An edgy conservative who likes to smoke weed.
Larry Libertarian believes that workers have no rights, taxation is theft, racial discrimination should be legal, regulations that protect clean air and water should be rolled back, and everything else that a Republican believes...but he wants to legalize the marijuana, so all the 20-somethings think he's cool.

You're living on the king's land so pay him his rent/taxes. This is a libertarian society and he owns all the property in his kingdom and if you don't like it buy your own kingdom.

A republican in denial.
I just realized that republicans are known to be crazy and, while I still believe everything they preach, I don't like the crazy label, so I'll just call myself a libertarian and no one will know the difference.

An individual who supports and believes in liberty. Libertarians believe that people should be free to do whatever they want to do, just as long as their actions do not harm other people or infringe on the rights of others.

Libertarian Misconceptions:

1) "All Libertarians are stoners." Just because we want to legalize something, that does not mean we condone that behavior. People should be free to put whatever they want into their own bodies without the government's say-so. I may not agree with certain behaviors, but that doesn't give me the right to dictate other peoples' actions.

2) "Libertarians are fine with poor people starving in the streets." Actually, we think that's terrible. Libertarians typically oppose government welfare because it relies on force. It is immoral to forcibly take money from an individual in order to give it to another person. That is theft. Libertarianism promotes voluntarism and private charities. It is compassionate when one chooses to donate money to the poor, however, when the government forces people to do this, the act no longer becomes sincere.
Libertarian misconceptions (continued):

3) "Libertarians are isolationists." False. We're non-interventionists. We promote free trade and diplomacy with other nations. We do not support intervening in the internal conflicts of other nations. Doing so creates enemies and leads to potential blowback; which, in effect, does isolate us from the rest of the world.

4) "Libertarians hate old people." We don't hate old people. We just believe that social security is a bad deal for everybody. Todays retirees are getting less and less money than from what they were 'forced' to pay into the entilement program. If social security is such a great thing, why is it mandatory? We believe that people should be able to save for their own retirements however they see fit.

5) "Libertarians want a society where Wal-Mart controls everything." We're pro-free market. Not pro-corporation. Libertarians believe that corporations should be separated from the state. Therefore, there shouldn't be any special government hand-outs, protections, or priveledges. Monopolies very rarely occur in a pure free market. They almost always arise because the goverment grants special priveldges to a business. Contrary to popular belief, large corporations actually lobby the government for more regulations to hurt the competitors.
