Liberty Central – “Founded in 2009, Liberty Central is a nonprofit organization designed to promote education, civil discourse, and activism focused on protecting core founding principles– limited government, personal responsibility, individual liberty, free enterprise, and national security - of the United States.”

Overton Window – “The Overton Window of Political Possibility is a model developed to explain public policy change. When public policies in a given area, such as education or labor, are arranged from freest to least free, only a relatively narrow window of options will be considered politically acceptable. This window of politically acceptable policies is not defined primarily by what politicians would prefer; rather, it is defined by what they believe they can support and still win re-election. Hence, the window shifts to include new policies or exclude old ones not when ideas change among politicians, but when ideas change in the society that elects them.”

Restore the Tenth – “The Tenth Amendment Coalition is a joint project of the Institute for Policy Innovation (IPI) and the State Policy Network (SPN).  It is an effort to highlight the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which is also the concluding amendment in the Bill of Rights. The Tenth Amendment Coalition is a decentralized group of organizations and individuals who believe it is time to educate elected officials, media and the public about the constitutional limits to and threats of federal power.”

Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice – “The Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice, a non-profit organization established in 1996, was founded upon the ideals and theories of Nobel Laureate economist Milton Friedman and economist Rose D.
