The Libertarian Party is the party of principle. To
publicly affirm what we believe -- and to ensure that our party
never strays from our principles -- we ask our members to proudly
sign this statement:
Begin to learn more about the Libertarian Party from our Introduction.
I do not believe in or advocate the initiation of force as
a means of achieving political or social goals.
- The basic political philosophy of the Libertarian Party is
stated in its Statement
- The elaboration of these principles into positions on a wide
range of specific issues is contained in our comprehensive Platform.
The LP Program
is a statement of the Party's legislative recommendations on
several issues of current concern.
In presidential election years, the convention adopts the National
Campaign Platform of its presidential candidate.
Other official LP positions are stated in the form of resolutions
adopted by the LNC
(Libertarian National Committee).
The views of LP spokespersons are expressed in our press
releases. The Press
Release Archive is useful in locating specific resolutions and
