Libertarian Party HQ First Anniversary Party

The Libertarian National Committee Headquarters moved out of DC, where it had been in the famous Watergate building for decades, a year ago this month, to suburban Virginia.  Just in time too, since the Watergate garage just collapsed earlier this year.

Annual intern debate - Libertarians vs Conservatives

Debate: Libertarianism vs. Conservatism

Student Forum 
July 23, 2015 6:30PM
Hayek Auditorium 
Featuring Cato Institute Interns; and Heritage Foundation Interns; with an introduction by Mark Houser, Student Programs Coordinator, Cato Institute; moderated by Christopher Bedford, Senior Editor, Daily Caller
Libertarians and conservatives both claim to be advocates of individual liberty, limited government, and free markets. Sometimes these shared values lead libertarians and conservatives to similar conclusions about public policy. As a result, American political discourse often conflates libertarianism with conservatism, and proponents of “fusionism” see libertarians and conservatives as natural political allies.
However, the differences between the two political philosophies are at least as significant as the similarities. On matters such as national security and foreign policy, immigration, drugs, marriage, and the role of religion and morality in public policy, libertarians and conservatives clash with one another.
With the recent ascendance of many longstanding libertarian concerns—such as the surveillance state and militarized policing—into mainstream political discourse, we invite you to a timely debate about the two philosophies and their associated policy implications. Interns from the Heritage Foundation and the Cato Institute will go head-to-head to answer the question: Is libertarianism or conservatism the superior political philosophy?

Liberty on the Rocks tonight

Liberty on the Rocks and America’s Future Foundation are both happy to announce we are co-hosting a joint happy hour to celebrate the summer season. On Monday, June 29th, join us at BlackFinn in Farragut to grab a drink, cool off from the heat and humidity, and to make some mix/mingle with old and new pals. We hope to see you there!
As always, we will be at the back bar. BlackFinn is located near the Orange/Blue/Silver line and the Red line.
The mission of America's Future Foundation is to identify and develop young professional leaders for liberty. That mission is accomplished by providing principled young professionals with opportunities they could not find elsewhere including events, a job board, opportunities, the “Free the Future” blog, and chapters throughout the country.

Liberty on the Rocks is a non-profit libertarian organization designed to educate, connect, and activate liberty enthusiasts around the world. Through local chapters and events, citizens and activists throughout the country can increase the size of their networks, enhance their understanding of economics and the philosophy of freedom, widen their knowledge of local and national educational outlets, and increase their opportunities for involvement.

Each year the federal government spends almost $100 billion on corporate welfare in the form of subsidies, tax credits, and loans for businesses that have the right friends in Washington. This is on top of rules and regulations which favor well-connected businesses and block out their competition.
Do targeted tax breaks, tariffs, subsidies, and government regulations keep America competitive, or do they tempt companies to focus more on pleasing Washington than on their customers?
Please join the Charles Koch Institute for a conversation with a panel of experts who will explore how we can end corporate welfare.
