What Is The Montana Libertarian Party?
The Libertarian Party is your representative in American politics. It is the only political organization which respects you as a unique and competent individual.
The Montana Libertarian Party is the real choice for less government, lower taxes, and more freedom. The Libertarian Party believes in both economic and personal freedom. We believe people should be free to make their own choices, provided they don't infringe on the equal right of others to do the same. Government's role should be to protect an individual's right to make their own choices in life, so they can reap the rewards of their successes and bear personal responsibility for their decisions.
America's Third Largest Party
The Libertarian Party is America's third largest and fastest growing political party. Libertarians engage in a variety of projects, working for everyone's liberty on every issue.
The Libertarian Party was created in December of 1971 by people who realized that the politicians had strayed from America's original libertarian foundation with disastrous results. Their vision was the same as that of America's founders — a world where individuals are free to follow their own dreams in their own ways, a world of peace, harmony, opportunity, and abundance.
Libertarians are practical; we know we can't make the world perfect. But, it can be better. Libertarians will keep working to create a better, freer society for everyone. As William Allen White said: "Liberty is the only thing you cannot have unless you are willing to give it to others."
What Americans Want
Americans want, and deserve, a political system which respects them as unique individuals; as people who can make their own plans, who can take responsibility for themselves, who are compassionate, and who can and will solve their own problems if allowed to do so.
Most Americans, after some thought, prefer the Libertarian option in politics. Most people in their private, non-governmental affairs deal with each other on the libertarian premise of mutual respect. You don't threaten your neighbors with fines or jail just because they choose careers or lifestyles different than yours.
Let's hold government to the same standard. Protect us and our rights, and give us the respect we deserve.
Why Not Stick with The Establishment?
"Given the low level of competence among politicians, every American should become a Libertarian."
— Charley Reese, Alameda Times-Star (California), June 17, 2003
The politicians in Washington and our state capitals have led us away from the principles of individual liberty and personal responsibility which are the only sound foundation for a just, humane, and abundant society.
Government at all levels is too large, too expensive, woefully inefficient, arrogant, intrusive, and downright dangerous. Democratic and Republican politicians have created the status quo and do not intend to change it.
Are You Ready for a Change in American Politics?
We believe the American people have seen through the charade of big government. The American people are ready for a fresh approach to the problems that plague us. Libertarian ideas were instrumental in the birth of our country, and they can inspire a return to the individual initiative, responsibility, and prosperity that were once part of the American dream. If you agree, join us, and help make a difference in American politics.
Time for Action
We hope you can see the benefits of living in that America envisioned by the founders and by their political heirs, today's Libertarians. Now is the time to join the Libertarian Party and become involved in our many activities at the national, state, and local levels.
