Love. Logic. Liberty.
The Libertarian Party of King County Believes That:
The answers to many of the problems facing our communities come from the same principles that have helped us become a prosperous and diverse nation: respecting every person's inalienable right to be secure in their life, liberty, and property; a free-market economy and the abundance and prosperity it brings; and a fierce dedication to protecting civil liberties and personal freedom. We value Love, Logic, and Liberty.
Liberty is an expression of love. Allowing others the right to think, feel, and love as they choose - as we expect them to allow us to - is the most basic expression of "loving thy neighbor". We must reach out to those in our community who are suffering from and struggle with the consequences of oppressive government regulation, taxation, and cronyism. We do not accept these. We will reverse the regressive policies that have created homelessness and poverty in our communities and respond to the needs of our communities ourselves instead of waiting on the government. This IS love.
A high tide raises all boats. We fight for a system that treats all with justice and fairness with no discrimination based on race, nationality, gender, religion, creed, or class. Freedom to be inventive and entrepreneurial has brought more people out of poverty than any government program. However, government regulation masquerading as being "for the public good" is often actually for the good of large business lobbyists and politicians. No corporation, politician, or individual should be above the law or use the law to harm others for their benefit. Less government power, lower taxes, and lighter regulations allow for both economic growth and fairness, bringing opportunity and prosperity for all. This IS logic.
We believe that - when we are free from the restraint of a stifling government and given the opportunity to think, feel and live as we choose - we can aspire to reach our own individual potential, and this is good for us all. Government’s only role is to help individuals defend themselves from force and fraud. We can and will embrace our diversity, respect our differences, and build our own communities together without asking the government's permission and without letting them stop us. We stand with those who want to work together as equals and not rule over one another with oppressive laws and unjust violence. This IS liberty.
