About The Libertarian Party

Formed in 1971, the Libertarian Party affirms that American citizens have the liberty to run their own lives and businesses, free from Government intervention, interference, assistance to special groups, and restrictive laws that adversely negate competitive forces in a free market, Capitalist economy that is based on mutual consent and exchange of goods and services. Libertarians trust the individual to do what's right in his own interests.

 

Government has pushed many beyond their limits. Frustrated with restrictions, we become involved, politically active, personally invested in taking back control of our lives. It's time to be relevant again. It's time to impact our destiny, to raise our voices as any patriot would against a coercive and intrusive government to demand reinstatement of our human right to liberty.


Now is the time to join the Libertarian Party.

 

I hope to provide a regular report on my activities in support of the Libertarian Party, including volunteer work (creating flyers, helping with mailings, writing newsletter articles, etc.), attending conventions, voting in local elections, and lobbying. Additionally, I’ll be recording my thoughts about major issues of the day. My positions on issues will have a Libertarian and Objectivist, or Rationalist, slant. Conservatives are likely to disagree with the content of my essays because I advocate fewer laws, and Liberals may drum up a number of tired arguments about why personal responsibility works only in theory. I welcome all expression of dissent.

I am not a credentialed reporter, nor a seasoned blogger. I have never been politically involved. I have few expectations about how mentoring in a grassroots political campaign should work. I'm sure I'll have criticisms, that I'll say things that will be mistakes and will be outright factually wrong. Most of my views tend to be negative reactions to liberty-constrictive conditions and laws, making me sound like a major complainer, but I hope entertainingly so, with a dash of enlightenment. But I'm honest and hope to learn and pass my experiences on to others who are interested in learning.

I hope that people from all political spectrums come to  embrace the value of self-sufficiency in daily life. Click the Topics link in the side menu to read areas of interest.
