Libertarians say stop reckless Middle East interventions, honor freedoms of innocent Muslims
It is easy to feel outrage, anger, and fear in response to the terrorist attacks in France and elsewhere. But in order to preserve life and liberty, keep America safe, and restore peace, the U.S. response must strictly honor the Bill of Rights and reverse failed policies in the Middle East.
LP to New York: Cease and desist your rigged state lottery ; leave fantasy sports alone
In the face of New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman's issuing of cease-and-desist orders to fantasy sports operators DraftKings and FanDuel, the Libertarian Party calls for the state of New York and every other state-run gambling operation to immediately shut down their immoral and hypocritical operations.
Old Parties Collude on Budget Deal to Put Americans Deeper in Debt
The White House, along with Democratic and Republican politicians in Congress, released a budget deal on October 26 that throws more cash at Big Government programs and raises the debt. It also subverts the budget caps established by the Budget Control Act of 2011 by upping them by $80 billion and by throwing an additional $59 billion into a Pentagon slush fund.
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:
Why the Republican Party is equally guilty of Obamacare; Libertarians explain
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.
But Republicans are just as much to blame for Obamacare as the president.
The Libertarian Party is America's third largest political party, founded in 1971. Our vision is for a world in which all individuals can freely exercise the natural right of sole dominion over their own lives, liberty and property by building a political party that elects Libertarians to public office, and moving public policy in a libertarian direction.
