Motion: Whereas governmental bodies in the ongoing COVID-19 crisis have stepped beyond their rightful powers, and 

Whereas no person or organization can claim to hold the principles of

liberty in times of peace and plenty who does not hold them as firmly in times of emergency,

Be it therefore resolved that the Libertarian National Committee make known its opposition to tyranny in humanitarian’s clothing, affirming that: No "emergency," whether declared or undeclared, shall be used as a pretext or justification for the limitation of any of the rights and freedoms of the individual, or for the expansion of the powers of government or any of its agencies, representatives, or member institutions.
