Libertarian Party of Maryland

Statue of Liberty Thank you for visiting the Libertarian Party of Maryland's website!  Are you familiar with libertarian ideas?  Read all about them here, or to see an animated introduction, click here. Please contact for information about the Libertarian Party of Maryland.

Libertarians believe that both individual liberty and personal responsibility are required in a civil society, and that government welfare of all types (social, individual, corporate, and political) rewards irresponsibility.  We oppose the Drug War and support the Second Amendment.  Please view the State Program of the Libertarian Party of Maryland, which explains how we can start restoring our liberties in the "Free State", and the National Libertarian Party Platform, which details how "we seek a world of liberty; a world in which all individuals are sovereign over their own lives, and no one is forced to sacrifice his or her values for the benefit of others."  Join the Libertarian Party of Maryland and help in our efforts to allow peaceful & honest people to live their lives in freedom!
