    I think a firm and unbiased understanding of history can push a person to libertarianism (as unbiased as possible at least).
    My question is not how you arrived at the beliefs, but what they are. To find out, I went to the Libertarian Party website. I understand(and the first of these threads showed it), that these are not the issues of all Libertarians, but they are the largest part of the LP platform.

    The primary belief of almost every libertarian is being against the use of force against an individual.
    We each have our leans, collective to atomistic individual, but the that is the primary belief.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Excellent group of threads redress. I might do one to see how everyone agrees with my anti-federalist approaches to these particular issues.

    I would like to see that, though I already can guess how I would vote on most of them.

    Given your genuine intellectual curiousity regarding libertarianism and the fact that we've had some quality discussions in the past, I'd love to participate in this discussion. I'd be very interested in hearing where disagree with libertarianism as a general philosophy of government and how you differ on specific issues and proposed solutions. However, I'm not really sure how to start such a thread that wouldn't be just me calling you out.

    Btw, I'm really enjoying this series of polls you're holding. I haven't looked at the results yet, but I figure at a significant percentage of liberals would find common ground with libertarian positions on drug policy and immigration. And probably a lesser, but still healthy percentage agreeing with non-interventionism as a foreign policy.
