Indie R is a network of independent liberty lovers, connected by a mission to secure America's founding freedoms and constitutional republic in the 21st century.

We provide the platform for a new generation of classical liberals, free thinkers and founders to build friendships, learn civics and innovate good governance—without reference to legacy parties or political labels.  

Founded in 2010, New York City, our ‘Speakeasy Assembly’ has since become a popular gathering ground for freedom-oriented independents and dissident artists who feel at home with our non-aligned* yet classically based, liberty-centered outlook


Besides our social and professional networking events, Indie R also serves as a hub for creatives to initiate projects that advance liberty at the municipal level.

Hello Independence 2.0

Indie R promotes a DIY ethos, self-mastery and localism* as an alternative culture for creating a free and prosperous society. 

We embolden members to challenge the presumptions of absolute power and question autocratic ideas just as we motivate them to take greater ownership of their public institutions...or create better ones. 

Our emphasis on ‘We the People’ replaces the traditional divisions—Left versus Right, Liberal versus Conservative, Democrat versus Republican—that places liberty as a feature of the ‘Right’ rather than as a universal civic value.

Indie R is ultimately about connecting the Founder's revolutionary insights and passion for self-determination to a modern audience who have yet to get the memo that Americans don't live by the edicts of kings...much less bow to the dictates of their public servants. 

Know Your ‘R’s

Indie R is short for Independent Republican.

We are not named after the GOP nor do we recognize that party's exclusive claim and usage of that word. 

Our definition of “Republican” is a tribute to Greco-Roman history, the principle of Separation of Powers, and Article IV Section 4 of the US Constitution which states:

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

The name of our group intends to correct the misapprehension that America is a democracy and to improve the public's knowledge and appreciation of classical republicanism.
