Pledge Proposals

Current LP Pledge

I oppose the initiation of force to achieve political or social goals.

[No Pledge is mentioned in the original 1972 LP Constitution, Bylaws, and Convention Rules, but it was reportedly being required of new members as early as 1973.]

2008 Bylaws Committee Proposal

[Require the pledge only of voting members; i.e. delegates and officers.]

Proposal by Brian Holtz

The Libertarian Party will always advocate increasing liberty and decreasing aggression on every issue. As a member of the Libertarian Party, I will not attempt to change this.

Another Proposal by Brian Holtz

I support the Libertarian Party's goal of banishing force initiation and fraud from human relationships.

Proposal by Stewart Flood: The LPSC Pledge

I support the Libertarian Party's principle of limiting government to the protection of each person's right to life, liberty, and property.

Proposal by Chuck Moulton

As a candidate or party officer of the Libertarian Party, I will work to move public policy in a libertarian direction.
