Mike Tilden

Mike Tilden is the owner and operator of Battle For Liberty, and the host of the Battle for Liberty Podcast.  Mike spreads the message of liberty by providing simple, contextual explanations of the basic tenets of libertarianism: non-aggression and private property.

Mike began his journey in the liberty movement in late 2012 and hasn’t looked back since.  As a self-described recovering Republican, Mike seeks to unlearn the propaganda he learned in government-run schools, and fill his mind with rational thought and true history.

Major influences include (in no particular order) Frederic Bastiat, Henry Hazlitt, Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard, Walter Block, Tom Woods, Donald Livingston, Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, Thomas DiLorenzo, Mike Church, Lew Rockwell, and Milton Friedman.

Mike is loving husband and father of two amazing children.

Evan Caltrider

Evan Caltrider is a mixture of mostly libertarian and to a lesser degree conservative thought that considers factors of history and present day situations. He tries to influence people who are stuck in a left/right paradigm to realize that maximum liberty is obtained outside of what they’ve been spoon fed by schools, social media and so called journalists on TV. He believes this is done through combining thinking about what is plausible and what is common sense based on root philosophical governmental, social and economic principles that are essential to freedom.

Evan used to be a liberal before he knew better, switched to the republican party as an alternative, and found libertarianism, as many did, through Ron Paul and new it was the best fit. Yet he realizes no politician will ever be perfect for him.

Major influences include (no order other than alternating mostly libertarian and conservatives) Ron Paul, Glenn Beck, Tom Woods, Andrew Wilkow, Milton Friedman, Stephen Crowder, Thomas Paine, Mark Levin, Thomas Sowell, Gavin McInnes, Ludwig von Mises, Frederic Bastiat, Murray Rothbard and of course our founding fathers for having the guts to establish the best country in human history.
