Spring Lake District Library

Social time starts at 6:45 pm with the formal program starting at 7 pm.

As part of our continuing series of educational and social events across West Michigan, the Libertarian Party of West Michigan will have Dana Carver from Abrogate Michigan as a guest speaker.  She will be discussing the Abrogate proposal to legalize marijuana in Michigan, answering questions, and letting you know how you can help get this proposal on the ballot.

In addition, we will have social time, a chance to talk to Libertarian candidates for the upcoming 2018 election, and opportunities to find out how you can get involved in the Libertarian Party of West Michigan.  Please mark this event on your calendar and take a minute to let us know if you are interested or plan on going to this event.

The Party of Principle                                          Minimum Government~Maximum Freedom            

"Libertarianism is the view that each man is the absolute owner of his life, to  use and dispose of as he sees fit: that all man's social actions should be voluntary: and that respect for every other man's similar and equal ownership of life and, by extension, the property and fruits of that life, is the ethical basis of a humane and open society."                      

                                                              --Karl Hess (1923--1994)

"A secure individual...knows that the responsibility for anything concerning his life remains with himself...and he accepts that responsibility."                              --Harry Browne (1933--2006)


"No man's life, liberty or property is safe while Congress is in session."                                                                       --Mark Twain (1835--1910)


"That government is best which governs least."

                -- Henry David Thoreau  (1817--1862)         


“I like the libertarian view, which is to leave everyone alone. Even as a kid, I was annoyed by people who wanted to tell everyone how to live."                                                                                              --Clint Eastwood

The Libertarian Party of West Michigan holds monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of the month. Meetings start at 7:00PM. Social time begins at 6:30PM. Meetings are open to all and this is the place to go to get involved. Come join us and get to know some great people!

Although we are the third largest political party in the United States, the Libertarian Party is not afforded the comforts of corporate sponsorship as are the Republicans and Democrats.  Therefore, contributions of even the most modest amounts are essential in our effort to spread the message of liberty.
