Libertarian Party (United States)
The Libertarian Party (LP) is a political party in the United States that promotes civil liberties, non-interventionism, laissez-fairecapitalism, and limiting the size and scope of government. The party was conceived in August 1971 at meetings in the home of David F. Nolan in Westminster, Colorado, and was officially formed on December 11, 1971 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The founding of the party was prompted in part due to concerns about the Nixon administration, the Vietnam War, conscription, and the introduction of fiat money.
Libertarian Party of Arizona
The Arizona Libertarian Party was one of the earliest affiliates to be formed with it having 35 dues-paying members by late 1972 and was planning on holding a state convention to plan on how to seek legal recognition as a party. In 1973 the party was organized and elected its officials and the following year had grown to over 200 members.
Libertarian Party of Arkansas
In 2002 members of the party petitioned to place Amendment 3, a ballot initiative that would have eliminated taxes on food and medicine, but it was overwhelmingly rejected by 61% to 39%. However, the sales tax on food was later phased out through the passage of a bill following the amendment’s defeat.
