CD 9 Republican Candidate Billy Prempeh and Libertarian Candidate Sean Armstrong Agree to Debate but Need the Democratic Candidate William Pascrell to Join Them

New Jersey—August 12th, 2022—The residents of the newly formed 9th New Jersey Congressional District have a choice between three candidates. Many are new to this re-drawn district and may not be familiar with any of these candidates or even their sitting congressman. To help them learn about the choices they may have, two of the candidates are calling for public debates to help residents familiarize themselves with these three choices.

NJLP Statement on the FBI’s Authoritarian Activities

New Jersey – August 10, 2022

On August 8, 2022, the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. Many on the left, who previously spent years decrying law enforcement as corrupt and calling to defund the police, are celebrating this raid and denying the possibility of FBI corruption. Conversely, those on the right who have spent years curtailing civil liberties, bolstering law enforcement’s powers, and defending police as they terrorized communities, see this raid as political persecution.

NJLP Statement on Murphy’s Gun Control 3.0 Package

New Jersey – July 4, 2022:

In a state where respect for gun laws is akin to Nazi Germany, Governor Phil Murphy has even further violated and restricted your right to individual sovereignty. The latest “Gun Control Package 3.0” (because 1.0 and 2.0 did not work), is uncategorically the worst legislation in the country.

The NJ Libertarian Party Remains Committed to Protecting the Natural Right to Self Defense

New Jersey – May 23, 2022:

On Saturday, May 14, 2022, the lives of ten innocent people were senselessly taken and we join the nation in mourning this unimaginable loss. In the wake of this tragedy, we must remain committed to protecting the natural rights of citizens to own firearms to protect themselves and their loved ones. In New York and New Jersey alike, police departments have significant discretion in denying people carry permits. Since, as the Supreme Court has ruled, police officers have no duty to protect citizens, innocent people are often left without any means to protect themselves against violent individuals. No one else should have to die before the state stops violating citizens’ natural rights to self-preservation by repealing gun laws.

Home Intrusion/Data Collection Reaches New Heights in Hazlet, and it’s Not a Good Thing

Hazlet – April 22, 2022: The Hazlet Police Department has announced that the municipality has contracted with Appraisal Systems Inc. to inspect every home in the Township, inside and out, under the guise of property tax revaluations.

While such revaluations take place periodically under the law, the unprecedented nature of this level of intrusion goes in a dangerous new direction.  It is a further deterioration of civil liberties which opens the door to so many possible rights violations.  With no restrictions on what can be examined, residents are losing their privacy in the most complete way possible.

Ed Durr Advocates for Progressive Government Handout

New Jersey – March 24, 2022:

The Republican Party once again showed that they are merely speed-limit progressives. State Senator Ed Durr introduced the Gas Price and Inflation Tax Credit Act to give $500 to households making up to a quarter of a million dollars. This will cost taxpayers nearly $1.5 billion! Not even Democrats are calling for this ridiculous payment. Durr cites inflation and rising gas prices as his reason for expanding the welfare state. Of course, further increasing government spending will only fuel a worse inflationary crisis.

MERCER LP CALLS FOR CLEVELAND CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL TO TREAT TANNER DONALDSON

Mercer County, New Jersey-- Nine-year-old Tanner Donaldson is suffering from stage 5 chronic kidney disease. In 2018, Richardson was approved for a transplant. After four long years of searching, the family discovered that Tanner’s father, Dane Donaldson, is a match. The hospital denied the transplant because Tanner’s father isn’t vaccinated against COVID-19. This policy is nothing short of both cruel and indefensible.

NEW JERSEY – AUGUST 23, 2021: Whereas, it is the principled belief of the New Jersey Libertarian Party and many others that individual rights must not be denied, abridged, or enhanced by Government at the expense of other people’s rights, on any basis, including – but not limited to – sex, gender identity, wealth, race, color, creed, age, national origin, political preference, biological factors, or sexual orientation and,

Whereas, freedom and responsibility cannot be separated and exclusion of moral approval or disapproval is deliberate: peoples’ rights must be recognized; the wisdom of any course of peaceful action is a matter for the acting individual to decide,

For those voters, who are concerned about both government spending/taxes/debt and interference in their personal lives, Tosone will offer the Libertarian Party solutions.

March 28, 2018

During the 2016 presidential campaign, some libertarian-leaning voters wanted to give Donald Trump the benefit of the doubt. As a candidate, Trump talked about drastic reductions in spending and taxation, along with “draining the swamp” of its career politicians. He said he wanted to reduce spending for defense of other countries and wars of foreign intervention. He even leaned toward allowing states to determine their own marijuana policies. Whatever libertarian impulses Trump the candidate seemed to have, though, his actual performance as president stands in stark contrast. Donald Trump is the opposite of a Libertarian.

During his campaign, Trump said he was “in favor of medical marijuana 100 percent,” and that recreational marijuana policy should be left to the states. On that issue, he sounded moderately libertarian. Once elected, Trump appointed Sen. Jeff Sessions as attorney general. Sessions promptly rescinded the Barack Obama–era Cole Memorandum, a directive from former Deputy Attorney General James Cole that had effectively prevented the federal government from initiating marijuana prosecutions in states that had legalized cannabis.

NJ Libertarian Party Fighting For Lower Property Taxes

Tennent, NJ, September 20, 2017 –

I love New Jersey. My family has lived here for four generations. Unfortunately, New Jersey has become a difficult place to live for anyone other than the extremely wealthy. It doesn’t have to be this way.

In my town the average homeowner will pay nearly $150,000 in property taxes over the next 10 years. This fact represents a serious failure of public policy. A community should be more than a school district where its graduates can’t even afford to live.
