ON-Lion Letter

"'Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech,' according to Benjamin Franklin," begins a piece by editor-in-chief Elizabeth Lincicome in the new first issue of The Torch, published by the Liberty Foundation of America in Oklahoma City.  "As the Liberty Foundation of America reflects back on the ups and downs of 2014, and eagerly anticipates an exciting and news-filled 2015, we've concluded there is a lot we want to explore and educate our audience on, so we've started a monthly magazine.  You can probably guess what the title refers to ... welcome to The Torch."

Lincicome is the communications director at the Liberty Foundation, which is substantially supported by Milwaukee's Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation.

"Within each issue of The Torch," she continues, "you'll find high-quality writing on a range of timely and diverse topics, including big labor, jobs, government spending, energy, federalism, and agriculture.  We're also ecstatic to announce that two-time Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Michael Ramirez, whose work you've seen in Investor's Business Daily and The Weekly Standard, will be a Contributing Editor to our publication.

"A key part of the Liberty Foundation's mission is to utilize our local partnerships and emphasize state primacy and personal liberty as national policy," Lincicome also writes.  "As such, we've partnered with our friends and allies across the country to educate and share research and talent in an effort to rebalance the powers of the federal government to more closely resemble what our Foundation Fathers set in motion.  We know we cannot tackle this alone, which is why each month we'll have guest contributions from state leaders and key political figures on the issues that matter to you most."
