Many libertarians and libertarian-minded Americans have various organizations bookmarked in their web browsers. Others who may not have identified themselves as 'libertarian' may be surprised to learn they are libertarian as they search for other labels for themselves other than liberal or conservative. As we wrote yesterday, Americans have been disassociating themselves from both the Democratic and Republican parties, so they may be looking for a political party, like the Libertarian Party which may be closer to their point of view.

We are including what we view are the 12 best websites libertarians can go to for the best information on policy and news. This list is not intended to be the definitive guide to libertarian websites and is subjective, so if you have others you would like others to know about, create a comment below.

Besides being self-serving by including this column, the list includes the Libertarian Party, Reason, the CATO Institute, The Atlas Society, Lew Rockwell, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Adam vs. The Man, Learn Liberty, Institute for Justice, Reason Foundation and Advocates for Self Government.

Founded in 1991, the Institute for Justice is what a civil liberties law firm should be. As the national law firm for liberty, we stick to a clear mission engaging in cutting-edge litigation and advocacy both in the courts of law and in the court of public opinion on behalf of individuals whose most basic rights are denied by the government. Our four pillars of litigation are private property, economic liberty, free speech and school choice. Simply put, we seek a rule of law under which individuals can control their destinies as free and responsible members of society.
The Institute for Justice is a 501(c)(3) organization; donations are tax-deductible.

Adam Kokesh

Adam Kokesh

Host Adam Kokesh reveals the reality of government based not on protecting the freedoms of the people, but exploiting them to perpetuate its own power and serve its sponsors. But the show’s not just about politics: it’s about living like a free, dignified human being, living like government doesn’t exist, and loving it. Adam’s experience as a United States Marine, Republican Congressional candidate, and all-around badass activist, make him uniquely qualified to take down the man behind the curtain.
