Hudson Valley Chapter of the
Libertarian Party
New York

About the Libertarian Party

The Libertarian Party is a political organization that seeks to best represent the majority of Americans who believe in pushing forward policies of fiscal conservatism and social liberalism. You should consider voting Libertarian or joining the party if you want to:

  • Substantially reduce the size and intrusiveness of government and cut and eliminate taxes at every opportunity.
  • Sell your goods and services to willing customers without the government innaproppriately interfering in your business.
  • Decide for yourself how to live your life, without fear of criminal or civil penalties.
  • Have the government protect you from force and fraud, and nothing more.

Core Values

Personal Liberty

Individuals should be free to make choices for themselves and must accept responsibility for the consequences of the choices they make.

Economic Liberty

Libertarians want all members of society to have abundant opportunities to achieve economic success. A free and competitive market allocates resources in the most efficient manner.

Securing Liberty

The protection of individual rights is the only proper purpose of government. Government is constitutionally limited so as to prevent the infringement of individual rights by the government itself.


Our silence about any other particular government law, regulation, ordinance, directive, edict, control, regulatory agency, activity, or machination should not be construed to imply approval.

Chapter Meetings

The Hudson Valley Libertarians normally meet at 6:30 PM on the first Tuesday of each month at the Plaza Diner in New Paltz, NY. However, this month we will meet on Thursday, December 6 at 6:30 instead, to accommodate our speaker Larry Sharpe. Larry was our candidate for Governor in the recent election, winning a record 90,000 plus votes.
