Adopted at the May 12, 2018 Convention in Anchorage, Alaska.

Preamble

As Alaska Libertarians, we believe that individuals have the right to life, liberty and property.

1.0 Personal Liberty

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

We support full freedom of expression and oppose government censorship, regulation, or
control of communications media and technology.

We support the rights recognized by the Fourth Amendment to be secure in our persons,
homes, and property.

Government exists to protect the rights of every individual including life, liberty and property.

The only legitimate use of force is in defense of individual rights-life, liberty, and justly
acquired property-against aggression.

We advocate that all members of society have abundant opportunities to achieve economic
success.

Property rights are entitled to the same protection as all other human rights. The owners of
property have the full right to control, use, dispose of, or in any manner enjoy, their property,

The best way to protect the environment is through a vigorous protection of private property
rights and a free market economy.

While energy is needed to fuel a modern society, government should not be subsidizing any
particular form of energy.

All persons are entitled to keep the fruits of their labor.

2.0 Money and Financial Markets

We favor free-market banking, with unrestricted competition among banks and depository
institutions of all types.

We defend the rights of individuals to form corporations, cooperatives and other types of
companies based on voluntary association.

We support repeal of all laws which impede the ability of any person to find employment.

Education, like any other service, is best provided by the free market, achieving greater quality
and efficiency with more diversity of choice.

We favor restoring and reviving a free market health care system.

Retirement planning is the responsibility of the individual, not the government.

We support a sufficient voluntary military force to provide against foreign aggression.

We support the repeal of the Patriot Act and the abolition of the Department of Homeland
Security and the Transportation Safety Administration.

American foreign policy should seek an America at peace with the world.

We support the removal of governmental impediments to free trade.

3.0 Rights and Discrimination

Government may not discriminate based on any individual’s rights, sexual orientation,
preference, gender, or gender identity. Group rights do not supersede individual rights.

We support the liberty of parents to direct the upbringing, education and care of their children
as a fundamental right.

We support electoral systems that are more representative of the electorate at the federal,
state, and local levels.

Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of individual liberty, it is the right of
the people to alter or to abolish it, and to agree to such new governance as to them shall seem
most likely to protect their individual liberty.

The ALP supports the process of inter-position and nullification of any laws which violates the
U.S. constitution or is detrimental to the sovereign rights of Alaska lands.

The ALP supports the end of all federal sovereignty of Alaska Lands
