1. A person who wants to downsize government, and government control over the lives of citizens.

2. Philosophically, a person who advocates an ideal balance between freedom and responsibility.

I am a libertarian. I am pro-choice. I am counter-feminist. I am pro-hemp. I am against the war on drugs. I am against political correctness. I am atheist. I insist on the separation of church and state. I think that capitalism is a dangerous servant and a fearful master, but indispensable to life just like fire, and like fire must be closely watched and contained --NOT by government, but by deeply embedded cultural sanctions. ( Ahem! home-school your children well!)

I am also very, very "green", since one planet is all we get, folks!
Some libertarians out there might not agree with all of the above....
