ABOUT OUR PARTY
Libertarians believe that you have the right to live your life as you choose, as long as you do not violate the equal rights of others. We believe that every individual has a right to life, liberty, and property -- these are rights we all possess naturally, before governments are instituted. Basically, "live and let live" is the libertarian way.
THE LIBERTARIAN PARTY
The Libertarian Party was founded in 1971 and is the only political party which respects you as a unique and competent individual. We strongly oppose government interference into your personal, family, and business decisions. Essentially, we believe all Americans should be free to live their lives and pursue their interests as they see fit as long as they do no harm to others.
Our platform is based on the principle that each individual has the right to control their own body, actions, speech, and property. Consequently, every individual is responsible for the actions and choices they make, all relationships and interactions between people should be voluntary, and the proper role of government is to secure individual liberties and help individuals defend themselves against force or fraud.
WHAT WE DO
The Libertarian Party of Orange County is the official affiliate of the Libertarian Party in Orange County, California. With the help of liberty-minded donors and volunteers, we increase public awareness of the Libertarian Party, encourage new Libertarian Party voters, and support Libertarian Party candidates in Orange County. We do this by building our party infrastructure through outreach, communication, and education efforts. Our intent is to provide libertarian solutions to issues, inform the public about libertarian philosophy, and present an alternative to the two-old parties and the two-party system.
The mission of the Libertarian Party of Orange County is to promote libertarian principles in government and expand freedom for every individual by electing candidates to office, influencing public policy, and educating the general public.
We envision a free and prosperous society where every individual's economic and personal freedoms are understood, respected, and protected by all people and governments.
We support and promote the principles of individual liberty, self-ownership, voluntary association, limited & responsible government, private property, free-market economics, individual responsibility, and equal rights.
ARE YOU A LIBERTARIAN? TAKE THE QUIZ!
The World’s Smallest Political Quiz is produced by the Advocates for Self-Government, a non-profit, non-partisan libertarian educational organization. It is a fast, fun and accurate assessment of a person’s overall political views. The Quiz presents a new political map that is far more accurate than the old “Left versus Right” line, based on ten questions on specific political issues.
