    Glen Beck - Surprising such a conservative voice would be on CNN, but this guy has a lot of interesting things to say about political candidates, border issues, freedom in America, and more. It was after I grew to like him that I found out he is Mormon.
    Human Events Online
    Liberty Counsel
    Michelle Malkin
    Moore Lies
    Moore Watch

    The New Media Journal - This is an independent, conservative-leaning site that gathers news and opinions from around the web. But I hesitate to call it a news site, because they have a writing staff and post their own editorials.
    No Agenda.org
    Political Party Poop - Blog-format conservative site that is happy to take aim at liberals and their inconsistencies. Very forceful assertions against the Left, but also does criticize the Right.

    RIAA, MPAA, Intellectual Property, P2P
    9 Down

    Chilling Effects - Site that helps you know your online rights. Superb information.
    Cool P2P Software - List of P2P software, including some "darknet" (or anonymous) ones.
    Creative Commons - A way to find pictures, sounds, text and video files, but I'm all are legally free. Not just a way to find free content, but also a way of life (or at least a way to share your work with others in a free way). You've heard of copyright. This is copyleft.
    Doom 9
    Downhill Battle - To quote the site, "Downhill Battle is a non-profit organization working to support participatory culture and build a fairer music industry." Lots of info and ways to to get involved.
    DRM Trainwrecks - Del.icio.us links to pages exemplifying why DRM is not good for the end user.
    File Sharing Place (and torrent searcher)
    Free Network Project - Strictly speaking, not a traditional P2P project. This is more about building an anonymous and scalable network that allows anyone to publish anything. I see this as the best hope of keeping the internet free (and freedom of speech available), if our government (USA) continues to strip away our rights.
    eBook Share - ebook torrent site. Mostly tech books.
    Info Anarchy
    Infringement FAQ - Common questions answered by Phoenix Labs for people worried about being accused of copyright infringement.

    Public Domain Torrents - For those who don't mind older movies and such, this site is a directory of films that have gone into the public domain. They are downloadable with a bit torrent client. These are usuall fast downloads, despite the size of the file. However, broadband is the best way to go. Interesting choices available for those who are interested.

    Recording Industry vs. the People - Written on a blog, this site has tons of information about . . . well, the recording industry and their lack of respect for their customers.
    Respect Copyrights
    RIAA Radar
    R.I.G.H.T.S - Stands for Redistribution in Graphics Has Got To Stop. This is not a group, but a site with which to educate one's self about copyright law and respecting the works of others. Focuses on graphics, but can be applicable in many other ways.
    Should Exist
    Torrent Scan - Search multiple torrent search sites from one location.
