Robert LeFevre (1911–1986) was an American libertarian, businessman, radio personality and primary theorist of autarchism.
- The bill of grievances contained in the immortal Declaration of Independence could be extended by our own citizens in modern times, had they the stomach for it. … So important is the right and duty of the people to dispense with despotism, this great Declaration contains the sentence not once, but twice.
