LP Executive Director Wes Benedict was interviewed recently by Truthout about the role of the Libertarian Party.
Wes Benedict, executive director of the Washington, DC-based Libertarian Party, says the Libertarian anti-war ticket is essential to kindling interest from both sides of the aisle. According to Benedict, the Libertarian Party has filled the vacuum on both the right and the left - the record of both the Democrats and the Republicans on taxation, the military and civil liberties has pushed individuals who "stand for more freedom, less government" to his party.
