    Many are just embaressed Republicans but some are actually extreme nutcases.

    The extreme nutcases are actually immoral Liberals who won't often admit it unless pressed.

    You guys should embrace them.

    Libertarians are those that believe Governments role is simply to play referee but to stay the hell out of the game for the most part.

    Another form of GOP? That makes you even more ignorant about politics than it does religion, which is amazing.

    Not another name for republicans ,even thou some of the party,s platform is in agreement with them it is with some of the democratic dogma
    ECONOMICS
    we oppose to much govt interferance with economics and the function if free trade let hte market decide not the govt.s business .minimum wage and other restictions /regulations reduce the work force by limiting the job market for those with limited experience and education .

    GAY RIGHTS
    we oppose all laws that control and /or mandate homosexual l activity not the govt business to interfer with private choices .

    PROSTITUTION
    we support the legalization of prostitution
    again the private behaviour of the individual .

    DRUGS & PORNOGRAPHY
    Govt interference / control and prohibitation is a abridgement of liberty of expression goes along with prostitution freedom of the individual .

    FREEDOM OF SPEECH

    no limitations on freedom of speech by regulation of the communications media .

    ABORTION
    is one issue where we are somewhat divided and there is no *offical * policy on this matter
    DR PAUL even though he is personally against it (being a doctor ) would prefer to leave any legislation to the individual a states


    RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS
    garanteed by the constitution .

    some issues in line with republican thinking some agree with the democratic stance

    Then it seems like you've already decided what we are, and aren't really interested in discussing it.
