LP Chair Nicholas Sarwark

Afghanistan and NATO

Dear Libertarian, You have probably heard the news about the President’s plan to increase American military involvement in Afghanistan. The Libertarian perspective is very different.

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 […]

Preserving our history

Dear Libertarian, Our party is growing and I am thrilled to help welcome so many “newborn Libertarians”. But, as we grow and move towards our future, we MUST know our past, and we are in serious danger of losing it. Many of the original delegates and liberty-fighters that started this party have passed away and […]
