Our contributors represent the broad spectrum of viewpoints within libertarian philosophy to bring you a balanced look at the world. As long as it fits within the basic principles of libertarianism, we want to share it and let you sort out what you believe. With nearly 20 millennial contributors, the site is uniquely positioned to express the libertarian vision of the future. Despite this youth, our contributors bring a combined 35 years experience of political activism, party leadership, campaign leadership, issue activism, and journalism.

He attended IUPUI where he was the College Republicans President during the 2004 elections. While working on Andy Horning’s Congressional campaign in 2004, Horning inspired Spangle to research the libertarian philosophy. Spangle went on to work at Newstalk 1430 AM, WXNT for 5 years as a producer and reporter. During his last year there he was the producer of “Abdul in the Morning,” the premier political talk show in Indianapolis. It was during this time that he witnessed first-hand how broken the two-party system is, although he had been a life-long Republican, he decided to work to grow the Libertarian Party of Indiana and to affect social and political change in a libertarian direction.

He began running the day-to-day operations of the LPIN in October of 2008 and left in December of 2012. During his time as the Executive Director he oversaw the complete overhaul of the LPIN website, expanded their marketing to include social media, implemented the Libertarian training center and the LP 101 website and classes as well as recruited and trained hundreds of Libertarian candidates. He is still heavily involved in the LPIN.

Spangle went on to work in marketing for the Englehart Group, a political consulting and marketing firm in Indianapolis. One of his main clients is the Advocates for Self-Government, the premier libertarian organization giving libertarians the tools to effectively share the message with the general public.

He now works as the web director of a nationally syndicated morning show.

He is the publisher and editor of We Are Libertarians, a news site and podcast that covers national and Indiana politics from the libertarian perspective. He is the founder of WAL Radio Network, which brings you podcasts about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. He  also served as the Chairman of the Board of Free Enterprise Schools, a nonprofit dedicated to expanding school choice. His favorite charity is Rupert’s Kids. Check them out.

Spangle’s view of libertarianism is as follows: “Almost every problem in society can be solved by more freedom and liberty, not less. More specifically, we value Individualism, Individual Rights, Spontaneous Order, The Rule of Law, Limited Government, Free Markets, The Virtue of Production, Natural Harmony of Interests, Peace.http://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/key-concepts-libertarianism.”
