Indie R (Republican) is a network of independent-minded New Yorkers who regard the American notion of freedom and liberty as transcendent and universally aspirational. We do not recognize the popular labels, metrics and affiliations invented by Collectivists and Big Parties to suppress individual dissent and initiative.
Founded in 2010, Indie R has since become the word-of-mouth destination for Gotham's elusive society of Classical Liberals, Free Thinkers and Patriots seeking to build quality friendships and engage local politics on their own terms.
Our Quarterly Speakeasy event is based on the Founding Father's rebels-on-the-run format. We are known for our welcoming and no-strings-attached vibe.
In addition to our Meetup events, IndieR provides our members with the know-how to participate in New York state and local politics.
The name of our group is a tribute to the republican form of government mentioned in Article IV Section 4 of the US Constitution and it's Greco-Roman origins. We are not named after the GOP nor do we recognize the Party's exclusive claim to that word.
Indie R reiterates for a new generation the timeless ideas of revolutionary thinkers such as Lucius Junius Brutus, James Madison, Tocqueville and Ayn Rand.
Join us as we embolden a new generation to defy the Collective and pursue the next Age of Enlightenment and Emancipation.
