About

Welcome to the home of the state affiliate of the Libertarian Party - America's Third Largest Political Party! Join the Libertarians, the party of freedom, peace, and opportunity.

Millions of Americans have voted for Libertarian Party 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.

What began with a small group of activists in Colorado has become America's third largest political party. We are the only political organization which respects you as a unique and competent individual.

    LAMA Chair Marc Mercier on National Gun Violence

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

    The Libertarian Association of Massachusetts unreservedly condemns any form of violence. As Libertarians, we adhere to the Non-aggression Principle, which advocates that persons may not initiate force, or the threat of force, against another or another’s property. We believe, as all good people believe, that each person has an inherent right to be secure in their persons and possessions.

    With compassion and comfort, we offer our deepest condolences to the victims, as well as their friends and families, who have suffered at the hands of the disturbed offenders committing these reprehensible acts.

    LPMA Chair Lyons comments on Bob Kraft arrest

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE            
    Libertarian Party of Massachusetts

    Jeff Lyons, Chairman

    Upon learning that Robert Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots had been charged for soliciting prostitution in a massage parlor in Jupiter Florida, Jeff Lyons, Chair of the Libertarian Party of Massachusetts issued the following statement:


    "The Libertarian Party has always asserted that consenting adults should be able to exchange whatever goods and services they wish, so long as both parties willingly agree to the terms. It should be pointed out that had Robert Kraft been in Nevada, this would have been a legal activity.

    "The Libertarian Party of Massachusetts believes that human sex trafficking is a serious crime, and the organizers of such crimes should be targeted, not consenting adults engaged in a commercial transaction.

    "The government should not be seeking to restrict commerce, nor should it pass a moral judgement on consensual activities between adults. Assuming both parties in this case were adults and consenting, we call for the immediate dismissal of the misdemeanor charges against Bob Kraft and the decriminalization of prostitution, which we believe would deny human traffickers the ability to operate a black market. Until consensual sexual commerce is legalized, I fear these heinous acts will continue."

    ------

    The Libertarian Party platform includes the following plank:

    2.10 Sex Work

    The Libertarian Party supports the decriminalization of prostitution. We assert the right of consenting adults to provide sexual services to clients for compensation, and the right of clients to purchase sexual services from consenting sex workers.
