elcome to The Libertarian Institute!

Our goal is to unite the libertarian movement, and more importantly, to realign American politics — prioritizing opposition to the worst of state power: the permanent war state, the prison and police states, and corporate welfare, corrupt contracts, and bank bailouts that rig the economy for the political class.

The Libertarian Institute’s mission is to prioritize these issues and work with other groups from across the political spectrum against the greatest of abuses by the State.

The Libertarian Institute is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization.
All donations are fully tax-deductible.
