`Chris Spangle was raised in Plainfield, Indiana. 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 five years as a producer and reporter. During his last year where 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.

Rob Quartel has hosted 64 episodes.
When I was at the Yale School of Management, Bill Donaldson, the School's first Dean -- was the embodiment of the School's mission: To prepare leaders for public, private, and not-for-profit institutions. That theme has inspired me throughout my career -- which has over the years more often than not involved a start-up venture of one kind or another in all of these sectors. These have included four private sector and three government startups, half a dozen political campaigns (as a senior policy guy in three Presidential campaigns and three for myself), and another half dozen not-for-profit organizations -- in every case a start-up. Being an entrepreneur sometimes means leading change inside an existing organization, and I've done that too at the Federal Maritime Commission and everywhere. Over the course of this career, I've developed some expertise in Homeland security, maritime policy, food and product safety and logistics, government policy making, politics, national transportation policy, entrepreneurship and finance -- and have had a fantastic time along the way, more or less working for no one but myself or the public since I was 27. While I have a strong anchor in history and tradition, I love the "new," whether in technology, people, organizations, whatever -- as that's what distinguishes these United States from everyone else on the planet. When I'm not working on NTELX, our award-winning decision support technology company, I spend a fair amount of my time these days working with young entrepreneurs from various communities including Yale, Rice, and in the DC-Va region.

Greg Lenz has hosted 207 episodes.
My name is Greg Lenz. I enjoy good wine, conversation, and cigars. I currently run an internet marketing company in Indianapolis. I would describe myself as a Libertarian Republican. I say that because I’m a Libertarian in principle, but a Republican in practice. I do vote for Libertarians from time to time, but usually I back Conservative Republicans. I know that it’s that kind of thinking that stops Libertarian growth, but if I vote for a Libertarian and a Republican loses because of it, I wouldn’t be able to forgive myself.
One might ask how do I see my role within the Libertarian party then? Well, I see myself as more of a buttress to the party rather than a pillar, in that I support it from the outside. I’ve been profoundly influenced by the writings of Ayn Rand and consider The Fountainhead a book that changed the course of my life. Most of my political beliefs are the result of an Objectivist framework.
It’s an honor to be a part of this website and I hope my contributions are entertaining, informative, and challenge your beliefs on a daily basis. If you wish to contact me I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Marshall Fritz has hosted 4 episodes.
Marshall Fritz was a legendary and beloved libertarian leader who founded the Advocates for Self-Government and created the world-famous World’s Smallest Political Quiz.
He was an innovator and a genius. He was a brilliant speaker and was extremely personable. He opened many people’s eyes to new ideas and new ways of thinking. He was one of those rare people who literally changed the world.
Marshall died peacefully at home Tuesday, November 4, 2008, after a months-long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 65.
Marshall founded the Advocates in 1985 to help libertarians become successful communicators of the ideas of liberty.
In 1987, Marshall invented the now world-famous World’s Smallest Political Quiz.
The Quiz expanded on a chart created by Libertarian Party co-founder David Nolan. Marshall refined Nolan’s chart and added ten simple questions on political issues. In doing so, he created a Quiz that almost instantly tells takers which political group they are most aligned with, while also introducing them to a far more diverse, and accurate, multi-spectrum portrait of American politics.
The Quiz was an overnight sensation.
“Marshall’s remarkable little Quiz won so many millions of readers over the years that I used to tell him that he really was one of America’s most widely-read writers,” said Advocates for Self-Government President Sharon Harris. “Twenty million plus readers – that’s up there with Dean Koontz, Stephen King and Tom Clancy!”
Since 1987, over ten million card versions of the Quiz have been distributed. On the internet, an online version of the Quiz has been taken over 17 million times. Thousands continue to take it online every day.
Educators found the Quiz to be a natural for classroom use, and today it appears in the supplemental material for some of America’s most popular high school and college textbooks.
The Quiz reached still more millions by being reprinted or discussed in innumerable newspapers and magazines, including the Washington Post, the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the Miami Herald, and the London Sunday Times.
Marshall remained active with the Advocates until his death, serving on its Board of Directors.
In 1994 Marshall founded the Alliance for the Separation of School & State, and was chairman of its Board at the time of his death. For 12 years, he was a leading spokesman for the idea that ending state, federal, and local government involvement in schooling can strengthen the family and improve education for all children.
He was almost single-handedly responsible for bringing the phrase “separation of school and state” into the vernacular.
He was the lead author of the “Proclamation for the Separation of School and State,” which states simply “I proclaim publicly that I favor ending government involvement in education.”
Worldwide, more than 30,000 individuals have endorsed the Proclamation. Prominent signatories include educators ranging from John Taylor Gatto to Mary Pride and Thomas Szasz; business people such as Tom Monaghan, founder of Domino’s Pizza; religious leaders from the late D. James Kennedy and Tim LaHaye, to Rabbi Daniel Lapin and the late Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.; and from Congressman Ron Paul to former U.S. Secretary of Interior and Energy and also former president of Focus on the Family, Don Hodel.
Marshall was born in California in 1943 and earned a B.A. from California State University Fullerton in 1964. A devout Catholic, he and his wife of 44 years, Joan, lived in Fresno, California. They had four grown children and a dozen grandchildren.
“Marshall was a bigger-than-life character,” said Sharon Harris, president of the Advocates. “He had a deep and profound effect on the liberty movement. He touched untold millions of lives. He criss-crossed the U.S. many times and traveled the world, sharing his passions with everyone he met. He loved people, and was equally interested in and comfortable talking with waiters, high school students, religious leaders, CEOs, and political leaders.
“He was the personification of the old Reader’s Digest title, ‘My Most Unforgettable Character,’” Sharon Harris added. “His life was a grand adventure, and all who were lucky enough to spend a little or a lot of time with him will never forget him. He was funny, passionate, brilliant, and one-of-a-kind.”
