Our Thoughts and Prayers are With the Victims

The Libertarian Party of Maine sends our deepest condolences to everyone affected by the tragic violence in Las Vegas. We ask that we all put aside our differences at this time and join together as Americans to support those most directly impacted by this horrific act. We keep all of those affected by this tragedy in our thoughts and prayers.

Clark Phinney

Chair, Libertarian Party of Maine

The Libertarian Party of Maine is pleased to announce that Androscoggin  County Commissioner Zakk Maher has formally enrolled in the Libertarian Party.  In doing so, he becomes Maine's first elected Libertarian in a partisan position.  In his official release Mr. Maher cited "a platform that respects the sovereignty of the individual in all matters of life, love and morality."  We are proud to welcome him as our newest member and look forward to his voice and experience as we work to move Maine forward.  The full text of his official release can be found here.

The Libertarian Party is the third largest party in the United States and is the fourth officially recognized party in Maine.  Founded on the core tenets of individual sovereignty and an adherence to the non-aggression principle, it is the fastest growing party in the nation.  September is national #ReRegister month where we encourage people to officially join us by changing their voter registration to Libertarian, thus helping to secure ballot access and official recognition.

Mainers Deserve Better

Our state government shutdown is being lauded in some circles, but it is not a cause for celebration.  It’s further proof that our system is broken.  In six months our current legislature has not been able to craft a budget they can agree on.  They talk about problems that need to be addressed—very real problems in education, our aging population, immigration, and land conservation.  However, all this talk focuses on how much money can be raised or spent and which groups should and should not be taxed, not on achieving outcomes that would improve the lives of the average Mainer.
