Indie Republican recharges the timeless ideals of individual liberty and popular sovereignty for a new generation of unaffiliated Americans (i.e., independent voters) struggling to uphold their freedoms in the 21st century.

Let us embolden you to create a world where self-determination, individual property rights and freedom is respected.

“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;...”
