Indie R is a network of independent liberty-lovers in New York, connected by a universal mission to secure America's freedoms and constitutional republic in the 21st century.
Founded in 2010, we are the standing ground for a new generation of classical liberals, free thinkers and patriots who do not subscribe to the narrow labels and affiliations set by political monopolies.
Our emphasis on Originalism and primacy of “We the People” breaks the habit of grading ideas and policies along ill-defined divisions of Left vs. Right, Liberal vs. Conservative. We believe in restoring a common vocabulary that will help the public detect and unite against the totalitarian worldviews of the illiberal elites.
Our Speakeasy Assembly is the homecoming for NYC's dissident community of classical liberals, free thinkers and patriots. Hosted in various midtown Manhattan locations, our cosmopolitan yet unapologetically patriotic setting is also a popular 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 grassroots legislative projects for members interested in shaping state and local government.

“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;...”
