I would like to extend an open invitation to all to join the Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC).
Our organization works through the Republican Party to promote libertarian ideals. We do this by promoting and endorsing liberty minded candidates. We attend GOP events to cultivate relationships within the Republican Party and identify like-minded party members. We also work with single issue groups and combine forces to pursue mutual interest. Essentially, our mission is nothing short of changing the GOP’s political culture to one rooted in libertarian ideals. Unlike many of the organizations springing up in the wake of Ron Paul’s presidential run, we have been in existence since 1990 and run a politically experienced organization. We are a national organization with established members in each of the 50 states. We’re organized enough to even have an attached Political Action Committee (PAC) that donates to campaigns of pro-liberty candidates.
Ron Paul himself was once chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus and is CURRENTLY a member of our advisory board. Dr. Paul has often stated that what we’re doing in the campaign isn’t just about him, it’s about the message. This isn’t merely a campaign, this is a movement. The Republican Liberty Caucus is the vehicle for our movement. I know that many of you have been debating what we should do moving forward; I’ve heard everything from joining the Libertarian or Constitution Parties to remaining an independent. I urge you all to consider instead using the working through the Republican Party.
While the Libertarian and Constitution parties are principled organizations made up of fine people, they have continued to fail at electing anyone to Congress over the last 35 years. Note the fact that Ron Paul has been elected as a Republican and not a Libertarian. And the number of individuals either group has elected to state legislatures over that same time period has not been much better. Even in New Hampshire, where Libertarians have been elected multiple times to the State House, they were always cross listed on the ballot as Republican candidates under what is known as a “fusion ticket.”
I know many of you probably are concerned that, by joining the Republicans you will be assimilated to the point where you may have to sacrifice your principles and beliefs. That is why I urge you to join us because we operate, although within the GOP, completely independent of the party’s leadership. None of or funds go to the Republican National Committee because we are well aware that their agenda is to elect people and not necessarily promote the ideals of liberty and freedom.
Instead of leaving the party and trying to do something that has not be accomplished in 150 years, that is create a new major political party, we continue the fight from within, using more of our resources on getting our candidates elected as opposed to using them up on things such as ballot access and media exposure that third party candidates have to scream and beg for.
The Republican Liberty Caucus does not have a platform per se, but it is committed to essentially the same principals that Ron Paul is. Please see the link at the bottom for a more detailed explanation. The RLC was also one of the endorsers of the Free State Project.
The Revolution does not end with this presidential run; this is merely the start. In the words of Patriot John Paul Jones, we “have not yet begun to fight!”

Republican Liberty Caucus Liberty Index:
We strive to rank all the candidates for US House and Senate on how libertarian their voting records and stances are. This is an excellent resource that provides ranking on each candidate. We need to update it again, and your involvement can make that happen. Please note that many of the candidates endorsed in 2004 were not endorsed in 2006. We found that some of them were no longer committed to libertarian principles.
