    Re: Do you fully agree with your Party's Platform?

    I break from Libertarian Party in a few areas ...
    1) I'm pro-life. There are pro-life Libertarians, but we're a minority and against the platform there.
    2) I'm not a strict non-interventionist on foreign policy. I place myself in the realist camp when it comes to foreign policy. I think the US government's foreign policy should be based on promoting the interests of its citizens. I just happen to think that a vast majority of the time, non-interventionism is the best way to promote our interests.
    3) I'm not for free borders. Again, the US government is about doing what's best for its citizens. As a sovereign nation, we have a right to determine who can and cannot enter our nation.
    4) I'm not opposed to government providing infrastructure, education, and a basic social safety net. A lot of libertarians are against those things. Not sure what the platform says nowadays, but it probably still opposes it. The LP platform is pretty radical.

    I don't really consider myself a capital L libertarian. I usually vote for the party's candidates, but mostly as a way to register my disgust with the two mainstream party's candidates. I'm not a registered member. If a candidate came along from either party who was even moderately close to most of my views (or even just a handful of the ones I consider most important) I would vote for them.

    Most of it, I guess. Democrats are far too in bed with big business, but at least aren't trying to force anyone's religious mores on everyone else and aren't harboring racial oppression. They're not perfect, but the alternative is awful.

    I call myself a Liberaltarian. I believe in government efficiency, which is way more important than how much government there is (within reason). Bureaucracy means incompetent idiots screwing everything up and capitalism means that evil men rule the world. What do you want? Ruthlessness or incompetence? Faced with that Catch 22, many of the platform issues seem unimportant. I'm against the death penalty, I want the military to be significantly smaller, I want high taxes for rich people. I also want the government to help small business owners and reform entitlements. Hell, make everything more efficient. Get rid of the pork.

    I just wish we did away with the two party system. It's incredibly stupid.

    I have yet to find a party that I actually like more than I dislike

    I was a Republican most of my life, but ended up moving away from it because I realized I hated *almost* everything they stood for. I am not registered as anything, and while I always try to vote with my head, and not for who has a certain little letter beside their name, I always seem to end up voting Democrat. Still don't always believe everything that they stand for, but that one glaring issue is not enough to make me vote Republican. Never will be.

    Re: Do you fully agree with your Party's Platform?

    I don't have an actual political party because I am all over the spectrum when it comes to issues, both economic issues and social issues. When I do those "which candidate most closely matches you" quizzes, I generally end up with a person of one party being top, but then right after is a person from the other party, followed quite possibly from someone of an independent party, and it shuffles from there.

    I'm all for all primaries being open to every single voter, no matter their claimed party. I think that would better narrow down candidates to who the majority of all people really want instead of who the majority of the major parties want.

    At this point in time, the only party I'd join is a pool party.

    Re: Do you fully agree with your Party's Platform?

    I consider myself liberal leaning but am registered independant. My beliefs are all over the board. I think I am a libertarian leaning liberal in most social policies but more solid liberal in economics. I am pro-Constitution, but, as each issue comes up, it has to be decided how the Constitution aplies to that issue. I dont think there is any reason that a person would die of hunger in this country unless it is there decision. Does this mean I think everyone should have fancy food, no, but basic and nutritious food, yes. I think every person should be able to get basic healthcare without bankrupting them. I hope something better than the ACA get figured out but I dont agree with getting rid of the ACA until it does.

    I agree with the political party 100% of the time. I even agree with them whenever I don't. That's the point of a political party. If there is infighting in the party, the party becomes ineffective.

    A person that stands on principles should never run for congress. A mature adult that likes to be part of a winning team will work 100 times better than a good man that likes his party to lose so that he can feel good about himself.

    Yes, sir. I agree with my party 100% of the time. That's the whole point. Otherwise you should be independent or unaffiliated.

    That is scary. My sister-in-law is like that.

    Do you believe in them no matter what? Like if they told you to take up arms against the government, would you do that? I guess what I am asking is if you have a breaking point.
