As Libertarians, we believe that each individual should be able to live their lives however they choose, and earn or spend their own money however they choose, so long as they don't infringe upon the equal right of others to do the same. We strongly support individual liberty, voluntary interaction, a genuinely free marketplace, and peace.
We believe that, at most, governments should exist only to defend and protect the rights and freedoms of individuals. These include the right to free speech and freedom of association, the freedom of religion, the right to privacy, the right of self-defense, the right to own justly-acquired property, the right to keep the earnings from our labor, and the right to engage in voluntary arrangements with other individuals. We believe that people will be happier and more secure when they can exercise choice in their lives and earn their living without unnecessary interference from government. It is our goal that society become more peaceful and prosperous without the strife that arises when some try to control others by using the force of government. We understand that in order to have freedom for ourselves, we must be willing to stand up for the freedom of our neighbors as well. We believe that the initiation of force or fraud is wrong in all cases, even when undertaken by the government.
We welcome you to libertarianism, the only philosophical and political movement which supports your freedom on all issues, all the time!
