Liberty on the Rocks is a grassroots organization whose goal is to help people establish social environments to educate, unite and activate liberty-minded individuals within their community. Networks aim to unite individuals not only with one another, but also with the freedom-based organizations in their local communities. Liberty on the Rocks will work with all liberty-oriented organizations and/or groups to help connect them with potential students, volunteers and/or members, so they may better expose their message and the educational information they produce to individuals in their community. With chapters in cities from Phoenix to Denver, Vancouver to Nashville, it was about time to harness the power of the movement in the nation’s capital.

Aug. 16th — Meetup with Pete Coors!

Pete Coors – Up On The Roof!

“A ‘COORS’ original and a Colorado ‘Native’”

Primaries are (will be) over!!! Time to toast the victors, rally the troops, and re-evaluate the road map going forward with words of wisdom from our esteemed guest speaker, Pete Coors. Yep, that’s correct, Pete Coors! This Colorado legend is a down to earth, philanthropic civic leader and talented businessman. I would encourage you, as always, to bring the family along to meet Mr. Coors and hear his perspective on public policy. This really is a golden opportunity to garner insight from a man who walks the talk. Let’s rock the roof for this meetup and bring some new friends along!

If you have not heard of Mr. Coors (really?), please find more details about our guest speaker at:

Note: We hope to have some fashionable black T’s available (keep your fingers crossed), so bring some extra cash and be the first to spread the Liberty word in your district.
