Libertarian Party opposes further intervention in Iraq

In February 2003, the Libertarian Party (LP) issued an article titled "10 reasons why the USA should not attack Iraq."

The article began by saying, "... there's only one valid reason for the United States to go to war: Self-defense."

Geoffrey Neale, LP national chairman, commented, "Unfortunately, the U.S. government ignored that principle, and engaged in 'preventive war' against Iraq. Many times since then, the Libertarian Party has criticized that decision."

Neale also served as the LP national chairman in 2003.

A Libertarian song for the tax filing blues

It's springtime! So many great things to do. Going to festivals. Watching kids play ball. Breathing in the sweet smell of flowers blooming.

But wait ...

Many of us miss out on these pleasures because we're inside searching for receipts, toiling over tax forms, and scrambling to find an accountant.
