by Nicholas Sarwark, Chair of the Libertarian National Committee (adapted from his speech at the 2018 Libertarian Party of Illinois Convention)
Politics is a contest for control. It’s control over other people. It’s government control over lives. There’s an argument between the Republicans and Democrats over which one of them get to control your life and which part of your life they get to tell you to do something with. Libertarian politics is fundamentally different from Republican and Democratic politics. We are similar to how 7 UP is the uncola – we are the anti-politics. We are about positions, not personalities. We’re about people, not politics.
What is the opposite of individual freedom? Government control. Every time you increase individual freedom, you reduce government control. Every time you pass a law and you add government control, you reduce individual freedom.
There is no other political party in this country that denies the entire Left-Right political spectrum. It’s not about which part of the life of yours that I want to control. It’s not moving Left or Right, it’s going up – more individual freedom, less government control. Every issue. Every time.
DU PAGE COUNTY 1 Should the DuPage County Election Commission be dissolved and its functions be consolidated with the office of the DuPage County Clerk?
VOTE YES! – The DuPage Libertarians support consolidating government for efficiencies, this will help reduce property taxes / curb increasing costs of government elsewhere.
CITY OF WEST CHICAGO 1 Shall Video Gaming, such as video poker and blackjack, be permitted within the corporate limits of the City of West Chicago?
VOTE YES! – This is an expansion of our freedom, this law is a small step in the right direction, it is not the government job to determine what we should be allowed or not allowed to do.
