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.
