Libertarianism: No Longer an Option at

Email Print

Today the Libertarian Party national website,, has posted a poll on their front page:

Should more troops be sent to Afghanistan?

The correct libertarian position is, of course, withdraw US troops from Afghanistan. This is not an option on the poll. Someone who holds the correct libertarian position must be satisfied with voting “no,” along with those who want to “stay the course” in Afghanistan.

Does this mean we can expect coming LP polls like this:

Should income taxes be increased?

Should penalties against marijuana users be increased?

If you are an LP member, you might want to tell the national office and the national national committee members (two totally separate entities) how you feel about this:

National Office contacts

National Committee

And everyone should go to the poll and vote, even though the choices are limited.
