    Libertarians: which do you identify with more, the Left or Right?

    Sorry if this ticks some of you off, but I intentionally left out a "Moderate" option in the poll. I'd rather not have anybody sitting on the fence.

    If you're having trouble, think about this: when someone posts a thread with a title claiming the entire Left or Right is bigoted, delusional, etc, does your reaction change depending on which side is being targeted?

    Depends on the issue.

    If you're a libertarian, that's fairly obvious. I'm asking for a general judgment of your political views.

    I really hate the left-right spectrum, but if I had to choose for America's current political climate, probably the right. Arguments over the overall size of government take up a much bigger place than social issues in politics today.

    I do not follow the left vs. right paradigm.

    I actually read a very interesting article on this just a few days ago.

    Yes, I'm a libertarian myself and fully aware that they are fiscally conservative and socially liberal. I suppose a better way to phrase my question would be this: which is more important to you; a minimal welfare state, low taxes, the free market, etc; or nonaggressive foreign policy, being pro-gay marriage, and so on?

    Re: Libertarians: which do you identify with more, the Left or Right?

    I would like to pose a question in regards to socially liberal libertarians. Are those views held because the individual believes the government shouldn't legislate morals (gay marriage, prostitution, abortions, etc). Or are they held because libertarians believe these things are morally correct and assert that the government should recognize them as so and extend legality/benefits to such things? If the first is true, would that be considered a left of the spectrum opinion? Or more of a "small government" right end of the spectrum opinion?
