We are the Republican Liberty Caucus of Oklahoma.
The OKRLC is dedicated to restoring limited government politics to the Republican Party. This caucus exists to (1) recruit pro-liberty Republican activists and candidates who actively promote the principles of individual rights, limited government, free enterprise, and the adherence to the rule of law, and (2) inform members of pro-liberty happenings in the state, and (3) provide a forum for event coordination, planning and communications.
Founded in 1991, the Republican Liberty Caucus works to advance the principles of limited government, individual liberty and free markets within the Republican Party and throughout America.
There is a disturbing trend coming to light among our state and local government officials. It is the loss of focuses on only providing legitimate essential public services to the community, and, the openness in which they aggressively pursue additional tax revenue, fines, and fees in the name of increasing personal safety, providing free education, insuring equal living conditions and outcomes, and removing any and all suffering from the human condition.
This attitude that government elected officials should have unlimited and unchecked power to enact forced property and wealth redistribution has always been there, but it was always hidden just under the surface. Now given over to more embolden methods by talks of new progressive socialism those back room discussions are coming out of the shadows.
This open season on taxpayers in the name of progress is happening now more openly, in public meetings and forums, freely endorsed by progressive news media as absolutely necessary, especially now during talks of bloated budget reductions and corrupt agency audits.

Person A: #AbolishGovernmentSchools! Person B: But private schools are too expensive! Person A: Government implemented monopolies flood the market with cheap supply which has the effect of either artificially lowering prices or, in the case of government schools, eliminating prices altogether thus insulating the educational marketplace from an influx of private capital and competition that would have otherwise flowed in having the effect of providing numerous and plentiful low cost and high quality educational options in an environment where demand for such private services would justify such capital expenditures. Person B: Why don't you explain this to me like I'm 5. Person A: Mommy and Daddy let you go and open a lemonade stand. They tell you to go into your piggy bank and take out the $10 dollar bill that Grandma gave you for your birthday in order to purchase the lemonade you want to sell. But Tommy down the street sets up a lemonade stand right beside you. Also, Tommy has a gun and he goes around robbing people (even people who don't drink lemonade) to give him their money so Tommy can then go buy his lemonade which he can then offer to the neighborhood for free. You decide that given this situation, using the $10 that Grandma gave you to start up a different kind of business would be better.
