Chair of the National Libertarian Party
Born in 1979, Nicholas Sarwark is an unabashed, second generation Libertarian with a strong commitment to fighting on the party's behalf against unfair ballot access obstacles and exclusion of qualified candidates from public debates.
Sarwark has been an active member of the Libertarian Party since 1999 and has served on the Judicial and Bylaws committees of the national party. He also served as chair of the Libertarian Party of Maryland and as vice chair of the Libertarian Party of Colorado where he played a key role in recruiting the state's 42 Libertarian candidates in 2014 and supported the passage of Colorado's historic marijuana legalization initiative in 2012.
Professionally, Nicholas Sarwark has been a criminal defense attorney and has worked over ten years in the private sector. He served as a deputy public defender in Colorado, trying more than 30 cases before a jury and arguing in front of the Colorado Supreme Court. He also has more than a decade of experience in computer consulting and sales. In 2014 he moved to Arizona with his wife and two children to join in the operations of a family business, the oldest independent auto dealership in Phoenix, founded in 1942.
Throughout his career, he developed a commitment to high-quality service which he now applies to raising the national Libertarian Party's standards for support of state affiliates, members and candidates.
14th August 2017 Tom Woods
Today's Tom Woods Letter, which all the influential people receive every weekday. Be one of them.
If I didn't know for a fact you all were lying when you said you weren't interested in libertarian gossip, I wouldn't periodically share some with you.
First (I'll get to the gossip in a second), today I had jury duty. I could have kept quiet about my views on jury nullification, but in practice that was easier said than done.
The judge asked the 56 of us something like, "Are there any of you who, no matter how silly or stupid what I tell you may sound when giving you [legal] instructions, would have any hesitation in following those instructions?"
I couldn't just sit there.
So I raised my hand — the only person to do so.
The judge was not confrontational or unfriendly, but when he asked me about this, I explained that I believed juries had the right to judge both the law and the facts.
As we went into recess, I was approached and told I had been dismissed.
No matter how silly or stupid, will you obey? Yes.
We have lots of work yet to do.
OK, here's the gossip.
I kicked off the Mises Institute's Mises University program this year with a talk called "What I Learned From Murray Rothbard."
I talked about all the history and economics I've learned from him, what his specific contributions were, and his willingness to look all over for the truth — even to people with whom he otherwise disagreed.
Nicholas Sarwark, the chairman of the Libertarian National Committee, didn't bother to listen to the speech before retweeting it with a little lecture:
Of course, I uttered not a single word about political strategy in the speech. Those of you who have listened to it know that.
I gave a speech celebrating everything about Rothbard that no libertarian worth the name could deny.
After all, why would somebody, given the chance to discuss the brilliant Murray Rothbard, want to waste time on anything other than his areas of specialty: economics, history, philosophy?
You think Sarwark, who tweets out safe, boring, chic-libertarian crap all day long, has read any of that?
And why should we take advice on political strategy from — of all people! — the chairman of the Libertarian National Committee?
Now Woods, why the infighting? you say.
Well, when someone misrepresents me to the point of saying up is down, I respond.
Plus, it's fun.
Sarwark takes no position on anything that isn't at least tacitly approved by the New York Times.
Any libertarian who falls outside the libertarianism-is-all-about-pot axis he attacks and ridicules.
"Please, Mr. Good Newspaper Editor, sir, understand that I'm a good and safe libertarian who keeps safely on the 3×5 card of allowable opinion that you have so wisely laid out for us!"
For what it's worth, our friend Michael Malice gave the LP National Twitter account a severe beatdown the other day when it celebrated North Korea for its marijuana laws.
Nobody emerges from a fight with Malice unscathed, so the LP withdrew the Tweet.
(Well, I escaped unscathed when I debated Michael on Alexander Hamilton in an Oxford-style debate before a live audience in New York, and beat the daylights out of him, but….)
Incidentally, I spoke at the Libertarian National Convention last year, and I've spoken at numerous state conventions. So the people seem to like me even if daddy-o doesn't.
Anyway, if these virtue-signaling ninnies are making you lose heart about libertarianism, join me in my private Facebook group when you become a Supporting Listener of the Tom Woods Show, and you'll have great discussions and form wonderful friendships with some truly outstanding folks.
But I warn you: we don't spend time announcing that we're against slavery, or cancer, or whatever. And we don't ask you to, either. We don't assume you're guilty until proven innocent.

Currently he is long term professor of Clinical Urology at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and also sits as a member of the AZNMA and is the only naturopathic physician on the AZ State Funded SW Prostate Cancer Awareness Council. Dr. Tamburri has been published in this area along with multiple lectures to fellow physicians at yearly professional conventions.
