LP Monday Message: Independence Day

July 4, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Happy Independence Day!

I hope you’re having a nice holiday, and I hope you’ll have a moment today to stop and remember the significance of Independence Day.

Living in Washington, DC gives me the opportunity to see some of our nation’s historical landmarks quite often. This weekend I visited the Arlington National Cemetery which includes the Tomb of the Unknowns. This evening I’m planning to watch the fireworks display at the Washington Monument.

Independence Day is a time to celebrate the tremendous accomplishment of the American Revolution. Many people throughout the nation will celebrate today while watching fireworks, and many Libertarians will be handing out copies of the Declaration of Independence as a public service to help commemorate the holiday.

Libertarian candidate and activist Travis Irvine visited recently and made this light humorous video while handing out copies of the Declaration of Independence at the Washington Monument.

Also, I want to thank the more than 130 people who have contributed so far to our $17.76 challenge.
