Why Libertorian? For the first 50 years of our nation, citizens lived under what the Declaration of Independence told us was our inalienable rights. In 1833, the Supreme Court, fearing the dissolution of the Union, refused to apply the Bill of Rights to State and Local government, thus permitting states to continue the institution of slavery. The history of liberty in America has been our struggle to reattain those rights. After the Civil War, the Fourteenth Amendment’s purpose was to nullify the the 1833 Supreme Court decision, but the Jacksonian Democracy had been so embedded in the Courts, that the justices refused to recognize it as such. The Libertorian is named to emphasize ┬áthe specific effort to restore those inalienable rights that the Supreme Court took from us in 1833, rights to be free from government interference.
