4.02 – Third Parties Go to Ron Gunzburger's Directory of U.S. Political Parties to read information about third parties. Select one third party. Libertarian Party Answer the following questions: Discuss the general platform of this party. Libertarians could, to an extent, be summarized as social liberals and economic conservatives. They hold the firm belief that the government’s only duty is to uphold social order, but not to intervene in the individual’s private life; to maximize surplus, or what a utilitarian philosopher would call utility, while leaving the controversial issue of equity to solve itself by the undeniable forces of Adam Smith’s “invisible hand.” They are “pro-drug legalization, pro-choice, pro-gay marriage, pro-home schooling, anti-gun control, etc.” while also “anti-welfare, anti-government regulation of business, anti- minimum wage, anti-income tax, pro-free trade, etc.” What candidates have run as a member of this party?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
