How libertarianism can fix what's wrong with America by John Stossel

 

Most Americans used to call themselves Republican or Democrat. These days, more call themselves independent. What does that mean for American politics? A lot.

LP Executive Director in Washington Examiner

In response to a June 26 Washington Examiner editorial by Timothy Carney, LP Executive Director Wes Benedict had this to say:

Examiner Columnist Timothy Carney was a little unfair to the Libertarian Party.

Come join in the Spirit of '76

Dear Friend of Liberty:

Two hundred and thirty-five years ago, freedom-loving Americans banded together to declare their independence from the King of Great Britain, and to proclaim to the entire world that men were not meant to be slaves to their government.

Today, the Libertarian Party champions those same ideals.

In celebration of Independence Day, and the unalienable rights our Founding Fathers put their lives at risk for, we are asking for a symbolic donation of $17.76 to help continue our new American Revolution.

The Philosophy of Liberty: Plunder

from the Foundation for a Free Society

In this follow up video to The Philosophy of Liberty: Property, we explore Frederic Bastiat's concept of Legal Plunder. Is it ever OK for government to steal your stuff and give it to someone else? Or is government just a glorified organized crime syndicate a la Tony Soprano? Does it really make sense for citizens to plunder each other like competing bands of vikings?

Maryland court rules in favor of Libertarians

On June 21, a Maryland judge ruled that the Libertarian Party had submitted enough petition signatures to gain ballot access in Maryland. The state Board of Elections had previously determined that there were not enough signatures. The main issue was whether to count voters who wrote a printed name that did not perfectly match their voter registration. Read more in the Baltimore Sun.
