Attorney Bruce Fein is interviewed after filing lawsuit at U.S. District Courthouse.
Monday, Gallup published a new poll showing that 49% of Americans think that "the federal government poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens."
This is up from 30% in 2003.
Gallup also asked participants, "In what ways do you see the government posing an immediate threat to rights and freedoms of its citizens?"
No hair jokes, just issues.
Nicholas Sarwark, Chair of the Libertarian National Committee issued the following statement:
Libertarianism is the idea that you have the right to pursue happiness in any way you wish as long as it doesn't hurt people or take their stuff. We support the fundamental rights of all people, all of the time. We do not denigrate or disparage any group. We respect the humanity of all people.
The Libertarian Party applauds the efforts of Campaign Zero to go beyond merely protesting the injustices perpetrated by law enforcement on citizens of the United States to proposing specific, well thought-through changes in government policy. They include:
Republican politicians and their allies are wailing over the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling which affirmed provisions of Obamacare, blaming the president for the onerous, 17,000-page body of law that is driving up the cost of health insurance premiums and reducing health care access for Americans.

Libertarian Party four-decade advocacy for marriage equality pays off with US Supreme Court decision
In a 5-4 ruling today, the US Supreme Court held that the Fourteenth Amendment requires states to license same-sex marriage and recognize those marriages entered into in other states.
Libertarian candidates, including the party’s 1976 presidential nominee, Roger MacBride, have been bravely calling for marriage equality since long before it was politically correct. In fact, they’ve been doing so when it was considered downright dangerous.
The Libertarian Party joined Level the Playing Field, the successor group to Americans Elect, and the Green Party to file a lawsuit aimed at the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), a Democratic- and Republican-run agency that sets rules designed to exclude third parties and independents from presidential debates.
The lawsuit is filed against the Federal Election Commission (FEC), which is also run by Democrats and Republicans and which refuses to enforce laws that the CPD is blatantly violating.
Secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership trade bill lets foreign governments and foreign special interests control American medical care, banking, the Internet, and even civil liberties
Republicans howled when Nancy Pelosi famously said, “We have to pass [Obamacare] so that you can find out what is in it." Now GOP lawmakers, who control the U.S. House, are following suit in their passage of a new Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade bill.
