Welcome to the home of the original state organization of libertarians and for libertarians - representing freedom, peace, and opportunity.

Millions of Americans have voted for libertarian candidates in past elections throughout the country, despite the fact that many state governments place roadblocks in our path to keep our candidates off the ballot and deprive voters of a real choice.

Libertarians believe the answer to America's political problems is the same commitment to freedom that earned America its greatness: a free-market economy and the abundance and prosperity it brings; a dedication to civil liberties and personal freedom; and a foreign policy of non-intervention, peace, and free trade as prescribed by America's founders.

LAMA is a member of the Association of Liberty State Parties.

  • LAMA Rejects the Betrayal of Libertarian Values by the National LP

    It is a core principle of Libertarians to oppose the initiation of violence. That is why the Libertarian Association of Massachusetts has from our beginning been part of every anti-war movement. The dilution of our anti-war stance by the national LP, yesterday, is a betrayal of Libertarian values.

    The police are killing black men. Fix it.

    With the release of the abhorrent Tyre Nichols video (which we are deliberately not linking to), showing 5 police officers beating a man in custody to death, we must ask ourselves, as a society that enables the police, some hard questions. Why are we having a hard time implementing the changes that we know will work?

  • The Myth of Gun Control: How It Fails to Keep Communities Safe

    One of the main arguments against gun control is that it does not effectively reduce crime or gun-related homicides. In fact, some studies have shown that states with strict gun control laws often have higher rates of gun-related homicides than states with more relaxed laws. For example, a study by the Crime Prevention Research Center found that states with the strictest gun control laws, such as California and New York, also had some of the highest rates of gun homicides. This suggests that stricter gun control laws do not necessarily lead to a decrease in gun-related crime.

  • Why the Left's Approach to Gun Control is Failing

    It is no secret that the issue of gun control has been a contentious topic in the United States for decades. The debate centers around the Second Amendment of the Constitution, which guarantees the right to bear arms, and the ongoing problem of gun violence in the country.

  • Breaking the Chains of Occupational Licensing: How Reform Can Create More Jobs

    Occupational licensing is a form of government regulation that requires individuals to obtain a license to legally perform certain jobs. These licenses are often expensive and time-consuming to obtain, and they can serve as barriers to entry for individuals who wish to enter a particular profession. This is especially true for low-income individuals, who may not be able to afford the costs associated with obtaining a license.

  • Probation and Parole Overhaul: How We Can Fix a Broken System

    The United States criminal justice system is in dire need of probation and parole reform. The current system, which prioritizes punishment over rehabilitation and reintegration, is not only inhumane but also ineffective in reducing recidivism and promoting public safety.
