|Liberty Chronicle Independent celebrates it's first anniversary, created on March 12, 2016|
If you had told me 10 years ago that I would be an Editor of a news aggregator for Third-Parties, Liberty minded candidates/politicians and groups, I'd have told you that you were crazy. Here we are though, 2017 and celebrating the first anniversary of LCI. We have published over 80 articles filled with media releases by liberty candidates and interviews with them, from all over the world.

LCI had and still maintains many independent contributors and their articles, such as Ken Buckler (former E.I.C.) with articles that were featured on the front page of the Libertarian Party's website. Articles by Chaplain Scott Scrimshaw who wrote amazing pieces during the Gary Johnson campaign. A notable personal favorite of mine is the article about how everyone was (and still is) afraid of Hillary Clinton, from all sides of the political spectrum. We were able to make impacts with local individuals such as Mike Lapointe who worked day and night towards community development and helping the homeless of Everett, WA and surrounding Greater Seattle area. The Facebook page of Liberty Chronicle Independent saw major numbers for a starting site with some months hitting half a million combined views between the website, Twitter, and Facebook page.

Just a few days ago at the time of this article's release, I was informed that LCI is now being used as a source on Wikipedia, citing the 2014 and hopefully 2018 Libertarian Governor candidate of Maryland, Shawn Quinn.
|LCI is being sourced via Wikipedia, a place in history books forever.|
So what lies ahead for LCI? More, much more. This is only the beginning. The goal is to have independent contributors from every state, even from around the world. The mainstream media is dying. People are rejecting the old two party system. Currently, Gen Z is growing up with Liberty as the idea of "counter-culture." This is the future of media and news. LCI's news ticker grabs information daily from across the world for Libertarian, Green and Constitution Party, New Right and much more liberty minded news. The expansion of news coverage will only continue.
