About Us

Indie R is a network of independent liberty lovers in New York connected by the universal mission to secure America's freedoms and constitutional republic for a new generation.

Founded in 2010, our events and projects creates the base for unaffiliated individuals and political walkaways to build pro-liberty communities, promote civics and take ownership of local politics. 

Indie R's DIY culture and emphasis on “We the People” breaks the mindset that liberty-oriented individuals must identify as 'conservative' or be represented by big parties to be taken seriously.

We believe the word 'American' is the only label that matters. It points simply to anyone who values freedom and is skeptical of authority.

Consequently, we do not subscribe to the political labels and divisions (e.g., Left vs Right, Liberal vs Conservative) invented by modern pundits as they only impair our ability to detect and unify against the cycle of authoritarianism predicted by the Founding Generation. 

Indie R's Speakeasy Assembly is the homecoming for NYC's dissident community of classical liberals and free spirits. Hosted in various midtown Manhattan locations, the assembly is a popular stop for New Yorkers to kickoff their weekend and bar circuit with a cosmopolitan yet patriotic crowd. Our quarterly event is also a destination for non-establishment candidates seeking the support of independents and other resourceful connections. In addition to our professional and social networking events, Indie R maintains a few original projects aimed at restoring the principle of popular sovereignty. 

A republic, if you can keep it...

 

Indie Republican is not named after the GOP nor do we recognize the party’s ahistorical claim to the word. Our usage puts back into view the classical Greco-Roman ideal of ‘Res Publica’, Separation of Powers and Article IV Section 4 of the US Constitution.


“The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government,…”


In keeping with Ben Franklin's challenge, “A republic, if you can keep it”, one of our core mission is to restore the public's basic literacy of the word ‘Republican’ to its rightful place in classical history and American civics. 



--------Memo to a New Generation----------------

“Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected.
No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions."

“Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.”

“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”

“Liberty and order will never be perfectly safe, until a trespass on the Constitutional Provisions shall be felt with the same keenness that resents an invasion of the dearest rights;...”
