how we fight

We are leaders in identifying and exposing unique issues from the limited government perspective, and working with Congress and state legislatures to prevent the continued expansion of government.

This aggressive, non-partisan approach to the threats posed by an ever expanding government to our basic freedoms gives us the ability to honestly present the limited government perspective both inside the beltway and most importantly around the country.

Richard McCarty, Director of Research

For the past several years, Richard has researched labor and green energy policy.

Our focus

We focus on fiscal responsibility, regulatory reform, transparency and shedding light on overlooked issues that impact people’s lives.  As a principled and independent organization, we hold both sides of the aisle accountable.  Although Americans for Limited Government Research Foundation is modest in size, it punches above its weight.  Its influence can be seen in numerous pieces of legislation and its broad media coverage.
