The Declaration of Independents

Independents Day is June 28 This Year!


Coming June 28: The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong With America, by Nick Gillespie and Matt Welch.

The Declaration of Independence talks about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness - not the pursuit of politics. Something has gone horribly wrong with a country where we've got more choice at the coffee shop than we do at the ballot box. The Declaration of Independents charts how to bring the same sort of innovation and personalization that has made our private lives richer and more satisfying to the last bastions of government power such as education, health care, and retirement. Written byReason's Nick Gillespie and Matt Welch, The Declaration of Independents is a rollicking tour of how we got to be freer when it comes to personal identity, creative expression, the workplace, and more. And it's an operator's manual on how to create a liberatory politics for the 21st century.

"This is the up-to-date statement of libertarianism," says New York Times columnist, George Mason University economist,  and Marginal Revolution blogger Tyler Cowen. "Not warmed-over right-wing politics, but real, true-blooded libertarianism in the sense of loving liberty and wanting to find a new path toward human flourishing."

"An enthusiastic, entertaining libertarian critique of American politics, brimming with derision for the status quo and optimism for the future and confident of the right direction." Kirkus Reviews
