Fabulous Liberty Island Launch Party in NYC

Last week, I had the sheer pleasure of being a guest at the Liberty Island official launch party at 44 in New York City. Liberty Island, a new Conservative-Libertarian media company and publisher, explains their mission thus:

All in all, it was a wonderful night, full of optimism, creative energy, and high spirits. The counterculture is well underway!

And if you haven't yet, visit Liberty Island!
