A libertarian is someone who believes wholeheartedly in the rights and freedoms of all people, so long as those rights and freedoms don't cost the libertarian a dime or inconvenience him in any way.
Get your crippo ass up those stairs yourself, cos my tax dollars ain't paying for no ramp. I'm a libertarian.

Libertarians support maximum liberty in both personal and economic matters. They advocate a much smaller government; one that is limited to protecting individuals from coercion and violence.
Libertarians tend to embrace individual responsibility, oppose government bureaucracy and taxes, promote private charity, tolerate diverse lifestyles, support the free market, and defend civil liberties.

A libertarian is consdiered to be the "classic liberal" (i.e. the true american who believes in the principles this country was founded upon---private ownership and individual rights). What is an American, you ask? An American is a man who accepts others with open arms, who lets others live as they please because he expects the same respect from them. An American is a man who knows his rights, and defends them, but more importantly knows and respects the rights of his fellow man. An American is a man with honor and modesty, not a man who boasts his superiority over others. An American is a man who knows that his rights end where the rights of others begin, and that ALL men are created equal under whatever God he worships.
A libertarian passed by me the other day and gave me a dirty look, so I went into his home and stole all his property, seeing as how I'm an IRS agent and can legally get away theft.

"Balance the federal budget now, not 15 years from now, not 20 years from now, but now. And throw out the entire federal tax system, replace it with a fair tax, a consumption tax, that by all measurements is just that. It's fair." - Gary Johnson, Libertarian Party nominee for President of the United States in the 2012 election

The political party that believes that the government should only be responsible for protecting citizen's physical property, including their lives.

Everything else is up to the individual and their personal desires/choides, including abortion, gun rights, drug use, gay marriage, charity.

Under a Libertarian governement, none of the above would be regulated nor prohibited, and the companies that would provide those services would be privatized, so that people could enjoy the best services at the lowest prices because companies would want to supply it, since the government wouldn't be funding or supporting them.

In other words, everything is based on the truth and accountability of the individual.
"I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine."
