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 programs creates a grassroots base for unaffiliated individuals, independents and political walkaways to build collaborative friendships, promote civics and become engaged in local politics. 

Indie R's DIY ethic, emphasis on Originalism and ‘We the People’ discards the current labels and divisions invented by the elites to manage public opinion and influence policy. We believe the word 'American' is the only label that matters as it points simply to anyone who values freedom.

 

Consequently, Indie R does not subscribe to modern notions of Left vs. Right, Liberal vs. Conservative as these terms do not help popular culture discern and unify against the cycle of totalitarianism forewarned by America's founding generation

Indie R's 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 a popular stop for New Yorkers to kickoff their weekend and bar circuit. The 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 projects for members interested in shaping state and local government.

A republic, if you can keep it...

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



--------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;...”
