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 for a new generation.
Founded in 2010, our organization creates an alternate space for unaffiliated individuals, independents and political walkaways to build friendships, learn civics and champion liberty in local politics without being warehoused under Big Party memberships and other mainstream labels.
Our emphasis on Originalism and “We the People” breaks the mindset that political discourse and public policy is best divided along notions of Left vs. Right, Liberal vs. Conservative. Indie R's satellite view discards these low-orbit labels as they do not help Americans detect and unify against the totalitarian and misanthropic agendas advanced by “woke” causes.
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.

--------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;...”
