One of four, and only four, possible political philosophies. The Libertarian believes in both personal and economic freedom.

The liberal, or left-winger, believes in personal freedom.

The conservative, or right-winger, believes in economic freedom.

The interventionist, or tyrant, believes in neither.

Virtually all political figures, and most of the electorate, are currently interventionist. Things will continue to deteriorate as long as this condition exists.

In most cases, there is no significant difference in candidates. The partisan antics involved in recent elections are therefore absurd. They both are on the same side, so to speak.
His libertarian leanings have put him at odds with his statehouse colleagues.

The commonsense idea that individuals have the right to make their own decisions regarding their own lives as they please, as long as they simply repect the same rights of others; also known as voluntarism. This means that governments exist to protect people from force and violence, and settle disputes; nothing more. For the politically challenged, libertarian means that other people are not your property.
In politics, there is no such thing as left or right, or liberal or conservative; there is only libertarian vs. statist (totalitarian). In America, libertarianism is long overdue.

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.

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.
