Libertarian Links

The Hudson Valley Libertarians provide the following list of links to introduce you to libertarian thought. We do not necessarily endorse particular positions or actions of these organizations. Rather, we feel that libertarian thought and tradition provides an effective counter-force to the prevailing drum-beat for greater state authority. As we become ever more subservient to agents of the state, we are reminded of the familiar admonition: "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty."

The Hudson Valley Libertarians meet at 6:30 PM on the first Tuesday of each month at the College Diner in New Paltz, NY.
