was the leader of the then superpower of the world, that they were no longer subject to his jurisdiction. They declared their independence in a most public way knowing that they had slim chances of defending themselves against the King and that hanging for treason would be the certain outcome of an unsuccessful effort. Good thing the French helped! Unlike the mostly spineless or totally foolish politicians of today, the concepts of freedom, self-ownership, and self-determination were foremost in their minds.

How embarrassing it is for most Americans today blindly celebrating the Declaration of Independence while also joyfully supporting a huge police state that far surpasses any crimes engaged in by King George III. It’s hard to imagine what people like Thomas Jefferson, Sam Adams, and Thomas Paine would think of our police state today and the so-called “Americans” who support it.

That neither the Democrats nor the Republicans even advocate for freedom today would certainly depress those who pledged their lives to live in a society where they were free to both define and pursue their happiness. Imagine what the Sons of Liberty, who proudly threw the king’s tea into the harbor over an outrageous 2% tax, would think of the current debate over our massive government-sponsored healthcare system, or our giant welfare state, or our fiat currency or the drug war, or our foreign policy entanglements, or our incredible debt, or that police can stop and hassle anyone anytime for virtually any reason. Shame on us for allowing this to happen! We have not been good guardians of the freedoms fought for by many of our founding fathers.

I celebrate the 4th of July because I take pride in the notion that we libertarians, and only us libertarians, engage in the critically important task of keeping the philosophy of freedom and self-ownership alive and viable. It’s the least we can do as Americans. When you celebrate today, please at least think about what you can do to help promote a free society. It’s the least you can do…. Join the movement!

Peace,

Marc

I hired Attorneys For Freedom in 2020 for a very serious matter involving my significant other. I... spent a couple of hours calling around looking for attorneys and the ONLY attorney willing to talk to me on behalf of my significant other was Andy Marcantel. It was end of day and he took the time, to speak to me and to myself, my significant other and his family, the next day as well.I knew immediately, I wanted to hire Andy for this serious matter. My significant other was facing serious time and we were both terrified. I trusted Andy and his team to get the absolute, best, possible outcome. From the very beginning, Andy was nothing short of truthful, communicative, professional, informative, kind and hilarious.I would email Andy late at night with concerns or questions and he would communicate back immediately just to let me know he was scheduling us a meeting the next day to go over everything. For almost 2 years, Andy and his team worked diligently on this case and about 3 weeks ago, it went to court for the last time and my significant other received the BEST outcome possible. Considering what he was facing, I will never be able to thank Andy properly for his work but what I can do, is let EVERYONE know, if you’re in need of a law firm, I HIGHLY recommend Attorneys For Freedom. You will not be disappointed.There is so much integrity, kindness and care in that office.Attorneys For Freedom holds true to their mission statement and their values.Andy, I cannot thank you enough for everything and the time and effort you took to ensure we understood every single part of the case and the justice system. I’m eternally grateful to you.read more

I had my doubts at the beginning, Andy, is one of the best guys I have known. He answers every... question I ask, he is there from start to finish. He has a client now for the rest of my life, if anything were to happen. I cannot be more happier with the way these guys run their businessread more
