The most basic principle of the Libertarian Party is that you should never use violence or the threat of violence.
Force is only justified when necessary for self defense.
This principle applies to individuals, groups, and governments.
You have the right to the fruits of your labor and your justly aquired property.
We oppose all government interference with private property, such as confiscation, nationalization, and eminent domain, and support the prohibition of robbery, trespass, fraud, and misrepresentation.
You own yourself. No one has a higher claim to your life than you and no one can run your life better than you.
Libertarians believe that no government or collective should interfere with your life as long as you\'re not infringing on the rights of others.
The Libertarian Party believes that no group or government has more rights than any individual.
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.
