Libertarians versus Donald Trump

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.

School Shopping

Students have returned to class, and another back-to-school shopping season has come to an end. While parents have nearly endless choices to be made on school supplies, clothing, etc. the most important aspect of going back to school is still not a choice for most families – which school their child will attend.

Libertarians in Minneapolis have had enough of the bans! In an appeal sent to LPMN members and supporters in the city last week, residents were encouraged to contact the city councillors in their wards to ask them to support freedom of consumer choice by voting against a proposal to criminalize plastic bags. As a result, the City Council did not vote on the proposal last week as had been expected.

Why Are Libertarians Different? Intent vs. Outcome

We may look the same. We may use the same language. We put our pants on one leg at a time. Most of us, anyway. We certainly have a unique way of thinking though. Of course, our first instinct is not to suggest that “there ought to be a law.” That is the beginning of how we differ from non-libertarians.

A Vision for the Libertarian Party

Although it's difficult for many libertarian to accept, in order to win elections we need to win the votes of non-libertarians. And in order to do that, we must demonstrate to them that we can govern effectively, even while reducing government.

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 for Americans. But Republicans are just as much to blame for Obamacare as the president.
