The GOP is turning their backs on Judge Roy Moore, the US Senate candidate in Alabama who has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women. Republicans are scrambling to find and back a write-in candidate but we Libertarians are responding that they don’t need to. Meet Ron Bishop, the Libertarian candidate in the race. […]

Statue of Liberty


Dear Libertarian, As you know, yesterday was Election Day. Because 2017 is an odd-numbered year, there weren’t as many races going on around the country as in even-numbered years but we did have Libertarian candidates representing us in a number of partisan and non-partisan races. Sometimes it takes a few days for the final results […]

What will your Independence Day resolution be?

Dear Libertarian, Over 200 years ago, our founders had the audacity to take on the most powerful bully on the planet: King George. And, despite incredible odds, they won. But, sadly, our liberties are still at risk, every day. Today, we continue to denounce oppressive taxes, intrusive government, interventionist foreign wars, and more. On New […]
