The Rise of the LP Mises Caucus

Over the past year an effort has been underway to grow the Mises Caucus of the Libertarian Party. After the loss of Joshua Smith for Libertarian Party Chair in 2018 the organizational efforts of the caucus have taken hold in order to push their ideas and candidates into the mainstream of the party.

What is a Mises Caucus member believe in? Well, it is pretty simple and tied to the main tenets of Libertarianism.

Our purpose is to promote economic literacy within the Libertarian Party as taught by the Austrian school of economics, to stress the importance of sound economics as critical to the Libertarian Party message, and to advocate applying the science of human action—praxeology—in Libertarian Party efforts to counter the statism of both Democrats and Republicans. We promote opposition to war, advocacy of decentralization, and privatization both politically and monetarily as the highest priority issues for all libertarians. As a community and work culture, our emphasis is on coalition building- working together on things which we agree, in order to achieve political objectives in the real world and expose non-libertarians to the superiority of governance by the market instead of the State.

Many in the caucus have not approved of the direction the party leadership has taken to gain national attention and get Libertarians elected to office. One of the main purposes of a political party is to win elections and that seems to go by the way side with the leaders of the party and the main party delegates.

The Mises Caucus is trying to fill that void by running candidates for party leadership that will actually be concerned about winning elections and exposing this country to the tenants of Libertarianism.
