Welcome to the home page for New Jersey’s third largest and fastest growing political party, the New Jersey Libertarian Party! With over 11,000 registered Libertarians, our members are often asked what we stand for and who we are.
First, Libertarians seek freedom for all people, regardless of class, race, gender, age, religion, lifestyle, or any other clarifiers used by the mainstream parties to divide the American people. We simply want people to be free because they are human beings. Thus, we look at most policy issues from the stand point that people should be able to live how they want, so long as they are not hurting anyone else.
Next, we believe in our state, despite the high taxes, poor business climate, and nanny-state policies driving more of its residents across its borders, making it the number one state for emigration. We proudly support candidates committed to being part of the solution and dedicated to moving New Jersey toward a more Libertarian future.
Lastly, we believe the government should be accountable to its people and responsive to their needs. Thus, we support projects such as the Preempted Ordinance Repeal Project, Open Government Project, and Police Accountability Project. Through these projects we help to ensure that various local and state governments are responding to changes in the law, sharing required information with the public, and keeping its peace-keepers in check.

What’s a Libertarian?
Libertarians are fiscally responsible and socially compassionate. We are New Jersey's third largest and fastest-growing party. We believe liberty is the foundation of justice and a peaceful, prosperous America. We reject initiating violence against innocent people. We believe the role of government is to protect life, liberty and property.
