    Hi everybody. I'm just trying to get a sense for how many people here are truly freedom-minded. Please vote to indicate your position, and feel free to elaborate, or bring up anything you'd like (or just vent your inevitable frustrations) in this thread! Thanks so much!

    *note that I've made a distinction between full-on anarchists/voluntaryists, Libertarian party supporters, and other libertarians who condone some form of minimal government.

    Interesting. How would you define your position (either by name, or description)?

    Do you deem this appropriate? I'm talking about people who only condone the most minimal form of government.

    I support pro liberty and freedom policies.
    I support the federal govts power that was given to them by our Constitution. Nothing more.

    So your objection to the vote in this thread is that I've indicated the Libertarian party, which you do not believe reflect your constitutional libertarian views?

    EDIT: I've added another poll choice, as my intent includes those who share your position.

    I once thought I was libertarian. Then I went to a few meetings of the libertarians and thought they all sounded like goddamn morons. So, I figured it wasn't really rational to think that I was doing it correctly, and all of them were doing it wrong... so I decided I was not a libertarian, and that libertarianism is fucking dumb.

    I tried, at least. :dunno:

    To me "big L" libertarians and anarchists are the same thing.

    I am a libertarian/conservative. If you want to do something to yourself , more power to you, just make sure it doesn't infringe on the rights of others. If you want to do drugs, go for it, don't come to me later demanding I need to provide for your addiction. If you want to poke another mans ass, with your penis, that is your choice, don't tell me I have to accept you as normal, just keep it to yourself. If you want to be a victim of liberalism and remain poor, that is your fault, so don't DEMAND the government to punish me for my success. The government is supposed to be there, to protect US citizens from other people who want to do bad things to US. That is their role, not to be nannies of the state and supply morons with stuff that keeps them alive.
