- Our Party
Libertarian Party Chair Nicholas Sarwark released the following statement today:
Last night at the Republican National Convention, Sen. Cruz encouraged Americans to "vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution."
The Libertarian Party agrees.
Nicholas Sarwark, Chair of the Libertarian National Committee, says, "Come November, we encourage those who seek to follow their conscience, who love freedom and the Constitution, as Sen. Cruz describes, to vote Libertarian. We have candidates running for positions ranging from President to City Council."
CNN reports that Gov. Jeb Bush and Gov. Mitt Romney are considering voting for Gov. Gary Johnson, Libertarian candidate for President.
Chairman of the Libertarian National Committee, Nicholas Sarwark, says, “The Libertarian Party is delighted that Govs. Bush and Romney are considering voting for our candidates, Govs. Johnson and Weld. I think they know that Johnson and Weld are far more qualified to be president and vice president than Trump and Pence.
ALEXANDRIA, VA – Libertarian National Committee Chair Nicholas Sarwark issued this statement today in relation to the recent shootings in Louisiana, Minnesota and Texas:
The FBI has decided not to push for criminal charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server for her State Department emails.
"This is a serious miscarriage of justice," says Nicholas Sarwark, chair of the Libertarian National Committee. "One key criteria for laws to be just is that they must be applied equally to all." Countless other people who have served in roles handling classified information have been prosecuted, fined, and jailed for far lesser breaches of protocol and security.
ALEXANDRIA -- Congress has been debating the merits of adding women into Selective Service to be drafted with men during times of national emergency.
Sen. Rand Paul has suggested that it would be better to end the draft.
The Libertarian Party agrees.
"The draft is simply slavery by another name. Drafting people to go abroad and kill or be killed is barbaric and a discredit to our military and country," says Nicholas Sarwark, chair of the Libertarian National Committee.
ALEXANDRIA — The Libertarian Party opposes the No Fly List, "no buy" lists, and other such lists where the government infringes on a person's rights without due process of law.
In recent years, the federal government has used "the war on terror" as an excuse to encroach on our most fundamental human rights.
Warrant-less wiretapping, detaining prisoners for years without trials in Guantanamo Bay, "no fly" lists that are compiled secretly and without due process, and similar "no buy" lists all violate the human rights of Americans and non-Americans alike.
