Civil Liberties

Libertarians stand for protecting your Federal and State Constitutional Rights, all of them without any exception or omission. There is no National Security exemption to the Bill of Rights. Politicians who ignore our Constitutional Liberties are the chief threat to our country.

Civil liberties are the foundation of libertarian principles, and that one of the few legitimate purposes of government is to protect individual rights. Government has a duty to protect rights not because they grant rights to individuals, but because we have instructed them to in our Constitution's Bill of Rights.

  • Government has failed to protect rights, restricted rights by requiring citizens to obtain permission to exercise rights, and has attempted to redefine what rights are and has imposed restrictions on rights. We believe that all laws and executive orders that mandate actions or restrictions should be immediately rescinded. We support the repeal of all laws that prevent individuals from exercising their civil liberties and oppose any attempt to maintain or add to the existing laws that restrict rights.
  • Government has violated rights by confiscating property without due process and by conducting searches and collecting data on citizens without warrants. We believe government officials who violate individual rights or personal property without demonstrating cause in open court should be legally held responsible and liable for their actions. Individuals have a right to be left alone to exercise their liberties and that government must not interfere with those rights without due process.
