The Libertarian Party (LP) is your representative in American politics. It is the only political organization which respects you as a unique and responsible individual.
Our slogan is that we are “The Party of Principle”, because we stand firmly on our principles.
Libertarians strongly oppose any government interference into their personal, family, and business decisions. Essentially, we believe all Americans should be free to live their lives and pursue their interests as they see fit as long as they do no harm to another.
Founded in 1971, we run many hundred of candidates every election cycle. These candidates seek positions ranging from City Council to President of the United States. Each of these candidates helps to give liberty a voice.
Libertarianism is a logically consistent approach to politics. It is based on the principle of self-ownership. Each individual has the right to control his or her own body, action, speech, and property.
Are Libertarians liberal or conservative?
Libertarians are neither. Unlike liberals or conservatives, Libertarians advocate a high degree of both personal and economic liberty.
Libertarians advocate freedom in economic matters, so we’re in favor of lowering and eliminating taxes, slashing bureaucratic regulation of business, and charitable rather than government welfare.
Libertarians are also socially inclusive. We think each person should be free to make their own choices so long as they do not infringe on others’ rights. We oppose laws that seek to control people’s personal choices.
Consider voting Libertarian and joining the Libertarian Party because:
- We seek to substantially reduce the size and intrusiveness of government and cut and eliminate taxes at every opportunity.
- We believe that peaceful, honest people should be able to offer their goods and services to willing consumers without inappropriate interference from government.
- We believe that peaceful, honest people should decide for themselves how to live their lives, without fear of criminal or civil penalties.
- We believe that government’s only responsibility, if any, should be protecting people from force and fraud.
You can become a Libertarian by affirming that you oppose the use of force to achieve political goals.
I joined the National party way back in 1998 because I was attracted to the party principles and felt left out by other major parties. Last year I was appointed chairman of the newly founded Pearl River County Libertarian party. This year at the state convention I was elected to the state executive board with an at large position. I have been assigned to run the candidate support committee and will be assisting anyone who wants to run as a Libertarian in the state. Our party is growing and this is an exciting time to be a Libertarian in Mississippi!
