Goodrich for Congress in Alabama's Fifth District

I'm Craig Goodrich, the 1996 Libertarian candidate for US Congress here in the Fifth District (a 40-mile-wide strip across the top of the state), and I'm glad you stopped by. The 1996 election is over with, but so far it doesn't seem to have changed anything. The '98 elections are over with, too, and they seem to have changed even less. Can the Republicans really be as dumb as they seem? So I'm still here, getting an early start for 1998 2000.

Something has gone terribly wrong in Washington. Our government was founded on the principles that all men have certain inalienable rights -- life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness -- and that the purpose of government is to secure these rights.

Yet nowadays many Americans believe that our Federal government is the greatest threat to our lives, our liberty, and our property.

This must be stopped.

Neither the Republicans nor the Democrats are really interested in even taking the first steps toward the radical reduction of the Federal role in American life that restoration of our freedom will require. Both are too intimidated by the wine-and-cheese Washington special interest groups and the mass media to do more than propose innocuous but nice-sounding "reforms," which never accomplish anything except to spend more of your money and make another point in a reelection-time TV commercial.

The Libertarian Party, America's third-largest party, has never wavered in its advocacy of individual liberty and individual responsibility, at all times and on all issues, without exception.

If you've never heard much about libertarianism before, you may wonder about who we are and what we believe. I hope you'll be my guest at this site long enough to find an answer, and I hope you find that answer satisfying.

Here are several position papers I've written to emphasize my own views on subjects of concern to all of us. They were written for the 1996 campaign, so events may have overtaken some of them, but my opinions haven't changed:

One of the best general introductions to libertarianism on the Web is the Libertarian FAQ by the Advocates for Self-Government.

To learn more about the Libertarian Party and our views on current issues, take a look at our official Philosophy and Positions. Another good introduction is Cato Institute President David Boaz' new book Libertarianism: A Primer. You may also enjoy browsing around these sites, which are among my personal favorites:

Does the Government do a good job?
