Michael Badnarik

Hello. My name is Michael. I am a philosopher, author, and polymath, which means that I am an expert in many different subjects. My life history includes being a scuba instructor casually swimming with sharks, and a skydiving instructor jumping out of “perfectly good airplanes” with terrified students in my hands. I also ran for President of the United States and won the Libertarian Party’s nomination in 2004. My name was on the ballot in 48 states and Washington, D.C. But the thing that excites me the most is sharing my wealth of knowledge with you. I believe that learning should be fun, and instead of coaxing you to memorize incoherent data, I help you see the relationships within the data so you can understand the fundamentals.

This allows you to correctly calculate future answers on your own. I specialize in science and philosophy, but I can also help you develop other skills like sailing and hitting your target 99% of the time. I am willing to do one-on-one consulting, so feel free to contact me if you would like my advice on anything. I strongly suggest that you join my mailing list so you can be one of the first to know when and where I will be speaking, or what my next book is going to be about. I hope to develop a personal friendship with you that will benefit us both.

Philosophical Lighthouse

If you find yourself struggling to solve problems and wondering if you are jinxed, you are probably operating with an inconsistent philosophy…

Our philosophy guides, not what we think, but how we think. By reading Philosophical Lighthouse, you have the potential to increase your lifespan and live a happier and more peaceful life. These are the payoffs of making good decisions. And, good decisions are the result of having a good, or effective, philosophy.

Other Books

Secret to Sovereignty

In every decision about your life, either you can make that decision, or the government can make it for you. Who do you think is the best person to make decisions about your life?

Good to be King

In medieval Europe, only the King could own property. Written for Everyman, just as our Constitution was written for us all, this book shows why, in America, YOU are the King.

The Secret to Sovereignty is secret no more! Michael Badnarik has written the book that desperately needed to be written. No magic bullet: it promises nothing yet delivers everything you need to know. If you are ready to throw off the shackles of slavery, Michael shows us how.

Syndicated Radio Host

Michael Badnarik has created a constitutional primer that will edify and entertain school children and seasoned libertarians alike. Good to be King presents a thoroughly readable explanation of how our constitutional republic should work, and how the system became broken in the first place.

A Philosophical Vision

My goal is to help reverse the intellectual and moral decay increasing in the world around us. If I were the newly crowned Miss America (just hypothetically, of course) I would wish, not for world peace, but for a universal quest for knowledge.

Actionable Issues

You don’t get to be a Presidential Nominee without having a firm stance on some serious issues. Explore my quotes below to get a better understanding of who I am and what I believe in.

Issues

Gun Rights

“I am a very peaceful man. I love people and am known for my gregarious personality. However, if you try to confiscate my guns, I will feel compelled to give them to you, one bullet at a time.”

Government

“The question is: How bad do things have to get before you will do something about it? Where is your line in the sand? If you don’t enforce the constitutional limitations on your government very soon, you are likely to find out what World War III will be like. I’m quite sure that I will never experience that war – because dissidents are always the first to be eliminated.”

Mandatory Vaccines

“You bring the syringe, I’ll bring my .45, and we’ll see who leaves a bigger hole.”

Government is necessary for our survival.

The Founding Fathers created a special place for government.

It is called the Constitution.
