Libertarian Party responds to new Gallup Poll

For Immediate Release Tuesday, September 22, 2015

Monday, Gallup published a new poll showing that 49% of Americans think that “the federal government poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens.”

This is up from 30% in 2003.

Gallup also asked participants, “In what ways do you see the government posing an immediate threat to rights and freedoms of its citizens?”

Top responses were: too many laws/big government (19%); violations of civil liberties (15%); and violations of 2nd Amendment rights (12%).

The Libertarian Party is the only political party that cares about all rights, of all people, all of the time.

The Platform of the Libertarian Party states:

“We hold that all individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives, and have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose.”

Chairman Nicholas Sarwark says, “The Libertarian Party invites all Americans who value their liberties to join us as we seek to remove government intrusion into their lives.”
