Ryan Ramsey is The Libertarian Heathen, presently residing in rural North Florida. He has 2 daughters, Lillian and Rowan, and a son Hank. Another son, Alexander, crossed the Rainbow Bridge in August 2017.
He served in the United States Navy as a GM-2, and was a missile launcher technician on a Perry Class Frigate. He was Honorably Discharged in 1999. Since then he works as an Electrical Superintendent.
A wrongful arrest for a misdemeanor firearm violation in 1998 could have created another story. The charges were dropped, but it set him on a path of activism, starting with FIJA, and leading him to found Jacksonville Open Carry in 2010.
He joined with other gun rights activists around Florida, and their efforts coalesced into what is now known as Florida Carry Inc. Finding an exception to Florida’s ban on the open carry of firearms while fishing, the group started having monthly “Open Carry Fish – Ins” on public piers and waterways around the state to generate media attention to their cause.
They faced threats of arrest and harassment, but continued until they were able to get a bill to legalize open carry into the Florida Legislature.
In 2011 he made his first appearance in the Florida Senate, discovering a talent for public speaking, and the thrill of victory over those who would deny the inalienable rights all men are born with.
The bill was eventually amended to take full open carry out despite the success in the committee hearings. He continues to fight for open carry in Florida, successfully pushing the bill through the Florida House of Representatives in 2016, but the Senate Republicans refused to schedule it for a vote.
The following years saw an expansion into a larger liberty arena, and in 2014 with the love of his life, he founded “The Florida Liberty Project”, a non-partisan state level civil rights group, and began working on a number of issues including a bill in the name of Jason Westcott, requiring body cameras on all LEO’s in Florida that can satisfy both police and civil liberties groups. Other items include Contractor License reform and a repeal of the Florida Paramilitary Training Act.
On April 19, 2015, The Sons and Daughters of Liberty, or SDL, was launched nationwide. Featuring a county level organization with a stripped down platform, designed to appeal to a wider audience. It is based on restoring the Bill of Rights in the US Constitution, and opposing the ten planks of the Communist Manifesto.
He had a founding role in creating The American Guard,
He is Vice President of his local Proud Boy Chapter.
Believing in the need for both political and social reform and that current parties are failing to protect the Bill of rights, he is active in the Libertarian Party of Florida, and in late 2015 founded the Bradford County Affiliate, serving as its Chairman. In April, 2016 he was elected by a unanimous vote of the delegates, to the State Executive Committee of the LPF, Representing Region 4, which includes the following counties:
He is now serving his 3rd term, unanimously elected each time.
He founded 4 more active affiliates, and motioned to affiliate another out of the region. With help from a man he calls “Florida’s Lafayette”, a French Citizen named Pierre Creveux, Region 4 recruited record amounts of candidates for the November 2018 election, including himself, in a bid for a Florida House seat. Post-election they are tied for 2nd in the state for the most elected officials, as Florida ascended to the #2 state in the US for number of elected Libertarians. Creveaux was brought to the US as a child by his mother when Russia invaded his native Georgia, and was undocumented. He has since self deported to work for the administration of Georgia’s incoming President, Salome Zurabishvili.
A singer, guitarist, and songwriter, he plays right wing rock, metal, and country with various bands like Lovecrime, Gangsters of Love, Rooftop Koreans, and others.
He hosts a podcast with artists, activists, academics, and politicians from around the world called “Global Dissident Voices“, which is being relaunched as truly global by 2023 adding hosts from Proud Boy chapters around the world.
He also volunteers for “Stomp out Child Abuse“.
He publishes a wide variety of articles, practical activist guides, and opinion pieces on issues.
In 2016, seeking to bring the voices of Veterans to bear in an effort to restore the foreign policy of the founding fathers, he founded the nationwide “Libertarian Veteran’s Caucus“.
He is not a party man. He also works with NPA and GOP candidates and officials, and the Republican Liberty Caucus. He is also donating many hours of paralegal work to Proud Boys entrapped by the DOJ after the stolen presidential election on Jan 6, 2021.
This page is dedicated to offering practical advice and opinions to Paleo Libertarians and other traditionalists, as well as to provide outreach to the heathen community, in order to spread his belief that libertarianism is the only political philosophy compatible with the natural law at the root of heathenry.
