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.

- Preamble to the National Libertarian Party Platform

Non-Aggression

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.

Property Rights

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.


Self-Ownership

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.

Individual Liberty

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.
