Welcome to the Libertarian Party of Los Angeles County - a group of people who support liberty, limited government, and capitalism. Our goal is to protect your freedoms. We can do it, but it will be accomplished more quickly with your help. So please join us in the fight for your liberty. If you decide the Libertarian Party is the party for you, then please join, and register to vote libertarian. If you have the time, come to our meetings and get involved.

The Librrertarian Party supports a new idea, the idea that human liberty is the answer to the pursuit of happiness for all humankind. This new idea of the enlightenment contradicted the age-old view that government must control and manage people for the greater good, and that striving for individual happiness is immoral.

What is a libertarian?

We, the members of the Libertarian Party, challenge the cult of the omnipotent state and defend the rights of the individual. We hold that all individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives, and have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose. Governments throughout history have regularly operated on the opposite principle, that the State has the right to dispose of the lives of individuals and the fruits of their labor. Even within the United States, all political parties other than our own grant to government the right to regulate the lives of individuals and seize the fruits of their labor without their consent.

We, on the contrary, deny the right of any government to do these things, and hold that where governments exist, they must not violate the rights of any individual: namely, (1) the right to life—accordingly we support the prohibition of the initiation of physical force against others; (2) the right to liberty of speech and action—accordingly we oppose all attempts by government to abridge the freedom of speech and press, as well as government censorship in any form; and (3) the right to property—accordingly we oppose all government interference with private property, such as confiscation, nationalization, and eminent domain, and support the prohibition of robbery, trespass, fraud, and misrepresentation.

Since governments, when instituted, must not violate individual rights, we oppose all interference by government in the areas of voluntary and contractual relations among individuals. People should not be forced to sacrifice their lives and property for the benefit of others. They should be left free by government to deal with one another as free traders; and the resultant economic system, the only one compatible with the protection of individual rights, is the free market.

6 Should libertarians support full body scans as a requirement for flying? Assume we had a fully private security system with no TSA but with each airline providing its own security. Given the choice of one airline requiring no body scans and another insisting on full body scans, which would you choose? It is an issue of privacy versus safety.
