  Liberty Party - LoveToKnow 1911
LIBERTY PARTY, the first political party organized in the United States to oppose the spread and restrict the political power of slavery, and the lineal precursor of the Free Soil and Republican parties.
The Whigs, therefore, blamed the Liberty Party for Democratic success and the annexation of Texas; but - quite apart from the issue of political ethics - it is almost certain that though Clay's chances were injured by the Liberty ticket, they were injured much more outside the Liberty ranks, by his own quibbles.
The Liberty Party, abandoning therefore its independent nominations, joined in the first convention and nominations of the Free Soil Party (q.v.), thereby practically losing its identity, although it continued until after the organization of the Republican Party to maintain something of a semiindependent organization.

The free exercise of religion is a privilege and immunity guaranteed to citizens by the Fourteenth Amendment, but the ban on Congress from establishing religion is a federal policy and prohibition of rights that cannot be applied to the Fourteenth Amendment, and therefore, the States.
