    I'll put it real simple, but that don't mean my intro is going to be short.

    I am a Minarchist Libertarian Capitalist, I only support having a government in the most limited capacities. Certainly, nothing beyond the Constitution, but at the same time even if the government obeyed the constitution yet infringed on personal freedom in the process, it is clear to me the government is in the wrong. Some have also described me as a Naturalist, since my interpretation is that our individual rights come naturally, and only we can give them up.

    I do think the government however is needed, as it was outlined in the U.S. Constitution: a federal military and federal security; eg. a military to protect our economic, political, and defensive interests, and a secured foundation for which a justice system is needed. But in neither case, something so over-bloated that we would have to give up our freedoms for. By over-bloated, I am talking about the government as it has stood for the last century.

    In the end, it comes down to the individual rights - "what makes you think you have any right whatsoever to coerce another person?" Surely one would realize that I am speaking without due process, and to drive the ball home in a simple phrase: "aborting a fetus coercively removes all individual liberties from the child."

    In other words, some may ask what I think about legalizing thievery or murder. But the fact of the matter is, thievery and murder are infringing on someone else's individualist freedoms, property rights. Abortion being no different for one recognizing the fetus as a baby.

    I am a supporter of Ayn Rand's Objectivism, the keys being individual rights, and the "separation of economics and government."

    Edit: More information -

    I am a 25 year old adult, a student of Savannah Technical College in Savannah, GA. I've attended a couple tea-party rallies. I am a gamer - I play many video games... am a fan of fantasy/science-fiction, politics, anime, etc. as well an amateur writer.

    That is because you shoot each other down.

    No problem with that, it is simply what Libertarians do.

    You are a polity of one, and that is the lonley......est number that you will ever know.

    Two sucks too.

    I know who the libertarians are on here, and I don't remember seeing any of us "shoot each other down".

    Depends on the Base Reason for your Libertarianism...

    Some are Potheads... Some are Gun Obsessed... (Count me in)... Some are about No Rules at all...

    Not a lot of Strength in that Chain...

    But hey, 2-3% of some Elections are Scratched by the Libertardians... (Just Kidding... Save your Post, JR!)

    But Seriously, Thanks for giving that Senate Seat in Montana to the DemocRATS... Barry Appreciates it!

    :)

    peace...
