About

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 Dangers of Overreaching Government: Lessons from History

    The concept of limited government is a cornerstone of classical liberalism and libertarian conservatism. It is based on the idea that government power should be limited to prevent the abuse of power and protect individual freedom. However, throughout history, governments have repeatedly overreached their power, leading to disastrous consequences. This article will explore the dangers of overreaching government and draw lessons from history to illustrate why limited government is crucial for a prosperous and free society.

    One of the main dangers of overreaching government is the potential for the abuse of power. When government has too much power, there is a risk that it will use that power to further its own interests or the interests of select groups, rather than acting in the best interests of the people it is supposed to serve. This can lead to corruption, injustice, and inequality, with those in positions of power using their authority to enrich themselves and their allies at the expense of everyone else.

  • The Future of Free Speech on Campus: An Analysis of Current Trends and Emerging Issues

    In recent years, debates around free speech on college campuses have gained significant attention, as campuses have become the epicenter for discussions around social and political issues. On the one hand, the First Amendment of the US Constitution protects free speech, including unpopular and offensive speech. However, on the other hand, the pursuit of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) has emerged as a core value for many colleges and universities.

    The tension between free speech and DEI has led to a variety of controversies on college campuses, with some students and faculty arguing that certain forms of speech are harmful and should be restricted. Examples include hate speech, which targets individuals based on their race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or sexual orientation, as well as speech that perpetuates stereotypes or reinforces systemic oppression.

  • The Role of Social Media in US Politics: Pros and Cons of Digital Democracy.

    Social media has transformed the way that political campaigns are conducted, providing a new platform for candidates to connect with potential voters, and for voters to engage more deeply with the political process. In recent years, social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube have become a vital tool for political candidates and parties, providing them with the ability to reach out to large numbers of people in a relatively short amount of time.

    One of the most significant benefits of social media for politics is the democratization of the political process. With social media, it is now possible for candidates to reach a much wider audience than ever before, regardless of their political affiliation or financial resources. Social media enables political candidates to bypass traditional media gatekeepers and communicate directly with potential voters, offering a new level of transparency and accessibility that was previously unavailable.
