The Libertarian Party is America's best choice for government. Like you, we have jobs, businesses, families, and dreams. We've entered the political arena to restore liberty and American values. We're working toward a government that taxes and spends less and won't interfere with your personal life.
If you describe yourself as socially tolerant and fiscally responsible, you're a Libertarian!
We believe that you, not the government, should decide how to run your life, checkbook, retirement, education, and family.
The Libertarian Party supports your right to:
- Keep what you earn. Reduce or eliminate taxes whenever possible.
- Run your own business and enjoy your property. Reducing regulations and paperwork creates more jobs, higher pay, and lower prices.
- Educate your children as you see fit.
- Choose your own lifestyle. The government shouldn't consider you a criminal because of your choices in relationships, recreation, or medical treatment.
- Truly equal treatment under the law regardless of race, gender, religion, sexuality, or personal characteristics.
- Own a firearm. Self-defense is a right, not a political favor.
We're the third largest political party in the U.S. with more party members in elected offices than all other minor parties combined. Join us today!

The American Independent Party is the party of ordered liberty in a nation under God. We believe in strict adherence to written law. We believe the Constitution is the contract America has with itself. Its willful distortion has led to the violation of our Tenth-Amendment-guaranteed right to limited government—which inevitably requires oppressive taxation. Its application will lift that burden.
Freed from the lawless oppression of Liberal rule we may then compassionately and justly use our energy and ingenuity to provide for ourselves and our families. We will then establish truly free and responsible enterprise and reassert the basic human right to property.
We believe in protecting all human life however weak, defenseless, or disheartened; endorse the family as the essential bulwark of liberty, compassion, responsibility, and industry; and declare the family's right and responsibility to nurture, discipline, and educate their children.
We assert the absolute, concurrent Second-Amendment-guaranteed right of individuals to self-defense coupled with a strong common defense, a common defense which requires a national sovereignty not damaged by imprudent treaties. We oppose all illegal immigration. We support secure borders and immigration policies that invite the best of the world to join us in freedom.

With Iraq in a quagmire and the economy hurting, led by the housing crisis, America needs change.
After our primary, Democrats and Independents must rally around our nominee to ensure the change we need.
Democrats have long fought to create a vibrant economy, improve education, ensure public safety and national security, expand access to health care, and help the struggling middle class.
Democratic accomplishments and priorities under House Speaker Nancy Pelosi include:
- First minimum wage increase in 10 years
- Education reform to ensure America leads the world in research and technology
- A military pay raise
- New quality care standards for wounded troops and veterans
- 50,000 new police officers
- Tough rules to establish highest ethical standards in Congressional history
- Responsible economic stimulation and job security for working Americans
- A woman's right to choose
- Protection of Social Security and Medicare
- An end to the war in Iraq
- Greater energy independence
