Policy of liberty is dedicated to the advancement of liberty and responsibility in society. Its philosophy is neither strictly libertarian nor strictly conservative, though strongly supporting the former in terms of economics and the latter on most social issues, abortion in particular. "Pro-life libertarian" is the term that makes the most sense. POL provides resources, links, books and articles, an email list, photos and links to famous economists, great quotations for liberty.
