Platform Portal 2008

44% of Americans agree when asked if they consider themselves "fiscally conservative and socially liberal, also known as libertarian".

The LP should unite all the voters who seek both more personal liberty and more economic liberty behind the choices available to them (or their representatives) that will most move public policy in a libertarian direction.

LP Adopts Pure Principles Platform

On May 24, 2008, the Libertarian Party adopted a rewritten Platform. This version is color-coded to show how most of its text was recycled from previous platforms.

A Pure Principles Platform

At its Feb 15-16 meeting in Las Vegas, the LP Platform Committee recommended a "Pure Principles" platform that recyles the best proclamations of Libertarian principle from previous LP platforms to eloquently and elegantly describe what the Bylaws mean by "a libertarian direction" in public policy, stating for each issue a timeless principle that is consistent with both incremental reform and radical ultimate goals.
