The Statement Of Principles Of The Libertarian Defense Caucus

Libertarianism has lost its way.The philosophy of John Locke, Adam Smith, Thomas Jefferson, Ayn Rand, Friedrich Hayek, and scores of others throughout time eternal, is being undermined. The Libertarian Defense Caucus seeks to return the philosophy of liberty back to the principles that have appealed to libertarians for centuries.

The Caucus adheres to the sacred tenets of classical liberalism; individualism, individual rights, spontaneous order, the rule of law, limited government, free markets, natural law, and the natural harmony of interests.

The Caucus holds that these principles of liberty are in harmony with the principle of a strong, robust, and dynamic armed forces. A strong volunteer armed forces being necessary to confront and defeat the threats to liberty presented by the global war on terrorism. Military action is always a policy of last resort. The Caucus holds that the policy of last resort should be the province of the United States government in defending the American people.

The Libertarian Defense Caucus believes that a global war on terrorism exists. Furthermore, the Caucus holds that the war on terrorism should be executed through diplomatic, economic, and only when absolutely necessary and proper, military means.

The Libertarian Defense Caucus seeks to reach out to like-minded individuals, societies, and nations in advancing the great cause of liberty. The Caucus holds that strengthening our alliances with democratic allies, and promoting political and economic freedom and reforms is necessary when in the vital and direct interest of United States, and her security.

The Libertarian Defense Caucus holds that only through preserving and protecting our security, our prosperity, and our cherished principles, can we advance the great cause of liberty and rightfully declare ourselves,

Libertarians.

The Libertarian Defense Caucus is the guardian of limited governance and liberty, wherever She finds herself under threat. The Libertarian Defense Caucus welcomes individuals who share these vital values. This Statement of Principles is a broad declaration of the core beliefs the members of the Caucus hold.

The Caucus does not endorse, nor align itself, with any one litmus test, doctrine, interest group or political party. The Libertarian Defense Caucus does not officially endorse political candidates or political parties. Individuals within the Caucus will express their own strongly held beliefs and endorsements within the Caucus of a particular political candidate or political party. These opinions of individual Caucus members are not to be seen as representative of the Libertarian Defense Caucus entire. It is the expressed desire of the Libertarian Defense Caucus to reach across political boundaries in the greater cause of liberty.

  1. Hello! I am a libertarian supportive of Thomas Jefferson’s theme of “Empire of Liberty”, and I was wondering: May I join your Caucus please?

    • Welcome to The Libertarian Defense Caucus.

      It is an honor to have you as the newest member of our august national organization.

      You may reach out to us at the enclosed e-mail address so that the LDC Administration may have a way of dispatching communications to you.

      The natural right to privacy is sacrosanct.

      Therefore, you may share with the Caucus as much information as you deem appropriate.

      You have the option of being featured on our website’s public membership list, or you may forgo that privilege.

      The members of The Libertarian Defense Caucus are from a diverse set of backgrounds with various philosophical perspectives.

      We are individualists united in the belief that the NAP is not necessarily applicable to the realms of foreign policy, geopolitics, and international relations, as a whole.

      Some members, including yours truly, do not believe the Non-Aggression Principle (axiom) possesses any moral force and therefore refuse to sign the LP’s membership ‘pledge’.

      The Caucus does not have membership pledges.

      Our principles are individual liberty, natural rights, strictly limited Constitutional government, belief in the irrepressible triumph of reason, and the inextinguishable conviction that all human beings possess a yearning to live in liberty.

      We have a presence on Facebook, if you are so inclined.

      On behalf of The National Co-Chairman of The Libertarian Defense Caucus, Mr. Kevin Bjornson, and myself, I extend to you the warmest of welcomes to the strong defense wing of the libertarian movement.

      Yours In Liberty,
