Let's start with Webster's definition:
libertarian: A person who upholds the principles of individual liberty especially of thought and action.
Libertarians believe in, and pursue, personal freedom while maintaining personal responsibility. The Libertarian Party itself serves a much larger pro-liberty community with the specific mission of electing Libertarians to public office.
Libertarians strongly oppose any government interfering in their personal, family and business decisions.
In a nutshell, we are advocates for a smaller government, lower taxes and more freedom.
It's fitting that they were founded the year I was born.
I'm so flabbergasted by what is going on in the government right now that I'll refrain from commenting at this time.
