Leadership

“Be the change you wish to see”

Mahatma Gandhi

The staff of Liberty For All Action Fund is dedicated to serving as agents of change, not just through our organization, but also through our daily lives. In addition to our involvement with the action fund, every one of our staff serves as an active member of their community and donates their time to a variety of local causes and charitable organizations.

John Ramsey — Co-Founder, Chairman

John Ramsey is an angel investor and venture capitalist from Austin, Texas. He is motivated by the belief that America can still be a leader in entrepreneurship and pioneers in all fields. He got into activism after his businesses were attacked by hostile bureaucrats and chummy lobbyists who want to defend the status quo.

Though his background is more closely associated with angel investing and start-up ventures instead of politics, he discovered an investment he really liked: building a national, pro-liberty grassroots organization to stand up to Washington DC insiders.

Liberty For All was birthed with the belief that our best days lie ahead; that greater wealth, peace, and is destiny of us and for us all. Liberty For All Action Fund advances that missions through electoral victory at all levels and all across the nation.

After many years of mentorship under his grandfather’s wing, along with a growing distaste for the insider dominated financial markets, John found his passion in value adding, small business ventures. With time and after becoming frustrated with the growing number of difficulties faced by small business owners, John became fascinated by entrepreneurship and innovation.

With ventures in technology, oil and gas, agriculture, real estate, education, consumer products and entertainment, John now spends most of his time empowering disruptive entrepreneurs with his investment firm; Seedcess Investment Group.  The name “Seedcess” was derived from John’s philosophical approach to investing, which is consistent with Robert Louis Stevenson’s famous quote: “Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.” Along with his investment and political activity, John is involved in various charitable and non-profit organizations, all of which are designed to promote liberty, freedom, peace and prosperity.

James Benefico — Co-Founder

James is the Co-Founder of Liberty for All and the CEO and Founder of Organic Muscle Inc. James is a proponent of free market economics, expansive civil liberties, and disruptive entrepreneurship.

A graduate of the University of Connecticut, James currently resides in Dallas, Texas. Ramsey and Benefico founded the nutritional supplement company Organic Muscle in 2014, and it continues to grow and prosper to this day. Specializing in certified organic protein powders and fitness supplements, Organic Muscle is dominating the organic supplement market.
