The libertarian identity can sometimes be confused as there are many different types and colors of libertarians. At the core, there is something that unites all Libertarians. Dr. Jeffrey Miron with Harvard University explains what this unifying thread is and also how we differ from the traditional parties.
What does it mean to be a libertarian? Dr. Jeffrey Miron at Harvard offers one answer. According to Miron, libertarians have enormous respect for individual decisions. While other ideologies attempt to use government force to advance their ideas of how people should act or behave, libertarians think that individuals should be able to live their own lives as they see fit.
