    Sadly, we may never reach the prestige and success of the National Undisclosed Party.

    A libertarian can be personally pro-life, but politically pro-choice. That is my own position.

    So basically your a Democrat but don't like the regulations that the Dems do because they do more in your eyes.
    Democrats are more open to weed, want a smaller military, don't want foreign wars.

    I am all for less regulation, but we also have to balance it with the needs of society. Not all regulation is bad, but not all freely regulated things are good either.

    I leave it up to the dictionary. Like I said, some words have new meanings all the time, but trying to change the definition of libertarianism is like trying to change the definition of aluminum.

    Most reasonable post I have seen, another trait of your awesomeness. Ironically it is my own belief on Abortion as well. Maybe I am a left leaning Libertarian, whatever that is

    conservative, with some left wing thought....both Maine senators
    moderate.
    I'd actually place Susan Collins from Maine in the "moderate" group.

    There are lots of kinds of Republicans. Look at the people who tried to get the nomination in 2012. Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Jon Huntsman, Herman Cain, Michelle Bachmann, Tim Pawlenty....talk about a mixed bag.

    Just like Democrats are across the board. One the one hand you have Joe Manchin who would die before he'd give up his gun, then you have Nancy Pelosi who hates guns.

    Nobody in any party agrees on every issue. Your list was a good one.

    It seems that the primary difference between what we in America call a liberal, and a libertarian, is our position on fiscal responsibility. Libertarians (although not all of us) tend to be conservative fiscally, and believe that personal responsibility implies that the taxpayer has no obligation to fix your life, when you screw it up yourself.
