John Odermatt, otherwise known as Odie, developed an interest in politics and economics at a young age. In 2007, John’s eyes were opened when a fellow contributor to Lions of Liberty, Marc Clair, introduced him to a unique Republican, Congressman Ron Paul. Ever since then, a significant amount of his free time has been dedicated to reading and studying the ideals of liberty. When John is not fervently defending liberty, he earns a living working in project controls for an engineering company. John is the host and producer of “Finding Freedom” on the Lions of Liberty Network, which takes a deep look at the problems within the criminal justice system.
