As Libertarians, we seek a world of liberty; a world in which all individuals are sovereign over their own lives and no one is forced to sacrifice his or her values for the benefit of others.

We believe that respect for individual rights is the essential precondition for a free and prosperous world, that force and fraud must be banished from human relationships, and that only through freedom can peace and prosperity be realized.

Consequently, we defend each person’s right to engage in any activity that is peaceful and honest, and welcome the diversity that freedom brings. The world we seek to build is one where individuals are free to follow their own dreams in their own ways, without interference from government or any authoritarian power.

In the following pages we have set forth our basic principles and enumerated various policy stands derived from those principles.

These specific policies are not our goal, however. Our goal is nothing more nor less than a world set free in our lifetime, and it is to this end that we take these stands.




SEP 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%).

Now, not all candidates who espouse the same principles as the Libertarian Party are actually registered as party members. However, one of the current crop of presidential candidates has repeatedly supported both the principles and goals described in the platform preamble. That candidate is Rand Paul.

Senator Paul is consistent (and prolific) in the art of being a peoples’ representative rather than a DC insider. Doctor Paul describes his political leanings as being in the “liberty wing’ of the Republican Party. He is not alone in that, but did you ever hear of that? No. MSM will not air that phrase.

And, as a high point for us at THEI, he wants to make the Federal Reserve accountable. Fully accountable.

Press Release from the Libertarian party: An Open Letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates (w/Video Report)

Although I worked for 52 of my 68 years and paid my taxes every one of those years I am now retired on Social Security and pay no taxes because my income is below the level. That puts me in the 47% of Americans that Republican candidate Mitt Romney is not worried about in this election, and in fact showed a high disrespect for in the comments he made when he thought he wasn’t being watched. (SEE Video at bottom of posting)

But I am also one of the 6% voting for Libertarian Candidate Gary Johnson. As the longest running third party in the Nation I see no reason why, my choice,  Governor Johnson is not allowed to be in the debates.

This is blatantly ignoring MY presidential chose by the secretive Commission on Political Debates and another proof of the Controlled Police State we live in. . . . EDITOR

Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson has filed a lawsuit to win a spot in the presidential debates that start in Denver on Oct. 3.

It’s unlikely that he will succeed, but Johnson argues that the private Commission on Presidential Debates, along with the Democratic and the Republican parties, are unfairly blocking him from participating. Only President Barack Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney are being allowed to debate. . . From the text posted with video on youtube
