SARASOTA, Fla., June 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Kim Githler, CEO of MoneyShow, was chosen as one of Newsmax's "Top 100 Most Influential Libertarians." Ms. Githler is listed 93 out of 10,0000 possible candidates. She is joined by Ron Paul, Steve Forbes, John Stossel, and others, some of whom are speakers at MoneyShow events.
The list of favorite libertarians in politics, academia, entertainment, finance, and more was determined by Newsmax and a survey conducted in March by FreedomFest. Over 10,000 people responded to the Newsmax/FreedomFest Survey. Newsmax and FreedomFest reviewed the results and selected their list of Top 100 Most Influential Libertarians with an assessment of their influence.
To compile this list, Newsmax editors defined a libertarian as a consistent advocate of free-market capitalism, minimal government, and social tolerance. The effort to rank the 100 most influential libertarians came from a recent survey of libertarians carried out by FreedomFest, "the world's largest gathering of free minds."
"I am an avid advocate of the philosophy of our founding fathers, which is freedom and liberty for all Americans," says Githler.
Among the 100:
Ron Paul, Former US Representative and three-time presidential candidate
Thomas Sowell, The Hoover Institution's Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow on Public Policy at Stanford University
John Stossel, Emmy award-winning network and cable newsman and best-selling author
