Specifically, Libertarian candidates have pledged to sponsor and work diligently to pass legislation that will:

“A lot of Democratic and Republican politicians talk a good game when it comes to getting government down to size,” said Nicholas Sarwark, Chair of the Libertarian National Committee. “But almost never do they make bold, specific pledges like these, because they’re fueled by special interests who aim to expand government. So their campaign promises are either vague and vacuous, or they threaten more government.”
