Liberty is the right to choose, freedom is the result of that choice.
God Bless America
 Wes Benedict, Executive Director of the Libertarian Party, issued the following statement yesterday:

"Many Libertarians around America are planning to go to Tea Party rallies tomorrow. I also expect lots of Republican activists and politicians to be there. But frankly, I don't think those Republicans belong there. The people participating in these rallies are saying 'There's too much government spending,' but Republicans, decade after decade, have supported massive increases in government spending. During the George W. Bush administration, Republicans in Congress supported spending trillions of dollars on foreign wars, a massive Medicare expansion, and banker bailouts. Republicans doubled the budget and doubled the federal debt. Why can't the Republican Party just admit that it loves big government?

"If I thought there would be many Democrats at these rallies, I'd criticize them too. However, I think it's safe to say that they'll be few and far between."

We must never forget that BOTH the Democratic Party AND the Republican Party have brought the United States to the breaking point. The core of both the GOP & the Democrats is a tax and spend policy that has eroded freedom in America.

Liberty is the right to choose, freedom is the result of that choice. You can protect your liberties in this world only by protecting the other man's freedom.

In the words of Benjamin Franklin,
“Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.”

For those Tea Partiers who support the Libertarian principles of very limited government spending, Constitutional liberty, and a non-interventionist foreign policy, the Libertarian Party is there for you.

The LP is America's third-largest political party, founded in 1971. You can find more information on the Libertarian Party at this website.
