- What Exactly Is Libertarianism?
- Libertarianism is the view that you own yourself
and that no one else, not even government, has the right to interfere in your life so

registered Libertarians in Brevard County, and ultimately getting Libertarians
appointed or elected to as many positions in Brevard County and local municipalities as
possible. As that happens, elected Libertarians will whittle, then chop, then bulldoze
away layers of useless bureaucracy and meaningless laws that rob individuals of their
