The Libertarian Party is growing in New York state. This weekend, Onondaga County becomes the latest county to join this party that challenges the idea of an omnipresent government, instead looking to individual sovereignty as the way to peace and prosperity.
Onondaga County will be the 15th county chapter the party has chartered in New York state and the fourth this year.
Shawn Hannon of Syracuse is leading the central New York effort.
"Libertarian people try to keep the government out of your wallet and out of your bedroom,” he said.
