From NSA Prospect to Libertarian Activist on The Resistance Podcast

Alternative media is amazing because we finally have an escape from the humdrum of headline chasers and can focus on simply having good content and enjoyable conversations. I was so excited to get a chance to appear on The Resistance Podcast with Josh Carter earlier this month to discuss how I went from being a development director and vice president of pro-liberty non-profits, Reason’s youngest major donor, and why I am so committed to elevating our standards of political messaging. We...

Raising Kids who Love Liberty with The Tuttle Twins' Connor Boyack

It's already hard to get your kids reading these days, but getting them to be interested in the ideas and philosophy behind the ideas of liberty can be even more difficult. With public schools teaching one way of viewing the world on top of the non-stop distraction of life, it's been the prayer of freedom minded parents around the country to finally have something they could get their children to enjoy and learn from. Those prayers for a fun and informative way to bring parents and their...

An Activist Judiciary vs. An Activist Jury with AZ Supreme Court Justice Clint Bolick

It can be frustrating looking for a “win” from the good guys. Far too often we look for big, obvious and life-changing circumstances, but sometimes the good guys do win -- and Clint Bolick is one of those good guys you may or may not have heard about. As the co-founder of the Institute for Justice, Clint knows a thing or two about going toe-to-toe with the government on every level. Now, Clint serves as an Associate Justice on the Arizona Supreme Court, where he has taken his passion for...

The Blue Republican Revolution for Ron Paul with the Foundation for Economic Education’s Robin Koerner

In 2012, thousands of progressives and independents registered as Republicans to support Ron Paul and ended up becoming the largest coalition of his campaign. How in the world did that happen?? It all started with a Huffington Post article by today’s guest, Robin Koerner, who challenged people who love peace to become a “Blue Republican,” just for a year — and the rest is history. But a lot has changed since then, and if we want to get those Blue Republicans and other liberty-curious...

Using Facebook to Supercharge Your Campaign (Jenn Gray on the How to Run for Office Podcast)

We know Facebook can be a powerful tool for campaigns. But using it EFFECTIVELY is tricky, so today’s episode will give you some quick wins you can implement right away. This interview originally aired on the How to Run for Office podcast with Raz Shafer, who wrote: “Each week I get to interview candidates, elected officials and campaign rockstars, discussing everything from Facebook to Block-Walking.

Overcoming Campaign Chaos with My Campaign Coach’s Raz Shafer

If you've ever been involved in a political campaign - whether as a block walker, campaign manager, or even a candidate (or anywhere in between!) - you've probably experienced a certain degree of... campaign chaos. It's hard to anticipate all the challenges coming at us on the campaign trail... and even harder to put future systems in place to solve them when we have fires to put out NOW. I've encountered plenty of these unexpected obstacles lately on Larry Sharpe's campaign, and...

Engaging New Donors on Fundraising Apps with DonorSee’s Gret Glyer

Facebook meets Uber for fundraising? Building community with low-dollar donors (and demonstrating that their support really does make a difference) isn't easy - but now, there's an app for that. It's easier to post a project on DonorSee than a picture on Instagram, and dollar-for-dollar, their results are blowing the Red Cross (and taxpayer-funded foreign aid) out of the water. The government even banned the Peace Corps from using the app, so you know it must be good. But then again,...

Making Peace with the Military with Combat Veteran Marc Sepulveda

Why do some factions of the freedom movement seem to have such an ax to grind with the military? Sure, it would be great if we had a war and no one showed up, but back in real life, the military isn't going anywhere... and at least 76 percent of the general public has a favorable view of every branch. Tha's a good thing though, because veterans are natural allies for pro-liberty causes and campaigns. More active duty servicemen and veterans supported Gary Johnson and Ron Paul than any...

How to Raise Money with Events and Volunteers with the Libertarian Party’s Jess Mears

Raising money is hard. Raising money for Libertarians is even harder. So how can we use the resources we have today to build a stronger base tomorrow? We should never start asking for money if we can’t explain why we need it, how we’re going to spend it, and how much the things we need are going to cost… but once we’ve got that foundation, where do we go from there? As Development Coordinator for the Libertarian National Committee (and Johnson Weld 2016’s Director of Digital Events),...

The Power of Alternative Media (And How to Do It Right) with Being Libertarian’s Nicholas Veser

If you had the opportunity to tell your story to the entire liberty movement (and beyond), how would you do it? Capturing the essence of our message in a substantive, entertaining way isn’t easy, but that’s what Nicholas Veser does best. You may know him as the host of Being Libertarian’s “Daily Headline” video segments, but what you may not know is that he also brings his umpteen Telly Awards worth of experience to video marketing pieces for other pro-liberty causes and campaigns. He’s...

How to Get Libertarians Elected (Really) with the Libertarian Leadership Academy’s C Michael Pickens

"It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds." That was Samuel Adams in 1775, and his legacy became the Libertarian Leadership Academy’s mission. Michael Pickens has helped numerous Libertarian candidates achieve local wins and record-breaking vote totals, and in this LIVE interview, he’s telling all on how they did it… and how your campaign can too. So here’s what you’ll learn in this episode of Leading...

Does the Liberty Movement Need to Lighten Up? with We Are Libertarians’ Chris Spangle

Liberty in danger is no laughing matter. Or is it? We Are Libertarians is “treating modern politics with all the irreverence it deserves,” and it’s earned them one of the largest followings in the freedom movement. And what’s really remarkable about their rapidly growing podcast and Facebook page is that the marketing behind them is almost entirely organic (a.k.a. free). So here’s what you’ll learn in this episode of Leading Liberty: So on that note, let’s dive into the...

A Message of Hope and Optimism with Libertarian Candidate and Activist Alex Merced

Libertarian ideas don’t sell themselves. Just like any product, liberty needs great marketing and positive messengers, and that’s what this episode is all about. Alex Merced is the founder of the Libertarian Positivity Caucus, the creator of Libertarian Wing Media and the Libertarianism 101 online course, the host of several podcasts, and a candidate for comptroller in New York. He’s also run for public advocate and U.S. Senate, and with that experience comes a really refreshing...

Mastering Public Relations for Liberty with the Institute for Justice’s John Kramer

Even when we lose the battle, we can still win the war. And no one knows that better than the “merry band of libertarian litigators” at the Institute for Justice. If you’ve ever heard the word “Kelo,” you’ve experienced the power of public relations, but what you might not know is the strategy and philosophy of the man behind it. As Vice President of Communications at IJ, John Kramer has directed the media relations for 6 landmark Supreme Court cases (among many others), 5 of which they...

The Next Chapter for the Libertarian Party with LNC Chairman Nicholas Sarwark

The Libertarian Party may have its challenges, but it’s the ONLY party in the United States that’s actually growing. And that’s thanks in large part to Nicholas Sarwark, the chairman of the Libertarian National Committee. He’s a warrior for ballot access, debate inclusion, and candidate recruitment, and after almost 20 years of experience, his vision and perspective on the future of the Libertarian movement are absolutely inspiring (in my humble opinion). So here’s what you’ll learn in...

Side Hustle Salesmen for Liberty with Ask a Libertarian’s Jared Miller

How much of a difference can you really make with a family and a full-time job? Even if you don’t work at a think tank or have time to run for office, that doesn’t mean you can’t make a valuable contribution to the cause. What the freedom movement needs most right now is more “salesmen,” i.e. better communicators who can start compelling conversations about liberty. And that’s exactly what the volunteer squad over at Ask A Libertarian is all about. Today’s guest is an editor and...

How Much to Spend on Political or Non-Profit Facebook Ad Campaigns

Did you know that donors age 40-59 give online more than any other age group, and that 26 percent do so as a result of a request from another individual on social media? Meanwhile, millennial and Latino voters say they’re more than twice as likely to vote for someone after watching a video, and it only costs about a penny apiece to show them one. Sooo… who wants to knock some digital doors with me?! I’ve used Facebook video ads to kickstart small businesses, raise money for grassroots...

Freeing Minds & Markets with Online Video with Reason TV’s Jim Epstein

How did Reason come to be a practically household name within the freedom movement, and what can other pro-liberty non-profits learn from their success? Online video is totally changing people’s first impression of free market ideas, and Reason has attracted a massive following with their short-form documentaries and video editorials. Today’s guest, Jim Epstein, is a writer and producer for Reason TV, and he's been at it with video since before Facebook and YouTube were even a thing, so...
