"We look forward to the release of Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, Roger Ver, Ian Freeman, and all others who have been imprisoned for standing up for liberty."— Daniel O'Neill, organizer of the Enemies of The State Bash

NEW JERSEY, USA, June 5, 2024 / / -- President Donald Trump made a significant commitment to the libertarian community, promising to commute Ross Ulbricht's sentence to time served on the first day of his administration. This announcement was made during his speech at the Libertarian National Convention, where he sought the support of libertarian voters.

The night before President Trump's pledge, the New Jersey Libertarian Party and the Libertarian National Convention honored five prominent heroes who have been labeled "Enemies of the State" due to their political actions and beliefs. These individuals, including Ross Ulbricht, have faced imprisonment or exile for their advocacy of liberty and resistance to state overreach.
