Marc Clair (Editor-in-chief)- (articles)
An ardent believer in libertarian ideals for over a decade, Marc decided to thrust himself into writing for the cause after becoming inspired by the Presidential campaigns of Ron Paul. In 2011, he helped to co-found the Lions Of Liberty with several like-minded friends from their college days at Penn State nearly a decade earlier. When he’s not serving as editor-in-chief of Lions Of Liberty and host and producer of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, he is busy with a freelance career in television and running a karaoke business in Los Angeles, CA. Marc is also a contributing writer for sports and pop culture website Place to be Nation.
John Odermatt – (articles)
John, otherwise known as Odie, developed an interest in politics and economics at a young age. In 2007, John’s eyes were opened when a fellow contributor to this site, Marc Clair, introduced him to a unique Republican, Congressman Ron Paul. Ever since then, a significant amount of his free time has been dedicated to reading and studying the ideals of liberty. When John is not fervently defending liberty, he earns a living working in Project Controls for an engineering company.
Brian McWilliams – (articles)
Brian McWilliams is a native Philadelphian currently living in Los Angeles and practicing public relations and stand up comedy with equal aplomb. His passion and concern for liberty was realized during Ron Paul’s 2008 campaign, which shed light on the troubling initiatives our government was embracing that infringed on the tenets that the United States was founded upon.
Domenic John – (articles)
Known in his closest circles as the snake (or snaike), Domenic has long held most dearly the principles of personal liberty and accountability under different ideological banners. Ron Paul’s 2008 campaign exposed Domenic to the intellectual base of libertarian philosophy and Austrian economics, ideas that reflected his own values and ideals and motivated him to reject the two party attitude. Feeling obligated to further spread the message of liberty, he is now a self loathing blogger in his limited spare time. Domenic reconciles his blogging hypocrisy with a moral obligation to tell the untold story that is either ignored or demonized by more traditional information outlets.
Joe Beck (articles)
Like many of the newer libertarians and Rothbardians, he began his interest in politics during the presidential campaign of Ron Paul in 2007. Joe sees the State as the ultimate obstacle to peace and prosperity for all mankind — the ultimate objective of sane political action. While working at a software vendor for local government entities, he began to read the works of Murray Rothbard and other great Austrians. Needless to say, his professional life and intellectual hobby did not mesh well. Luckily, he is no longer involved in the fleecing of the taxpayer for services that can be provided at lower costs and at higher quality by a freed market. Joe lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
James E Miller

His work has been published in a number of outlets including LewRockwell.com, Zerohedge.com, Taki’s Magazine, and his hometown newspaper the Press and Journal. He is a proponent of natural law in the Thomistic/Rothbardian tradition and takes great pride in ridiculing modern egalitarianism. He currently works as a copywriter in the District of Criminals. His work at Lions of Liberty reflects his personal views and not any of those organizations he is affiliated with.

Derrel Walters (articles)
A chemist by education, Derrel Walters is currently working to complete his PhD research under the world renowned theoretical chemist Peter Pulay. Politically and philosophically influenced by the the likes of Ron Paul, Murray Rothbard, Ayn Rand, and his father, Derrel Walters marches to the beat of his own drum. He prides himself in his willingness to respectfully disagree with authority, to not waiver under pressure, and to gracefully admit when he realizes that he has been in error. He strongly believes that abundant liberty and effective communication are at the foundations of an optimally productive society. In addition, he feels that governments act as training wheels for the People, and that one day, humanity will ride its bike without them.
