1. The Libertarian Party is working to dramatically reduce Big Government spending, taxes, debt, regulations, bureaucracies, foreign meddling, and invasions of our personal freedoms.
Not “reform” them. Not “replace” them. Certainly not add to them. That’s what Democrats and Republicans do.
The Libertarian Party and its candidates are working to repeal laws and shrink Big Government. What will this leave? Individual liberty and a small, constitutional government that is limited to defending our lives, liberty and property.
2. The Libertarian Party walks the talk. We actively work to reduce Big Government.
Not just analyze what’s wrong with Big Government. Not just report on abuses and expansions of Big Government. Our party and our candidates take direct action to make government smaller than it is today through elections. We’re serious about changing government policy in America.
3. The Libertarian Party is consistent and principled.
Libertarians work for everyday taxpayers, workers and voters. Not for Special Interests. Not to be part of the machinery of Big Government. Not to get government jobs. Not to grab “our share” of the goodies.
We exist to make government small, allow free markets to thrive, uphold and expand personal liberties and keep our nation at peace.
4. Libertarian candidates take liberty all the way to the General Election.
Both Republicans and Democrats work against and defeat their own liberty candidates in primary elections.
This was on display at the 2012 Republican national convention where party operatives bent the rules to deny Ron Paul delegates their hard-earned right to nominate their candidate from the floor.
In contrast, the Libertarian Party recruits and encourages candidates who will work to advance liberty. As a result, most Libertarian candidates win their primaries and go on to challenge Big Government in the general election – when voters are listening.
5. Without the Libertarian Party, the pro-freedom activists in the two old parties stand no chance.
The Libertarian Party gives liberty lovers working within the Democratic and Republican Parties the competitive force they need to effect change. Neither of the two old parties will budge without the threat of a small-government competitor.
6. The Libertarian Party is the greatest liberty recruiter and educator in America. Every election year.
The Libertarian Party is the premiere political organization in America for going well beyond “preaching to the choir” and awakening ordinary Americans to the blessings of liberty.
Libertarian candidates reach everyday voters and taxpayers. We show them how low taxes, dramatically reduced government spending and much less government authority will make life better.
Polls show that Libertarians attract voters who don’t usually vote. In 2012, over 15 million votes were cast for Libertarian candidates.
7. The Libertarian Party is the best-leveraged liberty investment in America.
In addition to providing all the above benefits at a bargain price, the Libertarian Party is the most efficient and effective alternative party to the Democrat and Republicans.
Ballot access is the key to legitimacy in elections and to challenging the Big Government status quo. For decades, the Libertarian Party has jumped through hoops to place more candidates on the ballot in more states and at the lowest average cost of any political party in America. Highly cost-effective activism for liberty.
