    The TP is in no way the LIbertarian party.
    The TP are virtually all ex Bush supporters.
    War Mongerers are in no way libertarians.

    The recently belated David Nolan, a co-founder of the LP, called Palin a shill and Beck a wannabe libertarian.

    One is an official political party, and the other is still just a movement.

    I would say TPM when considering some of the social issues....but also keeping in mind that there is a split in that regard, with some leaning more towards the Paul mentality than Palin.

    The Tea Party of course.

    Libertarians believe in personal freedoms that Republicans make illegal.
    That combined with the general libertarian belief of non interference in world affairs....

    Clearly that would the Tea Party. It began as an offshot of RP's grassroots, but it was very quickly co-opted as a way to keep "libertarian-curious" Republicans on the reservation.
