What's A Libertarian?

A Libertarian believes people should have the right to live their lives in the best way they see fit, as long as that lifestyle harms no one else. We embrace the dignity and freedom of the individual and believe in voluntarism for all interactions. A core concept behind our beliefs is the Non-Aggression Principle (NAP) which states that the use of aggression - defined as the use or threatened use of physical force - to influence an individual's behavior is inherently immoral. Most Libertarian policies tie back to this core tenant. Libertarian policies include but are not limited to:

  • Free Markets
  • Free Trade
  • Individual Freedom
  • Fiscal Responsibility
  • LGBT Rights
  • Ending Corporate Welfare and Subsidies
  • Simplifying and Reducing Taxes
  • Ending Foreign Wars and Nation Building
  • Ending the War on Drugs
