Our Caucus

Thank you for your interest in the Pragmatist Caucus. Below we have answered some frequently asked questions to better serve you!

FAQs


1. Do you want to change the platform or statement of principles?

Nope! Our caucus is inclusive of all self-identifying libertarians looking to improve the Libertarian Party and get candidates elected. Individual members have their opinions of the platform and SOP, and we encourage them to pursue those individually - our caucus is not looking to change the platform or SOP. Therefore, we support the LP platform entirely.

2. What are you trying to do?

We are trying to focus the Libertarian Party on its central goal of winning elections. Often the Party focuses on auxiliary goals: members, ballot access, messaging, etc. Those aren't the central goal - the reason we exist - of the Party, however. We want to turn our amazing platform into policy - by getting Libertarians elected to public office.

3. How are you helping?

We have a number of helpful resources on this website to assist candidates and campaigns in running for office. We are always looking to expand those resources if you'd like to help. We also endorse LNC candidates who understand the importance of projects like the Libertarian Frontier project, which in 2020 helped the Party elect its first state legislator in a generation. The importance of building a true framework for winning elections and creating strong state affiliates is past overdue. With your help, we are influencing the conversation at all levels in order to make the Party better and see that world set free in our lifetimes.
