Siri, what is a Libertarian?
A person who believes in the doctrine of free will.
It was 1980. Jimmy Carter was soon to leave office and Ronald Reagan would take his place at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. The economy was stagnant, except for one interesting niche: Bartering. Bartering had grown beyond an old-fashioned way of country folk trading eggs for chopping firewood or a wagon load of hay for stud services from the neighbor's bull. Nearly every Fortune 500 company had a Barter Division. It was an effective method of making sales that otherwise wouldn’t have been made.Read more

The Libertarian Party of Nevada hosted celebrities and dozens of Party members at its 2016 state convention. The convention happened simultaneously in Carson City and Las Vegas and was simulcast so members in both the northern and southern regions could participate without having to travel far.
Attendees included Libertarian Assemblyman John Moore, TV star and Libertarian candidate Dennis Hof, championship boxer Ron "the American Dream" Johnson, and several members of the Libertarian National Committee.
After the convention, Party members and supporters flocked to Satay Thai Bistro for the official after party. The after party was attended by dozens of activists and a variety of special guests, including athletes and billionaires. Best of all, Libertarian Party members everywhere had access to the after party and some HUGE announcements (see video here)!Read more

“End the drug war. The deteriorating economic conditions and the mess with immigration invite the violence of the drug lords and corrupt officials on both sides. It’s time to break up the coalition of the religious drug warriors and the drug dealers who fight any effort to decriminalize drugs. It’s time to treat all drugs the way we treat alcohol and cigarettes, substances that kill millions more than hard drugs do."

It's the end of the year. The sun rises later and sets earlier, the ground is either barren or covered in snow, the temperatures consistently dive below freezing when they can be bothered to stay above freezing at all. Ice covers our windshields, pipes occasionally freeze and crack, the passes out of town occasionally close. Though it all sounds depressing and bleak - and, sometimes, it is - it's also a necessary step toward renewal and new life. Winter brings us fresh snow, without which we don't have water for summer. Winter also kills the bugs, which is welcome once they the few stragglers from autumn stop wandering into our homes.Read more

Influential leaders throughout the Libertarian Party team up and launch caucus to build a credible and viable national party to attract new members, donors and be an alternative for voters.
The Libertarian Party of Nevada is arguably the most active state chapter of the Libertarian Party in America. I was incredibly proud to take part in this weekend’s activist training at the Libertarian Party of Nevada headquarters in Las Vegas.

If anything characterizes American politics in the days before and immediately after the Iowa Caucuses, it’s this: all emotions, no logic or reason, plenty of name calling and demagoguery. How are we different?
Supporters of the Pepsi candidate verbally abuse folks voting for the Coca-Cola candidate. Republicans accuse other Republicans of being socialists and Democrats accuse other democrats of being fascist corporate sellouts. American voters seem genuinely down in the dumps with the results from Iowa.
Frankly, this is the best news anyone could give to the Libertarian Party.Read more
