Inherit The Wisdom Of A Polymath

If we don’t study history, we are doomed to repeat it. Knowledge is not just power – knowledge is survival – and Michael has much to share. Considered a master of all trades, Michael teaches a wide variety of subjects including the Constitution, Philosophy, Science, Astronomy, cooking, skydiving, and so much more.

PRESIDENTIAL nominee

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 relationship 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.

{

Government is necessary for our survival. We need government in order to survive. The Founding Fathers created a special place for government.

It is called the Constitution.

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.

Vision

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.”

The Cooking Magic of Elaine Badnarik

One of the many legacies my mother left my brothers and me were two card catalogs of 3”x5” index cards that she used to create the wide variety of meals that we enjoyed, whether we were at home, or camped out in some remote forest as we visited all forty-eight of the continental United States. She was the “glue” that held our family together, and the wind beneath all of our...

A tall ship and a star to sail her by

Sea Fever - by John Masefield I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky, And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by, And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking, And a grey mist on the sea's face and a grey dawn breaking. I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide Is a wild call and a clear call...

Gun coaching – learning to shoot

For anyone interested in learning about guns, or improving their accuracy, I am happy to help you. I have 35 years of shooting experience, and I was trained by the very best. I would gladly share what I've been taught over the years. I AM NOT A CERTIFIED INSTRUCTOR! I don't pretend to be. If you want a certificate "suitable for framing" that you can show all your friends,...
