The LIBERTARIAN PARTY is
the Party of Principle.
Where the two old parties offer fear, mutual slander and individual self-destruction, Libertarians share our commitment to rigorous financial integrity, peaceful social acceptance and individual personal liberty.
Now is the time to VOTE out of LOVE for the PRINCIPLES you know to be true:
free agency, self-ownership, non-initiation of aggression
and not in reaction to what you fear.
This is a principled campaign.

My job is not to win; my job is to be right about the issues.
Whether I win this election or not is up to you!
The price of Liberty is eternal vigilance.
Taxation is theft.
Self-ownership means you own your physical body; you choose what's best for you.
Non-aggression means you don't hit others, or take their stuff or put them at risk - you don't drive a car drunk, or high or overly tired.
Legalize every drug for end-of-life care, for our PTSD suffering veterans, and therapeutic cannabis (medical marijuana) for epilepsy, cancer and where efficacious.
Non Aggression, Radical Voluntaryism, Peace.
