Libertarian Party Mourns Loss of Libertarian Leader Marshall Fritz

The Libertarian Party wishes to express its condolences to the friends and family of Libertarian activist Marshall Fritz, who passed away on Nov. 4 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.

"When I think of Marshall Fritz, I immediately think of other people, because I met so many other Libertarians through Marshall, including Karl Hess and Dr. Jim Lark, at the Advocates Summit '86 in Bethesda, Maryland," says Libertarian Party National Chairman William Redpath. "That summit helped charge me up in the genesis of my becoming involved in the Libertarian Party."

Barr Says ‘This is Just the Beginning’

"This is just the beginning of the new Libertarian Party," says Bob Barr, the 2008 Libertarian Party nominee for president. "In these next four years, there will be an even greater need for a political party fully dedicated to lower taxes, smaller government and more individual freedom—a voice for liberty."

At Last, an Investigation

Sub-Title: 

by Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee Bob Barr

Federal authorities have announced that they are opening an investigation into the collapse of Washington Mutual, the largest bank failure in America. This step is long overdue, and should be the start of a much broader investigation of potential criminal behavior throughout the financial system.

I have been calling for such an investigation since the financial crisis broke publicly. It is heartening to see at least two U.S. Attorneys, as well as the Attorney General of New York, take their responsibilities seriously.

McCain-Palin: Against Energy Independence Before They Were For It, Says Bob Barr

“With the campaign moving towards its close, Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin gave a speech denouncing America’s dependence on foreign oil.  She also criticized the consequences ‘when foreign powers control our energy supplies,’ observes Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party candidate for president.  “Yet Gov. Palin backs the export of Alaskan liquefied natural gas to Asia.  That makes sense in an international market, but not when one’s official goal is energy independence.”

The Liberal Case for Bob Barr and the Libertarian Party

Barack Obama is going to win the presidency. While the end of the current era of Republican mismanagement may be good news in many respects, this is no cause for complacency for anyone concerned about American liberty and America's place in the world. Senator Obama, despite his eloquent call for reform, has demonstrated that he, like other politicians, is ever ready to trim his sails to gain a few votes. A vote for Bob Barr and the Libertarian Party would be the best way to tell President-elect Obama that the American people are serious about real change in Washington.

Republicans Accuse Democrats of “Socialism,” but Republican Bailouts-Without-End are as Big Government as it Gets

Sen. John McCain accuses Sen. Barack Obama of being a “socialist,” but it is President George W. Bush, supported by Sen. McCain, who has done the most to socialize the U.S. economy. Courtesy of the Republican Party, the federal government is set to own a sizeable chunk of the housing, auto, banking and insurance industries, as well as pieces of individual companies lining up to sell securities to Washington. Even individual homes, with Uncle Sam preparing to become the mortgage guarantor of last resort, are the targets of nationalization.

As the Election Draws Near, Americans Need to Vote for Real, Meaningful Change (In Other Words…Not for Republicans or Democrats)

The famed fat lady hasn’t sung yet, but she’s warming up. Sen. John McCain’s campaign has the feel of a farewell tour. His imminent loss gives conservatives another reason to drop the Republican Party.

The GOP long ago abandoned those who believe in limited government and individual liberty. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, the Republican Party responded to new Democratic spending initiatives with “me too.” Richard Nixon embraced and signed into law much of today’s regulatory establishment.
