Michael Badnarik is the author of two books:

Good to be King is a philosophical discussion of what a legitimate government looks like, followed by an explanation of the Articles, Sections, and clauses in our federal Constitution. In the forward to the book, Congressman Ron Paul writes:
“Michael Badnarik has created a constitutional primer that will edify and entertain school children and seasoned libertarians alike. Good to be King: The Foundation of our Constitutional Freedom presents a thoroughly readable explanation of how our constitutional republic should work, and how the system became broken in the first place.”

Secret to Sovereignty is a personal history of how Michael has learned to deal with a government that fails to adhere to its Constitutional limitations. It is a provocative book, and it was intended to be. In his preface Michael writes:
“Please do not skip to the end of the book in order to find the conclusion. There is no destination. The secret is in the journey. When people ask me, “Michael, how do we solve this problem and get our Liberty back?” I tell them, “I have the answer – but you’re not going to like it.”

Michael is also in the process of writing his third book, entitled Philosophical Lighthouse. Release date is “whenever I get around to it”.

I pride myself on being a POLYMATH: “a person of great learning in several fields of study”
First and foremost, I consider myself a scientist. I got my first chemistry set for Christmas when I was six years old.
Second, I am a philosopher. I analyze everything, determined to understand the WHY of the universe. I never lose a philosophical or political debate.
Third, I have a “Type A” personality, often referred to as “addicted to adrenaline”. I am always ready for a new adventure. My normal sequence is to learn something, become very good at it, and then teach it – usually within a few weeks. Some of my past qualifications include:
  • Advanced First Aid Instructor
  • CPR Instructor
  • Water Safety Instructor Trainer
  • SCUBA Instructor
  • Skydiving Instructor
And those are just the things I had certificates for. I’ve taught countless other subjects simply because I could. If you want to learn a particular topic, or develop a particular skill, ask me. It’s very likely that I’ve already taught that as some point in my life.

In the spirit of “full disclosure” I’ve also run for political office in the past. I have been:
  • 2000 – Libertarian candidate for State Representative
  • 2002 – Libertarian candidate for State Representative
  • 2004 – Libertarian nominee for President of the United States
  • 2006 – Libertarian nominee for Congress in Texas District 10
  • 2009 – elected President of Continental Congress 2009
I have since given up on politics. If intellectual discussion was going to make a difference, it would have done so a long time ago. I do not discuss politics with people unless they have a burning desire to debate me. I never discuss religion or politics in any of the many classes I teach. That is a recipe for disaster, and I refuse to do it.
