Special Guests

2020 Vice Presidential Candidate

Spike Cohen

Founder – You Are The Power

Spike Cohen is a successful business owner, Libertarian activist, and media figure. As the 2020 Libertarian Party candidate for Vice President, coming in third place in the 2020 election, Spike traveled across the nation by plane and bus and met tens of thousands of Americans to share the message of Liberty with them.

Spike started a web design company as a teenager in 1998. In 2017, he retired from web design to focus on Libertarian messaging, entertainment, and activism. This culminated with him becoming the co-owner of Muddied Waters Media, the co-host of The Muddied Waters of Freedom, and the host of My Fellow Americans.

Spike is a tireless advocate for freedom with a commitment to help grow the movement at the grassroots level, training Libertarian Party candidates and activists in positive and principled messaging to explain high concept libertarian ideas to everyday Americans, and working towards the Libertarian Party’s goal of “a world set free in our lifetime.”

Since the 2020 election, Spike has become a regular guest on cable news networks, nationally syndicated radio, international media outlets, and podcasts across the globe.
